Coping with Boundaries

The increase of women s labor force participation, the diversity of family constellations, many men s increased participation in childcare, and the development of flexible working arrangements have stimulated research on the relationship between work and non-work. In this thesis, the interaction between work and non-work is examined in the case of home-based telework, an example of flexible working arrangement. Because of the disappearance or blurring of the traditional boundaries in time and space, the consequences of these working conditions for individuals need to be analyzed. The overall aim of this thesis was to study the interaction between work and non-work in home-based telework and to analyze the following issues:- conflict versus facilitation as related to the segmentation and integration of work/non-work domains- the nature and role of boundaries - the physical and mental aspects of work activities within the domains The results show the importance of boundaries, as they are needed in order to bring structure and legitimacy to the work (carried out in the home/private domain) and to detach from work.

Deriving Satisfaction
68,00 € *

In "Deriving Satisfaction", a "bottom-up" approach is pursued in order to understand the underlying dimensions that inform individuals' satisfaction with work, leisure, family and community, as well as with life overall. Need gratification and affective experience within each of these domains are conceptualised as underlying facets of domain satisfactions, which, in turn, are seen to inform life satisfaction. Highlighted are models relating need gratification, affective experience and satisfaction with work, leisure, family and community, as well as models illustrating the contribution of satisfaction with each domain to overall life satisfaction. Also highlighted are differences between men and women in need importance, need gratification, domain centrality, and domain satisfaction, as well as gender differences in models of work, leisure, family, community, and life satisfaction.

Gender relations as a basis for varietal selection
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book examines the influence of gender relations and gender bounded production spaces on varietal selection of Yucatec Maya staple crops maize (Zea mays L.) and squash (Cucurbita spp.) in the village of Yaxcabá in the Yucatan Peninsula, Southeast Mexico. Results indicate that the traditional production spaces of homegardens and agricultural fields (milpas) are complementary gendered domains of varietal maintenance for both crops although with different cropping patterns, while a new space, of land allocated to some families for future residential construction (terreno) is in the meantime a jointly worked agricultural domain. Women s labour, knowledge and preferences predominate in post-harvest processes such as food processing and preparation. Fieldwork revealed that neither men nor women are independent decision-makers, planning what to grow, where and in what amounts, but that in most aspects of farming the interests of both are accommodated within the household s production spaces.

This innovative work explores the historical consciousness of a people caught between two life-worlds. The Duna of Papua New Guinea have developed their own views of historical change, expressed in a fusion of two elements: indigenous ideas of cosmological cycles, and introduced Christian notions of world’s end. The book explores how the formation of historical consciousness is constituted differently for men and women. A central focus is the fluid social environment of the Duna, where new contests about gendered personhood and agency emerge in the context of changing power relationships and arenas of cooperation between the sexes. The author reveals the links between gender and history and uses a gendered analysis as a lens of historical perception for viewing a wide range of topics. In the process, gender becomes “an idiom of thinking” that permeates all social domains, including kinship, marriage, and residence. The theme of consumption emerges forcefully throughout the book, engaging such crucial issues as gender and inequality, constructions of personhood, and the influence of historical change on social life. The sphere of consumption is also where cultural projections and social practice meet in the powerful domain of notions about female witchcraft, since female agency and consumption wishes form the basis for male fear of witches. The author explains how, in circumstances of historical indeterminacy, there has been a shift in the semantic platforms on which Duna witchcraft notions are grounded, a shift that has led to a process of symbolic reconfiguration. The book contributes to emerging trends in anthropological research in three ways. Ethnographically, it presents a transformed picture of people whose lives were examined by earlier, male ethnographers in terms of Marxist or sociobiological models. Analytically, it uses new perspectives to provide a more interpretive and nuanced account of gender relations. Theoretically, it explores the potential value of the theme of historical consciousness for an anthropology concerned with questions of change and with people’s perceptions about their past and their future.
