Visually Mediated Presentation of Self

Seated side by side, the “born digital” Generation Z’s devices endlessly connect. Thumbs tapping incessantly, how frequent/effective is their face-to-face communication? Michikayan and Suaráez- Orozco (2016) argue that “adolescents and young adults use social media for self-presentation and self- disclosure” (Michikayan and Suaráez-Orozco, 2016, p.114). The ubiquitous selfi es, and subsequent postings thereof, suggest that this self-presentation... Read more

Global validation of Live Fuel Moisture Content (LFMC) products from satellite MODIS

Fire ignition and p ro pagat i on depend on Live Fuel Moisture Content (LFMC). Fuels with high LFMC take longer to ignite and water acts as a heat sink, slowing down fi re spread and intensity. Fire management tools require comprehensive spatial and temporal LFMC coverage that limits field sampling to validate remote sensing estimates. High temporal remote sensing, like MODIS, captures daily changes in LFMC. This presentation compares LFMC... Read more

Walking the Representation Tightrope: Party demands, community expectations and immigrant-origin politicians’ representation goals.

This seminar examines ideas of representation in diversifying legislatures. Grounded in in-depth interviews with immigrant-origin politicians across Belgium’s parliaments, I examine “ethnic” MPs’ understandings of their representational and legislative roles. I contend that looking beyond quantitative measures of substantive representation allows us to understand how immigrant-origin MPs navigate tensions between their own career objectives and...

This study explores the extent to which this is also true for preschool teachers.

Brexit or Bremain? Implications of the UK’s EU referendum for Australia and the world.

On 23 June the UK electorate will decide whether to remain a part of the European Union or vote to leave. Advocates of ‘Brexit’ claim that it is time for the EU to regain its sovereignty and break free from the deadening hand of a moribund union. Advocates of ‘Bremain’ argue that being part of the most developed supranational polity in the world enhances the UK’s sovereignty, wealth and security. Three leading experts on European integration... Read more
