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 Jan 2019

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.


Conceptions Of Human Rights, David A. Neil Jan 2019

Conceptions Of Human Rights, David A. Neil

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This chapter considers moral realism, our capacity for moral judgment, the diversity of systems of moral belief, and the normative force of human rights. It argues that the justification of moral practice, as we ordinarily understand it, does not require belief in God. Indeed, in some areas of ethical theory, atheism has explanatory advantages over theism.


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.

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.


Why Slow Tv Deserves Our (Divided) Attention, Aaron L. Burton Jan 2019

Why Slow Tv Deserves Our (Divided) Attention, Aaron L. Burton

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

SBS's suite of slow TV programs, "Slow Summer", arrived at a fortuitous time in our annual media trajectory, when we were briefly relieved of the busyness plaguing our lives.


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 ...


A Global Review Of Farmers' Perceptions Of Agricultural Risks And Risk Management Strategies, Thi Tam Duong, Thomas D. Brewer, Jo Luck, Kerstin Zander Jan 2019

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 ...


Large Scale Marine Protected Areas: Current Status And Consideration Of Socio-Economic Dimensions, Chris Smyth, Quentin A. Hanich Jan 2019

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 ...


It's All About The Sex, Or Is It? Humans, Horses And Temperament, Kate Fenner, Georgina Caspar, Michelle Hyde, Cathrynne Henshall, Navneet Dhand, Fiona S. Probyn-Rapsey, Katherine Dashper, Andrew Mclean, Paul Mcgreevy Jan 2019

It's All About The Sex, Or Is It? Humans, Horses And Temperament, Kate Fenner, Georgina Caspar, Michelle Hyde, Cathrynne Henshall, Navneet Dhand, Fiona S. Probyn-Rapsey, Katherine Dashper, Andrew Mclean, Paul Mcgreevy

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

We propose that the anthropomorphic application of gender stereotypes to animals influences human-animal interactions and human expectations, often with negative consequences for female animals. An online survey was conducted to explore riders' perceptions of horse temperament and suitability for ridden work, based on horse sex. The questionnaire asked respondents to allocate three hypothetical horses (a mare, gelding and stallion) to four riders compromising a woman, man, girl and boy. Riders were described as equally capable of riding each horse and each horse was described as suitable for all riders. Participants were also asked which horses (mares, geldings or stallions) were ...


Space Perception, Movement, And Insight: Attuning To The Space Of Everyday Life After Major Weight Loss, Eli Natvik, Karen Groven, Malfrid Raheim, Eva Gjengedal, Shaun Gallagher Jan 2019

Space Perception, Movement, And Insight: Attuning To The Space Of Everyday Life After Major Weight Loss, Eli Natvik, Karen Groven, Malfrid Raheim, Eva Gjengedal, Shaun Gallagher

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Physiotherapists are well placed to help people adjust and engage meaningfully with the world following major weight loss. Recent research indicates that the body size a patient has lived with for years can continue to affect movement and perception even after largescale weight loss. This article explores this discrepancy in depth from the perspective of phenomenology and space perception and through the concepts of body image, body schema, and affordances. It draws on an empirical example in which a nautical engineer described his lived experience of returning to work following bariatric surgery and the discrepancies he experienced while adjusting to ...


Social Networking Sites And Learning In International Relations: The Impact Of Platforms, Josh Pallas, Joakim Eidenfalk, Susan N. Engel Jan 2019

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.

López Obrador Clashes With Courts After Vowing ‘Poverty’ For Mexican Government, Luis Gomez Romero

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Mexico's new president has reduced his own salary and demanded that all federal workers – including lawmakers and judges – take a massive pay cut, too. That may be illegal.

We're Not Seeing A 'Populist Surge' In This Election. Why Not?, Gregory C. Melleuish

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

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 ...


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 ...


I’M Not Convinced That The Celebratory ‘We’Re Having A Feminist Moment’ Helps Feminism, Sharon Crozier-De Rosa Jan 2019

I’M Not Convinced That The Celebratory ‘We’Re Having A Feminist Moment’ Helps Feminism, Sharon Crozier-De Rosa

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

It hurts to say this on International Women’s Day. The IWD2019 website says: ‘From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance.’ I want to join in the celebrations while remaining mindful of the work that has yet to be done to reach this year’s aspirational theme of #BalanceforBetter. But one thing stops me – the relationship between notions of ‘waves’, ‘turns’, ‘moments’, ‘phases’ and memory.


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 ...


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 ...

