    Cyber-Dependent and Cyber-Enabled Crime: Legal Responses and Challenges
    Cormier, Monique; McKenzie, Simon; Perry, Mark; Roy, Alpana; de Zwart, Melissa; Adams, Michael; Selvadurai, Niloufer; Forrest, Heather; Cormier, Monique; McKenzie, Simon (Legal Issues in Information Technology, 2022)

    The term "cybercrime" is any crime committed using computers or online networks.1 It is more constructive, however, to consider cybercrime in two categories: cyber-dependent crime and cyber-enabled offences.

    Engaging Dog Owners through Wildlife Aversion Training: DogFest
    Tkaczynski, A; Rundle-Thiele, S; Foster, M; Mair, Judith; Aktas, Gurhan; Kozak, Metin (International Case Studies in Event Management, 2024)

    DogFest is promoted as a celebration of dogs. Within a wider programme aimed at having fun, DogFest delivers opportunities for dog owners, dog trainers and the wider community to learn about wildlife aversion dog training. The case aims to introduce wildlife aversion, a behaviour that dogs can perform to protect and avoid wildlife. Some dog owners attending the event signed up for training programmes that embedded wildlife aversion as one behaviour within a wider 4-week dog training programme. There are a variety of resources available such as dog obedience training schools, books, television shows and webinars from experts that are designed to enable current or potential dog owners to learn about and gain the skills to manage their dog’s behaviour. One module provides dog owners with wildlife aversion training techniques, while other modules take dog owners through the steps needed to walk nicely on a lead, come when called, and to keep dogs safe.

    Positionality and Its Implications for Researching the Police in Vietnam
    Jardine, M; Luong, HT (Introduction to Policing Research: Taking Lessons from Practice, 2023)

    This chapter explores issues in undertaking policing research, especially regarding power dynamics in knowledge production as they relate to research and researchers in the Global North and South. Knowledge on policing is dominated by scholars from the Global North. Increasingly, there is attention being paid to whether research is ethical, not only whether participants give informed consent, etc, but whether researchers have the right to study people and phenomena of any sort in the Global South. The chapter provides an overview of some perspectives of researcher positionalities, and their advantages and limitations when conducting research on potentially sensitive topics, such as policing, in one-party communist states, in this case, Vietnam. To better elucidate the practical and methodological implications of researcher positionality, three brief case studies are provided. The chapter concludes by noting that research is a collective effort, notwithstanding the constraints inherent within some researcher positions, while enabling advantages in others, and the impact that different positions have on the production of policing knowledge in relation to Vietnam.

    The Multiplicitous Metaverse: Purposeful Ways of Applying and Understanding eXtended Reality in Learning and Teaching Frameworks
    Della-Bosca, D; Grant, G; Patterson, D; Roberts, S; Geroimenko, Vladimir (Augmented and Virtual Reality in the Metaverse, 2024)

    This chapter explores the use of eXtended reality (XR) technologies in the context of learning and teaching, focusing on how these technologies can be used to create immersive and meaningful educational experiences. Using specific projects, including virtual and augmented reality in pharmacy education, layered augmented reality for participant learning and bespoke environments for simulation, we demonstrate the potential of XR to enhance learning and promote deeper understanding and engagement with complex tasks and nuanced concepts. Whilst discussing these projects we also introduce a broader philosophical exploration of the ‘Metaverse’, examining the ways in which XR technologies are contributing to the emergence of new digital realities that are interwoven with physical experiences, transforming the way we interact with virtual and physical spaces, with avatars, and with information deployed in augmented, virtual, and mixed reality experiences. We argue that by exploring a multiplicitous notion of the metaverse, pedagogical design has the potential to benefit the way we learn and teach. The projects discussed in this chapter demonstrate how technological affordance can support design research methodology in the creation and deployment of XR experiences, for immersive, engaging, and effective educational experiences for academic purpose, and for the lifelong learning of a general audience.

