  • Volume 22 Issue 2 - The old Greeks
    • Abstract: Kouvaros, George
      In his final unfinished book on the writing of history, Siegfried Kracauer wonders about his increasing susceptibility to 'the speechless plea of the dead'. '[T]he older one grows, the more he is bound to realize that his future is the future of the past- history.' For the children of migrants, the question of how to speak well of the dead is distinguished by complex feelings of attachment and rejection, identification and denial that are expressed in a range of everyday interactions. 'The Old Greeks' examines the part played by photographic media in this process of memorialisation. It elaborates a series of propositions about the value of photographic media that are tested through a consideration of the events that surrounded the author's first years in Australia.

  • Volume 22 Issue 2 - Perception, imagination and affect in human-robot
    • Abstract: Kerruish, Erika
      As they arrive in our homes, nursing facilities and educational institutions, urgent questions are being asked about the ethics of encouraging people to have feelings towards social robots that have roles as companions, carers and teachers. This article suggests that the quality of these debates is enhanced by examining how people perceive robots and, in particular, how robots' expressive characteristics stimulate feelings through engaging the embodied imagination. I discuss the perception and expression of the zoomorphic therapeutic robot Paro, before considering the directions an understanding of these processes can take discussions about the aesthetics and ethics of social robots.

  • Volume 22 Issue 2 - Interrogating the founding gestures of the new
    • Abstract: Bruining, Dennis
      In this article, I aim to further thinking in the broadly 'new materialist' field by insisting it attends to some ubiquitous assumptions. More specifically, I critically interrogate what Sara Ahmed has termed 'the founding gestures of the "new materialism"'. These founding rhetorical gestures revolve around a perceived neglect of the matter of materiality in 'postmodernism' and 'poststructuralism' and are meant to pave the way for new materialism's own conception of matter-in/of-the-world. I argue in this article that an engagement with the postmodern critique of language as constitutive, as well as the poststructuralist critique of pure self-presence, does not warrant these founding gestures to be so uncritically rehearsed. Moreover, I demonstrate that texts which rely on these gestures, or at least the ones I discuss in this article, are not only founded on a misrepresentation of postmodern and poststructuralist thought, but are also guilty of repeating the perceived mistakes of which they are critical, such as upholding the language/ matter dichotomy. I discuss a small selection of texts that make use of those popular rhetorical gestures to juxtapose the past that is invoked with a more nuanced reading of that past. My contention is that if 'the founding gestures of the "new materialism"' are not addressed, the complexity of the postmodern and poststructuralist positions continues to be obscured, with damaging consequences for the further development of the emerging field of new materialism, as well as our understanding of cultural theory's past.

  • Volume 22 Issue 2 - Arrival of the fittest
    • Abstract: Williams, Tess
      Prometheus, the fifth film of the Alien franchise, maintains narrative connections to the original four films but the inclusion of new aliens-the Engineers-radically shifts the feminist politic of the series. There is a move away from centralising the monster and the repressed feminine, through images of horror and bodily abjection, toward a politic of carnival, seen in representations of multiple grotesque bodies and subversion of the affect of primal scenes. Carnival is a space where the authority and stability of current social powers and orders are challenged and subverted. This article contends that in Prometheus such a process occurs in the deliberate mixing of scientific knowledge and religious cosmologies, the ambivalent relationship of horror and SF genres to science and scientific knowledge, the gendered complexities of the specific bodies of astronauts and of scientists, and disruptions of the notion of gaze and viewer positioning in the opening scenes.

  • Volume 22 Issue 2 - Rural autochthony?: The rejection of an aboriginal
           placename in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia
    • Abstract: Newton, Janice
      This article addresses the question of why the name 'Mullawallah', advanced by local Wada wurrung for a new suburb in the Ballarat area, was contested and rejected by residents. It argues that the intersection between corporate profit, government policy and meaning-based issues of belonging should be highlighted for a deeper understanding of practices around place naming. The contextual conditions regarding the democratisation of place-naming policy, overwhelming power of commercial developers to 'name Australia' with marketable high status names and a 'carpentered' pastoral environment 'emptied' of the Indigenous population, created an environment conducive for the contests over naming. The Indigenous people appeared to have been wiped from the landscape and the worldview of settler locals. Concepts of 'locals' and 'rural autochthony' prove useful for understanding the ambiguities of belonging and placename attachment in Australia. The article argues that cultural politics of naming remains a contested social practice.

