    2010-01-01

    El presente artículo demuestra la afinidad electiva entre consumo cultural y percepción sociocultural. A partir de los datos de la Encuesta de participación y consumo cultural 2009, de Chile, se muestra evidencia estadística de que el consumo cultural mantiene una afinidad electiva con las valoraciones democráticas, políticas, sociales y ciudadanas de los consumidores. Esta tendencia también es observable entre las personas que pertenecen a segmentos de la población con bajos ingresos económi...

    A group of 97 individuals with typical symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) was submitted to gastroesophageal reflux scintigraphy (GES) and compared to the results obtained from endoscopy, histopathology and 24 hours pHmetry. Twenty-four healthy individuals were used as a control group and they have done only the GERS. The results obtained showed that: (a) the difference in the reflux index (RI) for the control group and the sick individuals was statistically significant (p < 0.0001); (b) the correlation between GERS and the other methods showed the following results: sensitivity, 84%; specificity, 95%; positive predictive value, 98%; negative predictive value, 67%; accuracy, 87%. We have concluded that the scintigraphic method should be used to confirm the diagnosis of GERD and also recommended as initial investiative procedure. (author)

    Full Text Available Este artículo inicia con un breve estudio de los signos vitales de la difusión dentro de la universidades. Cada vez es más frecuente encontrar a la difusión cultural en las universidades públicas detenida frente a la disyuntiva entre el debilitamiento y el porvenir, la agonía y la reactivación. Quienes se interesen en dar pasos que permitan transformar esta encrucijada, como punto de partida, encontrarán aquí pautas para la reflexión, orientadas a la puesta en marcha de acciones que apoyen y fortalezcan esta actividad, siempre mencionada como sustantiva, aunque, en la práctica, ubicada por debajo de la investigación y la docencia. En suma, es una propuesta para crear el porvenir de la difusión, a partir del análisis, la crítica constante y la evaluación.

    Full Text Available O artigo examina as ressonâncias entre a abordagem enativa de F. Varela e a psicologia histórico-cultural de L. S. Vygotski, tomando como foco os mecanismos de construção da cognição. O mecanismo histórico-dialético e o mecanismo autopoiético são comparados quanto à possibilidade de darem conta da inventividade da cognição. A metodologia utilizada tem por base as indicações fornecidas por Y. Clot na coletânea Avec Vygotski. São analisadas as ressonâncias entre os autores, sublinhando seus pontos de afastamento e de proximidade, com destaque para as respectivas contribuições ao entendimento da aprendizagem, envolvendo o questionamento do foco na solução de problemas e do determinismo do meio ambiente.

    Full Text Available The international dimension has always played an important role in Canadian public sector’s communications policies. The USA have been considered an unavoidable neighbour because of its geographic proximity and a threat because of its hegemonic cultural industries, one of the countries most important exporting sectors. In this given context, the policies implemented by Ottawa in economy and culture have been traditionally constrained by two principles: closure and openness. Since the 80s, the settlement of liberalising policies regarding exchange is to be seen, wether in continental scale, with the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA, wether in global scale, with the World Trade Organization talks. Works about the concepts of isention, exception and cultural diversity were also to be seen, specially in the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco, which issued a convention in the Autumn of 2005. This article aims at observing if these policies where implemented with continuity or with ruptures, i.e., the multiplication of multilateral decisions. In order to achieve this goal, in first place the influence of free-trade agreements over public policies in the communications area will be explained. It will be verified that the magazines sector was the first matter of conflict between Canada and the USA, what brought the Canadian political authorities to change some the support mechanisms and at the same time maintain economical and cultural aspects such as openness and closure. Finally, the possibility of maintaining political tools that promote “Canadian content” will be examined in a more precise way, for the efforts in negotiations with the Unesco are always more strongly aimed at “cultural diversity”, since the convention of 2005 was settled.

    Full Text Available Les 25 et 26 juin 2015 s’est tenu à l’université de Lorraine à Metz un colloque international réunissant des universitaires français et allemands autour de la figure de Charles de Villers, intermédiaire culturel souvent méconnu entre la France et l’Allemagne, né en 1765 à Boulay, Lorraine, et décédé en 1815 à Göttingen, où il fut professeur dans les dernières années de sa vie. Le bicentenaire de sa mort – ainsi que le 250e anniversaire de sa naissance – furent l’occasion de cette rencontre franco-allemande, organisée conjointement par Nicolas Brucker, initiateur de ce projet, de l’Université de Lorraine à Metz, et Franziska Meier, de la Georg-August-Universität à Göttingen.

    2012-11-01

    Full Text Available Cet article explore la façon dont on adresse un objet à l’enfant, c’est-à-dire la rhétorique à l’œuvre pour séduire les enfants (et les parents dans certains cas. Si l’éducation peut être présente pour certains produits, domine très largement aujourd’hui une rhétorique du fun, une association de l’objet à l’enfance via le divertissement et l’insertion dans une culture des pairs. Pour partie cet adressage se fait à travers l’utilisation de personnages ou d’univers sous licence qui proposent une rhétorique du fun prête à l’emploi. Mais l’analyse des univers disponibles montre que l’on peut décomposer le fun à travers deux pôles opposés, le cute, dont Hello Kitty constitue un exemple archétypal, et le cool, que Titeuf permet de saisir dans sa logique. A travers la distinction du cute et du cool, il s’agit de contribuer à l’analyse du déploiement contemporain d’une culture du divertissement qui est incorporée aux objets de l’enfance, tout en étant un moyen de capter l’intérêt de ceux-ci.

    Full Text Available La internet lo ha cambiado todo. Más que sólo una manera sencilla y eficaz de intercambiar correos electrónicos o documentos, internet está surgiendo como una importante columna vertebral no únicamente del comercio y los negocios, sino del desarrollo. A este fenómeno se le suma la creciente tendencia hacia la globalización de los mercados experimentada durante las dos últimas décadas del siglo xx y los años iniciales de la primera década del nuevo milenio. Por otra parte, se conoce desde haces varias décadas sobre la importancia de las cuestiones culturales en la mercadotecnia internacional. De aquí la trascendencia de analizar la problemática cultural de la mercadotecnia por internet desde diferentes perspectivas. En este estudio se realiza una comparación transcultural entre México y Canadá mediante el análisis de 50 sitios en internet de 25 empresas canadienses y 25 mexicanas, con el fin de validar si el grado de adaptación de las dimensiones culturales planteadas por Hofstede es reflejado en las páginas Web de las compañías que realizan operaciones en estos países.

    Full Text Available El presente trabajo analiza el impacto de la publicidad entre jóvenes chilenos de distintos estratos socioeconómicos, con el objetivo de identificar la relación que establecen con la publicidad y la particular incorporación que hacen de ésta en sus estrategias de socialización. Por lo tanto, no se pretende dar cuenta de lo que la publicidad hace con los jóvenes, sino de lo que los jóvenes hacen con la publicidad a través de sus prácticas de recepción y apropiación. Para esto, se realizó un estudio sobre la base de grupos de discusión a jóvenes de ambos sexos, de edades entre 15 y 24 años provenientes de los niveles socioeconómicos altos y bajos residentes en Santiago de Chile. Los resultados que arrojó el estudio dan cuenta de que la publicidad es asumida como parte constitutiva de la oferta medial, la que es utilizada como información comercial y referente cultural de nuevos valores estéticos. Junto con esto, la publicidad adquiere el carácter de agente de socialización, al incorporar los contenidos de los mensajes publicitarios en las conversaciones con sus pares. Finalmente, este trabajo concluye que la publicidad entre los jóvenes chilenos estudiados, se presenta como una realidad sociocultural de primer orden, en cuanto actor central de su vida cotidiana.This work analyzes the impact of advertising among Chilean youngsters of different socioeconomic background. We aim to identify the relationship that this group establishes with advertising and, in particular, the way they incorporate it in their socialization strategies. We do not address what advertising does to youngsters, but instead what youngsters do with advertising in their practices of appropriation and reception of it. The research design included focus groups of male and female youngsters living in Santiago de Chile between 15 and 24 years of age coming from both high and low-income background. The conclusion of our research is that advertising is assumed

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: El objetivo de este texto fue analizar las relaciones entre los campos y las categorías educación y tecnología . Metodológicamente, el trabajo se orientó por una perspectiva histórico-cultural, reconociendo que los conceptos y campos se han construido socialmente en contextos histórico-políticos. El artículo se configura en tres partes; en primer lugar, se ocupa de una primera relación entre educación y tecnología que se configuró entre los siglos XVII y XIX. En la segunda parte, se analiza cómo en el siglo XX la relación entre educación y tecnología adquirió unas especificidades marcadas por las dos guerras mundiales, la Guerra Fría y el inicio de la globalización; en la tercera parte, se muestran algunas tensiones que esto ha implicado en el siglo XXI; se cierra con perspectivas para futuros trabajos.

    2011-07-01

    Full Text Available El texto busca sentar algunos puntos partida para abordar la solución de los conflictos que se presentan entre los derechos de las mujeres y el respeto y protección de la diversidad cultural. Se presenta una tensión entre estos dos extremos cuando un reclamo de igualdad sexual choca con una característica que se juzga distintiva de una nación, una etnia o una religión según la cual hombres y mujeres no deben recibir el mismo trato. Aunque la apuesta del derecho internacional es clara a favor de los derechos de las mujeres en este tipo de conflictos, se debe desechar la opción de darles una única respuesta de todo o nada pues ello significaría desconocer el valor normativo del respeto a la diversidad cultural, salvo los casos de violencia contra la mujer, en los cuales siempre se debe estar a favor de su eliminación. Así, al abordar los conflictos entre los derechos de las mujeres y la diversidad cultural, estos deben ser situados geográfica e históricamente y no se puede dejar de considerar la posición de las mujeres pertenecientes a esa etnia, nación o religión, partiendo de la base de que las culturas son cambiantes y conflictivas y que también son usadas, en muchas ocasiones, para mantener espacios de poder.

    This article makes correlations between levels of gas {sup 222}Rn emanation and corresponding porosity for thirteen samples of granitic rocks ornamental state of Ceara. For both determinations of physical indexes (bulk density, apparent porosity and water absorption, the levels of U, monitoring emanation of radon gas are made for a period of 25 days in confinement conditions of the samples under vacuum and petrographic studies of the characteristics rocks, with emphasis on the microfissural state. The sampled rocks provided low values of radon gas emanation between U 0,2 ppm and 13.6 ppm. The correlations between the various results show that the microporous network of the rock is determinant in the rate of emanation of radon gas, overlapping, including the influence of own levels of U present in the rocks. The results also show that the amount of radon gas emanating from the rock is small enough compared to the decay caused by the amount of {sup 238}U. The proposition of gas emanating relative to the total generated by rocks ranging between 0.4% and a maximum of 4.2%. (author)

    A new approach was described for clinical and physical parameters used in radiotherapy planning and dosimetry, studying their dependencies on spectral widths. Two different models of clinical linear accelerators were used-Mevatron 74 (UNICAMP) and Mevatron 12 (HC/FMRP/Ribeirao Preto). Mevatron 74 produces beams with nominal energies from 5 up to 12 MeV and Mevatron 12 from 3 up to 11 MeV. It was verified that the values of clinical parameters expected from a semi-empirical theory differ from that obtained experimentally. Such differences are relevant from the point of view of the design of electron accelerators, as well as, of the target clinical results. (author)

    2017-06-01

    Full Text Available A tradução de uma obra literária ultrapassa o âmbito literário do texto fonte. As escolhas feitas dependem de maneira primordial das orientações ideológicas, do peso das culturas umas em relação as outras, das decisões de ordem editorial e política, e, enfim, dos estereótipos mantidos entre as culturas, os quais não existem no abstrato mas fixam suas raízes, no geral, nas realidades históricas, para, em seguida, serem alimentados pelos interesses divergentes de um grupo em relação ao outro. Nesse contexto, o tradutor de um romance não cumpre apenas o papel de um passeur entre uma cultura e outra; ele é o veículo de uma intenção mais ou menos articulada, mais ou menos consciente, e se inscreve claramente em uma relação de força, de fraqueza, de eventual luta, entre um grupo cultural e outro. Com o intuito de saber mais sobre esta problemática, é preciso se colocar as seguintes questões: Quem, entre os autores de um país, é traduzido? Quem os traduz e os publica? Para quem eles são traduzidos? Como são traduzidos? Com qual objetivo? O presente artigo dedica-se sobre os casos de autores quebequenses na Itália, exemplares sob essa perspectiva.

    Full Text Available O presente ensaio tem como objetivo retomar um conceito que é central para a psicologia desenvolvimentista iniciada por Vigotski e seus colaboradores, que é unidade entre instrumento e signo no desenvolvimento infantil. Pretende-se demonstrar o caráter revolucionário de tal abordagem metodológica do estudo das funções psicológicas superiores, ao se comparar com as visões empiristas (mecanicistas e descritivas em psicologia. Parte-se da metodologia da Psicologia Histórico-cultural. Esta visão diz que deve haver tanto a mediação dos outros como da própria realidade para que se desenvolva uma relação complexa entre os signos auxiliares e os estímulos/objetos que eles representam. É através da internalização da cultura que se desenvolve o pensamento e a personalidade da criança. Conclui-se demonstrando o papel central que a educação escolar tem no desenvolvimento máximo dos indivíduos.

    2006-12-01

    Full Text Available A tese do fim das metanarrativas defendida pelo pós-modernismo implica a negação da universalidade da cultura. Não se trata apenas do fato de que a cultura humana ainda não tenha alcançado um estágio de verdadeira universalidade nem mesmo se trata do fato de que a classe dominante tenha até hoje submetido a cultura humana a seus interesses particulares de classe e, para tanto, tenha sufocado e destruído muito da riqueza contida nas culturas locais. Para o pós-modernismo, o problema não reside na visão burguesa de cultura humana, mas sim na própria idéia de que possa haver uma cultura universal. Os pós-modernos afirmam que qualquer projeto educacional pautado na idéia da existência ou da possibilidade de uma cultura universal é um projeto conservador, autoritário e etnocêntrico. O texto defende a tese de que a concepção marxiana acerca do processo histórico de constituição da riqueza humana universal contém os elementos teóricos necessários para a superação da falsa opção, postulada pelas diversas correntes do pós-modernismo, entre o etnocentrismo e o relativismo cultural. Em Marx, a universalização da cultura humana ocorre, na sociedade capitalista, por meio da universalização do valor de troca das mercadorias como mediação fundamental das relações sociais. Trata-se, portanto, de um processo dialético no qual ocorrem ao mesmo tempo a humanização e a alienação do gênero humano e dos indivíduos. O texto conclui com a apresentação dos desafios que, a partir dessa concepção marxiana sobre a riqueza universal, devem ser enfrentados no processo de construção de uma pedagogia marxista.The thesis of the end of the meta-narratives defended by postmodernism implies the negation of the universality of culture. It is not just the fact that human culture has not yet achieved true universality, and not even the fact that the ruling classes have so far subjected human culture to their own private interests

Tem como objetivo refletir sobre as perspectivas de desenvolvimento de uma Educação Patrimonial em uma cidade educadora.

Sendo assim, este texto contempla reflexões sobre a educação patrimonial como uma área emergente na educação e analisa uma experiência na região do alto Tietê, no município de Guararema.

    Full Text Available Las últimas décadas han sido caracterizadas por planteamientos relativos al estudio y puesta en valor del territorio como atractivo turístico, teniendo en cuenta sus recursos, sus habitantes y los procesos de planificación y gestión. En este marco toma fuerza la apreciación de recursos culturales y naturales, el turismo y el paisaje cultural. Este último es el contenedor y el contenido de actividades turísticas que valoran los recursos autóctonos llevando a la creación de una experiencia vivencial como nueva apuesta en el turismo rural. Este artículo presenta las experiencias particulares del Quindío en torno al proyecto Paisaje Cultural y sus implicaciones para el diseño de un modelo de turismo cultural en los pueblos de la Cordillera, basado en los atributos que determinan su excepcionalidad y autenticidad. Para tal fin, se realizaron trabajos participativos dirigidos a la interpretación cultural, conceptualizando el producto “Caminos e historias de la tierra cafetera” y aportando a la ‘patrimonialización’ del paisaje como territorio museo.

  1. AS POSSIBILIDADES DA REVOLUÇÃO CULTURAL: UM PARALELO ENTRE AS CONCEPÇÕES DE HERBERT MARCUSE E HENRI LEFEBVRE

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Paulo Irineu Barreto Fernandes

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste artigo é estabelecer uma relação entre as concepções de revolução cultural em Marcuse e Lefebvre, a partir da maneira como os dois filósofos visualizaram a revolução, no contexto do capitalismo. Os pontos de partida são: a crítica marcuseana ao caráter afirmativo da cultura e a crítica de Lefebvre à ideologia capitalista. Defende-se a hipótese de que as razões que levaram Marcuse a se aproximar das manifestações artísticas revolucionárias foram as mesmas que fizeram Lefebvre se aproximar do estudo do cotidiano. Para realizar a pesquisa, a metodologia aplicada foi revisão de literatura e leitura de obras dos autores em que as questões propostas aparecem com mais frequência, a saber: o texto “33 teses”, do livro Tecnologia, guerra e fascismo, os textos “A arte na sociedade unidimensional” e “Sobre o caráter afirmativo da cultura”, de Marcuse e os textos “Filosofia e conhecimento do cotidiano”, “Como nomear a sociedade atual?” e “Rumo a uma revolução cultural permanente”, do livro A vida cotidiana no mundo moderno, de Lefebvre. Concluímos, provisoriamente, que enquanto em Marcuse a revolução cultural exige uma mudança na sensibilidade; em Lefebvre, a revolução cultural se dá no próprio processo do cotidiano.

In particular this study was developed from data collected among students who, during academic year 2003/2004, attended to “Education and Socio-cultural Diversity”, subject included in this academic year for the first time in the Degree in Education at the University of Almería. This research not only seeks to give an insight into the concept of culture handle these students, but also to analyze the influence of the subject on the concept of culture used by students as well as the influence of the lecturer on their views and attitudes. La llegada de familias inmigrantes a nuestro país ha conllevado un notable incremento de inmigrantes o hijos de inmigrantes en las escuelas, lo que las han convertido en espacios multiculturales.

    Full Text Available La formación de conceptos es uno de los componentes esenciales tanto del proceso de creación y desarrollo del conocimiento, como de instrucción y aprendizaje en el contexto educacional. Entre las tendencias pedagógicas que estudian esta problemática se encuentran el cognitivismo y el enfoque histórico-cultural. A su vez, la formación de conceptos en el marco del proceso interactivo de enseñanza-aprendizaje tiene lugar en correspondencia con los fundamentos lógico-gnoseológicos que le sirven de base. Se propone como objetivo de este estudio valorar críticamente los fundamentos lógico-gnoseológicos presentes en la comprensión e implementación de tal proceso desde las perspectivas de ambas tendencias, tomando como referencia a dos de los principales representantes de las mismas: David Ausubel y Lev Vygotsky, respectivamente. En el caso de Ausubel, junto a la presencia de aspectos positivos, se aprecian inconsecuencias que hacen que predomine un enfoque lógico-formal que lastra el fundamento científicamente consecuente y el grado de efectividad en la implementación del proceso de formación de conceptos. En el caso de Vygotsky, sin dejar de observar limitaciones en sus fundamentos lógico-gnoseológicos relacionadas con la identificación terminológica en ocasiones de la naturaleza de lo práctico con la del pensamiento o entre conceptos y abstracciones, no obstante se aprecia un mayor grado de cientificidad y consecuencia en las bases de dicho proceso a partir de un análisis lógico dialéctico de contenido basado en lo social y cultural. El estudio de los mismos contribuye a elaborar una comprensión más integral del complejo proceso de formación de conceptos.

    Full Text Available Neste artigo são utilizados os conceitos de identidade narrativa e configuração relacional para compreender as diferentes formas como os Estados organizam os reconhecimentos coletivos e as suas gramáticas institucionais. Usando a narrativa como ferramenta analítica procuramos mostrar como as identidades coletivas são construídas historicamente salientando simultaneamente a imbricação de narrativas de diversos níveis institucionais para legitimar as concepções coletivas de fronteiras identitárias. Metodologicamente, o texto se baseia em uma abordagem historicizante que se vale de fontes secundárias e de pesquisa de um corpus selecionado de documentos oficiais resultante de trabalho de campo em Portugal e no Brasil. Sugerimos que a comparação entre estes contextos permite perceber movimentos divergentes em matéria de concepção das adesões coletivas e dos seus significados em face do pluralismo cívico e étnico-cultural do Estado-nação contemporâneo.

    Full Text Available Este artículo tiene como objetivo analizar la construcción del imaginario amoroso y las características de su proceso de aprendizaje en la adolescencia, teniendo en cuenta las diferencias de género. Esta investigación se basa en una etnografía más amplia, realizada con adolescentes de entre doce y catorce años de Bilbao. Durante este trabajo de campo, se han llevado a cabo observaciones participantes, entrevistas en profundidad y grupos de discusión con el alumnado de tres centros escolares. A través de ellas, se ha podido comprobar que el peso de las industrias culturales es más significativo ante el silencio de los centros educativos en la enseñanza sentimental. El consumo cultural varía según el género, ya que estas producciones guían y conducen a un consumo diferenciado para chicas o chicos. A consecuencia de lo cual, las chicas están más expuestas a los mensajes sobre este sentimiento, debido a que el amor es un ingrediente clave para clasificarlos como “para chicas”. Asimismo, cabe destacar el papel tan importante que adquieren las fantasías fundamentas en las ficciones culturales.

