‘We Are Not Just Participants—We Are In Charge’: The Naccho Ear Trial And The Process For Aboriginal Community- Controlled Health Research, Traven Lea, Richard Murray, Margaret Culbong

Aboriginal Policy Research Consortium International (APRCi)

Objective. Methodological criteria that characterise ethically sound community-based studies are often described in overviews but are rarely documented in clinical studies. Research investigating the health of Aboriginal Australians is often small-scale, descriptive and largely driven by non-Indigenous people. The ‘community-controlled’ model of research relating to Aboriginal peoples health is a form of ‘participatory’ research that shifts the balance of control towards those being researched. This paper describes the methodological issues and principles that underpin community-controlled health research; their practical application; and encourages their adoption in research involving Indigenous populations.

Design. Descriptive report of the methods used to conduct the landmark ...


Review Of Women In The Middle Ages: An Encyclopedia, 2 Vols, Louise D'Arcens Jan 2005

Review Of Women In The Middle Ages: An Encyclopedia, 2 Vols, Louise D'Arcens

Faculty of Arts - Papers (Archive)

At the 2003 International Congress at Leeds, a panel posed the question of whether feminist medieval studies can be said today to be "pressing or passé."

Similarly, the appearance of a watershed resource such as Women in the Middle Ages: An Encyclopedia is a clear sign not of only how far scholarship on medieval women has ...


Bringing Some Clarity To The Media Bias Debate, Stephen D. Cooper Jan 2005

Bringing Some Clarity To The Media Bias Debate, Stephen D. Cooper

Communications Faculty Research

Jim A. Kuypers’ recent book, Press Bias and Politics, has made a significant advance in the methodology of inquiring into this issue—although it’s a safe bet that many in the scholarly community will be tempted to dismiss it out of hand. That’s a shame, if so, because even if one is disinclined to accept Kuypers’ conclusion that the press tends to favor ideas associated with the political left, his method can at least put the debate on a firmer footing.


Are You Selling The Right Colour? A Cross-Cultural Review Of Colour As A Marketing Cue, Mubeen M. Aslam Jan 2005

Are You Selling The Right Colour? A Cross-Cultural Review Of Colour As A Marketing Cue, Mubeen M. Aslam

Faculty of Commerce - Papers (Archive)

Should a marketer adopt a pancultural or a culture-specific approach in using colour in marketing? This paper reviews the psychological and sociocultural associations and meanings of colour(s) in a cross-cultural marketing perspective, and outlines its role as a marketing cue. It is argued that a cross-cultural perspective of colour research and application is imperative for developing global marketing strategies, and the cultural values, marketing objectives and desired customer relationship levels would dictate the choice of colour in corporate and marketing communications in the 21st Century. IdentifYing appropriate colour-culture clusters also facilitates the development of a colour theory in marketing.
