Description - In the Vernacular: A Generation of Australian Culture and Controversy by Stuart Cunningham
Foreword by Meaghan Morris (leading cultural studies expert) In the Vernacular brings together important writing over a twenty year period from one of Australia's leading scholars of media, culture and policy. This insightful book engages with the notion of Australia's lack of a sense of cultural history, and the ways in which critical engagement with it do not complement or reinforce each other. It reflects upon Australia's still-neglected film heritage, the achievements of Australian television in recent decades and engages with the global debate on multi-ethnic societies. In the Vernacular presents this history to the present, exploring the ideas that industrial and social trends in media, communications and culture are outstripping the frameworks that were erected to deal with them.
