Melabārna Ebaṃ Kalakātāẏa Ṭrāma Kalpanā, Ṭramayātrā Mick Douglas 2005 An unprecedented inter-cultural arts project called Tramjatra has since 1996 brought together artists and the tramways communities of Melbourne (Australia) & Kolkata (Calcutta, India) to explore their cities through the medium of tramways. Through a time when Kolkata s struggling tramways have faced a persistent threat of closure and the operation of Melbourne s tramways has been privatised and automated, the Tramjatra project has provoked a broader, globally oriented engagement in what it is to move and be moved in contemporary urban life. The book explores this relationship between the movement afforded by tramways as a mode of public transport, and the contemporary social, political, economic and creative forces of movement that are manifested in the relation between these two contemporary cultures of tramways. Supplemented with stunning visuals, this unique volume offers a journey through two cities and a contemporary relation between them via the medium of tramways.

The Narrow Gauge Nick Anchen 2012 The Victorian Railways narrow gauge lines portrayed the very essence of the Australian pioneering spirit, with their ingeniously constructed routes traversing picturesque, forested and rugged country. Built in the era of the horse and cart, when railways had a monopoly over the conveyance of freight and passenger alike, the narrow gauge lines served their purpose, before being rapidly overtaken by road transport. With their toy-like appearance, the little trains were beloved by children, and this factor was to bring about their salvation. Through the valiant actions of a few spirited individuals, Victoria's narrow gauge heritage lives on, with the re-born Gembrook and Walhalla lines among the most revered and admired railways in Australia. The Narrow Gauge is a comprehensive coffee table style book, a fitting salute to a fascinating chapter in Victoria's history - the story of four character-filled railways, from their inception, through to present day operations and relics.The history of the Victorian Railways narrow gauge lines - Wangaratta to Whitfield, Upper Ferntree Gully to Gembrook, Colac to Beech Forest and Crowes, and Moe to Walhalla - from construction right through to closure.

Aeromobilities Saulo Cwerner 2009-01-13 Aeromobilities is a collection of essays that tackle in many different ways the growing importance of aviation and air travel in our hypermobile, globalized world. Providing a multidisciplinary focus on issues ranging from global airports to the production of airspace, from airline work to helicopters, and from movement in airports to software systems, Aeromobilities seeks to enhance our understanding of space, time and mobility in the age of mass air travel. From Sao Paulo to Sydney, Aeromobilities draws on local experiences of airspaces to generate theory and research that are global in scope. It is the first book of its kind, bringing together a wide range of theoretical and methodological approaches to aviation and air travel in the social sciences and humanities, while emphasizing the central role of aeromobilities in contemporary social relations. In a world where virtually every aspect of social life is touched upon, in one way or another, by the complex global network of airline flows, with its large passenger aircraft and iconic international airports, Aeromobilities provides innovative analyses of some of the most fundamental and influential mobility networks of our time.
Comeng John Dunn 2013 This book continues with the history of the Australian company Commonwealth Engineering (Comeng), from 1977 - where the previous volume left off - and carrying the story through to 1985. This period of Comeng's history was highly productive though unquestionably turbulent. One of the highlights of Comeng's New South Wales branch was the design and construction of the XPT trains for Australia's State Rail Authority in the early 1980s. The introduction of the XPT trains represented a quantum leap in the development of modern long-distance passenger trains in Australia. The book offers an appreciation of the political, commercial, and engineering hurdles that were associated with such a complex project. At the same time, in Victoria, a huge contract for new electric multiple-unit suburban trains was an equally important milestone - it was for the introduction of modern commuter passenger stock. From the 1960s onward, Comeng had progressively diversified into activities that were not railway-based. These included the manufacture of engineering products and the sale under license of a wide range of equipment used in Australia's construction, manufacturing, and mining industries. In addition to its wholly owned operations, Comeng had acquired substantial investments in Bradken Consolidated Limited, Union Carriage & Wagon Co. Pty Ltd, and Australian National Industries. Then, in 1982, Comeng was suddenly taken over by Australian National Industries. This was a turning point in the company's fortunes and set in motion events that would see the ultimate demise of this robust and well-respected group of Australian manufacturing companies. Throughout this period, all the rolling stock plants were fully occupied, turning out passenger trains, trams, light rail vehicles, diesel railcars, locomotives, freight stock, and a host of other smaller, but nonetheless important, products.

Hong Kong Culture and Society in the New Millennium Yiu-Wai Chu 2017-03-15 This book discusses the notion of “Hong Kong as Method” as it relates to the rise of China in the context of Asianization. It explores new Hong Kong imaginaries with regard to the complex relationship between the local, the national and the global. The major theoretical thrust of the book is to address the reconfiguration of Hong Kong’s culture and society in an age of global modernity from the standpoints of different disciplines, exploring the possibilities of approaching Hong Kong as a method. Through critical inquiries into different fields related to Hong Kong’s culture and society, including gender, resistance and minorities, various perspectives on the country’s culture and society can be re-assessed. New directions and guidelines related to Hong Kong are also presented, offering a unique resource for researchers and students in the fields of cultural studies, media studies, postcolonial studies, globalization and Asian studies.
