Enemy Aliens: Gli Italoaustraliani E Il Secondo Conflitto Mondiale, Gaetano Rando Nov 2005

Enemy Aliens: Gli Italoaustraliani E Il Secondo Conflitto Mondiale, Gaetano Rando

Faculty of Arts - Papers (Archive)

L’entrata in guerra dell’Italia rese molto problematica l’esistenza della comunità italoaustraliana che negli anni ’30 annoverava oltre 30000 unità ed era diventata la più numerosa collettività nonangloceltica del quinto continente. Le autorità australiane, ritenendo la presenza di tanti non-britannici una grave minaccia potenziale alla sicurezza della nazione, rinchiusero 4727 Italoaustraliani, quasi tutti uomini, in appositi campi di internamento indipendentemente dai titoli di cittadinanza o dalla fede politica. Quale conseguenza le donne e i bambini furono lasciati allo sbaraglio in un ambiente palesemente ostile, fascisti convinti e attivisti antifascisti furono rinchiusi nello stesso campo talvolta con esiti devastanti ...

The coming of sound to cinemas around the world traditionally has been included in the writings about great men and all-powerful companies and how their visions and integrated industry connections helped them maintain a dominating monopoly of the motion picture industry. Important and canonical reports of these business histories have been documented and offered by Tino Balio (1976; 1985; 1993), David Bordwell, Janet Staiger, and Kristin Thompson (1985), Douglas Gomery (1986), Thomas Schatz (1988), John Belton (1994), Robert Sklar (1994), Donald Crafton (1997) and Ruth Vasey (1997) in the US and by Sally Stockbridge (1979), Susan Dermody (1981), John Tulloch ...


The Struggle For Generational Legitimacy: Youth, Antiracism And Counter Movements In Australia Since The Mid-1900'S, Robert Carr Jan 2005

The Struggle For Generational Legitimacy: Youth, Antiracism And Counter Movements In Australia Since The Mid-1900'S, Robert Carr

Faculty of Arts - Papers (Archive)

This paper examines the ways in which many young people have attempted to directly assert and define their place in Australian life since the mid-1990s. It analyses how young people have attempted to actively grasp a sense of social power through racial debates. Since the mid-1990s, a great number of young people have become active participants on two opposing sides of the antiracism movement. On the one hand, many young people attempted to resist mainstream political rhetoric on immigration, land rights and multiculturalism, partaking in protests and school walkouts. On the other hand, counter to antiracism, there have been movements ...


Alternative Solutions: Multiculturalism And The Struggle For Hegemony In Australian Community Broadcasting, Robert Carr Jan 2005

Alternative Solutions: Multiculturalism And The Struggle For Hegemony In Australian Community Broadcasting, Robert Carr

‘Who listens to community radio anyway?’ This has undeniably been the most common response to my investigations of the history of community radio in Australia. However, for those involved in the establishment of 3ZZ Radio in Melbourne, their struggle was about more than broadcasting to their own cultural and linguistic communities. It had a greater social significance, and would change the nature of the Australian broadcasting sector. The history of 3ZZ Radio is an indicator of the social context in which it is set; that is, 1970s Australia. Its rise and plummet out of existence between 1974 and 1977 reflects ...

The idea of non-interference in the domestic affairs of states has been a hallmark of international relations since the seventeenth century. The universalisation of the nation-state model following decolonisation over the twentieth century rendered this ideal of state sovereignty the basis of the modem international political system. States mostly keep out of each other’s business, but intervention may take the form of war to enforce regime change.

Social Networks And Tax (Non-) Compliance In A Multicultural Nation: Emerging Themes From A Focus-Group Study Among Ethnic Minorities In Australia, Maarten Richard Rothengatter

School of Arts and Social Sciences

Purpose – The purpose of this article is to explore the role that different structures of socially embedded networks themselves play in tax non-compliance or evasion, and the contribution that an application of network analysis can make to the study of tax compliance regulation. Design/methodology/approach – This exploratory study applies a network approach and uses focus-group interviewing to unveil tax evasive behaviours that are deeply embedded in specifically selected and structurally different trading networks. Findings – Indicate the kinds of difficulties that tax regulators may face in their attempts to deal with a range of law-defying practices, which operate both within ...
