Tuberculosis y Enfermedad Mental. La Continuidad del Aislamiento en la Ciudad de Buenos Aires durante el Siglo XX
Alejandro Kohl
E? : Revista de Humanidades Médicas & Estudios Sociales de la Ciencia y la Tecnología , 2010,
Abstract: Las enfermedades mentales graves y la tuberculosis son afecciones muy disímiles desde casi todo punto de vista. No obstante, la organización institucional de la ciudad de Buenos Aires para el tratamiento de la tuberculosis en la primera mitad del siglo XX y la de las enfermedades mentales en su segunda mitad, guardan sugestivas similitudes. El motivo es la convergencia de ambas con estrategias de control social. Esto fue propiciado por condicionantes tanto sociales como técnicos, pero principalmente por valores fuertemente arraigados en la población. La implementación del aislamiento de los afectados para garantizar en primer lugar el orden público y después su tratamiento, dio origen en cada caso a una red de instituciones cuyas similitudes dan testimonio de la continua propensión a priorizar el control social a la prevención de la enfermedad y a la promoción de la salud.

Abstract: The American Studies Journal 55 is an unusual edition if we compare it to all its predecessors. It is a collection of memoir pieces, a reflection upon a specific theme, a look back at a significant moment or moments by five women: art historian and writer Moira Roth, novelists Nahid Rachlin and Güneli Gün, poet Lisa Suhair Majaj, and artist and writer Mindy Weisel. All of them were inspired by the topic that I suggested to them: “Women’s Voices from the House of Time,” which comes from the title of a poem by Moira Roth now serving as the gate through which the reader approaches this journal.

Abstract: Issue 54 of the American Studies Journal explores a topic particularly interesting for teachers and students of American Studies: What is it like to grow up in urban spaces in the U.S.? Teaching “the city” is a common topic in the EFL classroom, and “youth culture” another. But both are difficult to tackle. There is always the danger of misrepresenting a topic so vast, creating stereotypes rather than questioning them and establishing a limited view on the subject.

