I begin the chapter with research, reported recently in The Atlantic, on the surprising phenomenon that many successful women, all accomplished and highly competent, exhibit high degrees of self-doubt. Unlike the original research, the chapter aims to bring into view the role self-respect plays in higher education as another crucial explanatory fac...

Previous research established that children with poorer taxonomic knowledge in the food domain display increased levels of food rejection. However, the food domain heavily lends itself to script and thematic conceptual knowledge (e.g., pancakes at breakfast), to which young children already attend. This series of studies investigated the developmen...

Digital trace data, along with computational techniques to analyze them, provide unprecedented means to study how organizational phenomena change over time. Yet, as digital traces typically lack context, it is challenging to explain why and how such changes take place. In this paper, we discuss temporal bracketing as an approach to integrate contex...

Novel information technologies (ITs), such as mobile devices or third-party cloud services, offer users an increasing variety of action possibilities, i.e., affordances. Organizational IT policies, however, often specify their actualization, i.e., turning those affordances into action, as undesired. Organizations face the challenge that their emplo...

The importance of data as a key resource is a universal theme dominating social and business life. In this regard, inter-organizational data sharing shines in a new light prompting businesses to leverage the potential of their own data. However, it is still unclear what data sharing actually entails, i.e., what it means, what its potentials are, an...

In this paper I discuss Roger Trigg's contribution to this volume on Wittgenstein, concepts, and human nature. Trigg shares many of the basic assumptions that form the methodological framework of cognitive science of religion (CSR) arguing that Wittgenstein's later work shares common ground with presumptions, commitments, and accounts in cultural s...

Objectives Theoretical models have informed the understanding of pregnancy as a ‘teachable moment’ for health behaviour change. However, these models have not been developed specifically for, nor widely tested, in this population. Currently, no pregnancy-specific model of behaviour change exists, which is important given it is a unique yet common h...

Memories are not formed in isolation. They are associated and organized into relational knowledge structures that allow coherent thought. Failure to express such coherent thought is a key hallmark of Schizophrenia. Here we explore the hypothesis that thought disorder arises from disorganized Hippocampal cognitive maps. In doing so, we combine insig...

If sustainability transitions research is to be relevant for upscaled diffusion of radical innovations and wide systemic socio-technical changes, then markets remain critical to account for. Founding frameworks in transition studies regard markets and market formation as important. Yet, the conceptualization of markets has so far not been elaborate...

We propose a conceptual geological model for the collision of multiple basement topographic highs (BTHs; e.g., seamounts, ridges, and horsts) with a forearc accretionary wedge. Even though there are many BTHs on an oceanic plate, there are few examples of modeling the collision of multiple BTHs. We conducted numerical simulations using the discrete...

We often think of “cycling space” in cities as the physical infrastructures – bike lanes, parking facilities, bike boxes, etc. – that demarcate where it is appropriate, safe, or desirable to ride a bike. In this chapter we offer an alternative conceptualization of both “space” and “cycling” to broaden the horizon of how bicycle space is produced. G...

Collision avoidance is important in ship safety, and studies usually investigate collision detection and evasive action. In a give-way situation, the evasive action implemented at the minimum distance for collision avoidance considerably influences the maneuver time of the own ship (OS) to safely move away from the target. Although the evasive acti...

Art has deep connections with both disability and HCI research. From disabled bodies becoming avatars of novel forms of expression, to artistic work being created as an act of resistance, art has been a powerful tool to subvert ableist narratives. Artistic practices have also helped to inspire, innovate and push the boundaries of HCI, giving rise t...
