ABSTRACT

In this paper, it is exploring the discourses on sexuality that, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, are reproduce and circulate on Instagram accounts of six Argentine sexologists who do sex education and publicize their professional work through these social media. From digital ethnographic explorations we analyze how these professionals construct a way of narrating the knowledge of sexology on the internet;deploy pedagogical activities that position them as new references in the field of national sexology and configure a network of "instagramers" dedicated to sex education.

ABSTRACT

The purpose of this paper is to show the strategies and motivations that students of the Universidad Pedagógica Veracruzana have used to continue their studies in the context of the social confinement derived from the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced students to continue their studies by electronic means. Hence the need to investigate the students within this pandemic context;what and how they are doing their studies is fundamental in terms of prospective since it will allow improving their processes in the future since a mixed modality scenario has even been proposed for higher education once the confinement ends. Thus, an exploratory study was carried out, using a multi-method perspective, under an ethnographic approach;for this purpose, quantitative and qualitative techniques were used, such as surveys, observation records, and semi-structured interviews directed to a sample of a total of 82 students of the above-mentioned institution at the undergraduate, masters and doctorate levels. In this sense, elements of importance were found for the management of school activities in this rupture of normality, since the main strategy identified was the diversification of activities and fundamental motivations, the support of the family to continue studies in confinement, which has given us a prospective vision in which the institutional support should be oriented to know and take into account the socio-cultural contexts of their students in order to establish an efficiently mixed modality.Alternate :El presente trabajo tiene como finalidad evidenciar las estrategias y motivaciones que los estudiantes de la Universidad Pedagógica Veracruzana han empleado para continuar sus estudios en el contexto del confinamiento social derivado de la pandemia por el COVID-19, lo cual obligó a los estudiantes a continuar sus estudios por medios electrónicos. De ahí la necesidad de investigar sobre los estudiantes dentro de este contexto pandémico;el qué y cómo están realizando sus estudios es fundamental en términos de prospectiva, puesto que permitirá mejorar sus procesos en un futuro, en tanto que se hasta se ha planteado un escenario de modalidad mixta para la educación superior toda vez que el confinamiento termine. Siendo así, es que se realizó un estudio de tipo exploratorio, empleando una perspectiva multi-metódica, bajo un enfoque etnográfico;para ello se han empleado técnicas cuantitativas y cualitativas, como: encuestas, registros de observación y entrevistas semiestructuradas dirigidas a una muestra de un total de 82 alumnos de la institución señalada de los niveles de licenciatura, maestría y doctorado. En este sentido, se encontraron elementos de importancia para el manejo de actividades escolares en esta ruptura de la normalidad, pues se identificaron como principal estrategia la diversificación de actividades y motivaciones fundamental el apoyo de la familia para continuar los estudios en confinamiento, lo cual nos ha planteado una visión prospectiva en la cual el apoyo institucional se debe orientar en conocer y tomar en cuenta los contextos socio-culturales de sus estudiantes a fin de lograr establecer una modalidad mixta eficiente.

ABSTRACT

, Routledge: London, 2020;178 pp., ISBN 978-0-367-25228-1, €120 (hbk) The COVID-19 pandemic - while introducing an array of profound challenges to once stable social institutions - highlights the urgent need for the development of rapid forms of social research techniques to comprehend such events and, most critically, to guide effective intervention. Sangaramoothy and Kroeger, as part of their respective roles in the CDC, have worked together in developing, planning and carrying out several important REAs. They have also delivered trainings on REA to CDC staff, state and local health department personnel, and practitioners in non-governmental and community-based organisations, which has culminated in the practical focus of the book and its core community-engagement dimension.

ABSTRACT

The United States (U.S.) has a long history of racism and xenophobia, especially around infectious outbreaks. Recently, the associations of COVID-19 to China and Chinese people have been reflected in a surge of anti-Asian sentiment and hate crimes. Therefore, the present study examines the perceived change in everyday racism among Asians in the U.S. during the COVID-19 outbreak. This study used self-report surveys to assess the perceptions of everyday racism before and during the pandemic among Asians, Latinxs, and Whites residing in the U.S. We tested a 3 (race [Asians vs. Latinxs vs. Whites]) x 2 (perceptions [before vs. during pandemic]) analysis of covariance with repeated measures for perceptions to determine whether there were differences between racial groups for everyday racism before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. Findings strongly indicate that Asians in the U.S. perceived a change in everyday racism during the COVID-19 pandemic compared to Latinxs and Whites. Exploratory findings show that East and Southeast Asians, in particular, experienced the steepest perceived increase in everyday racism. Anti-Asian sentiment seems to have intensified in the U.S. during the COVID-19 pandemic, as evident in the rise of everyday racism against Asians. These experiences may serve as additional stressors for Asians in the U.S. during these already distressing times and disproportionately impact East and Southeast Asians. Implications for theory, research, and practice are discussed.

