Why Gender Matters: What Parents and Teachers N...

A revised and updated edition (with more than 70% new material) of the classic book about innate differences between boys and girls and how best to parent and teach girls and boys successfully, with new chapters on sexual orientation and on transgender and intersex kids. Back in 2005, the first edition of Why Gender Matters broke ground in illuminating the differences between boys and girls—how they perceive the world differently, how they learn differently, how they process emotions and take risks differently. Dr. Sax argued that in failing to recognize these hardwired differences between boys and girls, we ended up reinforcing damaging stereotypes, medicalizing misbehavior, and failing to help kids to reach their full potential. In the intervening decade, the world has changed, with an avalanche of new research which supports, deepens, and expands Dr. Sax's work. This revised and updated edition includes new findings about how boys and girls interact differently with social media and video games; a new discussion of research on gender non-conforming, LGB, and transgender kids, new findings about how girls and boys see differently, hear differently, and even smell differently; and new material about the medicalization of misbehavior. 1.

Best-selling author Joyce Carol Oates returns with an incendiary novel that illuminates the tragic impact of sexual violence, racism, brutality, and power on innocent lives and probes the persistence of stereotypes, the nature of revenge, the complexities of truth, and our insatiable hunger for sensationalism. When a fourteen-year-old girl is the alleged victim of a terrible act of racial violence, the incident shocks and galvanises her community, exacerbating the racial tension that has been simmering in this New Jersey town for decades. In this magisterial work of fiction, Joyce Carol Oates explores the uneasy fault lines in a racially troubled society. In such a tense, charged atmosphere, Oates reveals that there must always be a sacrifice--of innocence, truth, trust, and, ultimately, lives. Unfolding in a succession of multiracial voices, in a community transfixed by this alleged crime and the spectacle unfolding around it, this profound novel exposes what--and who--the sacrifice actually is and what consequences these kind of events hold for us all. Working at the height of her powers, Oates offers a sympathetic portrait of the young girl and her mother and challenges our expectations and beliefs about our society, our biases, and ourselves as the chorus of its voices, from the police to the media to the victim and her family , reaches a crescendo. The Sacrifice offers a shocking new understanding of power and oppression, innocence and guilt, truth and sensationalism, justice and retribution. A chilling exploration of complex social, political, and moral themes--the enduring trauma of the past, modern racial and class tensions, the power of secrets, and the primal decisions we all make to protect those we love. The Sacrifice is a major work of fiction from one of our most revered literary masters. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bahni Turpin, Sisi Aisha Johnson, Karole Foreman, Adam Lazarre-White.

Gender and the language of Advertising
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Gender portrayals have known significant changes in print advertising over the last decades, but gender stereotypes remain widely controversial in the world of advertising nowadays. The verbal and visual language of advertising may reflect a nation s culture, customs and the ways in which men and women think and interact. Therefore, one of the main objectives of this study is to understand how advertisements affect and influence the culturally gendered stereotypes so as to satisfy the norms of a society. More specifically, it seeks to analyse how England and Morocco portray women in the media as compared to men. Besides, it aims at showing how advertisements have an impact on women s decisions and choices, and how this impact is mirrored in the social, cultural and economic life. To achieve these purposes, it will be necessary to analyse women s position in relation to the religious, social, cultural and economic contexts in both societies, and also discuss the language of gender and how women and men are addressed and use language.

The purpose of this book is to examine whether media literacy instruction encourages critical consumption of media. Over two years, Dunlop researched the effects of media literacy instruction on high school students' tendencies to recognize and analyze racial stereotypes in visual media. Dunlop found that when using students' lived experiences and examples from media, media literacy opens up discourse that challenges racial stereotypes in media and it does so in a non-threatening way. Suggesting that current social theory models do not accurately apply to classroom and pedagogical dynamics, Dunlop introduces a social theory model to describe the effects of media literacy instruction on racial identity development, the Recursive Identity Development Model. It is also apparent that Dunlop's book speaks directly to the efficacy of media literacy instruction in creating authentic multicultural conversations within the classroom. Instead of a canned curriculum package that teaches multiculturalism in isolation, Dunlop concludes that media literacy instruction uses students' lived experiences in conjunction with media to question beliefs about stereotyped groups.

The Internet has become a viable source of news,information, entertainment and social integration forpeople worldwide. The Internet is also a medium wheregender identity operates strongly. Feminists, inparticular, hailed the medium as a domain where womencan assert their identities without patriarchalconstraints and can challenge their stereotypicalportrayal in the media. But does the Internet providesuch utopianism? This book provides a contentanalysis of 18 Web sites targeted at Arab women. Theresults demonstrate that the Internet is tarnished bythe same gender stereotypes that have pigeonholedwomen for decades, circumscribing them in theirdomestic roles as housewives and mothers andrendering them merely as objects of beauty and visualgaze. The analysis should be especially useful tostudents, researchers and professionals in the fieldof gender studies.

Screening Ethnicity in the Classroom

-As educators we cannot ignore the influence that popular media have on our own and our students' perceptions, expectations and identities. The volume contains a broad selection of media examples and topics, making the discussion of identity and stereotypes in the classroom accessible to all who seek to address the question: "In the educational context does art imitate life, or does life imitate art?" (Dr. Jennifer S. Hallett) -Difference manifests in myriad of ways in our relationships with others. These relationships play a critical role in the classroom to impact teaching and learning. Each essay offers different and yet important insights into the numerous ways that our racial and/or ethnic identities shape social relations to complicate our understanding of identities. (Sheila S. Lee) -This important volume is situated at the intersection of identity, ethnicity and art. It is far more than a theoretical exploration into these valuable topics but a praxis oriented text that explores how each topic can inform new ways of engaging marginalized communities. (Joel S. Ward)

Conflicts Between Muslims and Christians in Egypt
49,90 € *

Why is the relation between Muslims and Christians in Egypt characterized by conflicts? Why has the relation dramatically changed through the last three decades from co-existence to conflict? These are the main questions in our study. The Egyptian context and background provide much help in understanding the historical roots of conflicts and finding out the most effective tool in creating and regenerating conflicts: rumors. The dynamic of rumors can be manifested and reactivated easily in the absence of cultural pluralism. A lack of pluralism affords to rumors more public space to impact social life. Usually, they create negative stereotypes of the Other to produce an alternative vision as a part of an Othering process. Moreover, rumors spread rapidly from person to person and from one group to another, especially if they are attached to humor or funny jokes, as often happens in Egypt. Due to that dynamic of easy spreading, rumors might be seen as the most effective and divisive tool affecting social relationships. They have been used by regimes, the media and religious leaders in creating conflict and contributing to social division.

Murder, institutionalization, and neglect have been the legacy for persons with disabilities in American, and worldwide. In America, it was not until the Early 1800 s that conditions began to change. Presently, in contrast to members of other minority groups protected under civil rights laws, persons with disabilities have not fully benefited from the civil rights laws meant to protect them as equal persons within American society. The purpose of this project is to use existing media to more rapidly bring about societal changes in perceptions of persons with disabilities in America. A constructivist approach as discussed by Funder (1995), to changing social constructions, and work by Fiske and Taylor (1991), on creating positive schema in order to improve stereotypes of persons. has been incorporated into the planning of activities and presentations for the proposed seminars. It is a goal of this project to reach individuals through the emotional presentation and use of existing media. Erasing barriers between individuals can only be accomplished when there is cultural, buy-in, among the masses.
