Developing Standards for Language Teacher Education Programs in Indonesia: Professionalizing or Losing in Complexity?
Luciana Luciana
TEFLIN Journal , 2004,
Abstract: Setting standards for language teacher education programs, materials, and evaluation sparks some hope in attempts to improve the quality of the programs. Yet, this very fact augmented by my examination of ten language teacher education programs in Java, Bali, and Lampung (FKIP and PGRI) triggers a critical look at the idea of standard development. In particular, I would like to explore whether it can lead to a better professionalism or we are just lost in the complexity of the standardization itself. This paper consists of four sections. Departing from an overview of language teacher education programs in Indonesia and the theoretical foundations, some major problems in this area are identified. Following this, the discussion is focused on the idea of standard development for language teacher education programs in Indonesia. Eventually, some suggestions are put forth to highlight the need for establishing coherent curriculum framework bridging the two realms of language teacher education and school milieu as well as providing learners with knowledge base that enables them to cope with complex demands of school settings and more essentially, to act as an agent in the social change process.

Monitoring the Short-Term Response to Salt Exposure of Two Genetically Distinct Phragmites australis Clones with Different Salinity Tolerance Levels  [PDF]
Luciana Achenbach, Hans Brix
American Journal of Plant Sciences (AJPS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ajps.2014.58122

Aims: Two genetically distinct clones of Phragmites australis were used to investigate the immediate response induced by osmotic stress. The study aimed at elucidating if the response time, the inhibition rate and the recovery from salinity stress vary between these two genotypes. The experimental work was conducted at the laboratory of the Institute of Bioscience, Aarhus University, Denmark. Methods: The light-saturated photosynthetic rate (Pmax), stomata conductance (gs) and transpiration rate (E) were measured over different periods of salt exposure (15, 70 and 240 minutes) and at different salt concentrations (20 and 40 parts per thousand salinity). Important findings: The osmotic stress induced stomata closure and reduction of Pmax and E for both clones. The clone-specific responses as measured through physiological parameters were negatively

Multidisciplinary Approach to a Recovery Plan of Historical Buildings
Luciana Orlando
International Journal of Geophysics , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/258043
Abstract: The paper emphasizes the advantages of employing multiple data techniques—geology, GPS, surveys of cracking, boreholes, seismic refraction and electrical resistivity tomography—to image the shallow stratigraphy and hypothesize the cause of instability of an urban area. The study is focused on the joint interpretation of the crack pattern, topographic monitoring and the features of the underground, to define the area affected by instability and the direction of ground motion with the objective to advance a hypothesis on the cause of the instability of the area and to depict the main features. Borehole stratigraphies for a univocal interpretation of the lithology of electrical and seismic data and electrical resistivity tomography to constrain the interpretation of the lateral velocity variations and thickness of seismic bedrock were used. The geophysical surveys reveals to be complementary in the depicting of underground features. The study is approached at small and medium scale.
La migración en la unidad doméstica: un estudio de caso en dos municipios de la frontera argentino-boliviana (Los Toldos, Salta y Padcaya, Tarija)
Mundo agrario , 2008,
Abstract: this paper studies regional and international migration in a context of peasant economies, in the border between actual municipalities of los toldos (salta, argentina) and padcaya (tarija, bolivia). it was not until 1938 that los toldos valley was officially transferred from bolivia to the argentine province of salta. from that date on, the state influences have introduced divergences between both sectors, mostly due to the differential politics that both nations have been adopting. the ethnographic study and, particularly, the comparative analysis of 110 semi-structured surveys, which allow studying the household's members' dynamics, permits us conclude that the different types of migration are structured owing to reproductive strategies of the household. permanent migration is thought as a compensatory mechanism for the redistribution of productive resources between sons, as the land subdivision is a problem nowadays, while temporary migrations are thought as another economic activity among the already conventional productive ones in the region.
A representa??o audiovisual das mulheres migradas
Pontes, Luciana;
Cadernos Pagu , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-83332012000200010
Abstract: in this paper i analyze the representations of the migrant women at the audiovisual founds in some of the organizations that work with gender and immigration in barcelona. at the audiovisuals i have found a recurring association of the migrant women with poverty, criminality, ignorance, passivity, undocumentation, gender violence, compulsory and numerous motherhood, prostitution, etc. thus, i tried to understand the ways in which these representations are shaped, studying the narrative, stylistic, visual and verbal elements through which these images and discourses of the migrant women are articulated.
Mulheres brasileiras na mídia portuguesa
Pontes, Luciana;
Cadernos Pagu , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-83332004000200008
Abstract: this article deals with the representations of brazilian women in portuguese media, exploring gender issues in interaction with nationality/ethnicity. in these representations there are essencialization and exoticization processes of brazilian national identity and sexualization of these women. i relate these processes with contemporary increase of brazilian immigration to portugal.
Análisis arqueofaunísticos de los sitios Loma Ruiz 1 y El Tigre (Partidos de Villarino y Patagones, provincia de Buenos Aires): Aportes para el conocimiento de la subsistencia en el valle inferior del río Colorado durante el Holoceno tardío
Intersecciones en antropolog?-a , 2007,
Abstract: in this paper, the results obtained from an analysis carried out on the faunal assemblages of the loma ruiz 1 and el tigre sites (villarino and patagones districts, buenos aires province) are presented. the general objective is to contribute to insights into the subsistence of hunter-gatherer groups who inhabited the lower basin of the colorado river during the late holocene. a preliminary subsistence pattern is presented on the basis of the archaeofaunal analysis, faunal evidence originating from other archaeological sites in the area, and the information provided by the analysis of stable isotopes and grinding materials. this pattern suggests a subsistence strategy based mainly on the exploitation of guanaco, complemented by the consumption of deer, ?andú, and vegetal resources. such a pattern is characteristic of the initial late holocene (ca. 3000-1000 years bp). however, it is proposed that towards the final late holoceno (ca. 1000-300 years bp) a broader spectrum of exploited faunal species would have existed, with the incorporation of species of smaller size (i.e., peludo, piche), and the contribution of fluvial (percas) and possibly marine and vegetables resources.
Máquinas e argumentos: das tecnologias de suporte da vida à defini??o de morte cerebral
Kind, Luciana;
História, Ciências, Saúde-Manguinhos , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-59702009000100002
Abstract: the article analyzes academic production about the debate surrounding the definition of brain death, based on bibliographic and documental research of international medical periodicals in the 1960s. the development and adoption of life support technologies during the twentieth century sparked a heated debate that sought to legitimize new procedures like organ transplants. as its practices changed, medical science set about inventing new knowledge about these practices. discussions as to the definition of brain death turned it into a 'black box', dismantled by anthropological studies into the topic starting in 1980s. the present article explores the deconstruction of brain death as a black box.
Performance e experiência nas narrativas orais da fronteira entre Argentina, Brasil e Uruguai
Hartmann, Luciana;
Horizontes Antropológicos , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-71832005000200007
Abstract: in the frontier among argentina, brazil and uruguay oral narratives transpose political limits. on circulating in this region, narratives reveal identities, traditions and even feelings. in these countries the practice of storytelling is a central aspect of a "culture of frontier", it is fundamental for transmitting values and knowledge. in this paper i present an specific aspect of this culture: the story-tellers performances and its importance on the organization and transmission of the experience of living in the frontier. firstly, it is done a theoretical approach about the relationship among experience, performance and narrative definitions. then, presenting two narratives - one a comic story, and the other a personal life narrative - i explain how concepts of "performance as an exhibition" and "performance as skill" can be useful to understand the different forms storytellers act in narrative events.
