How Gender Shapes the World

Author: Distinguished Professor and Director of the Language and Culture Research Centre Alexandra Y Aikhenvald
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780198723752
Release Date: 2016-10-04
Genre:

This is a book about the multi-faceted notion of gender. Gender differences form the basis for family life, patterns of socialization, distribution of tasks, and spheres of responsibilities. The way gender is articulated shapes the world of individuals, and of the societies they live in. Gender has three faces: Linguistic Gender-the original sense of 'gender'-is a feature of many languages and reflects the division of nouns into grammatical classes or genders (feminine, masculine, neuter, and so on); Natural Gender, or sex, refers to the division of animates into males and females; and Social Gender reflects the social implications and norms of being a man or a woman (or perhaps something else). Women and men may talk and behave differently, depending on conventions within the societies they live in, and their role in language maintenance can also vary. The book focuses on how gender in its many guises is reflected in human languages, how it features in myths and metaphors, and the role it plays in human cognition. Examples are drawn from all over the world, with a special focus on Aikhenvald's extensive fieldwork in Amazonia and New Guinea.

Rethinking Drug Use in Sport

Author: Bob Stewart
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135118471
Release Date: 2014-01-10
Genre: Medical

Drug free sport is an unattainable aspiration. In this critical, paradigm-shifting reappraisal of contemporary drug policy in sport, Bob Stewart and Aaron Smith argue that drug use in sport is an inexorable consequence of the nature, structure and culture of sport itself, and offer a powerful argument for creating a legitimate space for drug use in sport. This book offers a broad ranging overview of the social and commercial pressures impelling drug use, and maps the full historical and social extent of the problem. While there are no simple solutions, as long as drugs use is endemic in wider society the authors argue that a more nuanced and progressive approach is required in order to safeguard and protect the health, social liberty and best interests of athletes and sports people, as well as the value of sport itself.
