Dear colleagues

Transformations is pleased to announce the publication of Issue 13 - 'Making

The issue can be accessed at:


This issue follows from the Making Badlands Conference held in December 2005
at CQU, Bundaberg campus.

The conference was based around the concept of the "badlands" arising from
Ross Gibson's Seven Versions of an Australian Badlands (UQ Press, 2002)
which describes the central Queensland region as haunted by a violent
colonial past and fraught with troubling incidents that make it an
Australian badland. This conference addressed the concept of an Australian
badland ‹ what it means to speak of a space as a badland, its relation to
history, the imaginary, and to questions of regionality, representation,
myth, archival authority, and the formation of narrative and discursive

The articles comprising this issue explore these ideas of the badlands in
extended contexts and environments, and in various and diverse ways.