In particular, East and Southeast Asians experienced the steepest increase in racism-related experiences. Overall findings highlight an alarming escalation in everyday exchanges of anti-Asian sentiment during the COVID-19 pandemic. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)

ABSTRACT

The beginnings of the interview date back to 2019, the year when we commemorated the 50th anniversary of the publication of Ethnic Groups and Boundaries (Barth 1969). We used this event as a springboard for looking back at the rich professional trajectory of Professor Ulf Hannerz, in which ethnicity and other forms of collective identities play one of the key roles. The interview was started after a lecture by Professor Hannerz, ‘Fifty Years of Diversity Watching’, given at the Department of Ethnology of Charles University in Prague in September 2019, and it was finalised during the COVID-19 pandemic online via e-mailing the questions and answers back and forth between Stockholm and Prague.

ABSTRACT

Since coronavirus disease (COVID-19) emerged at the beginning of 2020, reports of anti-Asian racism have surged, yet little is known in the empirical literature about participants' lived experience of racism during this time. We designed a qualitative, intrinsic, revelatory case study to examine the different types of anti-Asian racism being perpetrated, and the contexts and perpetrators during the first 6 months of COVID-19. We analyzed the online and written responses of 193 self-identified Asian Americans from over 32 states and corroborated their experiences with news articles, journal articles, and reports of anti-Asian hate crimes published during the same period. Our analysis yielded 11 types of racist experiences: (a) No direct personal experience, only vicarious, (b) Stared at, glared at, shunned, (c) Singled out and treated poorly, (d) Indirectly referenced in third person, (e) Was the butt of a racist joke, (f) Blamed for the virus, (g) Stereotyped with racist characterization, (h) Told to go back to an Asian country, (i) Called a racial slur, (j) Hostile verbal assault, and (k) Physically threatened. Regarding the context and perpetrator of anti-Asian racism, our analysis yielded seven subthemes: (a) from friends and family, (b) at school and work, (c) in daily tasks, (d) while commuting, (e) in the socialization of children, (f) in online spaces, and (g) from police and security officers. Our findings showcase the wide range of anti-Asian racism and underscore the need to integrate scientific research with advocacy efforts to enhance awareness of anti-Asian racism. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved) Impact Statement We designed a qualitative study to examine anti-Asian racism during the first 6 months of COVID-19 in the U.S. We wanted to know what types of racism were being perpetrated, by whom, and in what settings. Our findings revealed a wider range of anti-Asian racism than what has been captured in the scientific literature and advocacy efforts to document Asian American experiences of racism.

ABSTRACT

The present study examined the extent to which coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) racial discrimination related to life satisfaction, depression, and anxiety in 246 Filipino Americans. The extent to which coping strategy moderated the mediated relationship of COVID-19 racial discrimination via depression and anxiety on life satisfaction was also explored. Findings indicated that Filipino Americans who experienced or witnessed COVID-19 racial discrimination were significantly more likely to experience decreased levels of life satisfaction and increased levels of depression and anxiety. Higher levels of discrimination were significantly related to higher levels of depression which were linked to poorer life satisfaction. Coping strategy moderated the mediated relationship of COVID-19 racial discrimination via depression with life satisfaction. Engagement and disengagement coping responses significantly moderated the link between COVID-19 discrimination with anxiety and depression, respectively. Implications for mental health professionals, study limitations, and future areas of research are additionally provided. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved) Impact Statement What is the public significance of this article?-Greater use of overall coping reduced the negative impact of COVID-19-related racial discrimination on life satisfaction among Filipino Americans. Filipino Americans may use engagement and disengagement coping strategies to mitigate the effects of anxiety and depression-related symptoms, respectively, which may be influenced by cultural, Indigenous, and religious factors.

