Digital identity, an emergent legal concept : the role and legal nature of digital identity in commercial transactions by Clare Linda Sullivan( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full-length study that recognises and discusses digital identity in a transactional context under a national identity scheme. It contrasts the right to identity to the right to privacy in the context of a national identity scheme, and defines identity theft and its consequences. The analysis and findings are relevant to the one proposed for the United Kingdom, to other countries which have similar schemes, and to countries like Australia who have the long term goal of establishing one. Under a national identity scheme, being asked to provide 'ID' will become as commonplace as being asked one's name, and the concept of identity will become embedded in processes essential to the national economic and social order. The analysis reveals the emergence of a new legal concept of identity. This emergent concept and the associated individual rights, including the right to identity, potentially change the legal and commercial landscape

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book commemorates the history of the psychology schools in Adelaide's three Universities: The University of Adelaide, Flinders University and the University of South Australia. Its publication in 2016 coincides with their 60th, 50th and 25th birthdays respectively. Their core activities comprise undergraduate teaching, postgraduate research training, research and postgraduate professional training. Commemorative activities, including this book, provide a link between our present day and the past, and help to explain the evolution of our institutions. They provide an opportunity to reflect on the achievements of each of our academic institutions, and of the individuals within them. Psychology at Adelaide's Universities has occupied a distinctive position within the state, and the documentation of its unique history is an important step in its official chronicle."--Cover description

Law as change : engaging with the life and scholarship of Adrian Bradbrook by Paul Babie( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2011, Professor Adrian J Bradbrook retired from a distinguished scholarly career spanning over forty years. During this time, he made a significant contribution to teaching and scholarship not only in property law - specifically to leasehold tenancies law and easements and restrictive covenants - but also to energy law, especially the emerging and growing field of solar energy. This book brings together those people who worked closely with Bradbrook, each an expert in their own right, to honour a career by critically engaging with the contributions Bradbrook made to property and energy law. Each author has chosen a topic that both fits with their own cutting-edge research and explores the related contributions made by Bradbrook. Most unusually, this collection ranges widely across property law, energy law and human rights"--Publisher

