Este trabalho foi realizado com o objetivo de compreender a possibilidade de se promover uma educação formativa que oferecesse condições de resistência à cultura do consumo e da publicidade, com o intuito de retirar os sujeitos de uma posição passiva e espectadora para outra, criadora e engajada. Visualizava-se, inicialmente, realizar uma alfabetização para a publicidade, que proporcionasse aos jovens alguns instrumentos para lidar com estes estímulos de forma lúcida e alerta. Nossa investigação teórica e de campo indicou, finalmente, que esta tarefa pode suscitar resistências psíquicas associadas à retirada do que se gosta, ou acredita-se gostar que envolve sonhos baseados em ter e parecer e o consumo de marcas - aspectos que podem ser entendidos como alguns dos pilares da ideologia e da lógica da indústria cultural sob o capitalismo tardio. Os conceitos teóricos norteadores do trabalho foram sociedade administrada e indústria cultural, como apresentados por Theodor Adorno e Max Horkheimer, da Escola de Frankfurt, assim como as propostas de Adorno para uma educação formativa que atuasse como antídoto a tal indústria. Os conceitos de ideologia, da forma como articulados, depois de Marx, por Wilhelm Reich e retomadas por René Kaës...

The aim of this paper is to focus, on one side, on the importance of visual culture and, on the other side, on the experience of perceptive travel seminars as powerful means to broaden multicultural awareness within higher education for intercultural dialogue and multiculturalism. In my PhD research I developed the concept of inner screen and outer screen (Soares, 2003), within a model of perception between images projected on (outer) screens and images projected in the mind (inner screens). As an essence within this dynamic model we can find universal images, those that C.G. Jung called archetypes. The first part of this paper aims at focusing on the relationship between visual culture (outer screen) and the inner perception of archetypes (universal images) that individuals of all cultures do share. As the essence of growing into multiculturalism consists in identifying which same roots humanity shares, those deep roots that are beyond the diversities of superficial appearance. The study of comparative mythology (C.G.Jung, Joseph Campbell), for example, reveals those analogies that exist among cultures coloured with local specificities and rituals. The aim is therefore the search for the global within the local as a starting point towards intercultural dialogue. In the second part of this paper we will focus our attention on perceptive travel seminars as innovative means of education in movement towards a gain of multicultural awareness. Traditionally higher education is centred indoors at the university. A means to develop intercultural dialogue is connected to a motivation towards getting to know other cultures...

With the undeniable presence of multiculturalism in Canada and the rising globalization of the world, it becomes increasingly important to develop intercultural competence in the second language classroom. The objective of this project was twofold: first, to review the existing literature on cross-cultural awareness and foreign language learning and second, to develop a framework for applicable materials to support and promote intercultural competence in the Ontario French as a Second Language Program. For the purposes of my project I first surveyed the literature related to the importance of culture in foreign language learning. I then reviewed literature concerning goals, frameworks, assessment, materials and strategies related to intercultural competence in order to determine appropriate cultural approaches in the second language classroom. Finally, based on my findings and the Grade 9 Core French curriculum objectives, I developed a practical application in the form of a cultural portfolio. The main themes revealed through the development of cultural activities for student use in the FSL classroom include the promotion of cross-cultural awareness, self-reflection and respect for others regardless of their beliefs or practices.

A global corporation values both profitability and social acceptance; its units mutually negotiate governance and represent a highly interdependent network where centers of excellence and high-potential employees are identified regardless of geographic locations. These companies try to build geocentric, or “world oriented” (Marquardt, 1999, p. 20), organizational cultures. Such culture “transcends cultural differences and establishes ‘beacons’ – values and attitudes – that are comprehensive and compelling” (Kets de Vries & Florent-Treacy, 2002, p. 299) for all employees, regardless of their national origins. Creating a geocentric organizational culture involves transforming each employee’s mindset, beliefs, and behaviors so that he/she can become “a world citizen in spite of having a national identity” (Marquardt, 1999, p. 47). The purpose of this phenomenological study was to explore how employees with different national identities experience a geocentric organizational culture of a global corporation. Phenomenological research aims to understand “how people experience some phenomenon—how they perceive it, describe it, feel about it, judge it, remember it, make sense of it, and talk about it with others” (Patton...

