Immigrant psychology and mental health have become of interest to academics, mental health professionals, and governments, which is not surprising because issues of immigration have important social, political, economic, and psychological dimensions. Boulanger (2004) notes that although psychoanalysis was created and dominated for a long time by immigrants, the number of psychoanalytic authors addressing immigration remains small, and the contributions themselves are relatively recent. I contend that unform...
Prospective duration judgments: The role of temporality and executive demands of concurrent tasks
Duzcu, Haul; Hohenberger, Annette Edeltraud (Elsevier BV, 2014-03-01)
It is known that concurrent non-temporal tasks shorten reproduced temporal durations in prospective duration judgments. Two experiments were carried out, one comparing a concurrent temporal task to a minimally demanding concurrent task (Experiment 1) and one comparing an executive concurrent (Simon) task with a less demanding non-executive concurrent task (Experiment 2). An effect of the concurrent task type on temporal reproductions was found. Furthermore, a duration length effect was found, where longer d...

Based on 222 qualitative interviews conducted through a large ethnographic research project on transformed industrial landscapes in six countries, the main argument of the article is threefold. First, landscapes and narratives about past and present landscapes are relevant to the identity of class; second, the transformation of industrial landscapes is most emphatically expressed by nostalgia; third, the narratives are a transnationally constitutive element of class identity. The narratives of workers about...
