2014 OCEP Award-Winning Course:
Afro-Brazilian Culture and Portuguese Language
USF in Brazil 2015 Summer Program 
Salvador, Bahia, Brazil
June 10 -July 11, 2015

 

As part of the University of South Florida's initiative on Afro-Descendants in Latin America, we are organizing our third annual USF in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil program.  Salvador is a UNESCO Heritage Site, located in the northeastern region of Brazil, and it is characterized by a unique blend of African, European, and Indigenous cultures.  This program offers an intensive four week summer immersion program in two courses: 1) Afro-Brazilian culture and society and 2) Portuguese Language, so students can earn 6 credits. The Afro-Brazilian culture and society course will be taught with an interdisciplinary approach, drawing from sociology, political science, and anthropology to study contemporary issues such as racial discrimination, environmental justice, and social movements.  This program is unique because students will live with Brazilian families in a home-stay arrangement and participate in service-learning with the community organization, Instituto Steve Biko.  There are excursions to nearby towns (Cachoeira and the Island of Itapar´┐Żca) and opportunities to participate in cultural activities such as capoeira.  We welcome graduate and undergraduate students from across the country to participate in the USF in Brazil program.  It's free to apply, but space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis!

The Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment helps social workers firmly grasp developing issues in human behavior theories. It provides an outlet for empirically based articles about human behavior theory that facilitate social workers' practice goals. This innovative journal is the first to address the complexities of human behavior in relation to social work and its relevancy to practice. This makes it an essential resource for classes in human behavior in the social environment. Articles provide you with groundbreaking, up-to-date information on developments in empirically based human behavior theory. They address conceptual and empirical foci which study human behavior as a complex phenomenon. Supported theories target specific behaviors for change, possess clarity by describing in detail the intended change(s), predict the change(s), and facilitate the desired behavioral change(s) through implementation of the model theory.

 

SPECIAL THEME CALL FOR MANUSCRIPTS

 

TOPIC: POLICE SHOOTING OF UNARMED AFRICAN AMERICAN MALES:
IMPLICATIONS FOR THE INDIVIDUAL, FAMILY, AND THE COMMUNITY

 

This interdisciplinary special theme issue of The Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment is dedicated to scholarly contributions, practice wisdom, solution-based, and evidence-based community interventions that are effective in addressing the perennial disproportionality of police brutality, and killings of African American males.   The special issue editors welcome manuscript submissions that address police shooting of unarmed African American males and explain how the confluence and intersections of historic, contemporary, socioeconomic, legal, and political factors contribute to social inequities against African American males and their interactions with law enforcement agents. Manuscripts that consider the aforementioned factors and their implications for African American males at the individual, family and/or community level a will be considered. Empirical (quantitative), qualitative, mixed method theoretical, conceptual, and synthesized (literature/systematic reviews, or meta-analyses) manuscripts are welcomed.
