    • Wandering Jews: Global Jewish Migration

      Gold, Steven J. (Purdue University, 2020-12-01)
      Despite the importance of historical and contemporary migration to the American Jewish community, popular awareness of the diversity and complexity of the American Jewish migration legacy is limited and largely focused upon Yiddish-speaking Jews who left the Pale of Settlement in Eastern Europe between 1880 and 1920 to settle in eastern and midwestern cities. Wandering Jews provides readers with a broader understanding of the Jewish experience of migration in the United States and elsewhere. It describes the record of a wide variety of Jewish migrant groups, including those encountering different locations of settlement, historical periods, and facets of the migration experience. While migrants who left the Pale of Settlement in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries are discussed, the volume’s authors also explore less well-studied topics. These include the fate of contemporary Jewish academics who seek to build communities in midwestern and western college towns; the adaptation experience of recent Jewish migrants from Latin America, Israel, and the former Soviet Union; the adjustment of Iranian Jews; the experience of contemporary Jewish migrants in France and Belgium; the return of Israelis living abroad; and a number of other topics. Interdisciplinary, the volume draws upon history, sociology, geography, and other fields. Written in a lively and accessible style,Wandering Jews will appeal to a wide range of readers, including students and scholars in Jewish studies, international migration, history, ethnic studies, and religious studies, as well as general-interest readers.

    • “We/Us” vs. “Them/Others” ; The case of the “Front National” (FN) and the “Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs” (FPÖ)

      Association belge francophone de science politique (ABSP) [sponsor]; Debras, François (2018-07-25)
      In recent years, the “Front National” (FN) in France has claimed to be the “defender of the people” and “guarantor of their interests”. In 2017, the campaign slogan of Marine Le Pen, party leader and candidate in the presidential election, was “in the name of the people”. In Austria, the “Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs” (FPÖ) stood as the “voice of the oppressed majority”. The party is demanding “a direct democracy in order to let the people speak”. These elements lead us to question the notion of “the people”. How should we define “the people”? What reality does it refer to? What are the underlying political and ideological issues? Firstly, to answer this question, I aim to clarify the term “the people” in populist rhetoric. The FN and the FPÖ are often described as “far-right parties”. However, many scholars also refer to them as “populist parties”. These terms clearly need explaining. Secondly, this work will analyse the political discourse of the FN and the FPÖ. The focus will be on the political programmes and oral communication coming from their principal representatives. This analysis is discursive. It isn’t an examination of the work performed by party supporters or members (parliamentary work, action in local authorities, etc.). Apparently, the rhetoric from both parties is structured around two dichotomies: 1) the removal of social boundaries in favour of a people/elite opposition; 2) the affirmation of cultural boundaries in favour of an opposition between natives to a country and foreigners. I will explain why these notions of social and cultural boundaries have a prominent place in rhetoric in line with populist theory. The desire to suppress social boundaries, allows us to identity a first issue: sovereignty. The affirmation of cultural boundaries illustrates a second issue: unity. Finally, a third issue is transmitted through the notion of sovereignty and unity: identity. To conclude, I will return to the classification of the “Front National” and the “Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs” as “right-wing-populist” parties. I will end by answering the question: “who are ‘the people’”? This will explain why populist rhetoric responds to a feeling of unease within society and, more generally, within Western democracies.
    • Weber, Max (1864–1920)

      Turner, Stephen (Digital Commons @ University of South Florida, 2015-01-01)
      Max Weber was one of the great figures in the history of social science, and is now recognized as a political philosopher. His most famous work, The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, led to a larger life-long comparative project on the relation between capitalist development and religiously conditioned economic ethics. Weber also attempted to define the relations between social science and normative sciences in accordance with the fact value distinction, and to draw out the implications of the nonrationality of value choice for social science, which works with value-related descriptions, and for politics, which involves competing values.
    • Welfare State Supporter and Civil Society Activist: Church of Sweden in the “Refugee Crisis” 2015

