Panel 5 Paper 5.1 Egyptian Rural Practices: Living Heritage And Musealization, Mohamed Badry Kamel Basuny Amer M.A.

Rural Heritage - Landscapes and Beyond / PATRIMOINE RURAL: Paysages et au-delà

Rural heritage is a complicated cultural knowledge. Considering the visitors who come, to the living heritage sites, spending their spare time and at the same time, to get a piece of new knowledge in a nostalgic context, the heritage exhibition is the ideal EDUTAINMENTAL deliverable that could transmit the rural heritage knowledge using the interactive thinking methodology. The former approach creates a kind of curiosity for the visitors guaranteeing the life-long learning process. Therefore, reviewing the cultural significance of intangible cultural heritage, especially the manifestations of the rural socio-cultural heritage practices, the research paper aims at presenting a new aspect ...


“Water Is A Human Right”: Exploring The Paradox Of Framing Water As A Human Right In A Hostile Political Climate, Sabrina Kozikis Oct 2019

“Water Is A Human Right”: Exploring The Paradox Of Framing Water As A Human Right In A Hostile Political Climate, Sabrina Kozikis

Conference: The Social Practice of Human Rights

Many communities across the United States experience challenges in accessing clean and affordable water. In response, civil society and grassroots organizations are using a human rights framework to advocate for safe and affordable services for all. This is a curious trend, given that the United States is a country in which human rights, specifically socio-economic rights, are not recognized as relevant for domestic policy and even met with hostility. This study explores this tension: why do civil society actors, grassroots organizers, and national level advocates in the United States use a human rights framework to advocate for access to clean ...

Gambling-Related Harms And The Use Of The Responsible Gambling Tools: Gambling Harms 2016 Surveys, Sari Castrén May 2019

Gambling-Related Harms And The Use Of The Responsible Gambling Tools: Gambling Harms 2016 Surveys, Sari Castrén

International Conference on Gambling & Risk Taking

In January 2017, three Finnish gambling operators were merged into a single company. The Gambling Harms-surveys aim are to study gambling, gambling-related harm and exposure to gambling marketing before and after the merger. These results are based on the situation before the merger. Finnish gambling operators provide responsible gambling tools for gamblers to assist gamblers to keep the gambling limit in control. This study evaluates the awareness and use of the currently available tools. The randomly sampled population-based first wave data was collected between January-March 2017 (n=7 186, response rate 36%). In addition, we collected the data (n=119 ...

Variations In Coparenting And Parenting Functioning Among At-Risk Couples Following Participation In Couples Relationship Education, Rachael Nagy, Ted Futris, Evin Richardson Apr 2019

Variations In Coparenting And Parenting Functioning Among At-Risk Couples Following Participation In Couples Relationship Education, Rachael Nagy, Ted Futris, Evin Richardson

Southeastern Council on Family Relations Conference

Couple relationships directly affect parenting practices, which in turn affect outcomes for children. More so, at-risk couples are more prone to exhibit conflictual relationships, elevated parenting stress, and behaviors that increase their children’s vulnerability to negative physical, emotional, and behavioral outcomes. Couples relationship education (CRE) programs have been found to positively influence couple functioning, which in turn has been linked to improved parenting behaviors. Supported by a federal grant, Project F.R.E.E.(www.ugaprojectfree.com) provides CRE to at-risk parents engaged in child welfare services in order to improve couple and co-parenting functioning. This presentation will share ...


How Space Affects Perception In St. Louis, Alexis Cushshon Apr 2019

How Space Affects Perception In St. Louis, Alexis Cushshon

Kansas State University Undergraduate Research Conference

Space: the distance from other people or things that a person needs in order to remain comfortable (Merriam-Webster "Space" 2018). When looking at space, especially in a neighborhood; it is important to have safe and habitable spaces to create positive social interaction and dialogue. “Our moods and emotions color the lenses—including “moral lenses”—through which we see the world … and by extension also architecture, can have a non-negligible influence on mood and emotion and…this is true not only with individual structures but with, for instance, entire layouts of a community or with landscapes” (Haji, Cuypers, & Joye 2013). In ...


Early Communicative Characteristics Across Samples From Two Infant Populations At-Risk For Autism, Hannah Lopez, Shari Deveney, Anastasia Kyvelidou Mar 2019

Early Communicative Characteristics Across Samples From Two Infant Populations At-Risk For Autism, Hannah Lopez, Shari Deveney, Anastasia Kyvelidou

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

Although no single etiology has been identified for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), two infant populations have emerged as particularly high risk: younger siblings of children diagnosed with ASD and infants born prematurely with low birth weight. A key characteristic differentiating high-risk infants from low-risk peers is early eye gaze fixation behaviors. Early gaze fixation behavior is thought to be predictive of communication and language skills. Consequently, identifying differences in early eye gaze behaviors could lead to early intervention services tailored specifically on counteracting early social withdrawal behaviors. Though few studies have compared eye-gaze patterns of these two high-risk infant groups ...

