Call for Images, Contexts: Understanding People in their Social Worlds. Vol 5 No. 2
CONTEXTS magazine is soliciting images that focus on and illuminate one of the articles listed below. Images must have a clear – and a documented -- connection to the topic of each article.
CHESS, CHEERLEADING, AND CHOPIN: WHAT MATTERS AND WHY: Jay Gabler and Jason Kaufman find that only certain high school activities increase the change of admission to college: participation in varsity team sports, the school band, or student government, and taking lessons in dance or music. Different activities predict admission to a selective college: working on the yearbook or newspaper, belonging to a hobby club, and having parents who visit art museums.
DO MARKETS POISON INTIMACY?. Viviana Zelizer shows how people routinely intermingle intimacy and economic activity. The mistaken idea that each can corrupt the other stem from misconceptions that she terms “separate spheres” and “hostile worlds.”
IS VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ABOUT WOMEN OR ABOUT VIOLENCE? Richard Felson discusses the implications of two approaches to violence against women, the gender perspective and the violence perspective.
THE COMPASSION GAP IN AMERICAN POVERTY POLICY. Fred Block and others argue that concern for the poor is cyclical. The US now is in a “compassion gap,” a time when there is a “divide between our moral commitments and the way that we actually treat those in poverty.” The divide also involves arguments that “public help for the poor” actually harms the poor, and that the root of poverty in immorality.
THE POLITICS OF SMALL THINGS AAND THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT. Jeffrey Goldfarb discusses “small things” important in politics. This includes use of internet sites to connect people.
