Kinsey Dialogue Series #1: The Origins And Challenges Of Participatory Action Research, Orlando Fals Borda Jan 1999

Kinsey Dialogue Series #1: The Origins And Challenges Of Participatory Action Research, Orlando Fals Borda

Participatory Research & Practice

Participatory research as we now know it, with its emphasis on practice in conditions of exploitation and poverty, originated in Third World countries such as India, Brazil, Mexico, Tanzania and Colombia. Participatory research emerged around 1970, when socials scientists who shared a particular concern about life conditions among the rural poor, became dissatisfied with our training. Our conceptions of Cartesian rationality, progress, and "normal" science had been challenged, and we sought alternative emancipatory modes of research and action. This included looking for conceptual elements to guide our fieldwork that would take us beyond our tentative first steps with social psychology ...

A Proposal For A Community Development Training Program For Afghan Women In Exile As Agents Of Change, Rahela Sakhi Kamyar

Master's Capstone Projects

It is illegal in today's Afghanistan if a strange male hears a woman's voice or the sound of her footsteps. The man will be provoked and it is the fault of the woman and she should be punished. This is an example of misinterpretation of Islam being enforced by the Taliban in Afghanistan since 1996.

Afghan women suffer from disparity in terms of education, employment and participation in their country's development process. Traditionally, women in Afghanistan have had an important symbolic role as the core or heart of the society. Women have been seen as the primary ...

An Exploration Of Social Change In Tropical And Sub-Tropical Rural Agrarian Societies, Cole D. Genge

Master's Capstone Projects

A qualitative research project on the dynamics of social change in rural agrarian societies in the tropics and sub-tropics was conducted during the months of October and December of 1998 and January of this year. The research topic emerged, in part, from researcher's interest on issues related to community development in the third world, environmental issues in the tropics, and the promotion of social change for the benefit of marginalized peoples.

The preliminary study of social change in the rural tropics was the result of five case studies with individuals living in the Pioneer Valley region of Western Massachusetts ...

Tractatus Pedagogico Peripateticus (The Walk Of Future Learning), Daniel James Macneil

Master's Capstone Projects

Our understanding of human learning has been greatly improved by recent research findings from the fields of cognitive science, neurobiology, organizational studies, anthropology, linguistics, and evolutionary psychology. Despite all that is known, however, the majority of formal schools in the world operate much as they did 50 years ago. The pedagogy and the structure of the educational experience still reflect industrial age assumptions that are increasingly anachronistic in the modern knowledge production economy and in the post-modern cultural arena. Given the paucity of examples, it is difficult to visualize the characteristics of a future learning society - a society that embodies ...
