Abstract

Gillian Long used a practice led methodology to write a hybrid popular/postcolonial historical novel, aimed at redressing three precedent texts. She found how narrative conflict is constructed, mediated and justified was most relevant to her ethical deliberations of the cultural metanarratives carried by her novel Shadows in the Cane.
