Twitter Needs Tony (Not), Marcus O'Donnell Jan 2013

Twitter Needs Tony (Not), Marcus O'Donnell

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The Sunday Telegraph has again weighed into the election with a front cover sure to get lots of comment. A little less provocative than The Telegraph's first effort but designed to garner reaction. As I wrote earlier in the campaign, these grand statements, that once represented the newspaper's editorial power to direct votes, now exist in a much more complex world where media users are also media producers. The consistent editorial bias of News Ltd's overall coverage of the campaign will undoubtedly have some effect, although this is notoriously difficult to measure. But reaction to some of ...


The ‘Twitterisation’ Of Investigative Journalism, Julie N. Posetti Jan 2013

The ‘Twitterisation’ Of Investigative Journalism, Julie N. Posetti

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, the 'social tools' most widely used by journalists in their work, are transforming professional norms and values. The ways journalists engage with these platforms are: challenging notions of objectivity through the convergence of personal and professional lives; propelling the mainstreaming of 'open journalism' models, which promote collaborative research and reportage; and even upending established verification processes. So, what are the implications for investigative journalism? What are the potential benefits of 'social journalism' for research, investigation and verification? How can journalists and news publishers most effectively deploy social media platforms in pursuit of ...


Aggression And Perceived National Face Threats In Mainland Chinese And Taiwanese, Dániel Z. Kadar, Michael Haugh, Wei-Lin Melody Chang Jan 2013

Aggression And Perceived National Face Threats In Mainland Chinese And Taiwanese, Dániel Z. Kadar, Michael Haugh, Wei-Lin Melody Chang

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This study examines manifestations of verbal aggression in an intergroup context between Mainland Chinese and Taiwanese on computer-mediated communication (CMC) discussion boards. We examine the role of perceptions of national identity and face in occasioning instances of aggression in Sino-Taiwanese online interactions. It will be argued that there is a fundamental difference between Mainland Chinese and Taiwanese ways of displaying aggression when discussing cross-Strait issues. While the Taiwanese use abusive terms in order to dissociate themselves from the Mainland Chinese in online discourse, the latter tend to associate themselves with Taiwanese through terms that subsume Taiwanese claims to a national ...


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 Aspects Of Connectivity Conservation: Case Studies, Malcolm Farrier, Melissa Harvey, Solange Teles Da Silva, Marcia D. Leuzinger, Jonathan Verschuuren, Mariya Gromilova, Arie Trouwborst, Alexander R. Paterson Jan 2013

The Legal Aspects Of Connectivity Conservation: Case Studies, Malcolm Farrier, Melissa Harvey, Solange Teles Da Silva, Marcia D. Leuzinger, Jonathan Verschuuren, Mariya Gromilova, Arie Trouwborst, Alexander R. Paterson

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This publication follows on from Volume I in the series on legal aspects of connectivity conservation. It provides five case studies that continue to define and develop connectivity conservation law for supporting protected areas and for providing opportunities to address climate change as part of biodiversity conservation agendas. Volumes I and II together aim to advance conceptual thinking and legal understanding about important law and policy tools and options for supporting the connectivity of protected area systems. 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 ...


A Pattern Theory Of Self, Shaun Gallagher Jan 2013

A Pattern Theory Of Self, Shaun Gallagher

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

I argue for a pattern theory of self as a usefulway to organize an interdisciplinary approach to discussions of what constitutes a self. According to the pattern theory, a self is constituted by a number of characteristic features or aspects that may include minimal embodied, minimal experiential, affective, intersubjective, psychological/cognitive, narrative, extended, and situated aspects. A pattern theory of self helps to clarify various interpretations of self as compatible or commensurable instead of thinking them in opposition, and it helps to show how various aspects of self may be related across certain dimensions. I also suggest that a pattern ...


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).


