  • Volume 30 Issue 22 - Profitless prognostications
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew
      One of the minor annoyances of the United States election was how unreliable the polls turned out to be, particularly in some key swing states. Unsurprising, but still annoying for those hoping for a massive repudiation of the Trump presidency. In the large scheme of affairs the failure of the polls to predict is insignificant, but it does raise interesting questions about its implications for public life in the United States and in Australia.

  • Volume 30 Issue 22 - Catholics and the future of American politics
    • Abstract: Christian, Robert
      Donald Trump shocked the world with his upset victory in the 2016 US presidential election. And his victory instantly transformed American politics and the Republican Party. Upon taking office, the Trump administration swiftly pursued its agenda of plutocratic economic policies, populist nationalist immigration and foreign policies, and conservative social policies.

    • Abstract: Vinall, Marnie
      Since the pandemic started to show its teeth on our shores in March, there's been a trend to wave away any other matter other than COVID-19 with an examination of, 'Just one crisis at a time - we'll get to climate change after we've got the economy back on its feet.'

    • Abstract: Robertson, Tim
      I used to work in a small office where the junior employees were expected to be at their desks by 8:30 sharp every morning. On most mornings the owner-boss, who we nicknamed The Troll because he looked and treated his staff like the hungry bridge-guarder from the Norwegian fairy tale, would call the office at 8:35 to make sure everyone was in.

  • Volume 30 Issue 22 - A new Chilean constitution must remember its origins
           and people
    • Abstract: Wadi, Ramona
      Contrary to the narrative disseminated by Chile's right-wing government, the protests which started in October 2019 and attracted nationwide mobilisation were not about the hike in metro prices. Against a backdrop of growing calls to abolish the dictatorship referendum, which provided impunity for governments since the democratic transition in 1981 onwards, President Sebastian Pinera resorted to military tactics reminiscent of Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship. Mass arrests, sexual abuse, killings, and the military's maiming of demonstrators by firing rubber bullets at the eyes, causing permanent injuries including loss of vision, provided insight into how a democratically-elected government was able to incorporate dictatorial legacy with scant international condemnation.

  • Volume 30 Issue 22 - Patchwork quilt church inhibits national action
    • Abstract: Warhurst, John
      There is a good reason why the term Australian Catholic Church is frowned upon in official circles. It does not exist. Instead, it is a patchwork quilt of fiefdoms called dioceses. It lacks an energising central authority which, when it needs to, can generate and shape a national church response.

    • Abstract: Kampmark, Binoy
      In a report published just prior to the US presidential election, the International Crisis Group was pessimistic. 'The 2020 US presidential election presents risks not seen in recent history. It is conceivable that violence could erupt during voting or protracted ballot counts. Officials should take extra precautions; media and foreign leaders should avoid projecting a winner until the outcome is certain.'

  • Volume 30 Issue 22 - An American abroad in an election year
    • Abstract: Acholonu, JO
      Being an American abroad during a presidential election year often comes with explaining the electoral college; explaining that a presidential nominee could win the popular vote but lose the election due to not receiving 270 electoral votes (as was the case in 2016). Being an American abroad means justifying our two party system; explaining why voting any party aside from Democrat or Republican, at this point in time, is seen as a wasted vote.

    • Abstract: Antoniou, Izabella
      There is a sense of liminality pushing down on the shoulders of many Australians regarding their financial security. It is like waiting in a dark room, no windows, no doors, no way of telling the time or contacting the outside world. You want to simultaneously sit in the middle of the room and wait, but also scream and bang on the walls - you know neither will help.

  • Volume 30 Issue 17 - Mental health as a gift
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew
      Over recent weeks Australian public conversation has been marked by fragmentation. Instead of discussing the shared task of warding off coronavirus and reshaping society, people have narrowed their focus to the harm done to their own social groups by the virus and the priority their own interests should have in the next stage. An earlier emphasis on cooperation for a common goal has been replaced by competition to promote sectional agendas and a search for scapegoats on whom to lay blame for losses.

