This is the origin of the research “The pintadas like a citizenship communication media” whose objective is to explore and inventory messages with political and social content, initially in Bogotá and then transcend to other geographies. Starting from visual sociology, a robust photographic material has been registered. As a result, the categories of education and resistance stand out as the most prominent, where signatories and anonymous seem to remember that rebellious culture of Paris.</p> 2020-08-13T16:54:59+02:00 Copyright (c) The Role Of Mobile Money In Moderating Financial Exclusion: A Tanzanian Experience 2020-09-24T09:35:03+02:00 Deogratius Joseph Mhella <p>Prior to the advent of mobile money, the banking sector in most of the developing countries excluded certain segments of the population. The excluded populations were deemed as a risk to the banking sector. The banking sector did not work with cash stripped and financially disenfranchised people. Financial exclusion persisted to incredibly higher levels. Those excluded did not have bank accounts, savings in financial institutions, access to credit, loans, and insurance services. The advent of mobile money moderated the very factors of financial exclusion that the banks failed to resolve. This paper explains how mobile money moderates the factors of financial exclusion that the banks and microfinance institutions have always failed to moderate. The paper seeks to answer the following research question: 'How has mobile money moderated the factors of financial exclusion that other financial institutions failed to resolve between 1960 and 2008? Tanzania has been chosen as a case study to show how mobile has succeeded in moderating financial exclusion in the period after 2008.</p> 2020-08-13T21:39:47+02:00 Copyright (c) Creativity in Algerian Protests' Slogans against Bouteflika's Fifth-Term Presidency 2020-09-24T09:35:00+02:00 Zohra Labed <p>Massive street demonstrations against the 82-year-old president Bouteflika's bid for the fifth term have taken place across Algeria and are still going on since 22 February 2019. A special peculiarity of these Algerian events is that the protesters have walked peacefully raising their voices through chanting and writing creative slogans against the prevailing regime. The objective of this study is to test the validity of the Investment Theory of Creativity with regards to the Algerian protesters’ slogans against Bouteflika’s fifth term presidential candidacy. Out of the six theory components, our results reveal the insufficient and questionable presence of the knowledge component.</p> 2020-08-14T13:40:25+02:00 Copyright (c) Avatars of Bioethics in the 90's in Cuba 2020-09-24T09:34:56+02:00 Raydel Zumeta Fernández <p class="p1">This paper explains the social factors that condition the appearance of bioethics in Cuba, its ups and downs, its successes and failures, with the purpose of clarifying the stages through which the matter passes and contributing to an understanding of its epistemological status. It is stated that the 1990s marked the formal origin or processes of institutionalization of bioethics in Cuba. It is argued that the new discipline was not welcomed by many government officials. The crisis of the 1990s marked a new route in the social relations of production in Cuba whose most sensitive consequence was the restructuring of the hierarchy of values, with the demise of the socialist camp. The consequences of the surreptitious disappearance of the socialist camp are exposed.</p> 2020-08-14T13:50:08+02:00 Copyright (c) The Voice of the Southern Diaspora: Muddy Waters and the Multi-Layered Influences Associated with the Diffusion of Blues Culture 2020-09-24T09:34:53+02:00 John Byron Strait <p>This paper focuses on the dynamic nature of the Southern Diaspora, the twentieth-century mass migration of African-Americans in the United States from the rural south to the urban north and west. The significant migratory links between the Mississippi Delta and Chicago, Illinois, and the influences it had on the larger diaspora are emphasized. The music of famed blues artist Muddy Waters is used as a lens to demonstrate both the causes and the significant impacts of this diaspora. By exploring the multi-layered circuitry of change associated with the evolution and diffusion of Delta blues music, this paper reveals the transnational and transcultural dimensions of the Southern Diaspora.</p> 2020-08-14T14:18:30+02:00 Copyright (c) A Philosophy that lays the Foundation for Forging the Path to Peace 2020-09-24T09:34:50+02:00 Verónica Dávila <p class="p1">The present reflection responds to a particular interest framed in the understanding of peace as a social state longed for by all communities, and which has become a complex phenomenon in our day. It highlights an aspect that has to do with the role of philosophy for children in the construction of peace, whose central claim is to show how this type of formation could lay the foundations that allow progress towards this ideal, taking as reference the postulates of imperfect peace, reconstruction and reconciliation.</p> 2020-09-14T17:57:28+02:00 Copyright (c)
