Why Artists Should Get Political
Neilsen, Philip (2003) Why Artists Should Get Political. Why Artists Should Get Political, p. 7.
This article analyses the recent phenomenon of very high profile international creative authors such as novelists making an intervention as social commentators upon political and social issues, apparently contradicting the 'death of the author' theory which questions the stable identity or agency of authors.

Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
