  • Journalism and history in a change of era (DOI: 10.2436/20.3000.02.39)

    • Authors: Jaume Guillamet
      Abstract: The effects of the digital technologies and the Internet on the social media system offer a change of perspective on the history of journalism, which is now at the end of an evolutionary era. After four centuries, the press and journalism have been replaced in their role as drivers of the media industry by the increasingly dominant audiovisual media, websites and social networks. Consequently, researchers are faced with a new dimension of historical time that affects our most recent past. This study suggests several factors to be considered in connection with the crisis in journalism, the nature of the media and the specific era of Catalan journalism today.Key words: journalism, history, change of era, crisis, nature of the media, Catalan journalismOriginal source: Comunicació.

  • Intergenerational transmission of gender roles in the household (DOI:

    • Authors: Marc Ajenjo Cosp, Joan García Román
      Abstract: This paper studies parent-child transmission of gender roles in Spain using the 2009-2010 Time-Use Survey (National Statistical Institute). Drawing from an indicator based on differences in unpaid work between siblings of different genders, we analyse the effects of parent characteristics - such as the mother's occupation, the father's participation in household chores, household income and parents' education - on the extent to which gender roles are transmitted. These variables are shown to explain much of the variation in child gender roles, supporting an important child-parent mimicry effect in gendered behaviour.Key words: time allocation, gender roles, intergenerational transmission, SpainOriginal source: Revista Catalana de Sociologia, 29: 35-47 (2014)

  • The use of international private law as a criterion for the application of
           Catalan civil law in Catalonia (DOI: 10.2436/20.3000.02.41)

    • Authors: Albert Font i Segura
      Abstract: The system of conflict of laws and the principle of unity of jurisdiction are under the influence of the plural composition of the Spanish legal system in civil law matters. The aim of this article is to examine cases in which the rules on concflict of laws should be applicable in order to determine the application of Catalan civil law.Key words: private international law, interregional law, rules on conflict of lawsOriginal source: Revista Catalana de Dret Privat, 15(1): 77-86 (2015)

  • Ramon Llull, inspirer and pedagogue of civil religion (DOI:

    • Authors: Pere Fullana Puigserver
      Abstract: The article presents the new place of the figure of Ramon Llull in the modern civic and religious universe. Llullism has had a clear impact on Mallorcan society since the 14th century, in parallel to the knowledge and the university-centred and political debates he generated in the past. Llull was the Blessed Brother par excellence and the originator of the Fatherland, and he continues to be so in contemporary times. This article is divided into two main sections: first, one in which the changes and adaptations of Llull in the 19th century are presented, and secondly, one which addresses the dual role -religious and civic- of the figure of Llull within the framework of the commemoration of the 6th centennial of his death, promoted by the diocese based on the initiatives of Bishop Pere Joan Campins, and by Palma City Hall with the creation of the Institut d'Estudis Superiors per a la Dona [Institute of Higher Studies for Women].Key words: religion, Catholicism, feminism, Llullism, modernity, education, MallorcaOriginal source: Educació i Història.

  • Innovation and evaluation in the context of a changing paradigm in
           education (DOI: 10.2436/20.3000.02.43)

    • Authors: Joan Mateo
      Abstract: Evaluation involves a specific form of educational research and aims primarily at developing and improving the reality in which it operates. It is a transforming practice that requires the activation of the most relevant cultural, social and political wherewithal of the context in which it works in order to have a deep impact. From the methodological standpoint, modern evaluation incorporates new logics that enable it to adapt to changing needs and addresses emerging spaces, such as educational innovation.Thus, evaluative thinking contributes to new learning by providing evidence to map and monitor the progress, successes, failures and roadblocks in innovation as it unfolds. It involves thinking about what evidence will be useful during the course of innovative activities and establishing the range of objectives and targets that allow its progress to be determined- It is also considered one of the best strategies to develop a new form of teacher training and professional development.Here we provide a description of and a reflection on the different stages in the evaluative cycle of educational innovation from a dynamic viewpoint.Key words: educational innovation, evaluation, research, transformative practice, training, professional developmentOriginal source: Revista Catalana de Pedagogia, 12: 39-59 (2017)

  • The concept of nation, today (DOI: 10.2436/20.3000.02.38)

    • Authors: Salvador Giner, Oriol Homs
      Abstract: The events in Catalonia today are unquestionably serious and unique. They are calling on us to make an effort to understand them in all their complexity. We have developed these reflections with the intention of being impartial and even-keeled, as they follow neither the line nor the ideology of any party or political movement. We want to expand on and deepen what we said in our book Raó de Catalunya, La societat catalana al segle XXI (Giner and Homs, 2016), a compilation of different authors' contributions which we co-edited, and to which we also contributed.Original source: Revista Eines, 30: 26-34 (2018)
