  • Issue 45/46 - Worse I may be yet: Projecting politics
    • Abstract: Clemens, Justin
      A few years ago I was speaking with the philosopher Oliver Feltham about the question of truth in politics. 'You always know when truth is involved in a political organization', Oliver remarked to me, 'because that organization will be in constant danger of violent splitting over a principle or idea. Take the history of the Left, or of the psychoanalytic movement. All they do is split, often in the most vituperative and vicious fashion. In politics, this isn't invariably a sign of failure but a sign of life. In contrast, big corporations never split: they grow or merge or fail. When the only concerns are profit or power, organizations are fundamentally unified, but when an idea is also at stake, then we must expect and affirm the necessity of division and divisiveness'.

  • Issue 45/46 - New subjectivity: Looking back to the postmodern moment
    • Abstract: Caddick, Alison
      When the old 'Arena' came to an end with issue no. 99/100, and 'Arena Magazine' and 'Arena Journal' came into being in the early 1990s, the Berlin Wall had recently fallen, both Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan had just departed politics, and everywhere there was a celebration of a 'new world order'. It was a highly significant historical moment, but one too in broad cultural terms. By this time, some twenty-seven or so years after the first issue of Arena, the core themes and issues of concern to Arena's editors had come to strongly shape their thinking and editorial choices. But the new division of the publications crystallized their concerns and was a recognition in practice of a rapidly changing situation both for life and for thinking. This moment offers a vantage point from which to look back, and forwards, at the emergence and development of Arena's approach to the question of the subject, a key concern at that historical juncture.

  • Issue 45/46 - The Janus faces of indigenous politics
    • Abstract: Tout, Dan
      At the 2013 conference of the Australian Historical Association, Tim Rowse brandished a recent copy of Arena Journal in its book form as 'Stolen Lands, Broken Cultures: The Settler-colonial Present', and railed against what he characterized as a 'festschrift' to Patrick Wolfe's self-fulfilling project of the homogenization of Indigenous histories and experiences. He accused Arena of projecting the overarching singular narrative provided by Wolfe's 'elimination paradigm'. The session was tense. Rowse was himself subsequently excoriated by Marcia Langton, a member of the same panel, for using the terms 'half-caste' and 'quadroon' without raising his bunny ears each time these terms were used. Rowse later elaborated his critique of settler colonial studies by quoting Wolfe directly.

  • Issue 45/46 - Gender and the challenges of feminism
    • Abstract: Zajdow, Grazyna
      Feminist theory and analysis, with some notable exceptions, has always had the difficult task of cramming itself into the hegemonic theories of the day. This is as true of the writing in Arena as any - where else. But reviewing the writing on women, feminism and gender over fifty years, it can also be seen that feminism has chiselled out its own place (or places, depending on whether you believe there is a single narrative called feminism, or multiple narratives called feminisms) within its pages.

  • Issue 45/46 - Social movements: Shadow structures of a new social order
    • Abstract: Stephens, Julie
      Like Arena, the sociology of social movements is fifty years old. As in social movement theory, the nature, structure, contexts, theoretical conflicts and consequences of social movement activity have been debated continuously in and by Arena. It would be difficult to do justice to the scope and intensity of Arena's intellectual engagement with social movements and the questions provoked by both new and old forms of collective action. Any investigation, by definition, would be partial and highly selective. One could choose the nuclear-disarmament movement, the feminist movement, Indigenous activism, the politics of the green movement or any example of the various nationalist struggles with social movement aims - such as those in East Timor, West Papua and New Caledonia - that Arena has covered or uncovered, often having been at the forefront of debate over the last decades. This essay moves in a slightly different direction. In order to examine key aspects of Arena's impact on our understanding of social movements, my comments will span contributions from the May 1968 events in Paris to the Occupy movement from 2011 on. Given the themes of beginnings and endings running through the publication over the last half a century ('the end of students', 'the end of social movements', 'goodbye to the sixties'), this seems like an apt way forward. My aims are threefold: first, to trace some interpretive shifts in Arena in relation to the emergence of 'the student' as a new revolutionary subject; second, to try to capture something very distinctive about Arena's publications - first 'Arena', the 'Arena Journal and Arena Magazine' - namely their blend of a transnational and an idiosyncratically Australian focus; and, third, to tentatively suggest that, like social movements themselves, Arena produces activist subjects through the processes of writing, interpretation, reading and related forms of cultural radicalism.

