The online journal The Conversation continues to traverse a wide range of subject matter. Recently, we noted:
- Ryan Goss on how our Constitution came to be written and what we should do with it next;
- Benjamin T. Jones on the early days of the White Australia policy – ironically, the dark side of the Australian pre-Great War ‘social laboratory’; and
- Nick Parr with three charts on how Australia’s population is shifting to our big cities.
If your work gets into The Conversation please let us know and we may be able to kick it along a bit to our loyal followers.
