Alex Mendizabal eta Viviana Tomassetti, italiar haurrek sortu eta grabaturiko euskal kantuen diskoa eskuan.

Tomassetti feminista militantea da eta Associazione Culturale Euskara elkarteko koordinatzailea izan da azken urteotan, UPTER unibertsitateko Euskal Saileko zuzendaria zenbait urtetan eta LIBE online argitaletxearen sortzaileetarikoa.

Associazione Culturale Euskara – Eromako Euskal Etxea elkartea sortzen aritu  eta 13 urtez bertako lehendakari izandako Alex Mendizabalek hauxe adierazi du martxoaren 11n, erreleboa ematerako orduan: “Jarraituko dut bazkide izaten eta ahal dudan moduan laguntzen  baina aldaketak behar direla uste dut. Astindu bat eta energia berriak. Parte-hartze zabalagoa”.

Euskara Erroman: A.C.E. elkartetik EUSKARA.IT plataformara

A.C.E. elkartea 2002 urtean sortu zuten Marlene Merikaetxebarria, Paola Rosa, Wilfried Roell eta Alex Mendizabalek. Hauek dira orain arte Zuzendaritza Kontseilua osatu dutenak. Eusko Jaurlaritzak hasieratik onartu zuen A.C.E. Euskal Etxe bezala eta ondorioz aukera izan zuen elkarteak diru-laguntza publikoa eskatzeko. HABEren laguntzarekin euskara eskolak antolatzen hasi ziren eta Erroma hirian kultur programazioa osatzen. Mendizabalek adierazi duenez: “ACE ez da ordea kultur programazioa soilik. Italiatik bai Euskal Herritik guregana informazio eta laguntza bila jotzen duen hainbat jenderi ahal dugun neurri eta moduan laguntzen diogu. Hau da, Euskal Etxea da”.

Urteotan A.C.E elkartearen inguruan EUSKARA.IT plataforma sortu da, eta bertan biltzen dira ondorengo proiektuak:

– Associazione Culturale Euskara – Eromako Euskal Etxea

–  www.euskara.it web orria

– Dipt Lingua e Cultura Basca dell’Università Popolare UPTER Unibertsitateko Euskal Saila

LIBE online argitaletxea

– Programma Studi Baschi, Università ROMA3 Euskal Saila

Diru-laguntzek itota

Alex Mendizabalek salatu duenez, erakunde publikoen diru-laguntzak izugarri murriztu zaizkie azken urteotan, “eta bereziki Etxepare Institutuak axolagabeki eta ulertu ezinik, diru-laguntzaren 100% kendu dio unibertsitateko Euskal Sailari. Finantzabide berriak bilatzeari ekin behar diogu, publikoak zein pribatuak”.

Euskal hedabideen diru laguntzak publizitate irizpideekin banatu direla diote adituek

Hedabide euskaldunetan egiten den inbertsio publikoa audientzien arabera banatzeak “zalantza metodologiko ugari” sortzen ditu, Euskal Herriko bost unibertsitate irakaslek egindako azterketen arabera.

Josu Amezaga (EHU), Eneko Bidegain (Mondragon Unibertsitateko Huhezi fakultatea), Estitxu Garai (EHU), Xabier Landabidea (Deustuko Unibertsitatea) eta Yosu Yurramendi (EHU) irakasleek txosten bana egin dute Hekimen elkarteak eskaturik.

Ostegunean aurkeztu zuen Hekimeneko zuzendari Alberto Barandiaranek Gipuzkoako Batzar Nagusietako euskara batzordean.

Lan horietan, Eusko Jaurlaritzak euskarazko komunikabideen diru laguntzak banatzeko erabili dituen irizpideak aztertu dituzte eta hainbat hobekuntza proposatu.

Publizitate munduko kontzeptuak laguntzak banatzeko

Irismena “publizitatetik datorren kontzeptua da” adituen ustez, eta “hedabideen jarduna neurtzeko erabiltzekotan, hainbat egokitzapen eskatzen ditu”.

Hortaz, irismenaren kontzeptua “definitzea eta moldatzea” gomendatu diote unibertsitateko adituek Jaurlaritzari, deialdia “gutxieneko berme batzuekin egingo dela ziurtatu ahal izateko”.

Irismena egoki baloratzeko aholkuak

Adituen ustez, audientziak irizpide gisa erabiltzekotan, kontuan hartu beharko lirateke komunikabide bakoitzaren izaera eta hedadura –ez baitaukate publiko potentzial berdina medio nazionalek eta tokikoek–; baita zenbatero banatzen den produktu bakoitza ere.

