    y separately published work icon Humanities Australia no. 11 Graham Tulloch (editor), 2020 20952394 2020 periodical issue 'This year, 2020, has been a tumultuous year for the world to which Australia has added its own particular troubles and concerns. We began the year with bushfires around the country and then encountered the Covid-19 pandemic, with its immense threats to lives and livelihoods and with the creative and performing arts and universities being amongst the sectors hardest hit by its economic consequences. Along the way there have been heightening tensions in our relations with China and renewed attention to Indigenous disadvantage, highlighted by the Black Lives Matter movement, while government funding proposals have provoked questions about the place in our education system of key disciplines in the humanities. Human solutions are needed to address the immense challenges facing humanity and in this context the value and strength of the humanities in facing human issues has never been clearer. The articles in Humanities Australia have always, by their very nature, addressed topics of relevance to this country, but it so happens that a number of articles in this edition address issues that have been particularly prominent over the course of the year, either through considering contemporary events or through the lens of other places and times. So we offer this issue of Humanities Australia as a particularly direct response to this troubled year in which it appears.' (Graham Tulloch, Editor's Introduction) 2020
