1. Carmichael, Richard. Becoming vegetarian and vegan : rhetoric, ambivalence and repression in self-narrative.

Degree: PhD, 2002, Loughborough University

This thesis takes a discursive-rhetorical approach to becoming vegetarian and vegan. Previous studies have pointed to complexity and variety in definitions, types and criteria of vegetarianism, making `objective' studies difficult. Meat is also one of the most highly prized but ambivalently valued foodstuffs. The cultural and social meanings of diet in terms of `identities' are well established but the rhetorical approach taken here explores identity as accomplished through social practices of accounting. Rather than seeing variation and disagreement as problematic, analytic focus is on the complex and varied construction of social categories/identities in accounts and the practices of justification and criticism. Cultural ambivalences are recast as dilemmas of identity and account-giving. Diary and serial interview `case-material' was collected from 23 new and aspiring vegetarians and vegans. Participants' accounts are shown to handle a number of dilemmatic aspects of vegetarian/vegan identity; notably, a dilemma of moral superiority and a dilemma of abstinence. These dilemmas are discussed in terms of stereotype-avoidance, commitment, and the co-construction of self and Other. Such identity-management is argued to fundamentally involve relationships. Seen as contexts, texts and resources for account-giving, relationships highlight both local and biographical elements in self-construction, the inter-dependence of selfnarratives/ identities and the need for managing them, especially when identities are changed. A number of other rhetorical resources and practices used in the management of identity are also drawn out, including the discourses of lapsing, desire and temptation and accounts of suppression and repression. The management of dilemmas of accounting through presenting the self as ambivalent, conflicted and divided is underlined. Following recent work by Billig (e. g., 1999a), ambivalence and repression are further considered as discursive activities as well as claims. This leads to a discussion of identity, contradiction and repression in terms of prohibition, desire and transgression. It is suggested that becoming vegetarian or vegan may be characterised as a matter of narrating autobiographical change and the continued negotiation of various dilemmas of identity. Social psychological theories of identity and identity change are criticised and the importance of argumentation, ambivalence and commitment are emphasised. The value of a more `populated' case-study perspective within discursive psychology is also stressed and the study of discursive avoidance and repression is illustrated and recommended.

3. Pedro, Paulo Martins. A trajetória do professor por entre desafios e paradoxos : histórias de insensatez.

Degree: 2014, RCAAP

O tempo, como o mundo, tem dois hemisférios: um superior e visível, que é o passado, outro inferior e invisível, que é o futuro. No meio de um e outro hemisfério ficam os horizontes do tempo, que são estes instantes do presente que imos vivendo, onde o passado se termina e o futuro começa. Padre António Vieira, História do Futuro, (1718) O presente trabalho resultou de um percurso de vida e profissional, que se foi construindo ao sabor dos acontecimentos e que culminou nas aprendizagens e reflexão, que foram despoletadas com a frequência do mestrado em Ciências da Educação, especialização em Administração e Organização Escolar. O título do relatório, A Trajetória do professor por entre desafios e paradoxos - histórias de insensatez enquadra-se nas vivências e experiências do autor enquanto profissional da educação, num tempo marcado por mudanças profundas nas escolas e nas competências dos professores. O trabalho desenvolve-se em três capítulos. No primeiro, procedo ao enquadramento teórico das problemáticas abordadas, realçando o valor da atitude reflexiva dos professores no exercício da sua profissão, facilitadora de um processo formativo individual que parte de si, das suas vivências e reflexões. Neste âmbito são de salientar, pela sua pertinência, as narrativas autobiográficas e de reflexão para a mudança de práticas, reconhecendo-se que é através das histórias de vida que se identificam novas propostas de formação para os professores e para a profissão docente (Nóvoa, 2007). No segundo capítulo faço a análise reflexiva da minha prática profissional através do relato das diversas escolas por onde passei, procurando salientar os momentos marcantes, positivos e negativos, da carreira e qual a sua importância para o meu desenvolvimento profissional. No âmbito do terceiro capítulo destaco alguns casos/dilemas mais marcantes do meu percurso e as soluções que pus em prática para os solucionar. É um trabalho narrativo das dinâmicas sofridas e usufruídas que contribuíram, indelevelmente, para o meu desenvolvimento profissional e para a (re)construção da minha identidade profissional. A elucidação e interpretação do meu percurso profissional concretiza-se à luz dos quadros teóricos das Ciências da Educação. Pretende-se assim, uma abordagem, teoricamente sustentada, sobre a minha vivência, enquanto professor de diversas escolas do ensino básico e secundário, no ensino público português. Essa vivência que decorre desde a entrada no ensino, em 1988 até ao momento actual, foi marcada por muitas “pedras no caminho”, momentos marcantes da minha profissão docente. Assim, a presente narrativa salienta a descrição de dilemas/casos que foram surgindo no meu quotidiano, onde procuro identificar os momentos marcantes, positivos e negativos da minha vida profissional e o modo como me senti na escola, no pressuposto de que as histórias/narrativas dos professores são fundamentais para a compreensão do modo como os mesmos vivenciam, sentem e gerem o seu dia-a-dia na escola. De acordo com Hargreaves & Fullan (1992) a carreira de um… Advisors/Committee Members: Alves, José Joaquim Ferreira Matias.
