Research was done at an intergroup level, and obtained its theoretical foundation from the Social Identity theory (Tajfel &amp; Turner, 1986), self-categorization theory (Turner, 1985; Turner et al., 1987) and the empathy-altruism model (Batson, 1987, 1991; Batson et al., 1989; Batson &amp; Shaw, 1991) and focused on the influence of identity content and ingroup norms in investigating outgroup helping. Experiments were carried out concerning different instances that could affect outgroup helping and were centred around social identity and identity content, accountability, intragroup power and empathy towards the outgroup. The first two studies focused on the role of particular identities in terms of the Social identity theory (Tajfel &amp; Turner, 1986). In experiment 1 it was found that people regulate their empathy towards beggars by their non-salient religious identity when they are together with others. The presence of others such as friends and partner, who are aware of the participant‘s religious identity, could possibly evoke accountability concerns, which are then reflected in empathy and prosocial behaviour towards a disadvantaged group. In experiment 2 a salient political identity only led to pro-social behavioural preferences and empathy towards beggars for those with left-wing identities; as opposed to those with a right wing preference. Concluding, the content of ideologically-defined identities (religious, political) served to regulate empathy and prosocial behaviour, but the salience of these identities could play a crucial mediating role in certain contexts. The plausible effect of accountability was further investigated in experiments 3 and 3a. Unfortunately no conclusive results were found. Experiments 4 and 5 investigated the role of intragroup power on outgroup helping. Results showed that people with high intragroup power either affect the prosocial behaviour of people that are less certain of their political preference compared to people who are certain of their political preference, possibly due to processes in accordance with the social comparison theory (Festinger, 1954) and intragroup differentiation (experiment 4), or were found to be less prosocial towards an outgroup (experiment 5) than people with lower intragroup power. Finally in experiment 6 and 7, research was directed towards intergroup awareness and empathy. Experiment 6 demonstrated that an outgroup will be perceived with more empathy and prosocial behaviour when awareness of the outgroup is high than when awareness of the outgroup is low. In experiment 7, people high in empathy towards a disadvantaged outgroup were more willing to allocate money to the outgroup than people lower in empathy. Overall, the results of the experiments in the subsequent chapters led to believe that ingroup identity and content, and ingroup norms are feasible with regard to helping a certain disadvantaged outgroup. These findings fit with the theories of social identity and self categorization, given that feeling and behaving according to ingroup norms is the objective, and suggesting that people each have a variety of different identities, which become activated in different social contexts. Furthermore inducing empathy towards an outgroup seemed to be an useful tool to promote helping behaviour towards an outgroup.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2394/1/Jansen%2C_Bianca.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>HT</dc:subject><dc:subject>H1</dc:subject><dc:subject>HM</dc:subject><dc:title>What does it take to help an outgroup?</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Jansen, Bianca G M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-20</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Based on a twelvemonth ethnographic fieldwork conducted in 2007 among different groups of women (women MPs, women’s rights activists, female University Students) mostly based in Kabul, I study women’s responses to various social anxieties that have emerged as a consequence of this new visibility. I argue that while the current ‘reconstruction’ project has opened new possibilities for women and created new imaginaries pertaining to their role in society, the ideological framework (i.e liberal notions of equality and human rights etc.) on which it is grounded together with the strong military presence of foreign troops, have fuelled tensions at different levels of the Afghan society. Pressurized by their community to remain faithful to their ‘culture’, ‘religion’ and ‘tradition’ on one hand, and encouraged to access the public and become ‘visible’ by global forces on the other hand, women have been left with little choice but to adapt and find alternative ways to preserve a sense of autonomy. I describe these tactics as ‘oppositional practices of everyday life’ (De Certeau 1984), i.e complex practices of dissimulation which under the necessary appearance of compliance and conformity allow women to reconfigure social norms and create new spaces for themselves. More generally, this work engages with issues such as nationalism, Islam, gender, veiling, modernity, agency, rights and the public sphere.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2396/1/Billaud%2C_Julie.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>HN</dc:subject><dc:subject>K1</dc:subject><dc:title>Malalay's sisters: women's public visibility in 'post war/reconstruction' Afghanistan</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Billaud, Julie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-22</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Many of these studies are admirable in the way that they demonstrate the challenges confronting religion in this period of dynamic social, cultural, economic, political, and scientific change and growth. Similarly, this study will examine the critical intersections between nineteenth-century Christianity and literature. However, this project is unique by virtue of the methodology used in order to access both the expressed and latent perspectives on Victorian faith at play within a given text. I propose that that a spatial, place-based reading has heretofore been largely ignored in critical explorations of nineteenth-century faith and literature. While, literary criticism utilising concepts related to spatiality, geography, topography, and place have increased within recent decades, these critical works are largely silent on the issue of the narrative representations of “place” and the expression and understanding of Victorian Christianity. This project suggests a model for just such a reading of nineteenth-century texts. More specifically, this thesis proposes that by reading for sacred place in the Victorian novel one is able to explore the issue of Christianity and literature from a unique and neglected point of narrative and critical reference. Using Charles Dickens’s Bleak House and Thomas Hardy’s Jude the Obscure as primary texts, this study demonstrates that a careful exploration of sacred place within a particular narrative reflects an author’s and, more broadly, a culture’s perceptions of a faith. Reading Victorian religion from the vantage point of place acknowledges that place is itself an inescapable and fundamental medium through which individuals and cultures mediate the most mundane and the most exhilarating of their personal and collective experiences and beliefs. Similarly, faith, especially in nineteenth-century England, is a dominant and pervasive metaphysical ideology that is connected to and possesses repercussions for virtually all aspects of individual and social life. A critical reading that unites place and faith – these two fundamental paradigms of human experience and understanding – will inevitably provide fertile soil for a productive reading of the texts under consideration.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2397/1/Adams%2C_Aaron.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>PR</dc:subject><dc:title>Victorian representations and transformations: sacred place in Charles Dickens's Bleak House and Thomas Hardy's Jude the Obscure</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Adams, Aaron</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-22</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

These narratives are particularly visible in the chemical weapon prevention regime, which must accommodate changes in science and technology to ensure that they do not result in the application of new utilities for toxic chemicals as weapons. The dissertation investigates the function of technical experts, and the perceptions of their role, in the procedures of the chemical weapon prevention regime that address technical change. It explores expert involvement in three elements of the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC): its negotiation; the Scientific Advisory Board; and in national policy formulation. Ethnography – from an extended placement within the Convention’s monitoring body, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) – as well as interviews and documentary sources provide the methodological basis for the research. The dissertation finds that science is often made political within the international policy setting, and shows how science is employed to support political aims whether it is in accelerating or slowing policy formulation, or in deflecting the policy agenda. It argues that whilst the role of experts and their capacity to influence policy vary with the forums in which they are placed, their effectiveness depends also upon other factors, including institutional support. The dissertation also holds that national approaches to expert advice are reflected in state relationships with experts advising at the international level. The research supports much of the Science and Technology Studies (STS) literature on experts in national settings and has substantial implications for a concept popular in International Relations (IR) literature, namely, ‘epistemic communities’. A case for reframing ‘epistemic communities’ is developed which incorporates notions drawn from STS, such as the important role of ‘boundary organisations’. These are applied to the CWC, and policy recommendations for the OPCW and its member states are presented.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2398/1/Smallwood%2C_Katie.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>TP</dc:subject><dc:subject>U1</dc:subject><dc:title>Truth, science and chemical weapons: expert advice and the impact of technical change on the Chemical Weapons Convention</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Smallwood, Katie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Part I, “Locating Representation”, argues that contemporary debates that privilege the creation of new democratic spaces as a response to the shortcomings of representative democracy ignore the importance of these spaces’ own issues of representation. The section goes on to outline the context for the research (which was conducted at the national level and in two sites in the Amazon region), describing the process of action research and multi-sited ethnography. The main body of the thesis makes the case for developing a situated understanding of three dimensions of representation: the representation of issues for political debate and policy deliberation; the representation of different social groups in relation to the state; and the representation of the process of democratic engagement itself. Part II, “Representing Health” examines the contrasting understandings of health expressed by two groups of policymakers and bureaucrats – those managing Brazil’s national health system, the SUS, and those responsible for the Indigenous Health Subsystem of the SUS – and by shamanic practitioners and other indigenous health experts. Part III, “Representing People” examines the discourses and mediation roles of indigenous representatives operating in new democratic spaces, and the contrasting representation strategies of two regional indigenous movement organisations who took on management of outsourced services within the Indigenous Health Subsystem. Part IV, “Representing Democracy”, examines three cases of indigenous representatives’ engagement with the state through new democratic spaces in the health sector, and concludes by analysing the potential for new approaches to representation to contribute both to the political inclusion of marginalised minorities and to the broader reinvigoration of democracy.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2399/1/Shankland%2C_Alexander_John_Ludovic.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>RA0421</dc:subject><dc:subject>RA</dc:subject><dc:title>Sparking for the people: representation and health policy in the Brazilian Amazon</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Shankland, Alexander John Ludovic</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-26</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Ondaatje's two films, Sons of Captain Poetry and The Clinton Special, as well as Anthony Minghella’s film adaptation of The English Patient, are also examined. My critical approach is eclectic and driven by the demands of individual texts, focusing on some of the ways in which photography and film affect and help define the formal and thematic components of the prose works. My approach addresses photographic perspective and reader response with specific reference to the ontological nature of photographic stillness, as well as various components of filmic writing and the challenges of prose to screen transfer in cinematic adaptation. This study reveals how an exploration of the photographic and filmic aspects of the texts provides new insights into the way Ondaatje’s work promotes indeterminacy of meaning and a blurring of the boundaries between genres.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2401/1/Williams%2C_Sarah.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>TR</dc:subject><dc:subject>PR</dc:subject><dc:title>Depth of field: aspects of photography and film in the selected work of Michael Ondaatje</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Williams, Sarah</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Therefore, it investigates how innovation systems change over time and how they were influenced by technology transfer activities in the materials industry in Turkey between 1967 and 2001. As a contribution to the theory, the concept of technological capability is used as a bridge from the notion of technology transfer to that of the innovation system. Innovation system studies tend to rely on R&amp;D statistics via innovation surveys for empirical analyses, whereas these could well be defined by qualitative data collected on technological capabilities through interviews. This thesis follows the latter route within an analytical framework that is designed for a firm-centred analysis. The qualitative data obtained from the interviews were transformed into categorical quantitative data to be used in multinomial logistic regression and linear regression analyses. This thesis shows firstly that firm-level capabilities were increasing over time during the period from 1967 to 2001 in the materials industry in Turkey. They were also increasing over time with the rising level of technological capabilities in the firms and the firms’ involvement in both collaborative relationships and in-house activities. Secondly, firmlevel capabilities shape the way the interactions in the innovation system change. As their level of technological capabilities deepen, firm interactions increase and shift to a moderate degree in plausible directions towards domestic agents, which are predominantly universities and research institutes.

Expression profiling using high-throughput microarrays has recently been used to identify changes in gene expression that may be associated with alcohol dependence. To clarify the mechanisms and biology underlying alcohol dependence, bioinformatics, behavioural and genetics methodologies were employed to analyse obtained raw microarray data set that was previously generated from Drosophila exposed to an acute dose of ethanol. Classical linear statistical modeling coupled with clustering and functional enrichment analyses were implemented to evaluate whole-head time series microarray data from ethanol-treated and control samples, and implicated many genes or pathways affected by acute ethanol treatment in Drosophila head including those involved in stress signaling, inter and intra cellular signaling, ubiquitinmediated signaling, metabolic switches, and possible transcriptional regulatory components. Further analysis identified interaction networks and patterns of transcriptional regulation within the set of identified genes. Seven of these genes, ana, Axin, hiw, hop, hsp26, hsp83, and mbf1, were verified and linked with novel roles in ethanol behavioural responses using functional tests. Additional work on two of these genes namely, hiw and hsp26 also revealed a role for glia, mushroom bodies and ellipsoid body neurons as important regulators of acute ethanol response in Drosophila. Finally, these studies have demonstrated that microarray analysis is an efficient method for identifying candidate genes and pathways that may be fundamental to human alcohol dependence or abuse.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2403/1/Awofala%2C_Awoyemi.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QL</dc:subject><dc:title>Gene regulation in Drosophila melanogaster in response to an acute dose of ethanol</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Awofala, Awoyemi Abayomi</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

These sensors have been applied to a range of applications, including electrophysiology, non destructive testing of composite materials and novel nuclear magnetic resonance NMR probes. Some of these measurements can be made in a strongly coupled (≥100pF) mode, where the coupling capacitance is reasonably large and well dened, and ambient noise is therefore less problematic. However for many applications, there exists a requirement for this coupling to be much weaker. This weak and poorly dened coupling creates substantial problems with ambient noise often causing sensors to saturate and become unusable. In the past, therefore, these measurements have all been made inside electrically screened rooms and enclosures. The work discussed in this thesis explores the possibility of operating these sensors outside of electrically screened environments. A number of techniques for resilience against noise are explored and experiments to fully analyse and characterise the performance of the sensors are discussed. As a result of this work, further results are then shown for a number of experiments carried out in a busy lab environment, in the presence of noise sources, and with little or minimal screening used. In this case, data is shown for the collection of remote cardiac and respiratory data, imaging of the spatial distribution of charge on insulating materials, detecting electric eld disturbances for movement sensing and early results for a microscopic XY scanning application.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2407/1/Beardsmore-Rust%2C_Sam.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>TK</dc:subject><dc:title>Remote applications of electric potential sensors in electrically unshielded environments</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Beardsmore-Rust, Sam Thomas</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-22</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

We aimed to describe how potentially infectious diarrhoea is managed in care homes, and to explore related infection control and human waste management practices. Methods: A questionnaire was sent to all care homes in Sussex, asking about management of diarrhoea and related infection control practices. Results: Response rate was 41%. Residents with diarrhoea were reported to be isolated promptly in 36% of homes, and 78.2% of homes reported always wearing appropriate personal protective equipment. Most homes waited over 24 h before sending stool samples for testing. Human waste was disposed of by automated sluice in only 26% of care homes. Bedpans were washed in residents’ sinks in 20.7% of residential homes, and in communal baths in 9.6%. Conclusion: This study shows that most care homes are not fully compliant with current infection prevention and control guidance, and that some unacceptable practices are occurring. In order to reduce potential for transmission of CDI and other diarrhoeal infection in care homes, infection prevention and control practices must be improved, with early diagnosis and control.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2412/1/How_is_diarrhoea_managed_in_UK_care_homes.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Oxford University Press</dc:publisher><dc:source>1741-3842</dc:source><dc:title>How is diarrhoea managed in UK care homes?

Though South Asians in the UK report low levels of sexual ill health, few data exist regarding their use of genitourinary medicine (GUM) services. Objectives: To describe reasons for attendance at GUM clinics among individuals of South Asian origin relative to patients of other ethnicities. Methods: 4600 new attendees (5% South Asian; n=226) at seven sociodemographically and geographically contrasting GUM clinics across England completed a questionnaire between October 2004 and March 2005, which were linked to routine clinical data. Results: South Asians were more likely than other groups to be signposted to the GUM clinic by another health service-for example, in women 14% versus 8% respectively (p=0.005) reported doing so from a family planning clinic. These women also reported that they would be less likely to go to the clinic if their symptoms resolved spontaneously compared with other women (51% vs 31%, p=0.024). However, relative to other clinic attendees, no differences in the proportions of South Asians who had acute STI(s) diagnosed at clinic were noted. Furthermore, South Asian men were more likely to report as their reason for attendance that they wanted an HIV test (23.4% vs 14.8%, p=0.005). Conclusion: Despite having similar STI care needs to attendees from other ethnic groups, South Asians, especially women, may be reluctant to seek care from GUM clinics, especially if their symptoms resolve. Sexual health services need to develop locally-delivered and culturally-appropriate initiatives to improve care pathways.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2413/1/How_and_why_do_South_Asians_attend_GUM_clinics.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>BMJ Publishing Group</dc:publisher><dc:source>1472-3263</dc:source><dc:title>How and why do South Asians attend GUM clinics?

