Women And Leadership: Theatre, Sarah Miller Jan 2014

Women And Leadership: Theatre, Sarah Miller

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

"We have something of the utmost importance to contribute: the sensibility, the experience and the expertise of one half of humanity. All we ask is that we are able to do this in conditions of complete equality." (Dorothy Hewitt, launching the Australia Council's 'Women in the Arts' report, 1983) Published in 2005, Rachel Fensham and Denise Varney's important book, The Doll's Revolution: Australian Theatre and Cultural Imagination, argues that the 1990s was a period in which women entered the theatrical mainstream and radically changed not just theatre but the way in which we think about Australian culture ...


'Medieval' Makes A Comeback In Modern Politics. What's Going On?, Clare Monagle, Louise D'Arcens Jan 2014

'Medieval' Makes A Comeback In Modern Politics. What's Going On?, Clare Monagle, Louise D'Arcens

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

According to Hansard, in the parliament of John Howard's first term of government the adjective "medieval" was used eight times. In the following term, however, it cropped up 46 times. What happened? Why did our members and senators suddenly need to describe things as medieval? What happened was 9/11. The spectacle of planes crashing into skyscrapers prompted myriad politicians, in Australia and elsewhere, to denounce the perpetrators as "medieval" What we have seen in recent weeks is medieval barbarism, perpetrated and spread with the most modern of technology. Abbott is not alone; it has become commonplace to describe ...

Thực Thi Công Ước Quyền Trẻ Em Ở Việt Nam:Tuổi Chịu Trách Nhiệm Hình Sự Và Chế Tài Đối Với Người Chưa Thành Niên Phạm Tội, Thi Thanh Nga Pham

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Giới thiệu chung

Tuổi chịu trách nhiệm hình sự (TNHS) và chế tài hình sự hay hình phạt là những vấn đề cơ bản và không thể thiếu trong cả hệ thống pháp luật quốc gia và quốc tế, thể hiện quan điểm và cách thức xử lý người phạm tội, cũng như các biện pháp bảo vệ trật tự xã hội, an toàn công cộng và quyền con người. Việc xác định những giới hạn độ tuổi chịu TNHS thích hợp, đặc biệt là tuổi tối thiểu luôn là vấn đề khó khăn khi xây dựng chính sách hình ...


Careful Who You Chat With: It Could Turn You Into A Criminal, Luke Mcnamara Jan 2014

Careful Who You Chat With: It Could Turn You Into A Criminal, Luke Mcnamara

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Next time you strike up a conversation at your local coffee shop, have a chat in the pub after work, or have a natter with fellow dog lovers as you follow your pooch around the park, you may want to get in early with a few key questions. Like, “Do you have a criminal record?” If yes, I suggest you ask a delicate follow-up: “How serious was your crime?”


A Robot Walks Into A Room: Google Art Project, The New Aesthetic, And The Accident Of Art, Susan (Su) Ballard Jan 2014

A Robot Walks Into A Room: Google Art Project, The New Aesthetic, And The Accident Of Art, Susan (Su) Ballard

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

On the 1st February 2011 Google unleashed the Google Art Project, a new way to engage with the major collections of the world’s art galleries. With the Google Art Project came a new way of viewing, not just art but the other objects that inhabit art galleries. Google Art Project depends on a robot looking machine. This aesthetic machine is a different form of digital material that has entered into what have for a long time been quiet still spaces for human, and not machine contemplation. With an equal focus on the spaces between things as much as on ...


Fisheries, Quentin A. Hanich, Warwick Gullett, Duncan Leadbitter, Alistair Mcilgorm, Glenn J. Sant Jan 2014

Fisheries, Quentin A. Hanich, Warwick Gullett, Duncan Leadbitter, Alistair Mcilgorm, Glenn J. Sant

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Fisheries management is inherently difficult, and often 'wicked'. 'Wicked' problems are difficult to define because they are intermeshed with other complicated and larger problems and include multiple factors that are hard to quantify (Jentoft and Chuenpagdee 2009). Such problems have no clear single solution and require the engagement of stakeholders in an ongoing, cyclical and consultative manner.


Snobbery In The Academy Is Alive And Well And Doing Harm, Brian Martin, Majken J. Sorensen Jan 2014

Snobbery In The Academy Is Alive And Well And Doing Harm, Brian Martin, Majken J. Sorensen

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

A female engineering student walked into her first lab class. One of the male students said: “The cookery class is in another room.”