    Developing communities of practice in online classrooms: Tools and activities for increasing student engagement
    Shoecraft, Kelly; Msalmi, Mohamed; Abid, Nadia; Moalla, Asma (E-Learning in Higher Education: Models, Instruments and Perspectives, 2022)

    The rapid shift to online teaching (due to the Covid-19 pandemic) provided opportunities to further explore online student engagement, a topic previously lacking in research (Redmond et al, 2018). During this shift to online teaching, I became interested in pedagogical tools and methods for creating interactive, inclusive, and engaging spaces for all students in order to: increase participation; encourage students to co-construct knowledge; and develop an online community of practice.

    This chapter reports on my own teaching experience while teaching students enrolled in a Masters degree program in TESOL at an Australian university in 2020. In this chapter, student engagement is defined and discussed using Redmond et al's (2018) framework for student engagement in online environments. The five elements of the framework are: Social engagement, Cognitive engagement, Behavioural engagement, Collaborative engagement, and Emotional engagement.

    According to Redmond et al (2018), all five elements are required for effective student engagement and academic success. Throughout this chapter, I discuss strategies and specific tools used to encourage students to participate in online activities - synchronously and asynchronously - and share their lived experiences. I also discuss the important role of the educator in increasing participation and developing a community of practice in online classrooms.

    An Auditory History of Early Modernity: Listening to Enlightenment and Industry in Britain, 1700–1900
    Denney, Peter; Groth, Helen; Julian, Murphet (The Edinburgh Companion to Literature and Sound Studies, 2024)

    In Britain, the arrival of modernity was frequently associated with sound. A watershed was reached in the nineteenth century, when the noise of industrialisation came to be heard as a defining feature of modern life.1 For some commentators, the unprecedented amplification of sound, generated by the factory, the railway, and other innovations, prompted a celebration of power and progress. Other listeners, however, regarded industrial noise with considerable anxiety as a form of sonic oppression, which silenced human voices and damaged auditory environments.

    Ellison, David; John, Juliet; Wood, Claire (The Edinburgh Companion to Charles Dickens and the Arts, 2024)

    Household words contributors Dudley Costello and W. H. Wills begin their brief historical survey of the puppet arts, 'The Pedigree of Puppets' (1852), by airily dispensing with the need to cover their 'tedious' origins in the ancient world.1 Anyone attempting a related survey of Dickens and puppets would be unwise to emu- te this selective approach. Puppets are simply too rarely encountered in Dickens's work to leave anything out.

    Shriek and Hum: Industrial Noise and Productivity
    Ellison, David; Groth, Helen; Murphet, Julian (The Edinburgh Companion to Literature and Sound Studies, 2024)

    This chapter takes its title from an essay written by the American anti-noise campaigner Julia Barnett Rice, in which she complains that ‘the “hum” of industry has now made way for the shriek of industry, and it is perhaps well to call attention here to the fact that noise is not an essential part of progress’.1 Although written in 1907, this is something of a late entry in a much longer and well-documented urban battle against irruptive noise, but the terms differ here.2 For one, Rice does not object to a class of sound but rather to a narrow subset.

    Self-Determination Theory in Physical Activity Contexts
    Wang, JCK; Hagger, MS; Ryan, Richard (The Oxford Handbook of Self-Determination Theory, 2023)

    Regular participation in physical activities of sufficient duration and intensity has been consistently associated with adaptive health benefits among people of all ages, including special populations. This chapter provides a review on self-determination theory in the physical activity contexts. First, the chapter presents the benefits of and guidelines on regular physical activity participation. Next, it reviews the effectiveness of self-determination theory in identifying the determinants of physical activity behavior and the processes involved. Specifically, the relationships between psychological need satisfaction, autonomous motivation, and physical activity participation will be examined. Next, the chapter reviews studies related to the process of internalization in physical activity participation and intervention studies in creating an autonomy-supportive environment. It also reviews studies that integrate self-determination theory with other theories. Finally, it identifies future directions for research applying the theory in the physical activity domain.

