The Perestroikan Challenge to Social Science

David D. Laitin
2003 Politics & Society  
It offers instead an integrated tripartite method in which narrative, statistics, and formal modeling fill in a scientific frame.  ...  Political science faces a challenge from a "Mr. Perestroika," who decries the hegemony of formal and statistical analysis in the discipline.  ...  Again, the goal would be for a general model of language grievance that could capture the effects of oppressive language laws for political action.  ...

Narrative Generation for Suspense: Modeling and Evaluation [chapter]

Yun-Gyung Cheong, R. Michael Young
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Adapting theories developed by cognitive psychologists, the system uses a plan-based model of narrative comprehension to determine the final content of the story in order to manipulate a reader's level  ...  Although suspense contributes significantly to the enjoyment of a narrative by its readers, there has been little research on the automated generation of stories that evoke specific cognitive and affective  ...  Acknowledgments Partial support for the work described in this paper has been provided by National Science Foundation CAREER award # 0092586 and award 0414722.  ...

"One, Two, Three": Narrative Circles in Plato's Timaeus

Bess R. H. Myers
2018 Arethusa  
Most of Plato's Timaeus consists of the titular figure's account of the generation and structure of the material world and the eternal model upon which it is based-a massive undertaking in sixty-five pages  ...  In addition to its value as a philosophical treatise, I contend that Timaeus's narrative as a whole functions as a meditative model for his fellow feast-friends and for the audience at large.  ...  from the past," while Timaeus's account of the generation of the world "seeks to bring a living model into being here and now" (1996.184).  ...

Semiotics of natural disaster discourse in post-tsunami world: A theoretical framework

Sungdo Kim
2006 Sign Systems Studies  
In this paper I will suggest two models; one is a semiotic model on the natural catastrophic events and the other is a hexagon model composed of semiotic dimensions of natural disaster discourse.  ...  The study of natural disaster and its discursive dimensions from a semiotic perspective can provide a theoretical frame for the scientific communication of global catastrophes.  ...  This has important implications for a general semiotic theory on the processes of social meaning.  ...

Christopher Caes

Garstka adapts this tripartite scheme as an effective device for thinking about attitudes towards history. Why history?  ...  repeatedly toward the past as a reservoir of more-or-less ready made, yet malleable narrative patterns.  ...  The Soviet planned economy model provided the blueprint for Albania's effort to develop its own cultural economy; an effort, the author notes, understood "not as imposition but a common sense solution"  ...

Mary Jane Zander
2007 Studies in art education  
Narrative is a form of discourse that "encode[s] and encrypt[s] the norms, values, and ideologies of the social order" (Friedman, 1998, p. 8).  ...  As a mirror of culture, narrative appears in visual images and reflects the attitudes of society as well as the personal opinions and interests of artists and of those who use images to teach.  ...  Applebee (1996) stated that, Education in general (and formal schooling in particular) is fundamentally a process of mastering new traditions of discourse.  ...

When metaphors become cognitive locks: occupational pension reform in Norway

The need to achieve a model based on actuarial neutrality was agreed upon.  ...

Educational time-out between a rock and a hard place: Vocational students in search of coherent life narratives

Kaja Reegård
2019 Nordic Journal of Vocational Education and Training  
Based on qualitative interviews of VET students, the article finds that this perspective is, however, very different from the (un)planned 'gapping' reality of the working-class students of the study.  ...  The international literature on gap year, emphasises that this is a way for privileged students of getting ahead in the competition for access to elite universities.  ...  The national VET system is designed according to a 2 + 2 model. This refers to the division of the standard 4-year model into 2 years of school-based learning followed by 2 years of apprenticeship.  ...
