The Relationship between Levels of Gender and Ethnic Group Representation

Ruedin, Didier

In: Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism, 2010, vol. 10, no. 1, p. 92-106

This article examines the relationship between levels of gender representation and levels of ethnic group representation in national parliaments. Taagepera (1994) and Lijphart (1999) predicted that because of shared mechanisms and covariates levels of representation in the two forms should be positively correlated. Whilst this paper can identify a number of shared covariates, there is no evidence...

On the Emergence of the Subject

Zittoun, Tania

In: Integrative Psychological and Behavioral Science, 2012, vol. 46, no. 3, p. 259-273

The paper retraces the elaboration of a model that accounts for the emergence of subjectivity—the possibility to distance self from others and oneself—if we consider people as always taken in social and cultural streams of meaning and tensions. It builds a model considering first, human experience as possible when a person takes distance from the here-and-now. Second, it suggests considering...

As the world turns: short-term human spatial memory in egocentric and allocentric coordinates

Banta Lavenex, Pamela A. ; Lecci, , Sandro ; Prêtre, Vincent ; Brandner, Catherine ; Mazza, Christian ; Pasquier, Jérôme ; Lavenex, Pierre

In: Behavioural Brain Research, 2011, vol. 219, no. 1, p. 132-141

We aimed to determine whether human subjects’ reliance on different sources of spatial information encoded in different frames of reference (i.e., egocentric versus allocentric) affects their performance, decision time and memory capacity in a short-term spatial memory task performed in the real world. Subjects were asked to play the Memory game (a.k.a. the Concentration game) without an...

Four social psychological lenses for developmental psychology

Zittoun, Tania ; Perret-Clermont, Anne-Nelly

In: European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2009, vol. 24, no. 3, p. 387-403

How can the advances of social and developmental psychology be integrated? This conceptual paper proposes to examine four basic theoretical models of social situations through which learning and development have been observed in the post-piagetian tradition: the psychosocial triangle, the frame, models of transfer and transitions, and models integrating the notion of cultural instrument. We show...