It proceeds in three main chapters, each addressing a specific research question. The first chapter focuses on the process of agricultural transformation in the state of Andhra Pradesh. In the early stages of economic development, all countries undergo a process of transformation of their production and employment structure. As a result, agricultural output as a share of total GDP decreases, as does rural employment as a share of total employment. Over the last 50 years, the share of agriculture in total output has considerably declined in Andhra Pradesh. However, the agricultural sector continues to employ the great majority of the labour force. The theoretical section of this chapter shows how structural change is affected by the characteristics of food demand and by income inequality. The empirical analysis, using novel semiparametric methods, estimates food Engel curves and food elasticities, which are used to simulate the effects on changes in income distribution on the composition of demand. The second chapter analyses the stabilising effect of irrigation on household expenditure. The expansion of irrigation infrastructure, together with the introduction of hybrid seeds and chemical fertilisers, was the most important technological advancement in Indian agriculture of the last 50 years. The positive impact of irrigation on income of rural households has been extensively documented, but its stabilising effect has been largely neglected. The first part of the chapter builds a theoretical model that establishes the causal links between access to irrigation, income stability, and consumption smoothing over the seasonal cycle. The empirical analysis assesses the stabilising impact of irrigation on expenditure using modern impact evaluation techniques. The findings indicate that consumption patterns of households with access to irrigation are more stable over the seasonal cycle and over the years. The third chapter studies the effect of income uncertainty on educational choices made by the rural poor. It investigates the demand side of education in order to understand why a large number of rural children do not enrol or complete primary education. The theoretical part of the chapter presents an inter-temporal consumption model that shows how the expectation of income variability negatively affects household expenditure on education. The empirical analysis uses a duration model with time covariates in order to estimate the determinants of child progress in school, and provides evidence that income variability negatively affects investments in education.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2420/1/Massett%2C_Edoardo.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>HC</dc:subject><dc:subject>HN</dc:subject><dc:title>Food demand, uncertainty and investments in human capital: three essays on rural Andhra Pradesh, India</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Masset, Edoardo</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-08</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

In budding yeast, the SC consists of two parallel axes that become connected by the central element protein, Zip1 that extends along the chromosome axes (Sym, Engebrecht et al. 1993). Extension of the SC is coordinated to crossover formation by a group of proteins known as the ‘ZMM’s (Zip1, Zip2, Zip3, Zip4, Msh4, Msh5 and Mer3) (Borner, Kleckner et al. 2004). Work outlined here demonstrates a role for the mismatch repair paralogue, Msh4 in preventing SC extension from being de-coupled from crossover formation. Furthermore, increased temperature serves as a positive effector for this decoupling. These findings suggest that SC extension is highly regulated to ensure that it is coupled with crossing over. As well as its role in crossover formation (Storlazzi, Xu et al. 1996), the work outlined here demonstrates an independent role for Zip1 in promoting the segregation of non-exchange chromosome pairs (NECs). Zip1 pairs the centromeres of NECs in pachytene through to metaphase I, where it aids their segregation at the first meiotic division. The localisation and function of Zip1 at the centromeres of non-exchange chromosomes depends on Zip3 and Zip2, respectively. Zip1 is observed at the centromeres of all chromosomes following SC disassembly through to the first meiotic division, where it promotes the segregation of exchange pairs also. A model is suggested whereby Zip1 promotes the segregation of both non-exchange and exchange chromosome pairs by tethering homologous centromeres throughout meiotic prophase. Finally, a parallel pathway for NEC segregation is also described that depends upon the spindle checkpoint component, Mad3. When both ZIP1 and MAD3 are deleted, NECs segregate at random.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2421/1/Newnham%2C_Louise_Joanna.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QD</dc:subject><dc:title>Regulation and function of the Synaptonemal Complex during meiosis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Newnham, Louise Joanna</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-07-08</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The many functions of this remodellor are likely to be mediated by different subunits of the complex. Interestingly, strains harbouring a deletion of the IES6 subunit are hypersensitive to hydroxyurea and fail to stabilise stalled replication forks, phenocopying strains lacking the catalytic subunit, INO80, indicating a role for Ies6 within the complex’s response to DNA damage. Although largely uncharacterised, Ies6 contains a YL1 domain, which is a putative DNA binding domain. In vitro DNA binding gel shift assays with recombinant Ies6 showed that this protein does possess DNA binding activity. Recombinant Ies6 bound both Holliday Junction and Y-fork DNA, as well as linear duplex DNA, displaying a small but reproducible preference for the two branch-structured DNAs. Recombinant Ies6 containing mutations in the protein’s C-terminal YL1 domain were generated and a quadruple mutant, ies6-T119A/K122A/S127A/T129A, exhibited significantly reduced DNA binding activity compared to the wild-type protein. The importance of the DNA binding activity was investigated in vivo, and, in contrast to the wild-type strain, the DNA binding mutant of IES6 failed to complement the deletion strain’s HU-hypersensitivity. Interestingly, overexpression of Top3 or Cdk1, but not Top2 or Clb2 also rescued the ies6 deletion strain’s HU-hypersensitivity to near wild-type levels. Further investigation revealed that Ies6 is also required for the maintenance of correct cellular ploidy, as in the absence of IES6, cellular ploidy is seen to increase prior to a drift towards unregulated ploidy and aneuploidy, which are hallmarks of cancer. Notably, the protein’s ability to bind DNA correlated with its ability to maintain cellular ploidy. We therefore propose that the Ino80 chromatin remodelling complex Ies6 subunit plays an important role in the maintenance of genomic stability.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2422/1/Fenwick%2C_Georgina.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QD</dc:subject><dc:title>The role of the Ino80 chromatin remodelling complex subunit les6 in maintaining genome stability</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Fenwick, Georgina</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-07-13</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

We present crystal structures of the primase/polymerisation domain (PolDom) of Mycobacterium tuberculosis LigD, alone and complexed with nucleotides. The PolDom structure combines the general fold of the archaeo-eukaryotic primase (AEP) superfamily with additional loops and domains that together form a deep cleft on the surface, likely used for DNA binding. Enzymatic analysis indicates that the PolDom of LigD, even in the absence of accessory domains and Ku proteins, has the potential to recognise DNA end-joining intermediates. Strikingly, one of the main signals for the specific and efficient binding of PolDom to DNA is the presence of a 5'-phosphate group, located at the single/double-stranded junction at both gapped and 3'-protruding DNA molecules. Although structurally unrelated, Pol lambda and Pol mu, the two eukaryotic DNA polymerases involved in NHEJ, are endowed with a similar capacity to bind a 5'-phosphate group. Other properties that are beneficial for NHEJ, such as the ability to generate template distortions and realignments of the primer, displayed by Pol lambda and Pol mu, are shared by the PolDom of bacterial LigD. In addition, PolDom can perform non-mutagenic translesion synthesis on termini containing modified bases. Significantly, ribonucleotide insertion appears to be a recurrent theme associated with NHEJ, maximised in this case by the deployment of a dedicated primase, although its in vivo relevance is unknown.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/744/1/Structure_and_Function_of_a_Mycobacterial_NHEJ_DNA_repair_polymerase.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Elsevier</dc:publisher><dc:source>0022-2836</dc:source><dc:subject>QD</dc:subject><dc:subject>QH301</dc:subject><dc:title>Structure and Function of a Mycobacterial NHEJ DNA Repair Polymerase</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Pitcher, R S</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Brissett, N</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Picher, A J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Andrade, P</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Juarez, R</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Thompson, D</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Fox, G C</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Blanco, L</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Doherty, A J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-02</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jmb.2006.10.046</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

More recently, p53 has also been shown to be Nedd8-modified. Nedd8 attachment occurs in a manner similar to that observed for other ubiquitin-like modifiers. In the present study, we report on the characterization of Nep1, a deneddylating enzyme in fission yeast (Schizosaccharomyces pombe). Unlike loss of ned8, deletion of the nep1 gene is not lethal, although nep1.d cells are heterogeneous in length, suggesting a defect in cell-cycle progression. Viability of nep1.d cells is dependent on a functional spindle checkpoint but not on the DNA integrity checkpoint. Deletion of a related gene (nep2), either alone or in combination with nep1.d, also has little effect on cell viability. We show that Nep1 can deneddylate the Pcu1, Pcu3 and Pcu4 cullins in vitro and that its activity is sensitive to N-ethylmaleimide, consistent with the idea that it is a member of the cysteine protease family. nep1.d cells accumulate Nedd8-modified proteins, although these do not correspond to modified forms of the cullins, suggesting that, although Nep1 can deneddylate cullins in vitro, this is not its main function in vivo. Nep1 can be co-precipitated with the signalosome subunit Csn5. Nep1 itself is present in a high-molecular-mass complex, but the presence of this complex is not dependent on the production of intact signalosomes. Our results suggest that, in vivo, Nep1 may be responsible for deneddylating proteins other than cullins.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Portland Press</dc:publisher><dc:source>0264-6021</dc:source><dc:title>Nep1, a Schizosaccharomyces pombe deneddylating enzyme</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Zhou, Lihong</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Watts, Felicity</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1042/BJ20041991</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Rad18 (Smc6) is a member of the structural maintenance of chromosomes (SMC) family and, together with its SMC partner Spr18 (Smc5), forms the core of a high-molecular-weight complex. We show here that both S. pombe and human Smc5 and -6 interact through their hinge domains and that four independent temperature-sensitive mutants of Rad18 (Smc6) are all mutated at the same glycine residue in the hinge region. This mutation abolishes the interactions between the hinge regions of Rad18 (Smc6) and Spr18 (Smc5), as does mutation of a conserved glycine in the hinge region of Spr18 (Smc5). We purified the Smc5-6 complex from S. pombe and identified four non-SMC components, Nse1, Nse2, Nse3, and Rad62. Nse3 is a novel protein which is related to the mammalian MAGE protein family, many members of which are specifically expressed in cancer tissue. In initial steps to understand the architecture of the complex, we identified two subcomplexes containing Rad18-Spr18-Nse2 and Nse1-Nse3-Rad62.

Unlike the case with ubiquitination, where ligases are required, SUMO conjugators are sufficient for substrate recognition and conjugation of SUMO onto target proteins, at least in vitro. Thus SUMO conjugators are likely to be important regulators of sumoylation. We report here on the characterisation of two hus5 alleles. Although hus5.17 and hus5.62 respond in a similar manner to UV and ionising radiation, they have different responses to the DNA synthesis inhibitor, hydroxyurea (HU). In addition, SUMO (Pmt3) is mis-localised in hus5.17 but not in hus5.62 mutant cells. The mutations in hus5.62 and hus5.17 map to A129 and to the 5' splice site of intron 2 respectively. We have characterised the Hus5.62 protein and shown in vitro, that it still interacts with SUMO and at least one protein, Rad22, which is a SUMO-modified target. The Hus5.62 protein is also capable of forming a thioester link with SUMO, but it does not function in sumoylation assays, either in the modification of Rad22 or in SUMO chain formation. When over-expressed in wild type S. pombe cells, the Hus5.62 protein has a dominant negative effect on sumoylation.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Portland Press</dc:publisher><dc:source>0264-6021</dc:source><dc:title>Characterisation of SUMO conjugating enzyme mutants in Schizosaccharomyces pombe identifies a dominant negative allele which severely reduces SUMO conjugation</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Ho, J C</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Watts, Felicity</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1042/BJ20021645</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Recombinant S. pombe Ulp1 has de-sumoylating activity; it is involved in the processing of Pmt3 (S. pombe SUMO) and can, to a limited extent, remove Pmt3 from modified targets in S. pombe cell extracts. ulp1 is not essential for cell viability, but cells lacking the gene display severe cell and nuclear abnormalities. ulp1-null (ulp1.d) cells are sensitive to ultraviolet radiation in a manner similar to rad31.d and hus5.62, which have mutations in one subunit of the activator and the conjugator for the ubiquitin-like protein SUMO respectively. However ulp1.d cells are less sensitive to ionising radiation and hydroxyurea (HU) than are rad31.d and hus5.62. ulp1-null cells are defective in processing precursor Pmt3 and display reduced levels of Pmt3 conjugates compared with wild-type cells. The slow growth phenotype of ulp1 null cells is not substantially rescued by over-expression of the mature form of Pmt3 (Pmt3-GG), suggesting that the de-conjugating activity of Ulp1 is required for normal cell cycle progression. During the S and G2 phases of the cell cycle the Ulp1 protein is localised to the nuclear periphery. However, during mitosis the pattern of staining alters, and during anaphase, Ulp1 is observed within the nucleus. Ulp1 localisation at the nuclear periphery is generally re-established by the time of septation (S phase).</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Company of Biologists</dc:publisher><dc:source>0021-9533</dc:source><dc:title>Cell-cycle-dependent localisation of Ulp1, a Schizosaccharomyces pombe Pmt3 (SUMO)-specific protease</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Taylor, Deborah</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ho, Jenny</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Oliver, Alejandro</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Watts, Felicity</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2002</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Sequence analysis has suggested that rad31 and hus5 encode components of the Pmt3 (SUMO) modification process in S.pombe. We show here that the rad31 null and hus5.62 mutants display reduced levels of Pmt3 modification. We have initiated a search for proteins required for the DNA damage response, which may be modified by Pmt3 and have identified Rad22, the fission yeast homologue of the recombination protein Rad52. Purification of myc + His-tagged Rad22 protein from cells expressing HA-tagged Pmt3 identifies an 83 kDa species which cross-reacts with anti-HA antisera. We show here that Rad22 interacts with Rhp51 and Rpa70 (the fission yeast homologues of Rad51 and the large subunit of RPA, respectively), but that neither of these proteins appears to be responsible for the 83 kDa species. The 83 kDa species is observed when extracts are prepared under both native and denaturing conditions, and is also observed when myc + His-tagged Rad22 and Pmt3 are expressed at wild type levels, suggesting that Rad22 is modified by Pmt3 in vivo. We have established an S.pombe in vitro Pmt3 modification system and have shown that Rad22 and Rhp51 are modified in vitro, but that Rpa70 is not.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/1075/1/Nucl._Acids_Res.-2001-Ho-4179-86.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Oxford Journals</dc:publisher><dc:source>1362-4962</dc:source><dc:subject>QM</dc:subject><dc:title>SUMO modification of Rad22, the Schizosaccharomyces pombe homologue of the recombination protein Rad52</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Ho, J C</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Warr, N J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Shimizu, H</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Watts, Felicity</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2001-10</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The fast-paced changes wrought by electrification, from the microphone via the analogue synthesiser to the laptop computer, have led to a wide diversity of new musical styles and techniques. Electronic music has grown to a broad field of investigation, taking in historical movements like musique concrète and elecktronische musik, and contemporary trends such as electronic dance music. A fascinating array of composers and inventors have contributed to a diverse set of technologies, practices and music. This book brings together some novel threads through this scene, from the viewpoint of researchers at the forefront of the sonic explorations empowered by electronic technology. The chapters provide accessible and insightful overviews of core topic areas and uncover some hitherto less publicised corners of worldwide movements. Recent areas of intense activity such as audiovisuals, live electronic music, interactivity and network music are actively promoted.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Cambridge University Press</dc:publisher><dc:source>9780521868617</dc:source><dc:subject>M1</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA75</dc:subject><dc:title>The Cambridge companion to electronic music</dc:title><rioxxterms:contributor>Collins, Nick</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:contributor>d'Escrivan, Julio</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Book</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

This paper argues that user-led innovation is a composite phenomenon, and puts forward a typology which distinguishes between user-led changes to ideas, products, services, processes and systems. It situates this typology within an illustrative device called the Democratic Innovation Space, which can be used to differentiate between different kinds of user-led activities, and highlight the means through which engagement with scientific, firm, policy and lay users is supported. It is suggested that this approach may be used to gain a greater understanding of democratic innovation as a process (von Hippel 2005) and system (Gristock 2001). New perspectives on lead users, absorptive capacity, collective innovation settings, the linear model of user-led innovation (Baldwin et al 2006) and open systems of mediation as participative architectures are introduced. Application of the typology and illustrative device is demonstrated with the help of a case study of user involvement with products and service development associated with the global company Anything Left-Handed (see also Gristock 2001b).</dc:description><dc:format>application/msword</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/1741/1/A_typology_of_user-led_activities_24_Jan_2008.doc</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>CENTRIM Working Paper</dc:publisher><dc:subject>T1</dc:subject><dc:subject>HD</dc:subject><dc:subject>TA</dc:subject><dc:subject>DA</dc:subject><dc:subject>HM</dc:subject><dc:title>A Typology of User-Led Innovation: The case of 'Anything Left-Handed', the world's first real and virtual shop for left-handed goods</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Gristock, Jennifer</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Monograph</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

In this context it is argued that epistemic communities, by being an integral part of the knowledge/power equation, and by having an authoritative claim on knowledge, exercise decisive power in the ‘‘interaction game’’ of the construction of (world) politics. In the first two sections of the article the concepts of reality and epistemic communities are defined. In the third section a two-level model of epistemic communities’ action is developed, aiming at illustrating their role in the construction of world politics. The last section addresses the issue of the relationship between the epistemic and the political.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/1778/1/epistemic_communities-antoniades.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Taylor &amp; Francis</dc:publisher><dc:source>1360-0826</dc:source><dc:subject>JZ</dc:subject><dc:subject>JA</dc:subject><dc:subject>HM</dc:subject><dc:title>Epistemic Communities, Epistemes and the Construction of (World) Politics</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Antoniades, Andreas</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/0953732032000053980</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

