Who Are Our Nomad’S Today? Deleuze’S Political Ontology And The Revolutionary Problematic, Craig A. Lundy Jan 2013

Who Are Our Nomad’S Today? Deleuze’S Political Ontology And The Revolutionary Problematic, Craig A. Lundy

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This paper will address the question of the revolution in Gilles Deleuze's political ontology. More specifically, it will explore what kind of person Deleuze believes is capable of bringing about genuine and practical transformation. Contrary to the belief that a Deleuzian programme for change centres on the facilitation of 'absolute deterritorialisation' and pure 'lines of flight', I will demonstrate how Deleuze in fact advocates a more cautious and incremental if not conservative practice that promotes the ethic of prudence. This will be achieved in part through a critical analysis of the dualistic premises upon which much Deleuzian political philosophy ...


Rampant Food Adulteration In Bangladesh: Gross Violations Of Fundamental Human Rights With Impunity, S M. Solaiman, Abu Noman Mohammad Atahar N. Ali Jan 2013

Rampant Food Adulteration In Bangladesh: Gross Violations Of Fundamental Human Rights With Impunity, S M. Solaiman, Abu Noman Mohammad Atahar N. Ali

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Food adulteration in Bangladesh is rampant and an increasingly serious concern for its residents. Several studies including those of the Directorate General of Health Services reveal that hundreds of people are getting killed every year eating adulterated foodstuffs and no one seems to have any real concern about such a life-threatening wrongful act. Food adulteration is criminally prohibited, but the wrongdoers care little about this proscription simply because of the continued apathy of the governmental agencies concerned and implicit acceptance or insensible ignorance of consumers. However, the current fragmented legal and regulatory regime for food safety in Bangladesh falls short ...

How Do You …? Use Film Viewing To Enhance Students’ Analytical Skills?, Alfredo Herrero De Haro Jan 2013

How Do You …? Use Film Viewing To Enhance Students’ Analytical Skills?, Alfredo Herrero De Haro

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Many teachers, and I have been one of them, treat listening skills as something that is innate and that can be neither learnt nor taught. That is, as something that students either can or cannot do, and as something that teachers have no control over. However, trial and error in lessons has shown me how, irrespectively of students’ level in the L2, there are certain things that we can teach students to make them better listeners and to help them understand how to improve their (foreign) language comprehension.

The starting point will be preventing our students from being passive listeners ...

The legal research and analyses reflected in these papers span international, regional, national and local levels. A range of legal instruments existing in ...


Methodological Lessons In Neurophenomenology: Review Of A Baseline Study And Recommendations For Research Approaches, Patricia Bockelman Morrow, Lauren Reinerman-Jones, Shaun Gallagher Jan 2013

Methodological Lessons In Neurophenomenology: Review Of A Baseline Study And Recommendations For Research Approaches, Patricia Bockelman Morrow, Lauren Reinerman-Jones, Shaun Gallagher

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Neurophenomenological (NP) methods integrate objective and subjective data in ways that retain the statistical power of established disciplines (like cognitive science) while embracing the value of first-person reports of experience. The present paper positions neurophenomenology as an approach that pulls from traditions of cognitive science but includes techniques that are challenging for cognitive science in some ways. A baseline study is reviewed for lessons learned, that is, the potential methodological improvements that will support advancements in understanding consciousness and cognition using neurophenomenology. These improvements, we suggest, include (1) addressing issues of interdisciplinarity by purposefully and systematically creating and maintaining shared ...


Boycotting Israeli Academics, Or Boycotting Academic Freedom?, Gregory L. Rose Jan 2013

Boycotting Israeli Academics, Or Boycotting Academic Freedom?, Gregory L. Rose

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

On Wednesday last week, the Student Representative Council at the University of Sydney adopted a motion to boycott Israeli academics. The motion called specifically for the University to cut its current research ties with the Technion, Israel’s leading higher education technology institute, and supported the general academic boycott of Israel called for by the University of Sydney’s Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (CPACS).

Effective Crisis Governance, Brian Martin Jan 2013

Effective Crisis Governance, Brian Martin

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

When a crisis develops, what sort of governance—what sort of system for running society—is most resilient? Does centralized control give the best prospect of survival? Or is something more decentralized needed?

