Media representations Of Arabs & Muslims in post-multicultural Australia /

by Nakhoul, Ghassan.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2013 A thesis submitted in fulfilment of the requirements for the Master of Arts by Research, Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences The University of SydneySummary: This research examines the representations of Arab and Muslim Australians in the media and political discourse on the issues of terrorism, boat people and the Cronulla riots, during the Howard years. The research is based on analysing events, political statements, media reports and broadcasts that have negatively portrayed the Arabic and Muslim communities in Australia. The study argues that the contemptuous depiction of Arabs and Muslims in the mainstream media was due to two factors: Orientalist attitudes and the ushering of a new post-multiculturalism era which is now being carried out under the banner of social inclusion.Availability: (1)

Poverty in Australia : listening to journalists. /

by Muller, Denis.

Publisher: Fitzroy Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2000Description: vi, 19 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2000Summary: It was agreed by all that economic distribution was unequal, but that this was an inevitable consequence of the unequal distribution of opportunity, native talent, intelligence, energy and good health. There were divergent views about whether it was reasonable to call this 'unfair'. The bottom line was, if the social consensus was to be preserved, people needed to believe that the have-nots were being cared about, particularly in a society like Australia where the gap between the haves and have-nots is growing. There was some concern about this. The One Nation phenomenon was cited as evidence that the social fabric was wearing thin in places.

Silencing dissent : how the Australian government is controlling public opinion and stifling debate. /

by Hamilton, Clive (ed.) | Maddison, Sarah (ed.).

Publisher: Crows Nest, N.S.W. Allen & Unwin 2007Description: xiv, 279 p.Summary: Over the past decade Australia has undergone a profound transformation, a kind of conservative-populist counter-revolution. The Howard Government has abandoned both the quest for reconciliation and the idea of multiculturalism. It has closed our borders to all those seeking refuge here by boat, by the use of military force. It has adopted a foreign policy of a more uncritically pro-American kind than was seen even in the era of Menzies. As part of that policy, alongside the Americans and the British, it has drawn Australia into the unlawful invasion of Iraq, which has predictably seen that country descend into the bloody chaos of sectarian civil war. It has turned its back on the first stage of the international fight against global warming, by refusing to sign the Kyoto Protocol. It has allowed the erosion of vital principles of our system of government - like the independence of the public service and the idea of ministerial responsibility. What has been puzzling about this process is the absence of powerful scrutiny of the drift of the nation, of a spirited, honest and intelligent debate. While Australia has been transformed, large parts of the nation have seemed to be asleep. In a book I edited in 2005, Do Not Disturb: Is the media failing Australia?, one possible answer to this puzzle was suggested -- the melancholy condition of the mainstream political media. In Silencing Dissent an even more alarming answer is provided -- namely, that since its election in 1996, the Howard Government and its faithful followers in the parliament and the media have pursued a partly-instinctive and partly-conscious policy of systematically silencing significant political dissent.

The politics of homelessness in the Australian print media /

by Zufferey, Carole | The Australian Sociological Association.

Publisher: unpub. 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. Social Causes, Private Lives (2010 : North Ryde, N.S.W.) Bibliography : p. 10-11Summary: The media plays an important role in politicising social problems such as homelessness. This paper argues that political debates and media representations of homelessness frame options available to policy makers and social work practitioners and shape policy and practice responses to homelessness. Positive and compassionate representations of homelessness can influence the development of respectful and inclusive policy and practice approaches to homelessness. However, dominant representations of homelessness in the print media that individualise social problems also reinforce deep-seated community values that maintain unequal power and gender relations and transcend political changes in society.Availability: (1)