“Halaber, irismena neurtzeko aldagai homogeneoak behar dira” gaineratu dute adituek: “Irismena puntuatzeko modu bera, eta irismena neurtzeko modu bera ere bai”.

Zer beste gai hartu behar litzateke kontuan?

Hekimenek osteguneko agerraldian defenditu du “gogoeta zabalagoa” behar dela komunikabide euskaldunetan egiten den inbertsio publikoaz.

Jaurlaritzak komunikabideen kostuen portzentaje bat finantzatu beharko luketela uste du Hekimenek, egiturazko premia larrienak konpon daitezen.

“Ondoren”, gaineratu du Barandiaranek, “eragin soziala eta dinamismoak neurtzeko beste aldagai batzuk zehaztu eta ponderatu beharko lirateke”, irismena bera, baina baita berrikuntza, kalitatea edo errentagarritasun soziala ere. “Horrek beste ahalegin bat eskatzen du, ahalegin ekonomikoa ere bai”.

Emakumeen ekarpenak ikusarazteko

http://www.argia.eus/argia-astekaria/2453/emakumeen-ekarpenak-ikusarazteko

Agustina Otaola erraketista izan zen 41 urterekin erretiratu zen arte. Berari buruzko lan bat saritu dute aurtengo edizioan. (Javier Carballo)

Herriari zerbait ekarri dioten emakumeak ezagutarazteko asmoz jarri zituzten martxan duela bost urte Mariasun Landa Sariak Errenteria-Oreretan. Martxoaren 8aren bueltan banatu ohi dira. Eta, pixkanaka, erreferentzialtasuna hartzen ari da herriko idazle ezagunenetarikoaren izena daukan zita. Eredu interesgarri eta imitagarria beste herrientzat ere, urtero-urtero lortzen baitu historia nagusiak, ofizialak, gizonek idazten duten horrek hanka puntetan pasa dituen pertsonak lehen planora ekartzea.

Historia berreskuratzeko ariketa? Bai, baita gehiago ere. Zeresana duten emakumeen lana nabarmenduz, gaurko eta biharko emakumeek egiten dutenari ere merezi duen aitortza emateko aukerak biderkatzen baitira. Gertatutakoa berridaztea bezainbat da historia berria idazteko oinarriak jartzea.

Kalitatezko bederatzi lan aurkeztu dira aurten eta epaimahaiak bi sari eta bi aipamen berezi banatu ditu. Adineko emakumeen historiak izan dira protagonista 2015eko edizioan, Agustina Otaolarena esaterako. 1931n jaioa, 15 urterekin hasi zen erraketista profesional gisa jokatzen, familiako zenbait kideren pausoak jarraituz –lau osaba ere zeregin horretan aritzen ziren–. 1967an erretiratu zen frontoietatik, 41 urterekin eta garai hartako jokalari garrantzitsuenetarikoa bihurtuta. Non zegoen gordea nobela eder baterako ere emango lukeen historia hori? Ez, ez da kontu berria gizonezkoek egiten duten kirola argazki handitan argitaratzea, emakumeen balentriak albiste laburren tarterako utzita.

Kontatuak izatea merezi duten historiak dira. Formatu laburreko testuak (6.000 karaktere artekoak) saritu dituzte martxoan, baina aurtengo irabazleen artean badago arnas luzeagoko lanak idazteko aukera eman dezakeen lehengairik ere.

 

How to manage for collective creativity

What’s the secret to unlocking the creativity hidden inside your daily work, and giving every great idea a chance? Harvard professor Linda Hill, co-author of “Collective Genius,” has studied some of the world’s most creative companies to come up with a set of tools and tactics to keep great ideas flowing — from everyone in the company, not just the designated “creatives.”

Anthropological perspectives on climate change and sustainability: implications for policy and action

https://gsdr2015.wordpress.com/2015/01/23/anthropological-perspectives-on-climate-change-and-sustainability-implications-for-policy-and-action/

Natural science disciplines ranging from climatology to oceanography and from geophysics to biogeography have been involved in research on climate change and its implications for sustainability, but over the past few decades anthropologists have examined these same issues from a rather different perspective. Even earlier, physical anthropologists and archaeologists had begun examining the role of primarily natural climate change in the bio-cultural evolution of humans in Africa and their subsequent dispersal to Eurasia, Australia, and the Americas. Climate change appears to have played a prominent role in the formation of various civilizations, the occupation or abandonment of different regions over time, and the collapse of major civilizations and indigenous societies.

This brief focuses on the recent work of sociocultural anthropologists on anthropogenic climate change, a phenomenon that began with the Industrial Revolution and is characterized by heavy reliance on fossil fuels and emphasis on
persistently enduring economic growth. Particularly after World War II, the global economy began to promote and rely on relentless consumption of manufactured products. This economic model has diffused from the first industrialized countries to the developing world through trade, foreign investment, aid and development programs, and its sustainability implications are not confined to anthropogenic climate change….

