Whiteness,种族主义和权力

下面是一个典型的例子,说明白人如何锻炼和维护种族主义。Kerri-Anne Kennerly flies into a rage about Saturday's protests,在土著人的带领下,seeking to change the date of Australia Day and establish systemic reform that includes a Voice to Parliament and Makarrata (treaty).Kennerly taps the table angrily,“他们中有人去过孩子们的内陆吗?babies,5岁的孩子被强奸了。他们的母亲被强奸了。他们的姐妹正在被强奸。They get no education.What have you done?芝宝。

在这里,肯尼利提出了同样的斯特拉曼论据,即自殖民地化以来,政治化强奸和虐待儿童被用来剥夺土著人民的权利。她可能指的是北领地的干预,where the army went into remote regions to justify removals of Aboriginal children.The Intervention was NOT based on evidence – that's already been proven.It has been catastrophic for communities.Continue readingWhiteness,种族主义和权力

电影评论

Let me tell you about塞尔玛,screening at the Scandinavian Film Festival.A young woman,乳头状瘤,在这个国家领导了一个受庇护和保守的基督教教育。她上大学时从未真正参加过,不含酒精和毒品,没有约会经验。While she has a strong bond with her parents,especially her dad – with whom she shares all her deepest thoughts – she is very lonely in her new environment.That is until she meets the vivacious Anja.

事实证明,Thelma starts to be attracted to Anja,她很快就和男朋友分手了。It seems Anja begins to fall in love with Thelma too.塞尔玛挣扎着自我厌恶,试图否认自己的性取向,同时开始出现莫名其妙的癫痫发作,困扰着医生。大约在这个时候,我在想:如果我不得不看另一个“内化的恐同症”恐怖片(哦,忘了提它被提升为恐怖分子了,我要把爆米花扔到屏幕上。(除非不是真的有人必须清理干净)但这部电影的发展方向出乎意料。Continue reading电影评论

如何利用行为洞察力增加项目的自愿参与

Reducing reoffending is a state priority in New South Wales.新的量刑改革将增加对行为改变计划或其他支持服务的推荐,以帮助那些有再次感染风险的人。Yet non-mandatory programs can often have low participation rates,尤其是当程序是新的时。

We set out to better understand the social context affecting voluntary participation in programs for people at-risk of reoffending.以下是我们如何利用行为科学来为弱势群体提供更好的服务。

将行为洞察应用于紧急情况下的决策

Flood-related fatalities have been an ongoing problem in Australia since the early 1900s.洪水中的死亡仅次于自然灾害中的热浪。Approximately 159 people died from flooding in Australia during the last 15 years,with half (53%) due to driving through floodwater.新南威尔士州together with QLD,占洪水死亡的74%。Rural and regional areas in NSW are especially at-risk.

穿越洪水是一个紧迫的问题,一直以来都是一种难以改变的问题行为。

The following reflects how the Behavioural Insights Unit (BIU) worked through this behavioural issue,头脑风暴问题,在最近与新南威尔士州紧急服务中心(NSW SES)的一次大师班上。Continue reading将行为洞察应用于紧急情况下的决策

警察残暴对待土著年轻女孩

Police brutality in Glen Innes,新南威尔士州,反对一群年轻的土著女孩。你可以听到其中一个女孩说她会遵守警察的规定,但她想打电话给她父母,因为他们还不到16岁。警察说不行。似乎是他的搭档,一个女人的画外音,告诉女孩们要遵守:“不要让自己更糟。”警察说:“对自己来说已经更糟了。”Continue reading警察残暴对待土著年轻女孩

行为科学教育与职业培训

一个拿着手机的女商人的画像。课文上写着:这是你徒弟本周学习的内容

你有没有想过为什么人们的行为会出人意料?经常违背自己的利益?这是因为我们的许多社会机构,including the law,education and economy are built around rules that don't always take into account people's social context and their motivations when making decisions.西方社会的惯例是,金融激励和惩罚性措施(如罚款)可以激励人们做正确的事情。Behavioural science research shows this is not always true.事实上,虽然金钱和制裁在某些情况下对某些群体起作用,most behaviours are not able to be easily changed through cash and penalties.(有时会适得其反!)

行为科学是行为经济学的应用,心理学,anthropology,my188bet旨在改善行为结果的社会学和其他社会科学。行为学洞察力特别是应用这门科学来提高决策的有效性,公共服务和政策。这是一个关于教育和职业培训中行为洞察力的案例研究。

Using fieldwork research and randomised control trials,the行为洞察股(BIU)测试低成本行为科学对影响社会不同群体的问题的变化。

例如,we know that 48% of apprentices in New South Wales cancel their contracts within the first year,在两年内,77%将取消。这对这些学生来说是巨大的个人成本,这也意味着仅在取消订单的情况下,国家经济就损失了9100万美元,and upwards of $348 million in related revenue.比奥的研究显示,取消雇佣合同的学徒之所以这样做,是因为他们经常觉得自己处于艰难的工作环境中,工资很低(从事体力劳动,重复性任务和长时间工作)对他们在工作中的进展没有多少指导。Continue reading行为科学教育与职业培训

泰坦对话

我参加了与梅根·戴维斯教授和前高等法院法官迈克尔·柯比的泰坦对话。由新南威尔士大学土著副校长主持。“两位杰出人权捍卫者就执行联合国人权任务进行对话。”An excellent event looking at the work of the United Nations as well as the practicalities (terrible travel conditions for all volunteers,这尤其限制了发展中国家的成员)。

还有人讨论为什么澳大利亚没有权利法案(糟糕)。加上澳大利亚拒绝乌鲁鲁声明的原因,the outcome of consultation led by,和,Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people around Australia,建议议会发言。大多数拥有土著人口的国家都有这种机制的版本,以确保土著人民在通过法律之前能够对法律发表评论。

my188betSociology of Rembrandt

这是我对展览的社会学思考,Rembrandt and the Dutch Golden Age.展览会上只有一位女艺术家,荷兰白人艺术家瑞秋·鲁伊斯。There were no people of colour,except in one landscape depicting slavery of African people,在庆祝阿姆斯特丹发展的作品中。Other than this,没有提到殖民主义,even though there was a giant ship in the exhibition and a landscape of Brazil referencing an "outpost."

有一幅勃艮第人的画,一个起源于斯里兰卡和欧洲的族群,尤其是布特加和荷兰人,但是这次展览没有提到阶级或种族。伯格尔一词源于荷兰语中的“公民”一词。或“城镇居民”,与法语单词“资产阶级”混合which refers to the upper class.勃艮第人实际上是向上流动的中产阶级,他们以商人的身份生活得很好,委托绘画来反映他们微薄的财富。While most were of mixed racial background,they are painted as White.

Finally,in one of the photos you see Rembrandt's painting "Bust of a Man in Oriental Dress,"描绘了一个戴着头巾的白人——一个白人上流社会挪用他人文化和宗教的例子,but the exhibition explains this as "exotic looking garb."The exhibition is excellent,但像许多人一样,它粉饰历史,复制种族,gender and various inequalities by papering over relations of power in art.

有色人种的婴儿名字在文化上如何被使用

Popular White-dominated website,Popsugar发表了一篇文章,称非盎格鲁人的名字“古怪”。This is one example among many where Anglo-Saxon languages and Western cultures are seen as the universal norm used to judge all other cultures (in my188betsociology,这就是所谓的“种族中心主义”)。"By removing the racial and sociocultural context of these names,把他们放在名单上,而且,给它们贴上“古怪”的标签,冰糖妈妈们没有承认它们属于这些名字起源的民族和文化。”
