Dementia And Dementia Care: The Contributions Of A Psychosocial Perspective, Phyllis Braudy Harris

Sociology

The social sciences have and continue to play a unique role in the study of dementia and dementia care. For central to the social sciences, particularly the discipline of sociology is a history of critical inquiry that challenges long held societal assumptions, a concern for issues of social justice, social exclusion and the treatment of marginalized populations. All significant areas to consider when caring for a person with dementia. This chapter will trace the development of the study of dementia and dementia care starting with its biomedical roots, examine the contributions of the social sciences in furthering the conceptual development ...


Identidade E Representação Em Pequenas Estórias: O Caso De Imigrantes Brasileiros, Mércia Regina Santana Flannery 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Identidade E Representação Em Pequenas Estórias: O Caso De Imigrantes Brasileiros, Mércia Regina Santana Flannery

Departmental Papers (Romance Languages)

O objetivo deste trabalho é analisar narrativas de discriminação não-canônicas, segundo o modelo laboviano, mas que se conformam ao que Georgakopoulou (2007) classifica como “pequenas estórias”. Dada a variedade de situações em que o discurso narrativo emerge, tal análise parte da premissa de que o alargamento da definição do que é uma narrativa proporciona inovações teóricas, fundamentais para a compreensão de interações que se renovam à medida que se renovam também os espaços interacionais. Analisamos pequenas estórias de discriminação contra imigrantes brasileiros, colhidas em um fórum de opinião on line, ao passo que salientamos como noções de identidade de grupo ...


Para-Romantic Love And Para-Friendships: Development And Assessment Of A Multiple-Parasocial Relationships Scale, Riva Tukachinsky 2010 Chapman University

Para-Romantic Love And Para-Friendships: Development And Assessment Of A Multiple-Parasocial Relationships Scale, Riva Tukachinsky

Communication Faculty Articles and Research

Parasocial-relationships (PSR) are viewers' imaginary relationships with media personae. Despite the growing body of research on PSR, the field is still lacking a clear conceptualization and precise measure of this phenomenon. The present study suggests a novel theorization of PSR as para-friendship and para-love. Study 1 demonstrates construct validity of a new Multiple-PSR scale using the logic of a multi-trait multi-method approach. Study 2 replicates the factorial solution using confirmatory factor analysis. Finally, Study 3 provides evidence for the criterion validity of the scales. Together, these findings suggest that PSR encompass several types of relationships that might mediate different media ...

The Use Of Sms [Text Messaging] And Language Transformation In Bangladesh, Abu Sadat Nurullah 2010 University of Alberta

The Use Of Sms [Text Messaging] And Language Transformation In Bangladesh, Abu Sadat Nurullah

Abu Sadat Nurullah

The aim of the present paper is to explore the evolution of language in SMS-mediated communication among Bangladeshis, particularly among university students. Key findings indicate that the majority of respondents (69.7%) send 1-5 text messages (SMS) on an average each day, followed by 22.7% who send 6-10 SMS per day; that most young people (49.7%) mix up Bengali and English (known as Benglish) languages (also, Hindi and other languages) while typing SMS on their mobile phones; that most respondents (64.0%) do not follow the rules of capitalization while typing SMS; that most respondents (67.7%) use ...


The Difference Between You And Me: Faculty Identities At Play In The Classroom, Suzanne M. Buglione, Jennifer Safford-Farquharson 2010 Worcester State College

The Difference Between You And Me: Faculty Identities At Play In The Classroom, Suzanne M. Buglione, Jennifer Safford-Farquharson

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

This conversation is a further discussion of the 2010 Center for Inclusive Teaching Conference on Teaching for Transformation presentation made by the authors, which focused on how classroom learning is influenced by faculty and student identities and the resulting identity-based dynamics. In the spirit of the great Freire/Horton conversation, this dialogue engaged the two authors, one a middle-aged white woman and the other a young black woman. The conversation reflects the authors’ faculty experiences coteaching and teaching individually in higher education while engaging relevant literature as well.


