  • Human Rights and Minority Languages: Immigrants’ Perspectives in
           Greece

    • Abstract: Human rights and their fortification through conventions and treaties are thought to be one of the greatest achievements of the previous century. A very important category of human rights is the Linguistic Human Rights (LHR). Linguistic Human Rights are connected to basic human rights and are of great importance in policy and planning. There have been numerous researches on language policies and in educational systems around the world. However, minority populations’ opinion, for example refugees’ opinion, is rarely represented in these researches. The present research aims at exploring the existing language policies in Greece in reference to minority languages. For the needs of this research six adult refugees participated in short semi-structured interviews. Even though participants seemed to be unaware of the term “Linguistic Human Rights”, most of them referred to the difficulty they have in exercising major human rights due to the monolingual policies that are followed in Greece. Taking into consideration the importance of Linguistic Human Rights and people’s need to use their mother language(s) in Greece, the last part of this research includes suggestions and ideas towards multilingual practices that come from different countries around the world.

  • Flattening the Hierarchy Curve: Adaptive Leadership During the Covid-19
           Pandemic – A Case Study in an Academic Teacher Training College

    • Abstract: The Covid-19 pandemic forced institutions of higher education to adopt agile leadership behaviors. The current research aims to examine how the leadership at the Ohalo teacher training college in Israel dealt with the crisis caused by the pandemic. The research hypothesis, predicting a positive relationship between the college leadership’s decisions and lecturers’ positive evaluations regarding these decisions, was confirmed.Previous research has given scant attention to the relationship between running an academic institution and applying principles of adaptive leadership during a crisis. This article presents a case study of adaptive leadership at an academic institution during the Covid-19 pandemic. The conclusions suggest that ensuring the continued functioning of an organization during a crisis requires skills and competencies reflecting multifaceted and adaptive leadership, agility, and direct channels of reciprocal, cooperative communication. Opportunities for initiative taking should be provided, and a consistent policy must be maintained that aims to “flatten the hierarchy curve.”

  • Mio Cid, Noble Warrior Lord

    • Abstract: In the epic tradition the notion of sacrifice to a higher goal often predominates in the plot. In the case of Mio Cid the reader is left to wonder why the hero remains loyal to the king who banishes him unjustly. The warrior retains the posture of persecuted victim, even as he grows powerful by conquest. The Cid patiently sues for redress, and accepts a reconciliatory marriage between his daughters and the nobility to implement the royal pardon. The cruel betrayal by the grooms, who beat their innocent brides, augments the indignity of his suffering.We explain in our study how the Cid exhibits qualities of René Girard’s scapegoat; the noble warrior lord does not give in to vengeance and, instead, seeks retribution without displaying mimetic reciprocity. The difference between the Cid and his envious enemies outlines social injustice. While the nobility is debased by greed, the heroic dimension of the loyal Cid is magnified by humility. Our conclusion shows that self-sacrifice in the epic of Mio Cid projects an image of Christian resignation.

  • Women's Leadership in Local Government

    • Abstract: In the last two decades the number of women involved in politics locally and nationally has increased.  Nevertheless, there is limited empirical work investigating the increase in the number of female candidates for the position of mayor. To fill this gap in the literature, we conducted interviews with 57 of the 72 female candidates for mayor in Israel before the October 2018 elections, and 37 of the 72 female candidates for mayor after the election. In addition, we interviewed 11 male candidates and men elected as mayors after the election, as well. On the individual level with regard to political ambition, we found that there are four components whose synergy results in more women being encouraged to run for mayor: mentoring, information, networking for women and training. We called this model the MINT model, which has emerged from the interviews conducted with the candidates. On the societal level, it is important to increase public awareness of the importance of gender representation and hence, voting for women to be mayors.

           of the International First Rank Universities

    • Abstract: This research is an attempt to deal with the role of social media in the promotion of the name of universities at international scene.  Thus, the analysis of the structure and contents of productions will be the subject of discussion in this research. It should be noted that each social media has unique features and in order to get an ideal result, it is necessary to have knowledge about the details and sociology of the use of social media by users. Having identified the responsibilities which are assigned by propagation designers of universities to department, it will be possible to plan a comprehensive and unique program for the activities of different departments of university, so that in the event of demand, each unit can have an influential role in introducing the university in a professional form.

  • Young Adults’ Perceptions of Online Self-Disclosure

    • Abstract: Online communication has become the primary instrument utilised by many individuals to maintain and form relationships, and self-disclosure plays an important role in the formation of close relationships online. An extensive amount of research has investigated the experiences of adolescents online. However, available knowledge about the influence of social media on young adults within the South African context is limited. Consequently, exploring young adults’ perceptions of online self-disclosure becomes more relevant. The aim of this study was to explore and describe young adults’ perceptions of online self-disclosure, specifically exploring what young adults’ self-disclose online and what psychosocial factors impact thereupon. The present study utilised a qualitative approach and was exploratory and descriptive in design. The sample size of the present study was 13, and semi-structured interviews were utilised as the method of data collection. The data obtained was analysed using thematic analysis and six main themes were identified. This article highlights one of those themes, namely Online Self-disclosure, focusing specifically on the psychosocial factors impacting upon online self-disclosure.

  • Dual Boundaries: The Mechanism of Boundary Construction Operating in
           Interethnic Settings in Georgia

    • Abstract: This paper addresses the question of the boundary construction mechanism between different ethnic groups in Georgia. It demonstrates the duality of boundary construction strategies that operate distinctively in the public and private domains of life. By exploring this substantive issue, I utilize relatively new theoretical perspectives in the study of interethnic boundary construction by concentrating on its multilevel operational character. Drawing on rich data sources within a mixed method approach, I provide empirical evidence concerning how ethnic and national codes of identity are negotiated and combined in everyday interethnic settings. The analyses focus on three ethnic groups residing in the Republic of Georgia – Georgians, Armenians, and Azerbaijanis.

  • Watching of Scary TV Shows by Children and Youth, Identification With
           Characters, and Resulting Fears and Nightmares

    • Abstract: The identification of children and adolescents with characters from the television programs they watch is not limited to the time when they view the program. The connection with the characters continues across the use of various digital means and in various realms of the children’s lives. The purpose of the present study was to examine the connections between patterns of use of various media, the degree of identification with characters from the programs watched, and the fears and nightmares experienced by the children after watching these programs. This is a mixed-method study. Two hundred ninety-six Israeli children and adolescents participated in the study; 45 children and adolescents among those who completed questionnaires were interviewed. The data were collected in 2017-2018. The data revealed that negative identification with the show characters was higher among children than in adolescents. Positive identification with the characters was higher among viewers of scary programs, among those who suffered from nightmares and fears, and among those who perceived the characters and plot as realistic. It was found that interest in programs involving tension, drama, and action increases the risk of nightmares and fears after watching these programs.
