Publication | AAANZ 2013 conference proceedings now published

Selected papers from last year’s AAANZ conference ‘Inter-Discipline’ have been published. From the preface: ‘Inter-discipline’ was the annual conference of the Art Association of Australia and New Zealand, held at Melbourne from 7 – 9 December 2013.

The theme aimed to encourage critical perspectives that challenged the term ‘inter-disciplinary’ and brought together a broad set of practitioners, independent scholars, interdisciplinary artists, curators, museum educators, students and higher degree researchers across the fields of Architecture, Design, Art,…

But it is also a response to the foundational significance of feminist insights to the most topical issues of our times, including the ethics of the relationship between the subject and the state, environmental justice and sustainability, Indigenous rights,…
