Defending the value of daycare workers

Assistant Professor Sandra Chang-Kredl's positions from a paper published in the Journal of Media and Cultural Studies are discussed in an interview with La Presse+. Chang-Kredl talks about how the needs of early childhood educators are rarely at the forefront of public dialogue and proposes that this reality highlights a number of key issues in terms of gender equality and the role of parents versus the role of educators. She suggests that this also explains the shortfalls in terms of remuneration and training and underscores the important role of policy in valuing the work of early childhood educators.

Newest incarnation of Attarian & Yogurtian's Survisor Stories essay

An essay by Hourig Attarian co-written with Hermig Yogurtian several years ago (Survivor stories, surviving narratives) about their encounter with a woman called Pergrouhi and how it triggered other stories in their lives, has now appeared in Turkish translation in an online Turkish Feminist journal titled Feminist Approaches in Culture and Politics. It is amazing how many incarnations this story and this specific essay has had, translated into French, now into Turkish, turned into a play, had several performances by the two authors (example at the Femmes et exils conference in Ottawa in 2003) and has opened up a new dialogue on how to stage difficult memories, started the quest into many other research-creation pieces and still going strong.

Mediating Sibling Rivarly

A recent study by Assistant Professor Holly Recchia, co-led by graduate students Amandeep Rajput and Stephanie Peccia, has revealed that sibling relations can be somewhat ambivalent, eliciting at times strong feelings at times positive and other times negative. The study further suggests that children raised in family settings with a significant level of conflict tend to more easily ascribe ill will to the behaviours of their siblings during conflict situations. Dr. Recchia suggests that parents acting as mediators, rather than judge and jury, can help children learn conflict-management skills and to help better understand the perspective of the other in conflict situations.

Are we Passing Down our Math Anxiety?

Associate Professor Helena Osana talks to CJAD radio Montreal's Andrew Carter about a new study in the Journal of Psychological Science that suggests that parents with math anxiety can pass these fears down to their kids. Though it's unclear just how the transfer takes place, Osana suggests that developing strategies to manage anxiety and avoid negative messaging about math can help reduce this anxiety transfer. Listen to the podcast interview (segment begins at 36:55).
