An island republic in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Its capital is Nicosia. It was colonized by the Phoenicians and ancient Greeks and ruled successively by the Assyrian, Persian, Ptolemaic, Roman, and Byzantine Empires. It was under various countries from the 12th to the 20th century but became independent in 1960. The name comes from the Greek Kupros, probably representing the Sumerian kabar or gabar, copper, famous in historic times for its copper mines. The cypress tree is also named after the island.

Explicit guidelines for qualitative research: a step in the right direction, a defence of the 'soft' option, or a form of sociological imperialism? (1/338)

Within the context of health service research, qualitative research has sometimes been seen as a 'soft' approach, lacking scientific rigour. In order to promote the legitimacy of using qualitative methodology in this field, numerous social scientists have produced checklists, guidelines or manuals for researchers to follow when conducting and writing up qualitative work. However, those working in the health service should be aware that social scientists are not all in agreement about the way in which qualitative work should be conducted, and they should not be discouraged from conducting qualitative research simply because they do not possess certain technical skills or extensive training in sociology, anthropology or psychology. The proliferation of guidelines and checklists may be off-putting to people who want to undertake this sort of research, and they may also make it even more difficult for researchers to publish work in medical journals. Consequently, the very people who may be in a position to change medical practice may never read the results of important qualitative research.  (+info)

Computer analysis of qualitative data: the use of ethnograph. (2/338)

Ethnograph, a code and retrieve software program for computer analysis of qualitative data, was utilized to assist in analyzing the content of in-depth interviews and focus group data. This program requires basic computer hardware and is fairly easy to use. The main advantage of the program is easy access to data dealing with a particular issue and easy retrieval of text for analysis and illustration. However, to get the maximum benefit from this program, documents need to be structured In the format suitable for the software. Among the difficulties encountered were the absence of on-line documents dummy coding, lack of options in printing facility and the tendency for the program to hang whenever there was a printing error.  (+info)

Rapid ethnographic assessment of breastfeeding practices in periurban Mexico City. (3/338)

Before carrying out a breastfeeding promotion programme in a periurban area of Mexico City, we conducted a rapid ethnographic study to determine the factors associated with absence of exclusive breastfeeding. The responses to pilot interviews were used to develop a standardized questionnaire regarding reasons for infant feeding choice, sources of advice, and barriers to breastfeeding. We interviewed a random sample of 150 mothers with a child < 5 years of age; 136 (91%) of them had initiated breastfeeding; but only 2% exclusively breastfed up to 4 months. The mothers consistently stated that the child's nutrition, health, growth, and hygiene were the main reasons for the type of feeding selected; cost, comfort, and the husband's opinion were less important. Physicians were ranked as the most important source of advice. Reduction or cessation of breastfeeding occurred on the doctor's advice (68%); or when the mothers encountered local folk illnesses such as "coraje" (52%) or "susto" (54%), which are associated with anger or fright; or had "not enough milk" (62%) or "bad milk" (56%); or because of illness of the mother (56%) or child (43%). During childhood illnesses and conditions, breastfeeding was reduced and the use of supplementary foods was increased. This study emphasizes the importance of cultural values in infant feeding choices, defines specific barriers to breastfeeding, and provides a basis for interventions to promote exclusive breastfeeding in the study population.  (+info)

Fish and mammals in the economy of an ancient Peruvian kingdom. (4/338)

Fish and mammal bones from the coastal site of Cerro Azul, Peru shed light on economic specialization just before the Inca conquest of A. D. 1470. The site devoted itself to procuring anchovies and sardines in quantity for shipment to agricultural communities. These small fish were dried, stored, and eventually transported inland via caravans of pack llamas. Cerro Azul itself did not raise llamas but obtained charqui (or dried meat) as well as occasional whole adult animals from the caravans. Guinea pigs were locally raised. Some 20 species of larger fish were caught by using nets; the more prestigious varieties of these show up mainly in residential compounds occupied by elite families.  (+info)

Building momentum: an ethnographic study of inner-city redevelopment. (5/338)

