Monterrey and the Local Media. The study of ideological reproduction through four life stories
Dda. Lorena Frankenberg
Revista Latina de Comunicación Social , 2008,
Abstract: This paper analyses the ideological discourse of the local print and television news media of the eighties in the city of Monterrey, Mexico according to the biographical narratives of four leading journalists. The purpose is to pay attention to the role of ideology in the media as emphasized by cultural studies in its beginnings. The main question posed was: What was the role of the media in the eighties in the reproduction of the ideology of the economic and industrial elite of Monterrey and its relationship with the value system and civic identity of the audience members? According to the journalists interviewed, members of the industrial elite had a direct and explicit influence in the policies and contents of the main local newspapers and television stations, except for a daily newspaper that lost its predominance when rejecting that influence. The paper discusses the close relationship between media, audiences and the structures of ideological reproduction of the local industrial group, and the ways in which all these elements continously interact.

Stories for Thinking  [PDF]
Robert Fisher
Analytic Teaching and Philosophical Praxis , 1998,
Abstract: Stories have long been seen as a natural stimulus for discussion, investigation and problem-solving in UK primary schools. The Stories for Thinking programme is aimed at developing the thinking, learning and language skills of primary-aged children through thinking together about stories. The central focus of the programme is on the use of narrative as a stimulus for developing higher order literacy and thinking skills. One of the key aims of education in schools is to teach literacy - the ability to read and write. These skills are seen as basic, and form along with numeracy the central thrust of the‘back to basics’ movement in English education. These are often seen as low level skills, to be taught through repetitive and low level exercises. From this view of literacy it is easy to understand the view that teachers of young children do not need extensive training. Indeed the recent short-course school-based teacher training courses for teachers of young children can be seen as a product of this view of literacy-astraining. However we can look at literacy in a broader and more productive way. Literacy can be seen as the ability to think, reason and communicate within a particular social context.

Hidden Stories, Toxic Stories, Healing Stories: The Power of Narrative in Peace and Reconciliation  [cached]
Stephan Marks
Narrative Works , 2011,
Abstract: Research on narrative is more than simply listening to (more or less) nice stories. There are stories that are hidden between the lines; these need to be noticed and retrieved. There are stories that can be toxic to be exposed to; these need to be coped with and conceived. But there may be stories that have a healing quality, too—stories that can contribute to peace and reconciliation. These three possible qualities of narratives are the focus of the following paper, which was delivered in October 2008, at the launch of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on Narrative at St. Thomas University in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. The lecture was based on his interdisciplinary research project "Geschichte und Erinnerung" [History and Memory, www.geschichte-erinnerung.de] in which interviews with Nazi followers, bystanders, and perpetrators were conducted and analysed. Marks presented one of the key findings of this research—shame—and its effect on what the interviewees recounted, as well as its relevance for National Socialism and present-day German society.

Plan Recognition in Stories and in Life  [PDF]
Eugene Charniak,Robert P. Goldman
Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: Plan recognition does not work the same way in stories and in "real life" (people tend to jump to conclusions more in stories). We present a theory of this, for the particular case of how objects in stories (or in life) influence plan recognition decisions. We provide a Bayesian network formalization of a simple first-order theory of plans, and show how a particular network parameter seems to govern the difference between "life-like" and "story-like" response. We then show why this parameter would be influenced (in the desired way) by a model of speaker (or author) topic selection which assumes that facts in stories are typically "relevant".
The Significance of Structure in Analyzing Short Stories  [cached]
Yujun Liu
Asian Social Science , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v5n8p141
Abstract: Structure is an important element in analyzing artistic work and literary works, especially in analyzing the short stories. The charming and unique set pattern of the short story structure could help readers to appreciate and create excellent short stories.
Reproduction and ferromagnetism  [PDF]
Ignacio Gallo
Quantitative Biology , 2013,
Abstract: I present a stochastic population model that combines cooperative interactions of the type often used in physics with the process of reproduction and death familiar to biology, and I refer to reasons why such interlocking may be of interest to both fields.
