The dominant historiography of Australian cultural studies assumes that the south-east of the country, where its major population centres are located, is crucial to the field's formation. That account also problematizes nationalism. This article offers a counter-narrative, based in dependencia theory. It argues for the centrality to cultural studies of two peripheral cities in Australia where Graeme Turner made his mark, and of his particular contribution, ‘gentle nationalism’.
