Abstract: Tomando como ponto de partida as questões raciais e, principalmente, sua intersecção
com as categorias de gênero e sexualidade, articulando-as aos debates suscitados pelo
feminismo negro (hooks,1984; Hill Collins,2012; Lorde,1984; Clarke, 1988), pelas
reflexões de intelectuais ativistas latino-americanas e caribenhas (EspinosaMiñoso,2012;2014;
Curiel, 2014) como também as reflexões de intelectuais –ativistas
brasileiras ( Gonzalez,1984,1988, 2011; Carneiro, 2005,2011) este texto tem como
objetivo provocar uma reflexão crítica sobre os modos de vidas, vicissitudes, desafios e
enfrentamentos vivenciados por mulheres pretas e lésbicas em contextos diaspóricos
latino-americanos, caribenhos e brasileiros.
A escolha em focar as reflexões nos modos de vidas de mulheres pretas e lésbicas tem a
ver, antes de tudo, com a minha própria experiência enquanto mulher, preta e lésbica,
com as vivências que tenho experimentado no movimento feminista negro e com as
experiências no campo pedagógico, epistemológico e metodológico através de minha
prática docente.

Abstract: Mapeamos a situação das mulheres no âmbito das TIC, assinalando a escassez de mulheres nos setores de desenvolvimento, desenho, gerenciamento e criação. Realizamos uma revisão bibliográfica sobre a posição das mulheres neste âmbito e realizamos reflexões sobre as motivações e fatores que podem estar convergindo para a existência desta situação de exclusão, que denominamos de segunda brecha digital. Avaliamos como o feminismo tem analisado as questões de gênero e tecnologia digital, para entender processos que afastam mulheres e grupos subalternos da cultura digital, ainda quando as primeiras barreiras, as de acesso, sejam superadas. Analisamos criticamente a posição do movimento feminista perante as tecnologias da informação e comunicação e propomos algumas linhas de ação para compreender a e - exclusão das mulheres

Abstract: Interest in gene-environment (G-E) interactions has been growing rapidly in the study of age and the life course, as in other areas of sociological inquiry. In theis paper, we demonstrate that efforts to attribute G-E interactions in sociology have been guided by an overarching assumption of unidirectional G>E causal dynamics that is increasingly recognized as outdated, and that risks underestimating the importance of social and environmental forces in shaping gene expression (epigenesis). Such underestimation reflects a squelching of sociological imagination, and it also provides a distorted understanding of the causal dynamics involved that could have adverse consequences for policy and practice as well as theory, We present some examples of this problem and suggest some alternative formulations of G-E interaction that may simultaneously advance our understanding of the important role of social forces and facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration.

Abstract: As a complex human phenotype, drug abuse is a chronic behavioral disorder which is influenced by genetic, behavioral, and environmental factors. Prior studies have shown that dopamine and serotonin pathways are the major mechanisms in drug addiction because addictive drugs stimulate the brain’s reward system with dopamine or serotonin.
Taking advantage of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (AddHealth), we investigated the interplay between genes and social environment in predicting drug abuse. We found that the dopamine transporter polymorphisms (DAT1), the dopamine D4 receptor (DRD4), serotonin transporter (5HTTLPR) and Monoamine oxidase A (MAOA) are all correlated to whether one uses drugs, and the frequency of use conditional on one’s social disposition of drug abuse. However, the effect of genes depends on one’s social environmental disposition that determines an individual’s exposure to risks and access to resources and constrains or enables people to engage in healthy lifestyles at different stages of the life course.
Our findings extend the current understanding of the way how gene and social environment interplay. And furthermore, we extend the conventional methodology in studying G×E interaction by allowing multilevel measures of environmental factors.

Abstract: It has been argued that oxytocin and dopamine may contribute to maternal sensitivity by enhancing social cognition and empathy, and decreasing stress (Bakermans-Kranenburg & van Ijzendoorn, 2008; Carter, 1998; Feldman et al., 2007). In the current study, we test the possibility that “risk” alleles associated with the less efficient processing of oxytocin (OXTR A) and dopamine (DRD4 7 repeat) moderate the extent to which mothers’ childhood experiences of supportive caregiving are linked with their emotional, cognitive, and physiological responses to infant crying. Given concerns that G X E interactions may function differently in different populations (Ellis et al., 2011), we test maternal race as an additional moderator.

Participants were 209 primiparous mothers (103 African American, 106 European American). Expectant mothers’ heart rate was recorded during a resting baseline and while watching 4 videos of crying infants. After each video, participants rated their emotional reactions, the emotions expressed by the infant, and how much they agreed with causal attributions about why the infant was crying and with various beliefs about infant crying. When infants were 6 months old, mothers engaged in a resting baseline and 3 emotion eliciting tasks with their infants (arm restraint, novelty task, and still face) during which their heart rate was recorded. Following the observation, mothers were shown the videos of the interactive tasks and were asked the same questions they were asked during the prenatal interview. Respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) was derived from the heart rate data and change scores relative to baseline were calculated such that higher scores reflect better physiological regulation. Mothers reported on their childhood caregiving experiences using questionnaires, and a supportive parenting composite (alpha = .63) was created. Mothers provided DNA samples via saliva.

Results from hierarchical linear regression models demonstrated there were no main effects of OXTR or DRD4 on maternal reactions to infant distress. Interactions between OXTR and supportive caregiving were consistent with a dual advantage perspective. That is, supportive parenting was associated with more empathy (β =.19, p< .06) and accurate attributions about the causes of crying (β =.19, p< .05 ) for the sample as a whole, and more accurate distress detection (β =.35, p< .01 ) and fewer mother-oriented beliefs and emotions (β = -.34, p< .01) for African American mothers who did not carry the A allele. In contrast, supportive parenting was not significantly related to these outcomes among mothers who carried the A risk allele (see Figure 1). Interactions involving DRD4 were consistent with the differential susceptibility perspective. Supportive parenting in childhood was only linked with better physiological regulation in response to crying among European American mothers (β =.49, p< .01 ), lower mother-oriented emotions and cognitions among African American mothers (β =.-.40, p< .01), and higher infant-oriented beliefs and emotions (β =.39, p< .001) for the sample as a whole, among mothers who carried the DRD4 7 repeat allele (see Figure 2).

These results will be discussed in relation to competing perspectives on G X E interactions. Implications for parenting behavior will be highlighted.