ABSTRACT

COVID-19 restrictions and the social and financial repercussions are negatively affecting the mental health of Australians. Asian Australians may be further at risk of negative mental health outcomes due to the racial discrimination that has emerged during this pandemic. This study used an online questionnaire to assess whether COVID-19-related racial discrimination (firsthand and secondhand), acculturation, and perceived social support predicted psychological distress (depressive, anxiety, and stress symptoms) among Asian Australians (n = 113, Mage = 29.82, SDage = 11.96, nonbinary n = 1, female n = 69, male n = 43). Participants perceived high social support and reported moderate amounts of COVID-19-related racial discrimination, as well as moderate cultural preferences for both host and heritage cultures. Multiple regression analyses indicated that (a) social support from significant others and family significantly predicted variance in depressive symptoms, (b) no independent variable was able to significantly predict variance in anxiety, and (c) social support from the family significantly predicted variance in stress. Participants reported mild amounts of depressive symptoms, normal amounts of stress symptoms, and verging amounts of anxiety symptoms that could be considered mild. This research contributes to the wider literature as one of the first studies to focus on Asian Australian mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic and to empirically support anecdotal evidence of COVID-19-related racial discrimination.

ABSTRACT

After the official closure of the passage to the EU (March 2016), the Western Balkans have become an area of transit for migratory flows overland from the East and the South. This introductory editorial sets the stage of the special issue and presents the contents of the articles which aim at going beyond an understanding of the 'refugee crisis' as a generic external threat to the EU discussing its constructive, changing dimension and exploring the fluid nature of migration trajectories which are shaped by intersecting forms of mobilities and immobilities. Through the adoption of an ethnographic and diachronic perspective, the papers further aim to understand their entanglement with the 1990s memories of migration and therefore with the temporalities of mobility, while also considering the re-emergent securitization of border areas, especially after COVID-19 pandemic, and the ambivalent pushback and hospitality policies that also occur in the Balkan countries along the route.

ABSTRACT

The economic, health and human crisis triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic exacerbated inequalities that were particularly embodied in certain feminized bodies and people living in crowded conditions, for whom being confined in private space poses a risk. The purpose of this article is to analyze the experience of the pandemic undergone by girls and female adolescents in precarious living conditions in the City of Buenos Aires, who participated in the La Caldera social organization. From an ethnographic perspective, I study the creative types of encounter devised by both adult women and girls in the organization to address situations of violence and the ways these encounters stretched the limits of public-private-intimate categories to give rise to an intergenerational feminist practice based on a non-adult form of care I call friendship. (English) [ FROM AUTHOR] La crisis económica, sanitaria y humana que desató la pandemia de covid-19 profundizó desigualdades que se encarnaron especialmente en ciertos cuerpos feminizados y personas que viven en condiciones de hacinamiento, para quienes permanecer recluidos en el espacio privado representa un riesgo. El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar la experiencia de la pandemia que tuvieron niñas y adolescentes que viven una situación de precariedad habitacional en la Ciudad de Buenos Aires y que participan de la organización social La Caldera. Desde un trabajo etnográfico, estudio las creativas formas de encuentro generadas tanto por las adultas como por las niñas de la organización para abordar las situaciones de violencia y los modos en que dichos encuentros tensionaron las categorías públicoprivado-íntimo para darle lugar a una práctica feminista en clave intergeneracional fundada en una forma de cuidado no adultista que denomino “amistad”. (Spanish) [ FROM AUTHOR] A crise econômica, de saúde e humana que desencadeou a pandemia de Covid-19 aprofundou as desigualdades, incorporadas especialmente em certos corpos feminizados e pessoas que vivem em condições de superlotação, para quem permanecer confinado em espaço privado representa um risco. O objetivo deste trabalho é analisar a experiência de pandemia de meninas e adolescentes que vivem em situação precária de moradia na Cidade de Buenos Aires e que participam da organização social La Caldera. A partir dum trabalho etnográfico, estudo as formas criativas de encontro geradas tanto pelas adultas quanto pelas meninas da organização para enfrentar situações de violência e as formas como esses encontros alteraram as categorias público-privado-íntimo para dar origem a uma prática feminista inter-geracional fundada numa forma de cuidado não adulto que chamo de amizade.
