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.

Current Issue

No. 31 (2021): Mythical and Fictional Islands (Special Issue on Island Studies)

This special issue of Coolabah features a series of papers that explore how islands are imagined and articulated outside the geographical and biological parameters of reality. It is hoped this special thematic issue of Coolabah will introduce Island Studies to a new audience of interdisciplinary scholars and in doing so will encourage new debates and/or viewpoints to engage with the field of island research.