Tumbling Into A Crisis: Use Of Corporate Apologia After Usa Gymnastics Falls Off The Balance Beam, Terry L. Rentner, Cory Young

International Crisis and Risk Communication Conference

In an open letter to U.S. gymnasts on Nov. 5, 2018, United States Olympic Committee (USOC) CEO Sarah Hirshland told its more than 150,000 members “You deserve better” as it launched the Nuclear Clause that would revoke USA Gymnastics (USAG) as a governing body for the sport at the Olympic level [1]. This announcement comes in the wake of USAG’s ongoing crisis that includes a failure to protect athletes from team doctor Larry Nassar, imprisoned for sexually abusing more than 350 female gymnasts; investigations tied to Michigan State University; and the turnover of several USAG CEO’s ...

In 2015, world leaders and the United Nations agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the goal to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us - governments, businesses, civil society, and the general public - to work together to build a better future for everyone. We investigated if these goals are actually achievable within the next years. We also wanted to find out if the people of the Netherlands were aware of these goals, and if they would do something to contribute to ...


Emotional Intelligence: The Effect On Social Media Use, Interpersonal Violence, And Gender, Gail Grabczynski Apr 2018

Emotional Intelligence: The Effect On Social Media Use, Interpersonal Violence, And Gender, Gail Grabczynski

Scholar Week 2016 - present

This study investigated the relationship between Emotional Intelligence (EI), social media use, interpersonal violence and gender. EI is a relatively new topic of research that has been of interest to many organizations due to the proposition that EI assists in the development of individuals. With the proliferation of social media, interpersonal violence and women in the workforce, a determination of a relationship between EI and those variables was warranted. The study was conducted at a small private Christian university. An online survey was administered to 123 sophomores. This study was a cross-sectional quantitative design, that utilized three established instruments to ...


Spirituality: Relationship Between Grit, Equanimity, Spiritual Qualities And First-Generation College Students, Janett Cordoves Apr 2018

Spirituality: Relationship Between Grit, Equanimity, Spiritual Qualities And First-Generation College Students, Janett Cordoves

Scholar Week 2016 - present

This study investigated the relationship between spirituality and first-generation, undergraduate and graduate college students’ grit, equanimity, and spiritual qualities. The researcher, a higher education professional, sought to highlight spirituality, not religion, as an intervention method for first-generation college students’ retention and success at the university. The results indicated a significant relationship between first-generation college students’ level of grit and equanimity as well as a direct relationship between grit and spiritual qualities. These results help inform educators and highlight that first-generation college students are both resilient as well as calm and centered in the midst of adversity and uncertainty. Participants’ narratives ...


The Purpose Of Animals According To Mark And Athanasius, Caroline Herzog Apr 2018

The Purpose Of Animals According To Mark And Athanasius, Caroline Herzog

Carroll College Student Undergraduate Research Festival

Religion affects how groups of people view animals, and these views can vary between writers within the same religion. Both the author of the Gospel of Mark and the author of “The Incarnation of the Word of God” present animals as subordinate to humans, revealing hierarchies within the cultures of their original audiences. The Gospel of Mark offers a more inclusive view of animals than “The Incarnation of the Word of God” by inferring that the purpose of animals is for human use and to reveal God, whereas Athanasius believes their purpose is solely to offer a foil to the ...


Service Learning At Cleveland Clinic, Julie Novario Apr 2018

Service Learning At Cleveland Clinic, Julie Novario

Undergraduate Research Symposium

In the fall semester of 2017 I had a service-learning experience at the Cleveland Clinic Solon Family Health Center. The Family Health Center had a problem getting patients to return for vaccinations, especially the multiple series vaccines. Because the center lacked time and resources, I was able to intern with them to assist and help improve the vaccination rates. I reviewed the files and information regarding vaccinations and developed a protocol for calling patients. These phone calls were used for setting vaccination appointments as well as educating patients on vaccines. Another project I worked on was assisting patients with living ...

Background: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a type of Dementia and a neurodegenerative disease that is characterized by the gradual degrading of both memory and cognitive functions. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the prevalence of AD is increasing globally. Currently, AD is the sixth leading cause of mortality in the United States. As the ageing population increases in the United States, it is possible that AD will move up the ladder in the top cause of mortality. Although the prevalence of AD in most urban parts of developed nations such as the United States is widely known, little ...


