Towards Interspecies Sustainability: The Future for Thoroughbreds and Thoroughbred Racing

Iris Marie Bergmann
The international thoroughbred racing industry is increasingly vulnerable to public scrutiny due to its horse welfare record. At the same time, the industry is concerned about its sustainability. The interface of welfare and sustainability however offers little for the horses because of a disconnect between dominant conceptions of sustainability and the protection of animals arising from an anthropocentric orientation of most conceptualisations of sustainability. This study investigates the interface of animal protection and sustainability, a...

Exploring a Potential Facilitating Role for Pain-Related Attentional Bias in Nocebo Hyperalgesia

Tessa Rooney
The nocebo effect comprises the negative counterpart of the placebo. This occurs when administration of an inert intervention, coupled with negative information or conditioning, results in the occurrence of negative effects. While the literature agrees on the importance of negative expectancies in activating nocebo effects, other potential factors remain relatively overlooked. The aim of the present study was to use a novel gaze-augmented dot-probe task to investigate whether pain-related attentional bias contributes to nocebo effects....

Pharaonic Obsessions: Ancient Egypt, an Australian Story

Candace Richards
Pharaonic Obsessions: Ancient Egypt, an Australian Story explores the modern history of Egyptology through the lens of Australian collecting practices, showcasing the University of Sydney’s significant holdings of ancient Egyptian material culture.

Dataset for Adams et al (2022). Commensal black rats (Rattus rattus) select wild vegetation over urbanised habitats

M.W.D. Adams, L.S. Grant, T.G.L Kovacs, S.Q.T Liang, N. Norris, M.M Alessi & P.B. Banks
Human commensal species are thought to depend so closely on resources provided by humans that they are effectively ‘natives’ of urban environments. However, while their adaptations to urban existence are well understood, their ecology and habitat choices have not been closely examined. This study investigated the habitat preferences of the archetypal commensal species, the invasive black rat Rattus rattus, at the urban-bushland interface in Sydney, Australia, and modelled the results using isodar analysis. Unexpectedly, we...

Fire Safety Engineering: The Final Report 8 of 8

Peter Johnson, David Lange, Jose Torero, Ashley Brinson & Marianne Foley
The Final Report develops a pragmatic plan on a transition from the current state of fire safety engineering and design in Australia, which differs across states and territories in relation to regulation, registration, and other practice controls, to the required regulatory, education, accreditation and registration state which will ensure a full and proper profession for fire safety engineers.

Student social isolation: Remedying causes and impact in large business schools

Celina McEwen
Social isolation is an issue for universities because most students experience various forms of isolation during their studies. This can be a more or less persistent feeling that impacts students’ wellbeing and/or their capacity to fulfil their study potential. Whether the causes are academic, environmental, socio-cultural or health-related, social isolation can be remedied at the point of crisis or as a preventative measure throughout students’ university life. This research report examines the literature on social...
