Marek Haltof (English) recently published a book in Polish on Australian Cinema. On the Screen Construction of Australia (Gdansk: Slowo/obraz terytoria, 2005). This is the second, updated and expanded edition of the book. The first one was published in 1996 by the Lódz Film School University Press.

Carol Strauss Sotiropoulos (Modern Languages and Literatures) wrote "Scandal Writ Large in the Wake of the French Revolution: The Case of Amalia Holst," an article published in Women in German Yearbook: Feminist Studies in German Literature and Culture. It examines the book-length treatise of a north German proto-feminist teacher and school director writing in 1802. "Feminist hopes during the French Revolution were all but quashed following the Terror, when a pan-European conservative backlash snuffed out public devate over improving women's status and social conditions," Sotiropoulos explained. "Amalia Holst was one of few women willing to put her reputation at stake to rekindle these debates. She wrote the treatise titled 'On the Purpose of Woman's Advanced Intellectual Development.'"
