Deep Dives

The Continuum Deep Dive stream is a place for participants to share brief sparks of in-depth knowledge.

Have you been researching something niche for your next article, short story or novel? Have you spent six months in the State Library of Victoria archives and have some weird stuff you want to share?

You don’t have to be an expert or an academic, you just have to really know what you’re rambling about.

Deep Dive slots are approximately 20 minutes, with space for shared question time at the end of each session. Sessions run 2 x 20 minute presentations and 1 x 15 minute Question and Answer, with presentations paired by the moderator.

All sessions will be moderated for length and audience participation.

Confused? Here are some of 2018’s Deep Dive topics:

  • Portal Fiction and the Immigrant Experience

  • Why Do We Need Monsters?

  • Terms and Conditions: Awards and their Value

  • Abandoned Wenches and Rebellious Hussies: Convict Women in Van Diemen’s Land
