Introduction

In this unit you will encounter many different voices and views of ‘family’, and sometimes you will also be invited to reflect on your own views and assumptions. So, we welcome you to the fascinating study of family meanings. By putting ‘meanings’ at centre stage, and using this as a framework to examine families and relationships, this unit will give you an opportunity to explore the shifting and subtle ways in which people themselves, researchers, policy-makers and profess

2.3 ‘Go Say’ science promotion events
This unit will look at how public engagement in science and technology might be achieved through science promotion. Science promotion and public involvement in policy making can require both formal and informal objectives: some are explicit and some are implicit, some are articulated at the planning stage and some are unexpected. These objectives can entail participation, engagement, knowledge exchange and learning – all of which require a degree of motivation by all parties.

2010 Morrison Lecture: Australia and China in the World
And so today I am delighted to be able to present this, the 70th George E. Morrison Lecture. George Morrison was a man surrounded by controversy. But no-one, not even his greatest detractors, could deny his deep knowledge of China and his fascination with this ancient and continuing civilisation. Morrison was one of a kind. Nonetheless, the truth is he is little known in contemporary Australia. My view is that, 90 years after his death, it is time for that to change. Morrison is one of the most

Wave propagation in random media: diffusion vs. localization
Dr. Thomas Wellens (Physikalisches Institut, Univ. Freiburg): As it is well known, waves are fundamentally distinct from (classical) particles in their ability to display interference.

In this case, wave propagation reduces to a simple diffusion process - like a random walk of a classical particle ("soccer ball in the forest"). But under appropriate circumstances, some interferences may also survive the disorder average and i