A professor was always willing to drop everything to talk with a colleague. But when one of his research assistants contacted him, he would say to come back later.

A student wanted to do a survey and commented to a mathematician friend: “I think I’ll seek advice from some sociologists.” The mathematician responded: “What would they know about it?”

Snobbery is a sense of superiority or exclusiveness, often expressed with condescending comments or actions that reject ...


War Crimes And The Parisian Regulation Approach: Representations Of The Crisis Of Antipodean Fordism, Brett Heino, James Dahlstrom Jan 2014

War Crimes And The Parisian Regulation Approach: Representations Of The Crisis Of Antipodean Fordism, Brett Heino, James Dahlstrom

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The crisis of global (and Australian) capitalism that began in the early 1970s was a phenomenon that has been the subject of many competing explanations. Often, however, these accounts artificially separate the economic and the cultural as forces of social change. The result can be forms of reductionism that, although acknowledging important causal factors, fail to link the economic and extra-economic moments of capitalism within a theoretically rigorous political economy. This article deploys a critical political economy perspective that unifies the economic and the cultural within the capitalist mode of production. We do this through a study of Peter Carey ...


Mullen's Choices, Rowan Cahill Jan 2014

Mullen's Choices, Rowan Cahill

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

In late November 2014, illness claimed the life of Geoff Mullen, long-time letter writer to the ‘Letters to the Editor’ page of the Sydney Morning Herald. For years the ‘Letters to the Editor’ section of newspapers had been his public forum, and the Herald published his ‘last hurrah’ the day before his death. Dictated from his deathbed, the letter concerned wealth and income inequality, ending with the caution: “Remember that the enemies of progress are always on the attack”.


A Book-End Approach To Ethics: The Increasing Importance Of Incorporating Ethics Into The First-Year Curriculum, Karina Murray Jan 2014

A Book-End Approach To Ethics: The Increasing Importance Of Incorporating Ethics Into The First-Year Curriculum, Karina Murray

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Recently, the law degree has become a more generalist degree. Yet the Council of Australian Law Deans advises that almost two-thirds oflaw graduates ultimately seek admission to practice. This means that the majority of students commencing a law degree intend to become a solicitor or barrister. Few first-year students, however, are aware of the processes surrounding admission to the profession. They are unaware that merely completing an LLB degree does not a solicitor make. Prospective law students often do not realise that the degree needs to be supplemented by practical legal training (PLT). Beyond that, having satisfied these two academic ...


Ministering Angels, The Camden District Red Cross, 1914-1945, Ian Willis Jan 2014

Ministering Angels, The Camden District Red Cross, 1914-1945, Ian Willis

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Ministering Angels is the story of conservative country women doing their patriotic duty in an outpost of the British Empire. From 1914 Camden district women joined local Red Cross branches and their affiliates in the towns and villages around the colonial estate of the Macarthur family at Camden Park. They sewed, knitted and cooked for God, King and Country throughout the First and Second World Wars, and the years in-between. They ran stalls and raffles, and received considerable community support through cash donations from individuals and community organisations.

Using the themes of soldier and civilian welfare, patriotism, duty, sacrifice, motherhood ...


Hope Logics: Biomedicine, Affective Conventions Of Cancer, And The Governing Of Biocitizenry, Nadine Ehlers, Shiloh Krupar Jan 2014

Hope Logics: Biomedicine, Affective Conventions Of Cancer, And The Governing Of Biocitizenry, Nadine Ehlers, Shiloh Krupar

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This essay explores the deployment of hope within biomedicine. Drawing on Michel Foucault’s account of biopolitics, it argues that hope works in the service of biopolitical imperatives to govern life, and to secure, optimize, and speculate on that life. The essay broadly considers the operations of affect in biomedicine, and specifically examines the governing function of affective conventions of hope—that is, the perceptual, emotional, and corporeal modes of managing and responding to events that support biomedicine’s telos toward the affirmation of life. In relation to illness, hope conditions responses to bodily vulnerability and uncertainty, manages the present ...