    Full Text Available Le rap a atteint un succès sans précédent auprès des jeunes urbains aux Etats-Unis et dans les grandes mégalopoles du monde entier. Ce genre musical, figure de proue du hip-hop, s’est affirmé dès les années 1970 comme un moyen d’expression diasporique reflétant les expériences, les rapports complexes et les interactions culturelles entre Africains Américains, Jamaïcains et Portoricains de la diaspora vivant à New York. Cependant, le positionnement des artistes issus de la diaspora portoricaine a été peu étudié. Nourri de séjours d’observation participante et de recherches réalisés entre 2005 et 2008, ainsi que de la fréquentation assidue des concerts du collectif artistique portoricain The Terror Squad auxquels l’auteur a pu assister, cet article se propose doncd’analyser le rôle central des artistes issus de la diaspora portoricaine de New York à travers l’étude du rap, élément le plus médiatisé du hip-hop. Il devient ainsi possible de mieux entrevoir les tensions, convergences et interactions culturelles qui régissent les rapports complexes qui s’établissent entre la latinité des Portoricains et la culture africaine-américaine urbaine depuis plus d’une trentaine d’années dans le milieu du rap.Rap music has achieved unprecedented success among urban youth in the United States and in big cities around the world. As a key element of hip-hop this musical style has been asserting its strength since the 1970s as a reflection of the diasporic experience and the complex cultural interactions between African Americans, Jamaicans and Puerto Ricans of the diaspora living in New York. However, scant research has been conducted on the role of Puerto Rican artists of the diaspora living in New York. Therefore, based on field trips and participant observation undertaken between 2005 and 2008 and the concerts of the Puerto Rican rap group The Terror Squad that the author was able to attend frequently, the

    Full Text Available En este artículo presentamos algunas de las conclusiones más destacadas del proyecto AUSTICA del grupo de investigación CONINCOM. Concretamente, focalizamos nuestra atención en el análisis de los conflictos que se dan en la escuela entre maestros y alumnos. En este punto, nuestra investigación afronta una realidad que aún hoy resulta sorprendente y paradójica. Mientras la educación formal obligatoria sigue estando caracterizada por una comprensión tradicional del concepto de alfabetización, los “nuevos alfabetismos”, aquellos que potencian habilidades y competencias propias del siglo XXI, se ejercitan en las prácticas culturales digitales que los jóvenes llevan a cabo en sus contextos de ocio y, por consiguiente, en entornos de naturaleza informal. Así, mientras los adultos generalmente separan lo digital de lo analógico, es decir, lo virtual de lo presencial, para los jóvenes, todo forma parte de una única dimensión: “la realidad”. En nuestro estudio se constata que las tecnologías contribuyen a modificar las relaciones interpersonales entre los propios jóvenes y que las redes sociales han ampliado la capacidad de mantenerse en contacto, ofreciendo más oportunidades para crear y aumentar vínculos sociales gracias a la reducción o eliminación de la distancia o el tiempo. Pero al mismo tiempo generan incertidumbre e incomprensiones en el mundo escolar, aunque no se deben exclusivamente a la (incomprensión del nuevo medio por parte de la institución escolar sino que también entra en juego la tradicional distancia o brecha generacional entre adultos y jóvenes.

    This article summarizes the definitions, means, and research of adapting psychotherapy to clients' cultural backgrounds. We begin by reviewing the prevailing definitions of cultural adaptation and providing a clinical example. We present an original meta-analysis of 65 experimental and quasi-experimental studies involving 8,620 participants. The omnibus effect size of d = .46 indicates that treatments specifically adapted for clients of color were moderately more effective with that clientele than traditional treatments. The most effective treatments tended to be those with greater numbers of cultural adaptations. Mental health services targeted to a specific cultural group were several times more effective than those provided to clients from a variety of cultural backgrounds. We recommend a series of research-supported therapeutic practices that account for clients' culture, with culture-specific treatments being more effective than generally culture-sensitive treatments. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Objective: to correlate the results of {sup 18}F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose ({sup 18}F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) performed with a specific protocol for assessment of breasts with histological/immunohistochemical findings in breast carcinoma patients. Materials and methods: cross-sectional study with prospective data collection, where patients with biopsy-confirmed breast carcinomas were studied. The patients underwent PET/CT examination in prone position, with a specific protocol for assessment of breasts. PET/CT findings were compared with histological and immunohistochemical data. Results: the authors identified 59 malignant breast lesions in 50 patients. The maximum diameter of the lesions ranged from 6 to 80 mm (mean: 32.2 mm). Invasive ductal carcinoma was the most common histological type (n = 47; 79.7%). At PET/CT, 53 (89.8%) of the lesions demonstrated anomalous concentrations of {sup 18}F-FDG, with maximum SUV ranging from 0.8 to 23.1 (mean: 5.5). A statistically significant association was observed between higher values of maximum SUV and histological type, histological grade, molecular subtype, tumor diameter, mitotic index and Ki-67 expression. Conclusion: PET/CT performed with specific protocol for assessment of breasts has demonstrated good sensitivity and was associated with relevant histological/immunohistochemical factors related to aggressiveness and prognosis of breast carcinomas.

    Calcium carbonate of recent and ancient C. rhizophorae oyster shells was analyzed for the determination of trace elements by instrumental neutron activation analysis. The ancient shells belong to a Sambaqui located in Cananeia region, South of Sao Paulo state and the recent ones are from an oyster production farm in the same region Studies related to the element concentrations in molluscs shell has been done as a tentative of establishing the element concentrations with palio-environmental factor. In this study it was aimed to verify differences in the elemental constitution of recent and ancient oyster shells that present potential for being used as indicator of marine changes. Results indicated that the elements Br, Ce, La, Na, Sm and An are higher in recent shells and the elements Cr, Fe Sc and Th are higher in ancient shells. Statistical analyses performed indicated that the enrichment of the light rare earth elements related to Ca are possibly good candidates for these palio-environmental studies. (author)

    The purpose of this study was to determine the degree of concordance between radiological and radioisotopic methods and, if positive, to evaluate the usefulness of ictal SPECT in the localization of the epileptogenic focus. Ictal brain SPECT, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) were performed on six patients with refractory temporal lobe epilepsy. Ictal SPECT was performed after withdrawal of the anti-epileptogenic drugs during video-EEG monitoring, using {sup 99m}Tc-ECD, administered to patients at the time of the ictus. MRI was performed in T1, T2 and FLAIR sequences and MRS was obtained using the PRESS technique, with a single voxel positioned in both hippocampi. The statistical analysis included the determination of the values of Kappa (k), standard error (se) and significance level (p) for the lateralization of the ictal focus. The analysis of all findings was based on EEG localization of the ictal discharge, seizure duration (109-280 s; 152 s average) and time of radiotracer injection (30-262 s; 96 s average). We obtained correlated data in four patients (67 per cent) and values of k = 0.67, se = 0.38, and p 0.041. We concluded that there is a concordance between ictal SPECT, MRI and MRS data and the usefulness of the radioisotopic procedure is related to a non diagnostic EEG and when there is a discordant or misleading diagnosis after a comparative analysis of EEG and MRS.

    The aims of this study were to develop and test a method to detect caries lesions in vivo and in vitro, using a portable spectrometer (PS); to analyze the performance of PS as well as the commercial device Diagnodent (Dd); correlate them with the gold standard, their transversal section areas and lesions depth and between themselves. 66 occlusal pre-molars sites were examined in vivo with Dd. Sequentially, fluorescence ({lambda}exc {approx} 657 nm) was collected by an optical fiber, conducted to PS and then analyzed as spectra, which were normalized and had calculated the Ratios of their Areas Under the Curves (RAUC) of carious and sound tissues. Experiments were conducted in vitro in the same sites. Gold Standard was obtained by polarized light microscopy. Pearson correlation was used to compare the devices with transversal section area, lesions depth and between themselves. The area under ROC curve, sensitivity, specificity as well as accuracy were calculated and verified with McNemar test. Dd and RAUC showed statistically significant correlation with gold standard (p < 0.01 for Dd and p < 0.05 for RAUC) and between themselves (r = 0,83 in vivo and r = 0,87 in vitro). Although it was significant, the devices showed low correlation with depth of lesions in vivo and in vitro (r = {approx} 0.43). The transversal section area of the lesion had no influence on readings in both devices. Dd showed higher sensitivity (0.76) than PS (0.60) in vivo (p < 0.05), though this fact was not able to improve its performance. In turn, PS showed higher sensitivity (0.88) than Dd (0.79) in vitro, but this difference was not significantly. The other parameters did not show statistically significant differences (p < 0.05) between methods. PS showed positive correlation with Dd, equal correlation with lesions depth and higher ability of detecting the disease in vitro, what suggests that if accompanied with a conic and an angulated probe and a dedicated software, the PS method could be useful in clinics in the near future.

    The sinonasal involvement is one of the most common manifestations in cystic fibrosis. Data show a high incidence of chronic rhino sinusitis in these patients. Although it has been found radiographic opacification of the sinus in more than 90% of cases, few are symptomatic. So that, it is difficult to recognize nasossinusal disease in patients with cystic fibrosis. Questionnaire, nasal endoscopy and CT-scan are very important methods in this approach. Aim: to evaluate the diagnosis of chronic rhino sinusitis in patients with cystic fibrosis by anamnesis, nasal endoscopy and CT-scan and compare those results.Study Design: Clinical prospective. Material and method: evaluation of 34 patients - older than 6 years and with a confirmed diagnoses of cystic fibrosis - by anamnesis (questionnaire), nasal endoscopy (score Lund-Kennedy) and CT-scan (score Lund-Mackay). Results: chronic rhino sinusitis was confirmed in: 20,58% of cases by the questionnaire, 73,52% of the cases by the nasal endoscopy and in 93,54% of the cases by the CT-scan. The results showed significant differences. The correlation between nasal endoscopy score (Lund-Kennedy score) and CT-scan score (Lund-Mackay score) was statistically significant. Conclusion: the diagnosis of chronic rhino sinusitis was statistically different between the three methods. It was higher in imaging analysis and lower in questionnaire. The nasal endoscopy is an excellent method to evaluate nasossinusal disease in cystic fibrosis. (author)

While acknowledging the materiality of these two spheres, I aim to produce an enquiry into objects, drawings and documentation practices that can contribute to developing new research methods. Among graphs and bits, I will dissect one object: the #relatograma, in order to analyze its ecology and propose a critical reflection on its digital condition and its ability to produce aggregated landscapes, or what I define as #coreograma. I will thereby explore its ability to be share information and produce knowledge. Keywords: Material culture; research methods; digital objects; drawing; #relatograma.

    Full Text Available Foram realizados 2 estudos para esclarecer aspectos envolvidos na violência interpessoal e algumas inter-relações entre cognição e afetividade no funcionamento psicológico. No primeiro estudo, a Escala Children's Action Tendency Scale (CATS foi aplicada em uma amostra de 779 alunos de 2ª a 7ª série. As tendências de resolução de conflito encontradas, assertividade, submissão e agressividade coincidiram com as encontradas por Deluty na amostra americana. Porém, foram encontradas diferenças significativas nas médias de submissão e assertividade entre as duas amostras. No segundo estudo foi usada a versão abreviada com uma amostra de 320 alunos de 5ª à 7ª série. Foram encontradas diferenças entre os 2 estudos nas tendências predominantes de resolução de conflitos, pois no segundo, submissão e agressividade sobrepujaram a assertividade, que ficou em último lugar. Tais resultados são discutidos como fruto de inter-relações entre contexto de pesquisa, idade, gênero e cultura.Two studies were conducted in order to assess some issues involved into interpersonal violence, and also to achieve more understanding about the cognitive and affective interrelationships on psychological functioning. In Study 1, the complete version of The Children's Action Tendency Scale (CATS was used to assess conflict resolution tendencies in a sample of 779 2nd to 7th grade students. The main tendencies of conflict resolution, assertiveness, submissiveness and aggression found among Brazilian students were the same found for the American sample, but some significant differences regarding submissiveness and assertiveness were also found. In Study 2, the short version of the scale was administered to a sample of 320 5th to 7th graders, in which the main tendencies identified in this study were submissiveness, aggressiveness and assertiveness, as well as a mixture of the first two tendencies.

    Full Text Available The article presents a challenge to cultural diversity through the study of translation flows between 1979 and 2002. With the help of network analysis or method "structural" indicators are used to measure cultural diversity and assess the recognition of different languages. For example, there is a clear decline in the diversity of exchange translation from 1989.Using this method, we also understand the changing structure translation flows and, consequently, the dynamics of these flows. Thus, it is possible when the structure flows translations are stable in the 80's: around opposing English and Russian languages, two major groups. After the fall of the Berlin Wall preferential translation relations between the official languages of the former communist countries disappear, while the centrality of English becomes more important. In general, the choice of language works to be translated is based, above all, on geographical and political considerations.In summary, network analysis provides a different vision of globalization. Thus, it seems important that tools like this to be integrated in future studies related to this issue.

    Myrna Sueli da Silva Lorêto

    Full Text Available Ao se falar de cultura pernambucana, percebe-se que alguns grupos responsáveis por manifestações tradicionais estão encontrando dificuldades em permanecer realizando essas atividades culturais. Este fato decorre, entre outros motivos, devido à reforma do Estado que tende, a cada dia que passa, a diminuir os investimentos diretos em cultura, fazendo-o por meio de leis de incentivo à cultura e renúncia fiscal. É nesse contexto que as instituições bancárias perceberam uma nova fatia do mercado a atingir: o setor cultural. A fim de obterem legitimidade perante a comunidade da qual fazem parte, os bancos começam a se utilizar dos mecanismos governamentais, como as leis de incentivo à cultura, para conseguirem isenção de impostos ao financiarem projetos culturais e, ao mesmo tempo, alcançarem visibilidade junto à mídia enquanto organizações socialmente responsáveis. Assim, propomo-nos a discutir de que modo está configurado o campo cultural que se formou a partir das ações de financiamento das instituições bancárias em Recife. Para isso, tomamos como base a Teoria Institucional, pois ela destaca aspectos como: o ambiente onde essas organizações estão inseridas e a noção de campo.

O conceito de risco epidemiológico é um dos elementos centrais deste processo, especialmente no contexto das práticas de saúde. Inicialmente é apresentada uma breve caracterização do conceito de risco epidemiológico, ressaltando que, como modelo abstrato, reduz a complexidade dos fenômenos que estuda. A apreensão da realidade mediante essa abstração gera valores e significados. A reflexão de Canguilhem sobre as relações entre ciência, técnica e vida é retomada com a perspectiva de aprofundar a compreensão das conseqüências culturais produzidas, que contribuem para a transformação das concepções clássicas de individualidade, autonomia e sociabilidade. Temas vitais cruciais, como individualidade, alteridade, relação com a morte, estão presentes (ocultos nas questões que envolvem a nuclearidade do risco no mundo atual.This article discusses the cultural consequences of discourses and practices aimed at training subjects for a rational, informed choice in relation to risks, calculated on the basis of scientific knowledge.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Demostrar la importancia de los factores culturales que hoy motivan a los niños mexicanos a consumir bebidas azucaradas y examinar sus implicaciones para el diseño de programas de promoción de estilos de vida saludable. MÉTODOS: Estudio cualitativo fenomenológico. Se llevaron a cabo nueve entrevistas con pares y cuatro grupos de discusión con niños de entre 9 y 10 años de edad en cuatro escuelas públicas del sur de la Ciudad de México. Las entrevistas se realizaron con apoyo de nueve fotografías de bebidas disponibles en las escuelas y en los hogares. Se buscó identificar las reglas culinarias asociadas con el consumo de bebidas azucaradas y las diferentes valoraciones que hacen los niños acerca de las bebidas. Las entrevistas y los grupos de discusión se grabaron y transcribieron en su integridad. Se desarrollaron matrices de análisis en categorías temáticas identificadas durante el estudio. El análisis se basó en la "comparación continua" de los discursos de niños y niñas, y entre los alumnos de las cuatro escuelas. RESULTADOS: Dos principales elementos de índole sociocultural, construidos en un marco cultural determinado, explican en parte el actual patrón de consumo entre los niños. El primero, una casi inexistente conceptualización de los niños con respecto al consumo de agua, confinada a la realización de actividad física, contraria a la amplia gama de circunstancias y ocasiones que encontraron para el consumo de alguna bebida azucarada. Segundo, la identificación de tres principios que parecen estructurar el consumo de las bebidas -combinación de alimentos salados con bebidas dulces, rol protagónico de las bebidas azucaradas en eventos sociales y asociación estrecha del consumo de agua con la sed provocada por el esfuerzo físico. CONCLUSIONES: Los resultados ponen en evidencia la importancia de considerar el papel de los elementos socialmente significativos en las prácticas alimentarias y la

    EntreMed has licensed the worldwide rights to the angiogenesis inhibitor Endostatin, a 20 kDa C-terminal fragment of collagen XVIII, from the Children's Hospital of Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. It is being developed as a potential cancer treatment and may also be useful in certain types of blindness and arthritis [227427]. EntreMed filed an IND for Endostatin in June 1999 [334125] and as of September 1999, phase I trials were underway [341462]. As of April 2000, the company had initiated plans for testing low doses of Endostatin in cancer patients using continuous infusion and sc administration in a further phase I study to be conducted in Europe [361594]. A phase I trial of Endostatin which will evaluate the safety and efficacy of Endostatin at a range of doses in no more than 100 cancer patients has been initiated. The trial will take place at the University of Texas MD Anderson Medical Center and the University of Wisconsin Cancer Center in Madison. The National Cancer Center will be sponsoring the trial, which is expected to be completed in late 2000. As of March 2000, there had been no serious adverse events attributable to Endostatin administration. The first report from this trial is expected in autumn 2000 [341462], [366312]. The mechanism of action for Endostatin remains unclear, although reports from the 91st AACR Meeting in April 2000 showed that recombinant human endostatin bound to a number of tropomyosin cDNAs in a library screen [362039]. In preclinical studies, repeated administration of Endostatin consistently shrank primary tumors and did not produce any drug resistance. In mice, a variety of tumors which had progressed to 1 to 2% of total body weight, regressed to microscopic, dormant lesions following Endostatin treatment [231418], [231470], [270673]. Types of cancers which respond to Endostatin include lung, skin, vascular and fibrosarcomas. Toxicology studies in cynomolgus monkeys showed that bolus injections of

    Full Text Available Forms of contemporary cultural production in Brazil have articulated emerging social forms that put strain and open new questions on the boundaries between cultural production, the political and the market. This paper seeks to analyze the relationships between cul- tural production, the market and the political produced by an emerging artistic-cultural movement, Fora do Eixo. This movement emerged in the last decade, and is characterized by its organization in an articulated collective network and the use of digital technologies for work on cultural production. Drawing upon ethnographic work, this paper analyses some of the meanings that Fora do Eixo gives to certain actions of cultural production, transcending the analytical simplifications to understand the modes of mediation among culture, politics and the market that these movements produce in their own terms.

    Full Text Available The legal rights, laws, pacts, treaties and national and international agreements on gender violence proposed by the OEA, the UN and UNESCO and subscribed by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela do not always reflect the actual facts. But we can ask ourselves whether this juridical machinery responds to the Venezuelan reality or, on the contrary, whether it is just a copy of other realities from more developed countries such as France. In that sense, the only kind of violence reported is the physical one. Physical violence is penalized in all of western societies; but other kinds of violence coexist with this cultural reality, which are invisible, not criminalized, and socially accepted. These include, first, affective nomadism; second, early pregnancy; third, paternal irresponsibility; and fourth, discrimination against women in politics and in the workforce, discrimination which has been accentuated by new rights, which indirectly exclude women from the labor market. This investigation is part of a comparative study between Venezuela and France, from a gender point of view. Los derechos, las leyes, los pactos, los tratados y los convenios nacionales e internacionales propuestos por la OEA, la ONU y la UNESCO, suscritos por la República Bolivariana de Venezuela, sobre la violencia de género, no siempre reflejan los hechos. Pero, cabría preguntarse si este aparato legal se corresponde con la realidad, o por el contrario es una copia, de países desarrollados, como Francia. Alrededor de esta realidad cultural, coexisten otros tipos de violencias invisibles, que no están tipificadas como delitos y son aceptadas socialmente: en primer lugar, el nomadismo afectivo; en segundo lugar, el embarazo precoz; en tercer lugar, la irresponsabilidad paternal; en cuarto lugar, la discriminación de las mujeres en la política y del trabajo formal.

    Full Text Available El Cáucaso ha ocupado un lugar importante entre las imágenes de montaña en Rusia, además de haber sido uno de los campos privilegiados en los estudios de la «Ciencia del paisaje» rusa, que ha convertido a la Geografía en uno de los instrumentos para la colonización de los nuevos territorios y el aprovechamiento de los recursos naturales. En este artículo se reconstruye la interrelación entre el paisaje del Cáucaso, sus representaciones culturales y sus modelos científicos a lo largo de los siglos XVIII, XIX y XX con el fin de mostrar la complejidad de las representaciones, científicas y culturales, y el relativismo de la interpretación científica del espacio. Combinando lo subjetivo y lo objetivo, lo sensible y lo racional, el paisaje participa aquí en el nacimiento de un nuevo modo científico de aprehender el medio ambiente que se arraiga en la historia de los hombres y de sus culturas.

