  1. Misallocation, Education Expansion and Wage Inequality

    Koutmeridis, Theodore
    This study offers a unified explanation for the perplexing fact that the education premium rises more for low-experienced workers, while the experience premium increases mainly for low-educated labor. The interaction of signaling, employer learning and credit constraints resolves this puzzle. When higher education expands, talented individuals acquire skills and abandon the uneducated pool. This decreases unskilled-inexperienced wages and boosts inequality, highlighting that talent misallocation compresses wage dispersion. This explanation fits US data, indicating that for three decades the rise in the education and the experience premium coincided with falling unskilled-inexperienced wages, while skilled or experienced wages remained relatively flat.

  6. Historical Re-creation of 19th c. Turkey Red [Oral Presentation]

    Shahid, Mohammad; Quye, Anita
    Turkey red (TR) textiles, bright red cotton produced through a complex multi-step process highly admired for its brilliancy and superior colourfastness, were major economic commodities in 19th c Scotland. A unique illustration of 19th c. dyeing technology and chemical complexity, the TR dyeing process has remained mysterious throughout. TR is built on cotton through a series of treatments using oil, alum, dung, blood, tannins, anthraquinone dyes and variety of other stuffs. The process was complex, repetitive and expensive; however, the product enjoyed huge commercial success in 19th c. Samples of these highly durable textiles can be seen in many collections...

  7. Dilemmas in Practically Engaged Scholarship: Too Much of a Risk or a Matter of Safeguards?

    Beirne, Martin
    Arguments for an applied academic activism on work are capturing serious attention. After a period of evident neglect across the academy, social scientists are rediscovering principled traditions of scholarship that connect research with practical efforts to anticipate and promote genuinely enriching and empowering ways of managing and organizing work. Rebalancing scholarship along these lines will be less than straightforward, however. Personal and professional dilemmas are attached to practical projects, and these range beyond the issues and concerns that exercised academics in the past. Anxieties previously centred on academic freedom and independence from commercial pressures. There were fears about managerializing debates...

  8. The Origins of Communication Revisited

    Arranz, Jordi; Noble, Jason; Silverman, Eric
    Quinn (2001) sought to demonstrate that communication between simulated agents could be evolved without pre-defined communication channels. Quinn’s work was exciting because it showed the potential for ALife models to look at the real origin of communication; however, the work has never been replicated. In order to test the generality of Quinn’s result we use a similar task but a completely different agent architecture. We find that qualitatively similar behaviours emerge, but it is not clear whether they are genuinely communicative. We extend Quinn’s work by adding perceptual noise and internal state to the agents in order to promote ritualization...

  11. Living Working, Playing with Water: Exploring Perceptions of Water in the Urban Environment Through Creative Practice

    Donald, Minty
    The systems, processes and infrastructure through which water is managed— particularly in drainage, waste water and drinking water schemes— are often incomprehensible and invisible to the general public, leading to gaps in knowledge about how water operates in our daily lives. This fosters ignorance, powerlessness and irresponsible practices, which are significant factors in escalating water-related environmental issues such as flooding, drought and pollution. The project, Living, Working, Playing with Water, used creative practice as a tool to address these gaps in knowledge— with a specific focus on sustainable drainage systems (SuDS). The decision to focus on SuDS was taken in response...

  12. Linear Finite-Field Deterministic Networks with Many Sources and One Destination

    Butt, M. Majid; Caire, Giuseppe; Müller, Ralf R.
    We find the capacity region of linear finite-field deterministic networks with many sources and one destination. Nodes in the network are subject to interference and broadcast constraints, specified by the linear finite-field deterministic model. Each node can inject its own information as well as relay other nodes' information. We show that the capacity region coincides with the cut-set region. Also, for a specific case of correlated sources we provide necessary and sufficient conditions for the sources transmissibility. Given the "deterministic model" approximation for the corresponding Gaussian network model, our results may be relevant to wireless sensor networks where the sensing...

  16. Work in Progress: What Can We Learn About How to Improve Uptake of Bowel Cancer Screening From Higher Rates of Uptake in Breast and Cervical Screening Programmes?

    Kotzur, Marie; Wyke, Sally; Macdonald, Sara; Steele, R; Weller, D; Campbell, C; Crighton, E; Mccowan, Colin; Robb, Kathryn
    Background: Screening can reduce deaths from cervical, bowel and breast cancer if the people invited participate. Among women in Scotland, uptake of screening is 58% for bowel, compared to 74% for breast, 71% for cervical. Little research has examined why bowel screening fails to achieve the uptake rates of breast and cervical screening. The relative ‘newness’ of the bowel screening programme does not appear to explain the low participation rate. It is therefore important to understand why bowel screening is failing to achieve the uptake rates of breast and cervical screening. Aims: This study aims to compare women’s accounts of the...

  18. Involving Future Users in Developing Cancer Screening Interventions: a Case Study

    Kotzur, Marie; Wyke, Sally; Macdonald, Sara; Steele, R.; Weller, D.; Campbell, C.; Crighton, E.; Mccowan, Colin; Robb, Kathryn
    Background: Discussing research findings with future users of colorectal cancer screening provides an opportunity to prioritise ideas for further research and intervention development. This interactive session will present a case study of an effort to disseminate research results to future users of colorectal screening and explore possible strategies for intervention. The audience will be invited to engage in group work to reflect on the case study, their own experience, and generate ideas for future research and dissemination. Methods: Women (n=12, 52-61 years) and men (n=16, 50-69 years) who had not previously completed colorectal cancer screening participated in four single-sex focus...

  20. Silent Tyranny of Code? Performativity, Encoding and Branding Work

    Morgan-Thomas, Anna
    The current project contributes to the emergent work on the ‘marketer research’ (Cochoy, 2011; Cochoy and Dubuisson-Quellier, 2013; Jacobi et al. 2015). Situated within a broader context of market studies (Araujo, Finch, & Kjellberg, 2010; Kjellberg & Helgesson, 2006; Zwick & Cayla, 2011), there is growing interest in the work of various market professionals, including human and non-human actors, implicated in creating, maintaining and disrupting markets (Beauvisage et al., 2012; Cochoy and Dubuisson-Quellier, 2013; Jacobi et al. 2015). Although the scholarship has examined a broad range of actors (e.g. Karpik, 2000, 2011; Mallard, 2000), only limited attention has been devoted...
