Hi all and Happy New Year for 2015!

We are pleased to announce that the new issue of Australian Humanities Review is now online: http://www.australianhumanitiesreview.org/. This issue kicks off with Helen Keane's article on the damaged glamour of cigarette-smoking, and features a special section convened by Nicole Matthews and Cath Simpson on narrative imaginings of climate change and the lives of animals on film, as well as reviews of books on Lacanian psychoanalytic practice and the multiple devastating effects of bushfires. The full table of contents is listed below.

As always, we welcome individual submissions or proposals for themed sections in any discipline of the humanities, but with an especial focus on contemporary literary and cultural theory, sexuality studies and queer theory, indigenous history and culture, and environmental humanities and eco-criticism. For 2015 we are especially interested in receiving submissions that involve practical applications or critical responses to speculative realism and new materialism, and articles addressing the transformation of intellectual labour and the precariat as 'the new dangerous class'.

For further information on submissions, see http://www.australianhumanitiesreview.org/about.html#submission
AHR is committed to Open Access publishing and is proud to be associated with Open Humanities Press: http://openhumanitiespress.org/

Warm thanks to our contributors, editorial board, and anonymous reviewers who make the publication of AHR possible.

With best wishes
