THE DIVERSITY LIE

“I’m reminded of Gayatri Spivak’s article ‘Can The Subaltern Speak?’. In the work, Spivak writes of how despite the most well-meaning of efforts, the production of western academia is to perpetuate western economic interests.

And the reality of Australian literature is that, despite the most well-meaning efforts, the production of Australian literature it is to perpetuate its whiteness.”
