The Junk That 8 K-Town (View-Master Haiku Series 1, 2 & 3), Brenton M. Rossow Apr 2019

The Junk That 8 K-Town (View-Master Haiku Series 1, 2 & 3), Brenton M. Rossow

Landscapes: the Journal of the International Centre for Landscape and Language

THE JUNK THAT 8 K-TOWN (View-Master Haiku Series 1, 2 & 3)

My first session taking photos of bush junk near the K-Town train station led to an addiction. I started to see things within images that aroused deeper contemplation. The miniature Eiffel Tower within one landscape seemed to expertly align with a gasping car belly that paid homage to Peter Dam’s The Dogs That 7 Sparrows.

Absent past owners became unconscious artists. Objects in their adopted environments became creatures with lives beyond previous incarnations. I saw things as representations, serendipitous alignments, but more importantly, a culture addicted to accumulating ...


The Fire At Ross's Farm.Pdf, Keith Clouten Dec 2017

The Fire At Ross's Farm.Pdf, Keith Clouten

Keith Clouten

“The Fire at Ross’s Farm” takes its story from a narrative poem of the same title by one of Australia’s best known and loved poets of the 19th century, Henry Lawson. It is the simple and perhaps typical story of two families in conflict over possession of farm land in the Australian interior. George Johnson typifies the squatter who followed closely on the heels of the explorer and pioneered the western grazing frontier by clearing and stocking large tracts of land with sheep and cattle. Sandy Ross, on the other hand, represents the struggling selector who came later ...

Toothsome Termites And Grilled Grasshoppers: A Cultural History Of Invertebrate Gastronomy, Deirdre P. Coleman Jun 2016

Toothsome Termites And Grilled Grasshoppers: A Cultural History Of Invertebrate Gastronomy, Deirdre P. Coleman

Animal Studies Journal

This article examines the recent turn to entomophagy (insect eating) as a new source of nutrition in a world confronted by increasing population, degraded soils, and food insecurity. Although many regard entomophagy with disgust, there is a case to be made that many insects are much more nutritious, as well as greener and cleaner¹, than many of the foods we regularly eat without thinking. Also, there is nothing new about insect eating or the belief in entomophagy as a sustainable and sensible practice. There is a long cultural history in countries such as Africa and Australia, for instance.


Scholarly Ecotones In The Information Landscape, Drew Hubbell, John Ryan Mar 2016

Scholarly Ecotones In The Information Landscape, Drew Hubbell, John Ryan

Landscapes: the Journal of the International Centre for Landscape and Language

For this issue of Landscapes, we invited contributors to reflect on the concept of ecotone as a method of interrogating intersections between literature, culture, art and landscapes. We wanted to encourage the ecocritical and creative arts communities (including poets, writers, photographers, painters and graphic artists) to engage with this term in the hopes that ecotone would do for the environmental humanities what Mary Louise Pratt’s contact zone did for cultural and post-colonialist studies (see, for example, Pickles and Rutherdale). Taking our cue from Donna Haraway’s provocative study of interspecies contact zones in When Species Meet, we proposed the ...


Monsters, Kent James Quaney Aug 2014

Monsters, Kent James Quaney

Dissertations

Monsters is a collection of short stories written during my time at the Center for Writers at the University of Southern Mississippi. The first five stories are set in Australia and are about two men, Ryan and Sam, who have a complicated, on-again off-again relationship while dealing with substance abuse, internalized homophobia, and the shifting definitions of commitment and romance in the gay community. The final three stories are stand-alone pieces that deal with these same issues, but also interrogate xenophobia, religious oppression, and the dangers of group-think.


A Stirring Of Cultures: The Contest For Place, Belonging And Identity In Australia, Garry Stewart Henderson Jan 2014

A Stirring Of Cultures: The Contest For Place, Belonging And Identity In Australia, Garry Stewart Henderson

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

The creative work, The Wounded Sinner, and the accompanying exegesis, form a volume of writing that considers aspects of place and belonging in a contemporary Australian context through the agencies of Aboriginality, migration and homelessness. While these issues are present and, at times, contentious in the structure of modern Australian society they have roots in past eras of empire building, racism and the movement from agrarianism to industrialisation. The characters are drawn from my own experiences and, as such, validate both the creative work and give the exegesis substance.

Homing : Poetry ; &, An Essay On The Poetic Leap In The Late Work Of R.S. Thomas, Shevaun Cooley Jan 2013

Homing : Poetry ; &, An Essay On The Poetic Leap In The Late Work Of R.S. Thomas, Shevaun Cooley

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

Homing, as a collection, speaks to the capacity and yearning to navigate our way towards something we might call home. In animal behaviour, this seems like an instinct, hard-wired to the body. It is something I envy. By comparison, the instinct, in human behaviour, feels muffled and complicated.

These poems move between two places in which I feel ‘at home’, whatever that means: the south-west of Western Australia, where I was born and raised, and the north-west of Wales, where I lived for a time, and find myself returning to, drawn not by blood, but by longing, and a deep ...
