    Leading ladies: discursive constructions of women leaders in the UK media

    Feminist Media Studies, no. Published online: 10 July 2019

    2019

    DOI: 10.1080/14680777.2019.1640266

    Abstract anzeigen

    Women continue to be economically disadvantaged and under-represented in positions of power and leadership. A discursive disjunction between cultural and media representations of women and leadership has been implicated in these continuing inequalities. We address this issue through an analysis of the ways in which prominent women leaders were portrayed in a UK radio series, BBC Radio 4’s “Profile” broadcast between July 2011 and July 2013. Verbatim transcripts of 12 broadcasts featuring women were analysed within a critical feminist framework, to explore the ways in which these women leaders were discursively constructed. Our analysis explicates three constructions of “women leaders”: as “traditionally” feminine; as having to balance “masculine” and “feminine” attributes; and as exceptional women who may nevertheless fail. We conclude that the impact of equality legislation continues to be limited while androcentric norms prevail and that we therefore need more gynocentric ways of imagining women leaders.

    Young people’s perceptions of fat counsellors: “How can THAT help me?”

    Qualitative Research in Psychology, vol. 16, no. 1, pp. 34-53

    2019

    DOI: 10.1080/14780887.2018.153638

    Abstract anzeigen

    Being fat is widely recognised as a stigmatised identity which disproportionately impacts women, both personally and professionally. Women are numerically dominant as therapy practitioners, and we use this group to explore the ways a “fat counsellor” is imagined in the context of counselling. A qualitative story completion task, about a woman starting therapy, was presented to 203 British young people ages 15–24. Participants were 75% female, 88% white, 93% heterosexual, and 98% able-bodied. The story stem did not specify the sex of the counsellor, who was identified as fat; the vast majority of stories assumed the counsellor was female. Overall, fatness was perceived as negatively affecting therapy and the counsellor’s professional credibility because fatness was equated with a lack of psychological health, which rendered fat counsellors professionally “unfit.” This finding extends the literature on “weight bias” in professional settings and has implications for counsellors of all body sizes.

    Tomorrow is the start of the rest of their life – so who cares about health? Exploring constructions of weight-loss motivations and health using story completion

    Qualitative Research in Psychology, vol. 16, no. 1, pp. 54-73

    2019

    DOI: 10.1080/14780887.2018.1536385

    Abstract anzeigen

    In Western societies, health is closely associated with body weight and weight loss, achieved through individual health behaviour. I examined such associations in constructions of weight-loss motivations and health in stories generated using the novel method of story completion. The story stem featured either a female or male protagonist deciding to lose weight; 148 women and 22 men (ages 18–24) provided stories in response. A social constructionist thematic analysis identified five themes: health as clothing size and means to an end; weight-loss activity as good for every woman; tomorrow is going to be the start of the rest of their life; tell me when I’m okay — it’s not about wellbeing; and weight loss as signifier of the “true self.” Considering the adverse social and psychological consequences reflected in the stories and the longstanding elusiveness of successful weight-loss methods, I support calls to review the dominant weight-focused approach to public health.

    Probabilistic evaluation of the energetics upper bound during the transition phase of an unprotected loss of flow accident for a sodium cooled fast reactor by using a Phenomenological Relationship Diagram

    Nuclear Engineering and Design, vol. 341, no. 146-154

    2019

    DOI: 10.1016/j.nucengdes.2018.11.004

    Abstract anzeigen

    One of the main research goals of the GEN-IV systems is enhancing their safety compared with the former Sodium-Cooled Fast Reactor (SFR) designs. A key issue is the capability of accidents prevention as well as of demonstrating that their consequences do not violate the safety criteria. In order to fulfill such requirements, risk analyses of severe core disruptive accidents are performed. Since the beginning of the SFR development, Hypothetical Core Disruptive Accidents (HCDAs) have played an outstanding role. Numerous safety analyses have been performed for developing and licensing past SFR designs and nowadays a large database of results is available. In particular, a large amount of results of the mechanistic SIMMER-II and SIMMER-III/IV analyses for various core designs and different power classes is available at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The current paper describes the probabilistic approach based on the Phenomenological Relationship Diagram (PRD), which is used to evaluate the Probability Distribution Function (PDF) of the thermal energy release during the transition phase of an unprotected loss of flow accident scenario for a SFR. The technique allows taking into account the mechanistic nature of the accident scenario. In fact, the available results of the mechanistic analyses of HCDAs in SFRs are used to assess the PDFs of the dominant phenomena affecting the thermal energy release, which are propagated in the PRD by employing a Monte Carlo method.

    Magnetic films for electromagnetic actuation in MEMS switches

    Microsystem Technologies, vol. 24, no. 4, pp. 1987-1994

    2018

    DOI: 10.1007/s00542-017-3595-2

    Abstract anzeigen

    This paper investigates the fabrication of magnetic films via electroplating to be applied into electromagnetic actuated micro electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) switches. Cobalt and nickel films (1 µm thicknesses) were deposited on gold coated silicon substrates via electrochemical deposition. Different deposition conditions were investigated, regarding temperature and deposition voltage. The films morphologies were characterized via atomic force microscopy, while the magnetic properties of the films were characterized via vibrating sample magnetometer measurements. In order to evaluate the integration of these magnetic films into MEMS switches with low energy consumption, a mathematical model was developed and the results show that these films can be applied into efficient actuation with reduced power dissipation.