Impunity Of Frequent Corporate Homicides By Recurrent Fires At Garment Factories In Bangladesh: Bangladeshi Culpable Homicide Compared With Its Equivalents In The United Kingdom And Australia, S M. Solaiman, Afroza Begum Jan 2014

Impunity Of Frequent Corporate Homicides By Recurrent Fires At Garment Factories In Bangladesh: Bangladeshi Culpable Homicide Compared With Its Equivalents In The United Kingdom And Australia, S M. Solaiman, Afroza Begum

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

How corporations can be best prevented from causing deaths of others has been a critical concern of judges, legislators, prosecutors and academics alike around the world since the 19th century. Concerns for workplace safety have mounted globally in recent decades, propelling the demand for industrial manslaughter prosecution as a more effective use of criminal suits. Like the regulation of human conduct, criminal Jaw is considered to be an instrument for changing corporate behaviour in a way that fosters future conformity with the expectations of society.


Educating Law Students For Rural And Regional Practice: Embedding Place Based Perspectives In Law Curricula, Amanda Kennedy, Trish Mundy, Jennifer Nielsen, Caroline Hart, Richard Coverdale, Reid Mortensen, Theresa Smith-Ruig, Claire Macken Jan 2014

Educating Law Students For Rural And Regional Practice: Embedding Place Based Perspectives In Law Curricula, Amanda Kennedy, Trish Mundy, Jennifer Nielsen, Caroline Hart, Richard Coverdale, Reid Mortensen, Theresa Smith-Ruig, Claire Macken

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The attraction and retention of professionals generally in rural and regional Australia is an on-going concern. Recent attention has focused upon the recruitment of lawyers and legal professionals to rural and regional areas, where the proportion of lawyers practising has steadily declined over the past twenty years. While the precise extent of the decline is difficult to assess, and the causes of recruitment and retention issues for lawyers in rural and regional areas are nuanced and can vary from region to region, it is clear that concern about attraction and retention is a national one. A national survey conducted in ...


Unhcr As A Subsidiary Organ Of The Un: Plurality, Complexity And Accountability, Niamh H. Kinchin Jan 2014

Unhcr As A Subsidiary Organ Of The Un: Plurality, Complexity And Accountability, Niamh H. Kinchin

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The global space is a place where decision-making and regulation involve diverse actors who act outside of State control yet who affect the rights and obligations of individuals and groups. Its innate plurality speaks against the temptation to understand accountability as a predetermined concept. Instead, it is argued that accountability within the global context should be reconceptualised through the relationships of global decision-making bodies. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is a subsidiary organ of the UN. If an enquiry into what UNHCR is accountable for is undertaken through an examination of its relationship with the UN according ...


Review Of "Speaking The Earth's Languages: A Theory For Australian-Chilean Postcolonial Poetics', Michael R. Jacklin Jan 2014

Review Of "Speaking The Earth's Languages: A Theory For Australian-Chilean Postcolonial Poetics', Michael R. Jacklin

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Critical connections between Australian and Latin American literature are few and far between. Equally rare are readings which place Aboriginal literary production in Australia alongside that of Indigenous writing from Hispanic or Lusophone America. While a number of scholars have drawn comparisons between Australian Aboriginal writing and English-language Indigenous literature from North America, Indigenous writing from South and Central America has remained an almost terra incognita for Australian scholarship. Stuart Cooke’s study Speaking the Earth’s Languages: A Theory for Australian-Chilean Postcolonial Poetics reads Aboriginal poetic works by Paddy Roe, Butcher Joe Nangan and Lionel Fogarty along with poetry ...


Illawarra Co-­‐Operatives: The First One Hundred Years, Mike Donaldson, Nick Southall Jan 2014

Illawarra Co-­‐Operatives: The First One Hundred Years, Mike Donaldson, Nick Southall

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The hope and promise of co-operative marketing were to return all profits fairly to the producers and to control the price of dairy products through collective market power. Soon the South Coast and West Camden Co-op opened its own selling floors in Sussex Street, Sydney. Illawarra and Shoalhaven farmers immediately withdrew their consignments from ‘the system’ and sent their produce instead to the fledgling co-operative. On Mondays and Thursdays steamers arrived from Wollongong, Kiama and Shoalhaven. Carrier after carrier had to be engaged to convey the butter, bacon and cheese sent from the South Coast to the Co-op’s floor ...


