    Reassessing the Role of the Biomedical Research Ethics Committee.Merryn Ekberg - 2012 - Journal of Academic Ethics 10 (4):335-352.
    The role of the Research Ethics Committee (REC) in the design, conduct and dissemination of scientific research is still evolving and many important questions remain unanswered. Hence, the aim of this paper is to address some of the uncertainty that exists around the role and responsibilities of RECs and to discuss some of the controversy that exists over the criteria that RECs should follow when evaluating a research proposal. The discussion is organised around five of the major roles currently performed (...)

    Exploring the Design, Delivery and Content of a ‘Bioethics for the Biosciences’ Module: An Empirical Study.Merryn Ekberg - 2016 - Journal of Academic Ethics 14 (2):103-114.
    With rapid advances in the biosciences, bioethics has become an important, if not vital part of a comprehensive bioscience education. Students who successfully complete a course in bioethics will be better equipped for writing manuscripts for publication, preparing research proposals for funding bodies and completing applications for research ethics committees. Given the importance of both grant writing and successful publication in a bioscience career, bioscience students who do not receive training in bioethics will be disadvantaged. Graduates who move into careers (...)

  3. Seven Risks Emerging From Life Patents and Corporate Science.Merryn Ekberg - 2005 - Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society 25 (6):475-483.
    This article examines some of the controversial issues emerging from the privatization of biomedical research and commercialization of biotechnology. The aim is to identify the dominant social, political, and ethical risks associated with the recent shift from academic to corporate science and from the increasing emphasis on investing in research projects that will result in the award of a monopoly patent. Identifying these risks may ultimately assist policy makers in designing new policies or reforming existing practices that will come closer (...)

    Institute of Medical Ethics Guidelines for Confirmation of Appointment, Promotion and Recognition of UK Bioethics and Medical Ethics Researchers.Lucy Frith, Carwyn Hooper, Silvia Camporesi, Thomas Douglas, Anna Smajdor, Emma Nottingham, Zoe Fritz, Merryn Ekberg & Richard Huxtable - 2018 - Journal of Medical Ethics 44 (5):289-291.
    This document is designed to give guidance on assessing researchers in bioethics/medical ethics. It is intended to assist members of selection, confirmation and promotion committees, who are required to assess those conducting bioethics research when they are not from a similar disciplinary background. It does not attempt to give guidance on the quality of bioethics research, as this is a matter for peer assessment. Rather it aims to give an indication of the type, scope and amount of research that is (...)

    Grasping the Concept of Personal Property.Merryn D. Constable, Ada Kritikos & Andrew P. Bayliss - 2011 - Cognition 119 (3):430-437.
    The concept of property is integral to personal and societal development, yet understanding of the cognitive basis of ownership is limited. Objects are the most basic form of property, so our physical interactions with owned objects may elucidate nuanced aspects of ownership. We gave participants a coffee mug to decorate, use and keep. The experimenter also designed a mug of her own. In Experiment 1, participants performed natural lifting actions with each mug. Participants lifted the Experimenter’s mug with greater care, (...)

    Self-Generated Cognitive Fluency as an Alternative Route to Preference Formation.Merryn D. Constable, Andrew P. Bayliss, Steven P. Tipper & Ada Kritikos - 2013 - Consciousness and Cognition 22 (1):47-52.
    People tend to prefer fluently processed over harder to process information. In this study we examine two issues concerning fluency and preference. First, previous research has pre-selected fluent and non-fluent materials. We did not take this approach yet show that the fluency of individuals’ idiosyncratic on-line interactions with a given stimulus can influence preference formation. Second, while processing fluency influences preference, the opposite also may be true: preferred stimuli could be processed more fluently than non-preferred. Participants performed a visual search (...)

    Affective Compatibility with the Self Modulates the Self-Prioritisation Effect.Merryn Dale Constable, Maike Lena Becker, Ye-In Oh & Günther Knoblich - 2021 - Cognition and Emotion 35 (2):291-304.
    The “self” shapes the way in which we process the world around us. It makes sense then, that self-related information is reliably prioritised over non self-related information in cognition. How mig...

