The Public Sphere And Party Change: Explaining The Modernization Of The Australian Labor Party In The 1960s, Terry Irving, Sean Scalmer Jan 2014

The Public Sphere And Party Change: Explaining The Modernization Of The Australian Labor Party In The 1960s, Terry Irving, Sean Scalmer

Terence H Irving, Dr (Terry)

This article argues that the modernization of the Australian Labor Party was not inevitable or necessary. The party did not modernize because it was overly dominated by trade unions, because society had changed, or because class was no longer central. Instead the transformation of the party was the result of a series of political struggles, in which the modernizers grasped new resources in the changing public sphere - the dynamic new media of post-war Australia.


Making Connections, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe Nov 2011

Making Connections, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Hal Blythe

Last summer as instructors at a creative-writing conference, we had an experience that made us better writers. While critiquing a promising piece of fiction, we became frustrated because we couldn't put our finger on why the story didn't quite work. The tale, which centered around a young soldier's baptismal firefight in Vietnam, at first seemed solid. The main character was believable, the setting was described in gritty realism, and the plot had a beginning, middle, and end. But although the story was technically correct, it didn't really capture our interest. We found we couldn't get ...


Classical Insights And Today's World, Julius M. Moravcsik Dec 2000

Classical Insights And Today's World, Julius M. Moravcsik

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

Professor Moravscik, as President of the Society, was invited to present his views on the current state of classical philosophy at the turn of the millennium. He comments on the role of the History of Philosophy in current education, sketches the work done in classical philosophy during the 20th century, posits Aristotelianism as an antidote for Cartesianism, and recommends a Platonic perspective for epistemology.


Worlds Within World Within The One: Anaxagoras' Parmenidean Cosmology, John E. Sisko Dec 2000

Worlds Within World Within The One: Anaxagoras' Parmenidean Cosmology, John E. Sisko

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

The long-standing puzzle regarding the relation between Anaxagoras' pluralism and Parmenides' monism can be met and solved on its own terms. We need not deny that Parmenides was a numerical Monist and we need not suppose that Anaxagoras failed to adequately consider Parmenides' basic principles. Anaxagoras did not attack these basic principles, because he thought that they were compatible with pluralism. He not only provided a brilliant explanation of the emergence of our world within the Chaos, but he posited a fascinating cosmology of worlds within worlds within the One. And since his Chaos is Parmenides' One under an alternative ...


Celebrating Medicrity At The Bowls, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 2000

Celebrating Medicrity At The Bowls, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Well, you could have bowled me over with a feather, or perhaps a dot com, when I learned today that four bowl games had already been played. Not exactly stellar match- ups, but bowl games nonetheless. And say what you will; a bowl game is still a bowl game.

Reconsidering The Platonic Cleitophon, Kyriakos N. Demetriou Dec 2000

Reconsidering The Platonic Cleitophon, Kyriakos N. Demetriou

Kyriakos N. Demetriou

This article unravels the riddle of the Platonic "Cleitophon" through an examination of S.R. Slings' "Plato, Clitophon" (Cambridge University Press, 1999). It examines the history of the reception of this dialogue from the 19th century to present day Platonic analytic and interpretative approaches.


Shaq, Lsu, The Degree V. Education, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 2000

Shaq, Lsu, The Degree V. Education, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Over the past several days much has been written about the graduation of Shaquille O'Neal from Louisiana State University. Indeed the event has been the butt of many jokes, one of which Shaq generated himself when he told people he was working on his degree at Learn Slow University. He now says that LSU means Love Shaq University.

Review Of Pernille Flensted-Jensen (Ed.), Further Studies In The Ancient Greek Polis. Historia Einzelschriften 138, Cpcpapers 5., Vanessa B. Gorman Dec 2000

Review Of Pernille Flensted-Jensen (Ed.), Further Studies In The Ancient Greek Polis. Historia Einzelschriften 138, Cpcpapers 5., Vanessa B. Gorman

Faculty Publications, Department of History

Further Studies in the Ancient Greek Polis is the fifth volume in the series of Papers from the Copenhagen Polis Centre, which monographs, along with six volumes of CPCActs, have served to distribute the continuing conclusions arrived at by the Centre. The reader is expected to know the purpose of these works, as this volume lacks any kind of prefatory explanation for its existence and leaps immediately into the twelve essays of which it is comprised. The reader discovers that the book is actually two works. The seven initial essays treat specific regions within Hellas, often dealing with issues of ...


