Philament is a free online journal of postgraduate scholarship in the
fields of cultural studies and the literary arts. It is edited and
published by students from the University of Sydney but aims to develop an
intellectual community that has both an interdisciplinary and intercampus
nature. Philament is designed to be a conduit for uninhibited academic
debate, critical discussion and creative expression over a broad range of
topics within the literary arts and cultural studies.
I had some funny dreams about it particularly while flying. I get to
customs, and the officer checks my passport. Punching data into the
computer, an alarm sounds. Im wanted by the thought police in two
countries for crimes against culture. Im taken away to an airless room
and forced to watch endless videos of Treasurer Peter Costellos budget
every novelist has something in common with a spy: he watches, he
overhears, he seeks motives and analyses character, and in his attempt to
serve literature he is unscrupulous.
