  • #Activism: Identity, Affiliation, and Political Discourse-Making on

    • Authors: Alexah Konnelly
      Pages: 1 - 16
      Abstract: Twitter is increasingly recognized for having transformative potential for group advocacy. It also acts as a forum for spreading awareness and information on social justice (or activist) movements, as well as for dialogue between users on a given social justice subject. This study examines what motivates the use of hashtags in the activist context, and how this usage connects to broader discourses and ideologies. Drawing on a corpus of two prolific activist hashtags – #YesAllWomen and #HeForShe – I employ a range of methodologies and frameworks to tease apart issues of use, affiliation, and context. I operationalize Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL), an analytical approach concerned with linguistic choices and how language is structured to achieve socio-cultural meanings, to analyze the engagement, meanings, and functions manifest in the dataset. The quantitative results are interpreted within the framework of Feminist Critical Discourse Analysis. I argue that hashtags are both linguistic and social facilitative devices, employed by users to assert their collective identity and political affiliation.

  • Assisted Migration and Latitudinal Limitations of Whitebark Pine

    • Authors: Jesse Wood
      Pages: 17 - 24
      Abstract: Whitebark pine, a high alpine tree species, is limited up to 55N despite uncolonized suitable habitat that exists in Northern British Columbia. It is unclear what limits its northward distribution. Whitebark pine is dependent upon a bird species, Clark’s nutcracker, for its seed dispersal, therefore, the bird’s limitations must be examined. As optimal seed caching sites are located in recently burned sites, this paper hypothesizes that the fire regime in northern forests is not conducive for the creation of these sites. Assisted migration projects must focus more attention to long-term regeneration by addressing the needs of Clark’s nutcracker.

  • Bridging the Gap Between Instruction and Assessment: Examining the Role of
           Dynamic Assessment in the Oral Proficiency Skills of
           English-as-an-Additional-Language Learners

    • Authors: Jeness Weisgerber
      Pages: 25 - 40
      Abstract: This exploratory study investigated the role of dynamic assessment (DA) in improving the oral proficiency skills of English-as-an-additional-language learners. It focused specifically on speaking test scores and the use of language learner strategies, with the goal of providing empirical evidence as well as pedagogical recommendations. Seven participants were administered a section of the IELTSTM Speaking test in both dynamic and standardized formats. Each test was followed by a think-aloud protocol in order to ascertain participants’ thoughts and strategic behaviours during the testing process. In terms of test scores, results showed no holistic differences, but did show differences in fluency, grammatical range, and lexical resource scores. Scores for grammatical range and lexical resource were higher in DA, while scores for fluency were higher in standardized assessment. An analysis of the participants’ strategic behaviours also showed a greater use of cognitive and metacognitive strategy use in DA. These results point to DA’s potential to facilitate the development of grammatical and lexical abilities as well as to foster the use of language learner strategies within the sample.

  • Technology Supports for Community-Dwelling Frail Older Adults

    • Authors: Richelle Stanley
      Pages: 41 - 49
      Abstract: Population aging is placing extensive pressure on home care programs to provide the necessary services for complex care clients to remain in their homes and avoid institutionalization or hospitalization. Finding innovative and cost-effective ways of meeting the healthcare needs of older adults and the healthcare workers who support them is becoming a pressingly urgent issue. Assistive in-home technologies, such as tools for fall prevention and medication management, have been demonstrated to positively impact health outcomes and the quality of life of autonomous older adults living in the community. This literature review identifies supportive technologies that may improve the home care of complex older adults while reducing caregiver stress through a comprehensive examination of current literature in the field of “gerontechnology.” Past research has demonstrated the adoption of technology for home care support is beneficial in retaining older adult independence while reducing the risk of falls, medication errors, and caregiver stress. The findings of this review highlight how technologies are currently being integrated into home care and how the healthcare system can better include these technologies for home care support in the care of community-dwelling older adults.

