Ethnicity, Gender and Social Change explores the social space occupied by both gender and ethnicity. As recognition of the sociological importance of gender and ethnicity has grown, so has the opportunity for exploring the intersections between them. This volume brings together both theoretical reflections and new research in this key area. For the sociologist this presents a conceptual challenge, while for the individual it may present a series of dilemmas. These are intriguingly traced out in studies which take us from Punjabi families in the UK, to Surinamese migrants in Amsterdam, to Hindu and Muslim women and Black nurses in Britain, the African and Asian diasporas, and gender identity in post-Soviet Latvia.

Class, Ethnicity, Gender and Latino Entrepreneurship

Author: María Eugenia Verdaguer

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1135844631

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 236

Drawing on surveys and in-depth interviews, this book examines the social and economic relations of first-generation Latino entrepreneurs. Verdaguer explores social patterns between and within groups, situating immigrant entrepreneurship within concrete geographical, demographic and historical spaces. Her study not only reveals that Latinos' strategies for access to business ownership and for business development are cut across class, ethnic and gender lines, but also that immigrants' options, practices, and social spaces remain largely shaped by patriarchal gender relations within the immigrant family, community and economy. This book is a necessary addition to the literature on immigration, class, gender relations, and the intersectionality of these issues.

This book tackles assumptions surrounding the family as a changing institution and supposed haven from the public sphere of life. It considers families and social change in terms of concepts of power, inequality, gender, generations, sexuality and ethnicity. Some commentators suggest the family is threatened by increasing economic and social uncertainties and an enhanced focus upon the individual. This book provides a resume of these debates, as well as a critical review of the theories of family and social change.

Change and Development

Issues of Theory, Method, and Application

Author: Eric Amsel,K. Ann Renninger,Ann Renninger

Publisher: Psychology Press

ISBN: 1134791984

Category: Psychology

Page: 352

View: 931

This book and the symposium on which it was based were designed to cross the boundaries of subdiscipline and theoretical orientation to address four critical issues in understanding development: explanation of change and development; the nature and process of change; forms of variability in performance; and the promotion of change through application. The chapters suggest that change and development in target systems from cells to selves, may not be explainable, assessable, or promotable without careful reference to the context (social and otherwise) of the system, and that the process of change and development may involve variability of the system in addition to periods of stability. Together the chapters harken back to the spirit of the grand theory. Instead of proposing a grand theory, they provide an excellent foundation for considering the importance of an individual's (or particular group's) context and variability, and discussions to facilitate thinking about what still needs to be worked out.

Contours in the History of American Schooling

Author: John L. Rury

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 0415526906

Category: EDUCATION

Page: 284

View: 8572

This brief, interpretive history of American schooling focuses on the evolving relationship between education and social change. Like its predecessors, this new edition investigates the impact of social forces such as industrialization, urbanization, immigration and cultural conflict on the development of schools and other educational institutions. It also examines the various ways that schools have contributed to social change, particularly in enhancing the status and accomplishments of certain social groups and not others. Detailed accounts of the experiences of women and minority groups in American history consider how their lives have been affected by education. Changes in this new edition include the following: A more thorough treatment of key concepts such as globalization, human capital, social capital, and cultural capital. Enhanced attention to issues of diversity throughout. Greater thematic coherence as a result of dividing chapter 6 into two chapters, the first focusing on the postwar period and emphasizing the themes of equity and social justice and the second focusing on human capital in education, highlighting the standards movement, federal policy changes and neo-liberal reform. A revision of several focal point discussions for greater clarity and thematic releance. Update discussions of recent changes in educational politics, finance and policy, especially the troubles presently facing No Child Left Behind (NCLB).

Ethnicity, Gender and the Subversion of Nationalism

Author: Bodil Folke Frederiksen,Fiona Wilson

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1135205663

Category: Political Science

Page: 124

View: 3272

This volume explores the politics of identity by analysing the intersections between ethnicity, gender and nationalism in developing societies. These markers of identity are not understood as constituting essences, but as springing from people's core experiences, yearnings and strategic life plans in a context where resources are scarce. As such, identities may be, and are, contested. The intersections are traced across three areas: social and cultural reproduction; ideologies, stereotypes and practices; and nationalist politics and discourse which has tended to remove women from the public arena and construct an ideal of women's domesticity.
