Bachelor Thesis from the year 2018 in the subject Cultural Studies - Basics and Definitions, grade: 75%, Anglia Ruskin University, course: Bachelors (Hons) in International Management, language: English, abstract: Hofstede's cultural dimensions is a cultural dimension tool which was used as the independent variable and its impact was tested on the Human Development Index, a socio-economic cultural development index; only in Europe. Through research concluded that both these models were the best fit due to availability of data as well as time constraints. The literature gap revealed that no other research did this research fully with all cultural dimensions, HDI, and only in Europe. A longitudinal secondary quantitative study was done considering the latest 5 years of HDI scores from UNDP and a regression, descriptive analysis, and normality test was done to determine the impact. Data was collected through reputable primary sources online. The test revealed that only 3 of the cultural dimensions proved to have an impact on HDI. Power distance had a negative significant impact. Individualism and Indulgence had a significant positive impact. Three of the six null hypotheses were deemed true. This study can provide useful insights for businesses and academics that are looking towards the continent of Europe to further expand their cultural knowledge for various purposes.

Therefore, theoretical and practical insights in the subject of culture, its implicit and explicit differences, as well as its measurements will be provided. Due to the fact that communication - as a major cultural attribute - is the most obvious level on which cultural differences are recognized, insights in the topic of cross-cultural and intercultural communication will be given. A thorough discussion of the concept of culture and communication is beyond the scope of this paper, but in what follows, an adequate overview of recognized and well-known researchers' theories and findings will be provided. Besides giving theoretical background knowledge, it will be examined whether the internationally defined soft skills of intercultural competence can be seen as an approach towards a universal interculture, likewise a universal communication. The topic of the present thesis will be illustrated by a case study, as well as researched and evaluated by a field study conducted at one of the most culturally diverse organization - the United Nations.

Helen Omole Extracting cultural relationships from helicopter accidents

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2014 in the subject Sociology - Culture, Technology, Peoples / Nations, , language: English, abstract: This paper explores the role of culture and its relationships in helicopter accidents based on the cultural differences between two different countries. Helicopter operations in Nigeria and the UK share many common features including a prominent offshore oil industry that places heavy demands on helicopter transport, but they differ in terms of the cultural context within which these operations take place. Nigeria shows themes associated with high cultural context. The UK, themes were predominately associated with low cultural context. Air accident investigation reports were subjected to an in-depth theme-based content analysis in order to distil the role of culture in their causation. This analysis was selected as the means by which to extract cultural factors from the reports and variables influencing human error leading to accidents. Text and cluster analysis was used as an exploratory tool to observe patterns by grouping the nodes that shared similar themes. The study shows two key findings. First, the sampled UK and Nigerian accident reports differ in respect to weak and strong uncertainty avoidance. Secondly, and more importantly, cultural factors, although not currently well represented in accident analysis were prominent in the sampled accident reports.

Jesús Rosales Spanish Perspectives on Chicano Literature. Literary and Cultural Essays

3327 руб.
In their comprehensive study Spanish Perspectives on Chicano Literature: Literary and Cultural Essays, editors Jesús Rosales and Vanessa Fonseca provide a fresh set of perspectives on the field of Chicano literary and cultural studies. Composed of essays by scholars who live and work in the United States in addition to those who work primarily in Spain, the book examines how Spanish literary critics view and study Chicano literature. In general, these critics demonstrate a deep interest in Chicano culture in relation to its American, Mexican, and Spanish identities, or multiple cultural mestizajes. For Chicanos this interest is intriguing, for they see Spain's vision of the Chicano both with inviting enthusiasm and justifiable reservation-enthusiasm because this interest shows a humanistic concern in understanding their social issues (national identity, bilingualism, immigration, feminism, and so on) in relation to Spain's own, and reservation because there still prevails an "open wound" from their historical connection with that country. In other words, a lingering Spanish colonial presence still exists in the Chicano psyche. These Spanish perspectives are important to consider as Chicano literature reflects on its place in twenty-first-century America and its transnational and global aspirations.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - General, grade: 2,0, University of Tubingen (International Business), language: English, abstract: This thesis explores the significance of organizational justice in international joint ventures (IJV), from an organizational as well as a cultural perspective. The majority of studies on organizational justice were conducted within organizations and in a mono-cultural context. However, in the face of increasing globalization and growing popularity of IJV activities, the study of fairness in a cross-cultural context becomes more and more important. Therefore, this thesis seeks to bring organizational justice into relation with culture by using an IJV context, and serve as a starting point for further research in this area. The three dimensions of justice, distributive, procedural, and interactional justice, positively affect IJV performance through their distinct and interactive effects. In this setting, culture has a moderating influence on justice perceptions, which can be assessed though bringing justice perspectives together with Hofstede's cultural dimensions. Effects on fairness perceptions in different cultures can be outlined and contrasted. On this basis, implications for theoretical discussion and managerial practice in cross-cultural joint ventures can be derived. Together with further research, managers could use these findings to develop transcultural justice competencies. To decide which of ...

Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 74%, University of Warwick, language: English, abstract: International marketers are trying to encourage positive electronic word-of-mouth (eWoM) about their products and services. The question of whether consumers in different cultures respond differently to eWoM is critical if marketers are to leverage the potentially global power of eWoM. The central objective of this study is to critically evaluate whether espoused national cultural values at the individual level influence the effect of eWoM on consumers' purchase intention.Prior cross-cultural eWoM research mostly studied culture at the country level. This paper draws on perspectives in cultural psychology and cross-cultural research that argue that individuals espouse national cultural values to different degrees. Therefore, predicting the influence of culture on individuals' behaviour necessitates to assess cultural values by personality tests at the individual level of analysis. Yet, no research can sufficiently answer the question of how individual level culture may influence the effect of eWoM on purchase intention. The present research addresses this gap by measuring espoused national cultural values of power distance, uncertainty avoidance, individualism/collectivism, and masculinity/ femininity at the individual level of analysis and investigating their ...

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Company formation, Business Plans, grade: 1,7, Justus-Liebig-University Giessen (Anglistik), language: English, abstract: This thesis examines the effect of cultural factors on entrepreneurship in different eco-systems including attitudes and the role of journalism.The object of this thesis is an exemplary examination of the question in a national context, whether and to what extent cultural dimensions influence individual's propensity to found a start-up. The entrepreneurial activities in Germany and the United States differ from each other which is also reasoned by different value systems and attitudes. Indications of rather an individualist or collectivist and rather a risk-averse or risk-affine attitude towards start-ups and its foundation will be focused upon. Building on Hofstede's research on cultural dimensions, newspaper and blog articles from the United States and Germany dealing with start-up foundations and the attitude of the respective society on start-ups including the founders' views will be analyzed. Since all cultural dimensions are intercorrelated, quantifying the effects of how much single cultural dimensions influence start-up foundations while excluding the influence of other dimensions is difficult.Therefore, the thesis does not examine the effects of the above mentioned two cultural dimensions isolated from other cultural factors, but it sets a focus on those two dimensi...

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2017 in the subject Speech Science / Linguistics, grade: B, University of Education, course: EXPERIMENTAL PHONETICS, language: English, abstract: The positions of individual vowels in the acoustics vowels space often change over time in languages of which Asante-Twi a dialect of Akan is not an exception. Sound changes in languages are typically associated with social factors like age, gender, social class. This study will explore the changes in the location of vowels as produced by four generational of speakers of Asante-Twi speakers. Fant (1966) also posits that since the length of the vocal track determines the overall patterns change, age and depend on gender. The current study will therefore investigate whether generational differences can affect vowel quality by comparing speakers of Asante-Twi with ages 6-14, 19-24, 40-50 and 60+.

Exploring Cultural Dynamics and Tensions Within Service-Learning

6039 руб.
Service-learning is an exciting pedagogy and field of study, offering insight into how academic study andcommunity engagement blend to create social change. In its most traditional conceptualization, servicelearningactivities typically manifest within communities where outside individuals address a need. Servicelearningis purported to have a transforming effect on individual student perspectives by providing studentsthe opportunity to interact with people and enter into situations that allow students to test their predispositiontowards others. However, the literature on the impact of service-learning on participants' acceptance ofdiversity and development of open-mindedness reports mixed outcomes.The purpose of this book is to explore cultural tensions and dynamics within the field of service-learning. It isnot meant to be an exhaustive review of the interplay between culture and service learning, but rather a starting point for an ongoing conversationabout how this complex topic impacts the field. In 18 chapters, educators, students, and administrators investigate the cultural values of servicelearningitself and the tensions created when this is at odds with the values of others within K-12 and higher education in the United States and abroad.Authors include community organization representatives, researchers, directors of offices of community engagement, university administrators, juniorand senior faculty, and former service-learning undergraduate students.

