      WKU Archives (TopSCHOLAR®, 2016-01-01)
      Photographs and negatives taken by Jim Burton documenting life in western Kentucky primarily between the years 1975 and 1980. Venues include Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green, Owensboro, Madisonville, Cumberland County and Scott County. Band Formations - Burton was hired by WKU band director to photograph half time performances. It was a freelance job paying $250 per winter semester which allowed him to pay his car insurance. Bobby Sandige - Bobby was from Burton's hometown of Madisonville and was married in college. Besides being a full-time student, he worked full-time at an underground coal mine. Burton did a feature story on Bobby and his wife which was published by the Courier-Journal. Cecelia Memorial Presbyterian Church - This was a predominantly senior adult African American church within walking distance of WKU. While Burton was a student, Dr. William Lane a religion professor became the interim pastor and a host of students flocked there. Lane, now deceased, was a renowned theologian and author of several major commentaries. Coil Wilkerson, the Hermit - Wilkerson lived in Hopkins County and was widely known as the Hermit. He lived alone and had little interaction with others. He became a photo project during Burton's first photography course taught by Roger Loewen. Dant Family Farm - Burton did a long term project on the Dant family of Daviess County. Americans were realizing the fact of mobility as children were moving away from their nuclear families. But the Dants stayed together because of the land and the jobs created from farming. Father and son worked together every day. Female Little Leaguer - Burton did a story on Jenny Mason who was probably the first to try out for a Little League team in Owensboro. God's Land - This was a commune in Allen County that Burton happened upon while driving around. There was never a story written and the photos were not published. Gospel Assembly - This was a story from Daviess County of a small holiness church that purchased an abandoned school and built apartments for church members. In its own way, it was much like a commune too. Horse Trainer - You will see images of a man who owned and trained horses to compete in harness racing in Henderson, Kentucky. He typically owned one horse at a time. Leon Gregorian - Gregorian was the orchestra conductor at WKU and in Owensboro. He gave Burton full access, even during performances. Gregorian is now at Michigan State University. [2016] Livestock Auction - You will see coverage from a livestock auction house outside Owensboro. Main Street, Bowling Green - A senior photojournalism project. Pea Ridge Poet - When able, Burton made trips to Pea Ridge in Cumberland County to photograph the people. One subject was Fair Coop Neathery, whom he labeled the Pea Ridge Poet in an AP story. She was virtually illiterate, yet composed some gut wrenching poems about her life. Her husband's name was Sam. Other subjects included a family of chair makers. Ronald Reagan - The future president visited WKU to champion free enterprise. He was not officially a presidential candidate at the time of his visit. Sister Annie - This was a long-term project on Sister Annie from Mount Saint Joseph in West Louisville, which is outside Owensboro. She was the servant who served those who had served. The story ran on Christmas Day 1979 in the Owensboro Messenger Inquirer. Terry Leigh - This gentleman was a cerebral palsy patient at the Wendell Foster Home in Owensboro.

    • Um olhar sobre o Programa de Saúde da Família: a perspectiva ecológica na psicologia do desenvolvimento segundo Bronfenbrenner e o modelo da vigilância da saúde The Family Health Program: an echological approach in the developmental psychology and a health care model

      Anamélia Lins e Silva Franco; Ana Cecília de Sousa Bastos (Universidade Estadual de Maringá, 2002-12-01)
      A atividade no Programa de Saúde da Família (PSF/MS) tem sido motivo para diversos desafios. Entre as exigências reconhece-se a necessidade de elaborar proposições teóricas que orientem a reflexão e a prática. Apresenta-se uma proposta de articulação da abordagem ecológica do desenvolvimento humano elaborada por Bronfenbrenner e com o modelo de vigilância da saúde, buscando-se elaborar uma ferramenta para o Programa de Saúde da Família. Para tal, são apresentadas as bases teóricas e exemplificados os conceitos a partir de relatos de usuários e profissionais dos serviços de saúde. Observa-se que um fator de aproximação nessas três proposições é a presença, em diferentes níveis, de uma compreensão ecológica. A família tem papel fundamental para as três abordagens, e este papel é complementar, sendo ela informante, objeto de cuidados e constituidora-cuidadora de si.<br>The activities of the Family Health Program have posed many challenges. One of these challenges is exemplified in a need for developing theoretical propositions that guide the praxis of family health and foster analysis of its practices. The Bronfenbrenner ecological approach of human development and the health care model are presented as viable theoretical tools for the Family Health Program. Examples extracted from reports of users and professionals of health services are used to illustrate relevant constructs. Different levels of ecological comprehension can be identified in these examples in which the family occupies a fundamental role on the three approaches and complemented it as informant, object of care and of self-care.
    • Um pacto pela terra : crise ecológica e novos paradigmas necessários à humanidade, a partir da teologia de Jürgen Moltmann