    Full Text Available Este artigo procura contribuir para a compreensão das diversas formas assumidas pelo ativismo político no Brasil contemporâneo, enfocando especificamente a intersecção entre política e estilo no feminismo das minas do rock. Para tanto, recupera material fruto de pesquisa etnográfica realizada entre 2004 e 2007 na cena paulistana do rock de mina. A análise propõe considerar o caráter espetacular do estilo como forma de "dar-se a ver" e comunicar-se, assim como tomar em conta as múltiplas relações de poder nas quais se inscreve o que é comunicado. Desse modo, sugere pensar os estilos como operadores de diferenças, levando em conta que não são produzidos por sujeitos pré-dados, que agem de forma inteiramente consciente em relação aos efeitos provocados por dada composição de aparência, atitude e música. Ao contrário, considera que os sujeitos se constituem no processo de citar e deslocar normas sociais e que isso pode se dar no processo de composição de um estilo.This article aims to offer a contribution to the understanding of the various forms assumed by political activism in contemporary Brazil, focusing specifically on the intersection between politics and style in the riot grrrls' feminism. In order to do that, it rescues material originated from ethnographic research carried out between 2004 and 2007 in the São Paulo riot grrrls' scene. The research coincides with a specific moment of this scene, marked by its expansion, indicated by the growth of the volume of activities and of its visibility, and by the organization of annual editions of the LadyFest Brasil - a cultural festival devised by women and for women that resumed and symbolized the scene's spirit, also integrating it to the calendar of international festivals of the same kind.

    Full Text Available As políticas de conservação da natureza em diversos paises estão cada vez mais ligadas à tomada de decisões ecológicas globais. Exemplos destas ligações variam entre a definição de prioridades e objetivos das políticas, à ação de ONG's ambientalistas internacionais, à existência de fundos e programas globais para o meio ambiente e o desenvolvimento sustentável, até as novas oportunidades econômicas representadas pelos mercados emergentes para serviços ecológicos globais e ''commodities ambientais''. Estas políticas freqüentemente conflitam com os direitos e as necessidades de diferentes populações locais, pois a implementação de áreas protegidas que excluem o homem recebe prioridade com respeito a outros modelos de conservação e uso sustentável da biodiversidade. O Brasil não faz exceção a esta regra. Hoje as políticas de conservação da natureza estão entrando em conflito direto com as políticas de preservação do direito à diferença cultural dos povos indígenas. Isto acontece a diversos níveis e em vários contextos locais diferenciados, desde a região Atlântica até a Amazônia e o Escudo das Guianas. A existência de fundos globais e suas prioridades podem contribuir para explicar estes conflitos, pois a ligação ecológica global contribui para redefinir as relações políticas nacionais e locais. O caso do Parque Nacional do Monte Roraima na Terra Indígena Raposa-Serra do Sol ilustra como modelos de conservação baseados na exclusão do homem, concebidos e implementados de cima para baixo, acirram conflitos preexistentes, políticos e sobre o direito à terra. Abordado através de um angulo diferente, este caso também aponta um possível caminho para soluções viáveis. Conversando, andando de canoa a remo e a pé com os índios Ingarikó na Serra do Sol, è possível perceber sua própria perspectiva cultural ecológica como elemento fundamental para a preservação dos recursos naturais

Em janeiro de 2010, uma enchente atingiu a cidade, derrubando parte de seu patrimônio cultural. Essa perda baixou a autoestima da população e vários agenciamentos religiosos e de políticas culturais emergiram no processo de recuperação da cidade. Através de uma abordagem fenomenológica, busca-se descrever e analisar a dinâmica desses agenciamentos na realização da Festa do Divino desse ano, evidenciando os fluxos identitários que atravessam os campos da religião e da cultura, buscando se sobrepor na produção do evento.The article analyzes some transformations in the traditional Festival of the Holy Spirit held in São Luiz do Paraitinga, a small town in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. In January 2010, a violent flood destroyed part of its built cultural heritage. That loss lowered the population’s self-esteem and many religious and cultural-policy agencies emerged in the process of recovery. Through a phenomenological approach, the article describes and analyzes the dynamics of such agencies in that year’s Festival of the Holy Spirit, showing the identity flows that cut across the fields of religion and culture, and their overlapping in the production of the event.

Para ello, participaron de la investigación 07 hombres y 10 mujeres gitanas. Se realizaron entrevistas individuales con un guión semi-estructurado y se hizo el análisis de los datos por medio del software ALCESTE y del análisis del contenido. Los resultados demostraron que la cultura gitana posee aspectos singulares, con dos pilares aparentemente fundamentales para su estructuración - relaciones parentales y relaciones de género. Al dinamizar esas dimensiones, encontramos otras características importantes, como creencias religiosas, respeto por los ancianos, fidelidad en los acuerdos realizados y control de la virginidad femenina hasta el matrimonio.AbstractThis study aimed to know how gypsy men and women produce their ethnic identity through the relationship they establish between their community and the non-gypsy world. For that, 07 gypsy men and 10 gypsy women participated in this research. Individual interviews have been carried out with semistructured script and the data analysis was done using the software ALCESTE and the Content Analysis. The results have demonstrated that the gypsyculture has singular aspects, with two apparently fundamental pillars for their structuring - parental relationship and gender subjects. Applying dynamics to those dimensions, we find other important themes in the organization of this ethnic group, like religious beliefs, respect to the elderly, fidelity to theagreements and control of the female virginity until marriage.

    Full Text Available A relação entre as demandas da cultura e a interferência política do Estado na esfera da educação foi um dos temas mais importantes do debate intelectual na Alemanha desde o final do século XVIII até a unificação de 1871. A curva descrita por esse período, que tem Wilhelm von Humboldt e Nietzsche como seus dois extremos, constitui, em última análise, a própria trajetória do liberalismo no sistema de ensino alemão do século XIX. Ao reconstruirmos os elementos conceituais envolvidos nesse debate podemos não apenas resgatar as questões que permitiram ao modelo germânico alcançar o sucesso obtido na Europa de então como modelo pedagógico, mas, ao mesmo tempo, compreender como as filosofias de Humboldt e Nietzsche se caracterizaram, em certo momento, como um esforço de participar desta discussão

O foco desta análise será o percurso e a construção identitária de diversos protagonistas desta cultura, em torno de três dimensões interligadas: a etnicidade, a classe e o género. Para além de uma discussão teórica inicial sobre o modo como estas dimensões têm sido abordadas, pretende-se apresentar igualmente dados empíricos provenientes de uma pesquisa etnográfica realizada em Portugal, mais especificamente na área metropolitana da cidade de Lisboa. As conclusões a que se chegaram, ainda que específicas e contextuais, apresentam afinidades com outras sobre fenómenos idênticos, revelando-se importantes para a compreensão destas práticas e respectivas interpretações em diferentes contextos nacionais.With the present article we intend to explore the way the so called hip-hop culture, although globally available, tends to be adopted and adapted at a local level, hence creating both cultural convergence and divergence. The focus of this analysis will be the trajectory and identity construction of several hip-hop protagonists, considering three entwined dimensions: ethnicity, class and gender. Besides an initial theoretical discussion regarding the relevance of these dimensions, we also intend to present findings from an ethnographic research conducted in Portugal, more specifically in the metropolitan area of Lisbon. These results, although specific and contextual, show resemblance with other similar phenomena, thus being helpful in understanding these practices and corresponding interpretations throughout different national contexts.

    Full Text Available The article presents a challenge to cultural diversity through the study of translation flows between 1979 and 2002. With the help of network analysis or method "structural" indicators are used to measure cultural diversity and assess the recognition of different languages. For example, there is a clear decline in the diversity of exchange translation from 1989.Using this method, we also understand the changing structure translation flows and, consequently, the dynamics of these flows. Thus, it is possible when the structure flows translations are stable in the 80's: around opposing English and Russian languages, two major groups. After the fall of the Berlin Wall preferential translation relations between the official languages of the former communist countries disappear, while the centrality of English becomes more important. In general, the choice of language works to be translated is based, above all, on geographical and political considerations.In summary, network analysis provides a different vision of globalization. Thus, it seems important that tools like this to be integrated in future studies related to this issue.

Ce processus a vu le jour à partir de la revalorisation de la langue locale d’origine grecque (le griko et de la patrimonialisation de la tradition ethnologique du tarentisme et de la musique qui accompagnait le rite d’autrefois, la pizzica. Le succès de cette « renaissance » est pourtant ambigu et sa rançon pourrait être la vitrification et la vitrinification d’une société offerte aux touristes de façon esthétisante et exotisante. Les images proposées aux touristes et réappropriées par ces derniers finissent en fait par réintroduire les préjugés d’une terre hors du temps et de l’histoire qui séduit par son caractère primitif.

    Electro-catalysts were prepared using new routes. Chemical Ultrasound Deposition (CUD) method: aqueous solution of nickel nitrate and citric acid was ultrasound vaporized and deposited on heated Ytria-stabilized Zirconia (YSZ). Resin impregnation (IPR) method: nickel oxide and YSZ were mixed, added to phenolic resins, precipitated in acidic water and milled. Wet impregnation method (IMP) was used for comparison: YSZ and an aqueous solution of nickel nitrate and citric acid were mixed, followed by evaporation, drying and calcination. The catalysts were evaluated for methane steam reforming in a quartz reactor. The reactions were conducted for one hour with no significant catalytic activity loss. In reactions with 100 mg of catalyst and a mixture consisting of methane and steam (3:1), IPR catalyst showed activity higher and better stability than those by IMP. On other tests, the reform was conducted with 100 mg of catalyst and methane to steam of 10. The IPR catalyst activity was so high that the reaction approached equilibrium conditions. Anode/electrolyte/cathode units (A/E/C) were prepared with the above catalysts as follows: the anode was a catalyst porous layer; the electrolyte an YSZ dense layer; and the cathode an LSM porous layer; graphite powder formed the material porosity. The two first layers, in powder form, were put in a stainless steel cast, pressed to 4000 bars and sinterized. The cathode layer was subsequently added using tape-casting techniques followed by sintering. A/E/C units showed 40% linear contraction and porosity higher than 20%. For fuel cell tests, A/E/C was mounted in alumina plates with platinum current collectors. Unitary SOF cells were loaded with hydrogen diluted in nitrogen showing opened circuit voltage from circa 700 mV, for the CUD anode, to 350 mV, for the IPR anode. The unitary SOFC was loaded with methane for 15 minutes or longer, with no noticeable voltage loss. At 1300 K the SOFC made with IPR or IMP catalysts showed opened current voltages close to 500 mV, while CUD SOFC measured less approximately 300 mV. In conclusion, the SOFC opened current voltage might be related to the reforming activity of the electro-catalyst used as the anode. (author)

Conversion plants of 'Yellowcake' in UF{sub 6} use and process radioactive materials, as well as other substances normally found in the chemical conventional industry, inserting themselves in the organization profile that require a high pattern of definition, implementation and continuous improvement of their MS and, therefore, should consider an approach of management integrated system (MIS). Taking a UF{sub 6} conversion plant as focus, the correlation was performed among the Agency MS standards and those of the market - ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001, as well as with the Agency drafts standards on safety (DS316 and DS344), concluding that, in structuring an MIS, in compliance with the Agency MS standards, except for some adjustments, the ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and OHSAS 18001 are going to be met. On the other hand, the structuring of MIS should identify other requirements on safety, health and environmental, which also consider the conventional chemical and industrial characteristics that are out of the scope (ionizing radiation) of the safety standards of the Agency. The research proposes a documental procedure for a MIS applicable to this plant, providing elements for rationalization and contents of the identified documentation, for the promotion of the integration of the considered MS functions.

    In the last decades, the occurrence of solid residual deposits, known as black powder, in natural-gas pipelines, gathering systems and compression equipment from gas industries has raised increasing regulatory concerns in terms of radiological protection. Concerns are also raised about the waste disposal and management of the radioactive residues eventually produced. Recent projections indicate a significant increase in the production of natural-gas and its products, due to a growing commercial demand, which leads to the production of huge amounts of residues. Thus, more information is needed in order to allow a preliminary evaluation of the radiological profile of this type of industry. In black powder residues, the most prevalent radioisotope is {sup 210}Pb. The present work aimed to investigate the correlation between the chemical composition of the residue and the concentration of {sup 210}Pb, in black powder samples collected at Bacia de Campos, in the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The main objective was to generate information to regulatory authorities, to the National Commission of Nuclear Energy (CNEN) and to companies that produce natural-gas, such as PETROBRAS. Based on the information, the gas producing companies could elaborate radiological protection guidelines, and also decide about the need for implementation of a waste management program at the installation. The samples of black powder analyzed at the present work have confirmed the existence of such correlation between the concentration of {sup 210}Pb and chemical parameters. In principle, the present results make the use of such correlation feasible for preliminary evaluations of the {sup 210}Pb levels in natural-gas installations. On the other hand, given the geographic limitations, a broader study is recommended, in order to evaluate the investigated correlation, which could be used as a guiding tool for the Brazilian industry of production and processing of natural-gas.(author)

    An investigation has been accomplished to check the effect of temperature and austempering time on austempered ductile iron (ADI) properties by means of fracture toughness (K{sub C}) and fatigue threshold (∆K{sub th}) tests. The correlation of ADI microstructural parameters and ADI two mechanical parameters: KC and Kth, is evaluated. Three sets of samples have ben extracted from ADI casting Y blocks produced in industrial conditions.and austenitized at 900°C for 1.5 hour. The austempering process has been performed in the following ways: the first set was austenitized at 300 deg C for 4 hours, the second set at 360°C for 1.5 hour and the third at 360°C for 0.6 hour. These distinct austempering processes have been adopted in order to obtain distinct microstructures containing austenite with two different carbon rates and two ferritic cell sizes. The materials have been characterized by means of optical and electronic microscopy, X-ray diffraction and mechanical tests. All materials have presented equivalent fatigue crack propagation rates, fracture toughness in the range between 94 and 128 MPa·m{sup 1/2} and ∆K{sub th} in the range between 5,7 and 6,4 MPa·m{sup 1/2}. The experimental results have confirmed the effect of microstructural properties (austenitic volumetric rate, austenitic carbon rate, ferritic cell size, total matrix carbon content) on fracture toughness (K{sub C}) and fatigue threshold (∆K{sub th}). Further, it was found that following parameters: fracture toughness (K{sub C}), fatigue threshold ((∆K{sub th}) and impact strength are correlated with the total matrix carbon content and ferritic cell size.

    Purpose: to evaluate which method is the best to determine pre-surgically the size of breast cancer: clinical examination, mammography or ultrasonography, using as a reference the anatomopathological exam. Methods: this study has included 184 patients with palpable-or-not breast lesions, detected by mammography and ultrasonography, that were submitted to surgical resection of the tumor, with histopathological diagnosis of breast cancer. The same examiner evaluated clinically the largest tumoral diameter, through clinical examination, mammography and ultrasonography, and the measurements obtained by each method were correlated with the maximum diameter obtained by the anatomopathological exam. The comparative analysis has been done by Pearson's correlation coefficient (r). Results: Pearson's correlation coefficient between the anatomopathological and the clinical exams was 0.8; between the anatomopathological exam and the mammography, 0.7; and between anatomopathological exam and ultrasonography 0.7 (p<0.05). Pearson's correlation coefficients among the methods evaluated were also calculated and r=0.7 was obtained between clinical exam and mammography, r=0.8 between clinical examination and ultrasonography, and r=0.8 between mammography and ultrasonography (p<0.05). Conclusions: clinical examination, mammography and ultrasonography have presented high correlation with the anatomopathological measures, besides high correlations among themselves, what seems to show that they may be used as equivalent methods in the pre-surgical evaluation of the breast tumoral size. Nevertheless, due to specific limitations of each method, clinical examination, mammography and ultrasonography should be seen as complementary to each other, in order to obtain a more accurate measurement of the breast cancer tumor.(author)

    The performance of four different organic coating systems applied to carbon and weathering steel coupons has been assessed in this investigation. applied on the surface of carbon steel and weathering steel coupons. The coupons have been evaluated using five different tests, three field tests and two accelerated tests. The field tests were carried out at three atmospheric stations, located at COSIPA in Cubatao-SP, at Alto da Serra in Cubatao-SP and at Paula Souza in Sao Paulo city. The accelerated tests consisted of (a) exposure to alternate cycles of ultraviolet radiation/condensation combined with salt spray cycles (UVCON combined with Salt Spray) and of (b) exposure to alternate cycles of ultraviolet radiation/condensation combined with the Prohesion test. The performance of the coatings was assessed by visual observation and photographs, using a method based on ASTM D-610, ASTM D-714 and ASTM-1654 standards to rank them. The oxide phases formed on the surfaces of the non-coated specimens of carbon and weathering steels, exposed to the same tests performed with the coated specimens, were identified using three different techniques: X-ray diffraction, Raman microscopy and Moessbauer spectroscopy. In the field tests, the specimens have been exposed for 1, 2, 3, 6 and 9 months. In the accelerated ones, the results were obtained after 1340 hours (4 cycles) test. The main component identified in all the specimens collected from the field tests and from the UVCON combined with the Prohesion test was lepidocrocite ({gamma}-FeOOH). Goethite ({alpha}-FeOOH ) and magnetite (Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4}) were identified as the other two main phases present in ali the specimens. In the UVCON combined with Salt Spray test, the dominant phase was magnetite, followed by goethite and lepidocrocite. The morphology of the rust formed on the specimens was examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Structures corresponding to goethite and lepidocrocited were recognized on ali specimens, except those exposed to the UVCON combined with Salt Spray testo In this case, the structures corresponding to the phases magnetite and goethite were more frequently observed than that of lepidocrocite. The weathering steel specimens, in general, presented a more compact and less porous rust layer, than that of the carbon steel specimens. The atmosphere of the COSIPA station can be considered to be the most aggressive one compared to that of Alto da Serra and Paula Souza stations, because the oxide layer on its specimens was more irregular and porous than that on the specimens exposed at the other two stations. In the specimens from the Paula Souza station, the oxide layer was found to be more compact, and its atmosphere can be considered to be the least aggressive of the three locations. (author)

  15. Effets Josephson generalises entre antiferroaimants et entre supraconducteurs antiferromagnetiques

    Chasse, Dominique

    L'effet Josephson est generalement presente comme le resultat de l'effet tunnel coherent de paires de Cooper a travers une jonction tunnel entre deux supraconducteurs, mais il est possible de l'expliquer dans un contexte plus general. Par exemple, Esposito & al. ont recemment demontre que l'effet Josephson DC peut etre decrit a l'aide du boson pseudo-Goldstone de deux systemes couples brisant chacun la symetrie abelienne U(1). Puisque cette description se generalise de facon naturelle a des brisures de symetries continues non-abeliennes, l'equivalent de l'effet Josephson devrait donc exister pour des types d'ordre a longue portee differents de la supraconductivite. Le cas de deux ferroaimants itinerants (brisure de symetrie 0(3)) couples a travers une jonction tunnel a deja ete traite dans la litterature Afin de mettre en evidence la generalite du phenomene et dans le but de faire des predictions a partir d'un modele realiste, nous etudions le cas d'une jonction tunnel entre deux antiferroaimants itinerants. En adoptant une approche Similaire a celle d'Ambegaokar & Baratoff pour une jonction Josephson, nous trouvons un courant d'aimantation alternee a travers la jonction qui est proportionnel a sG x sD ou fG et sD sont les vecteurs de Neel de part et d'autre de la jonction. La fonction sinus caracteristique du courant Josephson standard est donc remplacee.ici par un produit vectoriel. Nous montrons que, d'un point de vue microscopique, ce phenomene resulte de l'effet tunnel coherent de paires particule-trou de spin 1 et de vecteur d'onde net egal au vecteur d'onde antiferromagnetique Q. Nous trouvons egalement la dependance en temperature de l'analogue du courant critique. En presence d'un champ magnetique externe, nous obtenons l'analogue de l'effet Josephson AC et la description complete que nous en donnons s'applique aussi au cas d'une jonction tunnel entre ferroaimants (dans ce dernier cas, les traitements anterieurs de cet effet AC s'averent incomplets).

    Full Text Available No Brasil, por razões históricas, a história e a cultura de certos grupos estigmatizados estabelecidos no território foram negadas. No século XX, o mito da democracia racial e o elogio da miscigenação contribuíram para apagar a diversidade, as particularidades dos grupos étnicos, as desigualdades gritantes em seu acesso aos direitos fundamentais. Eles continuam a impor um racismo geralmente admitido com respeito aos descendentes africanos e das outras minorias étnicas, racismo que se ilustra também pela negação de sua contribuição à história nacional. Entretanto, no contexto de democratização da sociedade brasileira e sob a pressão de “novos atores sociais”, favorecidos por um contexto internacional propício, o reconhecimento da diversidade cultural e a luta contra as discriminações entraram na agenda política brasileira. Ela tomou, igualmente, a forma de políticas educacionais de reconhecimento e de valorização dos povos nos conteúdos de ensino. Trata-se, com essas medidas curriculares, de reabilitar a identidade e a história das minorias vítimas de discriminação até então ou de fazer com que uma verdadeira história comum surja dessa anamnese? No primeiro caso, o multiculturalismo conduz à justaposição de memórias particulares em que coabitam grupos dominantes e dominados de ontem. No segundo caso, trata-se de assegurar as condições de possibilidades para que as histórias particulares tornem-se assunto de todos. É por tentar trazer elementos suscetíveis de alimentar a reflexão acerca desta questão que nos propomos a analisar o conteúdo das instruções legais que organizam o currículo formal brasileiro, a partir de 1988, com relação à questão da diversidade e da diferença.In Brazil, for historical reasons, the history and culture of certain stigmatized groups established in the territory were denied.