    Does the Gender of the Teacher Really Matter? Seven‐ to Eight‐Year‐Olds' Accounts of Their Interactions with Their Teachers.Bruce Carrington, Becky Francis, Merryn Hutchings, Christine Skelton, Barbara Read & Ian Hall - 2007 - Educational Studies 33 (4):397-413.
    In recent years, policy?makers in England, Australia and other countries have called for measures to increase male recruitment to the teaching profession, particularly to the primary sector. This policy of targeted recruitment is predicated upon a number of unexamined assumptions about the benefits of matching teachers and pupils by gender. For example, it is held that the dearth of male ?role models? in schools continues to have an adverse effect on boys? academic motivation and engagement. Utilizing data from interviews with (...)

  12. Proffering Connections: Psychologising Experience in Psychotherapy and Everyday Life.Stuart Ekberg - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 11.
    Conversation analytic research has advanced understanding of the psychotherapeutic process by understanding how psychotherapy is organised over time in and through interaction between clients and therapists. This study progresses knowledge in this area by examining how psychological accounts of experience are progressively developed across a range of helping relationships. Data include: approximately 30 h of psychotherapy sessions involving trainee therapists; approximately 15 h of psychotherapy demonstration sessions involving expert therapists; and approximately 30 h of everyday conversations involving close friends or (...)

    Representation and Ontological Self-Knowledge in Sartre's Drama.Jeremy Ekberg - 2011 - Sartre Studies International 17 (1):75-92.
    Because Sartre's theatre is one of representation and authenticity, plays like The Victors offer Sartrean philosophical explorations of subjects pushed to the limits of existence by torture and oppressive social edicts. It is in extreme situations that a subject most clearly exercises or fails to exercise his freedom and therefore his authenticity. But Sartre's interest in a complete explication of this process wanes before he fully outlines his project of self formation, which leaves the present paper to prove: (1) the (...)

    Disturbed Earth: Conceptions of the Deep Underground in Shale Extraction Deliberations in the US and UK.Tristan Partridge, Merryn Thomas, Nick Pidgeon & Barbara Harthorn - 2019 - Environmental Values 28 (6):641-663.
    Hydraulic fracturing has enabled the recovery of previously inaccessible resources and rendered new areas of the underground 'productive'. While a number of studies in the US and UK have examined public attitudes toward fracking and its various impacts, how people conceptualise the deep underground itself has received less attention. We argue that views on resources, risk and the deep underground raise important questions about how people perceive the desirability and viability of subterranean interventions. We conducted day-long deliberation workshops, facilitating discussions (...)

    Valuing Nature for Wellbeing: Narratives of Socio-Ecological Change in Dynamic Intertidal Landscapes.Erin Roberts, Merryn Thomas, Nick Pidgeon & Karen Henwood - forthcoming - Environmental Values.
    Contributing to the cultural ecosystem services literature, this paper draws on the in-depth place narratives of two coastal case-study sites in Wales to explore how people experience and understand landscape change in relation to their sense of place, and what this means for their wellbeing. Our place narratives reveal that participants understand coastal/intertidal landscapes as complex socio-ecological systems filled with competing legitimate claims that are difficult to manage. Such insights suggest that a focus on diachronic integrity within place narratives might (...)

    Mellan Fykt Och Förändring—Utopiskt Platsskapande I 1970-Talets Alternativa Miljö by Kristoffer Ekberg.Laura Hollsten - 2018 - Utopian Studies 29 (1):111-114.
    In comparison with the buoyantly optimistic 1960s, the 1970s are often characterized as a pessimistic decade. The great hopes and ambitious ideas envisioned by the 1960s generation were replaced by a sense of doom and disappointment in modern society, with its unequal distribution of resources, environmental problems, and the threat of nuclear war.1 Among political radicals, the spontaneous movements of the 1960s grew into more organized and dogmatic forms of leftist political activity. However, as Blake Slonecker has argued, a utopian (...)

  17. Identifying and Addressing Equivocal Trouble in Understanding Within Classroom Interaction.Karen J. Thorpe, Christina Davidson, Susan Danby & Stuart Ekberg - 2016 - Discourse Studies 18 (1):3-24.
    Maintaining intersubjectivity is crucial for accomplishing coordinated social action. Although conversational repair is a recognised defence of intersubjectivity and routinely used to address ostensible sources of trouble in social interaction, it is less clear how people address more equivocal trouble. This study uses conversation analysis to examine preschool classroom interaction, focusing on practices used to identify and address such trouble. Repair is found to be a recurrent frontline practice for addressing equivocal trouble, occasioning space for further information that might enable (...)
