Within a few weeks, Australia will begin trialling our first vaccine passports, following in the footsteps of many other countries where this digital document is already commonly used to gain access to domestic services like hairdressers and restaurants, and international travel. For many people this is the logical next step as we try to find a way to move forward with our lives and 'learn to live with Covid', but for others this is yet another violation of our rights to freedom of choice and movement. The Quicky speaks to an expert in mandatory vaccination policy and a Federal Government Minister to break down how vaccine passports will work in Australia, and explore why people are divided on whether they should exist at all. CREDITS  Host/Producer: Claire Murphy Executive Producer: Siobhán Moran-McFarlane Audio Producer: Ian Camilleri Guests: Dr Katie Attwell - Senior Lecturer in the School of Social Sciences at the University of Western Australia, and an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award Fellow who specialises in mandatory vaccination policy Dan Tehan - Federal Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, member of the Liberal Party, and the Federal Member for Wannon in Victoria This episode of The Quicky uses some grabs from the 2019 HBO documentary, The Inventor: Out For Blood In Silicon Valley, and this TedMed Talk from 2014.

In September-October 2021, SSEAC Stories will be hosting a mini-series of podcasts exploring the role that research plays in understanding and advocating for human rights in Southeast Asia. In the second episode, Dr Thushara Dibley talks with Professor Nick Enfield about how the field of linguistics intersects with human rights. They discuss some of the impacts that major hydro-electric dam projects in Laos have had on local communities, not just in changing day-to-day life, but in decreasing interethnic interactions, thereby eroding multiculturalism and multilingualism. In disrupting local indigenous exchanges, Professor Enfield argues that large development projects risk impeding the transmission of significant cultural knowledge, including traditional knowledge of biodiversity and environmental sustainability. The study of languages thus becomes a tool for understanding a broader set of human rights, from cultural to environmental rights. About Nick Enfield: Nick Enfield is Professor of Linguistics at the University of Sydney and director of the Sydney Social Sciences and Humanities Advanced Research Centre, and the Sydney Centre for Language Research. He is head of a Research Excellence Initiative on The Crisis of Post-Truth Discourse. His research on language, culture, cognition and social life is based on long term field work in mainland Southeast Asia, especially Laos. His recent books include The Languages of Mainland Southeast Asia (Cambridge University Press, 2021) and Mainland Southeast Asian Languages: A Concise Typological Introduction (Cambridge University Press, 2019). Nick has published widely in linguistics, anthropology, and cognitive science venues, and has written for The Guardian, the Times Literary Supplement, the Wall Street Journal, and Science. He is a Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia, the Royal Society of New South Wales, and the Australian Academy of the Humanities.

Accidental drug overdose is currently the leading cause of death in America for people under the age of 50. The term “accidental” means that it is preventable. And prevention comes from determining the potency of a drug. You see the labels on bottles of alcohol, and even legalized THC in some states. Another fact about this being preventable: 95% of people addicted to opioids have a co-occuring mental disorder. But how many of these people are getting treated for their mental health?

"Not only was our healthcare system failing us in its job of keeping us healthy for as little dollar and resource costs as possible, now we know it's also failing in its ability to keep us safe from pandemic." Harvard economists Edward Glaeser and David Cutler join the show for a discussion centered around their new book Survival of the City: Living and Thriving in an Age of Isolation. The two argue that while city life will survive, individual cities face major risks. What happens when offices don't fill back up? How comfortable are companies with employees working from home? What will distinguish between cities that flourish and those that do not? Also addressed: the major inequities in healthcare and our deeply flawed health system, and how in a city, just like the world, our health is all interconnected. Support Talking Beats with Daniel Lelchuk. Edward Glaeser is the Fred and Eleanor Glimp Professor of Economics and the Chairman of the Department of Economics at Harvard University, where he has taught microeconomic theory, and occasionally urban and public economics, since 1992. He has served as Director of the Taubman Center for State and Local Government, and Director of the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston. He has published dozens of papers on cities economic growth, law, and economics. In particular, his work has focused on the determinants of city growth and the role of cities as centers of idea transmission. He received his PhD from the University of Chicago in 1992. David Cutler has developed an impressive record of achievement in both academia and the public sector. He served as Assistant Professor of Economics at Harvard University from 1991 to 1995, was named John L. Loeb Associate Professor of Social Sciences in 1995, and received tenure in 1997.

There have been many downsides to the pandemic, but one of the worst is that it seems to have divided Aussies into a collection of individual states and territories rather than one united nation. The fight over closed domestic borders, and politicians at all levels blaming each other over their handling of Covid-19 has caused what some fear may be an irreparable rift.

