The Monthly March issue 2021
Judith Brett maps the demise of the humanities in Australian education, and how casualisation and relentless cost-cutting have destroyed the credibility of Australian universities. Richard Cooke writes about the chaotic last days of Donald Trump and the new civil war among US Republicans. Megan Davis explains why constitutional recognition is essential to a meaningful voice to parliament. Patrick Lau investigates the growing movement around climate-based litigation and other legal and financial means to fight the fossil-fuel industry and its backers (including our own federal government). And Mahmood Fazal interviews the reclusive Omar bin Laden, favoured son of Osama bin Laden.
In the arts pages are reviews of the film Nomadland, the much-hyped TV series It’s a Sin and Viet Thanh Nguyen’s Pulitzer Prize follow-up novel The Committed, and we meet acclaimed Australian composer Rose Riebl ahead of her anticipated debut album release. Plus much more.
