Violence Research In Latin America And The Caribbean: A Literature Review, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq., Manuel Dammert Guardia

Fernando Carrión Mena

Latin America has long been a violence-prone continent. No other region of the world knows higher homicide rates nor has such a variety of violence. Political violence, guerilla movements and civil wars, bloody revolutions, brutal dictatorships, domestic violence, criminal violence, and youth violence are all well known throughout history. This article gives an overview of the historical development of violence in Latin America and the Caribbean, examining its specificities and changes. The focus is on the recent explosion of violence and crime since the 1980s. As a literature review, it summarizes the main findings of academic research on violence in ...

Quito ¿Metrópoli Mundial?, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq., Manuel Dammert G. Soc.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las ciudades no pueden existir por sí mismas; originalmente la relación con el campo fue su razón de ser y hoy en día es imposible comprenderlas –por la constitución de una ciudad en red– por fuera de su esencia relacional interurbana. Si la revolución industrial de mediados del siglo XIX generalizó la urbanización a nivel mundial, la globalización –sustentada en la revolución científica tecnológica en el ámbito de las comunicaciones– ha provocado que el vínculo y la articulación entre las ciudades del mundo sea un elemento constitutivo de su existencia. Por eso hoy el planeta es más interurbano que internacional ...


Fútbol Y Violencia, Las Razones De Una Sin Razón, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2011 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Fútbol Y Violencia, Las Razones De Una Sin Razón, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El conflicto es consustancial al fútbol, porque encarna una disputa entre dos bandos que buscan la victoria por todos los medios a su alcance. Pero esta disputa no siempre es pacífica, tanto que el juego esta impregnado por la incorporación de los principios, categorías y lenguajes de la guerra. Allí la estrategia y la táctica como organizadores pacíficos del conflicto. El disparo de misiles, la existencia de bombazos, el cobro de tiros libres y la falta máxima de un penal. Un jugador potente es el Tanque Hurtado, si tiene un tiro fuerte será el Cañoncito Peñaherrera o si el defensa ...

Tribes As Essential Partners In Achieving Sustainable Governance, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Indigenous peoples have modeled sustainable development around the world. Incentivizing the innovation and instillation of wind, solar, and other renewable energy sources can come in the form of public funding, including renewable portfolio standards, feed in tariffs and green tag programs. This article analyzes ways in which tribal communities are helping to expand cooperative good governance.

O Direito E A Cidade: O Papel Do Estado Na Organização Espacial Da Região Metropolitana De Belo Horizonte, Rafael de Oliveira Alves, Letícia de Melo Honório 2011 UFOP

O Direito E A Cidade: O Papel Do Estado Na Organização Espacial Da Região Metropolitana De Belo Horizonte, Rafael De Oliveira Alves, Letícia De Melo Honório

Rafael de Oliveira Alves

O objetivo principal deste estudo é apresentar os referenciais teóricos e a metodologia de análise sobre o zoneamento urbanístico a partir dos processos socioespaciais presentes na região metropolitana de Belo Horizonte (RMBH). Para tanto, adotamos um pressuposto geral de que há uma relação dinâmica entre a “produção do espaço” e a “produção do direito” e que a legislação municipal de regulação do solo de Belo Horizonte gera efeitos de segregação socioterritorial intra e extramunicipal. A partir desses fundamentos, foram avaliados os planos diretores e as leis de uso e ocupação do solo dos municípios de Belo Horizonte, Brumadinho, Nova Lima ...


Christian Worship, Kimberly Bowes 2011 University of Pennsylvania

Christian Worship, Kimberly Bowes

Departmental Papers (Classical Studies)

When in 313 the emperor Constantine declared his support for the Christian religion, he was taking a risk. An earlier generation of church scholars had supposed that in the three hundred years since the death of Christ, his followers had manage to expand to the point that Constantine's declaration of support was simply a recognition of the inevitable--Christian triumph by sheer force of numbers. Recent work suggests a more complex reality. Christianity was very slow to get going: by about 200, perhaps as many as 200000 Christians existed on the earth. Even by maximum estimates of expansion, Christian populations ...


Philadelphia's 13th Street Passages: A Model For Urban Main Street Development, Kevin McMahon 2011 University of Pennsylvania

Philadelphia's 13th Street Passages: A Model For Urban Main Street Development, Kevin Mcmahon

Theses (Historic Preservation)

To a large extent, this thesis will investigate how 13th Street was successfully revitalized using a strategy similar to that of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Main Street Program, a broadly applied framework for the revitalization of historic commercial centers in downtown communities nationwide. The success of the Main Street program, as outlined in its Four-Point Approach to revitalization, relies on early and strong community organization and small business partnerships. However, because there was such little concern among business owners on 13th Street, and because the City of Philadelphia was unable to take a leading role in redevelopment ...


An Evaluation Of Acrylic Resin, Ethyl Silicate, And Methyltrimethoxysilane Treatment At San Antonio Missions National Historic Park, San Antonio, Texas, Natalie Karas 2011 University of Pennsylvania

An Evaluation Of Acrylic Resin, Ethyl Silicate, And Methyltrimethoxysilane Treatment At San Antonio Missions National Historic Park, San Antonio, Texas, Natalie Karas

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This thesis provided a unique opportunity to evaluate the efficacy of a complex stone conservation treatment after 17 years of outdoor weathering. It is rare for a conservator to return to a site and assess her/his treatment and even rarer to monitor a treatment periodically over time. The conservation project under review was performed in 1993-94 and was documented step by step, including masonry characterization and condition assessment, treatment testing, treatment selection, and application. This abundance of information facilitates a comparative evaluation of the effects of the treatment on the masonry over time. This was made possible by the ...


“The Once And Future Site Of The U.S. Embassy Berlin” A Discursive Analysis Of Planning, Negotiation, And Reception, Andrew Maurer 2011 University of Colorado at Boulder

“The Once And Future Site Of The U.S. Embassy Berlin” A Discursive Analysis Of Planning, Negotiation, And Reception, Andrew Maurer

Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures Graduate Theses & Dissertations

This paper examines the discourse surrounding the planning, negotiation, and reception stages of the U.S. Embassy at Pariser Platz in Berlin, which imbued the building with a highly politicized symbolic nature. Much more than simply a building, the architecture of the U.S. Embassy made a "statement," which acquired meaning through the discursive formations of Berlin as a "global city," the guiding doctrine of Berlin as "critically reconstructed," and the United States' security presence in post-Wall Berlin. This discourse focused not only on the present form of the building, but also on the site's historical form and visions ...


Heidegger And Sartre: Phenomenological Conceptions Of The “Self” And The Ontology Of Architecture, Durukan Kuzu 2011 London School of Economics and Political Science

Heidegger And Sartre: Phenomenological Conceptions Of The “Self” And The Ontology Of Architecture, Durukan Kuzu

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

This paper aims to answer the question: Which conception of the self should we be informed by, if we want to understand the true essence of the self as well as architecture? To this end, I criticize the architectural theories that have been dominantly inspired by Heidegger’s phenomenological approach, suggesting that those who regard architecture as a morphological concept that has been defined and determined by the context in which it appears overlook the significance of the negation process, active agency and consciousness of being. Those scholars who overly focus on human relation to space also underestimate the human ...
