The essays in the 'Affective Community' section, introduced by Linnell in the following pages, originate from the Hybridity/Community Conference held at the University of Sydney in March 2002. We also feature three essays that explore issues of space and vision. Of these essays, Scott McQuire’s is a provocative exploration of what ‘scenes’ from a cultural history of transparency might look like. In a Benjaminian gesture of thinking allegorically about Big Brother his essay moves along unexpected vectors. Paul Dawson, in ‘New Writing’, continues some of the threads spun by Scott Brooks around fictocriticism in our previous issue and a strong lineup of reviews beckons.
