[Extract] This paper is concerned with the future of literature and literary criticism in the university, and in particular with the criticism of Australian literature. It was conceived as a contribution to the occasional series on this topic begun by Leigh Dale in the October 1999 issue of Australian Literary Studies. I argue that there are three urgent issues facing Australian literary criticism: finding a place for the teaching of literature (and specifically Australian literature) in the academy; finding the appropriate audience for that teaching; and finding a voice in which to articulate a critical scrutiny of that literature.