In the late nineteenth century, as much of the world adopted some variant of the gold standard, China remained the most populous country still using silver. Yet China had no unified national currency; there was not one monetary standard but many. Silver coins circulated alongside chunks of silver and every transaction became an "encounter of wits." China and the End of Global Silver, 1873–1937 (Cornell UP, 2020) focuses on how officials, policy makers, bankers, merchants, academics, and journalists in China and around the world answered a simple question: how should China change its monetary system? Far from a narrow, technical issue, Chinese monetary reform is a dramatic story full of political revolutions, economic depressions, chance, and contingency. As different governments in China attempted to create a unified monetary standard in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, the United States, England, and Japan tried to shape the direction of Chinese monetary reform for their own benefit.  Austin Dean argues convincingly that the Silver Era in world history ended owing to the interaction of imperial competition in East Asia and the state-building projects of different governments in China. When the Nationalist government of China went off the silver standard in 1935, it marked a key moment not just in Chinese history but in world history. Austin Dean is Assistant Professor of History at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

I am happy to have back on the podcast Dr. Daniel Bar-Tal, Professor Emeritus at the School of Education, Tel Aviv University. Dr. Bar-Tal is a noted psychologist, who since the early eighties has focused on political psychology and the study of the socio-psychological foundations of intractable conflicts and peacebuilding, including reconciliation. In this episode, we discuss the concept of an Israeli-Palestinian confederation, including the current status quo, mitigating the entrenched psychological perspectives among both Israelis and Palestinians, the ongoing occupation and its effects, and what forces or political changes would need to be seen on every side in order to create an environment where peace is possible. Full bio: Dr. Daniel Bar-Tal is Professor Emeritus at the School of Education, Tel Aviv University. Dr. Bar-Tal received his graduate training in social psychology at the University of Pittsburgh, and completed his doctoral thesis in 1974. He previously served as a Director of the Walter Lebach Research Institute for Jewish-Arab Coexistence through Education, Tel Aviv University and as President of the International Society of Political Psychology, and was Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Palestine Israel Journal. He has won numerous awards, including the Alexander George Award of the International Society of Political Psychology, Nevitt Sanford Award of the International Society of Political Psychology, and Morton Deutsch Conflict Resolution Award of the Society for the Study of Peace, Conflict, and Violence. He was awarded the Golestan Fellowship at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences in 2000-2001, and in 2013 received honorary membership in the Polish Society of Social Psychology. Since the early eighties his interest has shifted to political psychology and the study of the socio-psychological foundations of intractable conflicts and peace building, including reconciliation. In the latter area, he studied the evolvement of the socio-psychological infrastructure in times of intractable conflict that consists of shared societal beliefs of ethos of conflict, collective memory, and emotional collective orientations. He also studied socio-psychological barriers to peacemaking and ways to overcome them, and acquisition of the conflict repertoire by children and adolescents. Within this scope of studies he developed with his collaborators theoretical frameworks for concepts like siege mentality, intractable conflict, delegitimization, collective victimhood, socio-psychological infrastructure, culture of conflict, effects of lasting occupation, barriers to peace making, construction and struggle over conflict supporting narratives, acquisition of intergroup psychological repertoire, early development of the ethos of conflict, transitional context, collective identity, and peace education, among many others. He has published a number of books on the subject, and has co-edited a wide variety of volumes, and in addition has published over two hundred articles and chapters in major journals, books and encyclopedias. Through the years he has lectured widely on his work, and worked as Visiting Professor at Vanderbilt University, Brandeis University, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, University of Muenster, University of Maryland College Park, Polish Academy of Science, University of Palermo, and Australian National University. He retired in 2015 and decided to devote his second career to political activism. He founded a peace movement Save Israel-Stop the Occupation with the goal to end the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and establish the Palestinian state.

In this episode, we explore how women pursuing flexible education frame their narratives of self-fulfillment in Chennai, India. My guest is researcher Meenakshi Krishnaraj from the University of Sydney, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Meenakshi's study explores the relationship between women's pursuit of flexible education frames their narratives of self-fulfillment and analyzes the perceived efficacy of flexible education in supporting the roles, aspirations, and capacities of women. The education of women in India has focussed on collective identities, resulting in the marginalization of individual identities, beliefs, and notions of fulfillment. The study acknowledges the diversity of lived experiences and moves away from a homogenous collective representation of ‘women.' Further, education systems often legitimized certain aspirations and values over others, and also acted as instruments for gender regulation. Flexible education on the other hand is said to be learner-centered. Furthermore, the study explores the extent to which flexible education supports individual learners, particularly women, with respect to their idea of self-fulfillment.

Paul Spoonley is a demographer, Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Massey University, and Honorary Research Associate with the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. He says some councils are making the wrong assumptions when drawing up these long term plans - particularly around population.

With support from her book Hyphen, she took us on a journey through the history of the hyphen from antiquity to the present. Along the way, she uncovered the politics of the hyphen and the role it plays in creating identities, revealing the quiet power of a writing convention concept to speak to the travails of hyphenated individuals all over the world. Herself a hyphenated Iranian-American, she weaved in her own experiences of struggling to find a sense of self amidst feelings of betwixt and between, as well as those of three other individuals. Join us for this compelling conversation about the powerful ways that language and identity intertwine.

