  • Searching for a Silver Lining: Mediated Intergroup Contact and Mental
           Health Perceptions

    • Authors: Kathryn L. Lookadoo, Norman C. H. Wong
      Pages: 1 - 13
      Abstract: This study investigated viewer responses to characters from Silver Linings Playbook, a movie about characters dealing with mental illness, from the perspective of mediated intergroup contact hypothesis. Researchers tested if identification with fictional characters with mental illness reduced viewers’ negative stereotypes about mental illness and increased their willingness to support people with the same illnesses as the characters. Additionally, empathy was tested as a mediator between identification and stereotype reduction. One hundred forty-five participants were randomly assigned to 1 of 3 character conditions. The hypotheses associated with identification and stereotypes and intentions were partially supported. For two characters, empathy mediated the relationship between identification and negative stereotypes. Implications for mediated portrayals of health issues and behaviors are discussed.

  • Fatima Al-Fihri Founder of the First World University

    • Authors: Fahira Fejzić-Čengić
      Pages: 14 - 20
      Abstract: The first modern university concept is made up of a set of simple and proven facts that are rarely studied at European Universities today, from Sarajevo to London. Simply they are just consciously suppressed. This makes the link from the mind disappeared unable to answer the question: how the mid-sluggish religious centuries-old period of Europe was awakened, stepping into a new age. Thus, the current islamophobia would be more easily overcome and people as mankind could more easily cooperate and settle in the beauty of life. Young women, and the founder Fatima Al-Fihri from the Karaouine, University in Africa, established curricula, degrees, diplomas, gown and tassels, and sent the first large volumes of translated books, scientific discoveries and insights for the establishment of early European universities such as Sorbonne, Bologna, Padua from Tunisia, Morocco, Africa, actually from the huge library of the Al Fihri University, University of Al-Karaouine. Can this truth be embedded into the curricula of modern university knowledge'
