Abstract

"Scientists deserve public recognition. The ways that they are depicted, however, are severely limited in physical and personal traits, helping to establish and enhance stereotypes under the general title of ‘scientist’. These stereotypes range from the arrogant researcher who wants to rule the world, to the lab coat wearing ‘nerdy’ genius, but all generally fall to an extreme view of an existing perception of what a scientist should look and be like. For example, the popular image of ‘a scientist’ overlooks the presence of women almost entirely unless attributed to specific subjects and/or with narrow character depictions. The implications can be far-reaching. Young people, being heavily swayed by what they see and hear in the media, may avoid scientific careers because of these limited or unflattering portrayals of the scientific community, regardless of whether they reflect real life. Based on findings from the Light’13 project, this book examines such stereotypes and questions whether it is possible to adjust people’s perception of scientists and to increase interest in science and scientific careers through a series of specific actions and events."

Abstract

Pinkizzazione è la recente tendenza a colorare di rosa tutto ciò che appartiene al territorio femminile: rosa i vestiti e i giocattoli delle bambine, rosa gli oggetti e gli accessori delle donne; ma rosa è anche il colore scelto dalle donne in marcia nello sciopero globale dell’8 marzo 2017. Il rosa è diventato un significante che serve a delimitare i confini di genere solo nel secolo scorso. Quando e perché è successo? Quando e perché è divenuto così di moda? La divisione dei colori - rosa per le femmine e blu per i maschi - è uno dei tanti dispositivi per il mantenimento dell’ordine di genere, un ordine rigorosamente binario che non prevede sconfinamenti e che ingabbia non solo il femminile, ma anche, o forse soprattutto, il maschile. Ancora oggi, i maschi devono mostrarsi diversi dalle femmine, ma si iniziano a intravvedere significativi segnali di cambiamento, che generano forme di resistenza. Perché le sfide all’ordine di genere fanno paura? Attraverso una ricerca sugli stereotipi di genere nelle scuole di infanzia genovesi, si è provato a rispondere a queste e altre domande, entrando nelle scuole, parlando con le insegnanti, facendo osservazione nelle classi e provando a catturare il punto di vista creativo di bambine e bambini.

Abstract

There is no shortage of articles and books exploring women’s underrepresentation in science. Everyone is interested--academics, politicians, parents, high school girls (and boys), women in search of college majors, administrators working to accommodate women’s educational interests; the list goes on. But one thing often missing is an evidence-based examination of the problem, uninfluenced by personal opinions, accounts of “lived experiences,” anecdotes, and the always-encroaching inputs of popular culture. This is why this special issue of Frontiers in Psychology can make a difference. In it, a diverse group of authors and researchers with even more diverse viewpoints find themselves united by their empirical, objective approaches to understanding women’s underrepresentation in science today. The questions considered within this special issue span academic disciplines, methods, levels of analysis, and nature of analysis; what these article share is their scholarly, evidence-based approach to understanding a key issue of our time.

Abstract

Depuis 1991, de nombreux ressortissants des pays anciennement communistes affluent sur les marchés d’İstanbul, dans ses échoppes et aux abords des quartiers commerçants de Laleli, Beyazıt, Osmanbey, Merter et Karaköy. Ce « commerce à la valise » a pris d’importantes proportions depuis 1992. Il témoigne, dans le cas stambouliote comme pour d’autres métropoles, de nouvelles formes de mobilités interna­tionales, qui jouent des différentiels de prix et de juridiction d’un État à l’autre. Le cas d...

Abstract

Quoique les deux-tiers de la population d’İstanbul soient nés hors du département, l’analyse des dynamiques migratoires à İstan­bul, entendues dans toutes leurs dimensions, même les plus contraires au sens et au discours communs, reste largement à faire. S’il existe quelques études (citées ci-dessous), elles sont rares, biaisées et souvent lacunaires, à l’excep­tion des remarquables travaux de Sema Erder (1996), Neşe Özgen (1999) et de Harald Schüler (1999, notamment en ce qui concerne les St...

Abstract

From Pavlov's dog expecting food when hearing a bell to stereotypes as expectations about other people’s behaviour, from Bandura’s self-efficacy as expectation for success and failure of one’s own behaviour to the "predictive brain" concept in current perception theories: expectations have been a central construct in different areas of psychological research. In each of these areas, specific concepts, theoretical approaches, and empirical methods have been developed to explain when and why expectations persist and when they do not. Many theories assume that expectations are likely to change in the face of disconfirming evidence. However, sometimes expectations persist even though they are empirically violated, suggesting that they can be “sticky” under certain circumstances. But what are these circumstances? And what are the psychological mechanisms that can explain why and when expectations persist or change after being confronted with expectation-violating evidence?Each contribution of the current book offers insights into individuals’ reactions to violations of expectations. They show that many pieces of the puzzle have been collected in the many sub-displiclines of psychology and that putting them together in an integrative fashion stays a fascinating enterprise.

Abstract

Lo studio Incrocio di culture analizza le differenze culturali comuni e reciproche − un approccio all’inter- culturalità − di tedeschi, italiani e francesi in materia di patrimonio architettonico, storico, letterario, cinemato- grafico, teatrale e lirico e sui riferimenti o le figure della cultura popolare. L’inchiesta è stata condotta su 4.500 persone appartenenti alle tre popolazioni: si tratta di un’iniziativa inedita nel proprio ambito e per portata, che mira a sondare il fondamento comune delle culture in Europa, di una cultura europea o dell’identità culturale europea mediante la cultura. I risultati confermano la correlazione delle conoscenze e del livello di istruzione, mettono in evidenza la pregnanza degli stereotipi sui popoli e l’assenza di una vera e propria cultura comune. L’esistenza di alcuni riferimenti transnazionali fortemente condivisi mostra tuttavia che l’interculturalità, che suppone la conoscenza degli altri popoli, non è irraggiungibile. Lo studio invita pertanto a ripensare gli obiet- tivi, i metodi e gli strumenti dell’interculturalità europea.

Abstract

This volume provides a compendium of the history of and discourse about antisemitism - both as a unique cultural and religious category. Antisemitic stereotypes function as religious symbols that express and transmit a belief system of Jew-hatred, which are stored in the cultural and religious memories of the Western and Muslim worlds, migrating freely between Christian, Muslim and other religious symbolic systems.

Abstract

Looking at and listening to picture and story books is a ubiquitous activity, frequently enjoyed by many young children and their parents. Well before children can read for themselves they are able to learn from books. Looking at and listening to books increases children’s general knowledge, understanding about the world and promotes language acquisition. This collection of papers demonstrates the breadth of information pre-reading children learn from books and increases our understanding of the social and cognitive mechanisms that support this learning. Our hope is that this Research Topic/eBook will be useful for researchers as well as educational practitioners and parents who are interested in optimizing children’s learning.

Abstract

This book collected studies focused on the management of tourist destinations. Destinations are complex and adaptive systems, where the different elements that make them up have to be oriented towards achieving a common objective that improves the competitiveness of the destination. Five main lines of research on tourist destinations can be established: 1) the management, planning, and marketing of destinations, with special attention to the tourism supply chain, communication, and integral management; 2) the sustainability of resources and capabilities; 3) the renewal of destinations in order to update their offer and main resources to maintain competitiveness; 4) online reputation and communication through social media in order to create and enhance a strong brand image and customer loyalty; and 5) the application of new technologies in order to develop smart destinations. The book is made up of five research studies that focus on analyzing the transition towards a more circular tourist activity in hotels, image as a competitive factor of destinations, the value of cultural creativity, the coherence of online reputation, and the relationship between hotel prices and online reputation in different tourist destinations.
