Women On And Off Farms, Aneeja Guttikonda Jan 2001

Women On And Off Farms, Aneeja Guttikonda

aneeja guttikonda

Women are an integral force in India's agricultural system, yet their efforts go largely unrecognized. Not only are there a large number of untrained women working on farms, there are also many skilled, educated women in the field of agriculture. Linkages between professional women in the field of agriculture and rural women are needed to ensure real development of India's agricultural economy.

Negotiating Academic And Personal Selves (Chapter 4 Of The Book Between Gay And Straight: Understanding Friendship Across Sexual Orientation), Lisa M. Tillmann Ph.D.

Faculty Publications

“Negotiating Academic and Personal Selves” is Chapter 4 of the book Between Gay and Straight: Understanding Friendship Across Sexual Orientation (AltaMira Press, 2001). Here I show how my relationships with the gay men of my research community alter how I position myself in graduate courses, how I practice research, how I write, and how I teach my classes. As a student, I delve into new projects on sexual orientation and identity; as an instructor, I alter course reading lists, assignments, and activities. This chapter also moves through my increasingly problematic encounters with associates who identify as heterosexual. My new consciousness ...

Recognizing nonverbal messages of pain in a health care setting is essential. The nonverbal communication of pain is a communication aspect typically overlooked in modern health care environments.

Massage therapists and chiropractors from a Midwest county filled out surveys and participated in a focus group. Fifty nonverbal pain indicators, such as guarding body parts, postural inequalities, gait, and clenched fists, among others, were charted. Several other topics such as learning how to determine nonverbal pain indicators ...

En Forma Después De Los 50, Francisco Soto Mas

Francisco Soto Mas

De forma habitual uno se olvida de la salud, y sólo nos acordamos de ella cuando la echamos de menos. El trabajo, la familia y en general, la falta de tiempo son las razones esgrimidas por aquellos que no se mantienen físicamente activos. Lo recomendable es hacer ejercicio desde pequeños, pero para aquellos que llegan tarde, lo que pretendemos con este libro es concienciarles de que todavía están a tiempo de ponerse en forma. A través de una doble visión, por un lado la de la medicina y por otro la educación física, hemos intentado informar sobre las enfermedades más ...


Narrative's Virtues, Art Bochner Dec 2000

Narrative's Virtues, Art Bochner

Art Bochner

Reacting to the charge that personal narratives, especially illness narratives, constitute a “blind alley” that misconstrues the essential nature of narrative by substituting a therapeutic for a sociological view of the person, this article speaks back to critics who regard narratives of suffering as privileged, romantic, and/or hyperauthentic. The author argues that this critique of personal narrative rests on an idealized and discredited theory of inquiry, a monolithic conception of ethnographic inquiry, a distinctly masculine characterization of sociology, and a veiled resistance to the moral, political, existential, and therapeutic goals of this work. Layering his responses to the critique ...
