Philament is a free online journal of postgraduate scholarship in the
fields of cultural studies and the literary arts. It is edited and
published by students from the University of Sydney but aims to develop an
intellectual community that has both an interdisciplinary and intercampus
nature. Philament is designed to be a conduit for uninhibited academic
debate, critical discussion and creative expression over a broad range of
topics within the literary arts and cultural studies.

continually threatens to lose its tautness under me, dropping me into the
dark pit where there is no meaning."