It examines the experiences of lone parents studying toward Higher education (HE) qualifications at UK Higher education institutions (HEIs). The paper begins with explanation of the research, including timescale, methodology, limitations, progress and preliminary findings. The longitudinal nature of the research yielded a large volume of rich data, providing insight across diverse themes. The paper utilises segments of participant responses to demonstrate central conference themes. In addressing the HE access routes, processes and experiences of this group of adult learners, data presented focuses on how these testimonies illuminate the uncertainties and complexities of modern life, including the often non-linear nature of learning careers and impact of adult learning upon self-identity. As with existing research (Edwards 1993: 33, Wisker 1996:4, Arksey 1994), ‘balancing’ and ‘juggling’ of multiple identities and fragmented lives in modern life emerge as central themes. Testimonies affirm uncertainty, risk and individualisation of life in late modernity. Biographic data demonstrates the impact of factors including institutional cultures, class, gender, ethnicity, age and disability in determining learning careers, identities, individualisation and risk.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/1824/2/Tamsin_Hinton-Smith_ESREA_paper_final.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Frankfurt am Main ; New York : Peter Lang</dc:publisher><dc:source>Learning to Change?: The Role of Identity and Learning Careers in Adult Education</dc:source><dc:subject>LC5201</dc:subject><dc:title>Lone parents as HE students: a qualitative email study</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Hinton-Smith, Tamsin</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:contributor>Merrill, Barbara</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:type>Book chapter</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

While the role of SUMOylation is beginning to be elucidated, it is clear that understanding the mechanisms that regulate the process is likely to be important. Control of the levels of SUMOylation is brought about through a balance of conjugating and deconjugating activities, i.e. of SUMO (small ubiquitin-related modifier) conjugators and ligases versus SUMO proteases. Although conjugation of SUMO to proteins can occur in the absence of a SUMO ligase, it is apparent that SUMO ligases facilitate the SUMOylation of specific subsets of proteins. Two SUMO ligases in Schizosaccharomyces pombe, Pli1 and Nse2, have been identified, both of which have roles in genome stability. We report here on a comparison between the properties of the two proteins and discuss potential roles for the proteins.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2052/1/0351379.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Portland Press</dc:publisher><dc:source>0300-5127</dc:source><dc:title>The role of Schizosaccharomyces pombe SUMO ligases in genome stability</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Watts, Felicity</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Skilton, Andrew</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ho, J C</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Boyd, Lara Katrina</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Trickey, M A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Gardner, Lisa</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ogi, Francois-Xavier</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1042/BST0351379</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Like human 53BP1 and Saccharomyces cerevisiae Rad9 it contains Tudor(2) and BRCT(2) domains. Crb2-Tudor(2) domain interacts with methylated H4K20 and is required for recruitment to DNA dsDNA breaks. The BRCT(2) domain is required for dimerization, but its precise role in DNA damage repair and checkpoint signaling is unclear. The crystal structure of the Crb2-BRCT(2) domain, alone and in complex with a phosphorylated H2A.1 peptide, reveals the structural basis for dimerization and direct interaction with gamma-H2A.1 in ionizing radiation-induced foci (IRIF). Mutational analysis in vitro confirms the functional role of key residues and allows the generation of mutants in which dimerization and phosphopeptide binding are separately disrupted. Phenotypic analysis of these in vivo reveals distinct roles in the DNA damage response. Dimerization mutants are genotoxin sensitive and defective in checkpoint signaling, Chk1 phosphorylation, and Crb2 IRIF formation, while phosphopeptide-binding mutants are only slightly sensitive to IR, have extended checkpoint delays, phosphorylate Chk1, and form Crb2 IRIF. However, disrupting phosphopeptide binding slows formation of ssDNA-binding protein (Rpa1/Rad11) foci and reduces levels of Rad22(Rad52) recombination foci, indicating a DNA repair defect.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2057/1/FW.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>CSH Press</dc:publisher><dc:source>0890-9369</dc:source><dc:title>Structural and functional analysis of the Crb2-BRCT2 domain reveals distinct roles in checkpoint signaling and DNA damage repair</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Kilkenney, M L</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Dore, A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Roe, S M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Nestoras, K</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ho, J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Watts, F Z</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Pearl, L</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-08</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1101/gad.472808</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

The meeting also presented an opportunity for the Society to debate the major issues in the field and to develop a long term strategy towards achieving the goals of the Society. The most exciting and ambitious outcome of the meeting was the launch of the African Genome Project. The meeting was held in conjunction with the First Annual Meeting of the Division of Human Genetics and Genome Research and the National Society of Human Genetics of Egypt. The conference theme was ‘Genomics Research in Africa: Implications for Disease Diagnosis, Treatment and Drug Development’. Over 200 participants (including clinicians, geneticists, statisticians, bioinformaticians and social scientists) attended from 28 countries, 16 of which are in Africa.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2081/1/Proceedings_of_the5th_AnnualMeeting_of_AfSHG_FINALSeptember_revised.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:relation>http://content.karger.com/ProdukteDB/miscArchiv/000/197/973/Suppl.pdf</dc:relation><dc:source>Public Health Genomics</dc:source><dc:subject>QH0426</dc:subject><dc:subject>QH426</dc:subject><dc:subject>R1</dc:subject><dc:title>Genomics Research in Africa: Implications for Disease Diagnosis, Treatment and Drug Development: Proceedings of the 5th Annual Meeting of the African Society of Human Genetics</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Newport, Melanie J.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Abdelhaq, Sonia</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Abulezz, Emal</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Adeyemo, Adebowale</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Davey, Gail</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Gad, Yehia</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Hennig, Branwen</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Marshall, Patricia A.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Mohamed, Amal M.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Royal, Charmaine D.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Soodyall, Himla</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Rotimi, Charles N.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:type>Conference Paper/Proceeding/Abstract</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

There are many powerful methods for studying QED near media with diverse properties and geometries. However, applying them to a particular problem generally necessitates extensive numerical calculations. This is not the case for simple systems of high symmetry, in which the electromagnetic field can be quantised by explicit mode expansion, allowing exact analytic calculations. In the present thesis, we calculate the energy-level shift of a ground state atom near a non-dispersive and non-dissipative dielectric slab. The shift is due to the interaction of the atom with electromagnetic field fluctuations, which in turn are affected by the presence of the slab. Thus, a quantisation of the electromagnetic field in the presence of a layered system is required. We derive the field modes, which comprise of a continuous set of travelling modes (with incident, reflected and transmitted parts) and trapped modes, subject to repeated total internal reflection and emerge as an evanescent field outside the slab, they only exist at certain discrete frequencies. The shift is obtained by means of second-order perturbation theory. It splits up naturally into two contributions, due to the different nature of the modes, and a problem arises when we have to add them all. We have come up with a convenient method of summing over all modes, and its validity has been demonstrated by proving the completeness. The calculation of the shift follows as an application of our method. The result is analysed asymptotically for various regions, reducing to simple formulas that can be utilised in recent experiments, in which the thickness of the substrate matters.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2108/1/thesis-finalversion.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QC</dc:subject><dc:title>Quantum electrodynamics of an atom in front of a dielectric slab</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Contreras Reyes, Ana Maria</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2009-02</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

In contrast, a multiresolution wavelet packet analysis can decompose the input signal into a set of frequency subbands giving the opportunity to characterise the texture at the appropriate frequency channel. An adaptive best bases algorithm for optimal bases selection for meningioma histopathological images is proposed, via applying the fractal dimension (FD) as the bases selection criterion in a tree-structured manner. Thereby, the most significant subband that better identifies texture discontinuities will only be chosen for further decomposition, and its fractal signature would represent the extracted feature vector for classification. The best basis selection using the FD outperformed the energy based selection approaches, achieving an overall classification accuracy of 91.25% as compared to 83.44% and 73.75% for the co-occurrence matrix and energy texture signatures; respectively.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2172/1/ICIP2009.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>IEEE Press Piscataway</dc:publisher><dc:source>978-1-4244-5653-6</dc:source><dc:subject>QA75</dc:subject><dc:title>A fractal dimension based optimal wavelet packet analysis technique for classification of meningioma brain tumours</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Al-Kadi, O.

While listening to them I was often forced to question the clinical strategies I was employing and to interrogate the psychoanalytic approaches that established abandonment as a paradigm of mental catastrophe. Why? Because in the different testimonies of these women there seemed to be no trace of severely damaged or perturbed psychic processes. This female experience while traversed and shaped by a male sexual desertion that, although negative in itself, was neither impairing nor psychopathologic – as the classic psychoanalytic theory of loss, abandonment and mourning had established. Quite surprisingly to me this specific form of abandonment, which is essentially centred on the ambiguous status of being and not being in a relationship, stimulated in these women very interesting unconscious process which led them to start breaking into traditional patriarchal social moulds and gender patterns. These women seemed to have become emancipated and thereby in command of many decisions which offered them a greater sense of independence and self-awareness while leading them to redefine aspects of their subjectivity which were before solidly linked to the prescriptions of their male partners. In very simple terms, these women did not consider themselves as victims. In order to tackle the unconscious vicissitudes underlying this form of female subjectivity, and since I did not usually keep written or taped records of my patients, I considered the implementation of clinical group work outside the context of my consulting room and office at the University. The Clinical Work Group 2003-2004 With the support of the Instituto Michoacano de la Mujer (The Michoacan Women's Institute) in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico and the Universidad Michocana de San Nicolas de Hidalgo (UMNSH) the clinical work group was set up and it took place throughout eight sessions from November 21, 2003 to February 6, 2004 with the participation of five women and a colleague of mine in the role of observer. Theoretical Background My study case was organised as an operative group following the approach of the Argentinean socio-psychoanalyst Enrique Pichon-Riviere who made important contributions to the study of group dynamics and their role in society. As he himself describes it, “the technique of these groups is centred on the task, where theory and practice are resolved in a permanent and concrete praxis of the ‘here and now’ of each indicated field.” The two main hypotheses guiding the operative group technique were: 1) The pre-existence within each subject of ECROS (Conceptual Referential Operative Schema) which are stereotyped structures of thought that achieve a certain unity through group work and later stimulate the group’s operative referential scheme. 2) There is an essential similarity between the processes of teaching and learning, on the one hand, and of therapy, on the other. This kind of group was therefore centred on the participants’ pursuit of a rational learning task and not an explicitly therapeutic one. This means that participants were not labelled as patients requiring a therapeutic process but as individuals (women) who were invited to join a group learning experience. On the other hand, the group experience itself was conceived and conducted in relation to British psychoanalyst W.R. Bion’s basic assumptions concerning group theory, which means the application of a theoretical understanding of the psychoanalytic principles of group psychotherapy. In general terms, what Bion postulates is that there is a group mentality, -the unanimous expression of the will of the group that presents difficulties for the individual in the pursuit of their aims -, which can be understood in the light of three basic assumptions, or three recurrent patterns of behaviour: pair, fight-flight and dependence. Approach to the group The task undertaken in this case consisted of the reading of short stories which I selected on the basis of their themes which needed to be relevant to aspects of the research topic, and thus included stories about the separation of lovers, abandonment, marriage problems and ordeals, female sexuality and the role of women in Michoacán’s migrant communities. The titles of the stories were as follows: 1) “La Tejedora” (“The Spinner”) 2) “El Hombre de Hierro” (“The Iron Man”) 3) “Gracias a la Vida” (“Thanks to Life”) 4) “Underwood” 5) “El Esposo” (“The Husband”) 6) “Una Yunta” (“A Yoke”) 7) “Los Ciclos de la Vida” (“Life Cycles”) Outcomes The group work revealed that abandoned women by migrant men were not psychologically damaged.

Clinical structure and process standards were generally well met, with the exception of partner notification provision.

However, structures resembling the axial elements of SCs, the so-called linear elements (LinEs) appear. By in situ immunostaining, we found Pmt3 (S. pombe's SUMO protein) transiently along LinEs, suggesting that SUMOylation of some component(s) of LinEs occurs during meiosis. Mutation of the SUMO ligase Pli1 caused aberrant LinE formation and reduced genetic recombination indicating a role for SUMOylation of LinEs for the regulation of meiotic recombination. Western blot analysis of TAP-tagged Rec10 demonstrated that there is a Pli1-dependent posttranslational modification of this protein, which is a major LinE component and a distant homolog of the SC protein Red1. Mass spectrometry (MS) analysis revealed that Rec10 is both phosphorylated and ubiquitylated, but no evidence for SUMOylation of Rec10 was found. These findings indicate that the regulation of LinE and Rec10 function is modulated by Pli1-dependent SUMOylation of LinE protein(s) which directly or indirectly regulates Rec10 modification. On the side, MS analysis confirmed the interaction of Rec10 with the known LinE components Rec25, Rec27, and Hop1 and identified the meiotically upregulated protein Mug20 as a novel putative LinE-associated protein.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2308/1/Spirek_Watts_2010_loidl.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Chromosoma</dc:publisher><dc:source>1432-0886 (Electronic)</dc:source><dc:title>SUMOylation is required for normal development of linear elements and wild-type meiotic recombination in Schizosaccharomyces pombe</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Spirek, M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Estredicher, A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Csaszar, E</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Wells, J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>McFarlane, Ramsay J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Watts, Felicity</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Loidl, J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s00412-009-0241-5</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Of particular interest are the internal cylindrical cavities formed by adjacent discs and the interaction of these with a central axial throughflow of cooling air. Tests were carried out for a range of non-dimensional parameters representative of gas-turbine high pressure compressor internal air system flows (ReΦ up to 5x106 and Rez up to 2x105). One configuration of the test rig was tested in the course of the reported study (Build 3) and test data from a previous rig configuration (Build 2) were processed, analysed and compared with the tested data. The most significant difference between the two builds of test rig was the size of the annular gap between the (non-rotating) shaft and the disc bores. Build 3 had a wider annular gap ratio, dh/b=0.164, while Build 2 featured a gap ratio of dh/b=0.092. Heat transfer data were obtained from thermocouples and a conduction analysis. Heat transfer results show differences between the versions of the rig, with the higher Nusselt number values in Build 3 attributed to the wider annular gap allowing more of the throughflow to penetrate into the cavity compared to Build 2. An attempt is made to correlate the average disc Nusselt numbers and this indicates the existence of different regimes. A two-component Laser Doppler Anemometry system was used on both rigs to measure cavity axial and tangential velocity components. Optical access in Build 3 also allowed for measurement of radial velocities. The axial and radial velocities inside the cavities are virtually zero. The size of the annular gap between disc bore and shaft has a significant effect on the radial distribution of tangential velocity. An analysis of the frequency spectrum obtained from the tangential velocity measurements shows evidence of periodicity in the flow consistent with the current understanding of the flow structure in a heated rotating cavity with axial throughflow.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2319/1/Mich%C3%A9%2C_Nicolas_D._D..pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>TA</dc:subject><dc:subject>TL</dc:subject><dc:title>Flow and heat transfer measurements inside a heated multiple rotating cavity with axial throughflow</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Miché, Nicolas D D</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2009-11-30</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

It is about the way in which children develop their identities in transnational communities in societies being transformed by globalisation. It is about the reproduction of societies through the socialisation of children and the tension inherent between this reproduction and social change. I set out to study children but became interested in adults’ interactions with children and the nature of transnational communities and identities. As my fieldwork progressed I was drawn away from children into a study of families and societies. So, while children are the empirical focus of this thesis, there are many complementary sections which draw on evidence from adults or only discuss adults. As my description of Shirin and her brother above illustrates, processes and tensions are mediated by children often through seemingly contradictory attitudes and practices. I will investigate this phenomenon of contradiction and ambivalence as it characterises the experiences of the British Bangladeshi children I focus on and is key to understanding way in which identities are formed and experienced. [It] was conceived as part of the research project ‘Home and Away: South Asian Children’s Representations of Diaspora’, which was managed by my supervisor, Dr. Katy Gardner and Dr. Kanwal Mand. One aim of the project was to address a gap in research on the views of transnational children on issues of culture, belonging and identities. The project aims to investigate and bring to the fore the influence of the life course in migration research. This thesis contributes to these aims, but on its own can make only a partial contribution to this field. It is a snapshot of just over a year in the lives of a group of about twenty British Bangladeshi children between the ages of 8 and 12. Added to this material is additional data collected from a wider group of children in less depth, from younger and older siblings and from parents and other adults.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2320/1/Zeitlyn%2C_Benjamin.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>HQ</dc:subject><dc:subject>GN</dc:subject><dc:title>Growing up glocal in London and Sylhet</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Zeitlyn, Benjamin</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-02-23</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

