Abstract

Literature and Literature and insights insights Editorial Editorial Accountability, again! Nearly 5,000 kilometres of driving in six days gives one a lot of time to think. We are nearly at the end of that as I write this, sitting in a less than salubrious motel room. The teaching year has ended and, with it, my period in a remote community centre in the Australian Outback on the edge of the Great Western Desert. The township of under 300 people is predominantly Aboriginal and the huge shire in which it is located has the lowest density population in the country. The phrase “miles from anywhere” has a ring of truth to it. Living in remote areas requires a different approach from visitors, short-term residents like me, and long-standing residents alike compared with normal urban life and, indeed, with many rural areas. There is isolation, often severe weather, a need for self-reliance, and readiness to do without many comforts. No cinema and no library? No clothing store or hairdresser or hardware outlets.