OBJECTIVES: One factor contributing to the decay of inner-city areas, and to consequent excess mortality, is the massive loss of housing. This report studied the effects of a redevelopment project on social functioning in an inner-city community. METHODS: This ethnographic study included the following elements: a longitudinal study of 10 families living in renovated housing, repeated observations and photographing of the street scene, focus groups, and informal interviews with area residents. The project was located in the Bradhurst section of Harlem in New York City and was focused on a redevelopment effort sponsored by local congregations. RESULTS: Those who were able to move into newly renovated housing found that their living conditions were greatly improved. Neighborhood revitalization lagged behind the rehabilitation of individual apartment houses. This uneven redevelopment was a visual and sensory reminder of "what had been." Residents missed the warmth and social support that existed in Harlem before its decline. CONCLUSIONS: Rebuilding damaged housing contributes greatly to the well-being of inner-city residents. The current pace and scope of rebuilding are insufficient to restore lost vitality.  (+info)

Natural experimental models: the global search for biomedical paradigms among traditional, modernizing, and modern populations. (6/338)

During the past four decades, biomedical scientists have slowly begun to recognize the unique opportunities for studying biomedical processes, disease etiology, and mechanisms of pathogenesis in populations with unusual genetic structures, physiological characteristics, focal endemic disease, or special circumstances. Such populations greatly extend our research capabilities and provide a natural laboratory for studying relationships among biobehavioral, genetic, and ecological processes that are involved in the development of disease. The models presented illustrate three different types of natural experiments: those occurring in traditionally living, modernizing, and modern populations. The examples are drawn from current research that involves population mechanisms of adaptation among East African Turkana pastoralists; a search for etiology and mechanisms of pathogenesis of an emerging disease among the Yakut people of Siberia; and psychosocial stress, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease in women working outside the home in New York City and among subpopulations in Hawaii. The models in general, and the examples in specific, represent natural laboratories in which relatively small intrapopulation differences and large interpopulation differences can be used to evaluate health and disease outcomes.  (+info)

Household poisoning exposure among children of Mexican-born mothers: an ethnographic study. (7/338)

OBJECTIVE: To explore reasons for high rates of unintentional poisoning among Latino children under 5 years old. DESIGN: Ethnographic interviews were carried out using a sample of mothers identified via door-to-door canvassing in an area with documented high injury rates among Latino children. Interviews included many open-ended and follow-up questions to elicit a detailed family history and emphasized observation of conditions and behaviors in the homes. SETTING: Low-income neighborhoods of Southern California. SUBJECTS: Fifty mothers born in Mexico with children under 5 years old. RESULTS: Children were exposed to potential poisoning agents in more than 80% of homes. Contributory factors related to culture included favorable attitudes toward iron as a healthful substance; extensive use of products that lack child-resistant packaging, such as rubbing alcohol and medicines from Mexico; high prevalence of shared housing; limited familiarity with toxic household chemicals not widely used in Mexico; and inability to read warning labels in English. CONCLUSION: Current Poison Control Center outreach efforts should be expanded. Clinicians are uniquely positioned to advise parents about the safe use and storage of toxic substances, including widely used products lacking child-resistant packaging. Medicines should be labeled in Spanish for those who do not know English.  (+info)

Ethnographic interviews to elicit patients' reactions to an intelligent interactive telephone health behavior advisor system. (8/338)

Information technology is being used to collect data directly from patients and to provide educational information to them. Concern over patient reactions to this use of information technology is especially important in light of the debate over whether computers dehumanize patients. This study reports reactions that patient users expressed in ethnographic interviews about using a computer-based telecommunications system. The interviews were conducted as part of a larger evaluation of Telephone-Linked Care (TLC)-HealthCall, an intelligent interactive telephone advisor, that advised individuals about how to improve their health through changes in diet or exercise. Interview findings suggest that people formed personal relationships with the TLC system. These relationships ranged from feeling guilty about their diet or exercise behavior to feeling love for the voice. The findings raise system design and user interface issues as well as research and ethical questions.  (+info)

Development of a culture of evidence based medicine depends on a body of research that draws from both qualitative and quantitative approaches.1 Recent BMJ articles have usefully questioned a stark polarity between qualitative and quantitative research and helped to demystify qualitative approaches. 2 3 4 There has been little mention of ethnography, however, and little argument for its use in health research.. I have examined some of these omissions, giving a broad indication of the nature of ethnography and arguing for its greater use within health care. I have given examples of ethnographic studies to suggest some of the issues that ethnography can help to explore, together with a brief outline of limitations of the approach.. ...

