Abstract: Reintegration is the only sentencing objective that requires community support in order to be realised. However, we know very little about the extent and nature of support for reintegrative policies. With this gap in mind, the study authors have completed the largest Australian investigation of the types of reintegrative initiatives the community would support and the offender sub-groups they believe such programs should be reserved for. The study also profiles the sub-sections of the community that are most amenable to such initiatives, and identifies the factors that predict positive and negative attitudes to the reintegration of offenders.

Abstract: This study investigates patterns in violence in adolescence for 2 statewide representative samples of youth, one in Washington State and the other in Victoria, Australia. Comparable data collection methods were used to cross-nationally compare patterns of violence, risk factors, and responses to violence (school suspensions and arrests) in 2 policy contexts. Risk factors include early use of alcohol, binge drinking, involvement with antisocial peers, family conflict, poor family management, sensation seeking, and bully victimization. These are modeled as correlates of initial violence and predictors of change in violence over a 3-year period, from ages 12 - 15, for participating youth. Results suggest that patterns and predictors of violence are mostly similar in the 2 states. Initial levels and change over time in violence were associated in both states with more youth school suspensions and police arrests in Grade 9. Some cross-national differences were also shown: Correlations of violence with gender and violence with binge drinking were stronger in Victoria, whereas correlations of violence with early use of alcohol and with antisocial peer involvement were stronger in Washington. Antisocial peer involvement and family conflict were predictors of an increase in violence from Grades 7 - 9 for youth in Victoria only.

Abstract: Whanaungatanga: Culturally-Centred Success
My presentation has a focus on whanaungatanga (establishing relationships) as seen and felt within a study of a group of Maori children successfully engaged and motivated beginner readers. McNatty & Roa (2002) discuss the dangers of accepting definitions and explanations of Maori words that are not culturally rooted (p.91). Whanaungatanga involves value processes that are inter-related and the emphasis changes depending on the context. Value processes linked to this study are: whakarongo (listening and being attentive), titiro (making observations), korero (speaking and questioning), kotahitanga (principles of collective oneness), manaakitanga (reciprocity), tikanga (practices) and wairuatanga (spirituality). This presentation will put forward why the study is culturally centred within Maori kupu (words) and Maori pedagogy. It will also show how whanaungatanga has supported the achievement and success of these Maori children in their reading journey.

Abstract: Oversea Sikh policemen would probably be excellent subjects for the research of global history. They were colonial subjects, but they also were recruited by the British Empire to maintain orders in other colonies. Because of their ambiguous identity, both national history and imperial history cannot interpret their history properly. In national history, sometimes they were blamed as the tools of the imperialism in the oppression of local people, sometimes they were innocent colonial subjects who were cheated by the evil Westerners to bully their non-Western brothers. In imperial history, they were merely passive subjects who were recruited, transported and sent back by the British Empire, while their own intensions, attitudes and feelings are largely overlooked. This study tries to rebuild the story of Sikh policemen by emphasizing the connection and interaction between Singapore and Hong Kong’s Sikh police forces. It is showed that the circulation of knowledge and experience within the Empire plays a crucial role in the recruitment, training and maintaining of the two colonies’ Sikh force.

Abstract: Reality TV and contemporary celebrity culture are both premised on privileged access to the ‘real’ while simultaneously offering heightened awareness of the processes of construction behind that ‘real.’ This project examines the negotiation of the ‘real’ within these frameworks as a site of the ironic yet controlled (re)production of celebrity image. Specifically, it explores how “Victoria Beckham: Coming to America” offers deconstruction the celebrity façade through Reality TV tropes as a means to translate or (re)construct Beckham’s British celebrity to the American celebrity system.
