Introduction

Earthquakes shake the ground surface, can cause buildings to collapse, disrupt transport and services, and can cause fires. They can trigger landslides and tsunami - in short, earthquakes can be very destructive. In this course you will look at why, where and what happens when they occur and also at how earthquakes are assessed qualitatively and quantitatively.

The processes that do bring about variation are therefore major components of evolution. The most important of these processes, because it is really the ultimate source of all variation, is mutation. A mutation is an alteration in the geneti

Sexual Politics and Revolution: Emma Goldman's Passion [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Clare Hemmings | This paper charts the significance of Emma Goldman's revolutionary thought for a contemporary analysis of sexuality, gender and revolt. Throughout her life (1869-1940) and work Goldman centred sexuality as both key to how capitalism functions (particularly for women) and as a privileged site for political transformation.
