Urban space interventions, appropriation and the creation of differential space: an analysis of Berlin

Tinalee Gallico
This thesis considers the implications of do-­it-­yourself spatial practices for progressive urban and social futures. Emergent methods of space creation and adaptation by the users of space are viewed as an alternative means by which individuals and groups can become an agent of urban change. They provide a self-­construed way to shape space as opposed to acting with or against current normative processes of urban development. Henri Lefebvres concepts of appropriation and differential space are...

A cognitive approach to improving young novice drivers' risk management

Prasannah Prabhakharan
Every day, just over 1,000 young people under the age of 25 years lose their lives as a result of road crashes around the world. One theme that has gained significant attention to address this young novice driver problem is that its resolution does not lie solely in developing the physical skill of driving but through the development of the cognitive skills necessary to drive. As such, the present research aimed to investigate the utility...

The Temporary Sponsored Parent Visa, Migrant Grandparents and Transnational Family Life

M Hamilton, A Kintominas & D Brennan
In Australia, reliance on grandparents for childcare is widespread. But with more than 1 in 4 Australian residents born overseas, grandparent care is not always readily available. Policy shifts have seen a tightening of visa pathways available for migrant grandparents. Permanent parent visas now involve a wait-time of 30+ years, unless a grandparent (or their sponsor) can afford a very expensive contributory parent visa. This has constrained many migrants’ means of maintaining intergenerational relationships in...

Improved techniques to estimate mean sea level, velocity and acceleration from long ocean water level time series to augment sea level (and climate change) research

Phillip Watson
The prominence of the climate change issue has placed more emphasis on examination of the extensive global repository of mean sea level records, which along with temperature and carbon dioxide, remain the key proxy data sets used to monitor and quantify changes in the global climate system. Over the past decade, the scientific literature is replete with conflicting conclusions regarding the detection (or otherwise) of a measurable acceleration in mean sea level attributable to climate...
