CFP "Wounded Landscapes"


The remnants of the industrial revolutions and the perturbing speed of global capitalism are leaving indelible traces on Earth's territories. Wounded and mangled landscapes emerge daily before our eyes, while so-called progress has inflicted a colonisation process on nature, serving illusory economic growth. Cultural approaches and artistic initiatives can reframe the paradigm through which we observe, understand, and relate to the landscape and natural ecosystems. This edition of Coolabah seeks to explore creative responses to the diverse challenges that the natural ecosystems are suffering due to the invasive and unsustainable cycle of human production and consumption.

No. 33 (2022): Pandemic as Polemic

Coolabah issue Nr 33 (2022) boasts a small selection of papers originally presented at the Pandemic-as-Polemic online seminar on Covid-19 on 4 and 5 November 2021 at the University of Barcelona. The seminar was hosted by the Observatory: Centre of Australian and Transnational Studies OCEAT (formerly CEAT) at the Faculty of Letters and Communication. The international seminar explored how the Covid-19 pandemic has put our society under great stress and to the test on both the local, regional, national and international level, and how its impact has raised a host of questions about lifestyle, environment, socioeconomic inequality, health policies, science and especially governance and politics, as these papers testify to.