Toward A Non-Eurocentric Social Psychology: The Contribution Of The Yogacara, James William Coleman 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Toward A Non-Eurocentric Social Psychology: The Contribution Of The Yogacara, James William Coleman

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

The social psychological paradigm created by Western social science has virtually ignored the worlds’ other most highly developed system of psychological theorizing. This paper argues that an understanding of Buddhist psychology and especially its most sophisticated school, the Yogacara, can provide the basis for an independent confirmation of Western social psychology’s fundamental insights, a means to reduce its Eurocentric bias, and a way to expand its theoretical breath within a more thoroughly integrated framework. Toward this end, a comparative analysis of Yogacara psychology is presented which highlights the similarities and differences with the interactionist tradition—two schools of thought ...


Culturelessness And Culture Shock: An American-Asian Experience, Tara Cianfrocca 2010 University of Massachusetts Boston

Culturelessness And Culture Shock: An American-Asian Experience, Tara Cianfrocca

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Even though I identify myself as an American Asian, I struggle with racial issues regarding my adoption. Throughout my childhood and into my adulthood I noticed how popular transnational adoption is, and how common the white American parents and Asian baby combination is today. I wholeheartedly love my adoptive parents but I live with the constant feeling of abandonment. It is a topic that I do not discuss with my friends and family; it is rather taboo and makes most people feel uncomfortable because they cannot relate to me, but then, who do I have to relate to? It seems ...


From Construction To Social Work: Finding Value In Helping Others, Albert Marks 2010 University of Massachusetts Boston

From Construction To Social Work: Finding Value In Helping Others, Albert Marks

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

I ultimately ended up leaving the carpenter’s union to go back to school. However I shifted my goals away from business and construction management to focus on the field of sociology. By getting a degree in sociology I can come closer to realizing my work utopia, what I imagine to be the perfect balance of work and quality of life. In the future I see myself involved in some type of social work. I realize that social work does not pay as much as construction management, contracting, or other fields of work; however it appeals to me in the ...


The Loss Of A Culture With An Accent: A Sociological Reflection On My Assimilation Into The American Culture, Dora Joseph 2010 University of Massachusetts Boston

The Loss Of A Culture With An Accent: A Sociological Reflection On My Assimilation Into The American Culture, Dora Joseph

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

So the question is: Who am I? Who have I become? Where am I going? I started on this journey to figure out how to stay true to my French roots while thriving socially, educationally, and professionally in other cultures. Realizing that somewhere in the midst of my interaction with my environment I had adopted an accent that was not my own (the British accent), I sought to retrace my steps and head in a direction that might bring me some clarity to my present identity crisis. I decided to attend a university in the U.S., thinking that it ...


Relational Cohesion Theory, Edward J. Lawler 2010 Cornell University

Relational Cohesion Theory, Edward J. Lawler

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] Relational cohesion theory explains how and when people who are exchanging things of value develop stable, cohesive relations. It starts from the idea that people tend to interact or do things with others because they get something they value or want from those others. They give something to the other and receive something in return. This is termed a social exchange. The valued "goods” that are exchanged may be tangible or intangible. Employees exchange their labor for pay, clients exchange money for services, neighbors exchange assistance with each other's yards, coworkers exchange advice and information, roommates exchange respect ...


Corruption As Social Exchange, Edward J. Lawler, Lena Hipp 2010 Cornell University

Corruption As Social Exchange, Edward J. Lawler, Lena Hipp

Articles and Chapters

This chapter applies social exchange theory to corruption. If two parties exhibit corrupt behaviors, secrecy becomes a new joint good, making the two parties more dependent on each other (an increase in total power). Since no external enforcement mechanisms are available in illicit exchanges, the initial reciprocal exchange pattern shifts toward negotiated or productive forms of exchange. Such forms of exchange, however, tend to leave traces, either because the amount of traded resources increases or the contingencies between the behaviors become more visible to the outside. Using the larger network structure, in which corrupt exchanges are embedded, to deal with ...


