Privileged Mobility in an Age of Globality
Sheila Croucher
Societies , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/soc2010001
Abstract: By 2050, the world’s population of international migrants is estimated to top 400 million. A small but growing number of those migrants are leaving well-developed, affluent countries best known for receiving immigrants to settle in less well-developed countries better known for sending migrants. These migrants of relative privilege, many of them retirees, are motivated primarily by a desire to enhance their quality of life. Although this migratory flow receives much less attention than more familiar, and reverse, movements of laborers or refugees, its implications for the destination sites, sites of origin, and study of international migration generally are significant. This article will examine the contemporary border crossing of privileged migrants, the economic, political and cultural stakes for the countries and individuals involved, and the implications of incorporating privileged mobility into the study of global migration and transnationalism.

Ir ao cinema em S?o Paulo nos anos 20
Schvarzman, Sheila;
Revista Brasileira de História , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-01882005000100008
Abstract: in the 20's, octavio gabus mendes published film critics in cinearte, a magazine on movies. his texts present an extensive coverage of the movie scene in s?o paulo, as well as of his film-making ideas and his projects for brazilian cinema. they show the relationship between the development of the brazilian movie industry and the images they might construct about the country, and also the central role of movie theaters in the constitution of cinematographic activity in brazil. as they look for rich theaters in rich places, movies might represent social exclusion rather than inclusion. in this process,we can see even in the 20's a dicothomy between the constitution of cinema as a popular activity and its elitist aspirations as shown by images, spaces and frequency.
Hinter der eigentlichen Geschichte: Narrationsforschung und Autoethnografie in der interkulturellen Hochschulforschung Beyond the Story Itself: Narrative Inquiry and Autoethnography in Intercultural Research in Higher Education Mas allá de la historia misma: Investigación narrativa y autoetnografía en la investigación intercultural en la ense anza superior

Abstract: Die Unterscheidung von Forschung über die Bildung und Forschung in der Bildung (STENHOUSE 1981) hat viel zur Entwicklung einer angewandten Praxisforschung in Bildungskontexten beigetragen, wenngleich es immer noch wenige Lehrende an Hochschulen gibt, die ihre eigene Praxis aktiv erforschen. Noch seltener sind hier Praktikerinnen und Praktiker, die pers nliche und professionelle Wechselwirkungen kultureller Vielfalt im Hochschulalltag kritisch reflektieren (BRUNNER 2006), wenngleich die "internationalen Studierenden" den wechselseitigen Dialog zwischen dem lokalen Hochschulpersonal und den Studierenden unter Anerkennung der verschiedenen Realit ten und Wissensformen seit Langem einfordern (KOEHNE 2006). In diesem Beitrag erl utere ich, wie das Paradigma der Narrationsforschung mich im Rahmen meiner eigenen Promotionsforschung mit post-graduierten Studierenden aus vielen Kulturen im britischen Hochschulsystem bei der Erkundung unterschiedlicher Realit ten und Wissensdeutungen über Lernen und Lehren angeleitet und zugleich herausgefordert hat. Ich werde aufzeigen, dass Praxisforschung ein iterativer Prozess ist, in dem Forschung und Praxis unaufl slich miteinander verbunden sind. Durch die autoethnografische Exploration meiner eigenen Praxis bemühe ich mich, meine "subject positions, social locations, interpretations, and personal experiences" fortlaufend durch das "refracted medium of narrators' voices" (CHASE 2005, S.666) zu erkunden. Einige exemplarische Einblicke dazu werden im Zuge dieses Beitrags n her dargestellt. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0901308 STENHOUSE's (1981) differentiation between research on education and research in education contributed much to the development of practitioner research in educational settings, yet exemplars of university teachers researching their own practice are rare. Even rarer, in spite of pleas from "international students" for reciprocal dialogue with local academics and students to recognise the value of many different realities and knowledges (KOEHNE, 2006), are practitioners who reflect critically on the personal and professional impact of cultural diversity in higher education (BRUNNER, 2006). In this article, I critique how a narrative inquiry paradigm supported and challenged me to explore different realities and knowledges about learning and teaching in a UK higher education context in my doctoral research with postgraduate students from many different cultures. Practitioner research is, inevitably, an iterative process—research and practice are inextricably linked and continuously evolving. Thus, through the au
Firming Up the Foundations: Reflections on Verifying the Quotations in a Historical Dictionary, with Reference to A Dictionary of South African English on Historical Principles