      Leomar Antônio Brustolin; Renato Ferreira Machado (Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul, 2008-12-19)
      Dissertação apresentada ao Mestrado em Teologia sobre as raízes teológicas da crise ambiental e a necessidade de renovação de paradigmas pra seu entendimento, a partir do pensamento de Jürgen Moltmann. Caracteriza-se a modernidade como tempo do rompimento entre o ser humano e a natureza. Analisa-se os valores e paradigmas de plenitude da modernidade e suas conseqüências para o planeta. Critica-se os modelos de pessoa, ciência e sociedade desenvolvidos a partir da modernidade ocidental européia. Busca-se um resgate da tradição sabática judaico-cristã como possibilidade para as relações planetárias. Retoma-se a imagem trinitária do Deus Criador como imagem para o ser humano. Propõe-se a superação do individualismo por uma identidade humana relacional e a superação da ciência instrumental pelo saber participativo. Afirma-se a sociedade do amor ao inimigo como possibilidade para uma sociedade em pacto
    • Um pacto pela terra: a crise ecológica na agenda da Teologia

      Brustolin, Leomar Antônio; Machado, Renato Ferreira (Editora da Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul (EDIPUCRS), 2008-01-01)
      O artigo reflete sobre a relação entre Teologia e Ecologia procurando interpretar as questões da crise que incide na relação do trinômio pssoa-ambiente-sagrado. Propõe-se uma nova postura do ser humano para com a natureza, a partir da tradição judaico-cristã, na qual a preservação e o cuidado da criação dependem da visão kairológica do tempo e noção sabática do repouso. Enfatiza o papel dos cristãos na tarefa de reconciliar o ser humano com o mundo criado

    • Uma escuta ética de psicologia ambiental Ethical listening of environmental psychology

      José Célio Freire; Emanuel Meireles Vieira (Associação Brasileira de Psicologia Social, 2006-08-01)
      O artigo propõe uma nova abordagem da dimensão ética da Psicologia Ambiental e da educação ambiental, a partir da ética da alteridade radical de Emmanuel Lévinas. Inicia com uma síntese das várias perspectivas da Psicologia Ambiental e da Ética Ambiental para, em seguida, tratar de conceitos centrais da Psicologia Ambiental - apropriação do espaço, identidade de lugar e pertencimento - à luz de uma ética radicalizada.<br>The article proposes a new approach of the ethical dimension of the Environmental Psychology and the environmental education, from Emmanuel Levinas's ethics of radical alterity. It begins with a synthesis of the many perspectives of environmental psychology and the environmental ethics in order to, after that, approach central concepts of the environmental psychology - space appropriation, place identity, and belonging - based on a radicalized ethics.
    • Umwelt und Entwicklung

      Stückelberger, Christoph (W. Kohlhammer, 2006)
      "Wie lassen sich Entwicklung und Umweltbewahrung miteinander vereinbaren? Wo liegt das richtige Maß zwischen einem Zuviel an Eingriffen und einem Zuwenig an Gestaltung, zwischen einem lebenszerstörenden Fortschrittsoptimismus und einem lebensfeindlichen Ökofundamentalismus? Diese Untersuchung will das Spezifische theologischer Umweltethik fruchtbar machen und zugleich eine gemeinsame Wertbasis über weltanschauliche Unterschiede hinweg erarbeiten. Zentraler Leitwert ist dabei das Maß, welcher naturwissenschaftlich, historisch und in aktuellen ethischen Konzepten untersucht wird. Der Band richtet sich an alle, die in Theologie, Ethik, Naturwissenschaften, Ökonomie oder praktisch in Kirche, Politik, Wirtschaft, Entwicklungszusammenarbeit oder Umweltaktionen nach ethischen Kriterien für verantwortliches globales Handeln suchen."
    • Umwelt und Entwicklung : eine sozialethische Orientierung

