Griffith Review 35 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. At times it feels like we are participants in a never-ending disaster movie, buffeted by natural catastrophe, war, economic collapse, social implosion and private trauma. But behind the shocking headlines, official inquiries and memorial ceremonies there are many stories of renewal and hope, of survivors who rebuild their lives and communities.

Griffith Review 39 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. Kathy Marks' essay 'Channelling Mannalargenna', about the survival and sense of self among Tasmania's aboriginal population, won the 2013 Walkley Award for Indigenous Affairs. A ground-breaking and topical edition of Griffith REVIEW that will highlight rapid changes in Tasmania, past and present, by the state's best writers and thinkers. Tasmania, the smallest of Australia's states, has long been on the edge of national conversations about prosperity, equality and identity. In Tasmania: The Tipping Point? Griffith REVIEW serves up strategic slices of Tasmania's past, present and future, prepared by many of the state's best writers. Thinkers and doers from Tasmania and beyond, including members of its diaspora, examine whether the island state has reached a 'tipping point'. Geographic isolation, a distinctive natural environment and small social scale are increasingly seen as blessings, presenting remarkable opportunities. The arrival of David Walsh's block-busting Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart has inspired confidence in championing Tasmania as a cultural, economic, environmental and social test bed - despite some entrenched local resistance. Tasmania: The Tipping Point? challenges how Tasmania is seen by outsiders, and illuminates how Tasmanians see themselves, down home and in the world.

Griffith Review 57 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. The world is in the grip of profound political and social change. Leaders are rising to power who promise to respond to the voice of the people—people who are aggrieved and resentful, feeling the sting of inequality and the uncertainty of a new economic order. Perils of Populism makes sense of why we are in this moment, what it feels like, where it might lead, what we can learn from the past. It goes beyond the headlines. This edition features winners of the Griffith Review Queensland Writers Fellowships, and will explore the causes and nuances of populism—building a conscience, confronting sexual abuse, addressing climate change deniers, navigating an obstructive bureaucracy, coming face to face with religious cults and discovering the enduring kindness of strangers.

Griffith Review 33 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. There seems no end to our hunger for the stories of real people facing impossible odds or dealing with the mundanity of life. Yet not every life story finds - or deserves - an audience in addition to Facebook. Such is Life presents a dazzling selection of new memoir, personal essay and biography by some of the best Australian and international writers, with narratives that help make sense of the world and our conflicts about privacy, truth and perspective. Award-winning author Lloyd Jones reveals how childhood rugby and a reverence for the All Blacks shaped his adult sensibilities and success beyond the Wellington suburbs. Carrie Tiffany comes to terms with pain and shame; Shakira Hussein falls between identities and cultures in the wake of 9/11. Debra Adelaide learns the value of an official identity; Meera Atkinson's friendship transcends pubescent pop star fandom; and David Carlin attempts to write the history of Circus Oz. In essays, Frank Moorhouse tests the boundaries of privacy and stigma; Peter Bishop salutes teachers - real and literary - who nurture our creative imagination; A.J. Brown gets behind the writing of his new biography of Michael Kirby; and Matthew Ricketson surveys recent political memoirs. Marion Halligan, Toni Jordan and Anna Dorrington explore the legacy of mothers and children, while John Tranter, Brian Geach and Andrew Sant investigate rites of fatherhood. Raimond Gaita and Kate Holden consider what is honoured or lost when adapting memories to book or film; plus Virginia Lloyd, Rosie Scott, Sheila Fitzpatrick and much more.

Griffith Review 40 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. The empowerment of women it is one of the most remarkable revolutions of the past century. But like all good revolutions it is still not settled. In a generation women have taken control of their economic fate, risen to the most powerful political positions in the land and climbed to the top of the corporate ladder. However, there still remains vast inequality between men and women across all measures, from economics to opportunity to security. Does access to power equate to actual power? In WOMEN & POWER, Griffith REVIEW explores the changing relationship between women and power in public and private spheres, here and abroad. Are women accepted as equal partners in politics in Australia? Would the introduction of quotas mean that men with higher merit are overlooked? Should a woman act as 'one of the boys' in order to get ahead? Can a woman be too good at sport? Are women their own worst enemy? Does the cut of Julia Gillard's jacket matter? WOMEN & POWER brings provocative and insightful perspectives on these questions and many more through a fascinating mix of memoir, reportage, essays and fiction. Contributors include Anne Summers, Chris Wallace, Mary Delahunty, Jo Chandler, Mischa Merz, Tegan Bennett Daylight and many more.

Griffith Review 31 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. The complexity and urgency of twenty-first century problems demand new Ways of Seeing. For decades, the humanities and social sciences have withered in the shadow of market economics and scientific rationalism. Now more than ever, we need a human-centred approach to the big dilemmas of the day, learning from literature and philosophy and drawing on the creative imagination. Philosopher and author John Armstrong argues that the value of humanities is measured by their worth and relevance outside the academy. Award-winning historian Peter Cochrane reveals the importance of historical imagination; Tanveer Ahmed explores neuroscience and policy; Leah Kaminsky reconnects the physician with the narrative. This edition also contains essays, memoir and fiction by Ian Lowe, Robyn Williams, Robert Hillman, Amanda Lohrey and Julienne van Loon, plus much more.

Griffith Review 38 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. The Novella Project revives one of the richest and most rewarding literary forms. Novellas – longer than a short story, shorter than a novel – have come into their own, with the digital publishing revolution providing new opportunities for writers to experiment with longer stories that are intense, detailed, often grounded in the times, and perfectly designed for busy people to read in one sitting. This edition features six stories picked by a panel of judges from more than two hundred entries. Mary-Rose MacColl explores the rippling consequences of a single moment of distraction; Lyndel Caffrey poignantly recreates the bleak Melbourne winter of 1923; and Katerina Cosgrove combines a portrait of strife-torn Greece with a tale of tortured love. Ed Wright tells the tragic story of a spirited teenager torn between love and duty in wartime Japan; Christine Kearney embraces the complexities of the mythic and contemporary reality of life in East Timor; and Jim Hearn cooks up a challenging and gritty tale of a junkie in trouble. The Novella Project marks the beginning of an ongoing project, developed in collaboration with the Copyright Agency Limitedâ€TMs Cultural Fund, which we hope will help foster a new golden age for the novella with an antipodean perspective.

Griffith Review 50 from the Author: Julianne Schultz. ‘I believe the novella is the perfect form of prose fiction. It is the beautiful daughter of a rambling, bloated, ill-shaven giant (but a giant who’s a genius on his best days). And this child is the means by which many first know our greatest writers…’ Ian McEwan In 2012, Griffith Review 38: The Novella Project relaunched the novella in Australia. It gave Australian and New Zealand authors a platform in the revival of the form in the English language. Griffith Review 46: Forgotten Stories—The Novella Project II was a confronting, moving and provocative collection of five novellas with a historical dimension. Griffith Review 50: Tall Tales Short—The Novella Project III features five novellas selected from a nationwide competition, blind-judged by Cate Kennedy, Jacqueline Blanchard and Brian Johns. Contributors are Tony Davis, Nick Earls, Helen Gildfind, Catherine McKinnon and Madeleine Watts. Griffith Review 50: Tall Tales Short—The Novella Project III promises to be the best collection so far of this exciting form.