A Project of the Center for Ethnography, University of California, Irvine While the design and conduct of ethnographic research in anthropology is still largely individualistic, especially in the way that research is presented in the academy, many projects depend on complex relationships of partnership and collaboration, at several sites, and not just those narrowly conceived as fieldwork. The binary here and there-ness of fieldwork is preserved in anthropology departments, despite the reality of fieldwork as movement in complex, unpredictable spatial and temporal frames. This is especially the case where ethnographers work at sites of knowledge production with others, who are patrons, partners,. In the absence of formal norms of method covering these de facto and intellectually substantive relations of partnership and collaboration in many contemporary projects of fieldwork, we would like to encourage, where feasible, events in the Center that would blur the boundaries between the field site ...
Ethnographic research is useful in recognizing ethnographic resources. Ethnographic resources are defined by the National Park Service as …a site, structure, object, landscape or natural resource assigned traditional legendary, religious, subsistence, or other significance in the cultural system of a group traditionally associated with it (DO-28: Appendix A, 181). Through ethnographic research the meaning of these resources with respect to community members can be interpreted. With the aid of communities traditionally associated or connected with the resources within and surrounding parks, the importance of the preservation of these resources can be communicated to visitors and employees of the National Parks. Communication established between the community, visitors and park employees help to better ensure the management of ethnographic resources. To learn more about the preservation of ethnographic resources, see El Santuario de Chimayo-Ethnographic Resource. ...

A typical ethnography attempts to be holistic[4][5] and typically follows an outline to include a brief history of the culture in question, an analysis of the physical geography or terrain inhabited by the people under study, including climate, and often including what biological anthropologists call habitat. Folk notions of botany and zoology are presented as ethnobotany and ethnozoology alongside references from the formal sciences. Material culture, technology, and means of subsistence are usually treated next, as they are typically bound up in physical geography and include descriptions of infrastructure. Kinship and social structure (including age grading, peer groups, gender, voluntary associations, clans, moieties, and so forth, if they exist) are typically included. Languages spoken, dialects, and the history of language change are another group of standard topics.[24] Practices of child rearing, acculturation, and emic views on personality and values usually follow after sections on ...
Ethnography, the study of culture, has its origins in anthropology, wherein the researcher observes, from an embedded position, over months or even years.
The authors experience in developing a manual based on ethnographic methods for collecting, analyzing and using information about the cultural context of diarrhea is presented. The goal of the process outlined in the manual is to recommend programmatic strategies and educational messages that are likely to be effective in achieving the adoption of appropriate diarrhea case management behaviors by mothers. The implications of manuals of this type for the role of anthropologists, and for social science capacity building in developing country programs are discussed. While recognizing that this approach risks limiting the anthropologists role to a technical one, the authors suggest that appropriate application of program specific manuals can encourage anthropological input into formulating program policies and strategies.. ...
This hospital ethnography focused on the relationship between culture and emergency physician habitus. The habitus of these physicians was defined as those routine, patterned forms of behaviors and practices performed by the physicians while in the emergency department and while interacting with the patient during the physician-patient interaction. Pierre Bourdieus practice theory was used to address how culture was related to the habitus of the emergency physician. The researcher found that culture was not only related to the habitus of these physicians, but it reproduced, and at times created, aspects of the habitus through the practices performed while in the emergency department and while interacting with patients.

