  • Os militares como sujeitos "quase étnicos" nos sistemas democráticos (Soldiers as quasi-ethnic subjects in democratic systems)

    Zirker, Daniel (2016)

    Book item
    University of Waikato

    O fim da Guerra Fria teve um impacto profundo sobre nossa compreensão do desenvolvimento sociopolítico. Importantes conteúdos identitários – etnia, religião, língua e mesmo história comum – substituíram a divisão ideológica dicotômica que caracterizou o período. Axiomas das ciências sociais daquele período entraram em colapso, juntamente com os principais sistemas políticos do “Bloco Oriental”.³ Assim, cultura, identidade e etnia passaram a dominar, cada vez mais, a nossa compreensão do comportamento político. Esses são conceitos extraordinariamente complexos e escorregadios,⁴ e todos fazem parte de um novo período de nacionalismo e secessão nacional (Smith, 1981, p.18), que ultrapassou a política internacional. Conceitos como “etnopolítica”, com sua dinâmica e “regras”, têm, cada vez mais, dominado a política das nações democráticas, desafiando as identidades nacionais antes estabelecidas. Em tais países, o setor militar invariavelmente é atraído para o interior da etnopolítica, incrementando ainda mais sua insularidade, enquanto competências avançadas se combinam com a sua missão central, de proteger e preservar a nação. E isso acontece mesmo quando essa nação, por causa da profunda divisão interna, é de difícil identificação. Como Alfred de Vigny argumentou em seu clássico do século XIX, Servitude et grandeur militaires, “O exército é uma nação dentro de uma nação”.⁵ Morris Janowitz pôs a mesma ideia em termos mais precisos: “A profissão militar é mais do que uma ocupação; é todo um estilo de vida completo. O oficial faz parte de uma comunidade cujas exigências sobre sua existência diária transcendem seus deveres oficiais...” (1967, p.175).⁶

  • Changing the acculturation conversation: Indigenous cultural reclamation in Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand

    Dudgeon, Pat; Darlaston-Jones, Dawn; Nikora, Linda Waimarie; Waitoki, Waikaremoana; Pe-Pua, Rogelia; Tran, Le Nhat; Rouhani, Lobna (2016)

    In constructing this chapter the authors make a claim for an Indigenous perspective that is grounded in decolonisation, the struggle for social justice, cultural reclamation and the development of Indigenous kowledges. This offers the opportunity to view acculturation and the associate research through a different lens. In taking this stance, a critical psychology, Indigenous standpoint approach is adopted, while also acknowledging earlier scholars who have attempted to accommodate Indigenous experiences within acculturation theory and the associated research (see for example, Kvernmo, 2006). This chapter begins with a critique of the acculturation framework and practice in researching the acculturation experience of Indigenous peoples. The chapter then presents findings and application to two contexts: Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand. (Chapter 11 covers acculturation research in Australia and New Zealand and would thus be relevant to this chapter.) How acculturation research can be linked to cultural reclamation and reconciliation work is then examined.

  • Jessica connects: A case study focussing on one child’s use of information and communication technology (ICT) in an early childhood education setting

    Archard, Sara; Archard, Simon (2016)

    University of Waikato

    Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is playing an ever increasing role in the lives of people which include young children; The role of ICT in early childhood educational services in Aotearoa New Zealand is still being argued despite curriculum, assessment and policy expectations that endorse and support its integration into practice. This chapter draws upon a small, qualitative case study involving young children and their uses of ICT in one early childhood education setting in Aotearoa New Zealand. A socio-cultural perspective has been used to recognise and examine the notion of children’s understanding and practices of ICT. In this chapter the focus is on Jessica, aged 4 years old, and the ways she uses ICT in her life as tool to document and share her learning and interests. These uses also reflect Jessica as a competent and confident learner using ICT as a cultural tool to mediate her learning in her home and early childhood education setting. The researchers examine the way ICT practices can contribute and fulfil curriculum and policy intentions that can support and endorse the competent, confident learner that reflects the curriculum principle of Empowerment. The chapter supports the view that ICT can be used to enhance the empowerment of the learner. We conclude that the early childhood curriculum and policy in Aotearoa New Zealand justifies the place of ICT in early childhood settings and should guide and inform teachers to use it as a valued learning and teaching tool. The researchers are of the opinion that the teachers have an active and collaborative role in responding to the needs of the 21st century learner to direct their own learning and that this can be guided by the curriculum aspirations in the principle of Empowerment.
