Celebrating (or not) the Centenary of the Russian Revolution - Prof. Sheila Fitzpatrick

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 08:00:00 +0000

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution. How should it be remembered today? Interpretation of the Russian Revolution has always been politically contentious, in the West as in the Soviet Union and its successor states. But the centenary coming only a few decades after the collapse of Communist regimes in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, finds Western scholars at a loss – and in Putin’s Russia is an outright embarrassment. In this talk, Professor Sheila Fitzpatrick will survey past and present interpretative controversies about the Russian Revolution. Sheila Fitzpatrick is one of the world’s foremost scholars in the field of modern Russian history. She was a founding figure in Soviet history. Her more recent work has focused on Soviet social and cultural history in the Stalin period, particularly everyday practices and social identity. She is currently working on projects on Soviet society under Khrushchev, displaced persons in Germany after the Second World War, and the Australian Left. She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Australian Academy of the Humanities, and is a past president of the American Association for Slavic and East European Studies. She is the winner of many prestigious scholarly awards including a Mellon Foundation Distinguished Achievement Award, the Award for Scholarly Distinction from the American Historical Association, the Award for Distinguished Contributions to Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies, from the American Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies, and the Magarey Medal for Biography from the Australian Historical Association. Fitzpatrick is the author of many books, including the award-winning memoir, A Spy in the Archives (Melbourne: Melbourne University Press, and London: I. B. Tauris, 2013) The Russian Revolution. (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1st ed., 1982/3; 2nd revised ed. 1994; 3rd (revised) ed. 2007); On Stalin’s Team: The Years of Living Dangerously in Soviet Politics (Princeton University Press/Melbourne University Press, 2015) (winner of the Prime Minister’s Prize for non-fiction, 2016). Fitzpatrick’s latest book is Mischka’s War. A European Odyssey of the 1940s (Melbourne: Melbourne University Press/London: I. B. Tauris, 2017).

UQCCR Seminar Series: Commercialisation Journey: from Waterloo to Queensland - presented by ...

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 03:00:00 +0000

Overview: Derek Jouppi a co-founder of Suncayr, a Canadian startup company with a flagship UV indicating sticker that helps you know when your sunscreen is no longer protecting you. The three founders of Suncayr met in their nanotechnology engineering program at the University of Waterloo (Canada), and have been in operation for 4 years since. Derek and his team have won prestigious awards like the James Dyson Award International Runner-Up (2014) and HotDesQ (from Advance Queensland) among 46 other research grants (value >$700k) to commercialize and develop the technology. Prior to Suncayr, Derek worked as an engineer at Facebook Inc (Palo Alto), AMD (Toronto), and Broadcom (Richmond). Derek`s looking to pass on his experience in commercializing science - everything from growing out of a school project, to filing IP, making university partnerships, doing research, winning grants, to the tougher lessons about how to build a team and survive on a $0.00 salary for 3 full years.

MFSAS Workshop: Recognising Changes

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 03:30:00 +0000

Purpose To provide participants with an understanding of the varying methods of analysis to calculate differences between groups as well as differences within groups. The focus of this module will be on data associated with repeated measures (such as longitudinal surveys or medical experiments) as well as univariate time-series data (such as police offence data or sales data). This module will demonstrate how to apply different methods of analysis to the same data and how to account for correlation of variance. Learning objectives On completing this module, participants will have an understanding of: 1. the different methods to analyse the same data source 2. the importance of accounting for correlation of variance (or serial correlation) 3. how to test for differences 4. how to visually display repeated measures and time series data 5. how to interpret results from these tests Who should attend, and module pre-requisites This module is designed for people who need to have an understanding of the statistical tests required to analyse data that has a degree of correlation (due to repeated measures). This module will be beneficial for those who need to analyse longitudinal survey data or repeated measures hospital data, as well as time series aggregate data. Participants will need a sound understanding of quantitative data and a strong understanding of regression modelling technique (such as ordinary least squares, or logistic regression). Topics covered Session 1 a) Introduction b) Demonstration of different data where auto-correlation of the data exists. c) Demonstration of different methods to analysis the same data. d) Visually presenting data Session 2 e) Understanding results f) Testing for differences within groups and between groups g) Applying model diagnostics