Your reponse to this question will be most heavily weighted in the assessment ...
Learning, knowledge, research, insight: welcome to the world of UBC Library, the second-largest academic research library in Canada.
This article contributes to ongoing discussion of the Bourdieusian concept of cultural capital and current attempts to elaborate this concept and its derivatives. The paper identifies identity capital, the capacity to create a narrative of social and self-awareness by constructing a flexible sense of self. This concept explains findings from a longitudinal ethnography with nine children and young people over a 13-year period from pre-school to the age of 17. Analysis of the data shows that this particular capacity is developed through certain kinds of privileged discourses and the opportunities provided within socially advantaged schools and families. Two case studies are selected to reveal how identity capital interacts with other identifiable forms of capital that compound and entrench each other. The paper concludes by arguing that deficiencies in identity capital could be addressed within schooling in order to support the creation of this important resource.. ...
Background: This article explores how children use fantasy, play, and coping (imaginal coping) in order to handle chronic illness. Imaginal coping, as a theoretical construct, is defined as the use of imagination to deal with the hardships of illness. The overarching aim has been to investigate the various ways in which categories of staff members (doctors, nurses, play therapists, and hospital clowns) and parents support children in their coping. Focus has thus been on collaborative or interactive aspects of playful coping.. Method: A large proportion of the data collected consists of 93 h of video-recorded interactions between children, parents and staff. The collection of data involved fieldwork carried out with the use of a video ethnographic method, making it possible thereby to analyse and work with data in greater detail. For more than one year, five children with leukaemia were followed as each made their regular visits to a childrens cancer clinic in a childrens hospital in ...
Using the meta-ethnographic approach demands consideration of the suitability of the method and the rationale for using it. We believe it is important for the review question to drive the synthesis method and that meta-ethnography is probably best-suited to generating models or higher order theories of behaviour or experiences. The most important step in the process is formulating a focused question that will set the boundaries for the scope and depth of the synthesis.. We found having a multidisciplinary team useful, particularly in developing the focus for the synthesis, interpreting the steps of meta-ethnography, and in translating and interpreting meaning in the results of the synthesis. The members of the team had both clinical and social science backgrounds, which brought different perspectives to the review, ensured rigour and transparency in methods and helped the results of the review to be more relevant to planners developing treatment policies. One of the reviewers was an author of ...
H3.2: System-wide program/policy initiatives to address the needs of vulnerable first-time mothers (,25 years of age) and their children (e.g., BC Ministry of Healths new Nurse Family Partnership Initiative) are associated with changes in young parents knowledge, beliefs and practices, although these changes may differ depending on various factors, including: mothers age, cultural identity and geographic location.. The five-year study uses longitudinal ethnographic methods (fieldwork; interviews), complemented by policy analysis techniques, to capture and track over time the parenting experiences of a cohort of young people (ages 15-24 years). The study incorporates the perspectives of key disadvantaged subgroups (e.g., those who are socially-excluded, drug-using, and/or racialized). The study includes ethnographic fieldwork and interviews with 150 young mothers living in Prince George, Quesnel or Vancouver (British Columbia), as well as socially significant participants in young mothers ...
Nicholas Apoifis, Anarchy in Athens: An Ethnography of Militancy, Emotions and Violence (Manchester: Manchester University Press, 2017). In his Ph.D. thesis Anarchy in Athens: An Ethnography of Militancy, Emotions and Violence, the Australian sociologist Nicholas Apoifis has taken on one of the hottest topics in recent anarchist history, namely the anarchist movement of the Greek capital.. Apoifis mentions that he originally wanted to conduct research in two more Greek cities, but that because of the sheer scale of the movement in Athens, I limited my research to this explosive city (p. 11). As far as the international perception of contemporary Greek anarchism is concerned, this makes little difference, as it focuses almost exclusively on what is happening in Athens anyway - in particular, in the Exarcheia neighborhood, which features prominently in Apoifiss book.. In a sense, Anarchy in Athens turns three books into one: there is the academic discussion of social movement theory; there is ...

Then there were the posters who wrote in the traditions of Evolutionary Psychology, and pointed to studies correlating economic success, genetic fitness, and the heritability of cognitive abilities as measured by various intelligence tests. These people also didnt like Steven Jay Gould and tended to correlate the wealth and longevity of societies/individuals wit good genes, and economic success. These posters tended to have more in common with the Population Genetics folk, but I sense that they were in fact a third view.. Anyway, this set me to wondering what it would take to convince someone like the posters Razib, dad, or the others that Population Genetics should pay more attention to cultural anthropology? I am still convinced that their population models would be strengthened if they were to take into account the nature of inequality (ethnic, racial, class, gender) which does indeed structure who mates with who (a fact self-evident to any junior high school boy or girl). It could also ...

