REWIND: A note from the editors

Ahh, as Game of Thrones quite accurately predicted, Winter has in fact come. As the temperature dwindles and the fireplace crackles and the ugg boots are pulled on, there’s no better time to whip up a cuppa, and wax nostalgic.

In this edition, we press rewind – not quite as explicitly as Adam Sandler in Click, but, we do remember the coulda beens, shoulda beens and woulda beens. A global pandemic has forced us all to slow down, buy new tracksuit pants, and take stock of where we find ourselves in this point of time. What we wish we could change. What we’d do if we could turn back the clock. Who we’d meet and who…we wouldn’t.

In this edition of Et Cetera, Paris Newman considers where the Australian History curriculum is key to Indigenous reconciliation and recognition, while Brighton Grace reflects on the benefits of watching television with a critical eye. The culture of perfectionism at universities is explored by Angela Ngyuen, while Joseph Haynes pens a love letter to one of Australia’s greatest cultural exports, Clive James.

These pieces are diverse and intelligent and topical; emotional, sentimental and funny, too. Strap yourselves in, and let’s go back in time.

Support Et Cetera

Et Cetera is maintained by unpaid student editors and volunteers. Despite their hard work, there are ongoing costs for critical website maintenance and communications. Et Cetera is not linked to any specific university, and as such, is unable to access funding in the way most campus publications are able to.

Given our primary audience is university students, we appreciate not all of our readers are in a position to contribute financially.

This is why Et Cetera's survival relies on readers like you, who have have enjoyed, or been challenged, by our work. We appreciate every dollar that is donated.
