The first book-length publication from EL Publishing entitled “Language
Land and Song: Studies in honour of Luise Hercus” was published online
today, 2nd May 2017.
The volume is a collection of 37 chapters edited by Peter K. Austin, Harold
Koch and Jane Simpson, and covers a diverse range of topics around the
themes of languages, locations, history, and songs in Aboriginal Australia.
The volume honours the work of Luise Hercus (see
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luise_Hercus), who has been a leading figure
in the documentation of Australian Indigenous languages for more than 50
years. Her work ranges from salvage studies to detailed descriptions of
individual languages, all richly contextualised by documentation of songs,
stories, relationships to land and biographies. The papers in this volume
represent contemporary research on these topics and were written by some of
the leading researchers in linguistics, history, anthropology,
ethno-musicology and education.
Further information, including the Table of Contents and Information about
Authors, is available on the Volume page (at
http://www.elpublishing.org/book/language-land-and-song) and individual
chapters can be downloaded for free from the Publication page (at
http://www.elpublishing.org/publicationpage/601). The volume is fully
indexed and searchable via the EL Publishing Search feature.
All the chapters have been fully double-blind peer reviewed and are
distributed as open access under Creative Commons CC-BY-NC
(Attribution-NonCommercial) licence. A hardback print version of the book
is being prepared for sale, and arrangements for purchase will be notified
via the EL Publishing website soon.
