This time, I want to highlight a thesis on Australian haiku by Rob Scott entitled The History of Australian Haiku and the Emergence of a Local Accent.
It was accepted in 2014 in partial completion of the requirements for a Master’s of Research degree by Victoria University of Melbourne, and is an example of the increasing interest haiku is generating in the academic community.
This title is one of only six academic theses currently available in our library. The hope is that readers of this blog will inform the THF Digital Librarian of the existence of any other academic theses about the subject of haiku, haibun, etc., of which they may be aware, so he can acquire them for these “shelves” as well.
You may contact me through the Contact box found in the footer of every THF website page.
Thank you, and enjoy the read.