    • Abstract: Moore, Maddison
      The coronavirus pandemic has heightened pre-existing food insecurity on a global scale. In Australia, limits have been placed on the purchasing of essential items such as canned goods which resulted in an upsurge of consumer demand. Empty shelves sparked fear in shoppers and created a self-fulfilling prophecy where long-lasting goods were difficult to find.

  • Volume 30 Issue 17 - UAE-Israel peace deal and the court of public opinion
    • Abstract: Sleiman, Daniel
      The United Arab Emirates has been making a number of headlines lately. On July 21 it launched the Arab world's first Mars mission. In early August it announced the start of a nuclear reactor at the Barakah nuclear plant, again an 'Arab first'. And on 13 August it formally established the normalisation of relations with Israel in a new peace deal. While not an Arab first, both Egypt and Jordan having signed peace deals in 1979 and 1994 respectively, it is the first between an Arab state that has not engaged in war, or shares a border, with Israel.

      Back in March, Google announced a 75 per cent spike in domestic violence- related searches. The federal government responded with an extra $150 million to family violence services. It made me wonder how much searching was 'normal', and not newsworthy. It made me think about all the searches that looked for answers, and what the story was.

      When watching a news clip recently I was taken by a young woman's attitude to the coronavirus restrictions. When asked how they had affected her, she said simply, 'It is what it is'. The answer suggested an impressive acceptance far from the outrage, frustration and resentment that in the circumstances would not have been surprising. It seemed to suggest humility in the face of a situation that could not be changed.

    • Abstract: Glyn, Justin
      It is now fairly trite to talk about these 'exceptional' times in relation to COVID-19. Isolation, quarantine, mask-wearing, working from home have all become buzzwords. The disruption the pandemic has wrought in all of our lives has been immense. With disruption, however, has come a consciousness that many of the social structures and assumptions we have taken for granted for so long are not, in fact, graven in stone.

    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew
      In the choppy waters of public conversation, rulers have recently attracted much attention as they have bobbed along on its surface. This is not unusual, but in these months the attention has been more frenetic and perhaps harder to read. Whether it be Trump, Johnson, Andrews, Ardern, Berejiklian or Pope Francis, there have been unusual eddies about them that merit reflection.

    • Abstract: Clark, Cristy
      There's a revolution underway in Northcote over community access to the extensive, lush green grounds of the Northcote Golf Course. During Melbourne's long period of lockdown, locals starting slipping through the fence to gain access to the beautiful grounds. In response, Darebin Council decided to temporarily open the golf course up to community access, in order to give locals more outdoor space in which to safely exercise. This week, as golfing resumes, locals are campaigning to maintain their access and 'unlock' the park for the enjoyment of everyone.

    • Abstract: Hatton, Marilyn
      Phyllis Zagano's latest book 'Women: Icons of Christ' is a must read for all who desire equality for women in our world and an inclusive practice of Catholic faith. The critical issue Zagano presents in this book is that ordaining women to the deaconate is a not a new or forbidden act in Catholic history but rather a return to a practice that endured for hundreds of years.

      For such well loved and equally reviled figures, it is no surprise that popes, real and imagined, continue to fascinate film makers and provide fertile ground for their creativities. The results vary from the saucy intrigue of The Borgias to the quasi comic We have a Pope. More recently there has been a swing to more realistic portrayals, with Fernando Meirelles' The Two Popes succeeding best in bringing reality and fiction together into am enjoyable entertainment package.

      If society were a mine, refugees would be the canaries in it. Their condition reveals whether the currents of public air are pure or toxic. By that standard the present currents in Australia are noxious. They mark a change from the first generous response to the coronavirus to the meaner reconstruction of the economy.

Indeed, when I finished honours in 2002, I had planned to enter the workforce, enjoy not being utterly broke for a bit, then return to uni to begin my PhD. Seven years later, I finally realised that wasn't going to happen so I enrolled in a graduate diploma to 'dip my toes' back in the world of academia with the view of continuing on. Again, that didn't happen so eight years later, here I am again: only a couple of weeks away from submitting my final assessments for my Masters and seeing what I do next.

