Social Networking Sites And Learning In International Relations: The Impact Of Platforms, Josh Pallas, Joakim Eidenfalk, Susan N. Engel

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This article reports on a pilot undergraduate subject that incorporated a range of technology-enhanced learning approaches including online lectures, an online site for in and out of class communications, and strong encouragement for students to blog and use Twitter. This paper evaluates student engagement through the social networking sites (SNS), focusing on the online communication and content platform. We examine whether changing from an educationally oriented SNS platform to Facebook impacted on student engagement and feedback. To achieve this, both empirical data and qualitative student feedback were used.


Young People, Online Fandom And The Perils Of Child Pornography Legislation In Australia, Mark J. Mclelland Jan 2019

Young People, Online Fandom And The Perils Of Child Pornography Legislation In Australia, Mark J. Mclelland

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

In 1971 the editors of Oz magazine were prosecuted for obscenity in a London courtroom for their infamous ‘School Kids Issue’, almost the entire contents of which had been created by a team of young people. In today’s Web 2.0 environment, similar kinds of content to that featured in the magazine is created by young people and made ubiquitous on fan websites. In particular ‘manips’ (manipulated images) of all kinds of pop culture heroes from boy band members to characters from Harry Potter are inserted into pornographic contexts. Whereas in the 1970s it was obscenity legislation that was ...

Large Scale Marine Protected Areas: Current Status And Consideration Of Socio-Economic Dimensions, Chris Smyth, Quentin A. Hanich

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Global targets for Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) have evolved in response to rising global concerns about the health of the world's oceans and numerous scientific studies demonstrating the benefits of MPAs as a conservation tool. Our research paper analyses the research needs required to address stakeholder and government concerns from both developed and developing State viewpoints, and build a greater understanding of the benefits and impacts of Marine Protected Areas for the marine ecosystem and the stakeholders that depend on it. In order to satisfy these research needs, and achieve global conservation targets, it is necessary to significantly increase ...


Killed In The Line Of Work Duties: We Need To Fix Dangerous Loopholes In Health And Safety Laws, Diana J. Kelly Jan 2019

Killed In The Line Of Work Duties: We Need To Fix Dangerous Loopholes In Health And Safety Laws, Diana J. Kelly

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

There is a pressing need to define employer responsibility when there is a "triangulated" employment relationship - such as between a worker, labour hire organisation and a host employer. This is an area where unions have rightly been calling for greater clarity and specificity.


Colonialism And Male Domestic Service Across The Asia Pacific, Julia T. Martinez, Claire K. Lowrie, Frances Steel, Victoria Haskins Jan 2019

Colonialism And Male Domestic Service Across The Asia Pacific, Julia T. Martinez, Claire K. Lowrie, Frances Steel, Victoria Haskins

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Examining the role of Asian and indigenous male servants across the Asia Pacific from the late-19th century to the 1930s, this study shows how their ubiquitous presence in these purportedly 'humble' jobs gave them a degree of cultural influence that has been largely overlooked in the literature on labour mobility in the age of empire. With case studies from British Hong Kong, Singapore, Northern Australia, Fiji and British Columbia, French Indochina, the American Philippines and the Dutch East Indies, the book delves into the intimate and often conflicted relationships between European and American colonists and their servants. It explores the ...


Gendered Emotion Management And Teacher Outcomes In Secondary School Teaching: A Review, Rebecca Olson, Jordan J. Mckenzie, Kathy Mills, Roger Patulny, Alberto Bellocchi, Fiona Caristo Jan 2019

Gendered Emotion Management And Teacher Outcomes In Secondary School Teaching: A Review, Rebecca Olson, Jordan J. Mckenzie, Kathy Mills, Roger Patulny, Alberto Bellocchi, Fiona Caristo

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This systematic search and review of international literature (1979-2017) finds links between emotion management and gender (in 1/2 the studies), and teaching attrition outcomes (1/3). Results contextualise these connections, suggesting female teachers use deep acting strategies, though experience more emotional exhaustion and unpleasant emotions. Male teachers practice distancing and surface acting, and experience depersonalisation, but also success in controlling disruptions and stimulating subject interest. Studies are limited by self-reported data and omission of school context, but highlight important teacher organisational identifications, suggesting future research use observational methods for understanding emotion management as an embedded, interactionist phenomenon.