The Anthropology of Moralities

4002 руб.
Anthropologists have been keenly aware of the tension between cultural relativism and absolute norms, and nowhere has this been more acute than with regards to moral values. Can we study the Other's morality without applying our own normative judgments? How do social anthropologists keep both the distance required by science and the empathy required for the analysis of lived experiences? The plurality of moralities has not received an explicit and focused attention until recently, when accelerated globalization often resulted in the collision of different value systems. Observing, describing and assessing values cross-culturally, the authors propose various methodological approaches to the study of moralities, illustrated with rich ethnographic accounts, thus offering a valuable guide for students of anthropology, sociology and cultural studies and for professionals concerned with the empirical and cross-cultural study of values.

Kazumi Okamoto Academic Culture. An Analytical Framework for Understanding Academic Work . A Case Study about the Social Science Academe in Japan

5539 руб.
That we live in a world ruled and confused by cultural diversities has become common sense. It was the social sciences that gave birth to a new theoretical paradigm, the creation of cultural theories. Since then, social science theorizing applies to any social phenomenon across the world exploring cultural diversities in any social practice-except in regard to the social sciences and how they practice the creation of knowledge. How academics in the social sciences across the world create knowledge is no topic for cultural theories. Social science theorizing seemingly assumes that creating knowledge does not know such diversities. Kazumi Okamoto presents the development of an analytical instrument that helps study 'academic culture', analyze 'academic practices' of how social sciences create and distribute knowledge, and the influence the 'academic environment' has on their knowledge productions. Applying this theoretical tool to the academe in Japan, she further presents a case study about how social scientists in Japan interpret academic practices and how they are affected by their academic environment. Studying the academic culture in the case of Japan, she reveals that not only the academic practices and the academic environment of the academe in Japan show much less diversities than cultural theories tend to presuppose, but that the assumption that creating social science knowledge does not know cultural diversities is an error as well.

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,0, Oxford Brookes University, language: English, abstract: Global markets are changing faster than ever and increasing international competition makes it necessary for managers to understand not only the domestic culture but also the host country's culture. Derived from globalisation, successful cross-cultural management is gaining in importance and its need for understanding of cultural differences becomes essential. Because of this it is argued that, with the increasing importance of a cross-cultural understanding, Hofstede's (1980) model of cultural dimensions gains proportional importance and attracts notice at the same time. His study is widely used in global operating organisations within trainings and workshops. The first step of effective cross-cultural management is the awareness that cultural differences exist and domestic strategies might fail in host countries.Even though, Hofstede's (1980) cultural study is the most important one and widely known, there are many other cultural studies, which are only partly supporting his study. For each and every model of cultural identifications arouse praise and criticism and Hofstede was not spared by criticism. The main criticism refers to the methodology Hofstede used and many authors questioned its validity and reliability. Another major critique is that the nearly 40-years old survey f...

Financial markets frequently deviate from postulated efficiency, which is largely caused by the "irrationalities" of investors. This book contributes to the understanding of how investment strategies are driven by psychological forces. Two of the three presented studies provide evidence on the occurrence and consequences of egocentric biases, such as overconfidence and illusion of control. The third study provides a novel behavioural explanation for the equity home bias, an instance of internationally poorly diversified portfolios, based on social identity. The presented psychological phenomena can hardly be investigated with real financial market data. Hence, experimental methods are used to identify the fundamental cause-effect relationships in a controlled way. This book presents pieces of new evidence on decision making in the interdisciplinary field of economics, finance and psychology and provides insights into state-of-the-art experimental economics research.

The Effects of English on Arabic Broadcasts: A Study in Comparative Pragmatics describes the linguistic and cultural impact of English on Arabic. The impact of English on Arabic broadcasts has led to controversial reactions among Arabs, to comply with the cultural concepts and beliefs, to counteract heterodox beliefs and foreign concepts, or to interact with them. These three reactions to the torrential influences of English culture correspond to novel linguistic effects on Arabic particularly in the uses of speech acts, deictics and prosodic features. The book comprises five chapters; in the first two theoretical chapters the author introduces his own views of the User's Dynamic Knowledge of Context (UDKC), an original theoretical approach to context to suit the comparative analyses of speech acts, deictic and prosodic features in the following three analytic chapters.

