Ben Etherington is Senior Lecturer in the School of Humanities and Communication Arts and a member of the Writing and Society Research Centre at Western Sydney University. His monograph, Literary Primitivism (2017) argues for a global conception of primitivism as a utopian reaction to the apotheosis of European imperialism. He is currently a Chief Investigator on the three-year Australian Research Council project Other Worlds, for which he is working with eminent Australian writers, including Alexis Wright and J. M. Coetzee, to explore the idiosyncratic ways in which writers create literary worlds. He is also known as a public commentator on universities and Australian literature. Jarad Zimbler is Senior Lecturer in English Literature at the University of Birmingham, and Marie Sklodowska-Curie Global Fellow at the University of Illinois, Chicago. His previous publications bring together a range of approaches, from narratology and stylistics, to book history and the sociology of literature. His first monograph, J. M. Coetzee and the Politics of Style (Cambridge, 2014), was shortlisted for the 2016 University English Book Prize. In his new research project, Literary Communities and Literary Worlds, he examines several mid-twentieth-century authors who moved from one literary field to another, and who re-shaped their practices in response to their new literary environments.
