New Music Audiences: The Generative Impulse, David Tham 2010 Edith Cowan University

New Music Audiences: The Generative Impulse, David Tham

ECU Publications Pre. 2011

This paper looks at how the net neutrality debate relates to the music recording industry and considers how new media audiences consume music as social experience and with generative impulse. As the Internet appears to force the music recording industry to re-evaluate its function and change its approach to distributing music and making money, music artistes seem to no longer need to rely on ‘record deals’ to launch or build a music career; and music audiences no longer have to rely on Top-40 radio to be told what is popular listening. This phenomenon has serious implications for new and emerging ...

Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies Faculty Publications

From his conversations in church settings and classrooms, Daniel M. Bell, Jr. has observed that Christians by and large do not know the church’s just war tradition very well, but that they are receptive to learning about it. Most theologians would likely agree that they know a number of Christians who are hungry to see better thinking and more effective action in response to war in our time. Bell, a Lutheran seminary professor and ordained elder in the United Methodist Church, wrote this book to interpret ‘the just war tradition in terms of concrete practices that might contribute to ...


Microbial Influences On Karst Dissolution: The Geochemical Perspective, With A Chapter On Assessment Of The Spreadsheets Across The Curriculum Project, Dorien Kymberly McGee 2010 University of South Florida

Microbial Influences On Karst Dissolution: The Geochemical Perspective, With A Chapter On Assessment Of The Spreadsheets Across The Curriculum Project, Dorien Kymberly Mcgee

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Microbes are prevalent in geologic settings and a growing body of research

suggests the roles they play in geologic processes may be more important than

previously thought, and therefore underestimated. This dissertation addresses the

influence of microbes on the dissolution of limestone in karst settings by analyzing the

stable carbon isotopes and geochemistry of air and waters from three unique cave and

karst settings: West-Central Florida, the Everglades (southern Florida) and The

Bahamas. In Florida, these parameters as well as air/water temperature, rainfall, and

water-level fluctuations were monitored for 22 and 10 months. In the Bahamas,

geochemical data were ...


A Retrospective Analysis Of The Potential Environmental Stressors Responsible For The Decline Of The Natural Populations Of The Florida Apple Snail (Pomacea Paludosa) In The A.R.M. Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, Shannon Ladd 2010 University of South Florida

A Retrospective Analysis Of The Potential Environmental Stressors Responsible For The Decline Of The Natural Populations Of The Florida Apple Snail (Pomacea Paludosa) In The A.R.M. Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, Shannon Ladd

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this thesis is to determine the factors that contributed to

the decline of Florida apple snail ( Pomacea paludosa) populations in the A.R.M.

Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge with the goal of devising management

recommendations to the Refuge regarding population management strategies.

The factors examined that could have potentially contributed to population

decline include the use of copper-based herbicides, insecticide application, the

occurrence of drought, the use of other herbicides, the occurrence of fire, and

non-avian predation. Annual Narrative documents produced by Refuge

managers and staff members, dated from 1951 to 2007, were used to collect

historical ...


Contextualizing Obesity Among Latino Farmworkers: A Critical Analysis Of Structural And Cultural Processes Affecting Farmworker Health And Nutrition In Central Florida, Melissa H. Johnson 2010 University of South Florida

Contextualizing Obesity Among Latino Farmworkers: A Critical Analysis Of Structural And Cultural Processes Affecting Farmworker Health And Nutrition In Central Florida, Melissa H. Johnson

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Migrant and seasonal farmworkers play a critical role in the U.S. economy,

producing food for the American public, while their suffering is often rendered invisible

by their existence on the margins of society. The low wages associated with farm labor

combined with the largely undocumented status of this population severely limits access

to food, housing, and health care, resulting in poor health outcomes. Through the use of a

critical anthropological approach, this research examines the social, cultural, political,

and economic context of obesity among Latino migrant and seasonal farmworkers in

Central Florida. Ethnographic research methods were used to explore ...

“Negotiating The “State Of Exception:” Gypsies’ Encounter With The Judiciary In Germany And Italy, 1860-1914, Jennifer Illuzzi 2010 Providence College

“Negotiating The “State Of Exception:” Gypsies’ Encounter With The Judiciary In Germany And Italy, 1860-1914, Jennifer Illuzzi

Jennifer G. Illuzzi

The tensions between judicial and executive authorities regarding so-called Gypsies in fin de siecle Germany and Italy reveals an inherent contradiction between the universalist dictates of the modern Rechtsstaat and the requirements of building a national state free of perceived outsiders. The frustration of executive authorities with judicial authorities who insisted on protecting the universalist individual enshrined in law pushed executive authorities to utilize the 'state of exception' to achieve their vision of the national community. Rather than choosing to create illiberal laws that would expressly exclude Gypsies from the national body, and would resolve the tension with the judiciary ...
