Musical Islands: Exploring Connections between Music, Place and Research
Editor: Elizabeth Mackinlay, Brydie-Leigh Bartleet and Katelyn Barney
Date Of Publication: Jun 2009
The island is a powerful metaphor in everyday speech which extends almost naturally into several academic disciplines, including musicology. Islands are imagined as isolated and unique places where strange, exotic, different and unexpected treasures can be found by daring adventurers. The magic inherent within this positioning of islands as places of discovery is an aspect which permeates the theoretical, methodological and analytical boundaries of this edited book. Showcasing the breadth of current musicological research in Australia and New Zealand, this edited collection offers a range of subtle and innovative reflections on this concept both in established and well-charted territories of music research.

From Teaching Psychology around the World: Volume 3
“McCarthy states in the preface that the book intends to 'be a current overview of teaching and learning psychology around the world', and this intention is certainly met. While no book can detail absolutely everything going on in psychology teaching and learning, this book really does give a comprehensive overview of current practice in different countries, and also looks to the future in terms of internationalising teaching across the globe. The book is a must-have for those with a keen interest in psychology teaching and learning who want to be kept abreast of current happenings in the field, perhaps for inspiration for their own teaching or just for interest. As academics, we need to be inspired to produce exciting, innovative ways of passing on our enthusiasm for psychology to others, and this book really highlights that through its collection of teaching practices from across the world.”