    • "Umweltgerechtigkeit": das Umweltgerechte und die soziale Gerechtigkeit: Dimensionen eines gesellschaftlichen Spannungsfeldes; Überlegungen zu einem soziologischen Begriff von Umweltgerechtigkeit

      Rehberg, Karl-Siegbert; Deutsche Gesellschaft für Soziologie (DGS); Elkins, Stephan (Campus Verl.DEUFrankfurt am Main, 2010-10-01)
      "Anknüpfend an den US-amerikanischen Diskurs um 'Environmental Justice' scheint sich auch in der deutschen Rezeption unter dem Begriff der 'Umweltgerechtigkeit' ein Fokus auf Fragen der sozialen (Ungleich-)Verteilung von 'environmental bads' zu verfestigen. Zweifellos sind mit dieser Perspektive soziologisch interessante Fragen verbunden. Die weitläufige Resonanz dieser Lesart von 'Umweltgerechtigkeit' mag aber auch einen Grund in dem politischen Appeal haben, der in der Verbindung von Umwelt- und Gerechtigkeitsfragen angelegt ist. Die Argumente für Umweltschutz erfahren eine gewichtige Verstärkung, wenn Umweltschutz als Gebot sozialer Gerechtigkeit eine weitere Begründung finden kann. Die Zentrierung des Begriffs der Umweltgerechtigkeit auf Fragen der sozialen (Ungleich-)Verteilung von 'environmental bads' birgt allerdings auch ein Risiko. Es kann leicht übersehen werden, dass wir uns im Falle von Umweltschutz und sozialer Gerechtigkeit jeweils auf unterschiedliche Wertgesichtspunkte beziehen, die keineswegs harmonieren müssen. Dass hier ein potentielles Spannungsverhältnis angelegt ist, wird deutlich, wenn man beispielsweise den Komplementärfall - die mögliche soziale (Ungleich-)Verteilung von Folgen der Sicherung von 'environmental goods' - einer genaueren Betrachtung unterzieht. Wie im Falle der klassischen Environmental-Justice-Problematik, sehen sich auch hier - obgleich anders gelagerte - Geltungsansprüche bedroht; ein Umstand, der gleichermaßen fundamentale Gerechtigkeitsfragen aufwerfen kann. Als ein Beitrag zur Klärung des Begriffs 'Umweltgerechtigkeit' - auch mit Blick auf mögliche Schlussfolgerungen für soziologische Forschung - soll folgender Vorschlag zur Diskussion gestellt werden: In der gesellschaftlichen Realität sind Umweltfragen in vielfältiger Weise mit Fragen sozialer Gerechtigkeit verschränkt. Aufgabe einer an Fragen der 'Umweltgerechtigkeit' interessierten Soziologie wäre es, das Verhältnis von Fragen des 'Umweltgerechten' - als 'der Umwelt angemessen' - und Fragen sozialer Gerechtigkeit systematisch aufzuklären. Umweltbelastungen als Quelle sozialer Ungleichheit ist eine Seite der Problematik. Fragen nach sozialer Ungleichheit als Quelle von Umweltbelastungen oder als Quelle der Obstruktion von Umweltpolitik, Fragen nach der Funktionalität von sozialer Sicherung für Umweltpolitik und damit nach dem Zusammenhang zwischen Sozialstaat und der Kapazität für Umweltschutz sind andere Seiten - und es gibt deren mehr. Von einer an Umweltgerechtigkeit als einer an diesem Verhältnis interessierten soziologischen Forschungsperspektive sind Erkenntnisse von großer praktischer Relevanz zu erwarten - gerade mit Blick auf mögliche Spannungen zwischen dem Umweltgerechten und dem sozial Gerechten."
