  • Volume 30 Issue 2 - Conflict in middle East continues to heat up
    • Abstract: Glyn, Justin; Neal, Leon
      The multi-front war in the Middle East continues to heat up. After the American assassination of Iran's Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani and the deputy leader of the Iraqi military's Popular Mobilisation Committee at the start of the year, and the subsequent refusal of the US to heed the Iraqi Parliament's request to end its occupation, the focus has recently moved back to the Syrian front.

  • Volume 30 Issue 2 - Time for nuanced Asian representation
    • Abstract: Cage, Carolyn
      Growing up I cringed at Asian representation in film and television. More often than not we were cast as nerds, martial artists or second to the plot. We had little depth to our characters, which continuously perpetuated racial stereotypes - stereotypes that still exist today.

      Growing up in the northern city of Lebanon's Tripoli, the sight of Palestinian camps was part of the landscape. Just over the hill in the village of Jabel Mohsen, these camps (we called them mukhayems) were sprawled against the backdrop of a local mosque, green fields and unpaved roads.

  • Volume 30 Issue 2 - How climate change is remaking finance
    • Abstract: James, David; Kolbe, Mark
      A shift is afoot in the west's financial markets that represents the most important economic change since the emergence of the new financial instruments in the 1990s that ultimately led to the global financial crisis. It is the embrace of climate change by many of the world's biggest financial players. It is likely to result in a new way of thinking about money, which will change the substructure of developed economies.

  • Volume 30 Issue 2 - Honours reflect our shifting values
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew
      Like many people I am ambivalent about honours. I do not believe in them - our lives are best received and given simply as gift without need for institutional reward - but I happily rejoice with friends who receive honours. Accordingly, on Australia Day, with nothing better to do and bravely running the risk of eye strain, I trawled through the list in search of friends and acquaintances and their citations. Reading

  • Volume 30 Issue 2 - A sign of hope for the Rohingya people
    • Abstract: Alexander, Bree; Joyce, Allison
      On 23 January, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) handed down an unprecedented unanimous decision on provisional measures in the case of The Gambia v Myanmar. It gave orders that Myanmar must protect its Rohingya population from acts that amount to genocide and preserve all possible evidence of genocidal acts. The judgement also instructed that Myanmar must report to the court on compliance with these provisional measures within four months and every six months after that.

  • Volume 30 Issue 2 - What Auschwitz means for the modern state
    • Abstract: Kampmark, Binoy; Gallup, Sean
      The death camps of the Second World War remain inimitable on some impossibly cruel level. They were designed to liquidate and vanish an entire race of people, part of a broader racial war waged by the Third Reich. Others were also designated for a stateenforced disappearance: the Romani, political dissidents, homosexuals. But the language of Auschwitz-Birkenau, its desensitised approach to suffering, its rendering of suffering as inconsequential and bureaucratic, remains its most enduring and callous legacy.

    • Abstract: Cowburn, Vivienne
      Statistics and cultural trends indicate that the nuclear family model is losing its veneer. Fewer people are getting married. Couples without children are on the increase. Single women have found ways to have children without husbands. LGBTQIA+ couples are redefining not only how to start families but also broadening what a family looks like. And mothers are revealing that parenthood isn't all it's cracked up to be.

  • Volume 30 Issue 2 - The bastard subsidiarity of bushfire responses
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew; Hopkins, Chris
      After disasters the media generally focus on the courage of the people affected by them and the compassion of the public response to them. That focus often changes to complaints about how slow, inadequate and flawed are the responses to it. The change of attention is natural as the energy needed to meet the immediate crisis wanes, and the scale of what has been lost and must be rebuilt becomes clear.

    • Abstract: Liddle, Celeste; Kroenert, Tim
      On Sunday morning, as I was on the tram headed into the Melbourne Invasion Day rally, I sarcastically tweeted that I was 'getting in early' (about one hour before the rally actually started) to announce that the Melbourne rally had approximately 200,000 attendees. I added that I was doing so to beat the media's 'racist under-reporting' of the numbers. I then sat back and watched the escalating retweets in the hope that the mainstream media might see the dig and be challenged to do better.

    • Abstract: Clarke, Jeremy
      Each year, as the Chinese winter threatens to fade, hundreds of millions of people descend on train stations, airports and bus depots. Travellers sweep towards departure gates and platforms for the migration to their familial homes for Lunar New Year. It is not unknown for people to travel up to three days each way, especially rural workers toiling in factories in the south.

  • Volume 30 Issue 2 - Pondering god from the dunny
    • Abstract: Stevenson, Sue
      On the main street where I live are three public toilets. They're set back a couple of metres from the footpath, a large square concrete basin providing the only buffer between the toilets' occupants and the locals going about their business. I was busting this day, so I used them. As I sat I noticed some graffiti on the otherwise clean door of the stall: 'What you are seeking after is seeking after you. - Rumi.'

      On 20 September 2019, an estimated 300,000 students attended the many 'School Strike 4 Climate' protests across Australia. According to the ABC, the protestors called for the federal government to commit to powering Australia entirely by renewable energy sources by 2030, stop providing federal funding for coal and oil projects, and ensure 'a just transition and job creation for all fossil fuel industry workers and communities'.

  • Volume 30 Issue 2 - Australian bishops have a transparency problem
    • Abstract: Warhurst, John
      Australia's bishops have yet to demonstrate the new openness to the Catholic community necessary for a successful Plenary Council 2020. Their inclination to secrecy remains an impediment. They just don't get transparency as a virtue and they have twice demonstrated their adherence to old ways of doing things in recent months. Whether they realise it or not secrecy runs deep in episcopal culture.

