Provocation #1 asks: What unchallenged orthodoxies still govern Australian cultural production? Are we receptive to new voices or are in we living in a literary echo-chamber? How do elite groups govern the cultural field?

Papers should be no more than 20 minutes in length and might address the following topics:

– Awards, grants, anthologies and reviewing networks
– If the centre is still white… Why?
– Generationalism or institutionalism?
– New establishments; new orthodoxies