For scholars of African history, anthropology offers a number of valuable and invigorating methodological avenues, from engaging directly in ethnographic fieldwork to analyzing anthropological data compiled by others. Given the asymmetries of written documents and the biases of archival material for Africa, anthropological methods and sources offer a different type of access to those who, for various reasons, tend not to appear in other forms of documentary record. The materials of past ethnographic research-texts and material objects, produced and collected by anthropologists and their assistants as well as by missionaries, government officials, travelers, and others-constitute one of the largest categories of written source material. However, the contexts in which such research was conducted can present certain challenges when using these materials as sources. For example, the complex entanglements between colonial governance and the making of anthropological knowledge make it imperative for

In order to do this properly, it is necessary to abandon conventional national and regional classifications of research schools. The three Scandinavian countries, and Finland could also be included, have distinct academic histories, and sociocultural anthropology has slightly different priorities and identities in each country: Contemporary Swedish anthropology grew out of global explorations, European ethnology and more recent Anglo-American influences; Danish anthropology has a strong historical connection to ethnographic studies of Greenland and has been equally shaped by American and British anthropology; while Finnish anthropology has a dual, recent heritage in sociology and ethnology. The main current of Norwegian anthropology, by contrast, has since the late 1950s virtually been a branch of British social anthropology. Most Norwegian anthropologists can be considered matrilateral nephews and nieces of British social anthropologists anyway, with Fredrik Barth playing the part of the mother ...
This paper presents reflections on ethnographic research, which was undertaken in 2010 exploring the link between Facebook and the use of it by undergraduate students studying in Higher Education at one UK university. The focus of this paper is interrogating the use of practice-based methods within an ethnographic methodology. I present reflections on using design thinking, craft skills and card modeling to supported analyses of participants social interactions on the social media site, Facebook, in coming to know the digital space. Jungnickel and Hjorth (2014, 136) propose that ethnography and practice-based art research have a long tacit history and that the process of making and thinking through art is an integral part of doing research. Using the data collected during the ethnography from my time spent in the field. I take a reflexive view of my translation of the data into material form and discuss the analytical process I went through in coming to know Facebook as narrative ...

Design researchers in professional practice regularly find themselves applying anthropological principals and techniques. Whether they have formal training in anthropology or have picked up their knowledge of the field and the tools anthropologists use as needed for particular projects, design researchers will benefit from reviewing the material Denny and Sunderland have gathered and edited.. The timing for this book is good. As the editors state in their Introduction, Anthropology in business is a matrix of multiple endeavors that on the one hand has existed for a very long time and on the other is just coming into view.. Denny and Sunderland have organized the work of 65 authors with diverse backgrounds into 43 chapters and introduce each section of chapters themselves. Some authors are academics, but most seem to have some experience with applied research. Chapters that will be particularly interesting to design researcher readers include Design Ethnography, Public Policy and Public ...
This study shows that the cultural dispositions the adult refugee students bring to the classroom provide the primary basis for the way they approach their English learning, and thus influence their agency and identity as learners. The findings also suggest that the students are likely to engage in the desired learning tasks if their perceptions of teaching quality cohere with the actual teaching they are exposed to. Teachers are therefore suggested to adopt a hybridity of teaching approaches and methods in ways that bridge the gap between their own and their students perceptions and expectations. The implications drawn from the empirical results additionally suggest that if the aim of the migrant English program is to facilitate the integration of refugees into their multicultural society, then the pedagogy it embodied should incorporate a hybridity of simulation scenarios (native, non-native and coethnic), enabling them to critically examine the impact of different types of identity they ...

Mothers on the Move tells the story of Cameroonian migrants in Germany through the lives of women who navigate belonging-in Europe and in Africa-through birthing and caring for children. It explores the social strategies and community resources mothers mobilize when facing dilemmas engendered by migration. Cameroonian mothers sustain their goals of reproduction when they go abroad, although their international migration makes reproduction more difficult. As they say about Berlin, Its hard being a mother here. By reproducing, mothers generate belonging for themselves and their children. Migration complicates belonging, stretching some connections to the breaking point while facilitating new ones. Through vivid case studies based on interviews with and ethnographic fieldwork among ...

