The words between me and the moving landscape
cut me off in a remote distraction,
they merge broken with things I see.

Jack Lindsay, ‘Elegy of Ann – The Return’

RESEARCH OUTPUTS


Chief Investigator on this project, Professor Anne Cranny-Francis has completed a number of publications based on the research, notably a web site, Jack Lindsay: writer, Romantic, revolutionary (www.jacklindsayproject.com) that includes an edited typescript and transcription of a previously unpublished analysis of his own work by Jack Lindsay, and is currently preparing a book manuscript about Lindsay’s life and work. 

She has also given papers based on the research including, in May 2017, a keynote address, ‘Jack Lindsay: Romantic Rebel’ as the Sophia Holland Annual lecture for the Australian Federation of Graduate Women (NSW).  Other papers have addressed key issues for Lindsay’s work such as interdisciplinarity and aesthetics.

In 2014 Anne organized a Symposium about Lindsay’s work, titled Jack Lindsay and the Politics of Knowledge, which included as keynote speaker, Helen Lindsay, daughter of Jack Lindsay.  A number of the papers were subsequently published in Australian Literary Studies Vol. 30, Issue 4 (2015): these included papers by Helen Lindsay, Paul Gillen, Nicole Moore, Christina Spittel and CI, Anne Cranny-Francis.