Jim Reason’s book, Managing the Risks of Organisational Accidents, is probably best known for its “Swiss cheese” model of how accidents occur, as well as for its distinction between active failures and latent conditions. Less well known is its penultimate chapter on safety culture, which is arguably the most useful discussion of this concept to have been published. Safety culture is one of a number of ideas currently seen as having the potential to move organisations to higher standards of safety. A second concept which seems to spark interest whenever it is mentioned is mindfulness, advocated by Karl Weick and his associates. Safe behaviour is a third idea which very much in vogue. These three concepts are embedded in slightly different literatures, suggesting that they are more distinct than perhaps they are. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the way these ideas converge, and, in addition, to explore their limitations and tensions. The paper starts with an analysis of safety culture and then draws the connections with organisational mindfulness and safe behaviour strategies. The last section of the paper examines one distinctive safe behaviour strategy - the promotion of risk-awareness among employees.; no

Patient safety is of particular importance within intensive care units (ICUs), where critically ill, vulnerable patients receive complex multidisciplinary care. Prior research has indicated that improving patient safety and reducing errors within healthcare requires a focus on systems and organisational culture issues. This thesis was concerned with three studies. One focused on assessing the patient safety culture and two on quality improvement initiatives within an intensive care unit (ICU) of a large teaching hospital. The first study involved a survey of ICU consultant, registrar and nursing staff regarding aspects of safety culture. This was conducted using an existing Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture. Of the twelve patient safety culture composites assessed, eight had scores lower than 50%, highlighting these as areas for improvement. Overall, while the survey results revealed that teamwork within the ICU was considered a strength, event reporting and patient care handovers and transitions were both considered areas with potential for improvement. The second study focused on the evaluation of a change initiative designed to improve the handover of patient clinical information in the ICU. This study involved a survey and interviews with consultant...

Surgical patients are highly susceptible to preventable harm in health systems that tolerate inadequate patient safety: the World Health Organization recognises that half of preventable adverse events happen in surgical care. Each year, seven million surgical patients are estimated to suffer serious complications from adverse events and up to one million die. Improving safety culture and non-technical skills can reduce adverse events and improve patient safety. This study explores safety culture in operating theatres in Saudi Arabia, where many employees work in an environment that is radically different from their own, in a language that they know imperfectly. It targets cultural differences and their relevance to safety culture dimensions, including teamwork, communication, job satisfaction, stress recognition, working conditions, and perceptions of management. The concept of safety culture is complex, and to achieve sufficient breadth and depth this study employs a sequential explanatory mixed methods design. All health care professionals working in operating theatres in the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health hospitals in Riyadh City were surveyed using the internationally validated Safety Attitudes Questionnaire, administered in both English and Arabic. Items pertaining to local culture were added to assist in measuring cultural factors related to patient safety. Furthermore...

Introducing sustainability policies in the cement industry involves changing not only production technologies, but the organizational culture of a mature industry that is characterized by huge CO₂ emissions and significant environmental impacts. This research attempts to understand the transition process of the industry and its employees as the process is taking place. The actors involved are strongly influenced by often contradictory forces: On one hand the naturalized market dynamics in the context of the automobile dependent society and widespread networks of highways and other concrete structures, and on the other, the growing concern of preserving resources for future generations as a shared responsibility that raises awareness of the negative environmental impacts of cement production. The fieldwork component of the project was comprised of two complementary parts: First, an ethnographic study of how the abstract goal of becoming sustainable is given meaning as it is implemented in Cemex, one of the largest companies in the cement industry at the global level. Second, an analysis of the audit culture mechanisms present in the production of knowledge among experts involved in designing sustainability assessment mechanisms for infrastructure projects. The latter component took place among experts in the academy and in the Texas Department of Transportation...

This study assesses contracting process capabilities at Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) in Patuxent River, Maryland, using the Contract Management Maturity Model (CMMM). The primary purpose of this study is to analyze NAVAIR's contracting processes to identify key process area strengths and weaknesses and to provide a roadmap for improvement. This study also focuses on assessing organizational culture at the NAVAIR Contracting Directorate. Several studies have shown that organizational factors, such as organizational culture, are strong determinants of performance. Other studies have shown that when an organization is dominated by a culture type, the most effective leaders are those that demonstrate a matching leadership style. This study uses the Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI) to identify the organization's current and preferred culture type as viewed by the leadership at the organization. The results will provide the NAVAIR leaders an awareness of culture type so they can match their leadership style to the assessed culture for optimum performance.; US Navy (USN) author.

