‘Australia and the World’ Book Series

The Australia and the World book series was established by the ANU Australian Studies Institute (AuSI) to promote the study of Australia, share research and bring an Australian perspective to comparative, transnational and international projects.

The Editorial Board includes members from a wide range of disciplines to reflect the multidisciplinary mission of AuSI and the Australia and the World series. The Board aims to publish one edited collection and one monograph or micrograph each year.

The inaugural book in the series, Rethinking Social Media and Extremism, was launched in August 2022 in partnership with ANU Press. Edited by Professor Shirley Leitch and Professor Paul Pickering, this bold book includes 9 interdisciplinary chapters from various ANU scholars, offering a broad range of perspectives on violent extremism online and how to stop it.

The Australia and the World book series invites manuscripts with a focus on the study of Australia, or comparative research involving Australia, from a wide range of academic fields. Edited collections, monographs and micrographs may also result from AuSI workshops and conferences.
