Managing Reproductive Life. Cross-Cultural Themes in Fertility and Sexuality


"[This] ... excellent overview ... should be valuable in medical anthropology, gender and demography studies. It demonstrates the value of anthropology in exploring the varied cultural and economic contexts for reproductive decisions and sexual power relations." · Social Anthropology (EASA)"... the authors provide innovative ethnographic data and analysis ... This edited volume is notable for its coherence and the consistent attention to the themes of the three sections." · American EthnologistThroughout history human societies have sought to manage their reproductive lives to make them fit in with their social, economic and biological conditions. But the different ways communities regulate their fertility, penetrating every aspect of their social life, are so varied and specific that they are often incomprehensible to outsiders. In this book a group of anthropologists set out to throw new light on the dynamics of human reproduction in the world today, looking at the intricate ways that people manage their reproductive life across different cultures, and highlighting the wider meaning of human reproduction and its impact on social organization. The importance of human agency, ethnic boundaries, the regulation of gender relations, issues of fertility and infertility, the significance of children and motherhood and the problems of two large vulnerable social groups, youth and refugees, are all considered in their broader social contexts.

Thomas Niedermeier Vergleich des Risikoverstandnisses in den Disziplinen Wirtschaftsinformatik und Soziologie


Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, grade: 1,3, Technical University of Munich, language: English, abstract: In the sociology of risk, there are two different fields of research: risk objectivism and risk constructivism. The former deals with the actual increase of danger due to greater pressures through new technologies. Risk constructivism deals with the conception, perception and evaluation of risks in the social environment. Beck is a representative of objectivism. In his view, risk is produced by modern society itself. New risks are constantly emerging as a result of technological progress. This means that humans create their own risk environment and must now deal with it. Luhmann sees risk from a systems theory perspective. A social system is a process of social interactions between acting entities. According to Luhmann, risk only arises when there is communication about it. Furthermore, Luhmann sees the distinction between risk and safety as misleading and illusory. He proposes the concept of risk and danger. Douglas and Wildavsky represent neither an objective nor constructive notion of risk. They see risk as a collective construct that is shaped by the social context of the respective actors. The perception of risk is a social process. With the help of the grid-group model, a society can be divided into four cultural forms with specific risk-related characteristics. The cultural forms are individuali...

Ethics and Risk Management


A volume in Ethics in PracticeSeries Editors Robert A. Giacalone, University of Denverand Carole L. Jurkiewicz, Hofstra UniversityThe underlying rationale for this book is to present research that a) highlights the explosively political anddeeply divisive issues involved in managing risk and b) address the empirical deficit and theoreticalchallenges related to managing societal risk ethically. Extant risk management research borrows heavilyfrom engineering, systems theory and business management, and is primarily focused on probabilities,modeling, and abstractions of the value of mitigative action. This research engenders a false sense ofobjectivity and it de-politicizes fundamental political and democratic questions about the allocation ofsociety's scarce resources and about the balance of responsibilities between governing institutions andindividuals with regard to risk. The quantitative and hard-science focus on risk also keeps a discussion ofthe consequences of the distribution of risk, resources and responsibilities for real people out of the limelight. The contributors to this book are experts in a wide range of academic fields and in this book they takeon the challenge of examining their core research with a specific ethics perspective. They explore the ethicsof risk management using theory, cases and data from a range of policy areas, countries and philosophical traditions.This book should be of interest to scholars and practitioners working in fields that deal ei...