‣ Culture and Imperialism in a 'Backward' Nation? the Prima-Guerra-D'Africa (1885-96) in Italian Primary Schools

This article attempts to tackle the problem of how a colonial culture that was elaborated through the written word may have impacted on an Italian society that was significantly more 'backward' than its western European counterparts. The Prima Guerra d'Africa (1885-96) has often been seen as a military campaign desired exclusively by an isolated Italian government in a society that was incapable of using the occasion to develop cultural themes that impacted on the desires and aspirations of the 'real' Italy. This supposed societal dysfunction meant that Italy failed to create a 'culture of Imperialism' in the years of the Scramble for Africa in a way that has now come to be considered of such central importance for the histories of France, Britain or even Germany. Through an analysis of the role played primary schools in Italian culture in these years, this article attempts to reverse this view, arguing that even taking into consideration Italy's 'backwardness' there was not only a great awareness of what Italy was supposedly doing in Africa but also a serious attempt to load the events that occurred there with a meaning that had a much more intimate relationship with Italy's population. Although defeat in Africa meant a major setback in this process...

Law and the culture of law find their expression in the many facets of the law's institutions. One of the most visible of these is the architecture of the places in which the legal process is enacted. Through architecture it is possible to communicate widely variant cultural perspectives on the rule of law. In contemporary Australia, an advanced and successful democracy, Aboriginal families continue to experience grossly disproportionate incarceration rates in the justice and correctional institutional systems, often in demonstrably inappropriate environments. Most commentators agree that a significant contributing factor to overrepresentation in these institutions is the high degree of cultural loss that Aboriginal Australia has suffered, and continues to suffer. This paper argues that part of the solution lies in an acknowledgment of and engagement with Aboriginal culture where it persists as an evident and potentially viable feature of Aboriginal communities. Anthropologists, sociologists, Aboriginal advocates and linguists have furnished tools necessary to implement a culturally literate understanding in the endeavors of law reformers...

v.14, n. 2, p.166-184 - jul./dez. 2014.; This paper aims to reflect on the relationship between school knowledge and other social knowledge, and on the inconvenience of privileging literate culture in detriment of other cultures, in capitalist society. From goods carriers narratives we want to understand how they have an awareness of the un equal relationship between different knowledge, how they explain in detail their knowledge elaborated in every day experience of the work universe, and how they present a demand for their recognition, demystifying discourses, which disqualify them, and exposing the weaknesses of a system where they coexist with many educated unemployed people. The narrative excerpts analyzed in this paper will remit us to the Rüsen (2001) prospect on the role of narrative in the construction of historical consciousness and to Portelli (1996), when he says that to narrate is to explain and that the narrative philosophy goes along with the facts, and that, in oral narratives, we can grasp the consciousness work from the work of the word. Dealing with oral narratives, we propose to consider the goods carriers experiences as a stimulus to reflect on the struggles for “liberating” school education meanings...

In today’s globalized world, communication students need to be capable of efficiently communicating across the globe. At ISCAP, part of the 3rd year syllabus in Translation and New Technologies course is focused on culture and the need to be culturally knowledgeable. We argue the approach to incorporate cultural aspects in HE needs to be studentcentered, in order to encompass not only intercultural awareness, but also the 21st century skills students need to be successful and competent citizens. Additionally, as studies have shown, the manipulation of digital tools fosters greater student involvement in learning activities. We have adopted Digital Storytelling - multimodal storytelling technique - to promote a personal, student-centered reflection on intercultural communication. We intend to present student and teacher perspectives on this learning experience and assess its relevance in HE contexts, based on the content analysis of student expressed perspectives on this activity as well as a multimodal analysis of the digital stories created. A preliminary analysis of our case study has demonstrated that Digital Storytelling potentiates two complimentary types of reflection: on the one hand, students felt the need to reflect on their own intercultural knowledge...

La cultura organizacional es un factor determinante en el proceso de implementación y operación exitosa de los sistemas de gestión de calidad, sin embargo, es uno de los aspectos más olvidados por los grupos directivos al momento de trabajar en la obtención de la certificación ISO 9001, lo cual ha generado una percepción errada en los colaboradores de las organizaciones, ocasionando en la mayoría de los casos desconfianza y rechazo a los procesos de calidad. Es por esto, que a través de esta investigación se plantea una nueva propuesta para gestionar el cambio en la cultura de las organizaciones, donde lo primordial sea el ser humano, su desarrollo, y la mejora continua y satisfacción de los clientes; tomando como base investigaciones previas de autores reconocidos y la experiencia de empresas exitosas en la gestión de la calidad dentro del entorno colombiano, donde las costumbres, convicciones y creencias culturales difieren de las existentes en otros países reconocidos en temas de calidad como Japón, EEUU y Reino Unido.; Organizational culture is a determining factor in the process of implementation and successful operation of the quality management systems, however, it is one of the most overlooked aspects by managers when obtaining the ISO 9001 certification...

