  • Creative Printmaking in New Zealand, 1930-2007: An Annotated Bibliography

    Ward, Fiona (2012)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    This Annotated Bibliography includes 105 references that record all available published, unpublished and digital material about the history of creative printmaking in New Zealand from 1930 to 2007. As New Zealand academics and printmakers have noted, while other visual media such as painting and photography have always been included in the discourse of art history in New Zealand, for various reasons printmaking has been gradually excluded and marginalised. There is a need to foster an academic and critical interest in printmaking to provide a framework to enable further research and scholarship. This Annotated Bibliography will support future academic and critical explorations of the topic.

  • Economyths

    Kushner, Saville; Kushner, B (2011)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    The case for economic crisis in the UK - the basis of the austerity programme and the part-dismantling of the Welfare State - is assertion rather than analysis. This is evidence of a hegemonic 'single political narrative' which is little subjected to critical scrutiny or public debate. The casualty is deliberative democracy and the quality of public understanding - essentially, a de-education strategy. This analysis challenges such a hegemony and, through its presentation at conferences, public lectures, publications and broadcasts (cited elsewhere in this submission) makes the case for deliberative contestation over social and economic realities and visions. This is an attempt at public education and to trial a diffusion strategy commensurate with the principles of Democratic Evaluation. The methodological approach is Popperian 'falsification'. Each card has an assertion on its face with a (evidence-based) refutation on its reverse - some cards are pedagogical in keeping with the public education aspect of the presentation.

  • The School Reunion and On Holiday

    Perkins, Emily (2010)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    My forthcoming novel The Forrests (Bloomsbury, 2012) was excerpted in the above publications. In this novel I experiment with structure and point of view, presenting the story of one woman's family life through intensely detailed selected memories. Narrative threads are present through all the episodes, but each must be able to stand alone as short fiction pieces, as these excerpts did, even as this writing consciously resists a 'sense of an ending'.

  • Review of the book Kia tangi te titi: Permission to speak - successful schooling for Maori students in the 21st century, Paul Whitinui (ed.)

    Lee, Jennifer (2012)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    While the centrality of culture in Maori education is mostly used in this book in reference to relationships between non-Mäori teachers and Maori students (and their whänau), I want to use cultural connectedness to describe the way culture is also related to and implicated in theory, research, policy and practice in some of the chapters. Hana O'Regan' s personal narrative intersects with international research, historical accounts of New Zealand schooling and decolonising critiques providing a great overview for understanding how the threat of Maori language death has occurred (and continues), and what it may mean for our survival as Maori.

  • Case Study: Disrupting Wall Street - High Frequency Trading

    Neufeld, D; Evans, Bradley (2014-10-29)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    Michael Lewis's book Flash Boys, published in 2014, revealed to the public numerous controversial Wall Street trading practices made possible by advances in technology as well as regulatory changes that were (ironically) intended to improve pricing fairness in the financial markets. Lewis's story focused on the man who blew the whistle: Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian banker who ran the New York trading desk for the Royal Bank of Canada. In 2010, he had noticed some odd system responses to his trading requests and began to ask questions. The answers he discovered, and publicized, about high frequency trading set off a firestorm regarding the moral integrity of the financial markets. Very few people understood what was happening, and fewer still comprehended the central role played by information technology. Questions remain: How does information technology influence our concept of wealth? Why do "flash crashes" occur? Are the markets rigged? Will the next disruption to the financial markets involve technology?

  • Margaret Mead and Derek Freeman: Bibliography of a Controversy

    Laurie, John (1998)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    Derek Freeman’s 1983 attack on Margaret Mead’s classic Samoan ethnography, Coming of age in Samoa, aroused an unprecedented level of interest in the world of anthropology and among the educated public. That interest continues, over a decade later, with the publication of a play based on the lives of Mead and Freeman, and a major new book. The issues, of the nature of humankind and human society, are central to our understanding of humanity and the establishment of good relationships among the peoples of the world. Mead’s Coming of age in Samoa is probably the best known anthropological work ever written and has had a major influence on popular perceptions of Western society and indigenous cultures. Freeman’s claim, that Mead deliberately exaggerated the differences between Samoa and the West in order to advance a particular political agenda, that all human cultures are rooted in a particular biological human nature which is an inheritance from our primate ancestors, and that the study of cultures should have reference to this universal set of human proclivities and tendencies (which different cultural structures and institutions have evolved to guide and restrain) has serious implications for an anthropology which has generally abandoned attempts to explain similarities to concentrate on differences. At this theoretical level there has been much debate about Boas’ commitment to physical anthropology. The critical point is surely that a commitment to cultural determinism does not preclude an interest in biological variables. It is a question of which direction of influence is studied. One of Boas’ main contributions appears to have been to attempt to prove that even such apparently biological variables as head shape are determined by environmental rather than inherited factors. Unlike the early years of the 20th century, it is now the believers in cultural determinism who are insisting on dramatic differences between different societies and those proposing a greater role for biological factors who are arguing the fundamental unity of the human species.