Target: Biomedicine And Racialized Geo-Body-Politics, Shiloh Krupar, Nadine Ehlers Jan 2013

Target: Biomedicine And Racialized Geo-Body-Politics, Shiloh Krupar, Nadine Ehlers

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

On August 1, 1896, W. E. B. Du Bois began a fifteen-month sociological study of "forty thousand or more people of Negro blood . . . living in the city of Philadelphia." Commissioned by the University of Pennsylvania, and eventually published as The Philadelphia Negro: A Social Study (1899), this work is widely recognized as the first great empirical book on black life in American society. Part of Du Bois' study included an analysis of the health conditions of Philadelphia's black population and might be seen as an example of a race-specific biopolitics of health. For Michel Foucault, biopolitics is that form ...

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.


Landscapes Of Memory And Forgetting: Indigo And Shek Quey Lee, Kate Bagnall Jan 2013

Landscapes Of Memory And Forgetting: Indigo And Shek Quey Lee, Kate Bagnall

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

In this illustrated essay I explore the intertwined histories of two rural settlements - Indigo in north-eastern Victoria, Australia, and Shek Quey Lee in Xinhui county, Guangdong, China - to consider how the rich story of Chinese migration and settlement in Australia has been remembered and forgotten, both in China and Australia. With the growth in interest in the history and heritage of the Chinese in Australia over the past twenty years, we can no longer say that it is a "forgotten" history, yet there are still challenges to researching and telling it. One of these is for Chinese Australian history to ...


Against Fascism And War: Pig Iron Bob And The Dalfram Dispute - Port Kembla 1938, Mike Donaldson, Nick Southall Jan 2013

Against Fascism And War: Pig Iron Bob And The Dalfram Dispute - Port Kembla 1938, Mike Donaldson, Nick Southall

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The 1938 Dalfram dispute involved workers at Port Kembla refusing to load pig iron on a ship bound for Japan and to be made use of in its agression against China and other countries in the region.


Natural Pedagogy And Social Interaction, Shaun Gallagher Jan 2013

Natural Pedagogy And Social Interaction, Shaun Gallagher

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

I briefly review several debates between standard cognitivist theories and more embodied (and enactive) theories in the area of social cognition, especially in the context of developmental studies and recent false-belief experiments with young infants. I suggest that the concept of natural pedagogy (Csibra & Gergely, 2009) fits best with the more embodied and enactive accounts of social cognition, and that it provides a good model for an embodied learning process


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 ...


Dolphin-Friendly Tuna: We're Worrying About The Wrong Species, Quentin Hanich Jan 2013

Dolphin-Friendly Tuna: We're Worrying About The Wrong Species, Quentin Hanich

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Seafood is increasingly marketed as the clean, healthy choice for consumers – full of good oils and proteins and low in fat – with canned tuna a favourite cheap source of healthy protein. But science provides ever-worsening reports on the state of many fisheries, and their effect on marine ecosystems.

As international conservation negotiations flounder, consumers and industry are increasingly relying on eco-labelling to tell which seafood products come from sustainably managed fisheries. But there’s more to tuna than “dolphin-friendly”: what do these labels really tell us?


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 ...


The Petition Of Bah Fook Of Sofala, 1866, Kate Bagnall Jan 2013

The Petition Of Bah Fook Of Sofala, 1866, Kate Bagnall

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This article introduces an unusual and significant historical document from the goldfields of colonial New South Wales – a petition to the Governor of New South Wales signed by more than 270 Chinese men, predominantly goldminers, living at Sofala on the Turon River goldfields in 1866. The petition concerned the unfair conviction of Bah Fook (百福), a fellow miner, for injuring a young white girl in a fight with her mother. The petition provides an interesting window into race relations on the Australian goldfields of the 1860s, highlighting the close and personal interactions of Chinese and white residents and the agency ...


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

Among The Machines: Australian And Nz Artists, Su Ballard

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

I was lead curator and invited scholar for AMONG THE MACHINES. The exhibition included 13 artists from New Zealand and Australia including major figures. The artists are: Ruth Buchanan, Bronwyn Holloway-Smith, Hayden Fowler, Douglas Bagnall, Fiona Pardington, Nathan Pohio, Hannah and Aaron Beehre, Daniel Crooks, Ronnie Van Hout, Susan Norrie, Jae Hoon Lee, Stella Brennan and Ann Shelton. The exhibition was advertised in E-flux, Art in Australia, Art News. I was interviewed on National Radio (4th July 2013), and it has received numerous favorable reviews.


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.
