Design and Digital Research Seminar Series - Thirst: adventures in VR, infrasonics and environmental empathy

Design and Digital Research Seminar Series - Thirst: adventures in VR, infrasonics and environmental empathy

The VR project "Thirst" utilises VR technology, stylised 3D animated graphics and an infrasonic score to draw attention to the activity of flora and fauna within the soil. It is hoped that the embodied sensory experiences that immersion in such VR experiences afford will contribute to a broader cultivation of environmental sensitivity and ultimately wise management of precious natural resources such as water.
Griffith Asia Institute Research Seminar: Myanmar's armed forces and the Rohingya crisis

Griffith Asia Institute Research Seminar: Myanmar's armed forces and the Rohingya crisis

Despite the high hopes that followed the 2015 elections, Myanmar has stepped back into its dark past. This poses real challenges for the international community.

Drawing on his recent report for the United States Institute of Peace, Dr Andrew Selth argues that unless attitudes inside Myanmar shift significantly, a fair and durable solution to the Rohingya question, let alone a full, public and legal accounting for past events, will remain a distant prospect.
