Gender Differences In Distress: The Mediating Influence Of Life Stressors And Psychological Resources, Abu Sadat Nurullah

Abu Sadat Nurullah

Using the data from Canadian National Population Health Survey (NPHS), Cycle 1, this research explore gender differences in distress and the mediating influence of life stressors (i.e., chronic stress, work stress, negative life events, and childhood and adulthood trauma), and psychological resources (self-esteem, mastery, and sense of coherence). The findings from t-test analyses indicated that females reported more psychological distress, chronic stress, work stress, negative life events, and childhood and adulthood trauma, compared to males. However, in terms of psychological resources, male participants reported having more self-esteem, mastery, and sense of coherence. Results from regression analyses showed that life ...

Scope And Conceptual Issues In Testing The Race-Crime Invariance Thesis: Black, White, And Hispanic Comparisons, Darrell Steffensmeier, Jeffery Ulmer, Ben Feldmeyer, Casey Harris 2009 Pennsylvania State University

Scope And Conceptual Issues In Testing The Race-Crime Invariance Thesis: Black, White, And Hispanic Comparisons, Darrell Steffensmeier, Jeffery Ulmer, Ben Feldmeyer, Casey Harris

Ben Feldmeyer

Our goal in this article is to contribute conceptually and empirically to assessments of the racial invariance hypothesis, which posits that structural disadvantage predicts violent crime in the same way for all racial and ethnic groups. Conceptually, we elucidate the scope of the racial invariance hypothesis and clarify the criteria used for evaluating it. Empirically, we use 1999–2001 averaged arrest data from California and New York to extend analyses of the invariance hypothesis within the context of the scope and definitional issues raised in our conceptual framing—most notably by including Hispanic comparisons with Blacks and Whites, by examining ...


The Spectre Of Class: Educating And Advising For Self-Efficacy, Mikaila Arthur 2009 Rhode Island College

The Spectre Of Class: Educating And Advising For Self-Efficacy, Mikaila Arthur

Mikaila Mariel Lemonik Arthur

In her essay “The Spectre of Class: Educating and Advising for Self-Efficacy” Mikaila Mariel Lemonik Arthur discusses the importance of building student self-efficacy. However, as Arthur points out, creating an environment where students believe in their capabilities to learn and perform at a particular level is deeply influenced by one’s class background. As Arthur states, “These students have grown up in a culture that values individualism and places responsibility for success and blame for failure squarely on the shoulders of each person.” Arthur speaks more generally about creating self-efficacy and offers insight in how to maneuver around and transcend ...


Researching Life Itself: Human Centred Passionate Appreciation, Gloria Gordon 2009 London South Bank University

Researching Life Itself: Human Centred Passionate Appreciation, Gloria Gordon

Gloria Gordon PhD

My PhD studies followed on directly from the completion of my MBA research project in which I explored the experience of being black in organisational/institutional life, with the goal of achieving transformational outcomes. I doubt I would have a PhD today had I not adopted the practitioner/researcher approach, with the sole aim of exploring the lived contradictions of being 'black' in British society. At the time I had little understanding of the link between personal troubles and public issues, as noted by C Wright Mills. Instead, I saw myself as the problem and continually thought of ways of ...


The Use Of Sms [Text Messaging] And Language Transformation In Bangladesh, Abu Sadat Nurullah 2009 University of Alberta

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

Abu Sadat Nurullah

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

Evaluating The Influence Of Anthropogenic Inputs To Bottom-Up Regulation Of The Development, Survival And Emergence Rates Of Mosquito Larvae, David Markman 2009 University of Maryland - College Park

Evaluating The Influence Of Anthropogenic Inputs To Bottom-Up Regulation Of The Development, Survival And Emergence Rates Of Mosquito Larvae, David Markman

David W Markman

In aquatic and semi-aquatic ecosystems, bottom-up effects associated with resource abundance and quality play an important role in the regulation of the development, survival and emergence rates of mosquito larvae. Studying these bottom-up effects with regard to the additive impact that anthropogenic drivers may have in both urban and rural areas may be important to explain why human exposure to mosquito-borne disease is higher in urban versus rural landscapes. This study used observational methods to evaluate mosquito resident species composition across a rural to urban gradient in the Hudson Valley in New York and used experiments to test the role ...