Citizenship, In The Immigration Context, Matthew Lister 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Citizenship, In The Immigration Context, Matthew Lister

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

Many international law scholars have begun to argue that the modern world is experiencing a “decline of citizenship,” and that citizenship is no longer an important normative category. On the contrary, this paper argues that citizenship remains an important category and, consequently, one that implicates considerations of justice. I articulate and defend a “civic” notion of citizenship, one based explicitly on political values rather than shared demographic features like nationality, race, or culture. I use this premise to argue that a just citizenship policy requires some form of both the jus soli (citizenship based on location of birth) and the ...


Moral Disengagement: Exploring Support Mechanisms For Violent Extremism Among Young Egyptian Males, Paul S. Lieber, Yael Efreom-Lieber, Christopher Rate 2010 University of Canberra

Moral Disengagement: Exploring Support Mechanisms For Violent Extremism Among Young Egyptian Males, Paul S. Lieber, Yael Efreom-Lieber, Christopher Rate

Australian Counter Terrorism Conference

This study applied Bandura’s (1986) eight mechanisms of moral disengagement to a sample of young, Egyptian Muslim males (N=660). Findings uncovered two distinct scoring groups, likewise a statistically significant (p<.01) relationship between higher reported levels of moral disengagement and age. For this sample, younger individuals were likewise more apt to possess higher levels of moral disengagement. Findings argue for additional analyses exploring these relationships, likewise employing counter-violence, communication interventions derived specifically from Bandura’s identified mechanisms.


Thomas Carlyle’S Lost Translation Of Saint-Simon’S Nouveau Christianisme: An Epistolary Account, Michael R. Hill 2010 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Thomas Carlyle’S Lost Translation Of Saint-Simon’S Nouveau Christianisme: An Epistolary Account, Michael R. Hill

Sociology Department, Faculty Publications

The first-known (and now lost) translation of Saint-Simon’s Nouveau christianisme was prepared by the well-known Scotch-born prose writer, Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881). Carlyle was considerably interested in the Saint- Simonian movement (Cofer 1931; Murphy 1936; Shine 1941) and undertook to translate Saint-Simon’s last work during the latter half of 1830. The following excerpts from Carlyle’s correspondence reveal that he was unable to find a willing publisher for his translation, and the manuscript subsequently disappeared, presumably in France. This unfortunate chain of events accounts in part for the circumstance that Nouveau christianisme was not better-known among Englishspeaking sociologists and ...


Mediation As An Effective Method To Transform Relationships And Resolve Conflict, Julie R. Kneip 2010 University of Northern Iowa

Mediation As An Effective Method To Transform Relationships And Resolve Conflict, Julie R. Kneip

Graduate Research Papers

Mediation has become a well-respected method of conflict resolution. It is currently utilized in a variety of areas including family situations such as divorce and custody concerns, employer and employee disputes, and individual conflicts. Mediation occurs on a global level as well, including intervention with countries engaged in conflict with one another and countries with governments at odds with their constituents. In the United States, mediation is often seen as a way to lower the burden on the courts by having parties resolve issues with the help of a mediator rather than further clogging the judicial system. While this is ...


Variations In Social Support And Mental Health Among Black Women By Socioeconomic Status, Lesa A. Johnson 2010 University of Nebraska at Lincoln

Variations In Social Support And Mental Health Among Black Women By Socioeconomic Status, Lesa A. Johnson

Sociology Theses, Dissertations, & Student Research

A considerable body of research focuses on the mental health of black women with low socioeconomic status. Social scientists have noted that women in low socioeconomic status groups often utilize social networks to provide protection and survival in dense and depressed communities. Still, some social scientists also suggest that the bounded solidarity of kinship networks decreases chances for women to pursue opportunities for economic mobility by creating stressful and time consuming obligations for reciprocity. Though many qualitative and community quantitative studies have been conducted regarding social support and survival among low income women, few quantitative studies have addressed variation in ...
