A Case Study of Formative Assessment Using Mobile Applications and Peripherals to Encourage ‘Real-Life’ Critical Analysis in the Biosciences

Daniel J Peart, Orrin J Fairhead & Keyleigh A Stamp
This paper shares a practice of encouraging critical analysis in science students by comparing mobile applications and peripherals to traditional tools to record physiological variables such as heart rate and blood pressure. A progressive series of case studies is described with learning outcomes mapped to the benchmark statement for Bioscience from the United Kingdom's Quality Assurance Agency. A student reflection and staff commentary of the practice is also offered.

Territorial stigmatisation and the negotiation of place

Jørgen Riber Christensen & Kim Toft Hansen
The article addresses the negotiated meaning of notorious places through a consideration of a recent tendency in Danish TV documentaries where marginalized, often peripheral, places are portrayed and debated. Based partly on sociological research about territorial stigmatisation, partly on location studies as a method, the article stresses that inhabitants often contest and contradict the mediated stigmatization of their towns from an ambivalent position. On the one hand, participants in the programs are aware of the...

Alex Phillip Lyng Christiansen & Ole Izard Høyer
The present paper studies anti-feminist discourse within the tumblr-based group Women Against Feminism, and explores how the sentiments of these anti-feminists, as expressed in a multi-modal format, may help to understand the difficulty feminism has with gathering support from its female audience. The textual corpus, gathered through the site, is analysed with methods inspired by Fairclough's 2012 version of CDA, focused on discovering social issues within feminism as it relates to a female audience. By...

Introducing Multi-Stage Qualification for Micro-Level Decision-Making (MSQMLDM) Method in the Energy Sector – A case study of Photovoltaic and Wind Power in Tehran

Sami Saleki
Buildings are consuming approximately 60% of the total electricity supply and 40% of the primary energy consumption around the world. Further, they are responsible for approximately one third of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Various approaches have been adopted to reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions in buildings such as green buildings and low-carbon buildings. In spite of the existing differences among these methods, some similarities are available, especially in using renewable energy. The present...

Dissolving Europe?

Birgit Eriksson
When the performance Living Dead premiered in Denmark in 2016, its reception was characterized by an equal amount of praise and unease. Written and directed by Christian Lollike, Living Dead dealt with the increasing number of refugees coming to Europe from Africa and the Middle East. Controversially, it was a “horror performance” focusing on the fear, anxiety, and potential dissolution of Europe. The article examines the agency of the performance. How does it engage our...

Futures of rural and peripheral areas

Helle Nørgaard
Regional processes have transformed rural and peripheral areas throughout Europe through spatial, functional and social changes and in terms of stagnating economies as well as population decline. In response to this, the so-­‐called 'new rural paradigm' was developed where key elements are a focus on places rather than sectors and on investments rather than subsidies, stressing the need for building on local strengths and qualities. An overall goal within the EU is to pursue economic,...
