Middle Class Youth And Education In Neoliberal India, Andrew Deuchar May 2013

Middle Class Youth And Education In Neoliberal India, Andrew Deuchar

Theses

Economic reform and structural adjustment in India has undermined state institutions through which the middle classes have historically reproduced their advantage. Education has been profoundly affected by increasing privatisation and a reduction in government subsidies, which in turn has implications for its accessibility, quality and utility. Given that education has historically been central to the processes of class formation for the lower middle classes, my primary concern is to analyse the capacity of this social group to reproduce their advantage through education in the neoliberal era. While I argue throughout that the Indian middle classes are a socially and culturally ...


Time To Tell: The Complexity Of Wellbeing From The Perspective Of Tweens, Jenna Kathleen Gillett-Swan Jan 2013

Time To Tell: The Complexity Of Wellbeing From The Perspective Of Tweens, Jenna Kathleen Gillett-Swan

Theses

Children's views and opinions on matters of relevance to their lives are infrequently sought, and rarely acted upon. There is an apparent reluctance of adults to seek and include children's perspectives on matters that affect children's lives. Children provide unique insight into various aspects of their lifeworlds that cannot be obtained by objective measures alone, and as such children's informed and personal perspective must not only be collected but also be given due consideration. The dearth of evidence drawn from children's perspectives leads to an incomplete view of how children are faring and the ways ...

Affective State Influences Retrieval-Induced Forgetting For Integrated Knowledge, Christof Kuhbandner, Reinhard Pekrun Jan 2013

Affective State Influences Retrieval-Induced Forgetting For Integrated Knowledge, Christof Kuhbandner, Reinhard Pekrun

Faculty of Health Sciences Publications

Background: Selectively testing parts of learned materials can impair later memory for nontested materials. Research has shown that such retrieval-induced forgetting occurs for low-integrated materials but may be prevented for high-integrated materials. However, previous research has neglected one factor that is ubiquitous in real-life testing: affective state. Methodology/Principal Findings: We investigated whether affect influences the resistance of integrated materials to retrieval-induced forgetting by inducing neutral, positive, or negative affect immediately before selectively testing previously learned textbook passages containing interrelated facts and concepts. As negative affect is known to promote a detail-oriented local processing style, we hypothesized that experiencing negative ...


Alcohol Advertising During Televised Australian Football Finals, Sandra C. Jones, Lance Barrie, Michael Chapman, Nicholas J. Corr, Sondra Davoren Jan 2013

Alcohol Advertising During Televised Australian Football Finals, Sandra C. Jones, Lance Barrie, Michael Chapman, Nicholas J. Corr, Sondra Davoren

Alcohol marketing during sport, and alcohol industry sponsorship of sporting events, is highly lucrative; however, concerns have been raised over the impact on child and adolescent viewers of repeated exposure to alcohol marketing messages. The aim of this research project was to investigate the amount and type of alcohol marketing during two major sporting events in 2012 - the semi-finals and grand final of the AFL and NRL. The broadcasts of these six games were audited for alcohol advertisements and other advertising communications. Almost one-fifth of the screen time included alcohol marketing. Policy and practice implications of these findings are discussed.
