In 2015 we really ramped up vis No Award; a whole lot of posts, including guest posts, and even a posting schedule (!!). We’ve got plans for 2016, which we’ll announce shortly. Thanks for yelling with us in 2015, Australia.
(Speaking of yelling, if you’re getting intrusive pop-up ads on NA, especially on the mobile version, please let us know! We’re looking into it.)
And now, starting as we mean to go on, a day late we bring you our favourite posts of the year!
A Tour of Issues of Appropriation and Racism in Melbourne’s Restaurants – possibly No Award’s most popular post in 2015? 860 facie shares, good work.
(For some reason, the actual most popular post of the year was one Liz made in 2014, yelling about the end of Secrets & Lies. Judging by the search terms, a lot of Americans got bored halfway through the US version and went searching for spoilers. And who can blame them?)
Stephanie gets into fights on the internet: intersectional is more than a three-letter country on US-centricity and the priority given to US voices in social justice discourses.
Imagining Australia’s Climate Change Dystopia (a science fiction essay) – SCIENCE and SCIENCE FICTION.
Peter Combe and the climate dystopia agenda. Steph can’t believe this wasn’t more popular, it was genius. Thanks to Official Potato (and Calligrapher) Moya for her co-writing on this.
on being a bilingual child – Steph on language and disease and family
Liz and Steph yell about Miss Fisher, and also talk about racism and the books
Pro-environment media Liz was banned from consuming as a child (exciting update on this front: two weeks ago, Liz’s mum conceded that climate change is probably a real thing that’s happening!)
