University of Queensland
The University of Queensland generally follows the Cambridge pattern for its Academic regalia, in terms of the pattern of its hoods and gowns. Previous to the current highly simplified colour coding system, a more complex course based colour system existed. These revisions took place during 1998 with the changes being visible in the graduating classes of 1999. With the merger of the Queensland College of Agriculture at Gatton in 1990, a series of other complications arose with the Gatton Council wearing robes unique to them. However with the disbanding of the Gatton council circa-2005 their dress regulations have passed into university history.

Famous quotes containing the words university of and/or university:
“Television ... helps blur the distinction between framed and unframed reality. Whereas going to the movies necessarily entails leaving ones ordinary surroundings, soap operas are in fact spatially inseparable from the rest of ones life. In homes where television is on most of the time, they are also temporally integrated into ones real life and, unlike the experience of going out in the evening to see a show, may not even interrupt its regular flow.”
—Eviatar Zerubavel, U.S. sociologist, educator. The Fine Line: Making Distinctions in Everyday Life, ch. 5, University of Chicago Press (1991)
“In bourgeois society, the French and the industrial revolution transformed the authorization of political space. The political revolution put an end to the formalized hierarchy of the ancien regimé.... Concurrently, the industrial revolution subverted the social hierarchy upon which the old political space was based. It transformed the experience of society from one of vertical hierarchy to one of horizontal class stratification.”
—Donald M. Lowe, U.S. historian, educator. History of Bourgeois Perception, ch. 4, University of Chicago Press (1982)
