Invited residency and conference papers. Bodman was invited due to her editorial work on The Artist's Book Yearbook. This led to the funded trip to Australia to speak at the conference and then travel on to Southern Cross University, where she had been requested as the resident artist, to spend 2.5 weeks producing a new artist's book Against Nature (www.bookarts.uwe.ac.uk/scures.htm). This period of study generated the following research outputs: a radio interview with ABC North Coast NSW (Lismore, 07/03/2006 - 03:33 PM); journal articles: Artists' Books in Australia for Umbrella Online (USA) Volume 29, No. 1, March 2006, ISSN 0610-0699; Focus on Artists' Books 3 for The Art Book (UK/USA) August 2006 Volume 13 Issue 3, pp 64-65, ISSN 1368 6267.
As a result of her work in Australia Bodman was also invited to contribute to
Interaction 2006: A Seminar Exploring the Artist's Book, Noosa Gallery, Tewantan, Australia, 22 September 2006, for a debate: Why are artists' books not accepted by art institutions? (www.bookarts.uwe.ac.uk/noosa06.htm) She was also invited to send an exhibition set of Bookmarks IV with the work of 61 artists for the Books 06 exhibition September�October 2006.