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The vast developmental opportunities offered by the world's coasts and oceans have attracted the attention of governments, private enterprises, philanthropic organizations, and international conservation organizations. High-profile dialogue and policy decisions on the future of the ocean are informed largely by economic and ecological research. Key insights from the social sciences raise concerns for food and nutrition security, livelihoods and social justice, but these have yet to gain traction with investors and the policy discourse on transforming ocean governance. The largest group of ocean-users - women and men who service, fish and trade from small-scale fisheries (SSF) - argue that they have ...


Beyond The Heroic Stereotype: Sidney Jeffryes And The Mythologising Of Australian Antarctic History, Elizabeth Leane, Ben Maddison, Kimberley Norris Jan 2019

Beyond The Heroic Stereotype: Sidney Jeffryes And The Mythologising Of Australian Antarctic History, Elizabeth Leane, Ben Maddison, Kimberley Norris

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

In 2010 the Australian Antarctic Names and Medals Committee announced that it had named a glacier near Commonwealth Bay in East Antarctica in honour of Sidney Jeffryes. Jeffryes was a member of Douglas Mawson's Australasian Antarctic Expedition (AAE), 1911-14, and the decision to attach his name to an Antarctic feature, coming just before the centenary of the AAE's departure, reflected a gradual historical revisionism around the expedition occurring at this time. Seeking to 'honour … historically significant figures … whose contributions [to the AAE] have not yet been recognised', the Committee also attached the names of two other previously ignored ...


South-South Cooperation In Southeast Asia: From Bandung And Solidarity To Norms And Rivalry, Susan N. Engel Jan 2019

South-South Cooperation In Southeast Asia: From Bandung And Solidarity To Norms And Rivalry, Susan N. Engel

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This article demonstrates how South-South Cooperation (SSC), as it is now constituted in Southeast Asia, is little more than a liberal norm retaining only echoes of its origins in the 1955 Bandung Conference that first created SSC based on solidarity, common interests, and sovereignty. Southeast Asia is a useful case study of SSC's evolution, as its states have been major players over the decades - with Indonesia proposing the Bandung Conference, Malaysia playing a key role in the 1980s, and Indonesia again at the forefront of the region from the first years of the new century onwards. Thailand and Singapore ...


Perceptions Of Islam And Muslims In Contemporary Japan, Atsushi Yamagata Jan 2019

Perceptions Of Islam And Muslims In Contemporary Japan, Atsushi Yamagata

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

In Japan, the population of Muslim residents is estimated to be only around 170,000; however, the number of Muslims visiting or living in Japan is expected to increase in the future. There have been some studies to date focusing on the development of Muslim communities in Japan, but there has only been limited discussion of perceptions of Islam and Muslims in Japan. In this article, I explore perceptions of Islam and Muslims by analysing incidences of official surveillance of Muslims in Japan, displays of anti-Islamic sentiment by ultra-conservative activists, and newspaper articles about Muslims in Japan. Following the recent ...


How Fighting For The Vote Exposed The Hierarchy Of Nationalisms In The Uk, Sharon Crozier-De Rosa Jan 2019

How Fighting For The Vote Exposed The Hierarchy Of Nationalisms In The Uk, Sharon Crozier-De Rosa

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The Irish border, and subsequently Irish politics, have been declared ‘troublesome’ in negotiations over Brexit – Britain’s exit out of the European Union. As the BBC reports, "In 2018, the Irish border assumed a greater role in British politics than at probably any time since it was created." Yet, ongoing attempts to make sense of Brexit has led some commentators to claim that it is not troublesome Irish politics – it is not even Britain’s relationship with Europe – but rather, it is the relationship between the four-nation state United Kingdom and British democracy that is the problem.

Context And Vowel Harmony: Are They Essential To Identify Underlying Word-Final /S/ In Eastern Andalusian Spanish?, Alfredo Herrero De Haro Jan 2018

Context And Vowel Harmony: Are They Essential To Identify Underlying Word-Final /S/ In Eastern Andalusian Spanish?, Alfredo Herrero De Haro

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Eastern Andalusian Spanish has been studied in detail; however, scholars have focused on production and the debate regarding its phonetic and phonological features is still ongoing. This paper analyses Eastern Andalusian Spanish perceptually to establish whether contextual information (articles, numerals, etc.) and vowel harmony are essential to identify underlying word-final /s/. The correct identification of underlying /s/ has been attributed to contextual information and to vowel harmony; however, no perceptual study has been performed to support these claims. A total of 7126 answers from 153 participants across two experiments are analysed to establish whether context and vowel harmony are necessary ...