      The Royal Commission into Family Violence conducted by the Victorian Government in 2015, told many of us what we fundamentally already knew - that family violence is a widespread issue for many women across this state, and that our services, systems, institutions and communities are not doing enough to effectively support victim survivors.

    • Abstract: Galloway, Kate
      Last week the High Court of Australia handed down its decision in 'Love and Thoms v The Commonwealth'. As reported here in December, the plaintiffs, Daniel Love and Brendan Thoms, are both non-citizen Aboriginal men who have lived in Australia since they were young. The government tried to deport them because they each have a criminal record. The men appealed against their deportation, arguing that the government did not have the power to deport them under the constitution.

  • Volume 30 Issue 3 - A sustainable response to disaster
    • Abstract: Spencer, Eliza
      It has been a summer of biblical proportions. Fires, floods, smoke, and sickness have filled screens and smartphones with images of loss and destruction. In the midst of bushfire relief events and community raffles, concerns about how those in need can be best supported continue as emotions run high. While the nation grieves the loss of life and land, we need to begin the conversation of how we can respond mindfully to disaster and find sustainable solutions for disasters to come. Professor

Developed by the amazing people with disabilities, family members and supporters, moulded by the Productivity Commission, and finally embraced by the Australian community and parliament, the NDIS is a major social reform that offers people with disabilities the chance to move forward, claim their rightful place in society and live out their potential.

    • Abstract: Chan, Jocelin
      Right before I turned six, my parents packed us out of our home in high-density east Kowloon and moved into my aunt and grandfather's seaside house. Just three metro stops from our home, cases of SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) were trebling at the Amoy Gardens housing estate. School was suspended after weeks of having our temperatures taken and logged before class. Face masks were a ubiquity; we couldn't even pop out for groceries without wearing one.

      I've often wondered what it means to belong to a religion. I'm a Muslim and Islam is defined as either meaning 'peace' or 'submission'. Although it is both of these things, for me it represents renewal and the ability to make a brand new start at each point in the day. We pray five daily prayers, a tenet of my faith, and in each prayer there is a new beginning where old and new intentions meet, passing each other by just enough to say hello.

    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew
      In the years before then Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's Apology to the Stolen Generations in February 2008, politicians debated the value of the gesture. Some contrasted symbolic reconciliation with real reconciliation. Those of us with a theological bent were reminded of debates between Catholics and Protestants about sacraments. Whether in the Eucharist, for example, Christ was made really or merely symbolically present. In both cases opposing the real to the symbolic devalued the real power of the symbol to create a new reality.

The obdurate refusal to consider changing the date inevitably makes the public holiday a symbol of exclusion as well as of national unity.

With Trump's history of abuse and oppression it is the sweetest irony that all that was necessary for impeachment was an abuse related to the investigation of a rich, white political rival's son.

He steps back and it shudders upright; she steps forward into the space he's made where light breaks through shattered foliage. He absconds, red-faced, embarrassed at her words; she moves half into shade, possessing herself against his intrusion. The thrill of light breaks over her arm. She sees streaks of sweat, holding teetering summer in her palm...

This can be done to religions, to political systems, or to nations. Contemporary public culture, with an antagonistic political style and the vicious use of social media, favours the making of polar opposites. It is evident in current discussion of China.

  • Volume 29 Issue 24 - Shaking faith: The Taylor and Westpac scandals
    • Abstract: Zabar, Joe
      The current controversies engulfing Westpac and the Federal Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction have a number of things in common: judgement, or the lack thereof; a perceived difficulty in recognising right from wrong; and inflicting adverse effects on their respective institutions.

  • Volume 29 Issue 24 - A Tuesday tsunami of whiteness
    • Abstract: Liddle, Celeste
      Whiteness - some days it's like a light mist constantly hanging around yet going mainly unnoticed as it stealthily seeps into one's pores. Other days, it hits you like a cascade, or a tsunami of whiteness. Tuesday, observing the news, felt more like one of the latter.

  • Volume 29 Issue 24 - The killing of Daphne Caruana Galizia
    • Abstract: Kampmark, Binoy
      Being a journalist can be a lethal business. The measure of a scribbler's success in that regard can often be gauged by the threats and dangers that pursuit entails. The deeper the digging, the greater the danger. In Malta, shudders are being felt through the media and political establishment. Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has announced his intention to resign. Other officials are doing the same. Malta's

  • Volume 29 Issue 24 - Wrestling Morrison's brand of Christianity
    • Abstract: Hassan, Toni
      Australia is massively unprepared for monster fires and the health impacts from extreme weather due to climate change. It's the stuff of nightmares and yet the bogey I find hard to shake involves the surreal political inertia of Australia's federal government led by a Pentecostal prime minister. An

  • Volume 29 Issue 24 - Clive James' poetry of memento mori
    • Abstract: Harvey, Philip
      Obituarists sharpened their quills in 2014 when word had it the death of Clive James was imminent. Since then we have witnessed a late flowering of poetry, reviews and articles tinged with mortality that revealed to the last his Twainian flair for journalistic self-promotion, albeit in the internet age. Now the quills are out in earnest. Les

  • Volume 29 Issue 23 - Tips for media covering the Disability RC
    • Abstract: Britt, Jane
      I am writing to you as part of the 20 per cent of Australians with disability who need your help to expose a terrible epidemic and stop it in its tracks. This epidemic has occurred out of sight and out of general public knowledge, and has impacted vulnerable Australians at all ages and in all settings.

  • Volume 29 Issue 23 - Secret trials in the Australian 'police state'
    • Abstract: Kampmark, Binoy
      It sounds like a police state effort. An author makes an attempt to assist a pseudonymously named prisoner publish a memoir. The effort is scotched by the authorities. The police spring into action raiding the cell of that prisoner, and that of his brother. All take place without the knowledge of the Australia media or public.
