In-Between the Memorial, the Library and the Lesbian: Moments in Postcolonial Community

Katrina Schlunke


This paper is a multi-faceted engagement with the idea of hybridity and postcolonial community in a settler culture, questioning the relationships between movement, identity and knowledge through the figuring of the memorial, the library and the lesbian. The paper carries those concerns within its own creations. It was written on Gundungurra land, first presented on Eora country and may be read anywhere. I would therefore like to warn readers that I refer to the Myall Creek massacre, which may cause distress, particularly to the Wirrayaraay people.
