Acerca del evento

Palabras clave:

Me complace comunicarte que quedan convocadas las I Jornadas Complutenses de Investigación en Ciencias Sociales para Estudiantes. Se trata de una iniciativa ideada y gestionada por estudiantes de esta Facultad, haciéndose extensiva a otros estudiantes de Grados y Másteres de otras Facultades y Universidades madrileñas. Las jornadas se celebrarán los días 7 y 8 de Julio de 2015 en la Facultad de Ciencias Políticas y Sociología de la UCM.

El propósito es fomentar y compartir las buenas prácticas investigadoras y la pasión por el estudio de lo social. Para ello se presentarán trabajos originales, realizados por estudiantes con sus propios medios, en el ámbito de las asignaturas cursadas o fuera de estas, buscándose el diálogo y la discusión en torno a las temáticas planteadas. 

Aquellas personas, estudiantes de Grado o Máster en Ciencias Sociales de las universidades madrileñas, que quieran presentar un trabajo de investigación, realizado o en curso, deben presentar previamente una propuesta, antes del 22 de enero de 2015, de acuerdo con las normas y calendario que podrás encontrar en esta página en el apartado de documentación, a la siguiente dirección de correo: jis@ucm.es 

No obstante para asistir no es necesario participar con una ponencia, aunque sí inscribirse con cierta antelación (a partir del 1 de Junio).

Para cualquier aclaración contacta vía email con el comité de coordinación y su coordinador, Vicente Carreño Collado.

Saludos cordiales.

How to write a blogpost from your journal article

https://medium.com/@write4research/how-to-write-a-blogpost-from-your-journal-article-6511a3837caa

One of the oddest things that people in academic life regularly say to me is: ‘I’m not paid to write blogposts, only research articles. If my department or the grant-funder wants to start paying me for doing posts, then that would be a different matter’. Or alternatively, the argument goes: ‘I just don’t have the time to do blogging’. Or finally, the clinching rebuttal is: ‘Your blogpost just won’t get cited, and in today’s research environment, only citations count’

Apparently then a lot of folk suffer from some serious misconceptions about what writing a post entails:

They think it takes days, weeks, or even months to produce that difficult bit of text — it doesn’t, it takes two or three hours at most.

They believe that time devoted to a blogpost is time away from your main research — it’s not. Your post is done after you’ve finished and published your journal article — it is just a more readable and hopefully more popular version of that article, with key messages summarized in about 1,000 words.

Anthropologists do well in movies, indigenous peoples not so much

http://theconversation.com/anthropologists-do-well-in-movies-indigenous-peoples-not-so-much-41618

Films such as Avatar idealise indigenous people as Noble Savages, enjoying simple and uncorrupted lifestyles until contact with colonisers. Nicole Hanusek

Last month, four intrepid anthropologists – led by Gavin Weston of Goldsmiths College – embarked on a journey into uncharted lands. The team faced spear-wielding cannibals, shamans, vampires and giants, all without leaving the couch. Their mission? To study diverse representations of anthropologists in cinema and report their findings to the wider world.

Despite the low-risk nature of their fieldwork, this was by no means a frivolous undertaking. Ever since anthropology emerged as a discipline in the context of European colonial expansion the figure of the anthropologist has been much romanticised and maligned.

‘I’d rather die at sea than stay there’: migrants on crossing the Med

Emmanuel, 24, Ivory Coast

There was too much violence in Ivory Coast. You can’t live there. All my friends have left.

My parents divorced and didn’t look after me. I was nine when I had to drop out of school. I started working to look after myself and put some money aside, little by little. I went to Libya. I worked as an upholsterer so I could pay my rent and buy food. But at the end of the day, they would stop me in the street and take my money. I lived on eggs: they were cheap. But that wasn’t the problem. After almost two years, it became too violent and dangerous. Libyans don’t like anyone who is not Libyan. I was feeling bad; I had no choice but to leave again.

What If Students Could Fire Their Professors?

http://www.npr.org/sections/ed/2015/04/26/401953167/what-if-students-could-fire-their-professors?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=npr&utm_term=nprnews&utm_content=20150426

“Welcome to Iowa State University. May I take your paper, please?”

A bill circulating in the Iowa state Senate would rate professors’ performance based on student evaluations. Just student evaluations.

Low-rated professors would be automatically fired — no tenure, no appeals.

The bill’s author, state Sen. Mark Chelgren, a Republican, argues that too many students are taking on student loan debt but not getting their money’s worth in the classroom. “Professors need to understand that their customers are those students,” Chelgren told the Chronicle of Higher Education.

Though the bill appears unlikely to pass, it has made national news because of the broader debate around student debt, the cost of college and what, exactly, students are getting for their money.

And therein lies the paradox. Yes, students are paying, often handsomely, for their degree. But they’re not exactly customers, either. They’re participants in an experience — one that is meant to be challenging, even grueling.

And that’s why simple satisfaction surveys may not be the best measure of professors’ performance, as our previous reporting explains.