  • Volume 22 Issue 2 - Suicides of the marginalised: Cultural approaches to
           suicide, minorities and relationality
    • Abstract: Cover, Rob
      Suicides among marginalised groups are one of the few occasions in which self-harm and suicide are framed as having cultural, social, environmental, historical or structural causes. Suicidology, psychology and public discourse typically understand suicide causality to be grounded in individualised psychic pain and pathology, disavowing the social, cultural, environmental and linguistic contexts. However, public discourse on suicides of 'marginalised' groups such as asylum seekers, Indigenous people and queer/LGBT youth are 'authorised' to be discussed from social perspectives, informing opportunities to re-think suicidality, identity and liveability. Building on recent critical challenges to dominant theories, this article examines some of the ways the suicides of marginalised groups are described in social terms, demonstrating how cultural approaches to relationality, aspiration, performativity and mobility can expand current thinking on suicide cause and prevention.

  • Volume 22 Issue 2 - 'I am responsible': Histories of the intersection of
           the guardianship of unaccompanied child refugees and the Australian border
    • Abstract: Silverstein, Jordana
      In Australia in 1946, the Immigration (Guardianship of Children) Act was passed. This Act was intended to support the postwar migration to Australia of British children, unaccompanied by their parents, and to provide them with a guardian in Australia-the Immigration Minister. Despite subsequent amendments, this key provision continues. Children who attempt to migrate to Australia unaccompanied by adult family members are subject to the minister's guardianship. In 1948 Arthur Calwell, the then Minister for Immigration, described himself in parliament as the 'father' of such children. This article focuses on the period from the 1970s to explore what this notion of fatherhood entails. What can it tell us about how children, families and the role of the minister in child refugee policies have been imagined? I examine how the Act functions as a form of biopolitics, to discipline and regulate intimate relations for child refugees. The article asks how the Act produces a set of historically specific interdependent relationships and highlights the ways successive governments have subordinated concerns for the 'best interests of the child' to concerns of the policing of the Australian border.

  • Volume 22 Issue 2 - Post-domicide artefacts: Mapping resistance and loss
           onto Palestinian house-keys
    • Abstract: Webster, Scott
      This article is concerned with the experiences of domicide-that is, the suffering caused by the deliberate destruction of home by human agency in pursuit of certain objectives-faced by Palestinians as a legacy (as well the present) of the ongoing conflict with Israel. Existing scholarly and activist research provides some essential data about these experiences, but intellectual contributions remain primarily focused on the act of demolition or displacement. This act alone does not constitute 'domicide'. What must follow is an attempt by the displaced to grapple with the whole affective dimension of being forcibly separated from home and the symbolic and creative responses that this begets. The significance house-keys have acquired within Palestinian inter-familial and communal customs, as well as within cultural (re)production, provides insight into this suffering. Attachment to the house-key is viewed as emblematic of feelings towards the lost home-a continuation of that connection by other means. This article explores the range of ways the key's symbolic value has been reconfigured as it permeates different arenas of cultural production and activity, and how the keys have come to embody both loss of home and resistance of the goals of Israeli domicide.

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - Practicing sustainability: Illuminating 'use' in
           wearing clothes
    • Abstract: Gill, Alison; Lopes, Abby Mellick; Kaye-Smith, Holly
      This article explores examples of creative practices of wearing and maintaining clothes, and is centred around one account of laundering that constructs the commonplace maintenance of clothing as an activity for learning. This account is placed in dialogue with sustainable design research about the transition toward sustainable ways of living such as the development of 'slow fashion'. For instance, 'slowness' leverages time to rethink the value of what we already 'do' and 'have', to generate alternative temporal patterns, material flows and imaginings that are more attuned with the pace and rhythms of living day by day. With a fashion system that endorses regular updates and short-lived looks, the logic to its renewal is that as clothes are worn they depreciate in value, as the patina of use moves them further away from newness. However, when wearing and maintaining clothes are centrally positioned as everyday practices, the life and meaning that clothes come to have as worn can be appreciated as a mass participation in positive value creation. Specifically, it is possible to see this value in terms of practicing sustain-abilities and related positive signs of a more sustainable material culture.

