The much anticipated Crossing Cultures from CDU Press was launched by Vice-Chancellor Helen Garnett, and took take place at the Postgraduate Symposium, 'Right Place, Right People, Right Time', reception held in the Chinese Gardens.

Crossing Cultures: Art, Politics and Identity is an exciting demonstration of the quality of new research being undertaken in Canberra and Darwin.

Covering seemingly diverse topics in art, society, material culture, Indigenous issues and history, the volume brings together scholars who are interested in understanding and communicating the ways in which people of the Australian region represent their worlds.

Crossing Cultures is a valuable addition to the literature for all those interested in analysing both contemporary and historical cultural processes.