    Identifying as a ‘Climate Migrant’: Implications for Law, Policy, and Research
    Farbotko, C; Nicholson, Calum; Mayer, Benoit (Climate Migration: Critical Perspectives for Law, Policy and Research, 2023)

    Many cases of human mobility are now reported on and discussed as a consequence of climate change, regardless of whether climate change has, technically, caused the mobility in question. Headlines such as ‘[c]limate disasters “caused more internal displacement than war” in 2020’ and ‘“[i]ntolerable tide” of people displaced by climate change’ are commonplace. Beyond the issue of contested accuracy underscored by lack of scientific causality establishing ‘climate mobility’ as an empirically observable phenomenon is another important issue: that ‘climate mobilities’ (particularly the more politically charged and publicly discussed variants ‘climate migration’ and ‘climate refugee’) exist as socially significant concepts—ideas that have general currency and circulate in and across public policy, in news media, and in science itself.

    Introduction: History, historiography and horror in the twenty-first century
    Howell, A; Green, S; Howell, Amanda; Green, Stephanie (Haunted Histories and Troubled Pasts: Twenty-First-Century Screen Horror and the Historical Imagination, 2024)

    This edited collection speaks to how a transnational array of recent screen entertainments participate, through horror, in the social and creative work of transforming 'the past into a meaningful and sense-bearing part of the present' (Rusen 2006: 17). It is motivated by the recognition that twenty-first -century film and television narrative has been characterized by a growing, popular engagement with history, memory and the past - including a worldwide movement to reconcile past losses and injuries with present legacies.

    Magic in Here: Brisbane's Alternative Record Stores From the 1970s to the Digital Age
    Green, Ben; Arnold, Gina; Dougan, John; Feldman-Barrett, Christine; Worley, Matthew (The Life, Death, and Afterlife of the Record Store: A Global History, 2023)

    Independent record stores Rocking Horse Records and Skinny’s Music both opened in Brisbane, Australia, in the mid-1970s and became hubs for the local music scene across generations. As vital sources for recordings and information from the world of alternative music, both stores endured police raids for allegedly obscene material through the repressive pre-1989 political era while employing musicians behind the counter and hosting hundreds of all-ages “in-store” shows.

    Deferred Demons: Diasporizing the haunted home in Babak Anvari's Under the Shadow
    Ellison, David; Karpinellison, Zachary; Howell, Amanda; Green, Stephanie (Haunted Histories and Troubled Pasts: Twenty-First-Century Screen Horror and the Historical Imagination, 2024)

    Babak Anvari's film Under the Shadow (2016) looks pointedly beyond haunted house tropes to envision a resentful, violent and restlessly haunted home. In his account of a djinn-infiltrated apartment, Anvari draws on memories of childhood, their vivacity sharpening and personalizing an account of domestic space at its least secure. Although the film's audience has proved to be international in scope, Anvari's complex imagining of home speaks with and to the specific register of diasporic experience.

    Defying Deficit Views of Literacy through RefugeeCrit and Multicultural Literacies
    Veliz, Leonardo; Heinrichs Henry, Danielle; Diaz, Adriana; Veliz, Leonardo; Farias, Miguel; Picard, Michelle (Reimagining Literacies Pedagogy in the Twenty-first Century: Theorizing and Enacting Multiple Literacies for English Language Learners, 2024)

    While forced displacement is not a new phenomenon, in recent years it has become increasingly protracted, reaching unprecedented levels largely due to a confluence of factors. Armed conflicts, persecution, human rights violations and environmental crises are driving millions of people from their homes, creating complex humanitarian challenges. Since 2010, in particular, there has been a significant increase in the number of forcibly displaced groups seeking refuge. According to the Refugee Council of Australia (2023), 89.3 million people were forcibly displaced worldwide in 2021. As a result, a vast number of refugees now reside across international borders in contexts where language, culture and education systems differ greatly from their previous experiences.

    Fresh Material: New Australian Textile Art
    Burton, Laini (Fresh Material: New Australian Textile Art, 2021)

    Textile-based arts have long occupied vexed territory, characterised as being between binaries such as high and low art, amateur or professional practice, and craft or hobby. As a genre, it is often seen to sit on the fault lines of fine art, fashion and dress. In this ‘and/or’ space, textile art affects a kind of rupture to its attendant binaries where it can eschew rigidly defined classifications through its tendency toward cross-pollination. And, although it holds a well-documented position at the sidelines of the art historical canon, textile art has the distinct advantage of crossing class divisions even while being implicated within its own histories of gendered and racialised labour. Its broad range of mediums, techniques and processes make textile art a genuinely democratic form of material language. The far-reaching historical and cultural entanglements of textile art stretch back thousands of years. The story of textile arts is, quite simply, the story of human civilisation. Therefore, it has been subject to assimilation and adaptation, economics and politics, power, and the heavy legacy of empire.

