Anthem Press is delighted to announce the publication of *Mediating
Multiculturalism: Digital Storytelling and the Everyday Ethnic* by Daniella

*‘Trimboli demonstrates how everyday multicultural digital artworks are
able to leap beyond the** contradictions inherent in focusing on cultural
difference to approach Australian storytelling as** though for the first

—Sneja Gunew, FRSC, Professor Emerita, Department of English Language and
Literatures/Social Justice Institute, University of British Columbia, Canada

*‘Daniella Trimboli gives us both an intimate portrait and a sharp analysis
of the Australian world** of multicultural digital storytelling. But she
also uses this field to stage an encounter between** Australian writings on
multiculturalism and global critical social theory. What we end up with is**
one of the most astute,critical and scholarly investigations of
multiculturalism I have read.*

—Ghassan Hage, Professor of Anthropology and Social Theory, School of
Social and Political Science, University of Melbourne, Australia

*‘Mediating Multiculturalism brings together an incisive exploration of
theoretical ideas and** rich case studies to oversee an original analysis
of the intersection of digital storytelling and** multiculturalism.
Trimboli’s examination of the complexities in this relationship provides
innovative approach to the critical, cosmopolitan possibilities of creative
digital interventions.’*

—Greg Noble, Professor, Institute for Culture and Society, Western Sydney
University, Australia

This book addresses a historical problem—multiculturalism—using
contemporary phenomena: digital storytelling. ‘Mediating
offers an innovative model for reconceptualising cultural difference in a
highly mobile and contradictory global moment.

Daniella Trimboli is a postdoctoral research fellow in cultural studies at
the Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation, Deakin
University. She is an associate editor of the *Journal of Intercultural