Women's Leadership In The Trades: An Overview, Georgine W. Clarsen Jan 2014

Women's Leadership In The Trades: An Overview, Georgine W. Clarsen

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Advocacy to encourage women to enter male-dominated trades has a long history, though leadership in this sphere of activism has rarely been documented in feminist histories. Efforts to improve women's working lives have most often focused on facilitating women's entry into the professions, company boards or upper management, and on campaigns to secure equal pay for work of equal value. Throughout the 20th century, however, numbers of women have promoted women's entry into skilled, working-class jobs that were thought to be the natural domain of men. One important reason for questioning the high levels of gender segregation ...


Disability At The Periphery: Legal Theory, Disability And Criminal Law, Linda Roslyn Steele, Stuart Dm Thomas Jan 2014

Disability At The Periphery: Legal Theory, Disability And Criminal Law, Linda Roslyn Steele, Stuart Dm Thomas

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This special issue of the Griffith Law Review is dedicated to an examination of the relationships and intersections between disability, criminal law and legal theory. Despite the centrality of disability to the doctrines, operation and reform of criminal law, disability continues to inhabit a marginal location in legal theoretical engagement with criminal law. This special issue proceeds from a contestation of disability as an individual, medical condition and instead explores disability's social, political and cultural contexts. This kind of approach directs critical attention to questioning many aspects of the relationships between disability and criminal law which have otherwise been ...


Perhaps Tea And Scones Are Ok: The Cwa And Feminism Today, Sharon Crozier-De Rosa Jan 2014

Perhaps Tea And Scones Are Ok: The Cwa And Feminism Today, Sharon Crozier-De Rosa

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Next month the Country Women’s Association (CWA) of New South Wales will vote whether or not to put one of their most valuable assets, their Potts Point headquarters, up for sale. The prospect of the sale has caused concern among some members that the CWA is signalling it is a dying institution. It seems a good time, then, to reflect on the history of the CWA and how it fits in with the modern world of feminism.


Justice With A Vengeance: Retributive Desire In Popular Imagination, Cassandra Sharp Jan 2014

Justice With A Vengeance: Retributive Desire In Popular Imagination, Cassandra Sharp

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The punishment of criminal behaviour has always been a hot topic in popular culture. Whether in fictional crime dramas or in mainstream news coverage, issues of law, justice, and punishment are constantly being refracted and reframed in a myriad of ways. We seem to like watching criminals not only being caught but also receiving the punishment they deserve. We love it when Sherlock Holmes or Patrick Jayne solves the crime on fictional television, and too often we hear stories in the media of a victim’s family that is indignant and angry that the perpetrator is seemingly “getting away” with ...


The Ephemeral Coast: On The Edge Of The Otherly Realm, Ian Buchanan Jan 2014

The Ephemeral Coast: On The Edge Of The Otherly Realm, Ian Buchanan

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The coastline –the space between the ocean and the land– is a both a barrier and an invitation to go beyond the land’s edge and enter an otherly realm. Humans have skated over the water in boats and other kinds of watercraft for thousands of years. But they have always been (and continue to be) reluctant to immerse themselves in the ocean. Despite humanity’s eons long interaction with water, as Charles Sprawson’s marvellous paean to swimming Haunts of the Black Masseur documents, it is only the past 150 years or so that humans have been swimmers and ...


The Nation Or The Globe?: Australian Literature And/In The World, Antonio Simoes Da Silva Jan 2014

The Nation Or The Globe?: Australian Literature And/In The World, Antonio Simoes Da Silva

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Although far more nuanced and complex than am I suggesting here, I want to take the central thesis in Philip Mead’s ‘Proust at Caloundra’, a review-essay of Robert Dixon and Brigid Rooney’s Scenes of Reading: Is Australian Literature a World Literature? (2013), as a reminder of the importance of the national, and indeed the local, in the transnational turn in literary studies of the last decade or so. As Mead notes, slightly tongue-in-cheek, ‘[a]ll models of the world literary system … are structured according to complex political and cultural geometries and desires, as much as by national cultural ...


Cloud-Watching Robots: Douglas Bagnall's Machine Aesthetics, Susan (Su) Ballard Jan 2014

Cloud-Watching Robots: Douglas Bagnall's Machine Aesthetics, Susan (Su) Ballard

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Can a robot waste a day away watching clouds? Aesthetics as a means to approach the world is a form of control until recently limited to humans. This essay uses two works by New Zealand artist Douglas Bagnall to examine the relationship between machines, information and aesthetics. I discuss how Bagnall’s Film-making Robot (2004) and Cloud Shape Classifier (2006) are examples of aesthetic machines that, rather than being defined by information, repetition and the digital specificity of the pixel or the binary, are characterised by an aesthetic dynamism formed between emergence and mutability. Building on the recent identification of ...


