Day in and day out : women's experience in the family and the reconstruction of their secondary status by Shameem Ahmed( )

3 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The basic research question this thesis addresses is how the secondary status of Bangladeshi women is reinforced through household labour. It is argued that gender relations and housework shape each other. To develop this, it examines the degree of participation of women in different areas of housework and family decisions. The thesis further explores whether the autonomy of women coming from the traditional Bangladeshi family set-up has increased as a result of their immigration to Canada and their exposure to Canadian family values. This is done by a comparison of the family experiences of Canadian and Bangladeshi women. Finally, it is suggested that age, position in the family and length of immigration are the indices of the autonomy of Bangladeshi women in Canada." --

Imagining ethnicity : the role of the Montreal Bangladeshi press in ethnic cohesion by Shameem Ahmed( )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This dissertation explores the relationship between uses of the Bangladeshi immigrant press in Montreal and the reinforcement of its readers' ethnic identity. The work is based on information gathered from two Bangladeshi newspapers published in Montreal---Probashbangla and Banglabarta . The study views ethnic identity as being perceived, enacted, and maintained symbolically through communication activities of ethnic group members. The Bangladeshi immigrant press is considered to be a major vehicle for its readers' perception of ethnic identity, and as a strong stimulus for its reinforcement. It is suggested that the nature and extent of use of the Bangladeshi immigrant press serves as indices of its readers' ethnic maintenance. The theoretical focus of this study is derived from the notion of 'imagined communities', which suggests that people without direct face-to-face contact, through the sharing of symbols, may imagine themselves to be a community. This study argues that through the mediation and promotion of ethnic symbols, the Bangladeshi immigrant press provides its otherwise unconnected readers with a means to imagine their affiliation with the Bangladeshi ethnic community. Frequent exposure to the immigrant press works to reaffirm that identity." --

Topology-aware optimal task allocation framework for mission critical environment: Centralized and decentralized approaches by Shameem Ahmed( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A Mission Critical Environment (MCE) consists of error-prone, highly variable, and highly rate limited communication channels. Paradoxically, this environment substantially increases the need to perform Optimal Task Allocation (OTA), while at the same time making it much harder to perform OTA efficiently. To perform OTA in MCE, in this thesis, I have proposed two novel automated algorithms. The first algorithm is called Centralized Optimal Task Allocation Algorithm (COTAA), where I consider OTA for publish/subscribe-based MCE since it has unique characteristics such as high level publish/subscribe node and task differentiation and high scalability. I also propose an architectural framework and communication protocols emphasizing the unique challenges of MCE. I adopt well known Hungarian Algorithm and Rectangular Assignment Algorithm to solve the OTA problem in polynomial time. The second algorithm is called Decentralized Optimal Task Allocation Algorithm (DOTAA) which exploits the concept of application-layer Distributed Hash Table (DHT) to perform OTA in MCE. Through simulations, I evaluate the performance of both COTAA and DOTAA for multiple mission critical scenarios. The results indicate that both COTAA and DOTAA achieve the goal of OTA in highly dynamic MCEs, with low processing time and communication overhead
