Journal of the Association for the Study of Australian Literature

JASAL (ISSN 1833-6027) is a fully peer-reviewed journal of scholarship on Australian Literature, published by the Association for the Study of Australian Literature (ASAL). We publish one or two general issues each year and one or more guest-edited special issues on particular themes, along with the annual guest-edited conference issue. JASAL welcomes essays that consider Australian literature in all its forms (fictional, critical, print, filmic, and so on) and in terms of its socio-political and cultural contexts. We encourage readers to become ASAL members and to visit the ASAL website for information about conferences and other activities. The Managing Editors of JASAL are Ellen Smith and Tony Simoes da Silva.
