About us at MSD

Melbourne School of Discontent

The Melbourne School of Discontent is a loose collective of like-minded Aboriginal and Islander academics, activists, artists, writers, poets, and pests. As our website proclaims, we seek to examine, analyze, and critically dissect the popular and accepted narratives of Australian history.

We believe there is a better path forward for Australia and that we should seek that path, in the words of Bob Dylan, "...using ideas as our maps".

Our weapons are simply words and thoughts that might disrupt the status quo.
