Introducing this issue of Southerly as guest editor, Michael Brennan promises a diverse array of writing and approaches to the topos in question. Absence and Negativity features a number of papers presented at an eponymous conference in July 1999. Among other things, these papers attempt to revise some of the enduring stereotypes and cliches about Australian literature and critical writing about literature.
