Sustainable Kangaroo Harvesting: Perceptions And Consumption Of Kangaroo Meat Among University Students In New South Wales, 2014 SIT Graduate Institute/SIT Study Abroad
Sustainable Kangaroo Harvesting: Perceptions And Consumption Of Kangaroo Meat Among University Students In New South Wales, Elisabeth Grant
Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection
Kangaroos have been cherished as a source of meat for over 40,000 years by Aboriginal Australians and for many years by Europeans once they invaded the continent, but somewhere along the way kangaroos lost their status as an important resource and came to be regarded as a pest, and then a national icon which was considered taboo to hunt (Jackson et al., 2010; Mulvaney et al., 1999). It wasn't until the 1950's that a kangaroo meat industry began, and in the past few decades Australians have re-realized the great potential of kangaroo meat, and conservationists have begun ...
“Mad-Speak” And Manic Prose: Nick Cave’S Presentation Of Insanity In And The Ass Saw The Angel, 2013 Sacred Heart University
“Mad-Speak” And Manic Prose: Nick Cave’S Presentation Of Insanity In And The Ass Saw The Angel, Laura Hardt (Class Of 2014)
English Undergraduate Publications
Nick Cave’s novel And the Ass Saw the Angel attempts to exist firmly within the Southern Gothic tradition, pulling direct inspiration from authors such as William Faulkner, Cormac McCarthy, and Flannery O’Connor. However, Cave’s novel seems to lack the careful construction and purposefulness of these writers, with its graphic violence, constantly shifting tone, style, narrative voice, and employing an utterly bizarre and arcane vocabulary. This essay aims to illustrate that although this may make the work seem poorly composed and somewhat slipshod, the manic prose of Cave’s novel is actually rather purposeful, presenting the protagonist’s ...
The G20'S Role In The Reform Of The International Monetary System: Present Record, Potential, And Scenarios, 2013 Global Summitry Journal
The G20'S Role In The Reform Of The International Monetary System: Present Record, Potential, And Scenarios, Yves Tiberghien, Xu Hongcai
Global Summitry Journal
With the acceleration of globalization, global markets have experienced an historic period of rapid expansion. The expansion of these markets has unleashed prosperity gains around the globe, most recently in large emerging market economies. However, it is now clear that this economic globalization has far outpaced the development of finance and monetary systems. The 2008 global financial crisis and the ensuing years of financial volatility have brought home the deficiencies in the architecture of governance undergirding global financial markets and the inherent instability of a global monetary system that relies on one currency. In this increasingly volatile and uncertain context ...
Middle Power Leadership And The Evolution Of The G20, 2013 Global Summitry Journal
Middle Power Leadership And The Evolution Of The G20, Andrew Cooper, Jongryn Mo
Global Summitry Journal
Global power is becoming more diffuse, smarter, and more asymmetric. In developing this extended argument, we make four points. First, the G20 Seoul Summit in November 2010 showed that the G20 is becoming increasingly embedded as the hub of global economic governance. Second, a strong G20 has positive attributes for global governance. Third, a main driving force for the ascent of the G20 has been and will continue to be middle power leadership. This article, therefore, will concentrate in the following on the role of Canada, Australia and South Korea but, there is some considerable potential for this role to ...
Australia's Views On Global Summitry: The Case Of The G20, 2013 Global Summitry Journal
Australia's Views On Global Summitry: The Case Of The G20, Melissa Conley Tyler
Global Summitry Journal
When Australia announced in 2010 that it would become a member of the Asia Europe Meeting (ASEM), I sought out one’s of Australia’s leading experts on Australia-Europe relations, Professor Philomena Murray. I asked her why she thought Australia was pushing to become a member of ASEM after previous unsuccessful attempts. Her view: Australia is “a joiner.”
This appears to be a fair statement of Australia’s current approach to global summitry, a pattern begun during former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s tenure and still very much pursued under the leadership of the current Prime Minister Julia Gillard. To ...