  • Marie Antoinette: innocente ou coupable? Une analyse de sa
           représentation filmique

    • Authors: Taryn Burgar
      Pages: 50 - 62
      Abstract: leur impact sur les croyances collectives face à l’histoire devient une vraie nécessité. Marie Antoinette est une personnalité historique qui nous captive encore, plus de 200 ans après son décès. Le débat au sujet de son innocence ou sa culpabilité comme reine de France reste encore présent et pertinent dans le domaine historique et dans la culture populaire ; l’intersection entre ces deux perspectives devrait être étudiée de plus près. Ce projet de recherche examine huit films qui représentent également les films francophones et anglophones. Il démontre que les films se rapprochent de la pensée actuelle des historiens voulant que Marie Antoinette fût plutôt une victime des circonstances, mais que plusieurs mythes au sujet de sa vie privée persistent dans les films : la société occidentale n’est toujours pas prête à relâcher sa critique d’elle. Des variations culturelles sont pourtant apparentes dans plusieurs films. Les films anglophones se délectent de l’aspect visuel de Versailles et insistent plus sur l’innocence de la reine, tandis que les films francophones ont tendance à se concentrer sur l’aspect historique et ne se distancient pas entièrement de l’idée de sa culpabilité.

  • The Spirituality of Atheist and “No Religion” Individuals in
           the Millennial Generation: Developing New Research Approaches for a New
           Form of Spirituality

    • Authors: Samantha Bahan
      Pages: 63 - 75
      Abstract: As of 2011, those who identify as non-religious represented a portion of Canada’s population 2.5 times larger than the combined total of those reporting as Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Sikh, and Hindu, with no indication that the rate of growth for this population is subsiding. Despite this growing population, religiously unaffiliated spiritual millennials are going undetected in the academic literature, and there is confusion between contemporary understandings of spirituality and religiousness for both researchers and millennials. Researchers seeking to understand the spiritual lives of millennials have typically assessed the growth of this movement by the number of individuals who identify as “spiritual but not religious,” a phrase which emerged alongside the 1960s New Age movement to describe the so-called ‘spiritual seekers.’ This paper seeks to identify some of the sources of millennial spirituality, such as culture shifts during the 1960s and 70s and the secularization of the Canadian public education system, and to define a new form of spirituality unique to millennials. Alternative approaches to studying this group are proposed, and it is suggested that the phrase “spiritual but not religious” is no longer sufficient for understanding the spirituality of religiously unaffiliated individuals.

  • The Pursuit of Happiness: The Effect of Social Involvement on Life
           Satisfaction in Canada

    • Authors: Leila Mazhari
      Pages: 76 - 100
      Abstract: A popular area of discussion within “happiness studies” across disciplines is the question of whether money can buy happiness or not. Contradictory findings have encouraged an ongoing debate and keep the topic aflame among sociologists, economists, and psychologists. Recently, sociologists have branched out to consider other social factors that may bear a closer relationship to a person’s level of happiness: marital status, religiosity, work and employment, to name a few. Using quantitative methods to analyze data from the 2005-2006 World Values Survey, this paper shows that social involvement and civic participation can promote happiness among Canadians. Statistical controls rule out potential confounding variables, which are based off of past literature on happiness studies. The results suggest that social involvement does indeed promote happiness among Canadians; however, there are multiple factors which increase or decrease one’s likelihood of being socially involved. Three major influencers were identified: affluence, education and religiosity.

  • Turn the Page, Hear Her Shout: Dissident Voices in the Journals of Female
           Secondary School Students and the Silence of their Male Counterparts

    • Authors: Rachel Lallouz
      Pages: 101 - 118
      Abstract: This research investigates how a minority of female secondary school students in a Writing 12 class resisted internalization of gender stories by rewriting and subverting those same stories through the process of journaling. Journal material collected from five female students was analyzed using qualitative narrative analysis of quotes that demonstrate rewritten gender stories. The research examines how female students positioned the self as the storyteller, and by doing so, adopted an active role in reconstructing their narrative identities to include traits of strength and resilience. Journal material collected from three male students—the only consenting male students—revealed an absence of these students directly addressing the concept of gender through writing. The research suggests that for these male students, simply engaging in the project of journaling was a form of resistance against gender stories idealizing an noncompliant, less emotionally active male student and writer.

  • Une analyse de l’intertextualité dans Paul a un travail
           d’été par Michel Rabagliati

    • Authors: Brynn Fader
      Pages: 119 - 125
      Abstract: Cet article étudie les références implicites et explicites au Petit Prince qui figurent dans Paul a un travail d’été de Michel Rabagliati. La différence entre le comportement des enfants et celui des adultes autour d’eux qui suscite le découragement, de même que les thèmes de la transformation grâce à l’amitié et du sens des responsabilités, sont traités en des termes provenant du texte de Saint-Exupéry. Les références au thème d’un adolescent qui mature à travers la vie permettent au public de Rabagliati de se retrouver dans sa bande dessinée, car les expériences de Paul résonnent avec celles des lecteurs.