  • Issue 45/46 - Humanities professionals and 'the social'
    • Abstract: Furlong, Mark
      What's In and What's Out

      The ambition of this essay is broad: to review the contributions of Arena on humanities professionals over the last fifty years. This ambit has been interpreted to include material relevant to those with a background or interest in public policy, social research, education, community services and health. To proceed in this way is uncertain. That is, the brief is unstable, as relevant naming practices and territory definitions are evanescent - they exist at one moment only to fade, are then reformulated and later disassembled. Given these kinds of reformulations, and the shifting programmatic and professional delineations that they entail, it has been necessary to be deliberately selective in the material chosen for review.

  • Issue 45/46 - Reviewing the Middle East
    • Abstract: Curthoys, Ned
      I was profoundly honoured when Arena asked me to review its contributions on the Middle East. No other independent publisher has been so committed to the task of both (re-)describing our geopolitical situation and offering prescriptions for redress that are neither shrill nor doctrinaire. Admirably, Arena has resisted the professionalized peer-reviewed journal's drift towards specialization and coterie discussion; it has taken no notice of the niche journal's fetish for theoretical shadow-boxing, the narcissism of small differences that has increasingly depoliticized academic discussion. Instead, in Arena's pages, sober analysis of current affairs shares space with philosophical meditation, expansive cultural criticism and utopian speculation. For Arena the only remit that matters is that of urgent and robust critique. Still, I have to confess to approaching the task of reviewing Arena's commentary on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with a degree of dread. Arena's record of unflinching analysis of Israel's colonial dispossession of the Palestinians, a project that continues unabated despite sporadic and often disingenuous protests from the international community, and its incisive discussion of the failings of the Arab state system, promised to be little more than an accurate but over familiar record of human misery, failed aspirations and the various ruses by which the US-Israeli alliance has sought to subjugate and remake the Middle East according to its own interests. However, what I discovered in Arena's coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since the Oslo peace process of the early 1990s - my focus in this short essay - is a testament to the enlarged sympathies and reconstructive imagination of dissident intellectuals who have found a ready home in Arena's pages. In this short review I will focus on just a few contributors who have articulated transformative possibilities.

  • Issue 45/46 - Engaging with Melanesia
    • Abstract: Maclellan, Nic
      In 'Arena's' early years, one of the central themes running through the publication was analysis of Australia's engagement with the Pacific Islands. A series of articles expressed solidarity with movements for self-determination and independence in neighbouring Melanesian nations.

    • Abstract: Roberts, Alan
      A couple of years ago a book was published with the challenging title, 'Don't Even Think About It: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Ignore Climate Change'. It tried to explain the mass inattention described in its subtitle. There is room to write another, perhaps even more striking, book called 'Don't Even Think About It: Why Our Brains Are Wired To Ignore What a Nuclear War Could Do To Us'.

  • Issue 45/46 - Changing forms of economy and class
    • Abstract: James, Paul
      Dealing adequately with themes as fundamental as 'economy' and 'class' takes incredibly systematic theoretical work. This complexity is compounded when adding in issues of changing historical context, contemporary social consequence and intersecting ontological formations - issues that writers associated with Arena have over the last fifty years sought to think through with considerable intensity. With these demands, adequately theorizing economy and class becomes a massive task. It needs to draw upon different disciplines, from anthropology and cultural theory to political economy, economic history and contemporary financial analysis.

  • Issue 45/46 - Popular culture: Pessimism and hope
    • Abstract: Ryan, Matthew
      Within Arena, popular culture has been considered as both a manifestation of the problem of radical 'autonomy' and as the scene through which we might glimpse the outbreak of an alternative future - a 'transitional practice' of sorts.1 Looking back over Arena's engagement with popular culture, I am struck initially by the now quaint sound of the phrase 'popular culture'. The proliferation of information technologies over the fifty years of Arena's existence has reduced the significance of one of the factors by which culture was distinguished as popular or elite: accessibility. Now the terrain of the popular extends across the cultural field, its forms of consumption and production shaping the cultural 'content' once held in place by aesthetic and social distinction. Recently the novelist Will Self noted this shift as it affects the 'literary novel': from 'the prince of art forms, the cultural capstone' in the twentieth century to marginal form in the twenty-first. He went on to describe the cultural present, dominated by digitized connectivity, as.

