    Arena is well known in Melbourne and Australia more broadly as a publication which has made an impact on political and cultural interpretation and practice over a period of more than thirty years. However, Arena is more than this or that publication. It is composed of a core of people with a large number of friends and supporters who have established various venues and discussion projects in Melbourne and its environs as well as engaging in a variety of practical endeavours over this period.

    The core value of co-operation stands at the centre of what motivates and structures the practices and discussions of people at Arena. It is a value which has had superficial meanings for many groups, but be that as it may, it needs to be re-thought in fundamental ways given the collapse of older notions of socialist co-operation. This project enlivens all the discussions held in Arena settings and shapes the activities and publications of Arena editors.

    Over the last three decades people associated with Arena have established research and conference facilities in both the country and the city, and in the latter there is a thriving centre which combines publication, public discussion and a commercial printery.

    Arena has never accepted government support of any kind and has been fortunate to have been valued sufficiently by its friends for them to help its development financially in a variety of ways.

    In the lead essay UNEARTHED- Last Days of The Anthropocene, James Bradley writes compellingly on the urgent crisis of climate change. 'There is a conversation I do not know how to have, a conversation about what happens if we are headed for disaster. It is not a theoretical question for me. I have two daughters.'

    Miles Franklin shortlisted author Michael Mohammed Ahmad writes on how his thinking about literature, politics and race was shaped in Reading the Autobiography of Malcolm X as An Arab Australian. In an accidental companion piece, This Vast Conspiracy of Memory, Khalid Warsame reflects on life and writing while making a complete reading of the works of James Baldwin.

    Among this edition's other essay authors are Glyn Davis, Karen Wyld, Fatima Measham, Matthew Ricketson and David Carlin.

    There's memoir from Maxine Beneba Clarke, Maria Takolander, Corrie Chen, Meg Mundell, and Shannon Burns, and short fiction from the winners of the 2019 Peter Carey Short Story Award Alex Cothren and Paige Clark, plus new stories from Jemma Louise Payne and Lal Perera.

    The edition's poets include Jill Jones, John Kinsella, Gavin Yuan Gao, Ella Jeffrey, Lucas Smith and Phillip Neilsen.

    Issue #027: Family Matters

    Tales of brothers feuding, often ending with one committing fratricide, are unsettlingly common in mythology. Set murdered Osiris, Romulus killed Remus, and Oedipus’s sons Eteocles and Polynices killed each other. More recently, and less imaginatively, Adolf and Rudolf Dassler (of Adidas and Puma fame respectively) and Sterling and Stephen Clark (heirs to the Singer sewing machine fortune) turned their backs on one another, over money.