In the lives of those with chronic illness, however, those lines are blurred; our descent into illness may have been gradual and there might be no end in sight.

I swam as far out as I dared, clinging onto the sacred and wildness I'd discovered by the sea, until the notices were nailed onto fenceposts and police cleared the area.

      Social media, while a blessing, has also become a curse for survivors in Pakistan. The platforms are widely used by survivors to share their stories of sexual harassment, molestation or rape. It also gives users a chance to comment and provide leeway for the perpetrator.

  • Volume 30 Issue 20 - Let them pick fruit
    • Abstract: Cowburn, Vivienne
      An idea that's gaining traction, in a pandemic where international travel has stopped and many Australians are losing their jobs, is this notion that the unemployed (aka: everyone on JobSeeker payments) should go out into the regions and help the farmers pick fruit.

  • Volume 30 Issue 20 - Attacks on the arts miss their value
    • Abstract: Reid, Leya
      Recently, The Daily Telegraph published a front-page article criticising public funding for the arts during a pandemic. One of five female artists named and ridiculed as selfindulgent in the article was Claire Bridge who received a $10,000 grant for a collaborative multi-channel video work with Chelle Destefano. Their project, What I wish I'd told you brings together Deaf voices and centres Deaf perspectives, language, culture and agency. This year, distancing and isolation has created a number of barriers to connection, especially for people living with disabilities who depend on face-to-face interaction and for whom community is vital. The artists were thrilled to receive financial support for this project and to promote it this week as part of Reaffirming Deaf People's Human Rights, the theme of this year's National Week of Deaf People and International Week of the Deaf. The disheartening comments made in the newspaper reiterate the value of this type of artwork.

  • Volume 30 Issue 20 - No joke: OCD is not a punchline
    • Abstract:
      'You've got a bit OCD about all this handwashing, haven't you'' People say things like this all the time, to mock others' habits and the routines they follow a little too closely. Usually, it's not meant to be offensive. Just harmless teasing.

  • Volume 30 Issue 20 - Susan Ryan, John Fahey and the catholic story
    • Abstract: Warhurst, John
      Recent weeks have seen the deaths of former NSW Liberal Premier and federal Finance minister, John Fahey, and former Labor federal minister, Senator Susan Ryan.

      They were both exemplary public figures who not only made a major contribution to Australian public life but did so in a way that drew praise from all sides of politics. Their personal stories illustrate many aspects of the journey Australian Catholicism has taken over the past fifty years. Ryan left the church while Fahey remained at its official core.

  • Volume 30 Issue 20 - Tall fences, taller trees and film as resistance
    • Abstract: Zable, Arnold
      Tall Fences, Taller Trees, directed by Dutch-based Iranian filmmaker, Arash Kamali Sarvestani, is a companion to Chauka, Please Tell Us the Time, which Sarvestani codirected with Kurdish-Iranian writer and Manus Island detainee, Behrouz Boochani. Despite the daunting challenges the collaborators faced in making Chauka, the film was a triumph, feted in film festivals worldwide after its release in 2017. It documents the lives of men in the prime of their life, stuck in a hellish limbo - an essay on tedium, the erosion of hope, and the destruction of the spirit.

  • Volume 30 Issue 20 - The romance of the song
    • Abstract: Matthews, Brian
      'They tell me you know something about Henry Lawson'. The speaker was perhaps six feet tall, a 'Collingwood six footer' according to the vernacular of those times, handsome, tousle-haired, unsmiling but with a pleasantly ironic way to him. He was standing just outside the open doorway to my office in Flinders University's School of Language and Literature, as it was then known.

  • Volume 30 Issue 20 - Fratelli Tutti: seeking the common good
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew
      Pope Francis' latest encyclical letter Fratelli Tutti is, as we might have anticipated, a reflection on our times. Its timing was fortuitous, bridging the inarticulate hostility of the presidential debate and Joe Biden's decision to forego negative campaigning in the aftermath of Donald Trump's COVID-19 diagnosis. The burden of the encyclical is to commend fraternity and
