Kulturforståelse som maktanalyse Fredrik Engelstad

Makt trer frem, og den er skult. Makt hviler på hierarkier, institusjoner og kontroll over sosiale ressurser, men også på tegn, symboler og ytringer. De inngår i nesten all maktutøvelse, og skaper egne former for makt gjennom beskrivelser og forståelsesformer som henviser og overtaler, forklarer og forfører.

Invitasjon til sosiologi

Visste du at den amerikanske sosiologen Robert Mertons teori om utilsiktede konsekvenser kan bidra til å forklare den noe snodige klesmoten blant svenske danseband på slutten av 1970-tallet? Eller at Pierre Bourdieu muligens hadde løsningen på hvorfor elektriske biler aldri ble noen suksess? Dette, samt hvordan globalisering kan forklares via en tekopp, og en rekke andre originale spørsmål kan du lese om i denne boken.

Boken er skrevet av stipendiat Hans Erik Næss.

In this timely book, Dr Arnlaug Leira presents both a theoretical and an empirical analysis of the relationship between women’s lives, employment practices and childcare provision.

Adapting to climate change is a critical problem facing humanity. This involves reconsidering our lifestyles, and is linked to our actions as individuals, societies and governments. This book presents the latest science and social science research on whether the world can adapt to climate change. Written by experts, both academics and practitioners, it examines the risks to ecosystems, demonstrating how values, culture and the constraining forces of governance act as barriers to action. As a state-of-the-art review of science and a holistic assessment of adaptation options, it is essential reading for those concerned with responses to climate change, especially researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and graduate students. Significant features include historical, contemporary, and future insights into adaptation to climate change; coverage of adaptation issues from different perspectives: climate science, hydrology, engineering, ecology, economics, human geography, anthropology and political science; and contributions from leading researchers and practitioners from around the world.

In recent years, scholars in international relations and other fields have begun to conceive of security more broadly, moving away from a state-centered concept of national security toward the idea of human security, which emphasizes the individual and human well-being. Viewing global environmental change through the lens of human security connects such problems as melting ice caps and carbon emissions to poverty, vulnerability, equity, and conflict. This book examines the complex social, health, and economic consequences of environmental change across the globe.