‘Miss, Are You Bisexual?’ The (Re)Production Of Heteronormativity Within Schools And The Negotiation Of Lesbian, Gay And Bisexual Teachers’ Private And Professional Worlds, Emily M. Gray Dr 2009 RMIT University

‘Miss, Are You Bisexual?’ The (Re)Production Of Heteronormativity Within Schools And The Negotiation Of Lesbian, Gay And Bisexual Teachers’ Private And Professional Worlds, Emily M. Gray Dr

Dr Emily M Gray

This research offers an analysis of the experiences of twenty people who identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual (LGB) and who are teachers within their professional lives. It aims to illustrate the ways in which the continuing (re)production of heteronormative discursive practices impacts upon their lives both within the private and the professional realm. The research deploys a two-tier methodological framework in order to gain insights into the lives of LGBT teachers, an often invisible social group. The research is underpinned by a theoretical framework which draws upon poststructuralist feminist/queer theories but which also is data, rather than ...

A Name Of One's Own: Gender And Symbolic Legal Personhood In The European Court Of Human Rights, Yofi Tirosh 2009 Tel Aviv University

A Name Of One's Own: Gender And Symbolic Legal Personhood In The European Court Of Human Rights, Yofi Tirosh

Yofi Tirosh

Legal regulation of surnames provides a fascinating venue for examining how women negotiate their interests of autonomy and of stable personhood vis a vis a patriarchal naming structure. This is a study of 25 years of adjudication of surnames and personal status at the European Court of Human Rights. It explores the intricate ways in which legal norms governing surnames (and their judicial interpretation) sustain, shape, and reify social institutions such as gender, family, and citizenship.

As a pan European court, the adjudication of the ECHR operates within the framework of human rights. The universal characteristics of human rights principles ...


Person-Organization Incongruence As A Predictor Of Right-Wing Authoritarianism, Social Dominance Orientation, And Heterosexism, Kristie L. Seelman, N. E. Walls 2009 Georgia State University

Person-Organization Incongruence As A Predictor Of Right-Wing Authoritarianism, Social Dominance Orientation, And Heterosexism, Kristie L. Seelman, N. E. Walls

Kristie L Seelman

Using a sample of 124 incoming social work graduate students, we examined whether levels of perceived incongruence with social work values and the perceived culture of a graduate social work program significantly correlate with social psychological constructs. The social psychological constructs are associated with maintenance and support for social stratification in general and with prejudicial attitudes based on sexual orientation more specifically. Results suggest that higher levels of cultural incongruence are associated with significantly higher levels of right-wing authoritarianism, social dominance orientation, hostile heterosexism, aversive heterosexism, and paternalistic heterosexism. Nonsignificant results emerged for amnestic heterosexism and positive stereotypic heterosexism. Implications ...

[...] for one-third of the women, rape and/or incest were their first sexual experience, a fact that points to the role that dominance plays in the patriarchal gender regimes in which the women lived.


Gay And Lesbian Elders: History, Law, And Identity Politics In The United States, Nancy J. Knauer 2009 Temple University School of Law

Gay And Lesbian Elders: History, Law, And Identity Politics In The United States, Nancy J. Knauer

Nancy J. Knauer

The approximately two million gay and lesbian elders in the United States are an underserved and understudied population. At a time when gay men and lesbians enjoy an unprecedented degree of social acceptance and legal protection, many elders face the daily challenges of aging isolated from family, detached from the larger gay and lesbian community, and ignored by mainstream aging initiatives. Drawing on materials from law, history, and social theory, this book integrates practical proposals for reform with larger issues of sexuality and identity. Beginning with a summary of existing demographic data and offering a historical overview of pre-Stonewall views ...