Possible political sources of crisis include military invasion, internal coups, political paralysis, major corruption, and revolutionary change. Wars in the past century triggered changes in governance in countries such as Germany, Japan, and Cambodia. Coups affected dozens of countries, from Chile to Greece. Revolutions transformed Russia, China, and Iran.

At least as significant are changes enabled by belief systems. The spread of neoliberalism—based on belief in ...


Ensuring The Preservation Of Submerged Treasures For The Next Generation: The Protection Of Underwater Cultural Heritage In International Law, Lowell Bautista Jan 2013

Ensuring The Preservation Of Submerged Treasures For The Next Generation: The Protection Of Underwater Cultural Heritage In International Law, Lowell Bautista

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This paper views the UCH Convention as an important and progressive development in the field of international law. The UCH Convention, akin to the LOSC, is likewise a compromise package of solutions to a delicate issue of indisputable global significance. Hence, despite its flaws, it should be regarded no less as a monumental international instrument for providing a wider scope of protection for underwater cultural heritage. The fact that the UCH Convention was adopted was success enough. In accordance with its Article 27, the UCH Convention entered into force on 2 January 2009 for States which have deposited their respective ...


Securing The Resources Of The Deep: Dividing And Governing The Extended Continental Shelf, Clive Schofield Jan 2013

Securing The Resources Of The Deep: Dividing And Governing The Extended Continental Shelf, Clive Schofield

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Half of the world's coastal states are in the process of delineating continental shelf limits seawards of their 200 nautical mile exclusive economic zones. The paper briefly outlines this process and progress towards the finalisation of such limits. Key potential resource opportunities that may arise within the "extended continental shelf' areas are then highlighted and challenges in securing rights over these resources explored.


Rethinking The Secular: Religion, Ethics And Science In Food Regulation, Richard Mohr Jan 2013

Rethinking The Secular: Religion, Ethics And Science In Food Regulation, Richard Mohr

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This paper explores some issues at the intersection of regulation and religion, as they apply to food. It reports on a work in progress examining the regulations and values that affect choices at food and drink outlets in an inner suburban street in Sydney.

It is part of a larger projected study of food as a central social, material and religious concern. In it we are exploring questions around community relations in a culturally and religiously diverse society. Here I focus on the ways religious, ethical and scientific considerations interact with regulatory regimes, whether those of government, industry, or religious ...


This Belongs To Me, The One Dollar Note: The Eternal Returns Of Appropriation, Ian A. Mclean Jan 2013

This Belongs To Me, The One Dollar Note: The Eternal Returns Of Appropriation, Ian A. Mclean

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The dictionary meanings of appropriate and misappropriate are the same: to take something for one’s own use without the owner’s permission. Appropriate also has an additional dictionary meaning: to use something for a purpose that it wasn’t originally intended for. Poetic appropriation is quite different. It does often use images without the owner’s permission and often for an unexpected purpose, but its practice descends from hermeneutics (from Hermes, the ancient Greek messenger of the gods): the ancient art of interpreting the world’s speech. Its methods derive from theories of mimesis and simulation that can be ...


Out Of The Big Smoke: Crime Fiction In 2013, Sue Turnbull Jan 2013

Out Of The Big Smoke: Crime Fiction In 2013, Sue Turnbull

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Oddly enough and against trend – all those Scandinavian crime novels bobbing up in translation – I spent most of the year travelling Australia in crime fiction.

From East (Peter Cotton’s Canberra in Dead Cat Bounce) to West (Alan Carter’s Perth in Getting Warmer) with many intriguing side trips in between; a trip to Thailand with Angela Savage (The Dying Beach), and a retreat to rural South East New South Wales with Stuart Littlemore (Harry Curry: Rats and Mice).

Reviewing the route taken simply confirms my suspicion that Australian crime fiction has become emphatically “regional”. The city is no longer ...


Political Speeches And The Illusion Of Perfect Pitch, Marcus O'Donnell Jan 2013

Political Speeches And The Illusion Of Perfect Pitch, Marcus O'Donnell

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott’s speechifying at the opening of the Australian War memorial’s Afghanistan Gallery has been reported as a kind of momentary cease-fire between the rival leaders. But it was unmistakably part of the election campaign.

I happened to catch it live on ABC News 24.

Like any ceremony that marks Australian military involvement in America’s wars on terror it was a fundamentally dishonest display hyping “our” sacrifice with barely a mention of the horrific sacrifices of the Afghan civilians. That aside it was instructive.

Mostly it showed quite clearly why Kevin Rudd is popular ...


