Learning about Vegetarian Diets in School: Curricular Representations of Food and Nutrients in Elementary Health Education  [PDF]
Clara Hanson
Advances in Applied Sociology (AASoci) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/aasoci.2012.21010
Abstract: This paper examines the way non-meat and plant based diets are discussed in four elementary curricula. The author used an open coding technique of grounded theory to understand the way food, nutrition and vegetarianism was discussed. The curricula relied heavily upon the USDA Food Pyramid and a related concept of “balance” for nutritional information. The curricula also discussed nutrition in terms of food and food groups, rather than in terms of nutrients. Although some of the curricula included information about the benefits of vegetarian diets, the high level of use of the Food Pyramid often overwhelmed the low level of information about vegetarianism.

Afro-Brazilian religions in Portugal: bruxos, priests and pais de santo
Etnográfica , 2010,
Abstract: the afro-brazilian religions that established themselves in portugal during the last twenty years are becoming more and more popular. the temples are full with portuguese followers that, after going through the initiation processes, become important in the organization of the religious community and, with time, may themselves become priests. most of them previously believers in the catholic church, their turning towards the afro-brazilian cults most of the times does not keep them from sustaining their regular church going practices. as such, many prefer umbanda, closer to the catholic matrix, while others turn to candomblé and to african performances, which are rather new to them. drawing on field work conducted in lisbon, in temples and with followers of these cults, and on the pioneer work of ismael pordeus jr., this paper explores some of the aspects of this new ?portuguese? syncretism, the way these cults incorporating possession appeal to the portuguese, and the hermeneutical process of brazilian influences in portugal and returning to their roots again, linking the three corners of the portuguese black atlantic.
Un análisis acerca de las categorías socioprofesionalesen la negociación colectiva y sus transformaciones en las últimas décadas
Trabajo y sociedad , 2012,
Abstract: this paper analyses the structure and the criteria of definition of occupational categories in collective agreements from selected manufacturing activities along different periods, since 1975. in particular, we aim to analyse the way in which the advance of capital against labour in the last decades of the 20th century expressed in the definition of occupational categories in collective agreements. this analysis allows us to recognize processes of exclusion of categories, reduction in the number of categories, and redefinition of the same ones. even when the changes in occupational categories were neither homogeneous nor linear, those processes started during the 90's have great relevance today.
A"arma da cultura" e os "universalismos parciais"
Mafra, Clara;
Mana , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-93132011000300005
Abstract: in the present article, i begin by inquiring about the relative inability of brazilian evangelical christians to utilize "culture as a weapon". while agents of other religions - and in particular catholics and members of african-brazilian religions - have negotiated a certain subordination of the "religious" to the "cultural" as a strategy of increasing their ecognittion and social legitimacy by including themselves in the set of "cultures" which make up the nation, evangelical christians have ended to develop extenalist relationships with the cultural policies proposed by the state and by transnational secular agencies. based on ethnographic data, the present article suggests that the hesitations and ambiguities of the evangelicals with regards to these politics are related to a more basic engagement with the production of "partial universalisms". in other words, i argue that is a constituitive part of evangelical christian culture to maintain tense linkages of acceptance or rejection with those visions of the world that are conventionally accepted within this context.
Relatos compartilhados: experiências de convers?o ao pentecostalismo entre brasileiros e portugueses
Mafra, Clara;
Mana , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-93132000000100003
Abstract: two broad trends have characterized the interpretation of documents which report on pentecostal conversion. on the one hand, a "constructivist" tendency is observed, where the subject's narrative is seen as an artificial response or reflex to the forces of expectations and external pressure. on the other hand, narratives on conversion are treated as being the centre of analysis, and interpreted as the direct expression of some new disposition of the self. in this article a third interpretation is put forth, based on conversion reports from brazil and portuguese "evangelicists", in which conversion is itself treated as a narrative genre which incorporates the life experiences of common men and women who have come to "accept jesus christ", and which gain, through this event, a measure of similitude. in this way one guarantees the commensurability of life his stories without imposing a single meaning upon them.