In particular, it examines the case of BT in the UK, as a large-scale first mover in this transition. The research is based on recent developments in the telecommunications industry, and the empirical evidence was obtained through documentary analysis and a large number of interviews. Using the resource-based view (RBV) as a foundation, the wider theoretical contribution of this thesis lies in the proposition that integrated solutions are constructed through the combination of platform strategy, project business and service innovation. A unique contribution is to consider the customer/user perspective, as the traditional literature on integrated solutions relies heavily on the supplier perspective. Another specific contribution is in the integration of two aspects of the platform strategy that are usually treated separately in the literature: (i) the reusability of components and subsystems; and (ii) the openness of the platform to external actors in order to drive innovation in the industry. The empirical evidence points to the development of the following approaches by BT: (i) the deployment of the network as a platform, integrating both aspects mentioned above; (ii) the adoption of a customer-centric approach which resulted in the establishment of a new business unit, BT Global Services (BTGS), that required the development of stronger capabilities in integrated solutions, especially in professional services (i.e. consultancy, project management and systems integration); (iii) the use of the term ‘open innovation’ as a management injunction within BT in order to coordinate several initiatives which bring together internal and external collaborators and resources to innovate in services. The above approaches, however, have not changed BT’s core capability in the provision of network/infrastructure services. The challenge is to connect BT’s platform to their customers’ networks and to shape long-term relationships to enhance the profitability of the integrated solutions. Finally, the findings suggest that the platform and customercentric strategies may not be enough (or even be the right ones) for the survival and growth in the long-term future of BT in the telecommunications industry. This is evidenced by the recent failure (as of 2008) of BTGS to provide professional services profitably.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2321/1/Sato%2C_Carlos_Eduardo_Yamasaki.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>HF</dc:subject><dc:subject>HE</dc:subject><dc:subject>HD</dc:subject><dc:title>Building the network as a platform for integrated solutions and service innovations in the transition to the next generation of telecommunications: the case of BT</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Sato, Carlos Eduardo Yamasaki</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-03-23</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

SUMO (small ubiquitin-like modifier) is one of a number of ubiquitin-like proteins. Unlike ubiquitin, SUMO does not appear to have a role in protein degradation. Instead it has been shown to have roles in facilitating protein-protein interactions, altering protein localisation and modulating protein activity. Analysis of protein databases indicates the existence of ubiquitin-fusion proteins, which act to functionally mimic ubiquitination by interacting with the proteosome. During the course of this project a family of SUMO-like domain (SLD) proteins has been identified and termed the RENi family after its best-studied members S. pombe Rad60, S. cerevisiae Esc2 and M. musculus Nip45. I have initiated an investigation into the importance of the two SUMO-like domains for S. pombe Rad60 function. A rad60 mutant deleted for SLD1 (rad60-SLD1Δ) is not viable suggesting that SLD1 is required for the essential role of Rad60. A rad60 mutant deleted for SLD2 (rad60-ct) is viable but cells are sensitive to DNA damaging agents. This implies that SLD2 is not required for the essential function of Rad60 but is required for the response to DNA damage. The C-terminally truncated Rad60 protein (Rad60-ct) is mis-localised in rad60-ct cells. Provision of an NLS to the C-terminus of the Rad60-ct protein restores nuclear localisation but does not rescue the HU and MMS sensitivity of rad60-ct cells. Instead, expression of the Rad60-ctNLS protein has a dominant-negative effect in both wild-type and rad60-ct cells. The same phenomenon was observed when SLD2 was replaced with SUMO. This suggests that SLD2 is required not only to localise Rad60 to the nucleus, but also for the DNA damage response itself. Molecular modelling suggests that SLD1 and SLD2 can adopt the characteristic ββαββαβ fold. A novel ‘recombinase-mediated cassette-exchange’ system was used to initiate a structure/function study of Rad60 SLD2 by mutating residues predicted to help maintain the hydrophobic core. The DNA damage sensitive phenotype of L348G, L338G, L346G and I334G substitutions support the hypothesis that the SLD2 adopts a SUMO-like fold. Sumoylation of Rad60, in vitro, can be enhanced by the SUMO E3 ligase, Pli1 but not Nse2. Rad60 is sumoylated in a manner dependent on the C-terminus, which has is required to interact with the Hus5 conjugator, in vitro. This suggests that SLD2 may act to recruit Hus5 for sumoylation of itself and/or other proteins.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2322/1/Boyd%2C_Lara_Katrina.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QH426</dc:subject><dc:subject>QH301</dc:subject><dc:title>Investigation into the role of the SUMO-like domains of the Schizosaccharomyces pombe DNA repair protein Rad60</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Boyd, Lara Katrina</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-04-08</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The focus in this article is of the extent to which mathematics assessment items reflect and represent the current curriculum drive for increased mathematical applications in the curriculum. We show that whilst mathematics is represented as a human activity in the examinations, peopling assessment items may serve actually only to disguise the routinised calculations and procedural reasoning that largely remains the focus of the assessments, with the effect that classroom mathematics remains unchanged. We suggest that there are more opportunities for assessment items to illustrate mathematics in use, and we draw attention to ways of assessing mathematics that allow these opportunities to be taken.</dc:description><dc:format>application/msword</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2323/1/assessment_paper.doc</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>European Conference on Education Research</dc:source><dc:subject>LB2361</dc:subject><dc:title>Seeking authenticity in high stakes mathematics assessment</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Drake, Pat</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Wake, Geoff</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Noyes, Andy</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2009-09-30</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Conference Paper/Proceeding/Abstract</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

A vital element of this reform was the prescription of active community participation in the affairs of schools within their localities. The establishment of school management committees (SMCs) was to create a new school governance landscape based on community participation, as well as devolution of power to the metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies. In this regard, considerable attention has been focused on central government‟s understanding of how this devolution of authority to communities and schools should work and how communities should assume responsibility for increased participation in schools. From the inception of this policy over two decades ago, there seems to have been no feedback through research findings or diagnostic policy reviews on how this new role of the community has been received, interpreted and executed in its engagement with schools, particularly in the rural poor and underserved areas. Mindful of this, this study sought to explore the multiple understandings of how community and school relations work, as well as the challenges and pressures which influence community – school relationships. The study employed the qualitative methods of interview and documentary analysis to collect data on the understanding and experiences of community – school relations from SMCs and PTAs; other members of the community; the school; and education management. The findings suggest that many of the theoretical and policy expectations about representation and participation in school improvement through the SMC and PTA concept are only evident in form and not in practice. Furthermore, in poor rural contexts, it is often the comparatively better educated and influential members of the community, including informal groups who become the new brokers of decision-making, and who through their actions close spaces for the genuine representation and participation of others. In some cases, SMCs seldom work as the de facto representatives of the community, as decisions are made and critical interactions occur outside this formal structure for community representation and engagement in school governance. This affects the visibility of SMCs and undermines their credibility and capacity to play their intended role. Moreover, the degree of community participation in schools appears to be shaped by the school fulfilling community expectations of schooling and on a „social contract‟ based on the principle of reciprocity. These findings support the view that the fate of schools is increasingly tied to and powerfully shaped by key players at the local level, and that this happens through more informal and traditional roles which are more trusted but not necessarily representative of the image presented by policy on community participation in school governance. The findings also highlight the threat to voluntarism, a key assumption of the policy on community participation and the importance of seeking ways in which schools can play a more active role as change agents in the community, thereby legitimising in the community‟s eyes their importance in the life of the community.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2326/1/Essuman%2C_Ato.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>LG</dc:subject><dc:subject>L1</dc:subject><dc:title>Perspectives on community-school relations: a study of two schools in Ghana</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Essuman, Ato</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-04-26</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

They can also be applied in collocation methods to solve partial differential equations. We develop and analyse a mesh-free discretization method for Darcy's problem. Our approximation scheme is based upon optimal recovery, which leads to a collocation scheme using divergence-free positive denite kernels. Besides producing analytically incompressible flow fields, our method can be of arbitrary order, works in arbitrary space dimension and for arbitrary geometries. Firstly we establish Darcy's problem. To introduce the scheme we review and study divergence-free and curl-free matrix-valued kernels and their reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces. After developing the scheme, we find the approximation error for smooth target functions and the optimal approximation orders. Furthermore, we develop Sobolev-type error estimates for target functions rougher than the approximating function and show that the approximation properties extend to those functions. To find these error estimates, we apply band-limited approximation. Finally, we illustrate the method with numerical examples.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2327/1/Schraeder%2C_Daniela.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QA</dc:subject><dc:title>Analytically divergence-free discretization methods for Darcy's problem</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Schraeder, Daniela</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-02-23</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Although Java can provide many advantages, including a wider portability and better optimisation opportunities on execution, it introduces extra overhead by requiring an IR translation for the program execution. For maximum execution performance, an optimising compiler is placed in the runtime to selectively optimise code regions regarded as “hotspots”. This common approach has been effectively deployed in many implementation of programming languages. However, the computational resources demanded by this approach made it less efficient, or even difficult to deploy directly in a resourceconstrained environment. One implementation approach is to use a remote compilation technique to support compilation during the execution. The work presented in this dissertation supports the thesis that execution performance can be improved by the use of efficient optimising compilation by using a proxy dynamic optimising compiler. After surveying various approaches to the design and implementation of remote compilation, a proxy compilation system called Apus is defined. To demonstrate the effectiveness of using a dynamic optimising compiler as a proxy compiler, a complete proxy compilation system is written based on a research-oriented Java VirtualMachine (JVM). The proxy compilation system is discussed in detail, showing how to deliver remote binaries and manage a cache of binaries by using a code migration approach. The proxy compilation client shows how the proxy compilation service is integrated with the selective optimisation system to maximise execution performance. The results of empirical measurements of the system are given, showing the efficiency of code optimisation from either the proxy compilation service and a local binary cache. The conclusion of this work is that Java execution performance can be improved by efficient optimising compilation with a proxy compilation service by using a code migration technique.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2328/1/Li%2C_Jian.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QA75</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>Proxy compilation for Java via a code migration technique</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Li, Jian</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-04-26</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Conventional approaches to International Relations argue that the eastern question was solved by creating multiple, legitimate, sovereign national states in lieu of Ottoman rule as the outcome of an expanding European modernity, replacing the outdated, illegitimate and despotic rule of Oriental princes. However, this assumption entails a tension between the supposedly universal scope of European modernity and its fractured, multi-national form of transmission. This contradiction, implicit in International Relations theory, is the subject of this thesis. Examining this problem in the light of the eastern question, this thesis offers a historical sociological reconstruction of the social transformations that produced the supposedly ‘modern’ geopolitical ‘order’ in Southeastern Europe. The critical re-reading and positive reconstruction of the Ottoman trajectory from the end of territorial expansion in 1683 to the Greek secession in 1821, problematizes in how far territorial fragmentation of political rule can be understood as the ‘logical’ result of the expansion of ‘modern’ social and political relations. It is argued that, instead of understanding these developments as a teleological and predetermined process of Westernization, the key for understanding the emergence of the post-Ottoman state system lies in deciphering the dialectic between a ‘domestic’ social struggle among pre-capitalist classes and an intensifying pan-European geopolitical dynamic. Hence, rather than understanding the process of nation-formation as the inevitable result of the expansion of ‘modern’ international relations, it is necessary to emphasize the specificity of the Ottoman, like any other transformation. This in turn helps illuminating the unnatural and malleable nature of ‘modern’ territorial inter-national ‘orders’. Rather than implementing a just, natural or finite domestic and geopolitical order, ‘national’ fragmentations result from specific, materially conditioned social struggles. This raises generic problems with static and ahistorical understandings of social and geopolitical relations. It is suggested that a theoretically open historical materialist sociology of International Relations can provide a remedy. In consequence, it is argued that the ‘eastern question’, far from being solved by the formation of national states, still remains open to this day.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2332/1/Hoffman%2C_Clemens.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>JZ</dc:subject><dc:title>The Eastern Question and the fallacy of modernity on the premodern origins of the modern inter-state order in southeastern Europe</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Hoffmann, Clemens M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-04-23</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

This is achieved by applying a Monte Carlo Markov Chain (MCMC) method to constrain the 6 free parameters that define the stellar mass function at redshift zero. The model is tested against three different observational data sets, including the galaxy K-band luminosity function, B −V colours, and the black hole-bulge mass relation, to obtain mean values, confidence limits and likelihood contours for the best fit model. We discuss how the model parameters affect each galaxy property and find that there are strong correlations between them. We analyze to what extent these are simply reflections of the observational constraints, or whether they can lead to improved understanding of the physics of galaxy formation. When all the observations are combined, the need to suppress dwarf galaxies requires the strength of the supernova feedback to be significantly higher in our best-fit solution than in previous work. We interpret this fact as an indication of the need to improve the treatment of low mass objects. As a possible solution, we introduce the process of satellite disruption, caused by tidal forces exerted by central galaxies on their merging companions. We apply similar MCMC sampling techniques to the new model, which allows us to discuss the impact of disruption on the basic physics of the model. The new best fit model has a likelihood four times better than before, reproducing reasonably all the observational constraints, as well as the metallicity of galaxies and predicting intra-cluster light. We interpret this as an indication of the need to include the new recipe. We point out the remaining limitations of the semi-analytic model and discuss possible improvements that might increase its predictive power in the future.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2334/1/Henriques%2C_Bruno_Miguel_Barreiro.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QB</dc:subject><dc:subject>QC</dc:subject><dc:title>Hybrid galaxy evolution modelling: Monte Carlo Markov Chain parameter estimation in semi-analytic models of galaxy formation</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Henriques, Bruno M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-05-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Phosphorylation plays an important role in regulating actin in many cell types, but the role it plays in regulating the development and maintenance of the hair bundle has yet to be fully elucidated. Furthermore, the extent to which damaged hair bundles can be repaired in the mammalian cochlea remains to be determined. The aims of this study were twofold: 1) to assess the role of phosphorylation in hair bundle development and 2) to ascertain whether hair bundles could recover from any damage caused by protein kinase inhibition or the aminoglycoside neomycin. Post-natal mouse cochlear cultures were treated with a range of protein kinase inhibitors. Of those tested, the broadspectrum protein kinase inhibitor staurosporine was found to cause hair bundle collapse and detachment of the apical cell membrane from the cuticular plate without causing cell death. Further investigation suggests that staurosporine may have its effects through inhibiting the function of the Ezrin-Radixin-Moesin proteins, an important family of proteins that cross link actin to the plasma membrane. An inhibitor of c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase, JNK inhibitor I, was also found to cause the loss of hair bundles, but in contrast to staurosporine, also caused hair cell death. This was unexpected, as previous studies have shown that inhibition of c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase confers protection on hair cells from noise and aminoglycoside damage. Recovery of hair bundles was not observed following brief treatment with either staurosporine or neomycin. The current study shows that protein phosphorylation is vital for the proper maintenance of the hair bundle, and hair that bundles show little sign of recovery from limited damage in vitro.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2335/1/Ratnayaka%2C_Helen_Sum_Kay.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QD</dc:subject><dc:subject>QP</dc:subject><dc:title>Effects of protein kinase inhibitors on hair bundle structure</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Ratnayaka, Helen Sum Kay</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-05-17</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Due to the growing demands of tequila it has been intensively cultivated through asexual means resulting in a narrow genetic variability. The crop is extremely prone to insects and diseases and a breeding programme for selection and conservation of the crop is required. However poorly understood classification of agave and limited availability of molecular data is a big hurdle in establishing a useful breeding programme. Retrotransposons are mobile genetic elements that can replicate through a copy and paste mechanism occupying large proportions of genomes in short periods of time. They can play a vital role in the organisation and evolution of plant genomes and retrotransposon based molecular markers can be used as powerful molecular tools. Retrotransposons can play a key role in understanding Agave tequilana genetics as well as its relationship with other agave species and cultivars. In the work described here Ty1-copia retrotransposon have been isolated and characterised, retrotransposon based molecular markers have been used to evaluate the asexual genetic diversity in different vegitatively propagated mother and daughter plants. The phylogenetic relationship of these sequences revealed that Ty1-copia retrotransposons are heterogeneous in nature and they might have been actively replicating in recent past. The copy number of Ty1- copia retreotransposon was also evaluated and it was found that a large proportion of agave genome is occupied by these elements. Ty1-copia retrotransposons were also found to be polymorphic in agave tissue culture lines suggesting that they might be activated under the effect of stressed conditions. The findings of this study will help in understanding the genetics of Agave tequilana, and will provide a basis for further research on retrotransposon mediated asexual genetic variability in agave and other clonally propagated plants in general. It will also help us understand the activity of retrotransposons in the genome of agave in unusual environmental conditions.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2336/1/Khaliq%2C_Ishtiaq.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QK</dc:subject><dc:subject>QH301</dc:subject><dc:title>Isolation, characterisation and expression of Ty1-copia retrotransposons in Agave tequilana</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Khaliq, Ishtiaq</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-05-17</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