National Integration in Guinea-Bissau since Independence
Christoph Kohl
Cadernos de Estudos Africanos , 2011, DOI: 10.4000/cea.155
Abstract: This article explores national integration in Guinea-Bissau since independence in 1974. I argue that the level of national integration is quite strong – despite the ethnic diversity prevalent in the country. As I will show, national integration is due to the ideology and policy of the former independence movement and the early postcolonial state that advocated a national-unity-in-ethnic-diversity-model. Bissau-Guineans know to separate between the state and the nation, a distinction sometimes neglected in analyses. As my findings suggest, Bissau-Guineans victimize their nation while confronting it with the state. A foreign invasion during the 1998-99 Military Conflict fostered national integration even more. O artigo explora a integra o nacional na Guiné-Bissau desde a independência do país em 1974. O nível de integra o nacional é – no meu modo de ver – relativamente forte, apesar da diversidade étnica naquele país da áfrica Ocidental. Como vou demonstrar, a integra o nacional baseia-se na ideologia e política do antigo movimento independentista e no jovem Estado pós-colonial, que advogavam um modelo de unidade-nacional-na-diversidade-étnica. Os guineenses sabem diferenciar entre o Estado e a na o, uma distin o às vezes negligenciada nas análises. Como sugerem os resultados da minha pesquisa de campo, os guineenses vitimizam a sua na o enquanto confrontam a na o com o Estado. Uma invas o estrangeira durante o conflito militar de 1998-99 refor ou ainda mais a integra o nacional.
Hopf-Galois Structures Arising From Groups with Unique Subgroup of Order p
Timothy Kohl
Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: For $\Gamma$ a group of order $mp$ for $p$ prime where $gcd(p,m)=1$, we consider those regular subgroups $N\leq Perm(\Gamma)$ normalized by $\lambda(\Gamma)$, the left regular representation of $\Gamma$. These subgroups are in one-to-one correspondence with the Hopf-Galois structures on separable field extensions $L/K$ with $\Gamma=Gal(L/K)$. This is a follow up to the author's earlier work where, by assuming $p>m$, one has that all such $N$ lie within the normalizer of the $p$-Sylow subgroup of $\lambda(\Gamma)$. Here we show that one only need assume that all groups of a given order $mp$ have a unique $p$-Sylow subgroup, and that $p$ not be a divisor of the automorphism groups of any group of order $m$. As such, we extend the applicability of the program for computing these regular subgroups $N$ and concordantly the corresponding Hopf-Galois structures on separable extensions of degree $mp$.
Ciclos de vida: algumas quest?es sobre a psicologia do adulto
Oliveira, Marta Kohl de;
Educa??o e Pesquisa , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-97022004000200002
Abstract: this article seeks to systematize some reflections on the possibility of formulating a psychology of the adult, starting from the definition of psychological development as a transformation that occurs throughout the life, and from the postulation of adulthood as a culturally organized stage of the subject's passage through the typically human existence. based on the assertion of the importance of the cultural practices and activities to the constitution of the psyche, especially through the execution of tasks and the use of instruments and signs as mediators of the psychological activity, ways of historicizing the psychology of the adult are pursued. to that end, a deeper understanding of the organization of different cultural practices is proposed, as well as of the shared construction of sense and meanings, of the internalization of ways of doing, thinking and producing culture in each one of its concrete domains, whose purpose is to go beyond the more common practice in psychology, i.e., that of presenting as universal that which is historically contextualized. with the intention of enhancing the understanding about a specific group of adults, a discussion is included in this article of empirical data obtained during the preliminary stage of a research on urban workers attending a supletivo course (a substitute course for secondary education) with the purpose of increasing schooling in connection with their preparation for work. implications for the education of youngsters and adults, implied throughout the text, are briefly elucidated at the end.
Paper and digital repositories in the United States
David F. Kohl
Liber Quarterly : The Journal of European Research Libraries , 2003,
Abstract: What you've asked me to talk about today is basically what can libraries do with all the stuff they have and continue to get. Where do we put it all; what do we do with it? As we know, libraries have three core functions: collecting, organizing and preserving the key documents of the human enterprise. And, with apologies to Saint Paul, the greatest of these is preservation. For without preservation neither of the first two ultimately matter. My assignment this morning is to bring you up to date on one specific aspect of the preservation function, library repositories, and indeed, library repository developments in the US. The plan for this morning's presentation is the following: after a brief background review to give us a context for American developments we will examine first the various kinds of print repositories and then the various initiatives for electronic repositories. Because other presentations at this conference deal with electronic repositories, the main focus today will be on U.S. print repositories.
Shared Social Fields: evolutionary convergence in prehistory and contemporary practice
Kohl, Philip L.
Trabajos de Prehistoria , 2009,
Abstract: In this article, I distinguish between evolutionary and historica1 perspectives on the past, adopting the concept of “social fields” to argue for a macrohistorical interpretation of the archaeological record. The unit of analysis is not an archaeological culture or civilization but social groups inextricably involved with other groups in weblike interconnections in which technologies are diffused and modified by other groups caught up in these same processes. Such interconnections can best be traced archaeologically by examining the spread of technologies and subsistence practices. Other macrohistorical perspectives on the past, such as world systems analysis, often demand too much of the archaeological record and are used anachronistically. Prehistory documents the ever-increasing participation of groups in social fields that ultimately converge. I conclude by emphasizing the need for a perspective on the past that emphasizes its shared nature in which all peoples have contributed and benefited from interactions with their neighbours. En este artículo distingo entre perspectivas evolucionistas e históricas sobre el pasado, adoptando el concepto de “ámbitos sociales” para defender una interpretación macrohistórica del registro arqueológico. La unidad de análisis no es una cultura o civilización arqueológica sino los grupos sociales implicados de manera inextricable con otros grupos en interconexiones reticulares en las que las tecnologías son difundidas y modificadas por otros grupos atrapados en esos mismos procesos. Tales interconexiones pueden ser trazadas mejor arqueológicamente examinando la expansión de las tecnologías y las prácticas subsistenciales. Otras perspectivas macrohistóricas sobre el pasado, como el análisis de los sistemas mundiales, a menudo exigen demasiado del registro arqueológico y son empleadas de manera anacrónica. La Prehistoria documenta la siempre creciente participación de los grupos en ámbitos sociales que, finalmente, convergen. Concluyo haciendo hincapié en la necesidad de una perspectiva acerca del pasado que resalte su naturaleza compartida en la que todos los pueblos han contribuido a las interacciones con sus vecinos y se han beneficiado de ellas.
