Item1950s Athens as Palimpsest: A BBC Radio Play by Louis MacNeice(2015-10-29) Georganta, KonstantinaLouis MacNeice’s Portrait of Athens, a radio play broadcast by the BBC in November 1951, came at a time of reconstruction throughout Europe but also at a time when the world was on the verge of yet another war. In it we find the city’s bones, Athens of Thucydides, Demosthenes, Pericles and Socrates, but also a modern city where you could hear street cries, radio tunes and trams and visit both Kolonaki and the district of New Smyrna where Asia Minor refugees had settled almost thirty years earlier. Twenty-four centuries were transposed to twenty-four hours and twenty-four hours squeezed into the space of one with the play focusing on questions of memory, identity, and lived or remembered traumas. What the audience got as a result was a representation of the varied layers that made up modern Athens, a portrait of the city as palimpsest in contrast to other accounts of the same period where the past dominated over the present making the latter non visible.

ItemAcademic Terror: Ideology in Analysis(Flinders University School of Law, 2008-04) Kurtschenko, JoeyThe purpose of academic writing is to analyse. Although this is true of the form, there is still room within analysis to move into ideological veins, putting forward views alongside analysis or sometimes in place of it. Linguistics provide us with some of the tools to see these occurrences take place, yet literary theory opens up new doors and enables us to be critical of texts without being critical of authors. In this paper, linguistic and literary techniques are presented before being applied to three separate texts on ‘terrorism’, showing how it is defined and the processes by which the techniques avoid abjection, with extra texts being utilised where appropriate. It concludes that, although ideology does not make texts useless, there is a potential for influential issues to arise. ItemACE 2016 Handbook : 45th Australian Conference of Economists(Flinders University, 2016-07-11) Flinders UniversityHeld at Flinders University 11-13 July 2016 ItemThe Acheulian Industry of rock shelter IIIF-23 at Bhimbetka, Central India - a preliminary study.(Australian Archaeological Association, 1978-09) Misra, V.N.In the last three and a half decades systematic exploration of many regions in India for palaeolithic remains has been carried out by workers from several institutions, the majority of them from the Deccan College, Poona, working under the inspiration and guidance of Professor H.D. Sankalia. Acheulian industries have been found over almost all of the country except the Indo-Gangetic plains and the western coast. As a result of these studies the geographic distribution of Acheulian industries is now fairly satisfactorily known. ItemAcross Cultural Boundaries: Greek and Aboriginal Australians in Contact(Flinders University Department of Languages - Modern Greek, 2011) Kanarakis, GeorgeThe Greeks and the Indigenous people of Australia represent two cultures of ancient origins within the dominant Australian society. Opposing discrimination on the basis of ethnic and minority distinctions, both support the oneness of all people. This is the first paper, to my knowledge, which attempts to provide a comprehensive picture of the two cultures in contact. It examines both direct and indirect influences and the impact of Aboriginal Australian cultural aspects on a variety of first generation Greek Australians’ artistic expression, including literature (poetry, prose, drama), music and visual arts (painting and sculpture). ItemActivities of the Archaeological Society of Victoria Concerning the Confluence Site of the Dry Creek and the Maribyrnong River in 1974/75.(Australian Archaeological Association, 1975-10) Gallus, AlexanderA grant from the Australian Institute of Aboriginal Studies has made it possible to begin ordering of the large archaeological material and of the relevant field notes which have accumulated since collection of material began in 1952. Excavation by the Archaeological Society at this site began in 1966. The excavations made it possible to produce a comprehensive stratigraphy of the confluence area.