In order to understand this issue against existing literature, a critical review of previous studies has been attempted, considering the idiosyncratic characteristics of the Korean national innovation system. As a result, at the three analysis levels (i.e. national, organisational and individual levels), we propose three conceptual elements respectively: a tentative historical path of universities in catch-up countries; critical factors influencing knowledge transfer activities of universities in catch-up countries; and academics operating in synergy mode. Thereafter, based on the methodology integrating not only the three analysis levels but also qualitative and quantitative approaches, we analyse the data collected from the interviews with Korean academics, survey responses from Korean academics and government White Papers on the activities of Korean universities. The results show a close and positive relationship between Korean universities’ academic research and knowledge-transfer activities across the three levels. Firstly, during the last several decades, the Korean government has strongly encouraged the development of teaching, academic research and knowledge-transfer activities of Korean universities in harmony with the different developmental stages of Korean industry. This has resulted in selective patterns of the universities’ three activities (e.g. concentration of scientific activities in certain fields). Secondly, organisational factors such as scientific capacity and industry funding are important for universities’ knowledge-transfer activities in a catch-up country, which corroborates the positive relationship between the two activities. Finally, in terms of the factors influencing the synergy mode (i.e. a positive relationship between academic research and knowledge-transfer activities), academics’ career stage and disciplines are important. This is related to the rapid expansion of the Korean academic system and the selectivity found in its activities. Based on these findings, it is tempting to conclude that universities in East Asian catch-up countries have developed their own academic system different from those in developed countries, which can be characterised as having strong government control and a high level of interaction with other actors in the national innovation system. Therefore, the application of the controversy over the direct economic contribution of universities in western countries to the context of catch-up countries is quite limited.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2337/1/Kwon%2C_Ki-Seok.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>LG</dc:subject><dc:subject>L1</dc:subject><dc:title>Universities' academic research and knowledge-transfer activities in a catch-up country: the case of Korea</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Kwon, Ki-seok</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-04-26</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

ADE are fertile anthropogenic (man-made) soils formed through practices of burning and waste disposal by pre-Columbian Amerindian populations. “Caboclo” is a social category that refers to the people of diverse origins that form the majority of the contemporary rural population of Brazilian Amazonia. Bitter manioc fields (roças) and homegardens (sítios) are the principal forms of Caboclo subsistence cultivation on ADE on the Middle Madeira River. Multi-sited ethnography shows that differences in historical ecology at both local and regional scales either enable or constrain Caboclo subsistence cultivation on ADE. At communities located on long-term landholdings with a history of egalitarian land-tenure and multi-generational kinship there is a rich body of local knowledge and practice relating to the cultivation of ADE. Interviews with 249 farmers in six localities demonstrate that bitter manioc cultivation in fertile soils (floodplain and ADE) tends to be characterised by intensive swidden systems with smaller fields, shorter fallows, and a predominance of what locals refer to as “weak” (low starch fast maturing) landraces. Bitter manioc cultivation in infertile soils (Oxisols and Ultisols) is characterised by more extensive shifting cultivation systems with larger fields, longer fallows and a predominance of what locals refer to as “strong” (high starch slow maturing) landraces. Interviews with 63 households at 16 communities show that homegardens on ADE combine the most common species of homegardens on Oxisols and in the Floodplain, with other species that occur most frequently on ADE. Homegardens on ADE exhibit significantly higher culturally salient species diversity when compared to homegardens on the other types of soil. Collectively, bitter manioc fields and homegardens constitute cultivated landscapes that show diverging agrobiodiversity on different soils, the outcome of an interplay between soil affordances, Caboclo agency and plant responses over time. These findings provide a springboard for some conclusions concerning the relationship between ADE and agriculture in the pre-Columbian period, drawing on what is known from the historical and archaeological record.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2339/1/Fraser%2C_James.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>GF</dc:subject><dc:subject>GB</dc:subject><dc:subject>GN</dc:subject><dc:title>Amazonian dark earths and Caboclo subsistence on the middle Madeira River, Brazil</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Fraser, James Angus</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-03-23</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

One of the primary aims of this thesis is to revise older accounts of censorship, dominant in the literature of both the history of science and Italian intellectual history traditions. These historiographies suggest that the Counter- Reformation triggered the emergence of a new and repressive attitude towards the censorship of philosophy, which grievously affected Italian intellectual and scientific culture in the seventeenth century. My thesis challenges this received view by drawing upon the insights produced by historians working in other disciplines, especially institutional historians of the Inquisition and the Index of Forbidden Books, and historians of the Church who have challenged the older monolithic view of the „Counter-Reformation Church‟. It seeks to show that while there were indeed significant changes to the apparatus of censorship during the sixteenth century, notably the re-organisation of the Inquisition and creation of the Index, they did not signal an entirely new approach towards the censorship of philosophy, nor did it have the cataclysmic impact suggested by earlier historians. I argue that the attitudes towards philosophy maintained within these institutions represent a specific formulation of the relationship between philosophy and revealed faith, which was in fact consistent with ideas elaborated within the mendicant orders during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. I argue that the implementation of these ideas as the basis for censorship can only be understood by understanding complex power struggles within the Church.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2340/1/Tarrant%2C_Neil_James.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>DG</dc:subject><dc:subject>D1</dc:subject><dc:title>Disciplining the School of Athens: censorship, politics and philosophy, Italy 1450-1600</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Tarrant, Neil James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-05-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

In Paper 1, Jacoby’s (1991) process-dissociation procedure was used to estimate the relative contributions of recollection and familiarity in recognizing own- and other-race faces. Recollection estimates were higher for own-race faces than for other-race faces, although this effect disappeared when deep or shallow encoding strategies were encouraged. In Paper 2, participants were shown to be less accurate at ignoring previously seen other-race distractors than own-race distractors. Papers 3 and 4 examined how accurately participants were able to remember contextual information about correctly recognized faces. In the encoding phase of an old/new recognition test, each target face was paired with one of several different backgrounds. At testing, old judgments were followed by context judgments, in which the participant attempted to identify with which background the face had been paired. The context judgments were consistently more accurate for correctly recognized own-race faces than for correctly recognized other-race faces. This effect was robust to experimental manipulations such as context reinstatement and divided attention. The overall conclusion from this thesis is that recollection is inferior for other-race faces compared to own-race faces. This recollection deficit means that it is more difficult to retrieve specific information about the circumstances in which other-race faces were encountered. The implications of this recollection deficit for real world behaviour are discussed, with particular reference to eyewitness memory.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2344/1/Horry%2C_Ruth.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QZ</dc:subject><dc:title>Placing faces: recollection and familiarity in the own-race bias for face recognition</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Horry, Ruth</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-04-28</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

It further explores the impact of these beliefs on educational access, policy and provision as well as on inclusion in wider society for both children with autism and their families. It is argued throughout that conceptualisations of both autism and disability are subtly, and at times unconsciously, shaped by cultural influences as well as individual experiences. Using semi-structured interviews, participatory methods and text analysis, this thesis first examines internationally accepted diagnostic criteria for cultural relevancy and concludes that while 'autism'does indeed transcend cultural barriers, its presentation is nonetheless culturally bound. The presentation of each of autism's 'triad of impairments' is explored in Ghana, namely communication and socialisation impairments alongside a restricted range of interests and repetitive behaviour patterns. Significantly, the experience of autism demonstrated in this thesis, at both a personal and familial level, is linked to, and negotiated through, cultural belief systems. A relatively shared 'worldview', understood as the culturally mediated lens through which autism and impairment are understood and managed in Ghanaian society, is outlined. Traditional values, a deep sense of spirituality and communal kinship responsibilities are highlighted. Next, an exploration of causal attributions, valued and de-valued personhood traits and the expected role of an adult in society each highlights significant influences on the perception and management of autism in Ghana. Throughout, this thesis focuses on the impact of autism, as constructed and understood in urban Ghana, on the individual, one's kin and broader society. The second half of this thesis focuses on educational access, policy and provision with particular attention to Ghana's burgeoning inclusive education efforts. Conceptualisations of disability and difference, as negotiated through Ghanaian culture, norms and history are explored alongside the implications of these beliefs in designing educational provision for students with autism as well as the socio-political pressures to adhere to large scale international movements such as Education for All (EFA). In particular, tensions between local and international conceptualisations of 'disability' and 'inclusion' are highlighted and it is concluded that adoption of international declarations into local policy, and subsequently into local practice, needs to be better negotiated alongside culturally relevant systems and beliefs. International declarations, rooted in a social model of disability, are found to clash with local conceptualisations of disability rooted in an often intuitive understanding of disability consistent with an individual model. However, consistency with an individual model did not equate to biomedical understandings of disability, which was instead mediated through a lens of socialrelational causation and management more consistent with religious or cultural models of disability. It is concluded that acknowledging and respecting Ghanaian understandings of disability is a prerequisite to ensuring inclusion of children with autism, both in education and their community. Adoption of laudable rights based international declarations must also ensure adaptation to local culture and context. Conclusions and recommendations for synergy between advocacy for, and education of, students with autism in Ghana are proffered.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2347/1/Anthony%2C_Jane_H..pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>LG</dc:subject><dc:subject>L1</dc:subject><dc:title>Towards inclusion: influences of culture and internationalisation on personhood, educational access, policy and provision for students with autism in Ghana</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Anthony, Jane H</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Tobago is the location of the world’s oldest protected tropical forest, established in 1763. This was the first but by no means the last occasion when particular policies have been formulated to regulate the relationship between land, commerce and people in Tobago. The thesis traces the emergence of particular ethics of land use and property in the Tobago from 1763 up to the present day and their interplay within the logic of policy. The central research aim was to analyse the disjuncture between the intention of government development plans in Tobago, and the actual outcome of those plans for the people and landscape. This was approached both by ethnographic field study, and by archival and oral historical work that could discern the historical development of the language of modern policy. The project involved the writing of an environmental history of Tobago and an ethnographic account of debates and trends in contemporary environment and development policy in Tobago. The fieldwork revealed many gaps in the existing literature with respect to Caribbean environmentalism and the history of Caribbean landscapes. The detailed archival research, coupled with a revised theoretical frame that it supports, should reframe and improve modern debates concerning environment and tourism. Drawing together the findings of the thesis research is intended to help form a new understanding of the origins of contemporary Caribbean policy processes, the beliefs from which they derive, the debates they generate and their interaction with the physical environment.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2349/1/Woodcock%2C_Lowell.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>HC</dc:subject><dc:subject>GF</dc:subject><dc:subject>E11</dc:subject><dc:title>Islands of inequality: the environmental history of Tobago and the crisis of development and globalisation in the Caribbean 1763–2007</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Woodcock, Lowell</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-01-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The ex-post institutional analysis helps to understand how the present came about and how the future might develop. In order to understand the process of the institutional change, this section highlights the importance and necessity of assuming the existence of previous institutions and the influence of this interaction on the durability and stability of new institutional forms. In search for driving forces behind and 15 barriers to sustainable development, Section 3 focuses on the current capacity of the study area to deal with slow and imperceptible changes in the circumstances of the transition countries. Special attention is paid to the concept of robustness, which plays an important role in the context of CEE, more precisely in the area of the SRNAP, where the economic and political transition process has been followed by an increased tourist inflow to the National Park and consequent slow environmental changes, without adequate strategies and considerable societal response. Analysing current situation of the study area helps to identify potential problems and understand what changes and innovation in the current conditions are needed to ensure sustainable development. By applying multi-criteria evaluation, section 4 explores different options with regard to tourism development in the study area and the necessary changes in the institutional arrangements in relation to these options. By analysing the process of institutional building from different time perspectives section 5 (conclusions) illustrates the driving forces behind and barriers of the study area towards robust and sustainable rural development and describes some policy implications.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2350/1/Chobotov%C3%A1%2C_Veronika.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>GV</dc:subject><dc:subject>HD</dc:subject><dc:title>Tourism in the Slovenský Raj National Park – an analysis of its contribution to sustainable rural development</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Chobotova, Veronika</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-04-26</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The continued dependence on migration and increasingly, women‘s migration, by the Philippine government to address unemployment on one hand, and by the Filipino families on the other hand, to secure employment and a better life, has led to social change: change in migrant women‘s sense of identity and personhood; restructuring of households and redefinition of families and gender relations and the rise of a culture of migration. To understand these social changes, the study focuses on the return phase of migration situated within the overall migration process and adopts a gendered and feminist approach. Existing theories of return migration cannot adequately capture the meanings of the return of migrant women workers. Studying return through a gendered approach allows us to reflect on the extent migration goals have been achieved or not, the conditions under which return takes place for a migrant woman worker and various factors affecting life after migration for the migrant women and their families. Return of the women migrant workers cannot be neatly categorised as voluntary or involuntary. It is gendered. It is involuntary, voluntary, and mainly ambivalent. Involuntary return was influenced by structural limitations arising from the temporary and contractual type of migration in jobs categorised as unskilled. Voluntary return was mainly determined by the achievement of migration goals, the psychological need to return after prolonged absence and by the need to respond to concerns of families left behind. Ambivalent return was caused by the desire to maintain the status, economic power, freedom and autonomy stemming from the migrants' breadwinning role; the need to sustain the families‘ standard of living; as well as the apprehensions of a materially insecure life back home. The socio-psychological consequences on families and children of migrant women are deep and wide-ranging. Similarly, women migrants, though empowered at a certain level, had to face psychological and emotional consequences upon return influenced by persistent gender roles and gender regimes. By analysing the impact of gendered migration and return on the societal level, the study has broadened and deepened the conceptualisation of the phenomenon of culture of migration by bringing other elements and factors such as the role of the state, human resources, sustainable livelihood, national identity and governance.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2351/1/Sri_Tharan%2C_Caridad_T..pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>HQ</dc:subject><dc:subject>HN</dc:subject><dc:subject>HD</dc:subject><dc:title>Gender, migration and social change: the return of Filipino women migrant workers</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Sri Tharan, Caridad</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-05-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The impact of finances not only influenced the growth of many small theatre groups that prescribed to the needs and demands of the NGOs under the broader Development agenda, but also saw shifts in the work of Tehrik e Niswan and Ajoka, from the voluntary and ideology-based nature of their work to one that was ultimately incorporated into the dominant culture. Moreover, what was evident through the work done by theatre groups under the development agenda was that theatre as a tool for social critique was depoliticised and seen as a commodity, transforming its role from self-directed activism to donor-driven activism. One common aspect between the groups under discussion is their underlying adherence to western orientated approaches to political theatre through the theories of Brecht or Boal, which informs their work in many ways. While examining how Brecht’s theories have influenced the practices of Tehrik e Niswan and Ajoka, or Boal’s theories have been used and even extracted from their original context by the IRC, I also argue for a need to re examine notions about selfhood and agency that the groups advocate in their practice, through analysing or examining alternative concepts of agency in non liberal traditions and away from thedominant discourse.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2353/1/Mundrawala%2C_Asma.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>PN2000</dc:subject><dc:title>Shifting terrains: the depoliticisation of political theatre in Pakistan</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Mundrawala, Asma</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

This is a complex and ambiguous association. Myth is variously defined, referring to fable and falsehood as well as symbolic narratives of memory and identity. It is also variously applied, to Reagan’s character, ideology, communication and legacy. Reagan’s relationship to American mythology has been incompletely defined, and is in need of a synthesis which shows the connections between its different facets and processes, while identifying the problems of such an approach. Analysing the extensive literature on Reagan, using his public papers and published writings, and based on original research at the Reagan Presidential Library and at Stanford University, this thesis considers the presence and functions of American myth in Reagan’s presidency in five distinct ways. Firstly, I look at the mythic narratives of Reagan’s life in his biography. Secondly, I define his own perception of American history. Thirdly, I describe his distinctive, but constrained engagements with national commemoration. Fourthly, I explore the politicised historical interpretations of two central events of his presidency, the end of the Cold War, and the Iran/Contra affair. Lastly, I examine how his presidential library works to define his varied meaning in American history and mythology. The thesis concludes by surveying Reagan’s meaning in twenty-first century America, and the tension between his national and partisan symbolism. Reagan built a reputation on his successful appeals to American myth, memory and identity and maintains a charged and contested symbolism. This association and this success have become the definitive factor of his image as his own mythology emerges in American national culture.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2354/1/Johnson%2C_Roger_James.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>E151</dc:subject><dc:title>Ronald Reagan and the mythology of American history</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Johnson, Roger James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-04-26</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

PAFID is defined as “customer contacts that appear to be precipitated by earlier failures, such as failures to do things right first time, which cause additional and potentially avoidable demands to impinge upon public services”. A secondary objective of the thesis is to establish how, and under what better conditions, the public sector could successfully exploit the management paradigm called Lean thinking, as an alternative to the current New Public Management method, in order to address the PAFID problem. An analysis of the results from three case-studies conducted in UK local authority settings confirms that nearly half of all customer contacts in high-volume services such as housing benefits are potentially avoidable. The extrapolation of this finding to the contact volumes and handling costs in one UK council alone suggests possible savings of more than £1 million a year. The potential benefits that are available to the case-study councils and nearly 500 other local councils, together with numerous other providers of UK public services, are also very substantial. A variety of conceptual lenses are applied to the PAFID problem in order to generate alternative explanations and policy options. This thesis makes a number of contributions to public sector management theory and practice, including the finding that councils might reduce principal-agent problems that add to PAFID by espousing more supportive and enabling environments, and by adopting systems-oriented approaches that acknowledge the complex and subjective nature of real-world problems. The findings also suggest that, while the deployment of Lean ‘tools’ can result in short-term savings and performance improvements, the adoption of Lean thinking as a comprehensive management approach is more likely to bring about fundamental changes.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2355/1/Masters%2C_Kevin_Ian_Albert.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>HD28</dc:subject><dc:title>From New Public Management to Lean thinking: understanding and managing 'potentially avoidable failure induced demand'</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Masters, Kevin Ian Albert</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-08</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

