"Ruth: Bridges and Boundaries" is a literary close reading of the text as a bridge between the anarchic period of the Judges and the monarchic age that begins with the birth of David, as reflected through Ruth's absorption process within Bethlehemite society. This bridge is constructed from three main axes: the theological perception that human actions have the power to shape and advance reality; the moral-legal perception that the spirit of the law must be privileged over the letter of the law and social conventions; and the principle that the institute of monarchy must be based upon human compassion. The commentary traces the narrative sequence through the paradigm of this three-fold cord, showing how these threads are woven throughout the book. This innovative reading is illustrated with an unprecedented psychological analysis of Ruth as a narrative of transition, using modern psychological theories. This contemporary yet textually faithful literary commentary offers new insight into the inner workings of the text of Ruth as literary masterpiece. Academic yet accessible, this work provides tools for readers of Ruth and the field of biblical narrative in general.

Drawing on group position theory, settler colonial studies, critical race theory, and Indigenous theorizing, Canada at a Crossroads emphasizes the social psychological barriers to transforming white settler ideologies and practices and working towards decolonization. After tracing settlers’ sense of group superiority and entitlement to historical and ongoing colonial processes, Denis illustrates how contemporary Indigenous and settler residents think about and relate to one another. He highlights how, despite often having close cross-group relationships, residents maintain conflicting perspectives on land, culture, history, and treaties, and Indigenous residents frequently experience interpersonal and systemic racism. Denis then critically assesses the promise and pitfalls of commonly proposed solutions, including intergroup contact, education, apologies, and collective action, and concludes that genuine reconciliation will require radically restructuring Canadian society and perpetually fulfilling treaty responsibilities.

ABSTRACT: An epistemological and methodological approach, The Change Laboratory, is analysed to determine which forms of distributing knowledge are apparent during cross-cultural research. Distributing knowledge is intricately related to methodological design, to researchers' and practitioners' life experiences and to roles of power. The article concludes that research conducted across cultures necessitates careful analysis of the power found within forms of distributing knowledge. This power is derived from a tacit belief that certain knowledge is only available to those within a given circle or that it is available to those outside a given circle without alteration.

Multidirectional language contact involving more than two languages is little described. However, it probably represents the most common type of contact in the world, where colonization, rapid socioeconomic and demographic change, and society-wide multilingualism have led to dramatic linguistic change. This book presents fascinating cases of multidirectional contact and convergence between highly diverse languages in an emerging linguistic area in Suriname and the Guianas and proposes a framework for comparable studies.

Boundaries and Bridges

This book explores the meaning of gaps and intervals between events and between experiences—the transitional space/time separating them, as well as the metaphorical bridges that could join them.

Time and space provide the coordinates for the exploration of psychological phenomena and, more specifically, of what takes place in the psychoanalyst's consulting room: in the minds of the two participants, as well as in the complex relationship that develops between them. Boundaries and Bridges consists of eleven chapters covering, among others, such topics as: the development of a sense of time in children, the temporal dimension of the psychoanalytic setting, the function of the couch in the therapeutic process, the importance of silence, and of sounds, in human development and in the analytic relationship itself. Illustrated by the case material about a "replacement child" and by several clinical vignettes, the book, as stated in its thought-provoking Introduction, is the author's attempt to distil some of the ideas which, in the course of almost forty years of analytic work, have emerged as foundations to his thinking and practice.

Crossing Boundaries Building Bridges

These papers provide an investigation of the contribution made by women to the traditionally male-dominated industry of engineering.

Women engineers have been in the public limelight for decades, yet we have surprisingly little historically grounded understanding of the patterns of employment and education of women in this field. Most studies are either policy papers or limited to statistical analyses. Moreover, the scant historical research so far available emphasizes the individual, single and unique character of those women working in engineering, often using anecdotal evidence but ignoring larger issues like the patterns of the labour market and educational institutions. Crossing Boundaries, Building Bridges offers answers to the question why women engineers have required special permits to pass through the male guarded gates of engineering and examines how they have managed this. It explores the differences and similarities between women engineers in nine countries from a gender point of view. Through case studies the book considers the mechanisms of exclusion and inclusion of women engineers.

The present study explored the experiences of international students in regard to their uses of social media for learning and their resulting perceptions of connection to peers in their first semester at an Australian university. This mixed methods study included volunteer sampling of international students from language backgrounds other than English. A survey was conducted of participants' social media uses prior to beginning their degree (n equals 43), and followed with interviews during their first semester to explore their experiences of using social media for educational purposes (n equals 28). The resulting data revealed how the use of social media for learning presents both challenges and affordances for facilitating connection between international students through bridges, boundaries, and hybrid spaces. It is argued that informal student-directed uses of social media to conduct peer interactions for learning purposes is an active space that is impacting on international students' perceptions of connections to classmates. Where collaborative interactions can be facilitated, these situations can lead to students making connections, or bridges, for learning. However, where only cooperative interactions take place, or students are using new digital spaces that they are uncomfortable in, students can be left feeling disconnected through the visible boundaries from the peers that they are learning with. Finally, where bridges can be made through social media, there is the possibility for hybrid spaces to develop that can accommodate both the academic and social lives of students. The recommendations from the findings are that classroom modelling of collaborative forms of online interaction that build connection would assist in students being better able to create similar conditions in their own informal interactions with classmates. Further research of international students' experiences beyond their first semester of university would broaden understanding of how the use of social media for learning impacts on a sense of connection.

This book explores the macro and micro social contexts in which alternative and bio-medicine co-exist in Israel. It includes a history of alternative health care in Israel and analysis of current policies and dilemmas regarding different forms of health care, and provides an in-depth analysis of medical professionals who have added alternative health care to their repertoire of professional skills in their practice settings in hospitals and community clinics. The heterogeneity of patient populations in Israel makes it possible to explore attitudes of different cultural groups toward alternative health care. These include Jewish immigrants from different countries as well as Bedouin and other Arab groups. Since alternative medicine is a growing part of the overall health care system in many countries, the book provides insights gained from the Israeli experience regarding its co-existence along with conventional medicine—to a broad spectrum of health professionals, policy makers and laypersons.

Every piece of land, no matter how remote or untrammeled, has a boundary. While sometimes boundary lines follow topographic or biological features, more often they follow the straight lines of political dictate and compromise. Administrative boundaries nearly always fragment a landscape, resulting in loss of species that must disperse or migrate across borders, increased likelihood of threats such as alien species or pollutants, and disruption of natural processes such as fire. Despite the importance and ubiquity of boundary issues, remarkably little has been written on the subject.Stewardship Across Boundaries fills that gap in the literature, addressing the complex biological and socioeconomic impacts of both public and private land boundaries in the United States. With contributions from natural resource managers, historians, environmentalists, political scientists, and legal scholars, the book:develops a framework for understanding administrative boundaries and their effects on the land and on human behavior examines issues related to different types of boundaries -- wilderness, commodity, recreation, private-public presents a series of case studies illustrating the efforts of those who have cooperated to promote stewardship across boundaries synthesizes the broad complexity of boundary-related issues and offers an integrated strategy for achieving regional stewardshi.Stewardship Across Boundaries should spur open discussion among students, scientists, managers, and activists on this important topic. It demonstrates how legal, social, and ecological conditions interact in causing boundary impacts and why those factors must be integrated to improve land management. It also discusses research needs and will help facilitate critical thinking within the scientific community that could result in new strategies for managing boundaries and their impacts.