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - The economy of persistence: Mario the Tailor
    • Abstract: Black, Prudence
      This article is about Mario Conte the tailor and the world he has inhabited for almost fifty years. It is a specific account of postwar Australian immigration and the recollections and role of one person in the clothing and textile industry. Mario Conte arrived as a twenty year old in Australia in October 1954. He was part of the second wave of postwar immigrants who arrived between the years of 1950 to 1960 with the promise of sunshine all year round and a chance for decent wages. He arrived with the skills he had learnt as a thirteen year old from a tailoring apprenticeship with a local tailor. Mario's story is not that different from many other postwar Italian immigrants, except that he found work in his own trade and his business has survived in much the same form as when he started it in the mid 1960s. Elements of Mario's experience as a 'New Australian' can be found in the highly successful comic novel They're a Weird Mob. John O'Grady wrote the book under the pseudonym Nino Culotta, and a year after publication in 1957 it had sold over one hundred thousand copies.3 The book resonated with Australian audiences who recognised the difficult and sometimes humorous everyday experiences of Italian migrants as they made sense of different ways of being in a new culture.

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - Darning Mark's jumper: Wearing love and sorrow
    • Abstract: de Perthuis, Karen
      In the winter of 2010 I darned a jumper belonging to my partner. It was a nice jumper - an upmarket streetwear label - but had been stored in a plastic bin bag, attacked by moths and was now scattered with bullet-sized holes and fraying at the cuffs. In an attempt to make the mending seamless and return this neglected, ten- year-old garment to a state of relative newness, I used three different wools. When the darning was too tight, the ply too thick or the colour wrong, I undid my handiwork and started over again. Despite these efforts, the end result was not quite the feat of invisible mending I had imagined, and his jumper looked somewhat imperfect and scarred. Around this time, I was due to present a conference paper on fashion, clothes and memory. And because it had been his idea to write the paper, and because he was a man who considered himself resolutely outside of fashion, and because he was in hospital and could not attend, I ended the paper by describing Mark's reaction to my not entirely successful darning. Running his hand over the valleys of uneven wool, he said: 'I love that you can see where it's been darned.'

      The moment of dressing: corporeal reflexivity made manifest. Turning our embodied attention, if only a partial and splintered attention, to our meeting with the world of matter, we compose ourselves in textile forms. They, in turn, will materially form us in the world of the visual. The moment of dressing is a moment of grappling with intimacies and interfaces: of the inward subject of perception with its outward object; of the seen with the felt; of the body's surface with the surface that is clothing: of the corporeal being with the world of matter. At the dimensional evocative phrase, in altered form: 'Where am I when I dress?' (The 'we' of Arendt's question is present in the 'I' of mine, for one of the interfaces negotiated in dressing is precisely that between the first person singular and plural, that is, between the individual and the collective.)

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - 'Such stuff as dreams are made on': Encountering
           clothes, imagining selves
    • Abstract: Findlay, Rosie
      Recently in Athens, while living the last days of a dying relationship, Ida Hattemer-Higgins took to walking. On her perambulations, she came upon a large, decrepit store, its entrance clogged with unlicensed brand name clothing and touristy t-shirts. This unpromising exterior belied what she found inside: a 'grand old sartorial shop, a merchant's palace filled with ancient deadstock [and] tailored pret-a-porter' buried under years of dust. She describes seeing clothing scattered across the floor as if it had been 'hastily abandoned before an advancing army', and the 'clean and shiny' new clothes mixed in with the old, which, to her eyes, 'appeared dignified... diseased and dirty'. These never-worn old clothes became a source of fascination for the author, and she returned to the shop each day to browse among them: 'jackets, trousers, wool-and-felt hats, broadcloth shirts and ties still in their rotting white boxes ... fine cuts and colours, hung on long racks, their hues softer along the ridges of shoulders, and crests of lapels, blanched by the light and dust'.

