Our world is built around the people, groups and communities we surround ourselves with. They form networks of connections, beliefs and ideas that can help to shape the people we become. These networks have become vital in a time where lockdowns have pushed us apart, and reinforced the need to be a part of something whole.

This anthology examines the ways we find joy in lockdown, keep people and places alive through memory, and search for connection in an increasingly digital age. Featuring poetry, short stories and visual art, it introduces bold new voices that will command your attention and prompt you to think differently about the relationships that make everyday life worthwhile.

Larissa Behrendt is a legal academic, writer, filmmaker and Indigenous rights advocate.

She has published three novels and numerous books on Indigenous legal issues. She was awarded the 2009 NAIDOC Person of the Year award and 2011 NSW Australian of the Year.

The University of Sydney Anthology is created, curated and produced by publishing students.