In another recent ethnographic study of graphic designers titled Routinized Labor in the Graphic Design Studio published by AnneMarie Dorland, on-site ethnographic research at a Canadian design and branding firm was conducted. Dorland addressed the extensive auditing and management practices that regulate opportunities for creativity in these settings.[56] Guy Julier expanded on this line of inquiry in his book Economies of Design when he stated that the two sides of design are commercial demands and creative autonomy, both of which are, part of the necessary, rational activities of its economic work.[57] In reality, there is less autonomy than one would think (or would be prescribed in a creative climate), and it is a given graphic design firms clearly articulated processes and procedures that will determine a designers success in that environment.[58] Both Dorland and Murray observed that when the managerially imposed constraint of limited time allotted to the generation of creative ...

BACKGROUND: Clinical, experimental, and ethnographic research suggests that cannabis may be used to help manage pain. Ethnographic research has revealed that some people are using cannabis to temper their illicit opioid use. We seek to learn if there is an association between cannabis use and the frequency of nonmedical opioid use among people who inject drugs (PWID). METHODS: PWID were recruited using targeted sampling methods in Los Angeles and San Francisco, California, 2011-2013. We limited analysis to people who used opioids in past 30 days (N=653).

SM: Welcome, Dr. Watkins. Rachel Watkins: Thank you.. SM: So, Dr. Watkins, how can we as anthropologists, start to trace the history of this concept? RW: Well, as a biological anthropologist Im connected personally to the discipline that is largely-or its noted as being-largely responsible for the concept, in that the scientists who ushered in biological anthropology as a profession, as well as a discipline, were largely anatomists and doctors who believed in this notion of essential difference between groups of people. So, in other words, the kind of surface level differences-skin color, hair texture, what have you-were attributed a level of significance that really kind of belies their biological power, in that people are not reducible to these traits that we think of as racial. They all reflect biological possibilities that we all have.. SM: Okay, and what was the time period, or the context, in which these ideas about fundamental human difference on the basis of appearance became popular? ...
Families of children with low incidence, severe disabilities have unique needs, which may not be revealed through traditional assessment. Qualitative studies, using multiple data sources allow professionals a more realistic view from families perspectives. Nine year old twins with Angelman syndrome and their families participated in this qualitative study. Information from previous ethnographic interviews of family members revealed three domains. These domains then framed additional data collection using results from a questionnaire, parent interview, and observations at home. Two overarching themes were identified: current differences between the twins and ways each encounters communication and learning. These data will be used to address goals and intervention. Results demonstrate how qualitative approaches allow identification of childrens preferences and familys priorities ...
In recent years there has been a lot of discussion about what constitutes a responsible scientist. High-profile examples of scientific misconduct, such as the case of Hwang Woo-suk and issues relating to the reproducibility and reliability of science,[2] have all led to increasing concern about trust in science. Similarly, the anthrax letters of 2001[3] elicited valuable concerns about bad eggs within the scientific community who could use their privileged positions to do harm. The response to these concerns has been manifold, and recent decades have seen an explosion of academic research, policy documents, codes of conduct and legislation surrounding this subject.[4] At the heart of this deluge of literature is an attempt to define the responsibilities of individual scientists and the scientific community to each other and to society at large. In effect, it grapples with two key questions: what does it mean to be a responsible scientist and what is responsible science?. Most approaches to ...
The discovery of an off-Broadway hit playing just under the proscenium golden arches of McDonalds is quite a bargain! A better deal you couldnt get anywhere.. Most often, a proscenium arch is the opening between the auditorium and stage, a place where auditorium and stage are divided architecturally and functionally. At McDonalds, the human comedy of symbolic actions and multiple truths was unfolding on both sides of the counter-top divide, and right before our very eyes.. Here, people from all races and nationalities were practicing and acting out what it means to be American.. I really needed all five senses just to begin to understand all the meanings that the actors were creating. All five senses - and intuition - to get the total gestalt of the scene.. Behind the counter, it seemed that hamburgers and fries came into spontaneous existence at the speed of the Big Bang - the Big Mac Big Bang Ill call it..
