em PRESS (Victoria)
Award winning cross cultural work
emPRESS Publishing specialises in Australian landscapes and their historical and cultural contexts. em PRESS is particularly interested in fusing Indigenous, European settler and nature-based readings of the landscape to provide a deeper, truer viewpoint of our country’s heritage. em PRESS has published two award winning books in recent years: The People of Budj Bim (2010) on the history of the Gunditjmara people in south-west Victoria; and the Goldfields Track Walking Guide (2012), which includes cultural heritage, and was described as “a model for future guides.” The most recent publications are a nature journal organised around a six seasons calendar and a series of booklets on the ‘both ways cultural’ approach practised by the Yirralka Rangers in Yolngu country in north-east Arnhem Land. em PRESS produces 1-2 publications annually.
