Abstract: Video accessibility has typically been thought of in terms of video captioning, which provides text versions of a video’s dialogue and sound effects. Over the last thirty years, however, accessibility advocates have increasingly called for making video and film more accessible to audience members with vision disabilities through the use of video descriptions. The Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Act (2010) required the FCC to put rules in place requiring broadcasters provide video descriptions for part of their programming. The current discussion will focus on the history of descriptive narration and accompanying regulations, factors involving in deciding what films and shows will undergo the process, and an examination of current trends.

Abstract: Despite widespread acknowledgement of the need to reduce the mass incarceration of Australia’s First Nations peoples, efforts to date have been tokenistic, ineffective and at times, counter-productive. Even with a clear mandate to reduce the overrepresentation of First Nations peoples a quarter of a century ago, the rate of incarceration of Indigenous Australians has increased 84% over this time to the current rate of 2,253 per 100,000. This is unacceptable by any standards, but especially in contrast to that of non-Indigenous Australians (146 per 100,000) and in the context of mass incarceration in the United States (698 per 100,000). While reducing prisoner numbers is squarely on the US agenda, the over-representation of First Nations peoples in Australian prisons is a “wicked problem” lacking a clear reduction plan. In this paper we identify the multiple causes of the high rates of incarceration of First Nations peoples, including intergenerational disadvantage and disruptions to kinship, culture and communities. We advance a preliminary action plan for a combined policy and research response that addresses youth justice contacts, adult offending, sentencing and imprisonment, and the ongoing “churn” of incarceration.

Abstract: How do foreign public view the rise of China? Drawing on data from East Asia
Barometer (EAB) and the Pew Global Attitudes Project (GAP), this study ?nds
considerable variations in how ordinary people in East Asia as well as other parts of
the world view China. Our analysis of the mass perceptions of China lends strong
supports to an instrumental explanation. Mass perception of China re?ects more
about each country's domestic socioeconomic stresses. Economically less secured individuals tend to hold more negative views about China. More important, this
instrumental perception of China intensi?es when there is a stronger economic tie
between the surveyed countries and China. Although more economically advantaged
people tend to be more positive about China, paradoxically most people who hold
negative view about China are in countries with the strongest economic ties with

Abstract: How can established powers manage the peaceful rise of new great powers? The conventional wisdom in international relations scholarship is that power transitions are intrinsically destabilizing events. Fundamental shifts in the distribution of power— such as the relative size of a state’s military and economic resources—determine the intentions and arming decisions of rising great powers and produces the revisionism that destabilizes the international order during a power transition. In contrast, this paper argues the struggle for recognition is the animating feature of power transitions and that a rising power’s revisionism is contingent on the social interactions of rising and established great powers as they struggle for great power status. Recognition secures a rising power’s social identity as a great power, establishes its legitimate place in the international order and structures the way rising and declining states think about military power. This argument has important implications for debates about the rise of China. In this view, China’s rise—and its burgeoning naval capabilities, in particular—is importantly about securing recognition and establishing its status as a great power on par with the United States. Thus, the peacefulness of China’s rise will depend on the ability of the United States to attend to China’s recognition-claims. The paper concludes by exploring how the United States might navigate a foreign policy that both approaches China as a recognized partner in leading the international order—while also protecting its regional and global interests—and if such recognition is even possible.
