Exploring the Unknown: Levinas and International Students in English Higher Education
(Taylor and Francis, 2009)
This article will start with a description of a small, pedagogic event: a snippet of conversation recorded in a classroom as part of a research project on working in groups with postgraduate students. I will use these few ...

Discovery of very high energy gamma rays from pks 1424+240 and multiwavelength constraints on its redshift
(IOP Publishing, 2009-12-18)
We report the first detection of very high energy(83) (VHE) gamma-ray emission above 140 GeV from PKS 1424+240, a BL Lac object with an unknown redshift. The photon spectrum above 140 GeV measured by VERITAS is well described ...
Observation of extended very high energy emission from the supernova remnant ic 443 with veritas
(IOP Publishing, 2009-06-01)
We present evidence that the very high energy (VHE, E &gt; 100 GeV) gamma-ray emission coincident with the supernova remnant IC 443 is extended. IC 443 contains one of the best studied sites of supernova remnant/molecular ...
Radio imaging of the very-high-energy -ray emission region in the central engine of a radio galaxy
(American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2009-07-02)
The accretion of matter onto a massive black hole is believed to feed the relativistic plasma jets found in many active galactic nuclei (AGN). Although some AGN accelerate particles to energies exceeding 10(12) electron ...
Simultaneous multiwavelength observations of markarian 421 during outburst
(IOP Publishing, 2009-08-26)
We report on the results of two coordinated multiwavelength campaigns that focused on the blazar Markarian 421 during its 2006 and 2008 outbursts. These campaigns obtained UV and X-ray data using the XMM-Newton satellite, ...
Multiwavelength observations of a tev-flare from w comae
(IOP Publishing, 2009-11-24)
We report results from an intensive multiwavelength campaign on the intermediate-frequency-peaked BL Lacertae object W Com (z = 0.102) during a strong outburst of very high energy gamma-ray emission in 2008 June. The very ...
Multiwavelength observations of ls i +61° 303 with veritas,swift, andrxte
(IOP Publishing, 2009-07-08)
We present results from a long-term monitoring campaign on the TeV binary LSI +61 degrees 303 with VERITAS at energies above 500 GeV, and in the 2-10 keV hard X-ray bands with RXTE and Swift, sampling nine 26.5 day orbital ...
