"Seed" is a student newspaper published at Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia. The magazine, established in 1990 as "NoName", is produced by the Victoria University Student Union. The current editor, appointed by the union's elected executive committee, is Andrea McGlashan.


Victoria University was formed from the merger of a number of technical and higher education campuses in the suburbs of Melbourne. "Seed" grew out of the merger of "NoName", published from 1992 at the Footscray Institute of Technology, and "Genesis", published since 1995 at the Western Institute. In 1996, the two merged to form "NoName + Genesis", before rebranding later that year as "Seed". [See [ Victoria University library catalogue] ]

Art of Shoplifting controversy

In 1995, "NoName", reprinted a controversial article from "Rabelais Student Media", its La Trobe University counterpart, entitled "The Art of Shoplifting" – one of seven student newspapers to do so. Although the "Rabelais" editors responsible for the original article were prosecuted for ignoring a ban on publication issued by the state's Chief Censor; the editors of the other seven newspapers were not targeted by the authorities. Charges against the "Rabelais" editors were later dropped. [cite web