Desobediencia Civil, Luis Gomez Romero Jan 2014

Desobediencia Civil, Luis Gomez Romero

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

This paper is aimed to define the term ‘civil disobedience’. The paper traces firstly a brief history of civil disobedience. Thenceforth, it develops the theoretical issues that civil disobedience raises regarding the duty of obedience to law and the institutional organization of dissent in liberal democracies.


Lawyers Look At The Elgin Marbles, But Stars Keep Them Firmly In Sight, Marett Leiboff Jan 2014

Lawyers Look At The Elgin Marbles, But Stars Keep Them Firmly In Sight, Marett Leiboff

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Legal star power is being deployed in the form of the very well-known London barristers, Geoffrey Robertson QC and Amal Alamuddin, in Greece’s latest attempt to have the Elgin or Parthenon Marbles returned to Greece.

Housed in the British Museum in London since 1816, these sculptures have been the subject of contentious legal to-ings and fro-ings since the early 1980s.

Under English law, the Museum owns the Marbles, and says it cannot lawfully return them to Greece. Greece contends they were removed unlawfully all those years ago and should be returned.

The dispute over the Marbles is one of ...


The Future Of History, Rowan Cahill Jan 2014

The Future Of History, Rowan Cahill

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

war in Iraq (2003) in the bloody search-and-destroy mission against non-existent Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) recently confessed to being a little embarrassed.

On the September 2014 eve of the release of The Menzies Era, his book of hero worship about conservative Australian PM Sir Robert Menzies, Howard told an interviewer that, when it became public knowledge, the US intelligence reports he based his decision on regarding WMD were faulty, well, he was embarrassed. Not ashamed, mind you, not distraught … which might be expected, since he has a huge amount of civilian blood on his hands … no, just embarrassed.


In Your Face: Transcendence In Embodied Interaction, Shaun Gallagher Jan 2014

In Your Face: Transcendence In Embodied Interaction, Shaun Gallagher

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

In cognitive psychology, studies concerning the face tend to focus on questions about face recognition, theory of mind (ToM) and empathy. Questions about the face, however, also fit into a very different set of issues that are central to ethics. Based especially on the work of Levinas, philosophers have come to see that reference to the face of another person can anchor conceptions of moral responsibility and ethical demand. Levinas points to a certain irreducibility and transcendence implicit in the face of the other. In this paper I argue that the notion of transcendence involved in this kind of analysis ...


Extensive Food Adulteration In Bangladesh: A Violation Of Fundamental Human Rights And The State’S Binding Obligations, S M. Solaiman, Abu Noman Mohammad Atahar N. Ali Jan 2014

Extensive Food Adulteration In Bangladesh: A Violation Of Fundamental Human Rights And The State’S Binding Obligations, S M. Solaiman, Abu Noman Mohammad Atahar N. Ali

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

© The Author(s) 2014. The right to life is inherently connected with the right to food which implies that any foodstuff be nutritious and safe. The government of Bangladesh bears binding obligations to protect these rights under both international human rights instruments and its national constitution. The violation of these rights has, nonetheless, been commonplace causing numerous human deaths and terminal diseases. The perpetrators have been adulterating foods, flouting laws with impunity and taking advantage of regulatory impotence and governmental lenience for decades. Laws exist in books, regulators subsist in theory, but consumers die without remedies. This situation must not ...


Cinema Of Actuality: Japanese Avant-Garde Filmmaking In The Season Of Image Politics By Yuriko Furuhata (Review), Michael Leggett Jan 2014

Cinema Of Actuality: Japanese Avant-Garde Filmmaking In The Season Of Image Politics By Yuriko Furuhata (Review), Michael Leggett

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The Japanese word eizo is central to an understanding of the significance of the interventions made into the cultural life of the nation by a relatively small grouping of artists and writers working between the 1950s and 1970s. Traditionally used as a phenomenological term in science and philosophy, the character connoted shadow or silhouette, later shifting to signify optical processes. Like the Greek term tehkne, creativeness and the tools used to achieve the outcome are relative, nuanced and complex.