    Full Text Available During the first decades of the twentieth century Spain experienced its most significant period of educational, cultural and scientific encounter with Europe in all its history. The new approaches and reforms, initially advanced by García Alix in 1900 and accomplished by the Junta para Ampliación de Estudios from 1907, became the model for many Latin-American countries. In particular, the celebration in 1910 of the centenary of the declaration of independence in Argentina became the origin for a very special initiative that rejoined Spanish immigrants and their descendants with the country of their ancestors, which by that time had learned how to overcome several decades of decline looking for Europe: the Institución Cultural Española at Buenos Aires. The ICE, through the JAE, established and supported two successive university chairs. In Buenos Aires, since 1914, the most important Spanish University Professors sat at the «Cátedra de Cultura Española» alternating Humanities and the Sciences. In Madrid, from 1928, some European authorities joined Spanish scientists at the «Cátedra Cajal de Investigaciones Científicas». These initiatives, which showed the splendour of what is being known as Spanish Silver Age, suffered a dramatic rupture with the outbreak of the Civil War. After 1939, a new Institución Cultural Española had to adapt itself to the new Spain, a very different country from the one they had met during the fist third of the twentieth century, while the Junta para Ampliación de Estudios was reincarnated as Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas.Durante las primeras décadas del siglo XX España vivió la etapa de convergencia educativa, cultural y científica con Europa más singular de toda su historia, a través de novedades y reformas que, esbozadas en la normativa ministerial por García Alix en 1900, y culminadas con apuestas como la de la Junta para Ampliación de Estudios a partir de 1907, se

Pourtant, derrière l’apparente évidence du « tourisme sexuel » comme expression de sens commun, rares sont les enquêtes qui explicitent la réalité concrète des échanges prostitutionnels. En adoptant une démarche ethnographique, l’article décrit le fonctionnement de Patpong, un quartier rouge de Bangkok dédié à une clientèle internationale. Par la description des offres disponibles, des revenus générés, des codes et des pratiques, la complexité de l’espace réapparaît. Il s’agit de donner à voir la réalité des échanges pour interroger l’articulation entre commerce et sexualité. L’analyse ethnographique du tourisme sexuel permet ainsi de souligner la diversité des pratiques et de rappeler que les formes les plus visibles — et les plus commentées — d’échanges prostitutionnels éclipsent trop souvent une pluralité d’expériences qui participe pourtant au succès de ces ruelles mondialement connues.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: En el artículo se propone el análisis de las relaciones culturales entre México e Italia y la primera «oficialización» de las mismas. Se ha considerado necesario analizar, antes de todo, el carácter distintivo de los conceptos de relaciones culturales y de diplomacia cultural y su evolución. Hay que ir hasta el siglo XIX para poder hablar del origen de la diplomacia cultural entre México e Italia, con la firma del primer acuerdo cultural de carácter bilateral a nivel gubernamental. Sin embargo, antes de profundizar el desarrollo en el siglo XX de la diplomacia cultural, se pretende ofrecer una pincelada de la difusión espontánea de las relaciones culturales desde los primeros encuentros entre mexicanos e italianos en el siglo XVII. ABSTRACT: The aim of this article is to analyse the cultural relations between Italy and Mexico. In particular, it seeks to examine the period in which these cultural relations were regularised and placed on an official footing. In order to understand Italian-Mexican cultural relations it has been considered necessary to focus, first of all, the way in which the twin concepts of cultural relations and cultural diplomacy developed. Moreover, to speak about cultural relations at a political level, when cultural diplomacy properly began, we will need to go back to the XIX century, when the first cultural bilateral agreements between the two governments were stipulated. However, in the concluding section, before going deeply into the complex field of cultural diplomacy, we will try to outline the flourishing and spontaneous cultural relationship developed after the first approaches between Mexicans and Italians during the XVII century.

    Full Text Available As relações socioculturais e econômicas, entre alguns grupos de pescadores artesanais, não colocam como entes antagônicos trabalho e tempo livre. Do contrário, tais relações celebram aproximações entre saber-fazer pesqueiro, lazer e vida, formando e conformando um todo societário. Inseridos nesse quadro, estão os pescadores artesanais do mar-de-fora da praia de Suape, no município do Cabo de Santo Agostinho, litoral sul de Pernambuco, distante 50 km de Recife. Este artigo busca desvelar a mencionada moral do trabalho e do tempo livre no fazer cotidiano de pescadores dessa Praia, com base na pesquisa etnográfica e na história de vida de 13 pescadores. No geral, identificou-se que há uma moral do trabalho que se confunde à moral do tempo livre, pois o cerceamento de uma delas representa limites à outra. Assim, para esses homens, definir o que é um ser liberto ou cativo liga-se ao encontro indissociável, em termos práticos e simbólicos, entre as referidas morais, o que é essencial para classificar o fazer-se pescador artesanal em seu sentido pleno fundamentado na desnecessidade do trabalho.

However, both mysogyny and gynophobia are still at work, giving as a result a «deflation of expectations» among women who enter the worlds of politics, information, corporations, economic power, knowledge, religion or art, and find a glass ceiling in full operation.

    Full Text Available On a beaucoup parlé, lors de l’examen des demandes d’autorisation de mise en culture de variétés transgéniques de colza, des risques d’hybridation interspécifique du colza avec les crucifères sauvages, et d’introgression de transgènes dans les espèces adventices [1, 2]. Les flux de gènes intraspécifiques ont moins attiré l’attention du grand public; ils sont pourtant bien plus probables. Les transgènes peuvent être disséminés dans le temps, par l’intermédiaire de repousses de colza apparaissant dans les cultures suivant les variétés transgéniques, à cause de la perte d’une partie des graines produites par les cultures de colza avant ou pendant la récolte [3, 4], et dans l’espace, par l’intermédiaire de semences et de pollen disséminés par le vent ou d’autres vecteurs tels que les oiseaux ou les insectes [5-8]. Les semences dispersées peuvent produire directement des repousses de colza dans des champs voisins, tandis que le pollen peut transmettre le transgène en fécondant des plantes de colza présentes dans ces autres champs. Ce flux de gènes peut être à l’origine de différents problèmes tels que l’apparition de repousses de colza résistantes aux herbicides, difficiles à éliminer lorsqu’il s’agit d’un transgène de résistance à un herbicide, ou la pollution de récoltes de colza classique par le transgène, quelle que soit sa nature, et l’impossibilité d’écouler ces récoltes dans une filière « non-OGM ». Il est donc apparu nécessaire et urgent de mieux évaluer ce risque et d’identifier les moyens de le maîtriser. Les premiers éléments de réponse ont été donnés par les plates-formes « plantes transgéniques » des instituts techniques [9, 10]; cependant, ces plates-formes sont limitées dans le temps et l’espace et il n’est pas possible d’y rendre compte de la variabilité régionale des systèmes de culture et de leurs effets sur le devenir des

En este artículo queremos dar una idea de estos episodios menos conocidos de la Resistenza partigiana y de la diatriba entre diferentes visiones de la misma.

    Full Text Available Consideramos importante rescatar el trabajo colectivo y acumulado que precede y sucede a la labor de intermediación académica que realiza una revista. Para ello recordamos una clásica frase prologal: el texto que usted tiene en sus manos. Con cierta ironía, porque quizás muy pocos de los lectores puedan tener entre manos y oler el papel impreso de Chasqui. Desde sus pantallas, sus tablets o sus teléfonos la intención es que se comprenda este número como un solo cuerpo. Y al mismo tiempo, como un esfuerzo colectivo. Alrededor de él están las propuestas, lecturas y análisis de cientos de autores, revisores externos y lectores.

    Full Text Available El presente texto presenta la cinematografía y, en particular, sus técnicas de creación (construcción como un referente para la proyección de la obra arquitectónica. Se hace una lectura sobre las posibilidades que surgen en el encuentro entre estas dos disciplinas, siempre desde una perspectiva del proyecto arquitectónico, es decir, desde su concepción-composición. El texto se construyó a partir de las técnicas propias del lenguaje cinematográfico, más relacionadas con la proyección espacial arquitectónica, para ir encontrando paralelos entre ambas expresiones artísticas. Con esta intención, se ha echado mano de bibliografía que, desde una perspectiva compositiva, ayude a comprender las posibilidades que representa esta relación. Igualmente, el texto hace referencia a reconocidas obras arquitectónicas que por su misma composición (y experiencia son muestra de esta actitud creadora. Estas obras ayudan a demostrar la propuesta del autor, y el texto trata de ser una invitación para releer su arquitectura desde otra perspectiva que pueda dar pie para la creación de nuevas obras arquitectónicas. Más que expositiva, la intención principal del texto es propositiva para el lector-compositor de los nuevos espacios.

  8. Corpo e tecnologias de visualização médica: entre a fragmentação na cultura do espetáculo e a fenomenologia do corpo vivido The body and medical visualization technologies: between fragmentation in the culture of the spectacle and the phenomenology of the living body

    Full Text Available Este artigo tem como objetivo analisar o impacto das tecnologias da visualização médica sobre a corporeidade no contexto da cultura do espetáculo. O sucesso dessas tecnologias para além do âmbito estritamente biomédico deve ser compreendido no contexto da visualidade espetacular. Tanto a visualidade espetacular como a visualidade médica colocam em questão o estatuto do Real corporal e oferecem a imagem do corpo como o próprio corpo, um corpo que é ao mesmo tempo real e virtual. O corpo virtual é um ícone da cultura do espetáculo, na qual a imagem atinge uma materialidade singular que compete pelo estatuto de realidade com a materialidade do corpo físico. A esse modelo se opõe nossa experiência encarnada do corpo físico unificado, como sujeito de ação no mundo, que implica o conjunto dos sentidos e que escapa na mera apreensão visual e objetivante da mídia e das tecnologias de imageamento. Portanto, a corporificação imaterial das tecnologias médicas é uma pseudocorporificação, na qual o que se perde é a substância, o corpo.This article aims to analyze the impact of medical visualization technologies on corporality in the context of the culture of the spectacle. The success of such technologies beyond the biomedical field itself should be understood in the context of spectacular visuality. Both spectacular and medical visuality challenge the statue of the corporal real and offer the body's image as the body itself, a body which is both real and virtual. The virtual body is an icon of the culture of the spectacle, in which the image achieves a unique materiality that competes with the materiality of the physical body for the statute of reality. Opposed to this model is our incarnate experience of the unified physical body as the subject of action in the world, involving our senses as a whole and escaping in the mere visual and objectifying grasp of the media and imaging technologies. Thus, the immaterial embodiment of

    The internet has recently grown from a fringe cultural phenomenon to a significant site of cultural production and transformation. Internet Culture maps this new domain of language, politics and identity, locating it within the histories of communication and the public sphere. Internet Culture offers a critical interrogation of the sustaining myths of the virtual world and of the implications of the current mass migration onto the electronic frontier. Among the topics discussed in Internet Culture are the virtual spaces and places created by the citizens of the Net and their claims to the hotly contested notion of "virtual community"; the virtual bodies that occupy such spaces; and the desires that animate these bodies. The contributors also examine the communication medium behind theworlds of the Net, analyzing the rhetorical conventions governing online discussion, literary antecedents,and potential pedagogical applications.

We will start by referring to the complex concepts of tourism and culture and to the synergies existing between them. We will define cultural tourism and present its appearance and evolution as well as its importance as a modern form of tourism. We will present the various types of cultural tourism with their characteristics and the specific features of cultural tourists according to their interests. We will also mention that there are advantages and disadvantages for any kind of tourism depending on the position – local communities, companies or tourists. For the future we will refer to the new partnership between UNWTO and UNESCO.

    The concept of Safety Culture was defined after Chernobyl's nuclear accident in 1986. It has not been exempt from discussion interpretations, adding riders, etc..., over the last 24 years because it has to do with human behavior and performance in the organizations. Safety Culture is not an easy task to define, assess and monitor. The proof of it is that today we still discussing and writing about it. How has been the evolution of Safety Culture at the Juzbado Factory since 1985 to today?. What is the strategy that we will be following in the future. (Author)

    Full Text Available Este trabajo se propone aplicar al cine el concepto de «fuente histórica». El uso de medios de comunicación como el cine está íntimamente relacionado con las necesidades y posibilidades de una sociedad, lo que implica una relación muy cercana entre el desarrollo social y económico de una comunidad, y los mecanismos que ella genera como canales de expresión y comunicación. El cine, conjugación de imagen, sonido y movimiento se convierte para la sociedades contemporáneas en una gran alternativa como fuente histórica, que provee al investigador ópticas diferentes de una realidad ya explorada. Un gesto, una mirada, un plano, una secuencia, se traducen en frases y párrafos, que generan una versión diferente de la historia, una redacción que se lee en imágenes y que narra otro punto de vista, un relato oculto que tiene todo por contar.

Na tentativa de recuperação do processo de organogênese desses calos, realizaram-se dois experimentos, utilizando-se os fitorreguladores ácido indolacético (IAA e 6-benziladenina (6-BA, cujas concentrações foram combinadas em dialélicos de 5 x 5 e 3 x 3. A composição de sais minerais e vitaminas baseou-se no meio de Murashige e Skoog, adicionando-se sacarose a 3% e ágar a 0,8%, e ajustando-se o pH final dos meios de cultura para 5,5. As condições para o dialélico 5 x 5 foram fotoperíodo de 16 horas de luz a 600 lux e temperatura de 25 ± 3°C. No dialélico 3 x 3, os tratamentos foram mantidos em câmara de crescimento a 2.000 lux, sob a mesma variação de temperatura e fotoperíodo. Em cada frasco, inoculou-se um calo com cerca de 1 cm³, totalizando quinze repetições. Avaliaram-se o desenvolvimento de calos, atribuindo-se uma escala de notas de 1 a 5, e a presença de plantas (organogênese após 30 dias de cultura. Observou-se o número total de plantas por tratamento, bem como o desenvolvimento das plantas em centímetro. No dialélico 5 x 5, a organogênese foi apenas incipiente em três tratamentos, porém as melhores combinações para o desenvolvimento dos calos foram de 0,5, 2,5 e 5,0µM de IAA com 2,5µM de 6-BA. No dialélico 3 x 3, houve a indução de plantas em sete tratamentos, sendo mais eficientes 25 e 50µM de 6-BA, sem auxina. O tratamento de 0,5 e 10,0µM de IAA e 6-BA, respectivamente, permitiu simultaneamente o crescimento de calos e a regeneração de plantas. Nota-se a influência das condições ambientais de manutenção das culturas, principalmente da intensidade de luz.Callus from Lycopersicon esculentum x L. peruvianum interespecific hybrids cultured in vitro lost their morphogenetic abilities after two

    Full Text Available Mental Health moves within a territory of uncertain boundaries: weather a behavior is considered healthy or sick depends on factors such as the historical moment, the culture and society in which the diagnosis is made or simply the professional’s ideology on the matter. In this paper, the borders between madness and sanity will be explored from the point of view of Radical Constructivism (Watzlawick, 1988. The classification criteria currently used in Mental Health units will be questioned through a series of examples which reveal their instability and fuzziness. The thesis behind this debate is that the autonomy of the patient should be considered precisely in this context of relativity. Though “mad”, they have equal rights to sane people to decide over their own existence and their own ways of leading their lives.La Salud Mental se mueve en un territorio con límites imprecisos: la consideración de un comportamiento como sano o enfermo depende del momento histórico, de la sociedad y la cultura en la que se produce o, sencillamente, de la ideología del profesional que califica ese comportamiento. Desde la perspectiva del Constructivismo Radical se exploran estos límites entre la locura y la cordura y se cuestionan los criterios de clasificación al uso en los Servicios de Salud Mental a través de una serie de ejemplos, que ponen de relieve la inestabilidad de estos y la oscuridad de los mismos. La idea que atraviesa este debate es que la autonomía de los pacientes cobra protagonismo, precisamente, en la relatividad del diagnóstico en Salud Mental, ya que, aunque “locos”, tienen igual derecho que los cuerdos a decidir sobre su propia existencia y su propio estilo de vivir.

    Full Text Available Several epistemic innovations (Knowledge’s advances may be considered to be a result of processes of knowledge transfer among different scientific scientific communities. In addition to generate knowledge in their different specialization’s fields, scientists use knowledge produced in diverse scientific fields. By reinterpreting von Hippel’s (2005 proposals, we analyze different sources of epistemic innovation and apply that model to concrete examples; suppliers (ISI, distributors (Nature, Science and transdisciplinary users of the scientific knowledge. We conclude that transfer’ processes can generate innovation if they are produced between knowledge’ networks with different innovation’s nodes. This kind of proposals can be applied to different types of knowledge (science, technology, arts, culture and even so to knowledge’s transmission to society.Algunas innovaciones epistémicas (avances del conocimiento pueden ser analizadas como resultado de procesos de transferencia de conocimiento entre diferentes comunidades científicas. Los científicos no sólo producen conocimiento en su ámbito de especialización, además son usuarios del conocimiento que otros han producido en campos distintos. Reinterpretando las propuestas de von Hippel (2005, se analizan otras fuentes de innovación epistémica, mencionando ejemplos concretos: los suministradores (ISI, distribuidores (Nature, Science y el uso transdisciplinario del conocimiento científico. Se concluye que los procesos de transferencia que pueden generar innovaciones se producen en redes de conocimiento con diferentes nodos de innovación. Estas propuestas pueden aplicarse a otras modalidades de conocimiento (ciencia, tecnología, arte, cultura, e incluso a la transmisión del conocimiento a la sociedad.

This article gives the proof that trash can be cultured as well so that a society can take benefits from the existence of it. This article parses ways of orderly managing it at schools, in this case two schools in Jepara. The results say that trash can be cultured by having an organization to manage the Trash Bank at schools and to train students to classify and recycle trash then take advantage of it by selling the collected and the recycled trash. It makes trash have good transformation of values, repelling against the prior stereotype. Finally, by taking example from Trash Bank management at schools, human can have so cultured trash that they would not be trapped by trash culture.

  9. Max Weber entre liberalismo y republicanismo

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Villacañas Berlanga, José Luis

    2005-12-01

    Full Text Available This article attempts to analyze the differences between social democracy and political democracy as modern processes, as these were understood by Max Weber. The archetype of modernity resides, from this point of view, in a convergence of both processes, as occurred in countries like the USA and Great Britain. Weber's diagnosis is that, whereas social democracy can be organized around liberal arguments, political democracy cannot advance without republican concepts like those of virtue, rigour, responsability and representation. For Weber, these values could only become present in Germany thanks to an adequate and democratic reception of Nietzsche, and in some way this reception could make sense of the former's work.

    Este artículo pretende analizar las diferencias entre democracia social y democracia política como procesos modernos, tal y como fueron comprendidos por Max Weber. Lo arquetípico de la modernidad reside, desde este punto de vista, en una convergencia de ambos procesos, tal y como se dio en países como USA y Gran Bretaña. El diagnóstico de Weber es que, mientras la democracia social puede organizarse sobre argumentos liberales, la democracia política no puede avanzar sin conceptos republicanos como el de virtud, rigor, responsabilidad y representación. Para Weber, estos valores sólo podrían hacerse presentes en Alemania a partir de una recepción adecuada y democrática de Nietzsche y en cierto modo esta recepción daría sentido a su obra.

Analizar las creencias de estudiantes inmigrantes y mapuche-huilliche sobre la relación entre deporte escolar y salud. Materiales y métodos. Se desarrolló un estudio multicaso cualitativo con enfoque etnográfico. Participaron 71 sujetos subdivididos en dos grupos: uno constituido por estudiantes inmigrantes que participaban de un programa de deporte escolar con principios comprensivos de enseñanza en España (n=47 y otro compuesto por alumnos de la etnia Mapuche-Huilliche que participaban de un programa análogo en Chile (n=24. Para la recolección de datos se aplican tres entrevistas colectivas a cada grupo. Resultados. Ambos colectivos perciben una asociación positiva entre la participación en deporte escolar y el desarrollo de la salud en diferentes dimensiones. Existen diferencias respecto a la interpretación cultural que ambos grupos otorgan al concepto salud y sus posibles relaciones con el deporte escolar. Sin embargo, en ambos contextos existen situaciones en que se considera de forma parcial la cultura de los estudiantes para trabajar sobre estos temas. Conclusiones. Estudiantes inmigrantes y mapuche-huilliche establecen creencias positivas sobre la relación entre deporte escolar y desarrollo de salud en sus diferentes manifestaciones.

    2008-04-01

    Full Text Available L'introduction de la démarche clinique en sociologie conduit à réinterroger les différences et les complémentarités entre la psychanalyse et la sociologie sur trois points : leur façon d'appréhender la question de l'inconscient; le poids respectif des déterminations psychiques et sociales, le travail qu'un sujet peut effectuer sur son histoire pour en modifier le cours. Ces questions ont été l'objet de nombreux débats. Le présent article met en perspective les positions de Sigmund Freud et de Pierre Bourdieu. L'un et l'autre incarnent et défendent des points de vue théoriques qui articulent une théorie de l'homme en société étayée sur une pratique de changement. Confrontation intéressante dans la mesure où les postulats de départ de ces deux auteurs sont très éloignés. Sigmund Freud cherche la clé explicative des comportements humains du côté du registre intra psychique, alors que Pierre Bourdieu la pose du côté de l'intériorisation des structures sociales. Pourtant à partir de prémisses différents ils se rejoignent sur bien des points. Ces convergences permettent de s'appuyer sur leurs approches pour définir les contours d'une méthodologie qui s'inspire tout à la fois de la psychanalyse et de la socioanalyse.Clinical sociology between psychoanalysis and socioanalysisThe introduction of the clinical approach in sociology lead us to reconsider the differencies and complementarities between psychoanalysis and sociology on three aspects: their way of taking into account the unconscious; the relative weight of social and psychic predeterminations; the work that can be done by somebody on his/her own history in order to modify its course. Those questions have been largely debated. The purpose of this article is to compare on those topics the positions of Sigmund Freud and Pierre Bourdieu. Both develop theories which include a conception of man in society supported by a change practice. The interest of this

  4. Talking Culture

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Holmgreen, Lise-Lotte

    When Danish businesses move production abroad, ‘culture’ is often seen as a huge challenge to the successful outcome of cross-border collaboration. Therefore, business leaders often seek information and guidelines of how to cope in the vast amount of literature on culture and intercultural...... communication. Much of this literature is based on functionalist approaches providing the dos and don’ts of intercultural encounters. This involves inter alia conceptualising ‘culture’ as a relatively fixed, homogeneous entity of values, attitudes and norms shared by members of a group, often leading readers...... to adopt dichotomised understandings and discourses about other cultures (see e.g. Hofstede 2001; Jandt 1998; Trompenaars & Hampden-Turner 1997). However, experience shows that the world in which intercultural encounters take place is not as simple and easy to categorise as these approaches may suggest...

