Fear Of Arabness, henriette kalev 2009 ben gurion university

Fear Of Arabness, Henriette Kalev

henriette dahan kalev

In this paper I discuss the fear of Arabness of the Jews of European and American origin, often called in Hebrew Ashkenazim, and its impact on the Jews of Arab and origin and Moslem countries who live in Israel and often called Mizrahim. I shall explore the Mizrahim's reaction to fear of Arabness directed towards them and the Moslem Arabs who remained in Israel after the establishment of the state. I shall examine the fear of Arabness as it was discussed in post Zionist and postcolonial critic of Arab-Jewishness.

In this article the strategies of gender bargaining with the spiritual and political patriarchy will be explored through the case study of the women in Shas Movement. Shas is a Jewish ultra orthodox Sephardic patriarchal community in Israel. Shas's community life, beliefs and culture are rooted in the Jewish religion.

Diversity And Its Discontents: Ambivalence In Neighborhood Policy And Racial Attitudes In The Obama Era, Meghan Burke 2009 Illinois Wesleyan University

Diversity And Its Discontents: Ambivalence In Neighborhood Policy And Racial Attitudes In The Obama Era, Meghan Burke

Meghan A. Burke

This article examines the ways that members of three adjoining stably racially diverse urban communities conceptualize and engage diversity, and the ways in which their discourse and actions are cohesive with federal policies. Making use of interviews with 41 active residents in these communities, I argue that even in liberal, pro-Obama, racially diverse communities, a considerable amount of ambivalence exists in both thought and action connected to diversity, an ambivalence which is cohesive with Obama’s own federal policies that impact neighborhoods like these. The community members define diversity broadly beyond race, are ambivalent about its presence in their community ...

College Men’S Experiences As Men: Findings And Implications From Two Grounded Theory Studies, Frank Harris III, Keith Edwards 2009 San Diego State University

College Men’S Experiences As Men: Findings And Implications From Two Grounded Theory Studies, Frank Harris Iii, Keith Edwards

Frank Harris III

Problematic behavioral issues involving men have been well documented in the published discourse on college men and masculinities. Yet, empirical explanations as to why these issues persist and what educators can do to address them are largely absent from this discourse. Shared findings that emerged from two grounded theory studies of college men’s gender identity development are presented in this article. Based on these findings, recommendations for supporting college men’s gender identity development are offered.


Gender, Resources, And Wife Abuse In Hong Kong, Adam Ka-Lok Cheung, Susanne Yuk-Ping Choi 2009 National University of singapore

Gender, Resources, And Wife Abuse In Hong Kong, Adam Ka-Lok Cheung, Susanne Yuk-Ping Choi

Adam Ka-Lok Cheung

Wife abuse is the most common form of violence against women. Using original couple data collected from 871 families in a New Town in Hong Kong, this study examines the interplay between gender role attitudes of husband and resources disparities between husband and wife on wife abuse. Our findings show that compared with women from families where men were the sole providers, women from dual earner families who earned more than their husbands had a greater risk of violence, while women who earned less than their husbands had a lower risk of violence. The risk of violence against women who ...


Most Claims Settle: Implications For Alternative Dispute Resolution From A Profile Of Medical Malpractice Claims In Florida, Mirya Holman, Neil Vidmar 2009 Florida Atlantic University

Most Claims Settle: Implications For Alternative Dispute Resolution From A Profile Of Medical Malpractice Claims In Florida, Mirya Holman, Neil Vidmar

Mirya R Holman

The public image of medical malpractice cases is one of a courtroom, with an injured plaintiff, lawyers, and a judge. However, the reality of malpractice claims is very different. Approaching the study of alternative dispute resolution methods for medical malpractice claims with an eye towards identifying those contexts by which the claims are resolved, this article focuses on the institutional and informal processes of resolving disputes. These processes include both statutory procedural requirements and informal settlements, many of which occur prior to the filing of a lawsuit. A profile of medical malpractice claims in Florida from 1990 through 2008, indicates ...

More Than Visiting Hours: Maintaining Ties Between Incarcerated Mothers And Their Children, Venezia Michalsen, Jeanne Flavin, Tanya Krupat 2009 Montclair State University

More Than Visiting Hours: Maintaining Ties Between Incarcerated Mothers And Their Children, Venezia Michalsen, Jeanne Flavin, Tanya Krupat

Jeanne M Flavin

The majority of people in America’s prisons are the parents of minor children. Incarcerated moth- ers, in particular, were likely to have been a part of their children’s lives before their imprison- ment, and most will soon be returning to the community and to their children. Research has shown that it is in the best interests of the mothers and the children to maintain a relationship across the prison bars. In this article, we use the example of New York State to show how institu- tional policies and structures can impede or encourage efforts to maintain ties between ...
