Community Engagement As A Cornerstone Enabling Learning And Teaching And Research In The Post Modern World, Robbie Collins, O. Curtis, S. Curtis, Laurie Stevenson

Robbie Collins

This paper demonstrates how community engagement can provide a cornerstone enabling research and learning and teaching to meet the challenges of relativity and uncertainty in a post modern world. In the field of education, the question of relevance is a constant criticism. If relevance is to be achieved, research andlearning and teaching need to be interwoven with community and community concerns, in ways that enhancethe outcomes for all stakeholders. The paper examines an academic’s university community engagement practice from a reflexive and cross disciplinary perspective. It seeks to identify the characteristics and qualities that define successful university community engagement ...

The Effect Of Exercise On The Skeletal Muscle Phospholipidome Of Rats Fed A High-Fat Diet, Todd W. Mitchell, N. Turner, Paul Else, Anthony J. Hulbert, John Hawley, Jong Sam Lee, Clinton Bruce, Stephen J. Blanksby

Stephen Blanksby

The aim of this study was to examine the effect of endurance training on skeletal muscle phospholipid molecular species from high-fat fed rats. Twelve female Sprague- Dawley rats were fed a high-fat diet (78.1% energy). The rats were randomly divided into two groups, a sedentary control group and a trained group (125 min of treadmill running at 8 m/min, 4 days/wk for 4 weeks). Forty-eight hours after their last training bout phospholipids were extracted from the red and white vastus lateralis and analyzed by electrospray-ionization mass spectrometry. Exercise training was associated with significant alterations in the relative ...

Introduction, Wenche Ommundsen, Michael Leach, Andrew Vandenberg

Wenche Ommundsen

What some have dubbed 'the new world disorder' of the early 21st century has forced the human and social sciences to re-examine a number of their concepts and theories. One such concept is citizenship. The twin challenges of globalisation and cultural diversity have unsettled such seemingly central assumptions as the primacy of the nation-state and the relative cohesion of its citizenry. It has thus become necessary to rethink what it means to be a citizen, at a local, national, or global level, and to ask what civil, political, social, and cultural rights may be gained, or lost, in the rush ...

Writing As Cultural Negotiation: Suneeta Peres Da Costa And Alice Pung, Wenche Ommundsen

Wenche Ommundsen

Mina Pereira, the narrator of Suneeta Peres da Costa's novel Homework, is born with feelers on top of her head:small protuberances, or antennae, which grow bogger at times of emotional stress. 'She might be a little bit sensitive, thats all' (Peres da Costa, 1999:5), her parents explain, defending their daughter against insensitive strangers accusing her of being an alien, and extraterrestrial, a mutant. Mina is sensitive, as is the young protagonist of Alice Pung's autobiographical narrative Unpolished Gem, sensitive to their difference as reflected in the eyes and behaviour of schoolmates and friends, sensitive, in particular ...

In Ren Jia Country: Negotiating Cultural Belonging In Diaspora, Wenche Ommundsen 2011 University of Wollongong

In Ren Jia Country: Negotiating Cultural Belonging In Diaspora, Wenche Ommundsen

Wenche Ommundsen

This chapter examines some of the complexities of cultural, ethnic, and national belonging that confound the simple equation between culture and citizenship. The main focus is a case study conducted in 2000 and 2001 within the Chinese community in Australia. Without arguing that the findings are equally valid for all times, all diasporic populations, or within all national contexts, the study shows that they exemplary diversity of the Chinese-Australian community makes it an ideal site in which to examine the variables of cultural belonging.


Special Issue: Australian Literature In A Global World - Introduction, Wenche Ommundsen, Tony Simoes da Silva 2011 University of Wollongong

Special Issue: Australian Literature In A Global World - Introduction, Wenche Ommundsen, Tony Simoes Da Silva

Wenche Ommundsen

This Special Issue of JASAL is based on the 2008 ASAL conference ‘Australian Literature in a Global World’ at the University of Wollongong, the conference theme in turn inspired by an ARC Discovery project, ‘Globalising Australian Literature’, currently conducted by a team of researchers at the same institution. The overall (and hugely ambitious) aim of both conference and research project was to explore the effects, on the national literature, of different aspects of globalisation: transnational flows of people, ideas and cultural forms; globalisation in the publishing and education industries; the global marketplace for cultural production. The papers tap into a ...