    As the only species that evolved to possess a language faculty, humans have been surprisingly generative in creating a diverse array of language systems. These systems vary in phonology, morphology, syntax, and written forms. Before the advent of modern brain-imaging techniques, little was known about how differences across languages are reflected in the brain. This chapter aims to provide an overview of an emerging area of research - cultural neurolinguistics - that examines systematic cross-cultural/crosslinguistic variations in the neural networks of languages. We first briefly describe general brain networks for written and spoken languages. We then discuss language-specific brain regions by highlighting differences in neural bases of different scripts (logographic vs. alphabetic scripts), orthographies (transparent vs. nontransparent orthographies), and tonality (tonal vs. atonal languages). We also discuss neural basis of second language and the role of native language experience in second-language acquisition. In the last section, we outline a general model that integrates culture and neural bases of language and discuss future directions of research in this area.

    Full Text Available In this paper, we have investigated the concept of “Cultural Robotics” with regard to the evolution of social into cultural robots in the 21st Century. By defining the concept of culture, the potential development of a culture between humans and robots is explored. Based on the cultural values of the robotics developers, and the learning ability of current robots, cultural attributes in this regard are in the process of being formed, which would define the new concept of cultural robotics. According to the importance of the embodiment of robots in the sense of presence, the influence of robots in communication culture is anticipated. The sustainability of robotics culture based on diversity for cultural communities for various acceptance modalities is explored in order to anticipate the creation of different attributes of culture between robots and humans in the future.

    Full Text Available El presente artículo busca hacer un balance acerca del estado actual de la pluralización religiosa entre las comunidades indígenas asentadas en territorio colombiano; para este propósito compara algunos estudios de caso. Explora, además, el impacto de la expansión de los nuevos movimientos religiosos entre dichas comunidades. En general, como en el resto del país, el movimiento religioso más dinámico entre los indígenas colombianos es el movimiento pentecostal, cuya expansión ha tenido notorias consecuencias, puesto que ha modificado las estructuras comunitarias y los sistemas simbólicos e identitarios. Sin embargo, la hibridación entre el pentecostalismo y las tradiciones y creencias ancestrales ha dado lugar a nuevas expresiones religiosas: “pentecostalismos étnicos” que pueden ser observados como formas de resistencia cultural y mecanismos de adaptación frente a la expansión de una modernización voraz.

D'autre part, il est aussi nécessaire de s'arrêter plus à long sur la préhistoire du problème parce que nous nous occupons d'une des questions périphériques de la Romània Orientale. En disant "question périphérique", je désire souligner que l'intérêt des romanisants est attaché aux langues romanes qui possèdent une langue traditionnelle en écrit, qui sont nationales et représentent la langue d'une formation politique, c'est-à-dire de l'autorité d'Etat. Nous savons aussi qu'il y a en Occident un intérêt bien limité pour les langues et les groupes linguistiques qui ne sont pas représentants de l'autorité d'Etat, tandis que, d'autre côté, quand nous parlons aujourd'hui de la romanité orientale, nous avons en vue en premier lieu la langue roumaine littéraire, sa littérature, ainsi que la culture exprimée dans cette langue. Quant à l'aroumain, l'intérêt qu'il suscite est assez limité, soit comme dialecte soit comme langue, ce qui reste au centre de notre attention.

    2012-01-01

    Culture collections no matter their size, form, or institutional objectives play a role in underpinning microbiology, supplying the resources for study, innovation, and discovery. Their basic roles include providing a mechanism for ex situ conservation of organisms; they are repositories for strains subject to publication, taking in safe, confidential, and patent deposits from researchers. They supply strains for use; therefore, the microorganisms provided must be authentic and preserved well, and any associated information must be valid and sufficient to facilitate the confirmation of their identity and to facilitate their use. The organisms must be collected in compliance with international conventions, international and national legislation and distributed to users indicating clearly the terms and conditions under which they are received and can be used. Collections are harmonizing approaches and characterizing strains to meet user needs. No one single collection can carry out this task alone, and therefore, it is important that output and strategy are coordinated to ensure culture collections deliver the basic resources and services microbiological innovation requires. This chapter describes the types of collection and how they can implement quality management systems and operate to deliver their basic functions. The links to information sources given not only provide support for the practitioners within collections but also provide guidance to users on accessing the huge resource available and how they can help ensure microbiology has the resources and a solid platform for future development.

    Full Text Available Pesquisas recentes apontam para a importância da cultura frente ao processo desenvolvimento. Em um mundo globalizado e dinâmico, as relações culturais passaram a desempenhar um papel determinante dentro das relações sociais e econômicas, sobretudo com o surgimento da indústria cultural de massa, que passou a influenciar (moldar diretamente boa parte da sociedade global. Por outro lado, os estudos em âmbito local e regional demonstram que a valorização e o fortalecimento das identidades culturais locais são fundamentais para o desenvolvimento econômico e humano-social. A música, neste sentido, se caracteriza como uma expressão artística que possui grande capacidade de fortalecer essas identidades, desde que apresente elementos relacionados ao contexto cultural local. Sendo assim, o objetivo do artigo é identificar se a atual produção musical autoral da região fronteiriça entre as cidades de Ponta Porã (Brasil e Pedro Juan Caballero (Paraguai apresenta elementos simbólicos que reforçam a identidade cultural local. Para tanto, inicialmente discute-se a “dimensão cultural do desenvolvimento” a partir da obra de Celso Furtado. Em seguida a análise é direcionada para o papel que a música tem no fortalecimento e/ou criação de uma identidade cultural, destacando-se como ela foi importante no fortalecimento da identidade brasileira e sul mato-grossense. Por fim, apresentam-se os resultados da investigação sobre a atual produção musical na região fronteiriça estudada.

No obstante, la precarización laboral se ha mantenido, luego de una baja importante hasta el año 2007, en valores muy elevados. Partiendo de la idea central que la precarización constituye para el capital, una reducción de costos, el objetivo de este artículo es dar cuenta de los determinantes de la informalidad entre los trabajadores asalariados, estableciendo continuidades y cambios entre los años 2003 y 2013. Para ello utilizamos una metodología cuantitativa con fuentes secundarias de información, a partir de las cuales realizamos dos tipo de análisis, el primero de carácter descriptivo a partir del cual se busca dar cuenta de las características del mercado de trabajo argentino entre 1990 y 2013 y el segundo se realiza por medio de una regresión logística binomial, que permite acercarnos a los determinantes de la precarización de las condiciones de trabajo. En este sentido, se pudo observar que entre los años 2003 y 2013, se consolidó una precarización laboral, cuyos determinantes no lograron modificarse sustancialmente entre los años de referencia.

Las referidas fuentes documentales han aportado nuevas informaciones y datos sobre la creación en España en 1931, con el establecimiento de la 2ª República, de la Federación Cultural y Deportiva Obrera (FCDO, organización que en 1934 se adhiere a la Internacional Deportiva Roja (IDR, siendo el embrión del nacimiento del Comité Catalán pro Deporte Popular que presentaría el proyecto de la Olimpiada Popular de Barcelona de 1936 como alternativa a la Olimpiada de Berlín de 1936 de Hitler. Por otra parte la Internacional Deportiva Roja (IDR creó a finales de 1935 el Comité Internacional para la defensa de la Idea Olímpica, cuyo objetivo era coordinar los movimientos de oposición a los Juegos de Berlín. También la propia Federación Cultural y Deportiva Obrera (FDCO fundó en 1936 el Comité Español de Defensa del Espíritu Olímpico con este mismo fin. La Olimpiada Popular de Barcelona de 1936 permitió entre otras cosas expresar la nueva alianza entre Comunismo y Olimpismo, construida con discursos contradictorios apoyándose en el universalismo, la paz y la igualdad de razas.

    Full Text Available Durante décadas, diversas investigaciones sostuvieron que la función del padre era la de proveedor económico. No obstante, con los cambios históricos que fueron sucediendo en las últimas décadas, muchos psicólogos se interesaron en conocer cuáles eran las funciones del padre y qué le ocurría durante la gestación de su hijo. Igualmente, se ha comprobado que las características socioculturales y sociodemográficas del padre influyen en el ejercicio y la transición hacia la paternidad. Por ello, esta investigación se centró en analizar si existen diferencias entre los sentimientos, las emociones y las reacciones de los padres durante la gestación y el nacimiento de su hijo con las variables sociodemográficas: edad paterna, niveles de estudio, estado civil, situación laboral, cantidad de hijos, edad de su hijo y sexo de su hijo. La muestra de este estudio estuvo compuesta por 170 padres con hijos menores de dos años de edad. El diseño de estudio fue no experimental, de tipo descriptivo. Los instrumentos que se utilizaron fueron: cuestionario de sensibilidad paterna y una encuesta sociodemográfica diseñada para dicha investigación. Los resultados demuestran que existen diferencias entre la sensibilidad del padre con respecto a la edad del padre, la edad del hijo y el nivel de estudios paternos, y no se encontraron diferencias entre esta y el estado civil, situación laboral, cantidad de hijos y sexo de los hijos. A modo de conclusión, la construcción y el desarrollo de la paternidad dependen de diversas variables tales como el contexto social y cultural, su situación actual, entre otros y la conjunción de todas determinan la manera en que el padre se vincule con su hijo.

    Hospital safety culture is an integral part of providing high quality care for patients, as well as promoting a safe and healthy environment for healthcare workers. In this article, we explore the extent to which cultural humility, which involves openness to cultural diverse individuals and groups, is related to hospital safety culture. A sample of 2011 hospital employees from four hospitals completed measures of organizational cultural humility and hospital safety culture. Higher perceptions of organizational cultural humility were associated with higher levels of general perceptions of hospital safety, as well as more positive ratings on non-punitive response to error (i.e., mistakes of staff are not held against them), handoffs and transitions, and organizational learning. The cultural humility of one's organization may be an important factor to help improve hospital safety culture. We conclude by discussing potential directions for future research.

    Triandis, Harry C; Suh, Eunkook M

    2002-01-01

    Ecologies shape cultures; cultures influence the development of personalities. There are both universal and culture-specific aspects of variation in personality. Some culture-specific aspects correspond to cultural syndromes such as complexity, tightness, individualism, and collectivism. A large body of literature suggests that the Big Five personality factors emerge in various cultures. However, caution is required in arguing for such universality, because most studies have not included emic (culture-specific) traits and have not studied samples that are extremely different in culture from Western samples.

Tradicionalmente, la enseñanza se ha considerado como una profesión genuinamente vocacional; una circunstancia que, sin embargo, no siempre le ha favorecido. En estos momentos, a pesar de las dificultades que rodean la tarea docente, existe un alto número de estudian-tes que optan por la enseñanza y acceden a las Escuelas de Magisterio. Real-mente, nos podríamos preguntar si el docente -nace o se hace- vocacional hacia esta actividad profesional. Aportamos para ello, los datos de una investigación realizada entre estu-diantes de la Universidad de Sevilla, donde se viene a demostrar por un lado que, muchos eligieron la carrera sin tener un verdadero interés por ella; y por otro, que las Escuelas de Magisterio son en muchos casos, un motor esencial para llegar a despertar o, a descubrir entre los estudiantes, su verdadero interés e inclinación por la enseñanza.

  14. Safeguards Culture: Analogies from Safety Culture and Security Culture

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Naito, K.

    2013-01-01

    The terminology of 'safeguards culture' has been used loosely by safeguards experts as an essential element for establishing an organizational environment of stakeholders for the effective and efficient implementation of international safeguards. However, unlike the other two triplet brothers/ sisters of 3S's (Safety, Security, Safeguards), there is no formally established definition of safeguards culture. In the case of safety culture, INSAG (the International Nuclear Safety Advisory Group) has extensively dealt with its concept, elaborating its definition and key characteristics, and published its report, INSAG-4, as the IAEA Safety Series 75. On the other hand, security culture has also been defined by AdSec (the Advisory Group on Nuclear Security). In this paper, a provisional definition of safeguards culture is made on the analogies of safety culture and security culture, and an effort is made to describe essential elements of safeguards culture. It is proposed for SAGSI (the Standing Advisory Group on Safeguards Implementation) to formally consider the definition of safeguards culture and its characteristics. The paper is followed by the slides of the presentation. (author)

    Full Text Available El objetivo del presente documento es analizar las definiciones y la importancia de la confianza para crear relaciones de cooperación entre organizaciones de naturaleza distinta. Se hace referencia a los modelos de organización dominantes para acercarnos a los nuevos mecanismos de regulación social propuestos por la sociología para tratar la organización, debido a que en el contexto actual las nuevas concepciones de la organización del trabajo han promovido en las organizaciones formas distintas de competir en el mercado. Procesos de cambio que obligan a las organizaciones a construir una nueva identidad y a renovar los contratos psicológicos con sus integrantes. La noción de confianza ha sido llevada del ámbito social al organizacional con la finalidad de lograr acuerdos entre organizaciones y al mismo tiempo lograr el compromiso de los integrantes de tales entidades. Para que estas puedan funcionar bajo este marco de transformaciones requieren de relaciones de colaboración regidas por la  confianza; relaciones que se dan en los niveles individual, dentro de la organización, entre organizaciones e institucionalmente. Los diferentes niveles de confianza están presentes en las relaciones que entablan los individuos, tanto dentro de la organización como en su entorno. Algunas de las reflexiones en torno a esta problemática nos llevan a pensar que el papel de la confianza es dinámico e incide en la transferencia y el intercambio de conocimientos, técnicas y procedimientos científicos, tecnologías, productos, capitales, entre otros. Además, las relaciones fundadas en la confianza requieren de la suspensión del propio interés, en beneficio de unaorientación colectiva (Mangematin y Thuderoz, 2003. Sin embargo, también se reconoce que con todo y la posibilidad que el hombre tiene de deliberar y de generar confianza, es evidente que entre los hombres prevalecen tanto la confianza calculada como los deseos de altruismo para entrar

Estudio exploratorio retrospectivo, con una muestra de 313 estudiantes de pregrado. El 10.2% de los encuestados refiere haber sido maltratado en la Infancia y la violencia de mayor uso fue la violencia física seguida de la violencia psicológica. El 56.9% de las estudiantes encuestados han consumido sustancias psicoactivas en algún momento de la vida, y su inicio entre los 13 y los 18 años. Se evidencia maltrato en la infancia con manifestaciones de agresiones físicas, al igual que el consumo de sustancias psicoactivas, pero no se observa una relación estadísticamente significativa entre maltrato durante la infancia y el consumo de sustancias psicoactivas en la muestra estudiada.

    Full Text Available La dinámica de conflictos entre colonos y nativos en el Alto Mayo, ha dado como producto continuosenfrentamientos entre caseríos de colonos y comunidades nativas colindantes, así como una seriede procesos judiciales por “usurpación de tierras”, en los cuales no se logra una ejecución efectiva dela sentencia a pesar que esta sea favorable a los nativos, debido a la distancia social que existe entrelos operadores estatales y el conflicto real. Por su parte los mecanismos de convivencia entre colonosy nativos se inician mediante el alquiler de tierras, diseñada como una fórmula temporal para quelos colonos se retiren una vez vencido el plazo del alquiler, sin embargo la ampliación de los plazosprovoca que los mismos adquieran vocación de permanencia.Una serie de actores, de primer, segundo y tercer orden interactúan alrededor de las dos dinámicasde relacionamiento mencionadas; tales como las ONGs, el Estado, organizaciones indígenas, einclusive mafias de traficantes de tierras. Ante esta realidad tan compleja conviene hacer el ejerciciode plantear propuestas de adaptabilidad (o subsistencia de las comunidades nativas, en las quese visualice la supervivencia de lo local frente a lo global en lo que a demarcación de tierras de lascomunidades nativas se refiere.

    Deep exploratory drillings, i.e. those with more than 500 meters depth, have been performed in the Entre Ríos province, Argentina, in order to ascertain the presence of thermal water. Drilling began in 1994, and until now there have been 18 polls with very variable results in terms of mineralization, resource flow, and temperature. The aim of this study was to present a management model, which should allow operators of thermal complexes to further develop procedures for safeguarding the biodiversity of the ecosystems involved, both during exploration and exploitation activities. The environmental management Plan proposed is constituted by a set of technical procedures that are formulated and should be performed during the stages of exploration and exploitation of the resource, and consists of: environmental monitoring, environmental audit, public information and contingency programs. This Plan describes the measures and proposals aimed at protecting environmental quality in the area of influence of a thermal complex project, ensuring that its execution remains environmentally responsibly, and allowing implementation of specific actions to prevent or correct environmental impacts, as predicted in the evaluation of the Environmental Program. The audit of environmental impact includes and takes into account natural factors, such as water, soil, atmosphere, flora and fauna, and also cultural factors. The technical audit Plan was prepared in order to get a systematic structure and organization of the verification process, and also with regard to document the degree of implementation of the proposed mitigation measures. Finally, an environmental contingency program was implemented, and its objective was to consider the safeguarding of life and its natural environment. Thus, a guide has been developed with the main actions to be taken on a contingency, since forecast increases the efficiency of the response. The methodology developed here was adopted as the procedure

Il y aurait donc une corrélation entre les représentations de plantes ou d’animaux et leurs propriétés et comportements naturels. Nous explorons ici les relations entre les représentations de tubercules, d’humains, de certains animaux, et le monde mortuaire. LOS TUBÉRCULOS Y LA MUERTE. Análisis preliminares de las relaciones entre el orden natural y el orden cultural en la iconografía mochica. Se demuestra en este artículo que, para plasmar su iconografía, los Mochicas se inspiraron de sabias observaciones del medio natural. Entonces había un vínculo entre las representaciones de plantas y animales, sus propiedades y comportamientos naturales. Se indica aquí las relaciones entre las representaciones de tubérculos, de humanos, de ciertos animales, y el mundo mortuorio. TUBERS AND DEATH. Preliminary Analysis of the Relations Between the Natural and Cultural Order in Mochica Iconography. The objective of this article is to demonstrate that the Mochicas have designed their iconography system by studying closely their natural environment. Hence, there is a correlation between the natural comportments of the animals or the properties of the plants and their representations in the iconography. We explore the relation between the representations of tubers, human and animals beings, and the mortuary world.

    Full Text Available El presente artículo pretende ofrecer elementos para el debate y la reflexión en torno a consecuencias pedagógicas vinculadas a la interculturalidad y los necesarios, aunque a menudo olvidados, procesos de diálogo y traducción entre culturas que conlleva este término, de manera que contribuya a pensar sobre lo hecho, lo que se hace y lo que habría que hacer en su nombre educativamente. En un primer análisis, más general, se elaboran una serie de reflexiones en torno a las implicaciones económicas, sociales y políticas de lo cultural desde lo «multi» y lo «inter», así como posteriormente de la construcción de lo educativo desde la transversalidad intercultural como espacio ético, de manera que sirva a modo de un somero posicionamiento y planteamiento de los procesos de diálogo y traducción intercultural en las realidades educativas, a veces tan artificializadas. De ahí se pasa a enmarcar y repensar el concepto de lo intercultural y la traducción entre culturas en el marco de la teoría de la educación, ya que esto nos va a brindar oportunidades para visibilizar y discernir que no todo lo que se encasilla como intercultural lo es. Finalmente, a la luz de todo lo anterior, y con un ánimo propositivo, se establecen una serie de conclusiones en forma de reflexiones y condiciones para el diálogo y el trabajo de traducción entre culturas que nos permitan abrir espacios fértiles para mejorar los marcos teóricos, metodológicos y éticos de la praxis educativa acorde con la posición teórica intercultural aquí defendida.

  6. Aging in culture.

    Fung, Helene H

    2013-06-01

    This article reviews the empirical studies that test socioemotional aging across cultures. The review focuses on comparisons between Western (mostly North Americans and Germans) and Eastern cultures (mostly Chinese) in areas including age-related personality, social relationships, and cognition. Based on the review, I argue that aging is a meaning-making process. Individuals from each cultural context internalize cultural values with age. These internalized cultural values become goals that guide adult development. When individuals from different cultures each pursue their own goals with age, cultural differences in socioemotional aging occur.

    Andersen, Ida Gran; Jæger, Mads Meier

    This paper analyzes the extent to which the effect of cultural capital on academic achievement varies across high- and low-achieving schooling environments. We distinguish three competing theoretical models: Cultural reproduction (cultural capital yields higher returns in high-achieving schooling...... to be higher in low-achieving schooling environments than in high-achieving ones. These results support the cultural mobility explanation and are in line with previous research suggesting that children from low-SES families benefit more from cultural capital than children from high-SES families....... environments than in low-achieving ones), cultural mobility (cultural capital yields higher returns in low-achieving environments), and cultural resources (cultural capital yields the same returns in different environments). We analyze PISA data from six countries and find that returns to cultural capital tend...