Abstract: ABSTRACT: A Dictionary of South African English on Historical Principles (DSAEHist) is rooted in quotation evidence. It contains just over 8 000 South African English entries, with about 45 000 citations to support those words included as headwords in the dictionary. Using the legacy electronic format in which DSAEHist was typeset, the Dictionary Unit for South African English embarked on a digitising process of DSAEHist, during which it became clear that the quotations would benefit from a full review involving the verification of all quotations against their original sources. This article examines the evolution of the quotation verification project from its beginnings as an entirely manual exercise to its current use of software developed for the purpose. Some of the project’s achievements, such as antedatings and primary source identification, are highlighted, and challenges, such as unverifiable quotations and sometimes highly convoluted research paths, are described. In addition to this, the article looks at the necessarily systematic nature of quotation handling and the main types of considerations determining methodology (for example, lexicographic, bibliographic and typographic requirements). OPSOMMING: Verstewiging van die fondamente: Gedagtes oor die kontrolering van aanhalings in 'n historiese woordeboek, met verwysing na A Dictionary of South African English on Historical Principles. A Dictionary of South African English on Historical Principles (DSAEHist) het ontstaan uit aanhalingsbewysmateriaal. Dit bevat net oor 8 000 inskrywings van Suid-Afrikaanse Engels, met ongeveer 45 000 sitate om daardie woorde te staaf wat as trefwoorde in die woordeboek ingesluit is. Deur die arga ese elektroniese formaat te gebruik waarin die DSAEHist geset is, het die Woordeboekeenheid van Suid-Afrikaanse Engels 'n digitaliseringsproses van die DSAEHist onderneem waartydens die duidelik geword het dat die aanhalings sal baat by 'n volledige hersiening wat die kontrolering van alle aanhalings in hulle oorspronklike bronne behels. Die artikel ondersoek die vordering van die aanhalingskontroleringsprojek vanaf sy begin as 'n algehele handtaak tot sy huidige gebruik van programmatuur wat vir die doel ontwikkel is. 'n Aantal van die projek se suksesse soos vroe re daterings en primêrebronidentifikasie word uitgelig, en uitdagings soos onkontroleerbare aanhalings en somtyds hoogs verstrengelde navorsingsroetes word beskryf. Hierbenewens kyk die artikel na die noodsaaklik sistematiese aard van aanhalingshantering en die hoofsoorte oorwegings wat metodologie (byvoorbe

Abstract: Teacher preparation cast in Heidegger’s terms is “present-at-hand” (potentially useful) until interrogation makes it ready-to-hand (actually useable). What authentic questions prompt teaching to become ready-to-hand for the beginning teacher? How might we show that the essential particularity for phronesis (knowledge as practical wisdom) resides in teaching other Beings who are not just present or ready for us, but are creating the very world in which we encounter within the classroom? The study described below, undertaken in the 2008/2009 school year, juxtaposes passages from Being and Time (Heidegger, 1962) with observations in the classroom, knowledge of the local university teacher preparation program, and interviews with beginning teachers. So that no teacher might be able to self-identify, “Becky” and “Eloise” are both fictitious names. “Becky” comes from a university program outside the area now teaching in the district described in the study, whereas “Eloise” was educated in the local teacher preparation program.

Abstract: La investigación narrativa está ganando popularidad en el marco de los estudios educativos y multiculturales. En este artículo, cuento la historia de cómo descubrí la investigación narrativa y de qué forma la asumí como el enfoque metodológico más apropiado para mi investigación sobre las experiencias de ense anza y aprendizaje en el contexto de la ense anza superior multicultural. El artículo relata la investigación narrativa, su idoneidad para la investigación multicultural y de la entrevista narrativa como método de investigación. Se ofrece un breve extracto de una conversación de investigación como ilustración de la entrevista narrativa y del uso del análisis dialógico/interpretativo para "narrar" los datos.

Research as Social Construction: Transformative Inquiry
Sheila McNamee
Saúde & Transforma??o Social , 2010,
Abstract: This article introduces a view of research that is compatible with a social constructionist philosophical stance. Research is described as a relational process where the coordination of multiple (and often competing) discourses are at play. The challenge for the researcher is to adopt a reflexive stance toward any inquiry process so that the local, contingent, and situated practices of those participating in the research, as well as those conducting the inquiry can be in dialogue with one another. From a constructionist stance, traditional research (i.e., the scientific method) is viewed as one discursive option for conducting research – but not the only one.
