Framing and frame shifting in a higher education merger
MetadataShow full item record
Late in 1996, Kalgoorlie College and the Western Australian School of Mines inWestern Australia were merged to form an expanded campus of Curtin University, based in the state capital city of Perth. This paper uses a frame analytical approach to examining how differing and competing interpretations and commitments affected how the merger was played out. Three important frames, each of which had a major influence on the merger for periods of time are identified: one that emphasised regional social and economic development, another centred on education for industry and a third based on economic rationalism. This analysis connects changes in the direction of the merger to shifts in the way the merger was framed.

A CO-rich merger shaping a powerful and hyperluminous infrared radio galaxy at z = 2: The Dragonfly GalaxyEmonts, B.; Mao, M.; Stroe, A.; Pentericci, L.; Villar-Martín, M.; Norris, R.; Miley, G.; De Breuck, C.; Van Moorsel, G.; Lehnert, M.; Carilli, C.; Röttgering, H.; Seymour, Nick; Sadler, E.; Ekers, R.; Drouart, G.; Feain, I.; Colina, L.; Stevens, J.; Holt, J. (2015)In the low-redshift Universe, the most powerful radio sources are often associated with gas-rich galaxy mergers or interactions. We here present evidence for an advanced, gas-rich (‘wet’) merger associated with a powerful ...
