    Thinking like a man? The cultures of science

    Get PDF
    Culture includes science and science includes culture, but conflicts between the two traditions persist, often seen as clashes between interpretation and knowledge. One way of highlighting this false polarity has been to explore the gendered symbolism of science. Feminism has contributed to science studies and the critical interrogation of knowledge, aware that practical knowledge and scientific understanding have never been synonymous. Persisting notions of an underlying unity to scientific endeavour have often impeded rather than fostered the useful application of knowledge. This has been particularly evident in the recent rise of molecular biology, with its delusory dream of the total conquest of disease. It is equally prominent in evolutionary psychology, with its renewed attempts to depict the fundamental basis of sex differences. Wars over science have continued to intensify over the last decade, even as our knowledge of the political, economic and ideological significance of science funding and research has become ever more apparent

    © Westburn Publishers Ltd 2014. This is the preprint (pre peer-review) version of an article which has been published in its definitive form in Marketing Review, and has been posted by permission of Westburn Publishers Ltd for personal use, not for redistribution. The article was published in [Marketing Review, Vol.14, No.1, pp.97-108, http://dx.doi.org/10.1362/146934714X13948909473266"Experiential learning methods have become increasingly popular in marketing education. Factors underlying this trend are: the desire to respond to the changing higher education environment (the student-customer); the need to endow students with employability skills; the common sense assumption that since marketing is a practical activity, learning from experience makes sense; and, pedagogic methods designed around experiential learning theory which has been widely influential in recent decades. While not seeking to argue that experiential learning methods are ineffective in marketing education, this article argues that they should be used thoughtfully and where the learning goals and the cohort of students are likely to benefit from them. In particular, marketing educators should be wary of imposing an excessively high cognitive load on their students by expecting them to learn complex concepts from experiential learning methods that themselves have an intrinsically sharp learning curve, such as client consultancy projectsNon peer reviewedSubmitted Versio

    Fortress Europe and its metaphors: immigration and the law. CES Working Paper, vol. 3, no.1, 1999

    It is in that context that I would like to listen, obliquely, to two types of discourse that tend to ignore each other: first I want to listen to the legal discourse that manifests itself in this new immigration law, then I also want to listen to a simultaneous layer of discourse, a popular discourse made of images, metaphors, and quotable quotes that constitute a vast reservoir of seemingly spontaneous thoughts on immigrants and their presence in France. I would like to position myself at the intersection between those seemingly incompatible discourses. I would especially like to check to which extent the second type of discourse (those popular images that are so often devalued as a language) do not constitute a second type of law, a law that is sometimes even more rigid that the official one. So, instead of examining the official legal discourse as if it were a self-contained universe, a text that can be read as a finished product, I would like to concentrate on what happens before and after that drafting of the bill. I would like to focus on the ways in which such texts are written, prepared, argued (what happens upstream if you will), but also how the text is read and interpreted. Let’s see if a law on immigration is part of everyday life, if it finally turns into everyday life or if as I will suggest, it reflects what already exists in everyday life and in our culture
