Arena is well known in Melbourne and Australia as a publication which has made an impact on political and cultural interpretation and practice over a period of more than thirty years. It features commentary on Australian politics and culture from a left-wing perspective and critiques and challenges the contemporary status quo.
Arena is focused on the publication of ideas that explore the history, structures and practices that have shaped our world, and that provide openings to new possibilities for cooperative life and flourishing personhood. Arena is especially interested in how people and communities draw on complex cultural histories and life-ways that may defy the logic of late capitalism, and on which basis the social might be understood anew.
