The long-awaited book, A Companion to Australian Media, is now in print and available. Edited by Professor Bridget Griffen-Foley, it is published by Australian Scholarly Publishing (North Melbourne). I am one of more than 300 contributors to the “Companion“, and wrote the entries on film reviewing and educational media. I joined an august group in this massive project, which is the result of many years of work by Professor Griffen-Foley, as the result of an Australian Research Council Discovery grant.
The book retails for $88.00 (Aust): with about 415,000 words and 543 closely packed pages (including an impressive 37 page index), it’s great value. First entry: “A Current Affair”; second entry is “Phillip Adams”; and the last entry is “Zines”.
You can listen to Bridget Griffen-Foley discussing the Companion, on the podcast of ABC Radio National’s “Media Report” program, broadcast on 9 October 2014.