As such, Iskra does not appear to have been the product of a detailed plan conceived in Siberian exile, as is often thought. Nor did it represent the extreme left wing of the Russian social-democratic movement of the time, a place occupied by Osvobozhdenie Truda. Iskra and its supporting organisations formed a faction of a broader party, the RSDLP, whose institutions it aimed to rebuild and to which it aimed to give ideological leadership broadly in sympathy with the basic views of Plekhanov, though differing with him in terms of tactics. Starting from a position of weakness both in the emigration and inside Russia, Lenin at first sought an alliance with the 'Economists' of Rabochee Delo rather than a policy of open factional struggle, which was at this stage (1900-01) advocated by Plekhanov. Only when serious vacillations in the Rabochee Delo line started to emerge in the spring of 1901 did Lenin break with this tactic, in despair of any useful co-operation with the politically unstable followers of the economist journal. From the end of 1901an open struggle for the support of the RSDLP local committees inside Russia began, in which the Economists were unable to martial support, whilst Iskra, owing to its network of full-time 'agents' and their assistance, eventually won a dominant position. On this basis, plans were laid for a Second Congress of the RSDLP that reveal a distinctly democratic and pluralist conception of party organisation on the part of Lenin, A conception which does not square with his dictatorial reputation. Accordingly, this thesis argues that the Second Congress was a credible, if not perfect representation of rank and file opinion within the RSDLP at the time and that the split within the Iskra faction that took place at this meeting owes more to pre-existing tensions with the Russian Iskra organisation rather than any unreasonable behaviour on the part of Lenin. Specifically, individual agents showed signs of weariness in relation to Lenin‘s policy of factional struggle prior to the Second Congress. For this reason they sought, but failed to find compromise at the congress with the Bund and the economists, and as such provoked a split with the supporters of Lenin within Iskra. As such, it was actually an inopportune search for compromise which appears to have provoked the split within Iskra, rather than dictatorial or intolerant practices on the part of Lenin. The supporters of Martov assumed that the Bund and the supporters of economism could be appeased, but this was not in fact the case.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2356/1/Mullin%2C_Richard.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>JC</dc:subject><dc:subject>JA</dc:subject><dc:subject>JF</dc:subject><dc:title>Lenin and the Iskra faction of the RSDLP: 1899-1903</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Mullin, Richard James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-08</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

post-war liberalism from 1945 to 1980. Its original contribution to the scholarship on&#13;
neoconservatism lies in the claim that a particular understanding of Jewishness&#13;
fundamentally shaped the neoconservatives’ right turn, as well as neoconservative&#13;
ideology. Few scholars have recognised the primacy of Jewish identity politics in the&#13;
evolutionary history of neoconservatism. Those who have, have done so inadequately&#13;
and unmethodically. Therefore, my thesis systematically analyses the Jewish dimension&#13;
of early neoconservatism by placing particular focus on its two principal mouthpieces,&#13;
Commentary and The Public Interest, while drawing on autobiographical writings,&#13;
personal papers and oral interviews.&#13;
&#13;
Reconsidering neoconservatism from this angle also contributes to a reevaluation&#13;
of modern Jewish political history by debunking the myth that the American&#13;
Jewish community is governed by consensus based on political identification with&#13;
liberalism. My thesis shows that neoconservatism not only contributed to the rise of&#13;
conservatism and the fall of liberalism on a national level, but also played an important&#13;
role in post-1945 Jewish intra-communal contentions about which political affiliation&#13;
best expresses modern Jewish American identity. Accordingly, it demonstrates that&#13;
Jewish political culture is more diverse than is usually appreciated and that&#13;
neoconservatives draw on a tradition of Jewish conservatism, which has so far received&#13;
little attention from scholars of modern Jewish history.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2357/1/%282012.05.25%29_Janssen%2C_Nadja_A..pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>HT</dc:subject><dc:subject>JK</dc:subject><dc:subject>JA</dc:subject><dc:title>‘Is it good for the Jews?’: Jewish intellectuals and the formative years of neoconservatism, 1945-1980</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Janssen, Nadja A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-08</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The thesis comprises three empirical chapters. The first chapter uses the instrumental variable (IV) estimation procedure to model the hours of work of married couples. This approach allows us to test whether some of the assumptions of the neoclassical model (e.g., income pooling and Slutsky properties) are satisfied by the data. In addition, further variables that have been identified as distribution factors in the literature are introduced to the empirical model to assess whether they play a role in explaining a couple’s hours of work. The first chapter only considers couples in which both spouses work. In the second chapter, the sample is amended to include all couples (i.e., those that work and those that do not) and the analysis conducted models a couple’s labour market participation decisions rather than their hours of work. After testing for income pooling and the impact of distribution factors, a further variable, the wife’s mother-in-law work status when the male spouse was aged 14, is introduced into the model. This is done to determine the effect of 'cultural' variables on labour market decisions. In the last chapter, this issue is explored further by explicitly modelling attitudes to a woman’s role in the labour market. This approach uses a bivariate ordered probit model given the ordinal nature of responses to the attitudinal questions and again restricts the analysis to couples only. Finally, gender-role attitudes are introduced to the labour supply framework used in the second chapter in order to evaluate whether beliefs regarding women’s role impact on a couple’s labour market decisions.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2358/1/Tabet%2C_Marie-Christine.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>HC</dc:subject><dc:subject>HN</dc:subject><dc:title>Household labour supply in Great Britain: can policy-makers rely on neoclassical models?</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Tabet, Marie-Christine</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-08</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The Aryl hydrocarbon receptor (Ahr) is the key component in the metabolic response to dioxins. Ahr is a cytoplasmic bHLH-PAS transcription factor that, upon binding with dioxin, translocates to the nucleus. There it forms a complex with the Ah receptor nuclear transloator (Arnt), another bHLH-PAS protein, and binds to the eight-nucleotide XRE motif to control gene expression. Previous work with Ahr knock-out mice revealed the existence of dioxin-independent activity for Ahr in development, but the relationship between the two activities of Ahr remains unclear. Our work uses Drosophila to clarify this question, which is central for therapies seeking inactivation of Ahr. The Drosophila Ahr homologue, spineless(ss), does not bind dioxins, however, it physically interacts with Tango (Tgo), Arnt’s fly homologue, and controls gene expression through the XRE motif during development. Here I show that, in the absence of dioxin, Ahr can still bind Tango and Arnt and rescues ss- phenotypes, indicating equivalent dioxin-independent activities. I next demonstrate that exposure to dioxin produces an in vivo hyperactivation of Ahr, which can also be achieved by increasing the dosage of either Tango or Arnt. Thus Ahr shows different levels of activity, from basal to toxic, depending on the presence of specific ligands and cofactors, and the toxic effects of dioxins represent an excess of the Ahr developmental function. I have also carried out a genetic screen in the search of genes that interact with ss. From this screen I have found that the genes that code for the Krüppel-type zinc-finger proteins Squeeze (Sqz) and Rotund (Rn) interact functionally with ss. I demonstrate that Rn and Ss interact physically in vivo. Ahr is also able to interact functionally with rn and sqz indicating that the interaction with zinc-finger proteins might be an ancestral feature of the dioxin receptor.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2359/1/Cespedes%2C_Miguel_Angel.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QL</dc:subject><dc:title>Characterisation of the effects of dioxins on Ahr through its homologue in Drosophila: Spineless</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Cespedes, Miguel Angel</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

My research investigates reasons behind the lack of appeal of Bollywood films in the West (particularly in their contemporary form), revealing how our understanding and appreciation of them is restricted or misinformed by a long history of censure from critics, scholars, educators and ambassadors of the Indian cinema. Through my analysis of the function and effects of cultural appropriation and postmodern traits in several recent popular Indian films, I expose Bollywood's unique film language in order to raise our appreciation of this cinema and suggest ways in which it can be better incorporated into future film studies courses. My analysis is based on a study of over a hundred contemporary Bollywood remakes and includes close textual analysis and case studies of a wide variety of popular Bollywood films, including: Dil Chahta Hai (2001), Abhay (2001), Kaante (2002), Devdas (2002), Koi…Mil Gaya (2003), Sarkar (2005), Krrish (2006) and Om Shanti Om (2007). In my conclusion, I offer a redefinition of contemporary Bollywood and I consider postmodernism's usefulness as a tool for teaching Indian cinema and its value as an international cultural phenomenon.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2360/1/Wright%2C_Neelam_Sidhar.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>PN1993</dc:subject><dc:title>Bollywood eclipsed : the postmodern aesthetics, scholarly appeal, and remaking of contemporary popular Indian cinema</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Wright, Neelam Sidhar</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-08</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

It proposes a framework for characterising the decentralised governance of innovation projects in sectors and identifying emerging organisational configurations in this specific context. The general characteristics of the project-based knowledge networks are examined in terms of (i) the shifting boundaries between subsidiaries and technological partners, (ii) the specialisation of actors in types of activities and (iii) the speed of change in the collaborations between multinational companies and technological institutes. The emerging configurations are classified in terms of (i) the knowledge and resources flows in different innovation projects and (ii) the common aims of the different groups of stakeholders. This framework is applied on the decentralised networks of innovation projects in the Brazilian ICT sector promoted by tax incentives to innovation activities (―Brazilian ICT Law‖). The empirical analysis combines the data of more than 10,000 innovation projects and in-depth case studies on the organisation of innovative activities in 11 R&amp;D laboratories in subsidiaries of multinational companies and 11 of their main technological partners. The analysis of the project-based knowledge networks and emerging configurations is recognised as a useful tool for examining the dynamics promoted by the sectoral policy. This research provides insights on how the institutional framework such as the Brazilian ICT Law provided the space for the decentralised interaction between different organisations with very different interests. The analysis also shows that the regulation may support higher investments in R&amp;D, but it does not necessarily enforce a project portfolio that promotes a sustainable knowledge flow between multinational companies and the sectoral innovation system. Finally, the thesis includes specific recommendations for addressing key challenges such as the organisational development of the subsidiaries, the emergence of private research institutes and the coordination of sectoral policies.

Threats such as security of supply concerns, the volatility of fuel and electricity prices, and especially environmental concerns like climate change, are putting increasing pressure on current electricity systems. One key response by governments has been support for innovation. It is widely acknowledged that electricity systems will have to change fundamentally in order to deliver on political goals. This will require deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions. Incremental change along established technological trajectories is unlikely to be sufficient. Instead ‘system innovations’ have been suggested as a solution by scholars and policy makers. What are the politics of such an endeavour? To answer this question this thesis looks at two distinct policy initiatives to promote more sustainable electricity systems: the ‘Energy Transition’ project in the Netherlands and the ‘Carbon Trust’ in the UK. While the aim of the two policy initiatives is similar, they try to tackle the challenge in very different ways. The analysis is based on semi-structured interviews as well as a review of documents and secondary literature and follows a process tracing method, combining within-case and cross-case analysis. By utilising a framework based on ‘discursive institutionalism’ (as per Hajer and Schmidt) the study aims to shed light on the importance of both discourses and institutional contexts in shaping policy initiatives to promote ‘system innovations’. It demonstrates the mechanisms by which particular framings of the problem, expressed through new storylines, come to legitimate particular government policies. It emerges that existing institutions not only shape which storylines are politically acceptable but also constitute tangible features of the organisational and technical environment which those initiatives must change. In conclusion, the thesis argues that the politics of governing ‘system innovations’ can usefully be conceptualised and explained by struggles about meaning. These are shaped in turn through discursive interactions between actors as well as existing institutions. By highlighting the interplay between discourses, interests and institutions, the results provide an input to scholarly debate and policy making alike, in ways that offer to help inform the rethinking of strategies for fostering socio-technical ‘system innovations’.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2362/1/Kern%2C_Florian.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>HD</dc:subject><dc:title>The politics of governing ‘system innovations’ towards sustainable electricity systems</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Kern, Florian</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-05-17</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Measuring the clustering of galaxies can provide information about the different environments that different types of galaxies reside in. Also, measuring the clustering of similar samples of galaxies at different redshifts can provide insights into how galaxies have evolved over time. Previous clustering analyses, particularly at high redshift, have often been restricted to galaxy samples which are small, selected on observable properties and/or contain an unknown mixture of different spectral types. Small samples lead to limited statistics and the inability to break the sample into interesting subsamples based on properties, e.g. by luminosity or star formation rate. Selecting samples based on observable properties leads to varying intrinsic properties with redshift and hence makes interpreting the evolution of clustering difficult. Mixing spectral types makes it impossible to separate the contribution to the clustering signal from early and late-type galaxies which tend to cluster very differently. This thesis overcomes some of the limitations of earlier clustering analyses by using the Spitzer Wide area InfraRed Extragalactic (SWIRE) photometric redshift catalogue of Rowan-Robinson et al.(2008) to measure the clustering of galaxies. The SWIRE catalogues covered multiple fields and large volumes providing large samples of galaxies over 0.1 &lt; z &lt; 1.5. The template fitting procedure also provides spectral classifications as well as intrinsic properties such as stellar mass and star formation rate estimates. The clustering of elliptical and spiral galaxies detected in SWIRE is measured as a function of stellar mass over 0.1 ≤ z ≤ 1.5. The clustering of spiral galaxies selected on star formation rate is also investigated over the same redshift range. Such measurements can help constrain theories of galaxy evolution. Another Spitzer dataset, the dark field, is used in an attempt to place one of the first observational constraints on the detection rate of population III supernovae. The dark field is an extragalactic data set with repeat imaging on a monthly basis over a baseline of approximately 2 years. The unprecedented depth and multi-epochal nature of this data makes it ideal for a first foray into trying to detect supernovae from the first stars.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2363/1/Frost%2C_Mark.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QB</dc:subject><dc:subject>QC</dc:subject><dc:title>The clustering of galaxies in the SWIRE survey</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Frost, Mark Ian</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-05-17</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

This task has been studied for decades and is one of the main topics being investigated in the computer vision field. While vertebrates perform this task with exceptional reliability and in very short amounts of time, the visual processes involved are still not completely understood. Considering the desirable properties of the visual systems in nature, many models have been proposed to not only match their performance in object recognition tasks, but also to study and understand the object recognition processes in the brain. One important point most of the classical models have failed to consider when modelling object recognition is the fact that all the visual systems in nature are active. Active object recognition opens different perspectives in contrast with the classical isolated way of modelling neural processes such as the exploitation of the body to aid the perceptual processes. Biologically inspired models are a good alternative to study embodied object recognition since animals are a working example that demonstrates that object recognition can be performed with great efficiency in an active manner. In this thesis I study biologically inspired models for object recognition from an active perspective. I demonstrate that by considering the problem of object recognition from this perspective, the computational complexity present in some of the classical models of object recognition can be reduced. In particular, chapter 3 compares a simple V1-like model (RBF model) with a complex hierarchical model (HMAX model) under certain conditions which make the RBF model perform as the HMAX model when using a simple attentional mechanism. Additionally, I compare the RBF and HMAX model with some other visual systems using well-known object libraries. This comparison demonstrates that the performance of the implementations of the RBF and HMAX models employed in this thesis is similar to the performance of other state-of-the-art visual systems. In chapter 4, I study the role of sensors in the neural dynamics of controllers and the behaviour of simulated agents. I also show how to employ an Evolutionary Robotics approach to study autonomous mobile agents performing visually guided tasks. In addition, in chapter 5 I investigate whether the variation in the visual information, which is determined by simple movements of an agent, can impact the performance of the RBF and HMAX models. In chapter 6 I investigate the impact of several movement strategies in the recognition performance of the models. In particular I study the impact of the variation in visual information using different movement strategies to collect training views. In addition, I show that temporal information can be exploited to improve the object recognition performance using movement strategies. In chapter 7 experiments to study the exploitation of movement and temporal information are carried out in a real world scenario using a robot. These experiments validate the results obtained in simulations in the previous chapters. Finally, in chapter 8 I show that by exploiting regularities in the visual input imposed by movement in the selection of training views, the complexity of the RBF model can be reduced in a real robot. The approach of this work proposes to gradually increase the complexity of the processes involved in active object recognition, from studying the role of moving the focus of attention while comparing object recognition models in static tasks, to analysing the exploitation of an active approach in the selection of training views for a object recognition task in a real world robot.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2364/1/Bermudez_Contreras%2C_Edgar.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>TJ</dc:subject><dc:subject>QC</dc:subject><dc:title>Modelling active bio-inspired object recognition in autonomous mobile agents</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Bermudez Contreras, Edgar Josue</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-08</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

