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.

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.

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

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.


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.

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 ...

Life's Work : The Accidental Career Of Laura Margolis Jarblum, Julie L. Kerssen Dec 2000

Life's Work : The Accidental Career Of Laura Margolis Jarblum, Julie L. Kerssen

Theses and Dissertations

Laura Margolis Jarblum has been largely overlooked by history, but her story is an important one. She worked for the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee throughout four decades, serving around the world in places including Europe, Israel, Cuba, and China. Her dedication to the welfare of her fellow Jews led her into chaotic and sometimes dangerous situations, even resulting in time spent in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp. She is given credit for saving thousands of lives, both during and after the period of World War II. This paper uses letters, reports, oral histories, and other sources to reconstruct her life ...
