Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter explores the experiences of Australian journalists who worked on Fleet Street between 1900 and the outbreak of the Second World War. Concentrating on several individuals, it considers the powerful lure of Fleet Street, the reasons for departure from Australia, first impressions of London, the opportunities provided by being abroad, experiences of success and failure, working and social life, and the particular challenges and opportunities facing women journalists. It examines the theme of education in the public writings and private reflections of Australians who worked on Fleet Street, and reflects on the circularity and complexity of the imperial journalistic experience.