I will argue that liberals are constantly aware both of their marginalisation (which is seen as being cultural, historical and political) when they react to other ideologies and to those who hold political power, and also of the difficulty of shaping Russia’s future along liberal lines. The liberal response to nationalism, therefore, provides a useful model in showing how liberals have reacted to ideologies which are typically regarded as being outside the liberal movement in Russia and also how they have sought to respond to many of the central questions relating to transition. I will show in this study that the response of liberals towards nationalism demonstrates a huge increase in the diversity of the liberal movement from the mid 1990’s onwards, as the internal divides amongst liberals have become apparent under the impact of transition. Secondly, liberals have been torn between the possible strategic benefits of combining liberalism with non-liberal elements, weighed against the ideological problems these combinations cause. These dilemmas have left Russian liberalism as an essentially stagnant ideology which remains incapable of forming a united and coherent response both to its own marginalisation and to the challenges faced by Russia.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2365/1/McDonald%2C_Kristian.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>DK</dc:subject><dc:subject>JC</dc:subject><dc:title>An investigation into the approach of modern Russian liberal thinkers towards nationalism</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>McDonald, Kristian Paul</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-03-24</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

A particularly interesting structural motif common to both is the cyclohexenecarboxylic acid. In the former, this structural motif has been employed as a mimetic of the sialyl cation intermediate and forms the scaffold of the anti-influenza drug and neuraminidase inhibitor Oseltamivir (or TamifluTM). In the latter pathway, crucial modifications towards aromatic amino acids are carried out via shikimic acid, a cyclohexenecarboxylic acid, as a substrate. A straightforward method to replace the carboxylate moiety in such structures with a phosphonate would provide access to a wide variety of mimetics, for instance monoesters, that still retain a negative charge under physiological conditions usually required for bioactivity. The aim of this research project was to develop an efficient synthesis of the cyclohexenephosphonate scaffold from chiral pool precursors via two key steps, a Hunsdiecker-Barton iododecarboxylation followed by a palladiummediated coupling step to introduce the phosphonate moiety, thus giving a convenient access to interesting bioactive molecules. This approach has successfully been applied to the shikimic acid to afford ‘phospha’-shikimic acids and 3-dehydro-‘phospha’-shikimic acids, and further development of this strategy has led to the synthesis of ‘phospha’-Tamiflu and its derivatives from an Oseltamivir precursor.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2367/1/Carbain%2C_Beno%C3%AEt.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QD</dc:subject><dc:title>A convenient synthesis of bioactive cyclohexenephosphonates</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Carbain, Benoit</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Moreover, there is a long tradition of political cartooning which is firmly situated within the historical context of caricature and lampooning, which over the years has contributed to public debates on key issues such as politics, religion and social change. In this thesis, I focus on political cartoons and argue that the political cartoon is still significant as a cultural product and as a powerful journalistic medium at a time when the existence of the print media is threatened by new technological developments. In order to understand how cartoons remain a powerful mode of expression in the twenty-first century, I begin by examining the historical development of cartooning, tracing its origins in grotesque art, physiognomy and caricature. I then explore a number of events in early modern European history such as the Reformation and the French Revolution to show that the medium was used as a means of mass communication, to inform a largely illiterate public, incite protest and instigate rebellion through propaganda. I show how political graphics were used as effective political weapons against the ruling authorities, in the face of tight regulation such as censorship, and underline the French artists’ commitment to defend their right of expression. As I demonstrate, this commitment continues to be pursued by contemporary French cartoonists such as Plantu who is dedicated to fighting for freedom of expression and promoting peace issues, under the banner of Le Monde and the United Nations. In analysing a corpus of Plantu’s editorial creations, I underline theoretical perspectives for ‘reading’ cartoons and illuminate the visual rhetoric used by cartoonists to communicate serious issues. I conclude with an assessment of the significant role that French cartoonists played during the 2006 Cartoons War to further highlight the impact of cartoons as a vehicle for political communication, and as a catalyst for debate in the twenty first century.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2369/1/Maupoint%2C_Micheline.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>NC</dc:subject><dc:title>'Un Bon Dessin Vaut Mieux Qu'un Long Discours': The role and impact of cartoons in contemporary France</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Maupoint, Micheline E</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-11</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The dissertation considers why practice assessors find it so difficult to fail social work students and what might get in the way of failing a student. The rationale for such an exploration concerns the relatively limited literature from both social work and other disciplines where there is a practice-learning element and what limited literature there is often appears under-theorised. A further rationale to explore this area of professional practice concerns the author‟s own experiences as a social work practitioner, practice assessor and social work educator. Located within a qualitative framework, the methodological influences on the research include: ethnography, life story and narrative approaches as well as practitioner-research paradigms; although it is clear that as the research progressed, practitioner-research paradigms became more influential. Based on twenty in-depth interviews with both new and experienced practice assessors, the research utilises the voice centred relational method to analyse the data. From this narrative process a number of stories emerge, including; “The Angry Story”, “The Dramatic Event Story”, “The Guilty Story”, “The Idealised Learner Story”, “The Internalising Failure So I Couldn‟t Always Failure Them Story”, “The Lack of Reflection Story” and the “What is my Role/Assessment Story”. Psychodynamic frameworks have been employed to theorise and make sense of these various stories as well as transactional analytical perspectives. Differences in approach to practice assessing are also considered, most notably around how practice assessors‟ conceptualise, make use of and understand the assessment process. It is also clear that disability, gender, ethnicity, class and sexuality also impact on the assessment process. For some practice assessors, ultimately the evidence of students' competence appears to rest on hope. It appears that some practice assessors are still giving students “the benefit of the doubt” a phrase coined thirty years ago by Brandon and Davies (1979) in a wide ranging but still very relevant study of the assessment of social work students in practice settings. Practice assessors thus find it difficult to fail students because of: Their lack of reflection about the intense emotions raised; The internalisation of these intense feelings; Lack of support from colleagues, the Higher Education Institute (HEI) and tutors; Lack of understanding about the process of assessment; Difficulties in managing the multifaceted role of the practice educator including the lack of acknowledgment of the gate keeping function.The dissertation concludes that although practice assessors have a very clear understanding of what behaviours might hypothetically cause a student to fail the practice learning opportunity, the reality is that not all practice assessors go on to fail the student. The high emotionality often associated with the process of managing a potentially failing student on placement often obscures the process. The thesis argues the need for practitioners to consider the intense feelings that arise in difficult practice learning opportunity situations in a more reflective, contained and considered manner. A number of ways forward have been suggested in light of these findings, including the need to pilot a reflective toolkit for practice assessors and students alike.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2370/1/Finch%2C_Johanna_Louise.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>HN</dc:subject><dc:subject>LF</dc:subject><dc:subject>L1</dc:subject><dc:title>Can't fail, won't fail - why practice assessors find it difficult to fail social work students: a qualitative study of practice assessors' experiences of assessing marginal or failing social work students</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Finch, Johanna Louise</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-04-26</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

One of the major achievements and beacons of economic reform is the growth of some of the most technologically advanced hospitals in the world. This thesis examines the social processes shaping the expansion of the private health care system in the state of Kerala, South India, where large corporate hospitals and 'super-speciality' medicine have spread throughout urban and many rural areas. It explores the intersections between the local and the global, as the health system becomes the major driver of industrial development, unevenly linking the local health care system to the global marketplace for technologies, health care professionals and patients. It examines the three faces of the health care system in Kerala - as a knowledge industry and route to social mobility for the middle classes, in particular doctors and nurses; secondly, as a consumer economy, as people prioritise spending on health care and shop for treatment in the urban marketplace; and finally as a moral economy, as people develop high levels of dependency on doctors, hospitals and technologies in the hope of receiving good health care. The ethnography is set in Malabar, Northern Kerala, where the expansion of private health care has been financed by remittances from migration to the Arabian Gulf countries. The thesis examines the influence of migration and economic reforms on local ecologies of health and health care; the impact of the globalisation of trade in health services in the developing world; the relationship between the private health care system and the middle classes in South Asia; and the role of markets in the delivery of health services. Based on 18 months of participant observation across the urban and rural health care market with local communities of doctors and patients, it examines how doctors and patients adjust to a changing ecology and economy of health care.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2371/1/Wilson%2C_Caroline.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>RA0421</dc:subject><dc:title>The commodification of health care in Kerala, South India: science, consumerism and markets</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Wilson, Caroline H</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-05-17</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

In first establishing the conditions of majority and majority, Deleuze and Guattari’s historical focus in Kafka is the early twentieth century period of Franz Kafka’s writing, a period which, for Deleuze, marks the start of a transition between two types of society – the disciplinary society described by Michel Foucault in Discipline and Punish and the control society that is set apart by its distribution, indifferent technical processes and the replacement of the individual with the dividual in social and political thought. Because of their unique conceptual location, at the transition between societies, the concepts of majority and minority present an essential framework for understanding the impact of ubiquitous digital technology and informatics on cultural production in the twentieth century and beyond. In order to determine the conditions of contemporary major and minor practice across the transition from disciplinary to control societies, the thesis is comprised of two interconnecting threads corresponding to majority and minority respectively. Drawing on the theoretical work of Deleuze and Guattari, Friedrich Kittler and Fredric Jameson alongside pioneering figures in the historical development of computation and informatics (Alan Turing, Claude Shannon and others), material observation on the technical function of digital machines, and the close examination of emblematic cultural forms, I determine the specific conditions of majority that emerge through the development of the contemporary control era. Alongside this delineation of the conditions of majority I examine the prospective tactics, corresponding to the characteristics of minority set out by Deleuze and Guattari in Kafka, which emerge as a contemporary counter-practice within the control-era. This is carried out through the close observation of key examples of cultural production in the fields of literature, film, video, television and the videogame that manifest prospective tactics for a control-era minor practice within the overarching technical characteristics of the control-era major. Through an examination of these interrelated threads the thesis presents a framework for both addressing the significant political and cultural changes that ubiquitous computation effects in constituting the contemporary control society and determining the ways in which these changes can be addressed and countered through cultural production.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2372/1/Franklin%2C_Seb.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>PG</dc:subject><dc:subject>P1</dc:subject><dc:title>The major and the minor on political aesthetics in the control society</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Franklin, Sebastian</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-03-23</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The research questions correspond to the three ideological dimensions/domains which are taken into consideration (centre-periphery, leftright and European integration), as well as to the links amongst such dimensions/domains: why are some regionalist parties more moderate (i.e. autonomists) while other are more radical (i.e. secessionists)?; why do some regionalist parties position themselves to the left, while others position themselves to the right?; why are some regionalist parties pro-integration, while others are against?; are there relationships between regionalist parties‟ positions across the diverse ideological dimensions? The analytical framework brings together sociological theories of political alignments with theories of party competition and theories of party change. The empirical section is made up of a comparison of four case studies (LN, PC, SVP and SNP), which are analysed in depth, plus a final chapter that includes the most important regionalist parties in Western Europe. Data are gathered through interviews with prominent party members, party documents (primarily manifestos), election studies and secondary sources. In brief, in the conclusions it is argued that: regions that have been independent states in the past and regions with concentrated ethno-linguistic minorities tend to produce more radical parties on the centre-periphery dimension. Competition between regionalist parties acting in the same region also increases radicalism; 'working class' regions tend to produce leftist regionalist parties, while 'bourgeois' regions tend to produce rightist regionalist parties; positioning on European integration depends mainly on the compatibility of the selfgovernment project with the process of European integration and on parties‟ satisfaction with the policy output of the state vis a vis that of the EU; only weak relationships can be discerned between centre-periphery and left-right positioning, and between centre-periphery and European integration. A stronger relationship is apparent between left-right and European integration positioning.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2373/1/Massetti%2C_Emanuele.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>JN</dc:subject><dc:title>Political strategy and ideological adaptation in regionalist parties in Western Europe: a comparative study of the Northern League, Plaid Cymru, the South Tyrolese People's Party and the Scottish National Party</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Massetti, Emanuele</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-03-23</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Damage caused by UV irradiation can cause bulky DNA lesions that block replication forks. Postreplication repair (PRR) is a DNA damage tolerance mechanism, which enables the replication machinery to bypass DNA lesions. The PRR machinery is thought to be recruited by ubiquitination of the sliding clamp, PCNA. In human cells, the USP/UBP superfamily deubiquitinating enzyme (DUb) USP1 has been shown to remove ubiquitin from PCNA and hence acts as a PRR modulator. However, little is understood about the deubiquitination of PCNA or its regulation in yeast. The purpose of this study was to characterise the role of DUbs in yeast PRR. 24 DUbs were found to be encoded in the genome of Schizosaccharomyces pombe. No clear USP1 orthologue was found. A DUb deletion library was created and screened. A double mutant wherein two paralogous DUbs were deleted, ubp21D ubp22D, was found to exhibit sensitivity to UVC and increased PCNA ubiquitination. The ubp21D ubp22D strain was also found to be sensitive to a variety of DNA damaging agents and some spindle poisons. The double delete was epistatic with a mutant strain in which PCNA cannot be ubiquitinated. However, the genetic relationship with the enzymes that ubiquitinate PCNA was not so clear and a reduction in PCNA ubiquitination was not detected when either Ubp21 or Ubp22 was exogenously expressed. Ubp21 and Ubp22 also contain a meprin and TRAF homology (MATH) domain and a conserved DWGF motif in the MATH domain was found to be important for Ubp22 function. The human orthologue, HAUSPUSP7, stabilises the tumour suppressor p53 and is a highly characterised DUb. The Saccharomyces cerevisiae orthologue is Ubp15, but when this gene was deleted, only modest spindle poison sensitivity was detected. Determination of the precise functions of Ubp21 and Ubp22 in PRR requires further investigation.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2378/1/Holmes%2C_Rosalind_Mary.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QD</dc:subject><dc:subject>QH301</dc:subject><dc:title>Deubiquitinating enzymes and post-replication repair in Schizosaccharomyces pombe</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Holmes, Rosalind Mary</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-03-23</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The extracellular domain of Ptprq has numerous potential sites for N-glycosylation and the cytoplasmic domain has phosphatidyl inositol phosphatase activity in vitro. The current project was aimed at determining whether Ptprq regulates inositol phosphate levels in the hair bundle, identifying the intracellular binding partners of Ptprq, understanding what targets Ptprq to the apical membrane, and finally, elucidating whether Ptprq is a proteoglycan. The results show that EHD3, a protein involved in endocytosis, interacts with the intracellular domain of Ptprq and that a major part of the apical targeting signal in Ptprq lies in the N-glycosylated moieties of the extracellular domain. Also, evidence was found indicating that Ptprq is a chondroitin sulphate proteoglycan and that there may be a developmentally-regulated isoform carrying the DSD-1 epitope. Glycosylation variants of Ptprq may be responsible for the regional variation in the appearance of the shaft connectors.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2379/1/Nayak%2C_Gowri.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QD</dc:subject><dc:subject>QP</dc:subject><dc:title>The hair cell antigen/PTPRQ: lipid phosphatase activity, intracellular domain interactors, apical targeting and evidence that it is a proteoglycan</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Nayak, Gowri Dinesh</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Specifically, the emergence of a representational trend within its texts that has resulted in a disproportionate number of films whose protagonists are white, male, and who are in some way, beset by crisis. Two categories of identity are thus explored in this thesis, each of which possesses its own register of meaning, each of which requires (or seems to require) a particular approach in terms of the way that it is represented in film. These two categories are race and gender. In every sense then, this thesis seeks to take part in the dialogue which since the late eighties and particularly during the 1990’s, has formed around the idea that contemporary white masculinity is in crisis, and has sought to provide evidence both for and against that idea in the texts of contemporary popular culture. What this thesis aims to add to that dialogue, however, is a greater awareness of the way in which race functions in society and in cultural representations, as well as a better understanding of the extent to which its influence is discernible in the texts of contemporary British cinema alongside the trend towards portrayals of white masculine crisis. Employing a cultural studies trajectory throughout, this thesis draws on areas of whiteness and race theory, masculinity studies, film theory, culture and media studies, plus theories of representation, in presenting its arguments, and uses the tools of close textual analysis during the film readings that are its single largest element. Special emphasis is placed on situating both the arguments put forward and the films discussed in their appropriate cultural context, and the thesis frequently looks for parallels outside cinema as a means of illustrating key ideas. Ultimately, this thesis aims to increase the balance of the discussion on the subject of white masculine crisis by highlighting the first term in the phrase, and to better the understanding of contemporary British cinema in the process.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2380/1/Slack%2C_Neil_Graham.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>PN1993</dc:subject><dc:title>A cinema of white masculine crisis: race and gender in contemporary British film</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Slack, Neil Graham</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-03-23</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Firstly, a novel palladium catalysed oxidative fragmentation/cyclisation of the Z-but-2-ene-1,4-diol and anisole derived meta photocycloadduct 30 was investigated. It was proposed that a meso π-allyl palladium intermediate was generated during the course of the oxidative cyclisation process and it was hoped that a desymmetrisation reaction could be achieved by attaching a homochiral ligand to the palladium core and result in the enantioenrichment of the cyclised product. Unfortunately under the conditions used only a racemic mixture of products was obtained. Secondly, the use of nitrogen in exchange for oxygen in the oxidative cyclisation procedure was investigated with a view to preparing a conformationally constrained bicyclic amino acid. Installation of the amino group at the photocycloaddition stage failed and derivatisation of the hydroxyl group of the allyl alcohol/anisole derived photoadduct resulted in an undesired fragmentation. Acid induced fragmentation of the allyl alcohol/anisole derived photoadduct 25 and subsequent triflation of the hydroxyl followed by displacement with azide, reduction with Lindlar’s catalyst and protection, afforded the requisite amide. Cyclisation with phenylselenylchloride and concomitant oxidation furnished the cyclised amide. Finally, the total synthesis of gelsemine was investigated. Building on the results of a previous researcher in the group an advanced intermediate derived from the meta photocycloaddition of allyl alcohol/anisole failed to undergo the desired palladium catalysed alkoxycarbonylation to assemble the key quaternary centre of the oxindole group. Reaction of the allyl alcohol/anisole photoadduct with N-chlorosulfonyl isocyanate afforded an alternative route forward and subsequent synthetic modifications led to an attempted intramolecular Heck spirocyclisation reaction, which led to the formation of a spirooxindole centre that was epimeric to gelsemine. Utilisation of the diol photoadduct afforded functionality which would allow construction of the pyrrolidine ring prior to forming the spirooxindole centre. The same synthetic route was applied to afford the hydroxyl group, where epimerisation of the oxidised product, a further oxidation and Curtius rearrangement furnished the exo carbamate 154. The system now had the requisite functionality present to complete the total synthesis of gelsemine.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2381/1/Berritt%2C_Simon.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QD</dc:subject><dc:title>Synthetic applications of the meta photocycloaddition reaction</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Berritt, Simon</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-02-11</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