Halliwell is a specialist in American cultural, intellectual and literary history of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries and in the health humanities.  He is also a professor of American Studies at the University of Leicester's Centre for American Studies and the current head of the School of Arts.

The complex history of democracy and its global origins isn't taught in school. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to self-educate. On today's episode, we speak with David Stasavage, a Professor of Political Science and Dean of Social Sciences at the University of New York. He allows us to dip into his incredible wealth of knowledge around the history of this form of governance, as well as giving us his insights and predictions for its future. You'll hear about the role of technology and geography in the emergence (or non-emergence) of democracy across the globe. We talk about the factors that influence the strength of a city's fiscal position and David suggests an extreme solution to restoring that power: to disallow the issuing of debt. Next, we talk about the growth rates of autonomous cities, how location and craft guild contribute to growth, and David tells us why the effectiveness of political inclusion rests on how a society is organized. We dive into Olson's theory of the stationary versus roving bandit, and discuss exit options through the lens of Carneiro's Circumspection Theory. David weighs in on Herbst's view that redrawing borders can reduce conflict, and gives us his prediction for how democracy will fare with populism and technocracy in mind. We touch on theories by Henry Pierrine and David recommends Wim Blockman's research as a rich resource on cities and representation. Tune in for a thorough look into the history of democracy with the future in mind!   Key Points From This Episode:   •   The topic of David's recently published book, The Decline and Rise of Democracy. •   The global origins of democracy which contradict the idea of it starting in Athens. •   How technology and geography play into the emergence of democracy (or not). •   Why cities and smaller states could accrue long-term debt as early as the 13th century. •   How the strength of the central political unit dictates the strength of a city's fiscal position. •   An extreme solution to restoring a city's fiscal strength: disallow the issuing of debt. •   We discuss the reversal of faster growth rates in autonomous cities after 100 years. •   How location and craft guild influenced the growth of cities throughout history. •   Why the effect of political inclusion depends upon how society itself is organized. •   We discuss Olson's stationary versus roving bandit theory. •   Exit options through the lens of Robert Carneiro's Circumscription Theory. •   David weighs in on Herbst's view that redrawing borders can reduce conflict. •   Why, if you have collective governance first, the possibility for bureaucracy is greater. •   Local elections as a way for autocratic rulers to gather information. •   How David foresees political institutions navigating outdated laws and godlike technology. •   The role of connection and disconnection to the state in decentralization, and local control. •   David's prediction on how democracy will fare with populism and technocracy in mind. •   Why it might be true that government officials can't achieve anything alone. •   We discuss the theory outlined in Henry Pierrine's Early Democracies in the Low Countries. •   Wim Blockman's research as a powerful resource on cities and representation. •   David's book in gestation about the future of democracy.     Links Mentioned in Today's Episode: https://stasavage.com/ (David Stasavage) https://twitter.com/stasavage (David Stasavage on Twitter) https://www.linkedin.com/in/david-stasavage-787b1842/ (David Stasavage on LinkedIn) https://www.amazon.com/Decline-Rise-Democracy-Antiquity-Princeton/dp/0691177465...

Today's episode is about a Buddhist tool for resolving conflict and keeping your relationships healthy. Today's guest, Kaira Jewel Lingo, was an ordained nun of 15 years in Thich Nhat Hanh's Order of Interbeing, and is now a lay Dharma teacher based on Long Island. She graduated from Stanford University with a B.A. and M.A. in Anthropology and Social Sciences. She's edited a few books by Thich Nhat Hanh, including Planting Seeds: Practicing Mindfulness with Children. In this interview, Kaira Jewel talks about: the Beginning Anew practice (and how even skeptics can see the value in it); how Beginning Anew can strengthen relationships and resolve conflicts; the four steps of the practice; and her own experience with the practice, as both a teacher of it and a practitioner of it. If Kaira Jewel's insights on gratitude within the practice intrigue or inspire you, you might like a fantastic meditation we released recently on the Ten Percent Happier app called "Daily Gratitude Booster" by Matthew Hepburn. It's the perfect way to cultivate a regular practice of gratitude, which, like meditation itself, is a skill that you can improve.

Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss the works and life of one of the most popular writers in Europe in C19th, Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin (1804-1876) who wrote under the name George Sand. When she wrote her first novel under that name, she referred to herself as a man. This was in Indiana (1832), which had the main character breaking away from her unhappy marriage. It made an immediate impact as it overturned the social conventions of the time and it drew on her own early marriage to an older man, Casimir Dudevant. Once Sand's identity was widely known, her works became extremely popular in French and in translation, particularly her rural novels, outselling Hugo and Balzac in Britain, perhaps buoyed by an interest in her personal life, as well as by her ideas on the rights and education of women and strength of her writing.
