Announcement 1

Given the heartening way in which my paper, “Life-world of exclusion: Racial hermeneutics of the Quarters for Asiatics, North Head Quarantine Station” was received at the very recent quarantine project conference held in the former First Class Precinct at North Head Quarantine Station, this blog will now expand its scope to cover all quarantine stations, in the West as well as in the East. Conference delegates from Japanese universities commented to me personally that my paper had opened the door for comparative quarantine studies linking Australia to its Asian neighbours. 

As of today – the fifth anniversary of my near-death experience which on one level had to do with the North Head Quarantine Station – I am changing the tagline of my blog from Interpretations of North Head Quarantine Station to Interpretations of North Head and other quarantine stations, in Australia and overseas. This is going to be a long-term project which hopefully will result in a book.
