AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Synott reflects on the poetry published in Social Alternatives journal in the last forty years. His appointment as poetry editor of the journal from 2002 to 2012 followed in the footsteps of Laurence Burke, John Knight and Wendy Morgan. Their editorial work established that Social Alternatives was not only a publication of critical articles on politics, social movements and cultural debates but a journal that presented poetry from poets involved in those social movements. They published poetry that expressed the voices of poets engaged in the anti-nuclear weapons, anti-conscription and anti-Vietnam war campaigns, the campaigns for women's liberation, the campaigns for Aboriginal Land rights, the movement for environmental protection, and other new left analyses and proposals for change towards a communitarian and ecologically sustainable world.'  (Publication abstract)

    'We present this special edition issue of Social Alternatives to celebrate our 40th anniversary and renewed commitment to the social and political project of 'providing a radical outlet for the communication of new ideas' and 'formulating alternatives to existing policies and structures' (Summy 1977: 4). Contributions for this issue were invited from past and current members of the editorial collective, the advisory board and guest editors. Contributors were asked to give account of the way that the journal has given them the opportunity to speak back to conventional assumptions about social and political issues and to open up new ways of conceptualising solutions.'  (Editorial Introduction)