Deterring The ‘Boat People’: Explaining The Australian Government's People Swap Response To Asylum Seekers, Jaffa Mckenzie, Reza Hasmath
This article examines why Australia has taken a tough stance on ‘boat people’, through an analysis of the Malaysian People Swap response. The findings support the view that Australia’s asylum seeker policy agenda is driven by populism, wedge politics and a culture of control. The article further argues that these political pressures, in sum, hold numerous negative implications for the tone of Australia’s political debate, the quality of policy formulation, as well as for asylum seekers and refugees themselves.
Italian Civilian Internment On South Australian Revisited, 2013 SelectedWorks
Italian Civilian Internment On South Australian Revisited
During the Second World War, almost five thousand Italian civilians were interned in Australia as enemy aliens. Almost every Italian family was affected from the removal of their breadwinner. The largest of the Australian internment camps was Loveday in South Australia. At it's peak it held about 6,000 civilian enemy alien inmates. This article offers some insight into the experiences of some of the Italians who were impacted by civilian internment.
The Pleiades, 2013 Dublin Institute of Technology
The Pleiades, Frank Prendergast
The prominence of the Pleiades star cluster in the night sky, as well as its recurring seasonal reappearance, has brought it to the attention of many cultures in more recent times, as well as in the prehistoric past. This summary description includes references to its mythical and traditional importance, and an example of how it was depicted on a bark painting by an unknown indigenous Australian artist.
Mining Animal Death For All Its Worth, 2013 University of Wollongong
Mining Animal Death For All Its Worth, Melissa J. Boyde
This chapter considers the death of animals in the novels and film adaptations of Wake in Fright (1961/1971) and Red Dog (2001/2011). Both texts have several things in common: they are set in Australian mining towns – in Wake in Fright it is Bundanyabba, a fictional town with echoes of Broken Hill, New South Wales, and in Red Dog it is Dampier in the Pilbara region of Western Australia – and in both the death of animals is central to the narrative: in Wake in Fright it is the massacre of kangaroos and in Red Dog it is the death ...
A Market For Justice: A First Empirical Look At Third Party Litigation Funding, 2013 University of Pennsylvania Law School
A Market For Justice: A First Empirical Look At Third Party Litigation Funding, David S. Abrams, Daniel L. Chen
The alienability of legal claims holds the promise of increasing access to justice and fostering development of the law. While much theoretical work points to this possibility, no empirical work has investigated the claims, largely due to the rarity of trading in legal claims in modern systems of law. In this paper we take the first step toward empirically testing some of these theoretical claims using data from Australia. We find some evidence that third-party funding corresponds to an increase in litigation and court caseloads. Cases with third-party funders are more prominent than comparable ones. While third-party funding may have ...
Decolonising Spaces And The Exemplary Life Of Tess Brill's Activism, 2011 SelectedWorks
Decolonising Spaces And The Exemplary Life Of Tess Brill's Activism, Julie-Ann Paredes
Statistics continue to show that quantifiable disadvantages still exist today between Indigenous and non-Indigenous populations in Australia, collectively referred to in common vernacular as ‘the gap’. This situation may be understood as an ongoing ‘echo factor’ of colonisation, but when ‘the gap’ is considered as metaphor, it may represent the ‘space of disconnect’ between Indigenous and non-Indigenous knowledges and ‘alternative ways of knowing the world.’ By exploring this space through a lens of reflexivity, this thesis will consider not only the links between Australia’s colonial past and status as a settler nation but the potential of reflexivity as a ...
Asian Migrant Writers In Australia And The Negotiation Of The Third Space, 2011 Edith Cowan University
Asian Migrant Writers In Australia And The Negotiation Of The Third Space, Jacqueline M. Highland
Theses: Doctorates and Masters
This thesis is a comparative study of three selected texts by Australian novelists
Yasmine Gooneratne, A Change of Skies,(1991) Adib Khan, Seasonal
Adjustments (1994) and Brian Castro, Birds of Passage ((1983). All three writers
explore the experiences and perceptions of their protagonists in relating to the
landscape, people and cultural traditions within the Australian context into which
they have migrated from different Asian countries. Brian Castro’s central
characters, Lo Yun Shan and Seamus O’Young, are drawn from two contexts, the
former from the 19th century China while the latter is a contemporary Australian
born Chinese. Gooneratne’s ...

'A Blood-Stained Corpse In The Butler's Pantry’: The Queensland Bush Book Club, 2011 Gettysburg College
'A Blood-Stained Corpse In The Butler's Pantry’: The Queensland Bush Book Club, Robin Wagner
Musselman Library Staff Publications
Lending libraries were not the norm in 1934 when the Carnegie Corporation of New York sent American librarian, Ralph Munn, to conduct a study of the condition of Australian libraries. In his initial survey Munn learned of the Queensland Bush Book Club, an organization of well-to-do, philanthropic women from Brisbane who had established a book lending service for settlers in the Outback. They hoped to ease the drudgery and lighten the burden faced by isolated women and their families in the rural areas. The antidote was a regular parcel of “proper” reading matter which included books, newspapers and magazines. They ...
Incarcerating Indigenous People Of The Wongatha Lands In The Eastern Goldfields Of Western Australia : Indigenous Leaders’ Perspectives, Stephen J. Bedells
Theses: Doctorates and Masters
The Wongi people are Indigenous to the Goldfields region and account for just 10 per cent of the population; yet they make up 90 per cent of the prisoners. With Indigenous incarceration rates above 8,000 per 100,000 adult male population in Western Australia, imprisonment is clearly a common experience for Indigenous men and women that profoundly affect the lives of their families. Gaols are meant to be used as a sentence of last resort when the severity of the offence requires severe punishment and prevention of further offences requires close confinement. For this research, Wongi leaders were interviewed ...

'Not Yet Ready': Australian University Libraries And Carnegie Corporation Philanthropy, 1935-1945, 2010 Gettysburg College
'Not Yet Ready': Australian University Libraries And Carnegie Corporation Philanthropy, 1935-1945, Michael J. Birkner '72
History Faculty Publications
In recent years the Carnegie Corporation's influence on Australian library development has been fruitfully examined from many angles, among them its role in promoting free-library movements in the various states. One piece of the story, however, remains mostly in the shadows: the Corporation's initiatives pointing towards modernizing and professionalizing Australian university libraries. Although the Corporation's philanthropic enterprise at the university level yielded mixed results at best, it was not inconsequential. It provided a blueprint for future university-library development in Australia. In one instance, at the University of Melbourne, it inspired a vice-chancellor to articulate a vision of ...
