dc.description.abstractIn the conclusion to her germinal study of sex, race and nation in Australian women's writing, Along the Faultlines (1995), Susan Sheridan questions the prevalent orientations of Australian and literary cultural studies. In particular she draws attention to its 'fixed and known directions' in understandings of cultural nationalism. In that book, and elsewhere, Sheridan's work explores the relationship between women writers as makers of cultural meaning, along with questions of national identity. Most specifically, it questions the feminist thesis that women have been routinely or consistently excluded from hegemonic definitions of Australianness by recognising that white women have been accommodated by these definitions, and they have often accepted the terms and conditions of this inclusion.