Obama Inauguration Speech: A Historic Moment For Gay And Lesbian Equality, Marcus O'Donnell Jan 2013

Obama Inauguration Speech: A Historic Moment For Gay And Lesbian Equality, Marcus O'Donnell

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Much has been made of the fact President Obama became the first president to mention the word gay in an inaugural address.

But the significance lies not in what he said but how he said it.

In declaring, “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law” Obama not only declared himself abstractly for “gay rights”, he placed these rights at the heart of the central ideals of the American story.

Obama’s whole speech sprung from his reiteration of the much sung hymn to equality from the Declaration of ...


Not Dead Yet: Emerging Trends In Radio Documentary Forms In Australia And The Us, Mia Lindgren, Siobhan A. Mchugh Jan 2013

Not Dead Yet: Emerging Trends In Radio Documentary Forms In Australia And The Us, Mia Lindgren, Siobhan A. Mchugh

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This paper maps contemporary trends in Australian and American radio documentary production. The genre is experiencing a renaissance, as can be seen in the growing number of websites, blogs and podcasts dedicated to radio documentary productions. In addition, the number of freelancers wanting to produce radio documentaries has increased dramatically in Australia over the past five years. This paper traces the evolution of radio documentary forms and explores how globalisation of radio listenership via podcasting and sharing of content on social media is beginning to change documentary. It explores how stellar programs such as This American Life (TAL) and Radiolab ...


Among The Machines: Australian And Nz Artists, Su Ballard Jan 2013

The Surface Of Language, Madeleine T. Kelly Jan 2013

The Surface Of Language, Madeleine T. Kelly

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The roots of these paintings are fragments. Forms that appear grotesque, hollowed or as though composed of splintered fields are spliced together in oneiric landscapes. Their content and process are a sort of sabotage – deformed protagonists appear caught in the act of breaking and in turn collide with the push and pull of paint. If this is aestheticising destruction, it is only in an ironic hope to interrogate conflict that surrounds drone warfare, blind consumption and the massacre of living things.

The lines in the collection of stones exhibited here provide a surface of exchange for the intersection of language ...


Imaginings On The Edge: Myth, Mourning And Memory In Sydney's Fringe Communities, Ian C. Willis Jan 2013

Imaginings On The Edge: Myth, Mourning And Memory In Sydney's Fringe Communities, Ian C. Willis

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Sydney’s urban sprawl has moved across the Cumberland Plain and swallowed up former rural communities and created new suburbs on the rural-urban fringe. Urban growth has precipitated new cultural landscapes and destroyed others as the metropolitan edge makes its way across the countryside. The outer metropolitan area is a theatre for the re-making of place in fringe communities that illustrate the dynamic nature of the rural-urban frontier and the contested forces that are unleashed by urban growth.


Joint Attention In Joint Action, Anika Fiebich, Shaun Gallagher Jan 2013

Joint Attention In Joint Action, Anika Fiebich, Shaun Gallagher

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

In this paper, we investigate the role of intention and joint attention in joint actions. Depending on the shared intentions the agents have, we distinguish between joint path-goal actions and joint final-goal actions. We propose an instrumental account of basic joint action analogous to a concept of basic action and argue that intentional joint attention is a basic joint action. Furthermore, we discuss the functional role of intentional joint attention for successful cooperation in complex joint actions.


Song In The Dark, Christine Howe Jan 2013

Song In The Dark, Christine Howe

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Where do you end up when you have nowhere to go, and no one to turn to? Paul isn't thinking clearly. After destroying a series of relationships - with his friends, his flatmates, his mum - he finally hurts the one person he cares about most of all. And then he runs away. An extraordinary and heartrending story of love, betrayal, addiction and hope.


Ethical And Legal Issues In Teaching About Japanese Popular Culture To Undergraduate Students In Australia, Mark J. Mclelland Jan 2013

Ethical And Legal Issues In Teaching About Japanese Popular Culture To Undergraduate Students In Australia, Mark J. Mclelland

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Interest in Japanese popular culture, particularly young people’s engagement with manga and animation, is widely acknowledged to be a driving factor in recruitment to undergraduate Japanese language and studies courses at universities around the world. Contemporary students live in a convergent media culture where they often occupy multiple roles as fans, students and ‘produsers’ of Japanese cultural content. Students’ easy access to and manipulation of Japanese cultural content through sites that offer ‘scanlation’ and ‘fansubbing’ services as well as sites that enable the production and dissemination of dōjin works raise a number of ethical and legal issues, not least ...