Australia's economy in its international context : the Joseph Fisher lectures( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume collection brings together the first 53 Joseph Fisher Lectures in economics and commerce, presented at the Adelaide University every other year since 1904. Funds for the Lectures, together with a medal for the top accounting student each year, were kindly provided by a £1,000 endowment to the University by the prominent Adelaide businessman Joseph Fisher in 1903. The Lectures adress a wide range of Australian economic issues, in addition to some international economic issues of national significance. They have stood the test of time extremely well, while also providing a reminder of the events and concerns that were prominent at different times during the past century
The Building of Economics at Adelaide by Kym Anderson( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Economics discipline at the University of Adelaide has a distinguished 100 year history of which the University and the State of South Australia can be proud. Very few other departments, of any discipline in Australian universities, could claim to have a majority of its lecturer appointments rising to full Professor status over a period as long as 1901 to 1995. Nor would many other university departments be able to say they have had five of their graduates win Rhodes Scholarships in the past 12 years
A history of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Adelaide 1876-2012 : celebrating 125 years of the Faculty of Arts by Carl Crossin( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) was the first recognised degree at the University of Adelaide. Although informal classes for some subjects were held at the University between 1873 and 1875, the first official University lecture was a Latin lecture at 10 am on Monday 28 March 1876. This was followed by lectures in Greek, English and Mental Philosophy. By 1878, the first BA student, Thomas Ainslie Caterer, completed his studies for the BA degree and in 1879 became the first graduate of the University of Adelaide. ... In the first 50 years of the University's existence, less than ten BA students graduated each year. At the start of the 21st century this figure had climbed to over 300 BA graduates per year but what is interesting is that by 2010 the number of BA graduates was equalled by the number of graduates from separate named degrees within the Faculty plus 70 Music graduates
The spirit of knowledge : a social history of the University of Adelaide, North Terrace campus by Rob Linn( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the following decades the North Terrace site expanded across to Frome Road and down to Victoria Drive facing the River Torrens. This is the story of its development and of the people who played a role in it. Not only describes the influence of architects and planners, but also of the academics, administrators and students whose lives were centred at the University of Adelaide. Includes many archival images and much material is sourced from the University's archive
Australian wage policy : infancy and adolescence by Keith Hancock( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The advent of industrial regulation by tribunal came close to the turn of the century. Wages boards began in Victoria in 1896 and courts of arbitration in 1900. The first day of the new century was also the first day of the Commonwealth of Australia, endowed with a Parliament that was empowered to institute its chosen models of conciliation and arbitration for the prevention and settlement of interstate industrial disputes. This book is a study of the operation of conciliation and arbitration, especially by the Commonwealth Court of Conciliation and Arbitration, from the inception of the system until World War II. It is not, however, a general history of conciliation and arbitration. It does not, for example, deal with the successes and failures of the tribunals in preventing strikes and lockouts; or with the manifold legal issues to which the system gave rise, unless they affected significantly the tribunals' exercise of their power to fix wages and conditions. Rather, it is about fixing the terms of employment; and it attempts to set the tribunals' performance in an economic context. It is about `wage policy', if the term is interpreted broadly enough to include both prescribed wages and other factors that affect the cost of labour, including working hours and leave
Bridging transcultural divides : Asian languages and cultures in global highter education by Kate Cadman( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the diverse approaches and achievements of scholars of Asian cultures and languages in today's global academy. Recent vast increases in student numbers and ethnic diversity have created pressing challenges for a higher education which engages with contemporary concerns for Asian societies as well as for Asian students involved in Western education. This collection of scholarly analyses demonstrates the centrality and significance of Asian Studies and languages for these globalising academic communities. Significantly, it demands a rethinking of traditional 'intercultural' education. In so doing, it brings empirical knowledge as well as multicultural interpretation and multilingual expertise to throw new light on the challenges in higher education today, and to open up new understandings of the demands of the future. - Professor John Makeham Head, Department of Chinese Studies, The Australian National University
Natural history of the Coorong, Lower Lakes, and Murray Mouth Region (Yarluwar-Ruwe) by Luke Mosley( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, a volume in the Natural History Series by the Royal Society of South Australia, explores the natural history of the Coorong, Lower Lakes, and Murray Mouth (Yarluwar-Ruwe) region of South Australia (the CLLMM), a region that has been listed as a Wetland of International Importance under the Ramsar Convention. The book is divided into four main themes: a historical overview of the region; its physical-chemical nature; its biological systems; and its management, resource use and conservation. The effects of large-scale anthropogenic change, climate change, global warming and sea level changes are discussed from multiple perspectives, as are the effects of acid sulfate soils and the overall consequences of the Millennium Drought on the CLLMM's water quality, biological life and food web. The discussion includes information from Ngarrindjeri leaders about the history and culture of the Ngarrindjeri people, the traditional owners of the region's land and waters. The book concludes by establishing the vision and framework required for the important and increasing role that the Ngarrindjeri Nation will play in the shared long-term management of the region."--Cover description
Publishing research in English as an additional language : practices, pathways and potentials( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many universities worldwide now require established and novice scholars, as well as PhD students, to publish in English in international journals. This growing trend gives rise to multiple interrelated questions, which this volume seeks to address through the perspectives of a group of researchers and practitioners who met in Coimbra, Portugal in 2015 for the PRISEAL (Publishing and Presenting Research Internationally: Issues for Speakers of English as an Additional Language) and MET (Mediterranean Editors and Translators) conferences.This volume offers truly global coverage, with chapters focusing on vastly different geo-social areas, and disciplines from the humanities to the hard sciences. It will be of interest to applied linguists, particularly those working in the area of English for Research Publication Purposes, and to language professionals working in research writing support, research supervision and academic publishing, as well as to journal editors and managers."--Publisher

Cyber-Nationalism in China Challenging Western Media Portrayals of Internet Censorship by Ying Jiang( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The prevailing consumerism in Chinese cyberspace is a growing element of Chinese culture and an important aspect of this book. Chinese bloggers, who have strongly embraced consumerism and tend to be apathetic about politics, have nonetheless demonstrated political passion over issues such as the Western media's negative coverage of China. In this book, Jiang focuses upon this passion - Chinese bloggers' angry reactions to the Western media's coverage of censorship issues in current China - in order to examine China's current potential for political reform. A central focus of this book, then, is the specific issue of censorship and how to interpret the Chinese characteristics of it as a mechanism currently used to maintain state control." -- Back cover
AUGUSTUS SHORT : the early years of a modern educator 1802-1847 by MICHAEL WHITING( )

1 edition published in 2014 in Undetermined and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Augustus Short arrived in Adelaide in late 1847 as the first Anglican Bishop of Adelaide; he was forty-five years old, married to Millicent, and they had five children. He was to remain in office for thirty-four years and departed for retirement to England in his eightieth year, much lauded as a distinguished colonist. This volume (a companion to Augustus Short and the Founding of the University of Adelaide, published in 2014) explores Short's life before arriving in South Australia -- his education at Westminster School and at Christ Church, Oxford. An outstanding scholar, Short was ordained a priest of the Church of England in 1827, and taught at Christ Church before serving eleven years in a rural parish in Northamptonshire. Many of the courageous and innovative ideas Short practised as Bishop of Adelaide had their origins in his education, and were influenced by those he studied with -- Bishop Thomas Vowler Short, Bishop Charles Lloyd, Edward Bouverie Pusey and John Henry Newman, among others. Short's first forty-five years were dominated by Christ Church, and this is equally a story of that enduring community of learning and worship as it shaped Short's beliefs and choices in life."--Back cover

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