      Linde, Stig; Ideström, Jonas (Cogitatio, 2019-06-24)
      2015 was a year of an unprecedented migration from the Middle East to Europe. Sweden received almost 163,000 asylum applications. The civil society, including the former state church, took a notable responsibility. In a situation where the welfare systems are increasingly strained, and both the welfare state and the majority church are re-regulated, we ask: how does this play out in local contexts? This article reports from a theological action research project within a local parish in the Church of Sweden. The Lutheran church has from year 2000 changed its role to an independent faith denomination. The study describes the situation when the local authority and the parish together run temporary accommodation for young asylum seekers. For the local authority the choice of the church as a collaborator was a strategic choice. For the local parish this occasion verified the mission of the church. Confirming its former role as carrier of societal beliefs and values the Church of Sweden supports the welfare state. At the same time, the church explores a new role as a faith denomination and part of the civil society.

    • “Were You a Monster Today?” Making Assessments with Families: Thoughts and Practices

      Silvio Premoli; Andrea Prandin (University of Bologna, 2019-12-01)
      Assessing family care work is an extremely complex task, full of risks (because it concerns people’s life). It requires sensitivity, great self-awareness and awareness of one's own prejudices and of one’s own idea of family. In order to make an assessment professionals must have a curious attitude, capable of constantly seeking connections between interacting subjects, and these subjects include the observer him/herself, his/her thoughts and epistemology. This paper presents the reflections emerging from a high level inservice training course aimed at care and education professionals, based on narrative and reflective methodologies.
    • Werte entfalten-Gesellschaft gestalten : Festschrift für Manfred Spieker zum 70. Geburtstag /

      Spieker, Manfred.; Pulte, Matthias.; Klekamp, Mareike.
      Verfassungsrechtliche Grundorientierungen und kirchenrechtliche Verortungen, spezifisch sozialethische Fragen zu Gesellschaft, Partnerschaft, Ehe, Familie und Wirtschaft und religionspädagogische Aspekte der Wertebildung in der und für die Gesellschaft. Werte entfalten – Gesellschaft gestalten. Unter diesem Motto versammeln sich 17 namhafte Autoren mit Beiträgen zu hochaktuellen und gesellschaftlich brisanten Themen. Zudem wird der Horizont über die spezifisch deutschen Verhältnisse geweitet. Die Beiträge geben aktuelle Orientierungen zu Fragen, die in der Gesellschaft des beginnenden 21. Jahrhunderts oft kontrovers diskutiert werden. Bei aller Verschiedenheit verbindet die Autoren und ihre Beiträge ein gemeinsames naturrechtliches und ordnungsethisches Fundament. Dass dies auch heute, trotz manch gegenteiliger Überzeugung, nicht obsolet geworden, sondern geeignet ist, auf konkrete Fragen ebensolche Antworten zu liefern, zeigt der vorliegende Band.

    • ‘We’re so lucky’ : meeting challenges to deliver benefits to children in immigration detention

      Every, Danielle.; Thompson, Kirrilly.; Rainbird, Sophia.; Whetton, Steve.; Procter, Nicholas G.; Abdul-Halim, Suraya.; Sebben, Bianca. (Springer Netherlands : Springer,, 2014)
      Under pressure from crowded immigration detention centres and an election commitment to remove children from detention, in 2010 the Australian government opened a low security immigration detention facility for families and children in the Adelaide Hills. Children from this alternative place of detention (APOD) attend nine local schools. However, many local residents feared their enrolment would create conflict, reduce educational outcomes for local students, and overburden teachers and school resources. To answer these concerns we conducted an ethnography of the schools and interviewed school teachers, principals, parents, the education managers in the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) and the Department of Education and Children’s Services (DECS). This paper reports our findings on the impacts of the new arrivals on school finances, teacher time and resources, the local children, and the broader Hills community. As did previous quantitative studies, we found no negative effects. Rather, the new arrivals created a newly enriched learning environment and social experiences. The schools also played an integral role in changing the initially hostile community attitudes towards asylum seekers. Our qualitative research approach allowed us to explore factors that created this outcome. We found that the absence of negative impacts was the result of the funding for specialised support staff, the social justice orientation of the school’s leaders and staff, and a school-wide commitment to values of inclusivity and diversity. This research provides further empirical evidence on the impacts of immigration on education, increases our understanding of the factors that mediate these impacts, and provides a useful case study for schools that teach asylum seeker children.