Scott Walker Got Gotcha-ed

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/02/scott-walker-got-gotcha-ed-115474.html#.VQQrX_mG_uM

The anthropology of the “gotcha” question.

If journalists put their video cameras on pause, set aside their reporter’s notebooks and turned their keyboards off for a moment and started looking at politics with an anthropologist’s eye instead, what would they make of the three-day media storm precipitated by a Washington Post interview with presidential aspirant Gov. Scott K. Walker of Wisconsin?

The Feb. 22 Post story, now being described from all corners as an example of “gotcha” journalism, reports the Republican governor’s shrugged-shoulders answers to the question of whether or not he knows President Barack Obama is a Christian.

“I don’t know. … I’ve actually never talked about it or I haven’t read about that,” Walker said, before dropping an anvil of derision on the line of questioning. “To me, this is a classic example of why people hate Washington and, increasingly, they dislike the press,” Walker said. “The things they care about don’t even remotely come close to what you’re asking about.”

Walker, who had earlier blamed tongue-tied responses to questions about evolution and foreign policy on an overaggressive press, quickly embedded the Post encounter into a fundraising email, asking donors to “stand up against the publicity hounds and the journalistic pack.”

As gotcha questions go, the ones directed at Walker are rather tame, suggesting that the candidate was feigning outrage to build sympathy, raise money and bury the pushy questions. “Sometimes taking offense can be the best offense,” as Slate’s John Dickerson wrote during the 2008 presidential campaign, describing the fine art of political umbrage-taking.

The public may hate Washington and dislike the press. Who can blame them? But they don’t derive their hatred from the impertinent questions addressed to politicians. Such hazings are an integral part of the struggle for presidential power, as the late James R. McLeod recognized in a 1999 paper. “Through the construction of ritual sociodramas, American society is disarticulated metaphorically every four years and then rearticulated through the election/inauguration cycle,” wrote McLeod, then a professor of anthropology at Ohio State University. “The rhetoric used in these sociodramas includes debates over family values, race, worldviews, economic realities, the nature of the universe, and proper behavior in society.”

CODESRIA GENDER INSTITUTE

Topic: Gender, Land Management and Food Security in Africa

Date: 8th – 26th June, 2015

Venue: Dakar, Senegal

DEADLINE: 20th April 2015

Call for applications: Session 2015

 

The Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) is pleased to announce the 2015 session of its annual Gender Institute. It therefore invites researchers to submit their applications for participation in this Institute to be held from 8th to 26th June, 2015 in Dakar, Senegal.

 

Launched in 1994 by CODESRIA, the Gender Institute is an interdisciplinary forum which brings every year together about fifteen researchers from various parts of the continent and the Diaspora, as well as some non-African scholars who are undertaking innovative research on topics related to the general theme of Gender. Initially aimed at promoting widespread awareness of the concept of gender in the social science research community, the Institute has subsequently been organized around specific themes designed to strengthen the integration of gender analysis into social science research in Africa and encourage the emergence of a community of researchers versed in the field of gender studies.

 

The General Assembly of CODESRIA will be held from 8 to 12 June 2015. In order to give young researchers the opportunity to participate in such an event, the 2015 session of the Gender Institute will exceptionally take place from 8 to 26 June 2015.

 

Organization

The sessions are led by a scientific director who, with the support of the selected resource persons, ensures that the laureates are exposed to a wide range of research and policy issues. Each laureate is required to prepare a research paper to be presented during the session. The revised versions of such papers will undergo a peer review for publication by CODESRIA. The CODESRIA Documentation and Information Centre (CODICE) will provide participants with a comprehensive bibliography on the theme of the Institute. Access to a number of documentation centers in and around Dakar will also be also facilitated.

 

Languages

The CODESRIA Gender Institute will be held in French and in English through simultaneous translation.

 

2015 Session Theme: Gender, Land Management and Food Security in Africa

 

The food deficit and soaring prices of basic foodstuff resulting from the 2008-2009 crisis has brought to light the need for African states to pay close attention in their public policies, to vital issues of land, food security and even food sovereignty. The July 2009 Declaration of the African Union (AU) on Land Issues and Challenges in Africa reaffirms “the crucial importance of land in socio-economic growth and sustainable development, and in securing the social, economic, cultural and livelihood means” of populations. It is worth recognizing the imperative need to address food sovereignty which is considered as the right of every people and every state to acquire the means to directly provide for its basic food requirements, especially since FAO admits that over 200 million people suffer from malnutrition in Africa.
