Alexis Wright

Centring Indigenous Stories, Worlding Possibilities
Sous la direction de Marilyne Brun et Estelle Castro-Koshy

This special issue on Alexis Wright’s work includes ten academic articles, seven of which focus on Wright’s Carpentaria (2006), while three discuss the author’s two other novels – Plains of Promise (1997) and The Swan Book (2013) – and oeuvre as a whole. The issue also contains art and poetry by Australian Indigenous creative artists, as well as the reprint of a review of Carpentaria and a reflexive essay on translating Wright’s works into Chinese. From the centrality of Indigenous epistemologies in Wright’s oeuvre to her narrative creativity, representation of country, commitment to a sovereignty of the mind, humour, and refusal of genres, the various contributions to the special issue propose original analyses and approaches to better understand Wright’s nuanced, complex novels and non-fiction works.
