From the margins to new ground : an autoethnography of passage between diciplines by Lea Hagoel( )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors, two sociologists, discover, follow-up, examine, and make sense of the cross-roads where the social and life sciences meet, surprised by the emergent story which they simultaneously witness and document. Together, they focus on Lea Hagoel’s professional path as a medical sociologist fitting in with bio-medical scientific work patterns of a multi-disciplinary team of physicians, nurses, bio-statisticians, IT personnel, molecular biologists, and managerial-administrative team members. Lea shared her experiences with Devorah, and what developed into this book consists of the story itself – the unfolding of events as observed and described by Lea who tells what it was like for a sociologist. Her story unfolds in the context of the ongoing dialogue which lasted more than two decades and turned into an autoethnography à deux. Finally, the ethnographers offer insights into the world of biology and medicine, into women’s lives, into being a native in a disciplinary culture, and into transdisciplinarity. In three parts, the book describes and theorizes the quest of a medical sociologist for transdisciplinarity. Part I explores the theoretical background, Part II presents the story of different stages in Lea’s experiences tracing the trajectory of her growing professional repertoire and discovering the practical meaning of how cross-disciplinary knowledge affects her performance as a researcher in the organization with which she is affiliated. Part III draws conclusions about what moving between disciplines can mean for a researcher.
Ideology, policy, and practice : education for immigrants and minorities in Israel today by Devorah Kalekin-Fishman( )

12 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph discloses how ideology in the domain of immigration is translated into educational policy and turned into school practices in Israel. The volume also provides bases for comparisons with other countries whose avowed goals are to educate for democracy and egalitarianism; contributes to the methodology of the policy sciences by demonstrating a complex model of process assessment; and clarifies the theorization of the process in which policy and practice are intertwined, and revert to ideology. The book will provide cues to prescription-indications of remedies for at least some of the recognized ills

The evolution of alienation : trauma, promise, and the millennium( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Evolution of Alienation: Trauma, Promise, and the Millennium presents a collection of essays that examine the prevalence of alienation in the contemporary world. The book is divided into four sections, each with a focus on how alienation is produced and, perhaps, overcome. Although the very concern with alienation shows awareness of trauma, there are, throughout the book, hints of promise - in technology, in loving and creative domesticity, in activism, and through grassroots initiatives in education."--Jacket

Approaches to educational and social inclusion : international perspectives on theory, policy and key challenges by Gajendra K Verma( )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The editors reflect on contributions from scholars representing Bangladesh, Greece, Israel, New Zealand, Switzerland, UK and USA, by showing how the majority of educational and social institutions in both developed and developing countries have failed to overcome the many barriers to an effective integrated system of education, suggesting ways as to how these barriers might be challenged. By looking closely at the overt and covert injuries of educational and social exclusion, a variety of approaches to overcoming the consequences of those challenges is proposed, drawing together strands of social theory, research data and conceptualisations for social action
Senses in cities : experiences of urban settings by Kelvin E. Y Low( )

11 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Urban landscapes are usually thought of first and foremost as engineered formations designed for functionality. It is quite clear, however, that cities and towns are sites of social structure, scenes of diversity, and hotbeds of transgressions. They are also sources of satisfying social relationships, settings for actions negotiated on an everyday basis, and opportunities for kinesthetic and aesthetic experiences. Within these processes, the senses mediate engagement with the optimism of urban growth, the comfort of urban traditions, and a consciousness of the diverse relationships that embellish urban living, but also with the repellent sights and sounds that invade zones of comfort. This book examines how qualities of place and their sensuous reorganisation elucidate particular sociocultural expressions and practices in urban life. The collection illuminates how urban environments are distinguished, valued, or reconfigured with the senses as media for evaluating authentic spaces and places that endure and change over time"--

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designs for alienation : exploring diverse realities( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Centering on studies of alienation in varieties of institutional milieus as well as on current theoretical debates, this volume speaks to how social institutions concretely frame and foster alienation, legitimating the creation of "others", who are disempowered, manipulated, and marginalized. Among the writers are researchers from Brazil and Canada, from Finland and Sweden, from Siberia, Eastern Europe, the Near East, as well as from the United Kingdom and the United States of America. Thus, the book presents a "panoramic" view of how alienation is brought about in different cultures, including the cultures which are generated by computers." "The book is relevant to the interests of those involved in the social sciences in the widest sense: different branches of sociology (family, education, religion, gender, organizations), political science, anthropology, and social work."--Jacket
An emerging institution? : multiple citizenship in Europe, views of officials( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents findings from an ambitious comparative project. The nine chapters describe results of a theoretically based survey of officials' personal approaches to multiple citizenships. In this study, members of parliaments, heads of government ministries, officials in local government and in NGOs disclose how they feel about multiple citizenships and how they deal with problems that arise. They also discuss their views on education for (multiple) citizenship and on the evolving relationship of national and regional citizenship. Despite the similarities in formal governance structures of the countries analysed in this research study (Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Portugal, Estonia, the UK), there are deep differences in their state histories, in the mode of their association with the European Union, and in their national cultures. These have a decisive impact on the types of problems officials are faced with and on their interpretations of citizenship and sovereignty in the twenty-first century. This volume provides a nuanced and comprehensive understanding of how officials view the dilemmas of citizenship."--Back cover

Multiple citizenship as a challenge to European nation-states by Devorah Kalekin-Fishman( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conventional thinking maintains that people can belong to only one society and can be loyal to only one nation-state. In a world with rising rates of trans-national migration, however, the possibility of participation, belonging, and loyalty to more than one state is ever more evident. This has led to a rethinking of the notion of nation-based citizenship and increased tolerance toward holding citizenship in more than one country. In practice, over half of the world's nation-states currently recognize some form of dual citizenship or dual nationality. This book focuses on clarifying and comparing how the rules of acquisition, maintenance, and revocation of dual citizenship have been modified and justified in eight states associated with the European Union: Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Portugal, and the United Kingdom. The main question is: How have the rules of attribution, loss and/or acquisition of dual citizenship been modified and justified in these eight states? Viewed in the context of international covenants, legislation regarding dual and multiple citizenship is analyzed in terms of how it is made tangible in juridical, social, cultural, and educational domains
Multiple state membership and citizenship in the era of transnational migration by Pirkko Pitkänen( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once a rare phenomenon, multiple state membership and multinational citizenship has become almost commonplace with the rise in transnational mobility. This compilation analyses transnational participation focusing mainly on the interests of individual people and their transnational networks. The focus lies on the perceptions, attitudes, experiences and views on membership and participation of people with dual/multiple citizenship and individuals with multinational background who hold a single citizenship. Eight contributions present findings from the international research project Dual Citizenship, Governance and Education: A Challenge to the European Nation-State (DCE) conducted in 2002-2006 in Britain, France, Portugal, Germany, Finland, Greece, Estonia, and Israel

Radicals in spite of themselves : ultra-orthodox women working outside the haredi community by Devorah Kalekin-Fishman( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Devorah Kalekin-Fisman and Karlheinz Schneider analyze how the relationship between the traditional and the modern is unfolding in a particular milieu by centering on the Haredi women in Israel who become part of the national (rather than the community) work force. The book is based on analyses of interviews with people in the Haredi world. The authors' goal is to attain an understanding of what women's work means to the women, to their families, and to the Haredi community as a whole, by placing women's self-presentations in the context of sociological literatures relating to the sociology of religion and the sociology of gender. The focal issue is the question of how traditionalism fares when the legitimator / monitor of tradition in the home encounters the constraints of modernity through her studies and her work