This book is aventure in critical auto-ethnography, exploring critique through this ethnographic techniquehas allowed me to bring stories to the reader that work to illuminate the personal nature ofeducational ethics. It works to fill the gap in education critique where self-examination ismissing. It is a cultural study of five different educational environments. Research incultural studies attempts to account for cultural objects under conditions constrained bypower and defined by contestation, conflict, and change. Cultural Studies grapples with thevolatility of cultural happenings. Throwing Voices emphasizes self-reflexivity; an awarenessthat scholars and their scholarship are themselves caught up in the social currents and in theglobal circulation of meanings being studied. In taking up questions from this perspective,cultural studies both draws on and develops key strands of contemporary cultural theory: semiotics, deconstruction andpoststructuralism, dialogics, subaltern and postcolonial studies . The field also draws on and develops a number of innovativemethodologies: autoethnography, blurred genres of writing, and other new forms of critical research.Within, I pay homage to satirist Lenny Bruce, and it earned me a one way ticket to scholarly palookaville.

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,7, Buckinghamshire New University, language: English, abstract: The aim of this study is to identify and evaluate the cultural challenges within organisational leadership imposed by their internationalisation activities. This dissertation aims to create an understanding for the relevance of cultural differences within the internationalisation process. It does so by analysing the cultural differences between the German and Swedish construction supply industries. The research question is; what are the cultural challenges related to leadership that organisations face when doing business in foreign countries. I discuss this question based on the analysis of the contemporary academic literature, whereby Hofstede's cultural model is considered. Semi-structured expert interviews were used to analyse the current cultural situation in both industries as well as to evaluate the findings of the theory. In conclusion, the analysis of the German and Swedish construction supply industries showed a significant difference between the contemporary literature and the primary findings of this thesis. Certain aspects of the cultural dimensions of both industries did not correspond to the literature's view of each country's culture. Although both industries are similar they show differences, which are recognised within the approach to leadership. Cultural chan...

The Case Study House program (1945-1966) was an exceptional, innovative, and unique event in the history of American architecture. Concentrated on the Los Angeles area, the program oversaw the design of 36 prototype homes, and sought to make available plans for modern residences that could be built easily and cheaply during the postwar building boom. This highly experimental program generated designs that would redefine the modern home, and its profound influence on architecture-American and international-was evident during the program's existence and remains so today. This compact guide includes all the projects featured in our XL edition, with over 150 photos and plans, and a map showing the locations of all the Case Study Houses, including those no longer existant.

Inspired by widespread convergent phenomena, this book attempts to study translation from the perspective of global convergence. With concrete examples of both linguistic and cultural convergence, the interdependent relationships respectively between language and culture and between translation and convergence are explored as prerequisites for elaborating on the focal theme. Then, based on an irresistible tendency of convergence and worldwide linguistic and cultural crises, the book goes a step further to focus on analyzing proper cross-culture translation strategies by putting forward relevant translation principles and detailed translation techniques with vivid examples. For better understanding and further reference, major factors influencing the choice of translation strategies are illustrated and the translator is suggested to make a cautious and comprehensive decision of the most practical approach. The research should be especially useful to those who are interested or engaged in translation studies.

This study provides a great deal of interesting and important information on literary translation as an international phenomenon, in its aesthetic, social, and cultural dimensions. It will be of value not only to the specialist on Russia but also to scholars and students in the broad field of comparative literature.-Deming Brown, author of The Last Years of Soviet Russian Literature: Prose Fiction, 1975-1991In this rich historical study, Maurice Friedberg recounts the impact of translation on the Russian literary process. In tracing the explosion of literary translation in nineteenth-century Russia, Friedberg determines that it introduced new issues of cultural, aesthetic, and political values.Beginning with Pushkin in the early nineteenth century, Friedberg traces the history of translation throughout the lives of Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, and, more recently, Pasternak. His analysis includes two translators who became Russia's leading literary figures: Zhukovsky, whose renditions of German poetry became famous, and Vvedensky, who introduced Charles Dickens to Russia. In the twentieth century, Friedberg points to Pasternak's Faust to show how apolitical authors welcomed free translation, which offered them an alternative to the original writing from which they had been banned by Soviet authorities.By introducing Western literary works, Russian translators provided new models for Russian literature. Friedberg discusses the usual battles fought between partisans of literalis...

