Welcome to the Meanjin Inquirer. My name is Casey Abel and I am the founder of this online publication. Currently, I am an undergraduate at Griffith University studying a Bachelor of Education (BA ED) specialising in History and Psychology. I hope to soon attract other authors to contribute their work and perspectives to this platform.
What is the Meanjin Inquirer
I intend for The Meanjin Inquirer to become an informative and educational periodical for the general Australian public. The Inquirer is a platform for young people to practice historical or journalistic scholarship writing literature relevant to the general Australian citizen. I have named the publication Meanjin (pronounced Mee-an-jin), in honour of the Turrbal Nation, upon whose lands the city of Meanjin (Brisbane) was built. It is my intention that the Inquirer will publish articles of scholarship, journalism, and opinion pieces pertaining to aspects of Australian history, culture and society.
Our Purpose and Values
The Meanjin Inquirer was founded to provide a platform for Australian scholars, journalists, and general citizens wishing to voice their research and/or perspectives to the Australian community. As such we strive for:
– Honest and integrity driven discourses
– Historically reformative scholarship
– Reconciliation with the First Nations of Australasia