  • Issue 45/46 - Contesting technological modernity
    • Abstract: Barns, Ian
      In his reflections a decade ago on forty years of Arena, Guy Rundle observed:

      Beneath the surface of current events, a far more substantial change has occurred - the disappearance from the Left political imagination of the possibility of a world transformed in the image of human equality, freedom and possibility (whether it be called the socialist project, communism or whatever). That possibility, which has been the horizon within which political action has been set for so many for so long, has slipped away - at least insofar as any significant group or class of people are concerned. Such a possibility was common to both the old Left and the 1960s New Left, however differently the means and manner of it might have occurred to them, and it remains part of some people's political imagination today. But large numbers who participate in the activist Left do so without that horizon, and indeed often in determined rejection of it as an alibi for the ethical duty of political struggle.

  • Issue 45/46 - Theorizing intellectuals
    • Abstract: Connell, Raewyn
      A theory about intellectuals has always been one of Arena's main offerings, and one of the most admired. As early as 1970, Warren Osmond's chapter in the collection The Australian New Left called the Arena thesis on intellectuals 'the most lucid and "original" development of Marxist theory anywhere in Australia'. At the same time he noted that the series of articles by Geoff Sharp and others was 'much neglected'.

  • Issue 45/46 - 'Language can not encompass being': Poststructuralism and
    • Abstract: Cooper, Simon
      Writing in 2016, it's sometimes hard to believe the influence that poststructuralist and postmodernist 'theory' had on university and intellectual culture in the 1980s and 1990s. Virtually every humanities and social-science department (and even some science departments) either adopted or at the very least was forced to confront the body of work of half a dozen (mainly) French thinkers and the English-speaking colleagues who took up the implications of their work. In the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia, 'theory' was deeply polarizing - either the high point of intellectual virtuosity, the voice of a new politics or a nihilistic assault on Western culture. English and Philosophy departments fractured or split entirely, newly formed cultural-studies journals enthusiastically applied theory's insights to the quotidian world, academic publication expanded massively. Outside the academy, theory was often denounced in the mainstream media as being meaningless jargon or politically dangerous, or both at the same time, while the theorists themselves retained a cult status both inside and outside the academy.

  • Issue 45/46 - Globalization and the new world order
    • Abstract: Hinkson, John
      The idea that a new world order is emerging cannot be simply thought about in regional or local terms, although local expressions are everywhere. Historically there are many examples of what can be called new world orders. The rise of the state system of sovereignty, often dated from the seventeenth century and emerging from the European Thirty Years, War, is one example within this general category. The emergence of the British imperial/colonial order, arising out of an expansive capitalism and the Western Enlightenment is another. Still another example, at least in embryo, was the rise of socialist states as replacements for the capitalist state focused around the Soviet revolution. The fascist and related states arising out of the crises of 'civilization' that followed the First World War - states that sought to break with the binaries of socialism and capitalism - also exemplify the potential for new world orders: they were taken much more seriously by publics and also power elites than is comfortably acknowledged today.

  • Issue 45/46 - Fifty years of Arena
    • Abstract: Hinkson, John; Cooper, Simon; Caddick, Alison
      This issue of Arena Journal emerges from a day-long symposium held at the University of Melbourne in 2013 marking fifty years of publications by the Arena group. The event was composed of diverse presentations, some by the original editors of the first series of Arena, some by contributors to that first series, and others by editors and contributors from more recent times. The day was marked by unusual vitality as well as recognition of a unique contribution made by the publications, not only to Australian political and cultural history but also to the development of a theory of social transformation not found in publications elsewhere. There was a strong sense that something of this contribution needed to be reflected upon in a further publication looking back on those past fifty years.
