    • Basic Income, Eco-logical Ethics, and Interdependent Well-Being

      Aiden Sisler (Adam Mickiewicz University, 2014-09-01)
      A Basic Income (universal basic income or citizen’s income) could contribute to the means for living a dignified ecologically- and socially-aligned life characterized by well-being, freedom, and equality. After laying out key definitions, I reflect on moral and ethical issues regarding Basic Income’s implementation, backed by supportive theory and evidence. These arguments organise around interdependence in eco-social systems and core requirements of ontogenesis as well as the intersection and intertwining of socio-cultural, political, and economic factors, known as socio-ecological determinants of global health and well-being. Following that, I briefly make the case for why intersectional and intersubjective aspects should be closely held in contextualized view of Basic Income’s democratised drafting and provision.

    • Becoming Azerbaijani: Uncertainty, Belonging and Getting By in a Post-Soviet Society

      Wistrand, Jennifer Solveig (Washington University Open Scholarship, 2011-08-15)
      The title of my dissertation is "Becoming Azerbaijani: Uncertainty, Belonging and Getting By in a Post-Soviet Society". It is based on twenty-two months of fieldwork I conducted in Azerbaijan (2006-2008), both in the capital city, Baku, and in the country's rural areas, following a research methodology that relied extensively on systematic participant observation (in Azerbaijani and Russian) in conjunction with formal in-depth interviews (in Azerbaijani, Russian and English). In my dissertation I argue that, within a short period of time, as a result of the collapse of the Soviet system, specifically the breakdown of the government-guaranteed safety net, and the disastrous war with Armenia over Karabakh (a region in western Azerbaijan), including the repercussions of the unresolved outcome of the conflict, Azerbaijanis day-to-day lives went from being comparatively stable and secure to highly uncertain, both emotionally and materially. To deal with this pervasive and ongoing uncertainty, Azerbaijanis have cultivated ways of relating to one another - or "strategies of belonging" - that allow them to perceive themselves as members of a society that will successfully recover from the devastating war and can establish a social order, within various urban, rural and refugee communities, that helps members lead reasonably stable and secure lives again - or "get by". During the 1990s, getting by was largely about basic economic survival. Now, in addition to surviving economically, it is also about maintaining the security and dignity of the country and the continuing efficacy of the strategies of belonging and getting by that the various communities' members employ, strategies which differ sharply from community to community.
    • Becoming Canadian: Folk Literary Innovation in the Memoirs of Yiddish-Speaking Immigrants to Canada

      Vardit Lightstone (The Association for Canadian Jewish Studies/York University Libraries, 2020-06-01)
      This article considers the ways Yiddish-speaking immigrants to Canada creatively adapted folklore that they learned in “the old home” in order to make it fit their new Canadian contexts, and in doing so created new hybrid folklore and identities. To do this, I discuss the autobiographical texts of three people who migrated between 1900 and 1930, J.J. Goodman’s Gezamelte Shriften (Collected Writings) (Winnipeg: 1919), Michael Usiskin’s Oksn un Motorn (Oxen and Tractors) (Toronto: 1945), and Falek Zolf ’s Oyf Fremder Erd (On Foreign Soil) (Winnipeg: 1945). I argue that these personal narratives offer important insights into how the first major wave of Eastern European Jewish immigrants to Canada formed and expressed Canadian-Eastern European Jewish culture.
    • Becoming society again : Reimagining new social contracts through Scandinavian creation theology

      Gerle, Elisabeth (Wiley-Blackwell, 2021)
      This article focuses on bodily care as the basis of economy. Drawing on Luther and Scandinavian Creation Theology, with an emphasis on shared situatedness and society, I discuss contemporary threats to welfare states. Conservative arguments in favor of family and small communities, combined with charity, provide a cultural/religious alibi for a global “neoliberalism,” where citizens are replaced by customers, and where power and resources from professions are transferred to controllers, due to the logic of NPM. In a critical discussion with Hannah Arendt, I argue that we need a politics that reinforce and develop new social contracts, national as well as international, based on an inclusive demos. A pre-political Lutheran ethos can give inspiration to act for the common good, transcending any homogenous ethnos. The local and national are crucial for sustaining body and mind. However, this is increasingly combined with global and planetary entanglements. Interdependency reveals itself as planetary, where disappearing rain forests, melting icebergs, and the ongoing extinction of species are threats to our shared future. Therefore, rather than emphasizing the individual as a consumer on a global market with neutral administrators administering control and obedience, new kinds of contracts are needed. Core values of the pre-political, such as care for bodily life and minds, may, in collaboration with national and international political assemblies, develop a planetary consciousness able to act for the common good, for a global demos with structures of solidarity.
    • Behavioral assessment of emotion discrimination, emotion regulation, and cognitive control in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood

      Tottenham, Nim; Hare, Todd A; Casey, B J (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2011)
      Emotion discrimination, emotion regulation, and cognitive control are three related, yet separable processes that emerge over the course of development. The current study tested 100 children, adolescents, and adults on an Emotional Go/Nogo task, illustrating the ability of this paradigm to identify the unique developmental patterns for each of these three processes in the context of both positive (happy) and negative emotions (fear, sad, and anger), across three different age groups. Consistent with previous literature, our findings show that emotion discrimination and regulatory abilities (both cognitive control and emotion regulation) improve steadily for each age group, with each age group showing unique patterns of performance. The findings suggest that emotion regulation is constructed from basic cognition control and emotion discrimination skills. The patterns of behavior from the Emotional Go/Nogo task provide normative benchmark data across a wide range of emotions that can be used for future behavioral and neuroimaging studies that examine the developmental construction of emotion regulatory processes.

    • Being Open, Being Faithful: The Journey of Interreligious Dialogue

      Pratt, George Douglas (WCC Publications, 2014)
      What does Christian identity mean in the face of religious pluralism? In some ways, the frontier of global Christianity lies not in repairing its past divisions so much as bravely facing its future in a world of many other faiths and conflicting convictions. Being Open, Being Faithful is a brief history, astute analysis, and trustworthy guide for Christian encounters in this pluralistic environment. A central argument of this perceptive book is that interreligious dialogue has moved so far as to fundamentally change the attitudes and openness of world religious traditions to each other, promising a future more open and less hostile than one might otherwise think. The book presents and reflects on the recent history of interreligious encounter and dialogue, and it traces the manifold difficulties involved, especially as they are experienced in Roman Catholic and World Council of Churches' engagements with other faiths. Yet, it goes even further: along with the history of such encounters, Being Open, Being Faithful examines the issue of Christian discipleship in the context of interfaith engagement, the operative models, the thorny issue of core theological commitments, and what might be the shape of Christian identity in light of such encounters.
    • Believing and belonging: the everyday lives of Muslim youth in Canada

      Munawar, Nabila Fatima (2017-05)
      The ongoing debate around radicalisation, citizenship, refugees, and religious accommodation have posed serious questions about the nature of belonging and the loyalty of Muslim youth within Canada. Adding to that, foiled terrorist incidents by young men with Muslim backgrounds in Canada have shone the spotlight squarely on young Muslims. As such, the importance of examining the way that issues/debates around immigration, security, religion, race and belonging are impacting on the lives of Muslim youth has grown. 
 
 Mainstream Canadian public opinion has grown increasingly suspicious, hostile and fearful of young Muslims. Perceptions of young Muslims operate in a highly racialised context as Islamophobia grows not only in mainstream Canadian society but also within the Muslim community itself. Inclusions and exclusions have begun to develop around questions of ethnicity and race, refugees, migrants and ‘homegrown’ Canadian Muslims, and the fear of the ‘other’. 
 
 Within this climate, young Muslims continue to live their everyday lives. This thesis explores the lives of Muslim youth and the way they articulate and perform their ideas around belonging and ‘believing’, as Muslims, as they permeate the minutiae of everyday life in Canada. From the mall to the mosque, from the club to the football pitch – these everyday occurrences problematise common-sense understandings of Muslim youth in Canada. 
 
 In 2011-2013, I conducted 18 months of ethnographic fieldwork in youth clubs, malls, mosques, cafes and the spaces young Muslims frequent in Toronto, Hamilton, Haltom, and other areas in Southern Ontario. My participants were youth who identified as Muslim, who were both male and female, and who came from diverse backgrounds, histories, diasporic communities, ethnicities, class positioning, and levels of ‘religiosity’. Through this, I tell a story of the nature of everyday life for Muslim youth, and the ways in which they negotiate their identities and sense of belonging in Canada. I argue that this intersectional approach is necessary in order to understand how race, class, faith, gender and age intersect and overlap on an everyday level to illustrate what being young and Muslim looks and feels like in Canada. Religion is often seen as a defining feature of Muslim youths’ lives; however, in this thesis I illustrate that young Muslims’ lives can be complex, messy and fluid where different parts of their identities become important according to the context in which they find themselves at different moments. Therefore, central to this work are ideas of belonging, home and faithfulness. In addition, this thesis considers the role of spirituality in Muslim youths’ lives and how it can imbue the way they see themselves, the worlds in which they live, and their ideas of home.
    • Belleza, naturaleza y artificio. Las utopías del cuerpo post-natural

      RUSSO maria teresa, (2018)
      The article analyzes the consequences of the artificialisation of the body, when one pursues the absolute beauty or the perfect health, in the attempt to overcome the limits of human nature. On the one hand, the body gradually loses its symbolic and sacral character turning into an object of consumption and technical manipulation. On the other hand, life itself becomes a perennial risk, without the possibility of a balanced relationship with itself, with others and with the world. Only the ability to accept the unexpected and uncontrollable can allow us to reconcile the legitimate pursuit of beauty and health with the inevitable imperfection that always accompanies the human.
