Questions related to Minority Groups
Where are independent higher education research centres specialising in TRUE Orthodox Christianity, not to be confused with Orthodox Christianity ? True Orthodox Christianity rejects the modernism with its roots in the Russian and earlier Revolutions, including the paracanonical (canonically impermissible) calendar reforms promulgated by incomplete Robber Synods starting with the Patriarchate of Constantinople in the 1920s and the genocide of True (aka Authentic, Genuine or Catacomb) Orthodox Christianity by modernist Orthodox Christianity, resulting ultimately in the response of the True Orthodox Christian 1983 Anathema against Ecumenism by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR) aka Russian Orthodox Church in Exile (ROCIE), embraced by all True, Authentic, Genuine and Catacomb Orthodox Christians. The True Orthodox genocide is numerically by far the greatest Christian martyrdom ever, with tens of millions in the former Russian Empire alone (a large majority of the 110 million "The Economist" estimates were murdered by the Soviet regime alone), was triggered by the refusal of the World Council of Churches, meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, to allow a Greek True Orthodox bishop to speak about this matter, though the New York Times published his proposed address. In response the anathema was promulgated, in English, the WCC official language, at the ROCOR Synodical meeting at their monastery in Mansonville, Québec, also in Canada. Despite making up between 1 and 10% of the Orthodox Christian populations, in the broad sense of the term, throughout the world, I have been, even as an interested True Orthodox Christian, been unable to find any state recognised study centres devoted to the study of True Orthodox Christianity, as opposed to Orthodox Christianity. Some institutions, such as Cambridge University's Institute of Orthodox Christian Studies claim to have all locally active Orthodox Synods represented on their governing bodies, but didn't respond to my request for the publicly available details of the True Orthodox Christian Synods represented there. In any event, that Institute is not an Institute of TRUE Orthodox Christian studies.
Our lab is conducting a research project about Asian-American families. We are investigating Asian-American families' well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically, their experience of racial discrimination, their parent-child relationships, and their children's development. So far we manage to contact churches, organizations, and school communities, but we still need more Philippine and Korean teenagers (12-18 years old) and parents to participate. Any suggestions to help us recruit? I appreciate your help.
In more developed countries, Blacks, Asians and other minority ethnic groups have been found to suffer more severe COVID-19 infections than other ethnic groups. Some have postulated that this is more likely due to genetics. I think than poorer socio-economic states, access to care and health inequality might be a more straightforward reason for this than just genetics.
I am conducting research on minority teachers and wondering what to expect with regards to minorities' attitudes toward other minority groups. Will they be more tolerant? more prejudiced? the same? Can anyone please refer me to some literature on the topic?
Hi, I'm a bit confused on the differences between grounded theory and thematic analysis.
My study is looking at the following :
Mental health, suicide and minority groups : A qualitative investigation.
Aim : to explore how mental health and suicide are perceived by members of tminority groups
1) To explore minority groups perceptions of the causes of poor mental health and suicide.
2) To explore current coping strategies used by minority groups for mental health problems.
3) To explore any barriers to mental health care for minority groups.
Methodology will be qualitative semi-structured interviews with members of the minority group in question.
After collecting the data how will I analyse their answers? Thematic analysis or grounded theory?
I've ruled out IPA because there is no specific lived experience or event I want them to talk about, just their perceptions in general.
Just think about it from the sustainability point of view, who should be expected to benefit locally and internationally and why when a dominant extreme democratic outcome like 2016 USEXIT takes place?. The local minority or majority? International normal liberal democracies or dictatorial systems/democracies/regimes?. What do you think?
I am looking for a qualitative instrument (e.g. scale) related to minority stress, felt stigma, internalized stigma but specific to LGBTQ parents.
There is a growing debate about expertise in peer review. The debate focuses on claims that lived experience needs to be a requirement for those reviewing papers from marginalized, minority groups or persons who face discrimination.
What do you think are the appropriate responses and strategies to address the concerns expressed in the debate?
Propose a discovery or hypothesis for the first time is important in science. Frequently, pioneering research is published in abstracts of scientific meetings (for example, the abstracts of the Society for Neuroscience). In these meetings, new, preliminary and / or controversial ideas are more welcome than in the journals and they are defended face to face...
Therefore, the publication of the title and the date of the abstract in the references of a paper is very important.