    Full Text Available Este artículo presenta una descripción del funcionamiento de la disciplina escolar en una institución educativa de secundaria en Colombia. Tiene como objetivo explicar el origen del conflicto disciplinario, las situaciones que lo generan, la forma como la institución trata de lograr y mantener la disciplina, las explicaciones que cada uno de los actores da a las situaciones conflictivas y la manera como son vividas por ellos. El diseño metodológico de la investigación combinó una encuesta, entrevistas y el análisis de documentos de la institución educativa. El análisis de los datos se hace a la luz de planteamientos sociológicos que reconocen la enorme importancia que ejercen las estructuras sociales sobre la forma de pensar y actuar de los individuos, pero también resaltan la gran capacidad de los actores sociales para amoldarse a dichas estructuras y a través de sus ideas y acciones darle una dinámica propia al tipo de relaciones que establecen entre individuos en sus entornos de vida más inmediatos. Se pudo concluir que sobre la disciplina escolar no hay unidad de criterio entre los docentes, los directivos y los estudiantes, ni en su definición, ni en su importancia, ni en los medios para conseguirla; dichas diferencias producen tensiones y desacuerdos entre los miembros de la comunidad educativa.

  14. L’approche sociopsychologique de Horkheimer, entre Fromm et Adorno

    2010-08-01

    Full Text Available Le cadre du programme interdisciplinaire de recherche défini par Max Horkheimer dans les années 1930 doit beaucoup à Erich Fromm, qui a introduit la psychologie sociale dans la Théorie critique de la société. Or, une décennie plus tard, Fromm est la cible privilégiée des attaques et sa théorie apparaît désormais comme incompatible avec les positions défendues par Horkheimer et Adorno. Partant de ces tensions qui ont marqué l’histoire de l’École de Francfort, le présent article vise à éclaircir le déplacement qu’elles traduisent sur le plan épistémologique. Si Horkheimer et Fromm partagent des prémisses communes, le premier, dans son travail avec Adorno, se rapproche de manière croissante de la doctrine freudienne alors que le second s’en éloigne. Nous voudrions montrer que l’accord entre Fromm et Horkheimer fut surtout négatif puisqu’il portait sur la critique de Freud : les divergences entre les deux penseurs apparaissent clairement, dès lors qu’on pose en profondeur la question de l’usage de la psychanalyse pour analyser l’un des problèmes centraux de la théorie de la société, l’antagonisme entre individu et société.

Whereas these debates cover a large ground, spanning from media studies over design to cultural...... studies, they seldom reflect on the basic fact that visual culture in its present form indicates a huge collective creativity in some capacity, implicating the entire postwar era. From early focuses on the possible social and cultural roles of the image in the 1950s and 60s - e.g. in work of Roland...... and cognitive science. Thus visual culture points to an interesting inroad to - and a possible novel focus on - the image - pictorial representation - as an issue of cultural creativity. For one thing the current interest in visual culture goes along with a surge in concrete interest in culture and creativity...

  12. What Is so "Cultural" About Cultural Entrepreneurship

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Staffan Albinsson

    2017-04-01

    Full Text Available The term “cultural entrepreneurship” has been increasingly used during the new millennium, mirroring the rapidly growing importance of the “quaternary sector of the economy,” i.e. knowledge-based industries, including culture. Exploration of the literature in which the term “cultural entrepreneurship” is used does not bring a solid, clear-cut, and unambiguous understanding of its definition or meaning. The aim of this paper is to present various uses of the concept and to bring about some clarity in how the concept can be understood. Two overarching uses of the cultural entrepreneurship concept have been found: 1. the anthropologist’s and institutional economist’s use, which indicates the dynamic development of intangible cultural features such as symbols, myths, languages, beliefs, values, norms, rituals, and attitudes in and between societies, and 2. the arts development use, which indicates the dynamic development of cultural services, tangible goods, and individual or collective career promotion. Most authors use a cultural entrepreneurship concept without defining it. Authors could apply more precise definitions by using a quadruple bottom-line framework to position themselves in the nexus of financial, social, artistic, and cultural perspectives.

Between both approaches there is room for a range of options. Two of them are taken into account: the proportionalist approach, which conserves the scope of rights restricting their stringency, and it is argued in favour of the specificationist approach, which preserve the stringency of rights restricting their scope.

    En este trabajo se analiza la cuestión de la colisión entre principios constitucionales que reconocen derechos básicos. Se muestra que hay dos posiciones extremas: el enfoque subsuntivo y el enfoque particularista, que encarnan dos grandes concepciones de la racionalidad práctica. Entre ambos enfoques hay lugar para un amplio espectro de opciones. Se toman dos en cuenta: el enfoque proporcionalista, que conserva el alcance de los derechos restringiendo su fuerza y el enfoque especificacionista, a favor del cual se argumenta, que conserva la fuerza de los derechos restringiendo su alcance.

En México la política de liberalización comercial no se ha visto reflejada de manera generalizada en la riqueza de la población. Se evaluó la hipótesis de convergencia en el ámbito municipal de los estados de Chihuahua, Durango, Jalisco, Nayarit, Sinaloa, Sonora y Zacatecas; por los datos considerados en el estudio se puede argumentar la existencia de convergencia ¿ y ¿, pues en promedio, la desviación estándar en el año 1989 fue de 1.73 y disminuyó a 1.31 en 2006. La convergencia ¿ describe una relación negativa con un valor absoluto de su estadístico mayor a 2; con 95% de confianza. Cabe señalar que se cuenta con políticas sociales y sectoriales pero se carece de políticas públicas que promuevan el desarrollo regional.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho é refletir a liberdade em Sartre, tendo como base os textos: O existencialismo é um humanismo (1945 e Questão de método, a célebre introdução de Crítica da razão dialética (1960. A liberdade em Sartre é um tema filosófico e literário. No início do processo de sua trajetória intelectual, ela é encerrada dentro do cogito cartesiano: “penso, logo existo”. Apesar de ser concebida como uma pura subjetividade, ela também é entendida como projeto que se realiza na ação através do engajamento do homem no mundo. Posteriormente, ela é remetida para o plano histórico e relacionada com a necessidade no interior de uma tensão dialética entre objetividade e subjetividade. Mesmo nesta fase, o núcleo central do conceito sartreano de liberdade é conservado: a unidade entre projeto e engajamento.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo trata da relação entre a saúde dos idosos e relacionamentos sociais, bem como na interpretação e entendimento desta problemática sob a luz de dois enfoques teóricos: um macro, centrado na Teoria da Integração Social de Emile Durkheim e outro micro, centrado na Teoria das Trocas, de Peter Blau, com ênfase na Teoria da Eqüidade. A integração social (freqüência de contatos pode ter efeitos negativos na saúde, mas isto tem de ser medido pela qualidade dos contatos. Algumas conclusões apresentadas indicam que as relações sociais têm um efeito na saúde, no sentido de que as pessoas, nas sociedades modernas, esperam a reciprocidade, e, quando isto não é possível, principalmente na fase do envelhecimento, as pessoas sentem-se dependentes, e isso pode afetar a saúde de diferentes maneiras. Por outro lado, quando as pessoas têm problemas de saúde, elas experienciam uma falta de relações sociais balanceadas devido à incapacidade para trocar em bases iguais. Sendo assim, conclui-se que a relação entre relações sociais e saúde na população idosa pode ser uma relação recíproca.

    2015-06-01

    While anthropological research has long emphasized cultural differences in whether emotions are viewed as beneficial versus harmful, psychological science has only recently begun to systematically examine those differences and their implications for emotion regulation and well-being. Underscoring the pervasive role of culture in people's emotions, we summarize research that has examined links between culture, emotion regulation, and well-being. Specifically, we focus on two questions. First, how does culture lead individuals to regulate their emotions? And second, how does culture modulate the link between emotion regulation and well-being? We finish by suggesting directions for future research to advance the study of culture and emotion regulation.

Siguiendo a Graeme Turner (2010, nuestro estudio muestra que frente a la imagen generalizada Youtube como plataforma democrática en la que cualquier usuario o usuaria puede publicar sus vídeos y darse a conocer, es cada vez más frecuente que la industria cultural y el marketing se apropien de estos nuevos agentes culturales para enmarcarlos dentro del sistema tradicional de celebridad mediática producida, gestionada y controlada por los medios masivos. En concreto, analizamos cómo, al ser incorporados a este sistema, varios de los rasgos característicos de lo que puede denominarse “el estilo youtuber” se ponen en entredicho, en especial el carácter inmediato, íntimo y sincero de la interacción cotidiana con su audiencia. Nuestro análisis muestra que, dentro del sistema de celebridad mediática, la relación del youtuber con sus seguidores pasa a estar intermediada y regulada por la industria cultural y el sistema comercial, estableciéndose con ello una relación jerárquica entre el youtuber como celebrity y su audiencia que no observamos en sus canales de comunicación e interacción habituales.

    Cultural Astronomy is the reflection of sky events in various fields of nations' culture. In foreign literature this field is also called "Astronomy in Culture" or "Astronomy and Culture". Cultural astronomy is the set of interdisciplinary fields studying the astronomical systems of current or ancient societies and cultures. It is manifested in Religion, Mythology, Folklore, Poetry, Art, Linguistics and other fields. In recent years, considerable attention has been paid to this sphere, particularly international organizations were established, conferences are held and journals are published. Armenia is also rich in cultural astronomy. The present paper focuses on Armenian archaeoastronomy and cultural astronomy, including many creations related to astronomical knowledge; calendars, rock art, mythology, etc. On the other hand, this subject is rather poorly developed in Armenia; there are only individual studies on various related issues (especially many studies related to Anania Shirakatsi) but not coordinated actions to manage this important field of investigation.

    A large body of research in Western cultures has demonstrated the psychological and health effects of social class. This review outlines a cultural psychological approach to social stratification by comparing psychological and health manifestations of social class across Western and East Asian cultures. These comparisons suggest that cultural meaning systems shape how people make meaning and respond to material/structural conditions associated with social class, thereby leading to culturally divergent manifestations of social class. Specifically, unlike their counterparts in Western cultures, individuals of high social class in East Asian cultures tend to show high conformity and other-orientated psychological attributes. In addition, cultures differ in how social class impacts health (i.e. on which bases, through which pathways, and to what extent). Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

En 1967 la Akademische Druck-u Verlagsanstalt en Graz (Austria publicó la segunda edición de la obra original, sobre la cual se trabajó la presente versión en español. La traducción estuvo a cargo de la antropóloga María Mercedes Ortiz. Koch-Grünberg se dedicó al estudio de la filología clásica pero con el tiempo se fue interesando cada vez más por el estudio de los pueblos autóctonos de Suramérica. En 1903 realizó su primera expedición a partir del noroeste brasilero hasta Colombia, en la región comprendida entre el alto río Negro y el Yapurá, área muy poco explorada hasta el momento. La obra Dos años entre los indios resume los resultados básicos de esta expedición. El autor alemán presenta el relato de sus cuatro viajes e ilustra con un mapa la ruta de su expedición a partir del Amazonas. Además del noroeste brasilero, el autor recorre un área importante del territorio colombiano, especialmente la zona del actual departamento del Vaupés. El libro está escrito en forma de un diario de viaje en el que se destacan sus observaciones etnográficas y lingüísticas, especialmente en lo que respecta a la cultura material, el ritual, el arte, las diferentes lenguas nativas habladas en la región y las relaciones de afinidad existentes entre dichas lenguas.

    Full Text Available ResumenAcabada la Segunda Guerra Mundial, el Movimiento Moderno se debatió entre su continuidad o crisis, lo que llevó a numerosos arquitectos y críticos a formular teorías y adoptar actitudes disciplinares trasgresoras con el momento. Una de ellas fue la del arquitecto, urbanista y paisajista inglés Peter Shepheard quien desarrolló una actividad profesional, teórica y docente de la que se trasluce la relevancia del concepto in between como una de las claves defi nitorias del diseño arquitectónico en la segunda mitad del siglo XX. Para Shepheard el diseño moderno debía ser el encuentro entre la arquitectura, el urbanismo y el paisaje. Aseveración que vino precedida por diferentes tipos de obras arquitectónicas, proyectos urbanos, artículos y publicaciones sobre el diseño del paisaje y del jardínque le convirtieron en una voz de referencia en el contexto británico. Shepheard alentó a los paisajistas a convencerse de que las tres disciplinas anteriores convergen en un sola y que la responsabilidad de la joven profesión de arquitecto del paisaje es asumir el reto del diseño arquitectónico, urbano y paisajístico como un todo en la búsqueda y defi nición de espacios intermedios entre la arquitectura y el paisaje. AbstractAfter the Second World War, Modernism started to debate his continuity or crisis. This led many architects and critics to formulate theories and take up breaking disciplinary attitudes against that time. One of them was the English architect, urban planner and landscape designer Peter Shepheard who developed a professional, theoretical and academic career where the concept in between got relevance as one of the defi ning keys of the architectural design in the second half of the twentieth century. To Shepheard modern design should be the encounter between architecture, urbanism and landscape.

  5. La retractación arbitraria, entre principios y remedios

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Matteo Dellacasa

    2012-06-01

    Full Text Available En la jurisprudencia italiana se ha consolidado el enfoque según la cual el juez está legitimado para controlar el ejercicio del derecho de retractación discrecional. Ante una solicitud expresa de la parte, el juez, incluso, está obligado a verificar la conformidad de la conducta de quien ejerce el derecho con el canon de la buena fe contractual. La reflexión de la doctrina italiana se concentra prevalentemente en la dialéctica entre autonomía privada y control judicial, mientras es menos frecuentado el terreno de los remedios que siguen a la retractación arbitraria. En este segundo perfil se concentra el presente escrito. En primer lugar, se afirma que el control jurisdiccional de la retractación ad nutum es oportuno en relación con todos los contratos, y no solo en aquellos caracterizados por la asimetría de poderes entre las partes. El remedio generalmente aplicable a favor de la parte que sufre la retractación arbitraria se identifica con el resarcimiento del interés negativo: el contratante desilusionado puede obtener el reembolso de los gastos asumidos y el resarcimiento de las oportunidades de ganancias perdidas como consecuencia de la confianza depositada en la realización del negocio. En segundo lugar, se delinean los criterios que permiten identificar la retractación arbitraria. En fin, se analiza si la existencia de una relación de dependencia económica entre la empresa que se retracta arbitrariamente y su contraparte contractual puede justificar la aplicación de un remedio diferente del resarcimiento del interés negativo. El autor está orientado a responder afirmativamente. Si la empresa que sufre la retractación ilegítima ha realizado inversiones específicas –centradas en las exigencias de la contraparte y, por esto, difícilmente recuperables–, el resarcimiento del interés negativo ofrece una tutela parcial e inadecuada. Los remedios aplicables, en cambio, deben salvaguardar el interés positivo de la

En esta investigación se realiza un inventario y análisis de la lógica interna y la lógica externa de los juegos tradicionales de adultos que se practican actualmente en 11 regiones europeas. Entre las conclusiones más relevantes destacar que existe un gran repertorio de juegos psicomotores y sociomotores. Se trata de juegos con un alto componente competitivo, en los que se distinguen vencedores y perdedores. Los grupos son básicamente masculinos y mixtos y sin la presencia de un líder o capitán, excepto en las regiones más deportivizadas en las que si aparece esta figura. Se observa que muchas de estas prácticas se están transformando en deportes (regionales, sobre todo aquellas que son protagonizadas por el género masculino. En definitiva, esta investigación aporta datos muy relevantes para comprender la naturaleza de la cultura lúdica tradicional europea.

    Several nuclear power plant sites have been wounded in the crossfire between two distinct corporate cultures. The traditional utility culture lies on one side and that of the nuclear navy on the other. The two corporate cultures lead to different perceptions of open-quotes safety culture.close quotes This clash of safety cultures obscures a very important point about nuclear plant operations: Safety depends on organizational learning. Organizational learning provides the foundation for a perception of safety culture that transcends the conflict between utility and nuclear navy cultures. Corporate culture may be defined as the knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs shared by employees of a given company. Safety culture is the part of corporate culture concerning shared attitudes and beliefs affecting individual or public safety. If the safety culture promotes behaviors that lead to greater safety, employees will tend to open-quotes do the right thingclose quotes even when circumstances and formal guidance alone do not ensure that actions will be correct. Safety culture has become particularly important to nuclear plant owners and regulators as they have sought to establish and maintain a high level of safety in today's plants

  2. Culture-sensitive psychotraumatology

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-07-01

    Full Text Available Background: Although there is some evidence of the posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD construct's cross cultural validity, trauma-related disorders may vary across cultures, and the same may be true for treatments that address such conditions. Experienced therapists tailor psychotherapy to each patient's particular situation, to the nature of the patient's psychopathology, to the stage of therapy, and so on. In addition, culture-sensitive psychotherapists try to understand how culture enhances the meaning of their patient's life history, the cultural components of their illness and help-seeking behaviors, as well as their expectations with regard to treatment. We cannot take for granted that all treatment-seeking trauma survivors speak our language or share our cultural values. Therefore, we need to increase our cultural competencies. Methods: The authors of this article are clinicians and/or researchers from across the globe, working with trauma survivors in various settings. Each author focused on one or more specific cultural aspects of working with trauma survivors and highlighted the following aspects. Results: As a result of culture-specific individual and collective meanings linked to trauma and trauma-related disorders survivors may be exposed to (self-stigma in the aftermath of trauma. Patients who are reluctant to talk about their traumatic experiences may instead be willing to write or use other ways of accessing the painful memories such as drawing. In other cultures, community and family cohesion are crucial elements of recovery. While awareness of culture-specific aspects is important, we also need to beware of premature cultural stereotyping. When disseminating empirically supported psychotherapies for PTSD across cultures, a number of additional challenges need to be taken into account: many low and middle income countries have very limited resources available and suffer from a poor health infrastructure. Conclusions: In summary

    Full Text Available A participação de Foucault no GIP marcou o momento de constituição de sua teoria estratégica das lutas no contexto de uma interlocução com militantes marxistas. O enfraquecimento dessa interlocução foi acompanhado pelo início das pesquisas genealógicas e por uma reformulação conceitual que dispersou o problema da racionalidade estratégica em benefício da construção de uma discursividade propriamente teórica. As controvérsias atuais ao redor dos sentidos do legado foucaultiano, cujo movimento pendular tem variado entre Marx e o neoliberalismo, revelam os efeitos de uma trajetória intelectual que se dividiu entre a reflexão crítica do combate concreto e a elaboração conceitual de um experimentalismo radical. Este artigo pretende reconstruir os principais pontos e conformações teóricas dessa trajetória. The participation of Foucault in GIP marked the moment of creation of strategic theory about the struggles in the context of a dialogue with Marxist militants. The weakening of that dialogue was accompanied by the start of genealogical research and, consequently, a conceptual reformulation which, among other changes, dispersed the problem of strategic rationality for the construction of a properly theoretical discursiveness. The current controversy surrounding the way the Foucault's legacy, whose pendulum has varied between Marx and neo-liberalism, reveal the effects of an intellectual journey that was divided between the critical reflection of the actual combat and the conceptual formulation of a radical experimentalism. The article An Actuality in extremis: Foucault Between Marx and Neoliberalism aims to reconstruct the main points and theoretical conformations that trajectory.Keywords: Marxism, strategy, neoliberalism, engagement, intellectuals

En este proyecto, tras relevar los datos mediante observación no participante, se analizaron el diseño de las materias y sus foros a partir de los principios de la semiótica social multimedial. Este análisis muestra que los foros con intervenciones iniciales de múltiples acciones suelen estar incluidos en materias sin subdisiones en módulos semanales, mientras que los foros con intervenciones iniciales de acción puntual están insertos en materias con dichas subdivisiones. Esta relación entre el diseño y las intervenciones de apertura podrían de manifiesto dos lógicas diferentes: una lógica dominada por la página impresa, y otra dominada por la pantalla, respectivamente. Finalmente, se ofrecen sugerencias para futuras investigaciones, pues es necesario realizar más investigación con el fin de obtener resultados concluyentes sobre la relación entre los aspectos visuales y los aspectos textuales-discursivos en la educación en Red.

    Farmer, Jane; Bourke, Lisa; Taylor, Judy; Marley, Julia V; Reid, John; Bracksley, Stacey; Johnson, Nicole

    2012-10-01

    This paper considers the role of culture in rural health, suggesting that the concept and its impacts are insufficiently understood and studied. It reviews some of the ways that culture has been considered in (rural) health, and states that culture is either used ambiguously and broadly - for example, suggesting that there is a rural culture, or narrowly - indeed perhaps interchangeably with ethnicity, for example Aboriginal culture as a unity. The paper notes that, although culture is a dynamic social concept, it has been adopted into a biomedical research paradigm as though it is fixed. Culture is often treated as though it is something that can be addressed simplistically, for example, through cultural sensitivity education. Authors suggest that culture is an unaddressed 'elephant in the room' in rural health, and that exploring cultural differences and beliefs and facing up to cultural differences are vital in understanding and addressing rural health and health system challenges. © 2012 The Authors.

    2016-01-01

    People from other cultural backgrounds sometimes seem inscrutable. We identified a potential cause of this phenomenon in two experiments demonstrating that adults' mental state inferences are influenced by the cultural identity of the target. We adapted White, Hill, Happé, and Frith's (2009) Strange Stories to create matched intra-cultural and cross-cultural mindreading and control conditions. Experiment 1 showed that Australian participants were faster to respond and received higher scores in the intra-cultural mindreading condition relative to the cross-cultural mindreading condition, but performance in the control conditions was equivalent. Experiment 2 replicated this pattern in independent samples of Australian and Chilean participants. These findings have important implications for cross-cultural communication and understanding.

