Institucionalización de la educación intercultural bilingüe en Chile. Notas y observaciones críticas
Guillermo Williamson
Perfiles educativos , 2012,
Abstract: El artículo discute críticamente el proceso de institucionalización de la educación intercultural bilingüe (EIB) en Chile. Describe y reflexiona sobre su dinámica en el Ministerio de Educación: la conceptualiza y hace un recorrido legal, histórico e institucional del programa de EIB (PEIB) del Ministerio desde la década de los noventa a la fecha. Sustenta que se requiere aún más investigación, pues existe información escasa sobre sus impactos reales en las instituciones estatales, la participación social, los movimientos indígenas, la propia educación intercultural en su aplicación pedagógica, así como sobre los aportes de instituciones del Estado, la academia y la sociedad civil e indígena.
Causal Pluralism versus Epistemic Causality
Jon Williamson
Philosophica , 2006,
Abstract: It is tempting to analyse causality in terms of just one of the indicators of causal relationships, e.g., mechanisms, probabilistic dependencies or independencies, counterfactual conditionals or agency considerations. While such an analysis will surely shed light on some aspect of our concept of cause, it will fail to capture the whole, rather multifarious, notion. So one might instead plump for pluralism: a different analysis for a different occasion. But we do not seem to have lots of different concepts of cause just one eclectic notion. The resolution of this conundrum, I think, requires us to accept that our causal beliefs are generated by a wide variety of indicators, but to deny that this variety of indicators yields a variety of concepts of cause. This focus on the relation between evidence and causal beliefs leads to what I call epistemic causality. Under this view, certain causal beliefs are appropriate or rational on the basis of observed evidence; our notion of cause can be understood purely in terms of these rational beliefs. Causality, then, is a feature of our epistemic representation of the world, rather than of the world itself. This yields one, multifaceted notion of cause.
Educación universitaria y educación intercultural en Chile
Guillermo Williamson
Cuadernos Interculturales , 2008,
Abstract: Este artículo presenta un panorama de la Educación Intercultural Bilingüe (EIB) en la educación superior en Chile, principalmente la universitaria. El eje es la presencia indígena y de lo indígena e intercultural en la Universidad a través de sus políticas, programas, actores, demandas, contenidos culturales, acciones. No aspira a hacer grandes proposiciones, sino a presentar algo de lo que existe y desde ello presentar problemáticas por abordar y tendencias por comprender.
Educación multicultural, educación intercultural bilingüe, educación indígena o educación intercultural?
Guillermo Williamson
Cuadernos Interculturales , 2004,
Abstract: El artículo presenta y analiza, de modo sucinto, algunas de las diversas conceptualizaciones dominantes en América Latina y Chile respecto de la educación orientada para, de o por los pueblos indígenas, bajo contextos pedagógicos y sistémicos educativos de relaciones interculturales, particularmente referidos a la relación entre pueblos indígenas, sociedad y Estado. Plantea la tensión, conceptual y práctica, entre diversas concepciones de interculturalidad y multiculturalidad en la educación, provenientes del continente latinoamericano o de los Estados Unidos. Propone que más que buscar una síntesis y homogenización teórica, se busquen elementos compartidos entre las concepciones que permitan dar cuenta de las diversas realidades étnicas y socio-culturales del continente y sobre todo que contribuyan a fortalecer la lucha indígena y no indígena por sus derechos políticos, culturales y sociales y la construcción de una sociedad democrática y una educación de calidad, más justas, pluralistas, críticas y transformadoras.
Art history in the art school: the critical historians of Camberwell
Beth Williamson
Journal of Art Historiography , 2011,
Abstract: Within the context of a wider study of British art education between 1960 and 2010, this paper takes as its starting point the introduction in 1960 of the Diploma in Art and Design or DipAD in art schools with its attendant requirements for art historical instruction and intellectual enrichment. Beginning with a survey of the Coldstream and Summerson developments in the 1960s, and with specific reference to the teaching of art history, it will consider Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts as a particular case study. The Art History Department at Camberwell was properly established in 1961 by Michael Podro, later to become an influential figure within the discipline of art history from his base at the Department of Art History and Theory at the University of Essex. Referencing Podro’s own thinking on art, this study asks how that might relate to the curriculum he introduced at Camberwell. Further, drawing on the work and careers of those who taught there subsequently, such as Alex Potts, it will also examine how the presence of such individuals might have affected how the curriculum developed over the years that followed.
Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting: what are the best treatments
Steve Williamson
European Journal of Oncology Pharmacy , 2010,
Abstract: The treatment of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) has advanced considerably in recent years. The availability of the second-generation 5-HT3 receptor antagonist palonosetron and the NK1 receptor antagonists has significantly improved the clinical efficacy of anti-emesis. These drugs form a key part of the latest European (ESMO) guidelines on the best management of CINV.

Modular intersection cohomology complexes on flag varieties
Geordie Williamson
Mathematics , 2007,
Abstract: We present a combinatorial procedure (based on the W-graph of the Coxeter group) which shows that the characters of many intersection cohomology complexes on low rank complex flag varieties with coefficients in an arbitrary field are given by Kazhdan-Lusztig basis elements. Our procedure exploits the existence and uniqueness of parity sheaves. In particular we are able to show that the characters of all intersection cohomology complexes with coefficients in a field on the flag variety of type A_n for n < 7 are given by Kazhdan-Lusztig basis elements. By results of Soergel, this implies a part of Lusztig's conjecture for SL(n) with n \le 7. We also give examples where our techniques fail. In the appendix by Tom Braden examples are given of intersection cohomology complexes on the flag varities for SL(8) and SO(8) which have torsion in their stalks or costalks.
Singular Soergel bimodules
Geordie Williamson
Mathematics , 2010,
Abstract: We define and study categories of singular Soergel bimodules, which are certain natural generalisations of Soergel bimodules. Indecomposable singular Soergel bimodules are classified, and we conclude that the split Grothendieck group of the 2-category of singular Soergel bimodules is isomorphic to the Schur algebroid. Soergel's conjecture on the characters of indecomposable Soergel bimodules in characteristic zero is shown to imply a similar conjecture for the characters of singular Soergel bimodules.
On an analogue of the James conjecture
Geordie Williamson
Mathematics , 2012,
Abstract: We give a counterexample to the most optimistic analogue (due to Kleshchev and Ram) of the James conjecture for Khovanov-Lauda-Rouquier algebras associated to simply-laced Dynkin diagrams. The first counterexample occurs in type A_5 for p = 2 and involves the same singularity used by Kashiwara and Saito to show the reducibility of the characteristic variety of an intersection cohomology D-module on a quiver variety. Using recent results of Polo one can give counterexamples in type A in all characteristics.