All over Africa, an explosion in cultural productions of various genres is in evidence. Whether in relation to music, song and dance, drama, poetry, film, documentaries, photography, cartoons, fine arts, novels and short stories, essays, and (auto)biography; the continent is experiencing a robust outpouring of creative power that is as remarkable for its originality as its all-round diversity. Beginning from the late 1970s and early 1980s, the African continent has experienced the longest and deepest economic crises than at any other time since the period after the Second World War. Interestingly however, while practically every indicator of economic development was declining in nominal and/ or real terms for most aspects of the continent, cultural productions were on the increase. Out of adversity, the creative genius of the African produced cultural forms that at once spoke to crises and sought to transcend them. The current climate of cultural pluralism that has been produced in no small part by globalization has not been accompanied by an adequate pluralism of ideas on what culture is, and/or should be; nor informed by an equal claim to the production of the cultural - packaged or not. Globalization has seen to movement and mixture, contact and linkage, interaction and exchange where cultural flows of capital, people, commodities, images and ideologies have meant that the globe has become a space, with new asymmetries, for an increasing intertwinement of the lives of peop...

It seeks to combine approaches by Carl Schmitt, Jacques Derrida and Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari with narrative texts by Daniel Defoe, Osacar Wilde, Nathaniel Hawthorne and others. In a seperate chapter it offers a short cultural history of the view on the sea as it has shaped oriental perception from biblical and classical texts until today. The main aim is to unravel the mode in which liminal landscapes and liminal characters influence each other as well as an attempt at historizising the narrative constructions that take place on the fascinating and ambivalent border between the liquid and the solid state.

Three sections of tenth grade economics-government classes were randomly assigned to two experimental conditions and one control condition. One class was taught the technical vocabulary as selected by the publisher, and the other experimental class was taught general vocabulary chosen by a criteria created by the researcher, while the control class had no changes made to its lessons. The two experimental classes were taught by the researcher the vocabulary for every chapter. At the beginning and at the end of the study,students were tested on the words,and given a standardized reading test. The performance of each of the classes on these measures was analyzed to determine whether or not the students were learning the vocabulary that was being taught. The question being asked was: Will teaching general vocabulary lead to a greater increase in content vocabulary knowledge than teaching technical vocabulary alone?

Quantum electrodynamics is an essential building block and an integral part of the gauge theory of unified electromagnetic, weak, and strong interactions, the so-called standard model. Its failure or breakdown at some level would have a most profound impact on the theoretical foundations of elementary particle physics as a whole. Thus the validity of QED has been the subject of intense experimental tests over more than 40 years of its history. This volume presents an up-to-date review of high precision experimental tests of QED together with comprehensive discussion of required theoretical work.

Experimental solid mechanics is the study of materials to determine their physical properties. This study might include performing a stress analysis or measuring the extent of displacement, shape, strain and stress which a material suffers under controlled conditions. In the last few years there have been remarkable developments in experimental techniques that measure shape, displacement and strains and these sorts of experiments are increasingly conducted using computational techniques. Experimental Mechanics of Solids is a comprehensive introduction to the topics, technologies and methods of experimental mechanics of solids. It begins by establishing the fundamentals of continuum mechanics, explaining key areas such as the equations used, stresses and strains, and two and three dimensional problems. Having laid down the foundations of the topic, the book then moves on to look at specific techniques and technologies with emphasis on the most recent developments such as optics and image processing. Most of the current computational methods, as well as practical ones, are included to ensure that the book provides information essential to the reader in practical or research applications. Key features: Presents widely used and accepted methodologies that are based on research and development work of the lead author Systematically works through the topics and theories of experimental mechanics including detailed treatments of the Moire, Speckle and holographic optical methods Includes illustrations and diagrams to illuminate the topic clearly for the reader Provides a comprehensive introduction to the topic, and also acts as a quick reference guide This comprehensive book forms an invaluable resource for graduate students and is also a point of reference for researchers and practitioners in structural and materials engineering.