Money And Baseball: The Salaries Keep Rising, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 2000

Money And Baseball: The Salaries Keep Rising, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

It was the late Senator Everett McKinley Dirksen of Illinois who once said, "a billion here, a billion there, pretty soon were talking about real money." This quaint observation came to mind over the past few days in baseball as it was "a few million here, a few million there." One wonders if we are now talking about real money.


The Fragmentation Of Self Within The Indian Novel, Michele Gibney Dec 2000

The Fragmentation Of Self Within The Indian Novel, Michele Gibney

Michele Gibney

With the novel Midnight’s Children, Rushdie forged a new path for novel-writing. In his epic story the main character became split into two in order to show the many facets of Indian culture. Instead of gaining an understanding of just one way of life, the reader became privy to all the stories being lived in such places as the Methwold estates, the surreal Sundarbans, and the Magician’s Ghetto. The story of one, single individual was lost in the cacophony of voices that each had their own tale to tell in Rushdie’s novel. This new form of writing ...


Righting Women's Writing: A Re-Examination Of The Journey Toward Literary Success By Late Eighteenth-Century And Early Nineteenth Century Women Writers, Roslyn Stanford Dec 2000

Righting Women's Writing: A Re-Examination Of The Journey Toward Literary Success By Late Eighteenth-Century And Early Nineteenth Century Women Writers, Roslyn Stanford

Theses

This thesis studies the progressive nature of women's writing and the various factors that helped and hindered the successful publication of women's written works in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The thesis interrogates culturally encoded definitions of the term 'success' in relation to the status of these women writers. In a time when success meant, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, 'attainment of wealth or position', women could never achieve a level of success equal to the male elite. The dichotomous worldview, in which women were excluded from almost all active participation in the public sphere ...

The Significance Of The Kicker In American And European Football, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 2000

The Significance Of The Kicker In American And European Football, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

One of the primary objectives in sport is to win. In American sport winning is too often the only thing. Coaches spend sixteen to eighteen-hour days in seven-day weeks searching for all those little keys to victory that are necessary to success. Owners too spend time, energy and especially dollars in the great quest for the glory that comes with winning.

Teaching Ethics At The Primary Level, Joseph R. Sanok Dec 2000

Teaching Ethics At The Primary Level, Joseph R. Sanok

Honors Theses

Over the last century, the teaching of ethics in primary schools has changed greatly. The greatest influence upon public schools has been the shift in parents' attitudes towards teaching ethics in the school setting. Parents have progressively wanted to have more control over their child's ethical learning, thus becoming more critical of the teaching of ethics within public schools. This has led to greater input from parents. Christian ethics had long been the yardstick for ethical teachings, although in 1962 in the Engel v. Vitale case, school prayer was ruled unconstitutional, removing Christian views from the school setting. As ...

Baseball's Rising Salaries - Bud Lite At Congressional Hearing, Richard C. Crepeau Dec 2000

Baseball's Rising Salaries - Bud Lite At Congressional Hearing, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

This past week Mike Mussina signed with the New York Yankees for $88.5M over six-year period with $12M of that a signing bonus to be spread over the contract at $2M per year. Next year Mussina will make $10M pitching for the Yankees. Considered by many to be one of the best pitchers in all of baseball, Mussina gives the Yankees a formidable starting rotation, and this has already led some to concede next year's World Championship to them. This might be a bit premature for early December but it is difficult to deny that they are the ...

Gassy Jack Was Here, C Miller Dec 2000

Gassy Jack Was Here, C Miller

Cathleen Miller

The historic heart of Vancouver, B.C., Gastown was named for Capt. John ""Gassy Jack"" Deighton, whose nickname, fortunately, referred to the gentleman's loquacity rather than his digestive shortcomings. He had been a steamboat pilot, but he helped found Vancouver in 1867 when he offered the locals all the whiskey they could drink in exchange for helping him build a saloon. They took him at his word, and within 24 hours--so the story goes--they had built the Globe Saloon, which is now an intersection. Gaoler's Mews, a courtyard off Water Street, was the site of Vancouver's first ...
