No 21 (2017): On the Borders of Belonging

This post-congress Coolabah issue entitled ‚ÄúOn the Borders of Belonging‚ÄĚ offers seven papers developed from presentations at the Go Between In Between congress, held at the University of Barcelona 18-22 January 2016. They offer different perspectives on identity formation but all deal with the potentialities and pitfalls, the enrichment and impoverishment, the empowerment and disempowerment that may flow from identitarian in-between positions, an area of inter and cross-culturality Homi Bhabha famously coined ‚Äúthe Third Space‚ÄĚ in ‚ÄúThe Manifesto‚ÄĚ (Wasafiri 29, Spring 1999: 38‚Äď40). Located between the known and the unknown, the homely and the unhomely, the national and the foreign, the Self and the Other, this culturally fluid, mixed, hybrid discursive space is the zone where more and more human beings, perhaps willy-nilly, find themselves in these times of globalisation.

No 20 (2016): Postcolonial Crime Fiction

This issue contains some of the research carried out by the members of the POCRIF project, ‚ÄúPostcolonial Crime Fiction: a global window into social realities‚ÄĚ, under the auspices of the Centre of Australian Studies at the University of Barcelona.

No 19 (2016): Special monographic issue: Australia's Fundamental Challenges: Multiculturalism and Environment

In this short monographic issue, the Australian academic and law specialist Justin Dabner deals with the complications that arise in a nation which takes the model of British Common law for its judiciary, for both Indigenous people and its multicultural society. In a second article, Dabner moves into a totally different terrain, climate change, which is a subject of concern for every nation. Dabner points out that climate change, responsible environmental politics and action are, perhaps, Australia‚Äôs ‚Äúgreatest moral challenge‚ÄĚ alongside the one mentioned before.
