Repensando a indentidade no contexto das migra??es
Corsini, Leonora;
Psicologia & Sociedade , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-71822006000300004
Abstract: on account that there is an innovative aspect underlying contemporary studies on migrations which is the possibility of conceiving categories such as nation, ethnicities, identity and citizenship from the perspective of subjectivity, some considerations regarding the concept of identity in its interconnections with the production of subjectivity will be undertaken in this paper. the production of subjectivity is understood as the process through which individuals singularize themselves and produce new relational modalities - affective and cognitive - that materialize in activities of the new working class. this new class of workers has been denominated by antonio negri and michael hardt as "multitude" - a new ontology of globalization that clearly expresses itself in the desire of rendering the differences of space into something common. our perspective is that identity must be studied in the context of relations with the other, from the production of difference, not mistaking "difference between" - which would be the opposite of "identity" - with the process of producing difference.

Why the Philippines Did Not Become a Newly Industrializing Country
Leonora Angeles
Kasarinlan : Philippine Journal of Third World Studies , 1992,
Abstract: The Philippines is often a puzzle to many international observers. Compared to its Asian neighbors South Korea and Taiwan which have both attained the enviable NIC (newly industrializing country) status, the Philippines has lagged behind both countries in terms of several economic development indicators: GNP growth, per capita income, life expectancy, calorie intake requirements, etc. (See Table 1, Appendix). Only a few decades ago, the Philippines was considered as the "jewel" among Southeast Asian nations and was even referred to in some literature as an NIC like South Korea and Brazil (Harris 1983). The Philippines appeared set to join the ranks of the NICs in the early 1970s, with large and growing sectors of manufacturing and labor-intensive goods, especially when other Asian NICs were vacating the field of light labor-intensive manufactures and moving into skilled and capital-intensive products (Hill and Jayasuriya 1985, 135). But now, all other Southeast Asian nations, including Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia, have surpassed the Philippines (Haggard in Nelson 1990, 215).
Are Essay Grades Fair?
Archer, Leonora
College Forum , 1980,
Abstract: The Bahamian national examination, the BJC, given at the end of junior high school is used by the majority of educators as a basis for selection of students into higher level courses. Most BJC examinations include essay-type questions, however it has been noted that English Language examinations allocate more than 50% of the total marks to questions requiring essay-type answers. This research was undertaken to determine whether the essay test provides a reliable measure of the free writing ability of junior high students. It sought to answer the following questions: i) do marks given for an essay test vary when the scripts are graded by different examiners? ii) would marks given for an essay test vary when different topics were given to the same students? and iii) would marks given for an essay vary when different marking schemes were used?
Toxocara y Toxocariosis
Archelli,Susana; Kozubsky,Leonora;
Acta bioqu?-mica cl?-nica latinoamericana , 2008,
Abstract: toxocara is a genus of intestinal dog and cat parasites. they can accidentally infect humans producing severe disease. the infection in animals is contracted by ingestion of infective eggs or paratenic hosts. soil is very important in the dissemination of this parasitic zoonosis. humans acquire the infection orally, not existing person to person transmission. toxocariosis, a systemic larval parasitosis, may present as an asymptomatic form or with respiratory compromise, eosinophilia, fever, hepatomegaly, esplenomegaly, hypergammaglobulinemia, adenopathies, and disorders of central nervous system, myocardium, eyes, skin and even as a fatal disease. clinically, it may present as visceral larva migrans syndrome, ocular larva migrans syndrome, neurologic toxocariosis and masked toxocariosis. it is very common in children. the diagnosis is based on the detection of antibodies by means of serologic tests, evaluated along with clinical and epidemiological aspects. the suspected diagnosis can be confirmed by identification of larvae in biopsy specimens. nowadays, molecular techniques enable the detection of different stages and fractions of parasite dna.
La fotografía como creadora de la imagen de un destino turístico. Buenos Aires a través de sus tarjetas postales
Santillán, Vilma Leonora
PASOS : Revista de Turismo y Patrimonio Cultural , 2010,
Abstract: This paper is focused on qualitative study where a sample of Bs. As. postcards sold in 2007 is analyzed. The article analyzes how the photography creates and transmits images and tourist symbols (sites, monuments, masterpieces), and its important role in the construction and interpretation of tourist destination image in special historic, social and cultural context. Likewise, the articulations between photographic images and texts joined are described since both construct the destination imagery

Toxocara y Toxocariosis Toxocara and toxocariosis
Susana Archelli,Leonora Kozubsky
Acta bioqu?-mica cl?-nica latinoamericana , 2008,
Abstract: Toxocara es un género que comprende parásitos intestinales de perros y gatos capaces de infectar accidentalmente al hombre pudiendo producir una severa enfermedad. En los animales la infección ocurre al ingerir huevos infectivos o accidentalmente hospedadores de transporte o paraténicos. El suelo juega un rol muy importante en la diseminación de esta zoonosis parasitaria. En el hombre la infección es siempre oral no transmitiéndose de persona a persona. La toxocariosis es una parasitosis larval sistémica, que se presenta en forma asintomática o con diversas manifestaciones, como compromiso respiratorio, eosinofilia, fiebre, hepatomegalia, esplenomegalia, hipergammaglobulinemia, adenopatías, afectación del sistema nervioso central, miocardio y piel, pudiendo ser incluso mortal. Clínicamente puede presentarse como síndrome de larva migrans visceral, síndrome de larva migrans ocular, toxocariosis neurológica y toxocariosis encubierta, siendo muy común principalmente en ni os. El diagnóstico de la toxocariosis implica la detección de anticuerpos mediante pruebas serológicas, evaluadas en el contexto clínicoepidemiológico del paciente. El diagnóstico puede confirmarse mediante la identificación de larvas en el material de biopsia de los órganos comprometidos. Actualmente existen técnicas moleculares que permiten detectar diferentes estadíos o fracciones de ADN parasitario. Toxocara is a genus of intestinal dog and cat parasites.

The PKP and MAKIBAKA Revisited: Women's Liberation in Revolutionary Theory and Practice
Leonora C. Angeles
Kasarinlan : Philippine Journal of Third World Studies , 1988,
Abstract: This paper is an attempt to analyze the place of women's liberation in revolutionary theory and practice in the history of the Philippine Left. It will focus primarily on the experience of the old Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP) or Communist Party of the Philippines in the 1930s up to the 1960s and the national democratic Malayang Kilusan ng bagong Kababaihan (Makibaka) or Free Association of New Women in the early 70s whose name was adopted by the women's arm of the underground national Democratic Front (NDF) today.
The Filipino Male as “Macho-Machunurin”: Bringing Men and Masculinities in Gender and Development Studies
Leonora C. Angeles
Kasarinlan : Philippine Journal of Third World Studies , 2001,
Abstract: As Filipino feminist scholars move beyond the stage of "women as victim, men as problem" discourse in gender studies, there is a need to discuss the place of men in gender and development studies. Academics and advocates note the pitfalls of "women-focused" and "women-only" development interventions, citing women-focused programs that succeed mostly in shifting the burden of responsibility for contraception, parenting and housework on women. There is a need to take into account the experiences of different varieties of men from marginal groups based on class, ethnicity, age, generation and position in the life cycle as gender roles react to socio-economic changes: As it is, men and masculinity have not been adequately theorized. Expressions of Filipino masculinities within the Filipino family, market place, work environment, and marital relations are complex.1he inclusion of menand masculinities in gender studies has so far been confined to the unmasking of the "problematic male." By uncovering the multiple layers and forms of masculinities, feminist scholars and advocates could come up with more strategic developmentplans and programs and more successfully reorder gender relations.