    A Superficial Skin Scarification Method in Mice to Mimic Streptococcus pyogenes Skin Infection in Humans
    Pandey, Manisha; Good, Michael F; Proft, Thomas; Loh, Jacelyn MS (Group A Streptococcus: Methods and Protocols, 2020)

    Skin infections caused by Streptococcus pyogenes are a significant health concern in the tropics and among Indigenous populations of developed countries. To study the immunobiology of skin infections and to develop preventative and therapeutic measures to target these infections, an in vivo model is vital. We developed a mouse model to investigate immunity to skin infections and for testing the efficacy of several vaccine candidates. This article describes the method of induction of superficial skin infections, their progression and regression, and processing of samples to obtain critical readouts and analyses. This model could be valuable to inform clinical studies.

    'We're Americans': Remembering the 'other America' in Jordan Peele's Us
    Howell, A; Howell, Amanda; Green, Stephanie (Haunted Histories and Troubled Pasts: Twenty-First-Century Screen Horror and the Historical Imagination, 2024)

    Before revealing any plot details for his second feature, in May 2018 Jordan Peele shared on Twitter a poster image: a Rorschach-style inkblot rendering of two women. It was our first glimpse at the film's doppelganger motif and Lupita Nyong'o's dual role as middle-class mother Adelaide Wilson and her monstrous double, Red. In Monstrous Possibilities, Lucy Baker and I (Howell and Baker 2022) observe the prevalence of the doppelganger in contemporary horror entertainments featuring monstrous female protagonists, noting how it recalls the female Gothic's depiction of repressed subjectivities and their return.

    Closing the Loop on Local Food Access Through Disaster Management
    Reis, Kimberley; Desha, Cheryl; Brears, Robert (The Palgrave Encyclopedia of Urban and Regional Futures, 2022)

    This chapter presents the context for “local food contingency” to address the twenty-first-century food resilience in the face of food security challenges. Using a disaster management lens (i.e., planning for prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery), the authors overview three Australian examples to explain opportunities arising for urban and regional food futures. This includes discussing the concept of “shared responsibility” in disaster management and the potential for using this concept to build community-level food resilience. The chapter concludes with a call to use disaster management initiatives and thinking to inform improved decision-making for food resilience and, in turn, resilient communities.

    The sociolinguistics of urban multilingualism: Toronto and Melbourne
    Walker, JA; Hajek, J; Loakes, D; Diskin-Holdaway, C; Docherty, G; Grohmann, Kleanthes K (Multifaceted Multilingualism, 2024)

    Changing patterns of global migration and increasing ethnolinguistic (super)diversity hold sociolinguistic consequences for heritage/community languages (HCL) and majority languages in large urban centres. Studies in different cities have noted the existence of (multi-)ethnolects, which may arise from second language acquisition and/or long-term bilingualism and may take on indexical social value. This chapter compares two majority English-speaking cities in Canada (Toronto) and Australia (Melbourne) that are characterised by increasing ethnolinguistic diversity. Previous research has identified (multi-)ethnolectal behaviour in both cities that has only recently been the subject of systematic investigation. Toronto English shows different overall rates of usage of a range of phonetic/phonological and grammatical/discourse-pragmatic variables, although parallel conditioning of the variation by language-internal factors across younger speakers suggests that speakers share the same underlying system. Previous work on Melbourne English has similarly identified a number of linguistic features characteristic of particular ethnolinguistic background. Adopting the variationist sociolinguistic approach, these projects explore the function of language in constructing and expressing (ethnic) identity in situations of ethnolinguistic (super)diversity and the potential for multiple linguistic systems to co-exist.
