"The Amazonian Convention."
An organized movement led by women and dedicated to winning equality took formal shape at the first women's rights convention, held in Seneca Falls, New York in 1848. Many of the women who took part had been active in other social causes, such as the abolition of slavery, before joining the struggle for women's rights. In this 1859 cartoon published in Harper's Weekly, hecklers disrupted the proceedings of a women's-rights meeting.

Brian Schmidt: The accelerating Universe - Vice-Chancellor's Lecture Series
ANU Nobel Laureate Professor Brian Schmidt gives a Vice-Chancellor's Public Lecture. The talk is titled 'The accelerating Universe'. In 1998 two teams traced back the expansion of the universe over billions of years and discovered that it was accelerating. It was a startling discovery that suggests that more than 70 per cent of the cosmos is contained in a previously unknown form of matter, called Dark Energy. In this talk, Brian Schmidt, leader of the High-Redshift Supernova Search Team, des
Distance Education: OERs and Social Inclusion
This special issue explores open educational resources (OER) and the ways in which they can be used to support social inclusion, one of the key challenges that needs to be addressed in today's technologically rich digital environment. OER research is now moving beyond the creation of OER repositories to consideration of how they can be used effectively. Articles in this freely accessible journal address OER in higher education, the role of national and institutional policy with respect to wideni
Temporal Dynamics of European Bat Lyssavirus Type 1 and Survival of Myotis myotis Bats in Natural Co
Many emerging RNA viruses of public health concern have recently been detected in bats. However, the dynamics of these viruses in natural bat colonies is presently unknown. Consequently, prediction of the spread of these viruses and the establishment of appropriate control measures are hindered by a lack of information. To this aim, we collected epidemiological, virological and ecological data during a twelve-year longitudinal study in two colonies of insectivorous bats (Myotis myotis) located i
