Argos aims to circulate writing about topical matters of public and political import that is local, critical and accessible. We believe critical intellectual conversation should be heard here in Aotearoa-New Zealand, not simply published for credit in international fora for more limited and specialised audiences. Of particular interest to us is writing that grounds its concern with the public or political good of place-making in theory or philosophy.

Selina Tusitala Marsh

Poetry and doodling, opps, I mean, diagrammatic knowledge reconconstruction via mind mapping, are viable ways of knowing for Selina Tusitala Marsh. Any learning environment, no matter how dense or boring, can gain that L’Oreal mantra of being ‘worth it’, if something new is created. Selina’s second collection of poetry, Dark Sparring (Auckland University Press), is now out. It comes with a CD of poems with music by Tim Page.