    Observacoes cometárias e de vento solar sao comparadas com o propósito de determinar-se as condicoes do vento solar associadas aos eventos de desconexao (DEs) observados em caudas de plasma cometárias. Os dados cometários sao provenientes do The International Halley Watch Atlas of Large-Scale Phenomena. A análise visual sistemática das imagens do atlas revelou, entre outras estruturas morfológicas, 47 DEs ao longo da cauda de plasma do P/Halley. Estes 47 DEs registrados em 47 imagens distintas permitiram a descoberta de 19 origens de DEs, ou seja, o tempo em que as desconexoes iniciaram foi calculado. Os dados do vento solar sao provenientes de medidas feitas in situ pela sonda espacial IMP-8, as quais foram usadas para elaborar a variacao da velocidade do vento solar, densidade e pressao dinâmica durante o intervalo analisado. O presente trabalho compara as atuais teorias conflitantes, baseadas nos mecanismos de formacao, com o intuito de explicar o fenômeno cíclico dos DEs, ou seja, os efeitos de producao iônica, os efeitos de pressao e os efeitos de reconexao magnética sao analisados. Para cada uma das 19 origens de DEs comparou-se a densidade com a respectiva velocidade do vento solar com o intuito de determinar-se uma possível correlacao entre estas origens e os efeitos de pressao dinâmica. Quando da ocorrência de 6 origens de DEs o IMP-8 nao realizou medidas, nos outros 13 casos 10 origens (77%) mostraram uma anticorrelacao entre velocidade e densidade e apenas 3 (23%) revelaram uma tendência similar entre velocidade e densidade. Portanto, a análise inicial demonstra uma fraca correlacao entre as origens dos DEs e os efeitos de pressao.

    Safety Culture is something that we have actively worked with in the nuclear industry for a long time. Formally, it has been on the agenda since the Chernobyl accident. However, the work with creating a safe organizational culture can of course be traced back even further in time. Over the years a lot has happened in how we are approaching the concept of safety culture and especially how we look upon the human being as a part of the system and how we as humans interact with the organization and technology. For an organization to have a culture that promotes safety it is essential to create an ownership of safety with all workers within the site. To create this ownership it is vital to have the undivided commitment of the management. It all starts with the fundamental values of the organization. These values must then be concluded in firm expectations of behaviors that apply to all workers and management. This could be referred to as expectation of a Professional Behavior that allows us to live up to the company values. At OKG nuclear power plant, a successful Business Improvement Program was recently carried out with intention to develop and contribute to the maturity of the organization in terms of safety. One of the sub-programs of the program was called Professional Behavior - With purpose of making safety into a corporate culture. At OKG, Safety culture is something that systematically been addressed and worked with since 2004. Even though the Safety Culture program could be considered to already have reached a certain level of maturity the Business Improvement program helped the organization to lay the foundation for further development by clarify expected behaviors that was firmly cemented in to the corporate values.

El punto de partida es, en razón de los bienes de los que estamos hablando, la conservación de los mismos y la preservación del espíritu que representan. Pero esto ha de ser combinado con el hecho de que el patrimonio vive una creciente presión para ser adaptado a un uso turístico, hecho relacionado con el progresivo aumento del turismo cultural. La utilización de algunos instrumentos básicos permitirá que los procesos de interacción entre el sector turístico y el sector del patrimonio cultural permitan, no solo encontrar el equilibrio entre ambos, sino mejorar el rendimiento de los dos sectores.

    Background Although there is some evidence of the posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) construct's cross cultural validity, trauma-related disorders may vary across cultures, and the same may be true for treatments that address such conditions. Experienced therapists tailor psychotherapy to each patient's particular situation, to the nature of the patient's psychopathology, to the stage of therapy, and so on. In addition, culture-sensitive psychotherapists try to understand how culture enhances the meaning of their patient's life history, the cultural components of their illness and help-seeking behaviors, as well as their expectations with regard to treatment. We cannot take for granted that all treatment-seeking trauma survivors speak our language or share our cultural values. Therefore, we need to increase our cultural competencies. Methods The authors of this article are clinicians and/or researchers from across the globe, working with trauma survivors in various settings. Each author focused on one or more specific cultural aspects of working with trauma survivors and highlighted the following aspects. Results As a result of culture-specific individual and collective meanings linked to trauma and trauma-related disorders survivors may be exposed to (self-)stigma in the aftermath of trauma. Patients who are reluctant to talk about their traumatic experiences may instead be willing to write or use other ways of accessing the painful memories such as drawing. In other cultures, community and family cohesion are crucial elements of recovery. While awareness of culture-specific aspects is important, we also need to beware of premature cultural stereotyping. When disseminating empirically supported psychotherapies for PTSD across cultures, a number of additional challenges need to be taken into account: many low and middle income countries have very limited resources available and suffer from a poor health infrastructure.

    Full Text Available La accesibilidad de la población al sistema de salud constituye una de las principales preocupaciones de las políticas sanitarias. No obstante, son pocos los trabajos que profundizan conceptualmente en dicha noción. La mayor parte de ellos diferencia entre disponibilidad, accesibilidad y aceptabilidad, o entre accesibilidad geográfica, financiera, administrativa y cultural. En el presente trabajo se discute y analiza la noción de accesibilidad, definiéndosela como un proceso de articulación conflictiva entre demanda y oferta en salud. A la vez, se focaliza en la noción de accesibilidad cultural, la cual es repensada como una interfaz social, es decir, como un espacio conflictivo en el que se articulan marcos de sentido diferentes, en este caso el de los profesionales y el de los pacientes. Esto permite abordar los procesos complejos de apropiación, traducción y reconfiguración de los conocimientos y recomendaciones que se dan en este vínculo.

  8. Culture and psychiatric diagnosis.

    Lewis-Fernández, Roberto; Aggarwal, Neil Krishan

    2013-01-01

    Since the publication of DSM-IV in 1994, neurobiologists and anthropologists have criticized the rigidity of its diagnostic criteria that appear to exclude whole classes of alternate illness presentations, as well as the lack of attention in contemporary psychiatric nosology to the role of contextual factors in the emergence and characteristics of psychopathology. Experts in culture and mental health have responded to these criticisms by revising the very process of diagnosis for DSM-5. Specifically, the DSM-5 Cultural Issues Subgroup has recommended that concepts of culture be included more prominently in several areas: an introductory chapter on Cultural Aspects of Psychiatric Diagnosis - composed of a conceptual introduction, a revised Outline for Cultural Formulation, a Cultural Formulation Interview that operationalizes this Outline, and a glossary on cultural concepts of distress - as well as material directly related to culture that is incorporated into the description of each disorder. This chapter surveys these recommendations to demonstrate how culture and context interact with psychiatric diagnosis at multiple levels. A greater appreciation of the interplay between culture, context, and biology can help clinicians improve diagnostic and treatment planning. Copyright © 2013 APA*

Por essa razão, manter bom relacionamento com esse público é essencial para os fabricantes de produtos, especialmente no varejo multimarca. O objetivo neste artigo é analisar como as ações de relacionamento são aplicadas pelos fabricantes e percebidas pelos vendedores varejistas da perspectiva do marketing de relacionamento. Para isso, foi feita pesquisa bibliográfica, além de pesquisa de campo envolvendo entrevistas em profundidade com fabricantes e vendedores de redes varejistas do setor de eletrodomésticos. Muito embora sejam rotuladas de ações de relacionamento, a maior parte das ações praticadas pelos fabricantes junto aos vendedores do varejo consiste em campanhas promocionais de vendas. Essas ações apresentam efeito efêmero e são aplicadas para resolução de problemas pontuais de vendas pontuais, o que não contribui para a formação de relacionamento mais consistente entre fabricantes e vendedores. Os resultados a que se chegou neste estudo indicaram que o relacionamento entre fabricantes e vendedores não é ruim, mas está distante do conceito de marketing de relacionamento. Na conclusão são apresentadas possibilidades para se estabelecer um programa de relacionamento junto aos vendedores varejistas.

    Full Text Available Este artigo trata do conceito de figuratividade no âmbito dos estudos cognitivos da linguagem. Apresenta a polarização, herdada dos gregos antigos, entre o que se convencionou como figurativo e literal, o que resultou no entendimento de que pensamento e linguagem são inerentemente literais. Nessa concepção, o figurativo seria um recurso não natural, propositadamente utilizado como estratégia estilística. Assim, o uso da figuratividade passou a ser associado a prejuízos à suposta transparência da linguagem e dos significados a ela inerentes. Embora essa concepção não tenha sido suplantada, as perspectivas cognitivas contemporâneas que tratam do fenômeno linguístico como sendo intrínseco à cognição oferecem-nos uma outra visão acerca da figuratividade. A Teoria Neural da Linguagem, em particular, tem reforçado, teórica e empiricamente, a compreensão acerca dos mecanismos cognitivos envolvidos na construção de sentidos. De igual relevância, esse arcabouço teórico tem apresentado evidências de que as experiências corpóreas estão na raiz da construção de parte das estruturas mentais evidenciadas no uso da linguagem, de modo que a natureza peculiar de nosso corpo contribui para as peculiaridades de nosso sistema conceptual. A integração entre corpo e mente, de modo que emoções e abstrações devem ser conceptualizadas a partir de elementos mais concretos, de base corpórea, oferece novos contornos à explicação para o fenômeno linguístico da figuratividade.

Busca reivindicar nuevos paradigmas de las ciencias dentro de la problemática del agotamiento de los recursos naturales del hogar que habitamos, la tierra, y el papel que juegan las comunidades locales contra el discurso predador del capitalismo global, a partir de su existencia cultural y social. Este trabajo se divide en tres partes que proponen por analogía, un símil entre los momentos de cambio de la noche al amanecer de un nuevo día; de la misma forma en que podríamos pasar de paradigmas “clásicos”, a procesos sociales recientes que incluyen los conocimientos locales. La primera, llamada “la noche”, expone brevísimamente los planteamientos más comunes que el capitalismo y las corrientes positivistas de la ciencia, mantienen frente a la naturaleza. La segunda, “el amanecer”, es una de las partes más importantes del presente escrito, ya que realiza una crítica a la oscuridad de la noche, a los planteamientos del capitalismo global desde el marxismo, el post-estructuralismo y el género. La tercera, “nuevo día”, concluye que a la luz de estas nuevas perspectivas de análisis podemos comprender mejor la relación entre los seres humanos y la tierra. Estos nuevos conocimientos políticos, culturales, ambientales y globales, desde el centro y la periferia, están atravesados por vínculos de poder que proponen una posición integradora entre conceptos aparentemente contradictorios y suponen susuperación a partir de la conciencia que autogeneran buscando orientar el tema político hacia estos nuevos conocimientos dentro de una agenda global.

It will do so through the lens of organizational culture theory and taking into account developments in safeguards since the Iraq case of the early 1990s. The study will seek to identify the current characteristics of safeguards culture and how it has evolved since the 93+2 programme was initiated, as well as considering the roles of the most important purveyors of such culture, including member states and their national safeguards authorities, the General Conference and Board of Governors, the Director General, the Secretariat as a whole, the Safeguards Department and the inspectorate. The question of what might be an optimal safeguards culture at the Agency and among member states will be investigated, along with the issue of how such a culture might be engendered or encouraged.

    Cultural differences have been shown across a number of different cognitive domains from vision, language, and music. Mathematical cognition is another domain that is an integral part of modern society and because there are a fixed number of ways in which many math operations can be performed, it is also an apposite tool for cultural comparisons. This discussion examines the literature on mathematical processing in accordance with culture, summarizing the brain regions involved across various mathematical tasks. In doing so, we provide a clear picture of the anatomical similarities and differences between cultures when performing different math tasks. This information is useful to explore the possibility of enhancement of mathematical skills, where different strategies may be applicable in accordance with culture. It also contributes to the evolutionary development of different math skills and the growing theory that anatomical and behavioral studies must account for the cultural identity of their sample.

    This research provides experimental evidence for cultural influence on one of the most basic elements of emotional processing: attention to positive versus negative stimuli. To this end, we focused on Russian culture, which is characterized by brooding and melancholy. In Study 1, Russians spent significantly more time looking at negative than positive pictures, whereas Americans did not show this tendency. In Study 2, Russian Latvians were randomly primed with symbols of each culture, after which we measured the speed of recognition for positive versus negative trait words. Biculturals were significantly faster in recognizing negative words (as compared with baseline) when primed with Russian versus Latvian cultural symbols. Greater identification with Russian culture facilitated this effect. We provide a theoretical discussion of mental processes underlying cultural differences in emotion research.

    Seawater has occupied an ambiguous place in anthropological categories of "nature" and "culture." Seawater as nature appears as potentiality of form and uncontainable flux; it moves faster than culture - with culture frequently figured through land-based metaphors - even as culture seeks to channel water's (nature's) flow. Seawater as culture manifests as a medium of pleasure, sustenance, travel, disaster. I argue that, although seawater's qualities in early anthropology were portrayed impressionistically, today technical, scientific descriptions of water's form prevail. For example, processes of globalization - which may also be called "oceanization" - are often described as "currents," "flows," and "circulations." Examining sea-set ethnography, maritime anthropologies, and contemporary social theory, I propose that seawater has operated as a “theory machine” for generating insights about human cultural organization. I develop this argument with ethnography from the Sargasso Sea and in the Sea Islands. I conclude with a critique of appeals to water's form in social theory.

    Full Text Available Organisational culture discourse mandates a linear approach of diagnosis, measurement and gap analysis as standard practice in relation to most culture change initiatives. Therefore, a problem solving framework geared toward “fixing�? and/or realigning an organisation’s culture is usually prescribed. The traditional problem solving model seeks to identify gaps between current and desired organisational cultural states, inhibiting the discovery of an organisation’s unique values and strengths, namely its cultural capital. In pursuit of discovering and leveraging organisational cultural capital, a descriptive case study is used to show how an Appreciative Inquiry process can rejuvenate the spirit of an organisation as a system-wide inquiry mobilises a workforce toward a shared vision.

  4. Poverty culture and education

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available An individual and social groups do not have to be only affected by poverty in economic way, but in a cultural way as well. There is an expression 'poverty culture', which leads to the development of the theory of cultural deprivation. The use of the term poverty culture implies that behavioral patterns of the poor are adopted through education; adopted behavioral patterns are resistant to changes - and, as it is known, education of people, among other, should imply accepting changes. The inveteracy of the poverty culture implies living your own life, which is secluded from identified and dominant life of the ruling culture. Enforcement of poverty and social-economic conditioning influence the tendencies for specific behavioral patterns.

  5. Cultural Learning Redux.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tomasello, Michael

    2016-05-01

    M. Tomasello, A. Kruger, and H. Ratner (1993) proposed a theory of cultural learning comprising imitative learning, instructed learning, and collaborative learning. Empirical and theoretical advances in the past 20 years suggest modifications to the theory; for example, children do not just imitate but overimitate in order to identify and affiliate with others in their cultural group, children learn from pedagogy not just episodic facts but the generic structure of their cultural worlds, and children collaboratively co-construct with those in their culture normative rules for doing things. In all, human children do not just culturally learn useful instrumental activities and information, they conform to the normative expectations of the cultural group and even contribute themselves to the creation of such normative expectations. © 2016 The Author.

    Full Text Available At the time of globalization it is difficult to pretend avoiding music culture and identity from political, cultural and social developments. Thus, it is impossible for the music to be unshakable and to represent national identity by not taking and giving nothing to culture. The dynamics of life and the rapid development of technology make it impossible for the culture to remain unaffected in terms of sharing experiences social experiences. Culture represents our current course, both in terms of politics, also in the social and human aspects. Through the technology it is possible for our children to be equal with children of all other countries, to exchange information and to connect directly with all countries of the world. Musical education is one of the main factors of cultural development and preservation of national identity. Identity consists of everything we posses and reflect. We are those who distinguish from each other and have a common denominator compared to other nations.

  7. The Idealized Cultural Encounter

    2008-10-01

    Full Text Available The tourism is one of the factors of the contemporary development and of the intensification of the social relationship, typical of the capitalist production model. It is an activity that requires the use and the appropriation of natural and cultural environments, produced by work, to turn it into spaces of leisure and consumption. It is part of the current dynamic of the capital, which creates territorialities, like an answer to the crises of global accumulation, involving the market, the State and the Civilian Society. It is also a service that supports the recovering of the human work, to the progressive growth of the industrial, commercial and financial work relationships of the several international markets, besides, as an export product, to be constituted in one of the main merchandise of the foreign trade. It is a sector accustomed to mythologies, sometimes is considered the solution capable to solve the socioeconomic problems of the outlying countries and sometimes is seen as a savage industry, capable to destroy the identity of communities. This article reflects about the meanings, contradictions and challenges related to tourism sustainability, facing of the meanings of the development adopted by the government policies and its disconnection with the culture policies that may contribute, in value and guidelines, to the construction of the solidary tourism, turned to the foment of the cultural diversity and the living quality of the local populations.

Nevertheless, culture also makes humans less adaptive than economists assume for the homo economicus (because humans imitate m...

    Evolutionary models of cultural change have acquired an important role in attempts to explain the course of human evolution, especially our specialization in knowledge-gathering and intelligent control of environments. In both biological and cultural change, different patterns of explanation become relevant at different 'grains' of analysis and in contexts associated with different explanatory targets. Existing treatments of the evolutionary approach to culture, both positive and negative, underestimate the importance of these distinctions. Close attention to grain of analysis motivates distinctions between three possible modes of cultural evolution, each associated with different empirical assumptions and explanatory roles.

    Full Text Available Después de las reformas de finales de los años setenta, China consiguió su despegue económico a tal punto que, en la actualidad, se consolida como uno de los mercados más importantes del mundo, recibiendo la atención de investigadores y hombres de negocios a lo largo del planeta. En Colombia existen pocos estudios que hayan explorado las relaciones comerciales con China; en tal sentido, el presente artículo ofrece una amplia revisión de fuentes estadísticas y referencias bibliográficas, dando luces sobre las características y los factores que afectan las relaciones comerciales bilaterales. Los resultados muestran que, si bien China es un valioso proveedor de mercancías para Colombia, las exportaciones hacia ese país aún se encuentran por debajo de su potencial, y se genera un déficit comercial enorme. También muestra que las exportaciones colombianas hacia China se hallan concentradas en unos pocos productos y que dado el tamaño y potencialidad de esta economía, se deberían comenzar negociaciones comerciales que busquen la firma de un acuerdo de libre comercio que permita incrementar el comercio entre ambos países.

Analiza esta gradual extensión de la red parroquial desde 1730 –la creación de los primeros curatos– hasta la década de 1820 cuando la Iglesia experimentaría cambios decisivos en su configuración como consecuencia de las reformas rivadavianas. El trabajo apunta a dar cuenta de los ritmos diferenciales con que se organizó la red parroquial en distintas zonas de la campaña bonaerense y a identificar los momentos más relevantes de los cambios en la misma. Asimismo examina el clero rural: su peso cuantitativo según áreas y períodos, su composición interna y algunos rasgos de las gestiones parroquiales. En especial considera aquellas acciones que los eclesiásticos exhibían entre sus mayores méritos y servicios, como modo de reconocer lo que –en la época– se esperaba de su actividad pastoral en la cura de almas

    2011-06-01

    Full Text Available El objetivo principal de este estudio es analizar la influencia del aprendizaje organizativo (AO sobre la satisfacción y la lealtad en las relaciones comerciales entre empresas. Para ello se plantea un marco teórico donde se adopta como unidad de análisis la relación diádica que mantienen las empresas fabricantes con su principal distribuidor. En el análisis de los datos se emplean sistemas de ecuaciones estructurales con una muestra de empresas españolas. Los resultados empíricos obtenidos aportan evidencias acerca de que el AO del fabricante es un antecedente de los resultados alcanzados en los intercambios relacionales. Así, el mayor grado de AO de la empresa fabricante incide de modo directo en el grado de satisfacción del distribuidor principal y también actúa de modo indirecto sobre su grado de lealtad. Se corrobora además que dicho AO potencia de un modo directo los resultados empresariales del fabricante. Las limitaciones del estudio son las típicas asociadas al uso de la investigación basada en encuesta. Por último, la varianza del método común no fue un problema en este estudio.

  1. Cultural Aspects of Suicide

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Hari D. Maharajh

    2005-01-01

    Full Text Available Undefined cultural factors cannot be dismissed and significantly contribute to the worldwide incidence of death by suicide. Culture is an all embracing term and defines the relationship of an individual to his environment. This study seeks to investigate the effect of culture on suicide both regionally and internationally. Culture-bound syndrome with suicidal behaviours specific to a particular culture or geographical region are discussed. Opinions are divided as to the status of religious martyrs. The law itself is silent on many aspects of suicidal behaviour and despite decriminalization of suicide as self-murder, the latter remains on the statutes of many developing countries. The Caribbean region is of concern due to its steady rise in mean suicide rate, especially in Trinidad and Tobago where socio-cultural factors are instrumental in influencing suicidal behaviour. These include transgenerational cultural conflicts, psycho-social problems, media exposure, unemployment, social distress, religion and family structure. The methods used are attributed to accessibility and lethality. Ingestion of poisonous substances is most popular followed by hanging. The gender differences seen with regard to suicidality can also be attributed to gender related psychopathology and psychosocial differences in help-seeking behaviour. These are influenced by the cultural environment to which the individual is exposed. Culture provides coping strategies to individuals; as civilization advances many of these coping mechanisms are lost unclothing the genetic predisposition of vulnerable groups. In the management of suicidal behaviour, a system of therapeutic re-culturation is needed with an emphasis on relevant culture- based therapies.

Host societies frequently remodel their culture following the creation of a tourist resort. But, that does not necessarily imply an acculturating process, since what actually takes place is pragmatic cultural production work in response to the touristic demands that offer consolidated economic alternatives and livelihood. Culture change has been a concern in tourism anthropology studies ever since this field of research established itself, particularly concerning the changes host societies undergo. But that does not necessarily imply the phenomenon is to be analyzed exclusively under the focus of the acculturation paradigm, since researchers often come across the production of new cultural elements of a traditional character among host populations in their attempt to occupy new spaces from which to address the world. in fact, that applies to various social situations where local actors seek to display certain lifestyles and cultural traits in order to draw attention to their ethnic, regional, or national features. Therefore, the object of study no longer focuses on the gradual loss of local and cultural (or ethnic substance, but rather on the relative ethnicity triggered by and among translocal flows that may lead to the deliberate turnaround of different cultural aspects of the host populations. Based on those premises, this article deals with the investigation of a cultural change process, making use of the historic perspective that includes an analysis of the “strategies of cultural mobilization” activated by the social subjects that are constantly recreating themselves in the tourism areas.

