​ „Der Mensch mit abweichendem Verhalten ist ein Mensch, auf den diese Bezeichnung erfolgreich angewandt worden ist; abweichendes Verhalten ist Verhalten, das Menschen als solches bezeichnen“: Es ist einer der klassischen Sätze der Devianzsoziologie in einem der Klassiker des Feldes. Howard S. Becker betont fernab von alten und simplistischen Fragen danach, „warum Menschen Regeln brechen“, welche Situationen und welche Prozesse dazu führen, dass Menschen in Positionen geraten, in denen sie als „Regelbrecher“ betitelt werden, wie sie mit diesen Positionen umgehen und sich auch gegen diese wehren. „Außenseiter“ erschien erstmals 1963 in New York und wurde 1981 bei S. Fischer in deutscher Übersetzung publiziert. Seit den frühen neunziger Jahren vergriffen, liegt hier nun eine von Michael Dellwing überarbeitete und herausgegebene Version vor.

Gender Mainstreaming Konzept oder Praxis

Author: Melissa Naase
Publisher: GRIN Verlag
ISBN: 9783640570621
Release Date: 2010

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Padagogik - Schulpadagogik, Note: 1,7, Universitat Paderborn, Veranstaltung: Madchen und Jungen in der Schule, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Wie der Titel meiner Hausarbeit verrat, mochte ich in dieser Arbeit auf das Thema Gender Mainstreaming" eingehen. Gender Mainstreaming, oder auch die synonyme Bezeichnung Gender Mainstream, bezeichnet keine Fallstudie oder Ahnliches, sondern ein politisches Ziel, was vom Bundesministerium fur Familie, Senioren, Frauen und Jugend ins Leben gerufen wurde. In dieser Arbeit werde ich zunachst eine Definition des Begriffes Gender Mainstreaming" und ein Beispiel angeben, bevor ich einen kurzen Uberblick gebe, in welchen Bereichen Gender Mainstreaming in der Schule gefunden werden kann. Dabei gilt meine besondere Aufmerksamkeit der Frage, ob es sich beim Gender Mainstreaming bloss um ein Konzept handelt oder ob dieses auch in die Praxis umgesetzt wird. Wie leicht oder schwer ist die Umsetzung des Gender Mainstreamings? Um Aussagen hieruber treffen zu konnen werde ich eine Umfrage in drei verschiedenen Altersklassen durchfuhren, in denen die Befragten Auskunft uber ihre Erfahrungen mit Aspekten des Gender Mainstreamings zu ihrer Schulzeit geben. In der Umfrage, sowie in dieser Hausarbeit, wird mein Hauptaugenmerk dem Thema Rollentwicklung gelten. Wie erlebten die Befragten dies in Bezug auf das Thema Gender Mainstreaming und welche Auswirkung hatte dies auf ihr spateres Leben? Fuhlen sie sich wohl in ihrer Rolle und haben sie ein starkeres Rollenbewusstsein entwickelt? Inwiefern wird das Ergebnis durch das Konzept Gender Mainstreaming verursacht? Anschliessend werde ich die Antworten der Befragung zu bestimmten Fragen, anhand von Diagrammen auswerten, um einen guten Uberblick zu geben. Meine Vermutung ist, dass es heute eine grossere Tendenz zur Implementierung des Konzeptes Gender Mainstreaming gibt, d.h. dass die jungeren Befragten eher Erfahrungen mit den verschiedenen Aspekten dieses"