    Investigation on upper bounds of recriticality energetics of hypothetical core disruptive accidents in sodium cooled fast reactors

    Nuclear Engineering and Design, vol. 326, no. January, pp. 392-402

    2018

    DOI: 10.1016/j.nucengdes.2017.11.002

    Abstract anzeigen

    One key research goal for GEN-IV systems is an enhanced safety compared to the former Sodium Cooled Fast Reactor concepts. A key issue is built-in safety and the capability to prevent accidents and to demonstrate that their consequences do not violate aimed-at safety criteria. From the beginning of SFR development the Core Disruptive Accident (CDA) has played an outstanding role in the safety assessment. Under core disruptive accident conditions with core melting the fuel might compact, prompt criticality might be achieved and a severe nuclear power excursion with mechanical energy release might be the consequence. Numerous safety analyses accompanied the development and the licensing procedures of past fast reactor projects. A central issue of all analyses was the assessment of a realistic upper bound of energetics especially related to recriticalities in disrupted core configurations. Striving for an even higher safety level for next generation reactors a new strategy focused on the development and introduction of preventive and mitigative measures both to reduce the chance for a severe accident development and to mitigate its energetics. For assessing the effectiveness of these measures the knowledge of the CDA behavior is essential. In this context and on basis of new code developments, new experimental insights and extended studies for many reactor types of different power classes over the recent years, the issue of a realistic upper bound of energetics of the late core melt phases is again of relevance. Of special interest is the identification of natural and intrinsic mechanisms that limit the escalation of energetics. The current paper deals with these issues and tries to add supportive facts on the limits of CDA energetics. The evaluation of results of mechanistic SIMMER-II and SIMMER-III/IV analyses performed for various core designs and power classes and specific model case studies in 2D and 3D geometry indeed supports the idea of a limit of recriticality energetics. Intrinsic mechanisms exist, which limit the escalation energetics even in case of a strong blockage confinement suppressing any fuel discharge and allowing on-going sloshing recriticalities. In the light of the available information and taking into account relevant scientific publications and studies by the international community on the subject, one could conclude that an upper bound for energetics in the range given in the paper can be deduced.

    On the impact of quotas and decision rules in collective bargaining.

    European Economic Review, vol. 100, no. November, pp. 175-192

    2017

    DOI: 10.1016/j.euroecorev.2017.08.004

    Abstract anzeigen

    We conduct a novel type of multi-person one-shot game that reflects important aspects of collective bargaining. In all treatments a proposer has to divide a pie among herself and two groups of three recipients each. She cannot discriminate within, but across groups. A committee with representatives from one or both groups takes acceptance decisions. In a 2 × 2 design we vary (i) representation in the decision committee (one vs. both groups) and (ii) the decision rule (unanimity vs. majority voting). We find that (i) representation of a group in the committee is crucial for receiving a significant share, (ii) proposals are balanced only if both groups have veto power, (iii) negotiations often fail if the decision environment gives insufficient guidance on what an appropriate proposal is, and (iv) non-binding communication substantially reduces rejection rates and proposer shares.

    Modeling Vaporization, Gas Generation and Venting in Li-Ion Battery Cells with a Dimethyl Carbonate Electrolyte

    Electrochemical Society Journal, vol. 164, no. 9

    2017

    Abstract anzeigen

    This paper presents a mathematical model developed for predicting the temperature-pressure behavior and gas generation inside 18650 LCO/Graphite cells with a DMC (Dimethyl Carbonate) electrolyte. The cell was modeled using oven heating conditions, and the analysis was done at time intervals around the venting event. The paper also presents the thermodynamic property table for DMC, as extracted from different resources and calculated using various assumptions. The model was developed by deriving the energy balance for an unsteady-flow control volume and applying the isentropic flow equations corresponding to the venting of gas. The results show that the model fails to predict the pressure measured experimentally when no gas is generated inside. When adding the gas generation due to pre-venting reactions occurring, the model can predict the pressure profile measured experimentally.

    Plastic Reactor Suitable for High Pressure and Supercritical Fluid Electrochemistry

    Journal of The Electrochemical Society, vol. 164, no. 6

    2017

    Abstract anzeigen

    The paper describes a reactor suitable for high pressure, particularly supercritical fluid, electrochemistry and electrodeposition at pressures up to 30 MPa at 115°C. The reactor incorporates two key, new design concepts; a plastic reactor vessel and the use of o-ring sealed brittle electrodes. These two innovations widen what can be achieved with supercritical fluid electrodeposition. The suitability of the reactor for electroanalytical experiments is demonstrated by studies of the voltammetry of decamethylferrocene in supercritical difluromethane and for electrodeposition is demonstrated by the deposition of Bi. The application of the reactor to the production of nanostructures is demonstrated by the electrodeposition of ∼80 nm diameter Te nanowires into an anodic alumina on silicon template. Key advantages of the new reactor design include reduction of the number of wetted materials, particularly glues used for insulating electrodes, compatability with reagents incompatible with steel, compatability with microfabricated planar multiple electrodes, small volume which brings safety advantages and reduced reagent useage, and a significant reduction in experimental time.

    Once upon a time...: Qualitative story completion methods

    Collecting qualitative data. A practical guide to textual, media and virtual techniques, Cambridge, United Kingdom; New York, NY

    ISBN: 9781107054974

    Abstract anzeigen

    This chapter introduces the story completion (SC) method of collecting qualitative data, a novel technique that offers intriguing potential to the qualitative researcher. Since the method is new to qualitative research, it has fewer published research studies than some of the other methods covered in this book. For this reason, the chapter aims not only to provide a description of the method and recommendations for how best to use it, but also to explore some of the unresolved theoretical and practical questions about SC. These questions have been identified by the chapter authors, who comprise the Story Completion Research Group. We are a group of researchers who have come together to share our experience of using and further developing the method (see Box 3.1). Our view is that SC has the potential to ‘reach the parts that other methods cannot reach’ (Pope & Mays, 1995); it therefore has advantages over and above being enticingly resource-lite in terms of data collection, although that in itself is a sizeable benefit.