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - Formations of feelings, constellations of things
    • Abstract: Highmore, Ben
      In this essay I want to try and accomplish two things. The first is to revisit Raymond Williams's notion of 'structures of feeling' with the intention of clarifying what Williams meant by 'feelings', and of exploring the concept's possible range and reach within the study of culture. In the midst of the enthusiastic championing of what Patricia dough and others have named 'the affective turn' in the human and post- human sciences it might be an opportune moment to return to this foundational (though often criticised) concept within cultural studies to see what it can productively offer cultural investigation and how it might inflect and accentuate the current and diverse interests in affect. The second goal is to suggest that while the analysis of 'structures of feeling' has been deployed primarily in studies of literary and filmic culture it might be usefully extended towards the study of more ubiquitous forms of material culture such as clothing, housing, food, furnishings and other material practices of daily living. Indeed it might be one way of explaining how formations of feeling are disseminated, how they suture us to the social world and how feelings are embedded in the accoutrements of domestic, habitual life. The joining together of a socially phenomenological interest in the world of things, accompanied by an attention to historically specific moods and atmospheres, is, I think, a way of mobilising the critical potential of 'structures of feelings' towards important mundane cultural phenomena.

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - Teaching cultural studies; teaching Stuart Hall
    • Abstract: Driscoll, Catherine
      I belong to a generation of cultural studies researchers for whom Stuart Hall was not the primary voice defining the field as I first encountered it. He was not even among the first wave of writers that I read or heard discussed as doing 'cultural studies'. Instead, I came to Hall's work from a distance defined by the history of cultural studies as a discipline; first by the diffusion of some of its most important interventions through other fields, so that it was not only people who said they were doing cultural studies who were taken up as key to the field, and second by the institutionalisation of a cultural studies canon in which Hall became only one voice, however influential. Nevertheless, by the time Hall died I had come not only to an enthusiastic appreciation of his work but to strongly feel my own indebtedness to it. I want to reflect here on how teaching cultural studies brought me to a close engagement with Hall's work, and how teaching keeps Hall's work and ideas alive when the exigencies of academic publishing might relegate him to citational history.

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - Australian writing and the contemporary: Are we there
    • Abstract: Lawrence, Annee
      From the mid 1980s I worked closely with immigrants and immigrant communities in south western Sydney where, over the decades, I heard stories that linked me by a thousand threads to other times and places. This opened up ways of being and seeing the world that caused me to want to read literature that reflected the murmur of languages in a Sydney train carriage, or my joking conversations with the Iraqi barista at Bankstown Station who was a Greens supporter. In short, I wanted to read books that reflected not the exotic but the everyday, that everyday, in all its contemporaneity and diversity. Not memoirs, but imaginative and daring works that bonded with present day life and cracked open my Australian understandings of multiplicitous ways of dealing with and being in the world.

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - Do fish resist?
    • Abstract: Wadiwel, Dinesh Joseph
      In 2010 the UK-based organisation, released a pioneering report which attempted to estimate the number of wild sea animals killed each year as part of commercial fishing. Data has been available from national and international organisations on commercial fishing quantities; however, most of these previous measures, such as those maintained by the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation, refer to sea animals produced for food by weight rather than number, thus veiling from public perception the actual number of sea animals which are used by humans. Based on their own research, and the report's lead author, Alison Mood, proposed a sobering statistic: that between 0.97 and 2.7 trillion wild fish are slaughtered every year through commercial fishing. In a follow up report, Mood and Phil Brooke attempted to also estimate the number of fish killed annually through fish farming (or aquaculture): their estimate in 2012 was that this was of the order of 37 to 120 billion per year. (To put these figures in perspective, the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation data indicates that in 2010, 63 billion land animals were slaughtered for human consumption, a figure that is likely to be close to 70 billion for the year just past.) These figures do not include the potentially large numbers of fish caught globally through recreational fishing practices.

           informal sector?: Experimental insights from the Indian e-waste-collective
    • Abstract: Laser, Stefan
      In 2011, a sea change occurred in India. The government, while aiming for sustainable politics, issued a new (apparently exemplary) law: the 'e-waste (Management and Handling) Rules'. This so-called e-waste law tried to grapple with something that has become a major threat since its spread began about thirty-to- fifty years ago.

