AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Meridian included 'openness to controversy and dissent and a readiness to move into new fields and topics such as Black Australian Writing, Biography and Autobiography, Asian and Pacific Writing, Pathography, [and] Narratives of Reproduction'.

The journal published a wide range of contributors including postgraduates.

The editors of the final issue trusted that [the journal] kept 'to the clarity, openness, variety and concern for the state and nature of Australian culture that marked Meridian from its inception in May 1982 ...'

A 'steadily intensifying combination of workload pressures and the changing demands of university teaching and research ... led ... to a reluctant decision to cease publication'.