Roundtable: Supporting Professional Masters' Programs In Social Science And Policy Fields, Elisabeth Shields Mar 2018

Roundtable: Supporting Professional Masters' Programs In Social Science And Policy Fields, Elisabeth Shields

Transforming Libraries for Graduate Students

Professional masters programs in the social sciences and policy fields prepare participants for middle and senior positions in the private sector, government, non-profits, and international organizations. In addition to ensuring further disciplinary knowledge, programs often include components on managerial, organizational, communication, policy analysis, and similar skills. Institutions are adding programs in interdisciplinary and emerging areas to their existing professional programs in business, counseling psychology, social work, and public administration.

Librarians face distinctive challenges in supporting such programs. Faculty teaching in these programs may be adjuncts unfamiliar with their institution’s library offerings and services. Some students have just completed undergraduate ...

Phonemic Switching In Single And Dual Task Environments, Angeline L. Roth Mar 2018

Phonemic Switching In Single And Dual Task Environments, Angeline L. Roth

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

Deficits in the frontal lobes are the first and earliest signs of cognitive aging. Older adults activate the frontal regions in the brain that are not active in younger adults for performance on the same tasks. Verbal fluency is just one way to test cognitive functioning, with both phonemic (letters) and semantic (categories) fluencies used for testing. More specifically in dual task research, different age, education, and various cognitive abilities such as working memory, selective attention, episodic memory, executive control, and speed and information processing, while also engaging in the motor task of walking have provided various results based on ...


A Holistic Framework Of A Brand's Hierarchical Motivations For Retail Internationalization, Danielle Sponder Testa, Young-A Lee Jan 2018

A Holistic Framework Of A Brand's Hierarchical Motivations For Retail Internationalization, Danielle Sponder Testa, Young-A Lee

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

In this study, we propose a holistic framework of a brand's hierarchical motivations for retail internationalization (RI) in order to understand motivational levels for RI and interpret how their interrelationship leads to the success or failure of brands in RI. The framework was derived from Maslow's hierarchy of needs and demonstrates different levels of RI motivations including economic, competitive, psychological, and brand actualization which build upon one another towards an all-inclusive RI strategy. This framework also discusses the mediator of cultural intelligence and moderator of cultural convergence, which influence the significance of each motivation on brand success. The ...

The Role Of Dress In Objectification Research: An Opportunity For Dress Researchers, Sharron J. Lennon, Kim K. Johnson Jan 2018

The Role Of Dress In Objectification Research: An Opportunity For Dress Researchers, Sharron J. Lennon, Kim K. Johnson

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

We focus on relationships between the concepts of dress and objectification. A two-pronged definition of dress is all modifications of and supplements to the body. Objectification occurs when a person is reduced to the status of an object for others’ sexual use.

Objectification Theory proposes that girls and women living in media-saturated Western cultures are gazed at, evaluated, and potentially objectified by others. When women and girls are objectified by others, they may self-objectify; or internalize an outsider’s perspective and see themselves as objects to be evaluated for their physical attributes. We show that dress has been used in ...

'Just For You': Unveiling The Traits Of The Mass-Customized Clothing Shoppers, Gargi Bhaduri, Jihyun Kim

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

In this study, we aim to address characteristics of young adult consumers' who had an experience of purchasing mass-customized products in comparison to the counterparts, to draw pragmatic implications for the mass customized clothing industry. An online survey was administered to adult undergraduates in a fashion program at a major US university. Out of 388 usable responses (95.6% female), there were 251 participants who had previously purchased a mass customized clothing, and 137 who had not. Two-group (purchasers/non-purchasers) independent samples t-tests revealed that purchasers of mass customized clothing were more involved in fashion, and were also more hedonically ...

Overview Of Current Human Rights Challenges In The Philippines And The People’S Response, Angie M. Gonzales Nov 2017

Overview Of Current Human Rights Challenges In The Philippines And The People’S Response, Angie M. Gonzales

Conference: The Social Practice of Human Rights

The Philippines is an agricultural resource-rich country in Southeast Asia but whose economy and society remain dictated by foreign interests and local elite while the majority are steeped in worsening poverty and inequality.

It is thus not surprising that it is host to the longest-running revolution in Asia. The decades-old armed rebellion has been waged among national liberation forces, notably the Communist Party of the Philippines - New People’s Army - National Democratic Front of the Philippines (CPP-NPA-NDFP) and Moro forces — the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF).

Successive Philippine regimes have employed militarist approaches ...

W.H.Y. Campaign - We Hear You: Improving Mental Health In College Freshman, Julie Novario, Jessica M. Lockhart, Abigail E. Day, Emily Eichhorn

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Depression and anxiety in college freshman is growing quickly from 10 to 15 percent in the 1980’s to 33 to 40 percent today. Through research on previous interventions and statistics collected from colleges across the United States, we have determined that mental illness on college campuses goes unrecognized. Almost 73 percent of students living with a mental health condition have experienced a mental health crisis on a college campus. Concern of stigma is the number one reason students do not seek help. In light of these findings we have developed an intervention to implement in freshman courses and residence ...
