1. Hsu, Kanlin. "From Signification to Medicalization: A Discourse Analysis of Marketing Strategy for Medical cosmetology in Taiwan" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 4S Annual Meeting - Abstract and Session Submissions, Komaba I Campus, University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan, <Not Available>. 2018-10-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p420654_index.html>

Abstract: Against the rising critique of “false beauty image” imposed by the fashion and performance circles upon the public, medical cosmetology is emerging as a “promising” solution to conform the standardized body. However, analyses have been focusing upon the perfect body to be achieved rather than on imperfect body to be modified. Though thought to be medical response to existing social needs, medical cosmetology remain dependent on various marketing strategies to convert potential consumers into health consumers. Drawing on analysis of marketing discourses in news, Yahoo Answers and major health websites, this paper investigates the marketing strategy of medical cosmetology.
The author argues that various product placements have been an important strategy for marketing medical cosmetology. A typical marketing discourse is characteristic of problem/solution structure that signifies imperfect body pieces with sociational problems and proposes medical cosmetology as solution to sociational problems. This paper concludes that the combination of commercial marketing strategy with medicalization in lifestyle medicine deserves more attention. Moreover, perfect/false body image might be constructed in opposition to imperfect body pieces along with standardized beauty.

Abstract: The failure of France and the Netherlands to approve by referendum the Constitutional-Treaty of Leuken proposed by the Convention on the Future of Europe in 2005 surprised much of European elites and political analysts alike, who then pointed out the deficiencies of an already fragile process of political integration. In general, the French and Dutch “No” to the European Constitution is usually explained by traditional literature in terms of economic and political factors. While materialist approaches attribute the failure to approve the treaty to a broad rejection to its neoliberal economic content, institutionalist approaches argue that it was due to provisions for establishing a supra-nationality which would disrupt the Member-States’ sovereignty. Finding fault with both approaches for not taking into account the system of meanings constructed by the discourse on European integration, and the feeling those meanings evoke on people’s sense of their own nationalities, we will argue that the failure to approve the Constitutional-Treaty of Leuken is better understood by looking into the discourse on European integration. Inspired by Laclau and Mouffe literature on discourse and hegemonic ideology, we claim that the rejection of the treaty is due to the unsuccessful discursive strategy of articulating two elements - “constitution” and “treaty” – that already stood in opposition within a competing underlying discursive formation. Moreover, as we develop further our argument, we will point out that the discursive formation which led to a popular rejection to the idea of an “European Constitution” is not recent. By employing discourse analysis methods, we will show that, since the founding treaties of the EU, the discourse on European integration has always been resistant to this kind of discursive articulation.

Abstract: This paper contributes to an infrastructural analysis of derivative markets through an account of the creation and development of futures markets on the Chicago Board of Trade and the New Orleans Cotton Exchange between 1856 and 1915. It takes as the starting point of analysis the dissimilar systems by which futures markets were linked to their underlying markets in commodities. This article argues that these systems produced commodity classifications with distinct semiotic features, which in turn promoted divergent behaviors on the futures market: high-risk speculation in Chicago and low-risk hedging in New Orleans. The analysis begins from the material features of wheat and cotton, then moves to examine the process of grading and its incorporation into practice, and finally traces the consequences of these for market behavior. By illustrating the impact of infrastructure—via the semiotic character of the classifications it creates—on market behavior, these cases demonstrate how even similar socio-technical arrangements can give rise to distinct market systems.

Abstract: Algebra is frequently referred to as the “gateway” course for high school mathematics in much the same way as Calculus can “open” or “close” doors for students interested in pursuing degrees in STEM areas. In this brief report we will share the a "slice" of the findings from a large study focused on identifying students’ common algebra errors (errors with fractions and operations) in their university mathematics coursework and the development of an intervention.
