Re-visioning Research and Knowledge for the 21st Century

By Bernadette Walker-Gibbs, Bruce Allen Knight


This collection brings together research studies conducted by research higher degree students in Central Queensland University's Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Education. The theme for this year's collection reflects the current debates around the impact and diversity of the knowledge economy with/in research circles in a global scale.

The underlying issues in this collection provide a variety of theoretical perspectives and experiences that clearly demonstrate the way in which the postgraduate students of this Faculty are well positioned to provide a critical debate about our collective futures in the 21st Century.
