ItemThe pushbike song: Rolling physical cultural studies through the landscape(2015-11) Brabazon, Tara; McRae, L; Redhead, SteveThis article explores how small cities use cycling for both residential transportation and active tourism. While cycling may be child’s play, and indeed a part of childhood socialization, the ‘pushbike’ has a role in regional development. Our work investigates cycling and cycling policy. We then focus on one small city at the southern tip of Western Australia. Albany is attempting to transform itself into a cycling city and an international capital of cycling. This article engages trans-local cultural modelling and evaluates Albany’s goal in terms of health, sustainability and economic development. The synergetic and accidental commitment to cycling in Albany provides a model and opportunities for other small cities to consider, apply and improve. ItemRecession, Recovery, Regeneration and Resilience: Newport and the creation of movement cultures(Human Geographies, 2017-11-25) Brabazon, Tara; Redhead, Steve; McRae, LeanneThis article aligns theories of city imaging and physical cultural studies to probe the city of Newport. This ‘new’ city shares many cultural and economic characteristics with the rest of Wales, but also reveals some significant differences. We focus on and probe the movement policies and cultures in the city , understanding the relationship between bodies and economics, cities and health. Through this discussion, we weave analyses of resilience through the paper, recognising that regeneration focuses on constructing and renovating buildings. We investigate how regeneration and resilience disconnect, with particular consequences for health. P art of this challenge emerges because of the inability to align sport and event tourism with the promotion of walking programmes for residents. Regeneration and resilience connect once more. Creating movement cultures is difficult. The ambivalent success of Newport's policies and initiatives offers both insights and warnings to other small cities. ItemTrump Studies: The Double Refusal and Silent Majorities in Theoretical Times(UTS ePress, 2018-11-28) Brabazon, Tara; Redhead, Steve; Chivaura, RunyararoThis article builds on the embryonic inter/trans/anti/disciplinary Trump Studies to generate a theoretical framework for understanding the Brexit outcome and Trump’s victory. The consequences of researchers operating in a post-expertise political sphere means that new theories are required to create innovative interdisciplinary solutions to difficult, defiant and troubling social and economic problems. Using Jean Baudrillard’s theorization of banality and Stuart Hall’s ‘Great Moving Right Show,’ we consider how higher education researchers remain engaged in public discussions of, about and with ‘the silent majority.’