  3. Assessment of Safety Culture

    A strong safety culture leads to more effective conduct of work and a sense of accountability among managers and employees, who should be given the opportunity to expand skills by training. The resources expended would thus result in tangible improvements in working practices and skills, which encourage further improvement of safety culture. In promoting an improved safety culture, NEK has emphasized both national and organizational culture with an appropriate balance of behavioural sciences and quality management systems approaches. In recent years there has been particular emphasis put on an increasing awareness of the contribution that human behavioural sciences can make to develop good safety practices. The purpose of an assessment of safety culture is to increase the awareness of the present culture, to serve as a basis for improvement and to keep track of the effects of change or improvement over a longer period of time. There is, however, no single approach that is suitable for all purposes and which can measure, simultaneously, all the intangible aspects of safety culture, i.e. the norms, values, beliefs, attitudes or the behaviours reflecting the culture. Various methods have their strengths and weaknesses. To prevent significant performance problems, self-assessment is used. Self-assessment is the process of identifying opportunities for improvement actively or, in some cases, weaknesses that could cause more serious errors or events. Self-assessments are an important input to the corrective action programme. NEK has developed questionnaires for safety culture self-assessment to obtain information that is representative of the whole organization. Questionnaires ensure a greater degree of anonymity, and create a less stressful situation for the respondent. Answers to questions represent the more apparent and conscious values and attitudes of the respondent. NEK proactively co-operates with WANO, INPO, IAEA in the areas of Safety Culture and Human

    Full Text Available L’histoire de la musique peut s’écrire comme l’évolution progressive mais déterminante de deux grands paradigmes technologiques, celui de l’écriture et celui du son. L’enregistrement sonore modifie en profondeur l’économie de la musique en inventant notamment de nouveaux modes d’invention du sonore et de nouvelles pratiques d’écoute du sonore. On élargit alors le domaine du musical en inventant l’image sonore. À l’instar des autres arts de studio, la photographie, la cinématographie, la vidéo…, la phonographie prend le réel comme matériau immédiat. L’effet de réalité qui en résulte conduit au glissement progressif de la musique comme objet cultuel (avant le xive siècle, à la musique comme objet industriel (depuis 1970 en passant par la musique comme objet culturel (entre le xive siècle et le xxe siècle ; ce faisant, le risque d’une « désorientation » est bien réel. D’où une cartographie floue entre culture, art et phénomènes de société. L’image sonore semble s’inscrire entre « misère symbolique » et imaginaire, entre l’industrie musicale et l’avant-garde.The history of music can be written as the gradual yet decisive evolution of two great technological paradigms: the paradigms of writing and of sound. Sound recording has profoundly altered the organization of music, notably through the invention of new modes of sound invention and new practices of listening to sound phenomena. It is precisely at this point that the field of music has been widened by the invention of the sound image. After the fashion of the other arts of the studio (photography, cinematography, video and so on, phonography has reality itself as its unmediated material. The resulting reality effect has led to the gradual shift from music as liturgical object (before the 14th century to music as industrial object (since 1970 via music as cultural object (between the 14th century and the 20th century.

    2014-01-01

    This special issue examines the transnational shape and shaping of lesbian lives and cultures in and across China, India, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It uses the expression "transnational lesbian cultures" to suggest that despite sometimes radically different sociopolitical and cultural contexts, the lived experiences of same-sex desire and their emotional attachments create particular affinities between women who love women, affinities that reach across the distinct cultural and social contexts that shape them. The articles brought together explore lesbian subcultures, film, graphic novels, music, and online intimacies. They show that as a cultural and political signifier and as an analytical tool, lesbian troubles and complicates contemporary sexual politics, not least by revealing some of the gendered structures that shape debates about sexuality in a range of critical, cultural and political contexts. While the individual pieces cover a wide range of issues and concerns-which are often highly specific to the historical, cultural, and political contexts they discuss-together they tell a story about contemporary transnational lesbian culture: one that is marked by intricate links between norms and their effects and shaped by the efforts to resist denial, discrimination, and sometimes even active persecution.

No obstante, la precarización laboral se ha mantenido, luego de una baja importante, hasta 2007, en valores muy elevados. Partiendo de la idea central que la precarización constituye para el capital una reducción de costos, el objetivo de este artículo es dar cuenta de los determinantes de la informalidad entre los trabajadores asalariados y establecer continuidades y cambios durante 2003 y 2013. Para ello, utilizamos una metodología cuantitativa con fuentes secundarias de información, dde acuerdo con las cuales realizamos dos tipo de análisis: el primero de carácter descriptivo, a partir del cual se busca dar cuenta de las características del mercado de trabajo argentino durante 1990 y 2013, y el segundo se realiza por medio de una regresión logística binomial, que permite acercarnos a los determinantes de la precarización de las condiciones de trabajo. En este sentido, se pudo observar que durante 2003 y 2013 se consolidó una precarización laboral, cuyos determinantes no lograron modificarse sustancialmente durante los años de referencia

    Full Text Available Filiación, o el compartir de un legado de generación a generación, es más evidente al considerar los principios específicos de la arquitectura. Este artículo examina cómo el legado de Le Corbusier fue transmitido a Reiko Hayama, mujer japonesa, pionera en arquitectura, y quien desde 1959 a 1965, forjó su carrera en Tokio trabajando para Kunio Maekawa, uno de los previos colaboradores “del Maestro” de la Rue de Sèvres 35. Posteriormente, decidió mudarse a París y trabajar para Charlotte Perriand y Jean Prouvé, previo a establecer su propio estudio de trabajo en los años 1976 a 2013. Este artículo se centra en las repercusiones del patrimonio de Le Corbusier en la práctica personal de Hayama. Sus reflexiones señalan que Maekawa y Prouvé le dieron paso a un camino que se situaba por fuera de los principios de Le Corbusier, entre los cuales se encuentran: una preocupación ética por el medio ambiente; un proceso en el diseño que deliberadamente tuvo en cuenta un contexto cultural y una forma arquitectónica derivada de un proceso tecnológico de razonamiento. El patrimonio del Modulor fue directamente asumido por Hayama, siendo este una herramienta operativa de suma importancia en la metodología Le Corbusiana.

    Full Text Available This paper situates musical meaning in culture, addressing music as social symbol and as ongoing process of meaning creation. Three examples of non- Western musical practice are used to illustrate the embedding of musical meaning in cultural context. The performance of an Australian Aboriginal song is shown to exemplify the interdependence of song style and social structure as a matrix for the emergence of cultural meanings; an example of North Indian performance is adduced to demonstrate the multi-layered nature of meaning as embodied in musical performance; and an example of collective festival performance from Nepal illustrates ways in which the structure of musical performance can mirror local cultural forms. Each of the three examples lends weight to the idea that music's meanings are often non-linguistic and reflect foundational schemas that are specific to the cultures from the musics are drawn.

Variance in team cultural values or on country of origin (i.e. nationality diversity) also has main effects on team functioning, and we highlight contextual variables that strengthen or weaken these main effects. We next review research examining the effect of variance in team cultural values on global virtual teams, specifically. Finally, we review research on how cultural values shape employees' receptivity to empowering leadership behavior in teams. We conclude by discussing critical areas for future research.

  6. Cultural dimensions of learning

    Eyford, Glen A.

    1990-06-01

    How, what, when and where we learn is frequently discussed, as are content versus process, or right brain versus left brain learning. What is usually missing is the cultural dimension. This is not an easy concept to define, but various aspects can be identified. The World Decade for Cultural Development emphasizes the need for a counterbalance to a quantitative, economic approach. In the last century poets also warned against brutalizing materialism, and Sorokin and others have described culture more recently in terms of cohesive basic values expressed through aesthetics and institutions. Bloom's taxonomy incorporates the category of affective learning, which internalizes values. If cultural learning goes beyond knowledge acquisition, perhaps the surest way of understanding the cultural dimension of learning is to examine the aesthetic experience. This can use myths, metaphors and symbols, and to teach and learn by using these can help to unlock the human potential for vision and creativity.

Cultural tourism includes, on the one hand, cultural tourism in urban areas – particularly historical towns and cities with cultural sites such as museums or theatres – and, on the other hand, cultural tourism in rural areas – where its main goal is to focus on communities, festivals, rituals, and traditions. From the point of view of the practice of urban or rural cultural tourism, tourists are, in most cases, presented what they wish to see: thus, authenticity can turn into inauthenticity and what is promoted is vulgar art or improper beauty, surrogate art or even pseudo-art – kitsch, represented by souvenirs that have nothing to do with true art.

No Brasil, as relações de trabalho sempre tiveram um forte componente de flexibilidade, uma vez que o emprego formal e o informal são igualmente importantes na economia do país. Apesar da informalidade presente no cenário brasileiro, trabalhadores qualificados brasileiros mantiveram vínculos de trabalho estáveis, com contratos CLT, ao longo da segunda metade do século passado. Entretanto, esse panorama tem sido modificado nas últimas décadas. Apesar da constatação dessas mudanças no mercado de trabalho, pesquisas que investigam a disseminação de diferentes tipos de contrato de trabalho no mercado brasileiro são escassas. Dados referentes a profissionais qualificados são ainda mais raros. Tendo esse cenário como pano de fundo, esta pesquisa tem como objetivo identificar os diferentes tipos de contrato de trabalho existentes entre trabalhadores qualificados no Brasil. Para isso, discute os resultados de uma pesquisa empírica e apresenta, com base na literatura e nos dados de 47 entrevistas com trabalhadores, 15 tipos de contrato de trabalho que se distinguem do padrão CLT. Os resultados mostram que, dada essa diversidade, as relações flexíveis de trabalho não podem ser tratadas como um processo homogêneo. Os dados também retratam uma realidade preocupante. Podemos dizer que existe um descompasso dentro do contexto brasileiro entre as relações de trabalho atuais e o ambiente no qual elas estão inseridas. A sociedade brasileira e a legislação trabalhista estão estruturadas com base nas relações de trabalho formais. As organizações muitas vezes não sabem

    Full Text Available Dos de los tipos de pitahaya mas cultivados en la Península de Yucatán, México, difieren principalmente por el color de su cáscara, el primero es de color rojo (Uqroo1, perteneciente a Hylocereus undatus, mientras que en el segundo es color amarillo claro (Uqroo2, hasta el momento también identificado como H. undatus; este último es mas dulce. En ambos tipos de pitahayas, se realizaron autopolinizaciones y polinizaciones cruzadas directas y recíprocas, con el propósito de evaluar el efecto en la cantidad de frutos que lograron su desarrollo. Se midieron algunas variables para detectar la influencia del progenitor paterno en algunas características del fruto. Los testigos se obtuvieron de flores polinizadas libremente. El diseño experimental utilizado fue completamente al azar, con 15 repeticiones por tratamiento. Se encontró que Uqroo1 es autocompatible, mientras que Uqroo2 es autoincompatible. Los testigos de ambos tipos alcanzaron el mismo peso, y los frutos de Uqroo2 logrados por polinización cruzada tuvieron un peso similar al de los testigos o fueron significativamente mas pesados. Algunas variables resultaron positivamente correlacionados; el coeficiente entre el número de semillas y el peso total del fruto fue de r = 0.84. La correlación mas alta (r = 0.97 resultó entre el peso total y el peso de la pulpa. En los frutos obtenidos por polinización cruzada prevalecieron las características del progenitor materno. Se recomienda cultivar la Pitahaya blanca con otro tipo de pitahaya, además de Uqroo1There are two types of pitahaya that are cultivated in Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. They differ mainly in the skin color of the fruit, one of them has a red skin (Uqroo1, while the other has a light yellow skin (Uqroo2 both belong to Hylocereus undatus (Haworth Britt. & Rose. The yellow skin pitahaya is the sweetest. The studies were conducted using the methods of self pollination and cross pollination, with direct crosses and

    Full Text Available Residential mobility is an increasing phenomenon among the population, but in particular among the old people. The retirement is usually a moment in which more and more people decide to change their place of residence. This is a decision which mainly responds to social, economic and cultural factors; nevertheless, it is also necessary for the study of the mobility to deepen in other geographic, environmental, familiar, social and cultural reasons. In this article, reasons that have impelled to old residents living in Madrid to change the place of residence (both in a definitive or temporary way are analyzed; for this, qualitative methodology has been used. It is necessary to know well those reasons, not only to plan places for retirement in the future, also to plan services and equipment that such displacements require, and for the contribution to the improvement of the quality of life of these people.

    La movilidad residencial es un fenómeno cada vez más habitual entre la población, y en particular en las personas de más edad. La jubilación suele ser un momento en el que cada vez más personas deciden cambiar su lugar de residencia. Se trata de una decisión que responde a factores de tipo social, económico y cultural, principalmente, aunque para su estudio también es necesario profundizar en otras razones de tipo geográfico, ambiental, familiar, social, cultural, etc. En este trabajo se analizan las razones que han impulsado a personas mayores residentes en Madrid a cambiar su lugar de residencia, bien de forma temporal o definitiva, para lo cual se ha trabajado con metodología cualitativa. Es necesario conocer bien esas razones, no sólo para planificar los futuros lugares de retiro, además de los servicios y equipamientos que tales desplazamientos requieren, sino también para contribuir a la mejora de la calidad de vida de estas personas.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Identificar tendências do padrão da cárie dentária em adultos brasileiros. MÉTODOS: Foram utilizados dados provenientes de levantamentos epidemiológicos realizados pelo Ministério da Saúde nos anos de 1986, 2003 e 2010. A experiência de cárie, expressa pelo índice CPOD (dentes permanentes cariados, perdidos e obturados, e a saúde dentária, expressa pelo índice OH-D (dentes hígidos + obturados relativo ao número de dentes funcionais, foram comparadas em amostras aleatórias de residentes de 35 a 44 anos de idade em cada região brasileira. As diferenças nas condições dentárias entre os anos foram estimadas por meio da razão dos valores dos índices, empregando-se análise de regressão de Poisson ajustada pela idade. RESULTADOS: Houve reduções no índice CPOD e aumento no índice OH-D em todas as regiões no período de 1986 a 2010. A região Norte, que tinha o pior padrão em 1986, apresentou o maior ganho em termos de dentição funcional. CONCLUSÕES: Tem ocorrido uma transição da saúde bucal para melhor nos adultos brasileiros. É plausível que a adição de flúor à água e ao creme dental, maior incorporação de serviços restauradores e a melhoria nos indicadores de desenvolvimento humano decorrentes de políticas públicas estejam relacionados a essa melhora.

    Full Text Available La chocolaterie Suchard à Neuchâtel (Suisse réalise des photographies de natures très diverses qu’elle diffuse dans des cercles plus ou moins restreints. En 1967, elle inaugure un entrepôt automatique, point d’orgue d’une restructuration quasi complète de la production et dont des clichés réalisés avant et pendant les journées « portes ouvertes » témoignent. En nous intéressant aux documents iconographiques relatant l’inauguration d’un bâtiment industriel chez Suchard, nous montrons comment l’image produit une réalité qu’elle n’incarne pas automatiquement. On montre ou on cache, on accentue ou on atténue en fonction des objectifs recherchés. C’est le cas aussi des légendes qui accompagnent les clichés, toutes axées sur la rationalisation mais n’évoquant jamais les conséquences sociales de la nouvelle stratégie productive. L’oscillation entre document et publicité est en prise directe avec le temps : celui du travail du photographe, celui de la sélection par l’entreprise, celui de la perception par les employés ou par le public, le temps du classement et de l’oubli avant celui de l’exhumation et de la réutilisation  des documents par l’entreprise pour une commémoration.

    Full Text Available El propósito del presente documento consiste en realizar un estudio exploratorio sobre los atributos demográficos y económicos de las ciudades de México en donde se concentra la clase creativa, es decir, aquel segmento de la oferta ocupacional en el mercado urbano de trabajo que se compone por profesionistas, profesores universitarios, investigadores, trabajadores del arte, espectáculos y deportes. El término clase creativa fue propuesto por Richard Florida (2002, y a este segmento de la población ocupada se le ha dado una connotación de ventaja competitiva para la ciudad en donde reside, de tal manera que se ha tratado de comprobar la relación entre el desempeño económico local y la presencia de dicha clase. Aquí no se utiliza a la clase creativa como variable explicativa del comportamiento económico local. Más bien se busca aportar elementos sobre las características de las ciudades con mayor intensidad de clase creativa en su estructura ocupacional. Para alcanzar el propósito se realiza un modelo de regresión logística multivariada. Los resultados permiten concluir que las ciudades donde se concentraba la clase creativa en 2010 eran preferentemente capitales estatales y/o con baja participación de la producción manufacturera en su estructura económica. Asimismo, los ocupados en la clase creativa tuvieron mayor tasa de migración interna con respecto a la población ocupada total. Los lugares de origen y destino de la migración creativa fueron ciudades especializadas, ambas en este tipo de ocupados.

    Full Text Available Métodos sensoriais descritivos são de grande importância na indústria de alimentos para definir a qualidade sensorial de um produto. A análise descritiva quantitativa (ADQ é um método muito usado para identificar e quantficar os atributos sensoriais de alimentos. As etapas para realização da ADQ são: recrutamento e pré-seleção dos candidatos à julgadores, levantamento e descrição dos atributos, treinamento e seleção final dos julgadores e avaliação dos produtos. Visto que a ADQ requer treinamento longo dos julgadores, uma nova metodologia descritiva por ordenação (ADO foi desenvolvida recentemente , na qual algumas etapas são semelhantes à ADQ, porém o treinamento e a seleção final dos julgadores não acontecem e a avaliação dos produtos é realizada por ordenação da intensidade dos atributos, sendo a ADO um método mais econômico e rápido. O presente trabalho comparou a nova metodologia descritiva (ADO com o método tradicionalmente utilizado, a ADQ, por meio da descrição sensorial de quatro marcas de requeijão cremoso. Os atributos que caracterizaram os produtos foram: cor, aroma e sabor característicos, gosto doce, gosto salgado, sabor de ranço, consistência e viscosidade. Observou-se correlação significativa (p<0,05 entre as metodologias para 62,5% dos atributos avaliados. Assim, quando o objetivo é identificar diferenças sensoriais mais acentuadas a ADO pode ser usada em substituição a ADQ.

    Full Text Available Siguiendo la línea de los trabajos que inciden en el papel de los recursos personales como factores de protección frente al estrés, la presente investigación pretende analizar la relación entre la autoestima y la percepción de estresores académicos en el contexto universitario. En concreto, analizamos en qué medida los niveles de autoestima (alto, medio y bajo influyen diferencialmente en el grado en que el estudiante valora como amenazantes diversas circunstancias propias del día a día académico. Se evalúan también qué factores de este contexto son los que el estudiante percibe como más estresantes. Participaron en el estudio 465 estudiantes de Fisioterapia de diversas universidades españolas. Para la medida de la autoestima, se empleó la Escala de Autoestima de Rosenberg. Los estresores académicos percibidos se evaluaron mediante la Escala de Estresores Académicos (E-CEA, que forma parte del Cuestionario de Estrés Académico (CEA. Nuestros resultados indican que las intervenciones en público, los exámenes y las deficiencias metodológicas del profesorado constituyen, por este orden, los principales sucesos que el estudiante percibe como amenazantes. Asimismo, se constata que cuanto mayor es la autovalía del estudiante, menor es la percepción del contexto académico como estresante

    Full Text Available El presente trabajo analiza el fenómeno de las descargas de contenidos audiovisuales –películas y series de televisión– que habitualmente practican los universitarios a través de Internet; sus actitudes ante las descargas ilegales y la formación que tienen en relación a la situación legal de las mismas. Estas cuestiones conforman una realidad que aunque a priori parece ser demasiado frecuente, se encuentra todavía muy poco explorada y es escasamente tratada desde una perspectiva científica en nuestro contexto. Los datos se obtuvieron a partir de un cuestionario diseñado ad hoc, administrado a estudiantes de tres Grados universitarios (Comunicación Audiovisual, Educación Primaria y Educación Social, por considerar que se trata de titulaciones en las que un conocimiento de base ético y legal ante las descargas de contenidos en la red es urgente y necesario para unos jóvenes que se están preparando con el propósito de dedicarse a la formación e información de los futuros ciudadanos del siglo XXI. Los resultados del estudio muestran cómo el consumo de contenidos procedentes de la industria audiovisual (televisiva y cinematográfica, es una práctica asentada entre los universitarios, que tienen actitudes claramente favorables hacia ella pero que prestan escasa importancia a cuestiones éticas y legales ante las descargas no legales, además de tener muy baja formación en estas cuestiones. Los resultados sugieren la necesidad de poner en marcha acciones educomunicativas para mejorar sus competencias informacionales y digitales.

    Full Text Available Os estudos sobre audiovisual no Brasil privilegiaram e reforçaram os lugares rígidos de distinções entre cinema e televisão. A presente investigação faz uma revisão deste processo de afastamento dos meios, considerando as disputas, os posicionamentos dos agentes e as negociações que atravessaram a história do audiovisual nacional. Apesar de distintivamente separados, houve importantes momentos de contatos entre cinema e televisão no país, que nos anos 2000 vão ser cada vez mais estimulados pela indústria audiovisual diante da tendência mundial da convergência cultural. O audiovisual nacional contemporâneo irá transitar entre continuidades históricas e tendências internacionais, apontando um processo de reorganização do campo no qual as fronteiras e lugares de distinções historicamente demarcados se movem
