Noel Coward’s Singapore Sling

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This piece investigates Noel Coward as a popular culture figure
who maintains specific resonances with the Australian and New
Zealand present. I explore how configurations of Coward have
changed, particularly in the last ten years, and how these changes
can be conceptualised through movements in theories of identity,
sexuality and belonging structures. The article carefully umavels
configurations of "centre" and "periphery," "coloniser" and "colonised," while recognising the specificity of these terms within
contemporary Australia