Is this a good reason to convince reviewers that they should accept abstracts in the references?
Why do some reviewers not accept this easily?
How many publications have really been withdrawn or rejected because of disagreements on this issue?
I am planning a small research proposal as a part of one of my masters' units. The broead topic of the proposal is social differences in students' academic achievement. I am interested in investigating whether there is a correlation between peer victimization and Academic achievement, using a test of relationships (Pearson, Spearman, Kendall etc.) The sample will be students from ethnic minority groups. My variables will be peer victimization which will be the independent variable and academic achievement which will be the dependent variable. I was thinking of include race/ethnicity as a third variable but if I do so, I don't know which will be the appropriate test for testing the relationship of all three variables.
Can you spot any drawbacks on the research design or in the Research Question?
Is there any reliable and valid measurement for primary school students' academic achievement?
I would appreciate that, because I am a novice in research.
Teaching and learning about multi-dimensional identity is complex. I attach an article chronicling my own wrestling with this issue in the context of Australian young people and the Australian school curriculum.
But supervising some excellent higher degree research candidates exploring the teaching of identity in other contexts such as Pakistan, Nepal, and international schools around the world has only underlined the complexities. Respect for ethnic, indigenous and religious minority groups is usually extolled in official curriculum documents but often majoritarian views dominate in reality in prescribed textbooks, and there are degrees of 'othering' of in-country minorities or countries that are perceived as different.
It would be great to hear from countries or jurisdictions where you feel that genuine, successful and intelligently nuanced educational practices are in place in relation to teaching about identity.
The membership of any sport organisation is provided by the membership. The skewed representation of sport organisation boards is quite likely as much to do with the structure of the legitimising membership. For example, in clubs, where the membership is made up of individuals, one would expect some degree of reflection of the overall membership, certainly with respect to the main differentiations such as gender. However even in these cases it often does not occur. Why?
So then for minority groups with say less than 20% of the total membership, given the democratic processes, why would anyone expect them to gain fair representation. In a democratic process the majority rule.
For organisational membership organisations such as NGB's NOCs and IFs this situation is exacerbated further as minority groups, even gender (which is not really all that minor in many cases), becomes minor due to the way in which the membership is formed and in turn legitimises the next level of organisation.
I would be interested to hear how you feel this can be changed and also why you feel that the minority view should be even disproportionally represented if at all in a majority based democratic system.?
My own opinion is not expressed here, however I do believe that the very structure of sport facilitates the issues that you are investigating.
Which one of the two claims below exposed is right, in the opinion of the experts in gender issues in social research in RG?
1) A gender analysis is not limited to the analysis of the women as object of research, but it is aimed to understand the social construction of gender and to discover the difference in the problem studied.
2) Women can be taken into account as one of the minority groups, such as they are thought in the feminist studies and queer theories, which go beyond the gender construction issue.
I am designing a research project about the effectiveness of bilingual education programs for minority children in China. I need some insight on evaluating the effectiveness of these programs.
I am specifically asking for socio-psychological studies. I do not like the term "intolerance" since it is politically loaded, but make use of the literature on tolerance, too. I am looking for how groups others each other mutually..
I'm looking for research into the effectiveness (or not) of staff networks to support minority groups. Focusing on disabled staff networks but also interested in any other minority groups.
Any suggestions very much appreciated.
Particularly for minority groups. For example, would symptom reduction for an African American depend on the racial composition of the group?
The research is looking at alternatives measures of success among ethnic minority groups. Apart from the attribution theory, what other theory(ies) best explain the construct of success?
Burma has adopted a Constitution in 2008, which features fake federal system. It has a long history of ethnic conflict between majority Burman and many other ethnic minority groups. The political system under the current Constitution is 2008 semi-presidentialism (literally, it is not correct to say).
In a world characterised by increasing integration on economic, political and institutional levels, the notions of sovereignty and independence are becoming somewhat vagues and a number of social entities such as ethnic groups which exist within wider societies are perceiving such integration - which is partly due to globalisation - as a threat to their culture and identity. How can such social groups protect their culture in this context?
I'm the editor of a book on Participation in Community Work and one of the authors had to quit suddenly. I therefor need to get in contact with another author that can be interested in writing a chapter in this book that will be published by Routledge and have authors from 5 continents.
If you are interested in participating in this please contact me. The chapter has to be finished by the end of november latest.
