We are excited to launch Currents, a new, collaborative, graduate research journal developed between The University of Western Australia and the Centre of Visual Art, University of Melbourne. The first rolling issue of Currents includes critical and exploratory articles by early career researchers from theatre, film, visual art, art history and theory. 

Following on from the proposition what should a peer-review journal for postgraduate students look like, we will also consider how peer-review works in relation to artistic and practice-based research, and what are the benefits and difficulties of an interdisciplinary research platform? Editors Kelly Fliedner and Jeremy Eaton will discuss the formation and publishing approach of Currents, its responsive nature and the approach to digital publication. This online launch will include an introduction by Danny Butt, readings by contributors Madeline Taylor, Elizabeth Smith and Alex Hedt as well as an opportunity for discussion and response from all in attendance. Via Zoom!

This is an opportunity to celebrate and to discuss emerging research from a broad range of fields.