La enseñanza sobre la cultura del agua debe ser de obligatoria en las escuelas de primaria y secundaria. Se busca consolidar en los colegios los principios vinculados al cuidado del agua limpia y su no contaminación, para llegar a la comunidad, como un efecto multiplicador. La enseñanza de contenidos relacionados al agua debe ingresar a los currículos de los colegios y deben ser obligatorios y permanentes. Debemos aprovechar la condición innata, que a los niños les agrada investigar, es una motivación de su propia naturaleza del crecimiento físico, emocional e intelectual, por lo que es bueno plantearles actividades de aprendizaje como un reto, relacionándolo con ambientes de la calle y de su casa. Lo mejor, después de todo, es ganarse la certeza de los niños mediante la investigación participativa que nos lleve a tomar conciencia, bajo los principios de libertad y verdad. Sin inculcar estas nociones, es imposible hablar de una construcción de la cultura del agua en los niños. Ellos tienen que crear su propia cultura, derivada de ser agentes activos generadores y no sólo consumidores de una cultura impuesta. Los conocimientos vinculados a la historia del agua y sus distintos aspectos relacionados con su escasez y cuidado...

El presente trabajo de grado titulado el modelo de conciencia ambiental y su importancia en la cultura organizacional de Biomax presenta un análisis de la incidencia de dichos factores sobre el comportamiento y las acciones que apropian los colaboradores de la organización en pro del medio ambiente. Se eligió a Biomax S.A. como organización de estudio, teniendo en cuenta el impacto ambiental que ésta representa por su tipología empresarial que la caracteriza como distribuidora de combustibles líquidos derivados del petróleo, lo cual a su vez le exige en un mayor nivel ajustar sus prácticas organizacionales hacia el cumplimiento de la responsabilidad social empresarial. Para ello, se llevó a cabo una construcción teórica que permitió determinar los conceptos claves para el desarrollo de la investigación como son la cultura, organizacional, conciencia ambiental y Responsabilidad Ambiental Empresarial y cómo se enmarcan en la sostenibilidad. Se percibió además la necesidad que desde las organizaciones se traten con más profundidad y cabalidad temas como este que impactan a toda la sociedad...

Este texto se presentó como comunicación al II Congreso Internacional de Etnografía y Educación: Migraciones y Ciudadanías. Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, Barcelona, 5-8 Septiembre 2008.; How it is to be an adolescent among the Santals, in a world still shaped by tradition but where local knowledge has been pervaded by political awareness and modernity.? The Santals, who number more than five millions, consider themselves as a «tribal» people speaking a different language (austro-asiatic) and sharing a way of life which implies values different from those of the Hindus. A central question , here, concerns the transmission of knowledge. In a tribal context, traditional knowledge is to a large extent endogenously determined. Differences in knowledge are no longer controlled by the elders, but still provide much of the momentum for social interaction. Since the colonial period schooling has been important but it has not succeeded to bring an equal opportunity of chances for all children. In brief, I will analyze how the traditional model of transmission is influenced by exogenous factors, such as schooling or politics, and events which allow children to emerge as new agents, developing a peer culture (W. Corsaro & D. Eder 1990). In the context of tribal India...

It has often been pointed out that education/prevention curricula in the schools has not accommodated the communication skills of deaf or hard of hearing students and have often been insensitive to their culture. For example, the lessons are frequently presented in a language that the deaf student cannot understand. Furthermore, it has been indicated that there is a need for further study focusing on alcohol abuse by deaf adolescents and its contributing factors. There is also a need to recognize that the deaf population has been mostly overlooked in terms of understanding that they are at-risk and changes need to be made to accommodate and increase this new awareness. Little research has been done to accurately identify the level of substance abuse among deaf people. Research methods developed to gather this information in hearing communities are often ineffective among deaf people for a variety of reasons which include distrust of predominantly hearing researchers, fear of ostracism and labeling, and the inaccessibility of assessment instruments due to language limitations (Guthmann & Sandberg, 2). This paper will be looking at many issues regarding alcohol abuse by deaf and hard of hearing adolescents and how we can positively change how deaf and hard of hearing adolescents learn about alcohol and drug use and how we can incorporate alcohol awareness into the curriculum in a form that they can understand. In addition...
