    Abstract

    The 2011 reality television series Go Back to Where You Came From used established narrative modes of stunt memoir, testimony, and conversion to start a public conversation about Australia's recent treatment of asylum seekers. This essay explores both the cultural possibilities and the pitfalls of the series' textually-hybrid approach.
