The impact of COVID-19 on the Brisbane music industry

The pandemic has had a profound impact on the creative industries in Australia. Government decisions around travel, border closures and density restrictions for indoor/outdoor venues have forced business closures and decimated the livelihoods of artists. All areas of the industry have been affected, from venues to recording studios; management and promotions companies; live production services and music retailers.

Financial accountability and political spending after elections

This project aims to improve the transparency and integrity of government spending decisions. During elections, political parties make election promises to spend billions of taxpayer dollars but we rarely question if and how that money is spent. This project aims to map the Queensland government's election commitments to the annual budget and announced projects and create a user friendly spending 'dashboard' that makes it easy for taxpayers to monitor the financial decisions of government.

Chemicals that kill wildlife: an international and comparative study of Australia's approach to regulating the use and production of harmful chemicals

Certain chemicals like atrazine are well known to be very harmful to frogs, and a wide range of other wildlife and invertebrate species. Many countries around the world, except Australia, have banned the use of atrazine because of its harmful effects on important ecosystem markers like frogs.In this project we will first seek to identify chemicals that have been banned by most developed countries but not Australia. We will then identify and assess the regulatory and governance arrangements around atrazine …

A compassionate international law response to natural disasters?

Compassion generally refers to a felt need to alleviate the suffering of the other. It is something that we normally associate with actions taken by individuals and not institutions or nation-states.For an act to be compassionate it also has to be done without a sense of concern for oneself, and institutions usually respond to rational choices rather than being driven by emotionally charged or empathetic ones (although there is a lot of literature in international relations suggesting that nation-states respond …

Dynamics of partisanship and polarisation in online public debate

Polarisation presents an urgent challenge. It intensifies social conflicts, threatens economic prosperity, undermines public trust, and ultimately destabilises societies. Such instability can be exploited by domestic extremists or foreign influence campaigns to weaken sovereign states. Distracted by polarisation at home, nations also lose their influence in the international community. While Australia has been less affected, so far, than other leading democracies, our society is not immune to creeping polarisation, and we must understand the threats we face.This $3.5million, five-year ARC …

Ecoscenography at World Stage Design 2022: creating worlds for climate change performance

Scenography, or performance design, brings together the art of design, performance, architecture, theatrical production, and technologies both established and emerging. In the face of the climate change crisis, new approaches are emerging under the banner of 'ecoscenography', pioneered by Australian researcher Tanja Beer. Ecoscenography combines ecological design and permaculture practices to reconsider how we shape space in theatre, dance, opera, music events, public space design and more.This research project invites you to assist with research engaged in the emerging practice …

Measures of agile trust

In today's highly dynamic, opportunity-rich markets, the rapid manifestation of trust has become a major challenge for both established and new organisations that attempt to introduce new products and services. Previous research focused mainly on the long-term development of trust (e.g., concerning brand reputation), and the nature (and factors) of immediate trust decisions remain under-researched.

What do ancient granitic rocks tell about the formation of Earth's crust

The Earth is a dynamic evolving planet that has continually changed throughout its history. This change is recorded in the different rock types preserved in the continental crust and is paralleled by the evolution of life. Study of Archean granitic terranes (4.0-2.5 billion years ago) provides invaluable information on the early Earth when 50% of the present day volume of continental crust was generated. You will help work out how Earth's earliest crust formed through:potential field workpetrographygeochemical analysis.
