      In this Essay, the role of social media in progressive political change is examined in the context of the Arab Spring uprisings. The concept of social media is explained, and Clay Shirky’s arguments for and Malcolm Gladwell’s ...
    • ‘Competitors in the surf-riding contest’: battle as theme in the first three surf novels 

      Sandtner, Jake; Krauth, Nigel (TEXT, 2021)
      In surf fiction it is common for wave-riders to be tested. The test of self – battling against nature, against others, and against one’s own capabilities – is a popularthematic pathway for discovery, growth and freedom, ...
    • Early surf fiction and the white worldview 

      Krauth, Nigel; Sandtner, Jake (TEXT, 2021)
      This paper examines the first 90 years (from 1849 to 1940) in the development of surf fiction. It focuses on how, at the genre’s beginnings, the view taken of surfing was shaped by the colonial worldview, with its attendant ...
    • Low-energy elastic electron scattering from helium atoms 

      McEachran, RP; Hamilton, KR; Bartschat, K (Atoms, 2021)
      We reinvestigate a key process in electron-atom collision physics, the elastic scattering of electrons from helium atoms. Specifically, results from a special-purpose relativistic polarized-orbital method, which is designed ...