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - Stuart Hall: Reflections, memories, appreciations
    • Abstract: Curthoys, Ann; Docker, John
      Stuart Hall was many things: public intellectual, academic leader, writer, editor, teacher, political activist, family man and friend. We write here of the two aspects we knew personally, writer and friend. Like so many of us engaged in the early formation of cultural and media studies, we both read and were seriously influenced by his work. John discussed Stuart Hall's work extensively in his PhD thesis on Australian literature of the 1890s in international contexts, and Stuart was one of his examiners. Ann read Stuart's work in the late 1970s, having just arrived to teach in the BA (Communication) degree at what was then the NSW Institute of Technology, ten years later to become University of Technology, Sydney (UTS).

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - A feminist love letter to Stuart Hall; or What
           feminist cultural studies needs to remember
    • Abstract: Probyn, Elspeth
      I need to preface these brief remarks with a caveat. I was to write of Hall's contribution to forging feminist cultural studies, the intellectual project I have felt affiliated with across my academic life, and certainly that which has inspired and formed me. But I don't feel entitled to write of 'feminist cultural studies' in the way that others, such as Lucy Bland, Janice Winship, Angela McRobbie and Charlotte Brunsdon can. I wasn't there when the Women Studies Group at the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies struggled with 'the dilemma' of 'whether to conquer the whole of cultural studies and only then to make a feminist critique of it, or whether to focus on the "woman question" from the beginning'. The group did conceptual work across the disciplines of history, anthropology, psychology and literary studies, and grappled with theoretical movements influenced by figures as varied as Lacan, Marx and Foucault and across sites such as popular culture, regimes of gendered work and eighteenth-century novels. At the same time, and in their words, 'the Group also felt it wanted to do concrete work rather than engaging theoretical wrangles'. Across the chapters in Women Take Issue I see dedicated feminists poring over texts, their own and others, and then heading to the streets, the factories and girls' bedrooms to understand how, where and with what effect gendered relations were being reproduced. It is a picture of scholarly intent a bit at odds with Hall's description in hindsight of how feminism roared into the project of cultural studies.

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - Inside out: A diasporic narrative
    • Abstract: Lewis, Tania
      In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Stuart Hall's writing began to take a biographical turn. For readers such as myself, then a mature undergraduate pursuing an American Studies degree in New Zealand, this was somewhat of a revelation. The surprise was not so much Hall's shift from the somewhat dry prose of structural Marxism to the rather more vital style of a postcolonially inflected post-structuralism, but the fact of Hall's Caribbean background when I, along with no doubt many other geographically distant readers, had assumed him to be ex-working class, British and white. Some seven years later, while wrestling with a PhD on the history of cultural studies at the University of Melbourne, I found myself writing an essay for Arena using the question of Hall's diasporic identity to explore 'the relations between knowledge production and cultural identity/location'.

  • Volume 22 Issue 1 - The Stuart Hall conjuncture
    • Abstract: Bennett, Tony
      I recall distinctly when and where I first heard of Stuart Hall. It was in 1973 at a residential school I had organised at the University of Bristol on Marxism and Literature with Raymond Williams and E.P Thompson as its main - indeed, only - speakers. And it was Thompson who mentioned Stuart, saying that I ought to have asked him to speak in Thompson's place. I put this down to Thompson's characteristic modesty, for both he and Williams had commanded their audience's attention throughout a memorable weekend. But I logged the name and began to look up Stuart's work.
