1. Araújo, Lorena Alves de Souza. Efeitos de consequências culturais sobre estimativas de controle em trios e sobre o responder individual em uma tarefa com pontos não contingentes .

Degree: Mestrado, Psicologia Experimental, 2014, University of São Paulo

Quando colocadas em situações em que os eventos ambientais são independentes do responder, pessoas podem desenvolver uma expectativa inapropriada de que têm controle comportamental sobre o ambiente. Esse fenômeno é conhecido como ilusão de controle. Este estudo investigou os efeitos de consequências culturais sobre as estimativas de controle apresentadas consensualmente por um trio de participantes, que trabalharam em uma tarefa em que pontos foram apresentados independentemente do responder. 38 universitários de diversos cursos de graduação participaram de 2 experimentos: no Experimento 1, quatro Trios realizaram a tarefa experimental e no Experimento 2, duas Culturas envolveram a substituição de participantes. Duas atividades caracterizavam um ciclo completo: (a) em primeiro lugar, uma tarefa individual na qual pontos foram apresentados na tela do computador, em um esquema múltiplo com componentes de tempo variável e extinção (mult VT EXT). Abaixo do rótulo de pontos, havia um retângulo, que mudava de cor a depender do componente do esquema, manipulável pelos participantes por meio de respostas de teclar na barra de espaço do teclado. (b) Em segundo lugar, após o término da tarefa no computador, os participantes responderam consensualmente sobre o controle que tinham na produção dos pontos em uma escala que variou entre depender pouco (0) e depender muito (10). Consequências culturais foram apresentadas a depender da estimativa de controle e da condição vigente. Na condição A, a consequência cultural foi apresentada contingente a estimativas de controle entre 7 e 10. Já na condição B, a consequência cultural foi contingente a estimativas entre 0 e 3. Os resultados encontrados contribuem tanto para os estudos sobre seleção cultural como os que investigam a ilusão de controle, já que demonstram a seleção de estimativas de controle e efeitos da consequência cultural no responder individual, bem como evidenciam a independência entre comportamento verbal e não verbal em uma situação na qual eventos ambientais são apresentados independentemente do responder

When people are exposed to situations with non-contingent events, they may develop an erroneous expectation of having comportamental control over the environment. This phenomenon is known as illusion of control. This study investigated the effects of cultural consequences on the estimate of control presented consensually by a trio of participants who has taken part in a task in which points were presented independently of what they made. 38 undergraduate students from a variety of courses participated in two experiments: in Experiment 1, four trios completed an experimental task, while in Experiment 2 there were two Cultures involving replacement of participants. Two activities characterized a complete cycle: (a) first of all, a basic individuak task, in which points were presented on the computer screen in a multiple schedule with variable time and extinction components (mult VT EXT). Bellow the points counter, there was a retangle manipulated by the participants…

2. Dixon, Anthony. Estimating the private consumption benefits derived from the college football game experience.

Degree: PhD, Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management, 2009, Clemson University

The purpose of this study is to estimate the private consumption benefits derived from the college football game experience and determine whether these benefits would justify the utilization of public subsidies for construction projects of university sports facilities. A systematic sampling strategy was used to collect email addresses from individuals visiting Clemson, South Carolina to participate in the Clemson University home football game experience. The study's response rate was 56.9% with a sample size of n=769. Results reveal South Carolina residents participating in the Clemson home football game experience derive 168.80 per person per game in private consumption benefits (i.e., consumer surplus). Multiplying the estimated private consumption benefits derived by South Carolina residents by the total number of South Carolina residents that visit Clemson, South Carolina to attend Clemson home football games, results in an aggregate value of 75 million in private consumption benefits for the 2008 football season.

3. Brykczynski, Paul. Political Murder and the Victory of Ethnic Nationalism in Interwar Poland.

Degree: PhD, History, 2013, University of Michigan

This dissertation examines the impact of the 1922 election and murder of Gabriel Narutowicz, the first president of Poland, on the discursive field of Polish nationalism. Narutowicz was seen as an illegitimate president by the nationalist right, and murdered by a nationalist sympathizer because of the support offered to him by Jewish, Ukrainian, and German deputies during the election. Using a blend of cultural, intellectual, and microhistorical approaches, the dissertation demonstrates that the most important shifts in the discursive field of Polish nationalism in the early 20th century occurred in response to specific, contingent, political events. The election and murder of Narutowicz constituted the most important in a series of these events. By examining the pre- and post- assassination discourse of both left- and right-wing Polish thinkers and politicians, the dissertation shows that the murder, and the street violence associated with it, propelled the left to abandon its “civic” vision of the imagined community of the nation. At the same time, despite suffering a temporary setback, the nationalist right quickly reaffirmed its commitment to anti-Semitism and further radicalized its “ethnic” nationalism. Therefore, the murder of Narutowicz played an instrumental role in the transformation of the discursive structures of Polish nationalism between 1918 and 1939, and can help explain the ultimate victory of an ethnic and anti-Semitic nationalism in interwar Poland.
