The work of editing the journal issue and refashioning it as a book was carried out under grants from the Australian Research Council and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. My research activities in Australia were hosted by the English Department of the University of Queensland and the Humanities Research Centre of the Australian National University.

Each stratum has its own self-generating mode of activity and effectivity: each is a mini-subjectivity.