Legislative Implementation Of The Law Of The Sea Convention In Australia, Warwick Gullett Jan 2013

Legislative Implementation Of The Law Of The Sea Convention In Australia, Warwick Gullett

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

All States with marine and maritime interests need to ensure that their domestic laws enable them to meet their obligations, and to take advantage of the rights afforded to them, under the international law of the sea. This body of international law is structured around one of the most extensive and widely ratified international treaties: the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea ('LOSC').1 This paper reviews the general process by which obligations and rights in international treaties become part of domestic law and then examines Australia's experience in incorporating into its domestic law three broad ...


'The Books Don't Talk To Me!': Postgraduate Student Groups And Research Student Identity Formation, Felicity Bell, Rita Shackel, Linda Roslyn Steele Jan 2013

'The Books Don't Talk To Me!': Postgraduate Student Groups And Research Student Identity Formation, Felicity Bell, Rita Shackel, Linda Roslyn Steele

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This paper explores alternative spaces for learning amongst postgraduate research (PGR) students in the form of research-related groups such as reading and discussion groups, writing groups, seminar series or social groups. Our research with PGR students and academics explores the pedagogy and role of such groups in student learning and identity formation. In this paper, we discuss our findings related to PGR student needs and the factors prompting the formation of research-related groups. A survey of 36 PGR students revealed that students were reasonably satisfied with the formal components of their research degrees such as supervision and mandatory units of ...


Review: 'Disobedience: The University As A Site Of Political Potential, Rowan Cahill Jan 2013

Review: 'Disobedience: The University As A Site Of Political Potential, Rowan Cahill

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The radicalism of the 1960s and 1970s, and related student insurgency, is still largely uncharted territory when it comes to Australian history. There is a small body of scholarly research comprinsing theses, book chapter, journal articles, and an equally small number of relevant books. To my knowledge only one book, by Mick Armstrong (2001), attempts to survey and grapple with the entire period, its politics and complexities; in 114 pages, this is a brief but useful contribution.


An Ocean Of Leisure: Early Cruise Tours Of The Pacific In An Age Of Empire, Frances Steel Jan 2013

An Ocean Of Leisure: Early Cruise Tours Of The Pacific In An Age Of Empire, Frances Steel

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

In the late nineteenth century, the Union Steam Ship Company of New Zealand (USSCo.) offered a series of cruise tours from the ports of Sydney and Auckland through the islands of the South Pacific. The cruises complemented excursions to the Mediterranean, the "old country" and other "worn lines of pleasure," remarked the Sydney Morning Herald in 1898. They even offered a novel contrast to "doing Japan." Australian settlers had largely ignored their island neighbours, the newspaper continued, yet the cruise program indicated the range of "splendid holiday resorts" that lay on their doorstep. Although regular trading steamers made the Pacific ...


Introduction: Nationalism And Transnationalism In Australian Historical Writing, Sharon Crozier-De Rosa, David Lowe Jan 2013

Introduction: Nationalism And Transnationalism In Australian Historical Writing, Sharon Crozier-De Rosa, David Lowe

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

One of the strongest trends in Australian historical writing over the last two decades has been a drive to emphasise the nation’s connectedness with the rest of the world. Across a range of historical genres and topics, we have seen a new enthusiasm to explore entanglements between Australian history and that of other places and peoples. The history of travel has been an important contributor to this line of inquiry, but it is at the more intellectual, imaginative and emotional levels that the greatest gains are sometimes claimed for the study of what has become known as ‘transnationalism’. This ...


Same Sex Marriage Ends The Debate, Leads The Coverage, Marcus O'Donnell Jan 2013

Same Sex Marriage Ends The Debate, Leads The Coverage, Marcus O'Donnell

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Kevin Rudd’s promise to introduce legislation for “marriage equality” within the first 100 days of his government, if elected, was one of the few concrete new promises to emerge in the election debate.

This promise, which came at the end of the debate, led the news in a number of debate round-ups internationally and locally. Britain’s Independent had a story online within half an hour of the debate’s conclusion headlined: “Australia election debate: Kevin Rudd promises to legalise same-sex marriage” and news.com.au had a story: “Rudd commits to gay marriage”.

It is interesting that this ...