Acting Oneself As Another: An Actor's Empathy For Her Character, Shaun Gallagher, Julia Gallagher Jan 2019

Acting Oneself As Another: An Actor's Empathy For Her Character, Shaun Gallagher, Julia Gallagher

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

What does it mean for an actor to empathize with the character she is playing? We review different theories of empathy and of acting. We then consider the notion of "twofoldness" (Wollheim), which has been used to characterize the observer or audience perspective on the relation between actor and character (Smith). This same kind of twofoldness or double attunement applies from the perspective of the actor herself who must, at certain points of preparation, distinguish between the character portrayed and her own portrayal effected in her craft. We argue that this concept helps us to understand how the actor can ...

Buzz And Pipelines: Knowledge And Decision-Making In A Global Business Services Precinct, Simon Ville, Claire Wright Jan 2019

Buzz And Pipelines: Knowledge And Decision-Making In A Global Business Services Precinct, Simon Ville, Claire Wright

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This paper provides a historical analysis of an urban services district through its examination of the Melbourne wool trade precinct in the 1920s. It is a study of both a local and global community whose social and spatial interaction facilitated large-scale trade of a complex commodity that has rarely been examined. Geographic mapping of the local and global connections of the precinct has been combined with archival evidence. It reveals the "buzz" of the Melbourne precinct, created by local social and professional connections among wool brokers and buyers. "Pipelines" to wool growing and textile regions were developed through overseas branches ...

Low-Key Nsw Election Likely To Reveal A City-Country Divide, Gregory C. Melleuish

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

It may come as news to many people living in New South Wales, but there is a state election to be held on March 23. There has been little of the hullabaloo associated with elections, although I have noticed the occasional election poster in the front yards of houses as I walk along the street.

A Global Review Of Farmers' Perceptions Of Agricultural Risks And Risk Management Strategies, Thi Tam Duong, Thomas D. Brewer, Jo Luck, Kerstin Zander

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Farmers around the world face and manage a wide range of enterprise-related risks. These risks are increasing due to a range of factors including globalisation, increased trade in agricultural products, and climate change, jeopardising agricultural enterprises and forcing farmers to adjust their production and management strategies. Here we present results of a systematic literature review, following PRISMA protocol, of farmers' perceptions of, and responses to, agricultural risks. Using data reduction method (factor analysis) and descriptive statistics, we analysed 197 studies and found that weather-related risk (55%), biosecurity threats (48%), and human risk (35%) are the significant risks perceived by farmers ...

One of the most significant, and unremarked, features of the 2019 Australian federal election has been the absence of what might be termed a "populist surge".

'Social License To Operate' In The Blue Economy, Michelle A. Voyer, Judith Van Leeuwen Jan 2019

'Social License To Operate' In The Blue Economy, Michelle A. Voyer, Judith Van Leeuwen

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The Blue Economy is an ocean based economic growth model gaining traction around the world. The way in which the Blue Economy is conceived and understood differs significantly across different sets of actors. A particular area of contestation exists around which ocean based industries or sectors can be considered to be 'Blue'. This highlights the possibility of the Blue Economy becoming a forum through which the legitimacy of different private uses of ocean resources is contested and debated. The question of legitimacy of Blue Economy activities and sectors is explored through a critical engagement with the notion of a 'social ...


Constructively Tough? Neither Side Has Committed To Fully Adopting Perhaps The Most Important Recommendation Of The Banking Royal Commission, Andrew D. Schmulow Jan 2019

Constructively Tough? Neither Side Has Committed To Fully Adopting Perhaps The Most Important Recommendation Of The Banking Royal Commission, Andrew D. Schmulow

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Among the many recommendations of the banking Royal Commission was a Board of Oversight for the two regulators in charge of financial institutions; the Australian Securities and Investments Commission and the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority: ASIC and APRA. Since then APRA's own internal review conducted by deputy chairman John Lonsdale and NSW Supreme Court Judge Robert Austin, Australian Competition and Consumer Commission commissioner Sarah Court and UNSW professor Dimity Kingsford-Smith has found APRA to be soft on enforcement and timid by comparison to its international peers. Nonetheless, and to demonstrate that APRA still doesn't get what it doesn ...