It addresses the question of why some fields of human endeavour can be seen to yield positive change more quickly than others. The thesis develops a perspective that views innovation as a cumulative learning process. It employs the notion of a ‘testing regime’ to draw attention to the role of testing in driving this carefully managed learning process during the development of vaccines. Repeated testing, under conditions that are varied using instruments and skill, generates knowledge that is reliable and robust for technological purposes. Governance is needed to co-ordinate this process of testing to ensure the resulting knowledge growth is shared and cumulative. This lens is used to explore the creation of intermediate conditions, the development of instrumentalities, and the role of governance in vaccine innovation processes. The thesis uses the notion of ‘social visions’ to explore how attention directed to poliomyelitis contrasted with neglect and apathy afforded to AIDS in its early manifestations. Shared, rather than competing, visions are found to play a significant role in setting the vaccine innovation process in motion. However, the thesis finds that key pathogenic features of the virus and certain ethical and safety stances make learning and the accumulation of technological knowledge inherently difficult. Importantly, the thesis finds policy measures can mitigate or exacerbate these learning challenges considerably. Whilst greater market support and increased research funding tend to be positive contributions to vaccine development, this research shows they are only part of what is needed to take ideas through to innovation. The empirical evidence gathered in this thesis, when viewed through the testing regime lens, suggests that science and innovation are distinct activities but their inter-relationships can be enhanced with the development of an infrastructure focussed on nurturing skills, fostering the use of new techniques, encouraging the development of new instruments, and implementing governance measures to co-ordinate testing efforts and resources.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2382/1/Yaqub%2C_Ohid.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>R1</dc:subject><dc:subject>RM</dc:subject><dc:title>Knowledge accumulation and vaccine innovation: lessons from polio and HIV/AIDS</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Yaqub, Ohid</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-04-26</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

It argues that the organisational systems and structures of coalition movements enable activists to accommodate very differently orientated protest positions and explores the ways in which coalition activists attempt to preserve political solidarity across difference. It then goes on to examine the ways in which coalition movements attract and then maintain the attention of wider publics. It suggests that coalition protest movements unsettle and renegotiate the boundaries which have traditionally constituted the public sphere and considers the political potential inherent in the fractured and fractious spaces which exist between the political margins and the mainstream. These intertwined arguments are organised around an examination of the protest strategies of various grass roots movements. These include groups which have retrospectively been characterised as coalitions such as the women’s peace movement and the anti-Criminal Justice Bill movement as well as those which are currently defined as coalitions such as the anti-globalisation movement and the anti-war movement. This research utilises a wide range of research methods including participant observation, content analysis, semi structured interviews and textual analysis. In this way these chapters construct a textured account of the ways in which protest coalition movements articulate dissent from the margins to the mainstream. Protest coalition movements have become increasingly active players in the formation of public opinion. These developments require academics to address the issues raised by the communicative strategies of protest coalition movements. This thesis endeavours to contribute to these debates by reflecting upon the ways in which the articulation of polyvocal dissent alters the on going relationship between activists and the wider public.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2383/1/Ruiz%2C_Pollyanna.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>JC</dc:subject><dc:subject>JA</dc:subject><dc:title>Articulating dissent from the margins to the mainstream: the communicative strategies of protest coalition</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Ruiz, Pollyanna E A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Recent years have witnessed unprecedented progress in observational and computational techniques and we now are able to quantify cosmological properties with unprecedented accuracy. My work builds upon this observational accuracy by establishing a connection with viable theoretical models. I focus on two specifics eras of the universe’s evolution, namely inflation and today’s cosmic acceleration. In the context of single field inflationary models I illustrate the relation between the spectra of curvature and gravitational wave perturbations. I conclude that their mutual interdependence extends beyond the usual amplitude consistency relation and can be traced all the way to infinite order of accuracy. This yields an infinite hierarchy of consistency relations between these spectra and their derivatives. On a observational perspective, using WMAP’s data, I explore the dependence of CMB constraints on inflation with the cosmological scale at which these are chosen to be presented. I develop a technique that allows for an appropriate choice of this scale and show that this way constraints may be improved by as much as 5 times. In the context of the particle physics motivated quintessence models I have looked at the ability of early universe probes - namely Big Bang Nucleosynthesis - for distinguishing between different dark energy proposals when combined with standard distance modulus or the Hubble rate techniques. I conclude that more yet more accurate measurements are required if observations are to successfully confirm or rule out these models as potential candidates against a cosmological constant. I also analyze possible effects that may mimic or underlie cosmic acceleration effects. I focus on a potential lack of knowledge of the precise values of particular cosmological parameters such as the curvature and matter content of the universe. I find that even a small uncertainty in any of this two quantities leads to significant bias on the reconstruction of dark energy properties, when typical probes like the distance luminosity and the Hubble rate are considered. I conclude that in order to disentangle between these effects a combination of distance and expansion history measurements is required.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2384/1/Cortes%2C_Marina.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QB</dc:subject><dc:subject>QC</dc:subject><dc:title>The old and new universe in the era of precision cosmology</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Cortês, Marina V</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-05-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

This dissertation examines the guidelines' scientific and social construction. Research questions centre upon what has become known as the 'threshold-intensity vs volume-energy expenditure debate': Is a minimum intensity of physical activity necessary to achieve significant beneficial health outcomes? Or can that effective 'dose' be achieved by accumulating a sufficient total volume of expenditure (kcals) -- regardless of its intensity? The research questions are: 1. Why were public health guidelines switched from a focus upon vigorous intensity to moderate intensity, and was the science base sufficiently sound and uncontested to justify that switch on scientific (and social scientific) grounds? 2. Why were the guidelines so focused on cardiovascular disease (CVD) to the relative exclusion of other health outcomes? 3. Did a small, influential group of investigators play a disproportionate (anomalous) role in shaping the 1996 US Surgeon General's Report on Physical Activity and Health? Conclusions: The US Surgeon General's Report switched public health focus from vigorous to moderate intensity activities on a proclaimed 'emerging consensus' of scientific evidence. However, the science base remained complex and contested. This 'consensus' was, in large measure, socially constructed by a small group of investigators who had gained influence within the American Heart Association, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, and then the very taskforce selected to write the Report. This dissertation explores a new and relevant area of 'Regulatory Science' given current interest in sedentary lifestyles and illness, not least cardiovascular disease and obesity. Anomalies in scientific interpretation and policy making arose not from financial considerations, but primarily from motives of altruism and professional status.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2385/1/Erlichman%2C_James_Rentschler.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>GV</dc:subject><dc:subject>RA0421</dc:subject><dc:title>The scientific and social construction of post-world war II US public health guidelines for physical activity: 1948-1996</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Erlichman, James Rentschler</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-08</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Previous critical debate has focused upon Spenser‟s debt to the classical traditions of epic, pastoral and georgic, and the work of Italian poets such as Ariosto, rather than considering the role played by more ephemeral and cheap English publications; my research helps to readdress this imbalance. By combining a close reading of Spenser‟s work with an analysis of widely available publications such as almanacs, books of husbandry, calendars, Elizabethan storybooks, the book of Raynarde the Foxe and the Golden Legend, I have endeavoured to open out Spenser‟s literary environment to include the popular. This has involved an analysis of popular publications in relation to theories of copia and encyclopaedic reading practices and demonstrates that Spenser was fascinated by the process of publication as well as the mental and physiological effects of reading. My research includes an analysis of the continuities between medieval and early modern texts, the body as text and the text as relic, the eye as a conduit for lust and iconographic creation, the problems of defining readership and reader response, the blurring of religious iconography across the boundaries of Protestant and Catholic expression, the mutability of time systems and the ramifications of counsel and censorship. This work contributes to studies concerned with the history of the book and the rise of print culture, while also adding to the critical body of Spenser studies. This thesis has an interdisciplinary focus and draws upon the work of historians such as Peter Burke, Tessa Watt and Elizabeth Eisenstein alongside works of literary criticism.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2386/1/Shinn%2C_Abigail_Naomi.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>PR</dc:subject><dc:title>Edmund Spenser and the popular press</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Shinn, Abigail Naomi</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-03-23</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Negative correlation is one such principle, and is the subject of this work. The main body of the work falls into three parts. The first part demonstrates the space filling and accelerated central limit convergence benefits of negative correlation, both generally and in the specific neural context of V1 receptive fields. I outline two new algorithms combining traditional ICA with a correlation objective function. Correlated component analysis seeks components with a given correlation matrix, while correlated basis analysis seeks basis functions with a given correlation matrix. The benefits of recovering components and basis functions with negative correlations are shown. The second part looks at the functional role of negative correlation for integrate- and-fire neurons in the context of suprathreshold stochastic resonance, for neurons receiving Poisson inputs modelled by a diffusion approximation. I show how the SSR effect can be seen in networks of spiking neurons, and further show how correlation can be used to control the noise level, and that optimal information transmission occurs for negatively correlated inputs when parameters take biophysically plausible values. The final part examines the question of how negative correlation may be implemented in the context of small networks of spiking neurons. Networks of integrate-and-fire neurons with and without lateral inhibitory connections are tested, and the networks with the inhibitory connections are found to perform better and show negatively correlated firing patterns. This result is extended to more biophysically detailed neuron and synapse models, highlighting the robust nature of the mechanism. Finally, the mechanism is explained as a threshold-unit approximation to non-threshold maximum likelihood signal/noise decomposition.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2387/1/Durrant%2C_Simon.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QA75</dc:subject><dc:title>Negative correlation in neural systems</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Durrant, Simon James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-04-26</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Rather than a recurrent motif, the storm is seen as protean: each play uses the storm in a singular way. The works of Shakespeare’s contemporaries are explored for comparison, whilst meteorological texts and accounts of actual storms are examined for context. Using close reading and theories of ecocriticism throughout, I show that Shakespeare’s storms are attentive to the environmental conditions of experience. Although the dominant practice of staging storms in early modern England is to suggest the supernatural, Shakespeare writes storms which operate quite differently. I argue that this is a compelling opportunity to see Shakespeare develop a complex engagement with audience expectations. Five plays are explored in separate chapters, each with respect to performative conditions and through close reading of the poetry. Firstly, I argue that the Globe’s opening in 1599 demanded a spectacular showcase, to which Julius Caesar responded, shaping the play’s language and staging. With King Lear (c.1605), the traditional, non-Shakespearean location of the heath betrays a tendency to misread the play in terms of location rather than event. King Lear’s storm withholds the supernatural, a manifestly different approach from that in Macbeth (c.1606); Shakespeare both adheres to and resists convention in this respect. The relationship between storm and the supernatural in Macbeth is shown to be fundamental to the play’s equivocation. Shakespeare’s next storm is in Pericles (c.1608), which also contains a storm by George Wilkins. The two writers’ approaches are explored with respect to the Bible, alluded to extensively throughout the play. Finally, with The Tempest (c.1611), I argue that Shakespeare’s manipulation of audience expectation through the storm demands a reading which combines the metatheatrical and the ecocritical. Foregrounded as expressions of dramatic and environmental awareness, I bring new insights to Shakespeare’s storms.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2388/1/Jones%2C_Gwilym_John.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>PR</dc:subject><dc:title>Shakespeare's storms</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Jones, Gwilym John</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-08</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

My research is based on a collaborative effort to document and examine how “interculturality” is realised as a “dialogue between equal actors and knowledges” in the creation of Indigenous and Intercultural Universities. It follows a multi-level analysis that begins by interrogating the diverse ways in which different education projects formulate and negotiate their “interculturality” in the Latin American region. It pays particular attention to the political dimensions of “dialogue” by examining the diverse engagements between social actors, discourses and agendas. Secondly, it focuses on the specific design and development of the Peasant and Indigenous University Network (UCI-Red for its Spanish acronym) as a case study. UCI-Red promotes and supports endogenous and sustainable development processes in different micro-regions of the Peninsula of Yucatan, Mexico. This is a collective project where Mexican Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) have become engaged and allied with Yucatec Mayan peasants. “Interculturality” has become one of the main principles of their definition of sustainable development and it has been assimilated into their practice of development promotion. After examining the intellectual trajectories and the perspectives on “culture”, “identity” and “learning” of the organisations involved in UCI-Red, I argue that a deeper understanding of cultural difference that goes beyond discursive and objectifying definitions of identity and knowledge is needed. Indigenous knowledge is a notion that involves not only concepts and principles but most importantly embodied forms of knowing, social and symbolic practices, and a particular ideal of personhood. Hybrid forms of learning can and must be constructed in continuity with these overlooked epistemologies if education projects want to commit to a true “dialogue between knowledges”.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2390/1/Llanes_Ortiz%2C_Genner_de_Jes%C3%BAs.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>LE</dc:subject><dc:subject>L1</dc:subject><dc:title>Indigenous universities and the construction of interculturality: the case of the Peasant and Indigenous University Network in Yucatan, Mexico</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Llanes Ortiz, Genner de Jesús</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-06-08</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

This represents the first major update of the XMM Cluster Survey since 2005. The candidate list comprises of 1365 entries with more than 300 detected counts distributed over 229 deg2. We note that a larger area (523 deg2) is available for the study of X-ray point sources and that the new XCS point source sample has more than 130,000 entries. After redshift follow-up and X-ray spectral analysis, these 1365 clusters will comprise the largest homogeneous sample of medium to high redshift X-ray clusters ever compiled. The future science applications of the XCS DR3 clusters include the study of the evolution of X-ray scaling relations and a measurement of cosmological parameters. In support of these science applications, we also present in this thesis detailed selection functions for the XCS. These selection functions allow us to quantify the number of clusters we didn’t detect in our survey regions. We have taken two approaches to the determination of the selection function: the use of simple (circular &amp; isothermal) β models and the use of ‘observations’ of synthetic clusters from the CLEF N-body simulation. The β model work has allowed us to explore how the selection function depends on key cluster parameters such as luminosity, temperature, redshift, core size and profile shape. We have further explored how the selection function depends on the underlying cosmological model and applied our results to XCS cosmology forecasting (Sahlen et al. 2009). The CLEF work has allowed us to explore more complex cluster properties, such as core temperature, core shape, substructure and ellipticity. In summary, the combination of the cluster catalogues and selection functions presented herein will facilitate field leading science applications for many years to come.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://srodev.sussex.ac.uk/2391/1/Hosmer%2C_Mark.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:subject>QB</dc:subject><dc:subject>QC</dc:subject><dc:title>The XMM Cluster Survey: a new cluster candidate sample and detailed selection function</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Hosmer, Mark A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-04-26</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Thesis</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>
