This study reviews the Global South-based approaches to the concept of financialization, which have been on the agenda for a while. In this context, the applications of the concept to the case of Brazil are discussed in light of arguments on contemporary capitalism and from an historical perspective. As a result, the portrait of Brazil as a country of the Global South indicates that it is reasonable to adopt a skeptical approach to the inferences that financialization is a new phenomenon regarding the period from the 1980s to the present, considering the financialization studies together with the further prevalent theoretical frameworks.


Convergence Error and Higher-Order Sensitivity Estimations
Eyi, Sinan (2012-10-01)
The aim of this study is to improve the accuracy of the finite-difference sensitivities of differential equations solved by iterative methods. New methods are proposed to estimate the convergence error and higher-order sensitivities. The convergence error estimation method is based on the eigenvalue analysis of linear systems, but it can also be used for nonlinear systems. The higher-order sensitivities are calculated by differentiating the approximately constructed differential equation with respect to the...
E-government transformation success: An assessment methodology and the preliminary results
Iskender, Gökhan; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi (2013-07-15)
Purpose – This study is an updated and enhanced version of the study named “Building a methodology to assess the e-government transformation success” presented by I˙skender and O¨ zkan in the 18th Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS 2012). The main purpose of this study is to explain the development of the methodology presented in the previous study in detail, but as an add-on to the previous one, it also applies the developed methodology on the real data collected from Turkish public institut...
Framing Open Design through Theoretical Concepts and Practical Applications: A Systematic Literature Review
Bakırlıoğlu, Yekta; Kohtala, Cindy (2019-09-01)
This study reports on the results of a systematic literature review on 'open design' in academic fields including and beyond design and HCI. The review investigates how studies are framed as open design and open-source design (including 'open hardware'): how researchers contribute to conceptual theorizing about open design or study its practical operationalization, in do-it-yourself 'making,' manufacturing and practices in-between these domains. Most of the papers reviewed were empirical studies from divers...
Rethinking diaspora as heterotopia in works of Anita Deasi, Kamala Markandaya and Meera Syal
Okuroğlu Özün, Şule; Sönmez, Margaret Jeanne M.; Department of English Literature (2013)
The aim of this study is to offer an insight into discussions of spatiotemporal dimensions of diasporic subjectivity by making use of Foucauldian heterotopia, heterochrony, power and self technologies. This study analyses diasporic subjectification in Bye-Bye Blackbird by Anita Desai, The Nowhere Man by Kamala Markandaya, and Anita and Me by Meera Syal from the conceptual perspective of Michel Foucault’s heterotopia. After a thorough discussion, considerations of the roots of diaspora, heterotopic diaspora ...
End User Evaluation of the FAIR4Health Data Curation Tool
Gencturk, Mert; Teoman, Alper; Alvarez-Romero, Celia; Martinez-Garcia, Alicia; Parra-Calderon, Carlos Luis; Poblador-Plou, Beatriz; Löbe, Matthias; Sinaci, A Anil (2021-05-27)
The aim of this study is to build an evaluation framework for the user-centric testing of the Data Curation Tool. The tool was developed in the scope of the FAIR4Health project to make health data FAIR by transforming them from legacy formats into a Common Data Model based on HL7 FHIR. The end user evaluation framework was built by following a methodology inspired from the Delphi method. We applied a series of questionnaires to a group of experts not only in different roles and skills, but also from various...
