Video: Robert Putnam i Manchester

Jeg fandt en ældre video med Robert Putnam, som jeg gav mig til at se. Jeg blogger den lige, så jeg ved, hvor jeg har den. Der er ikke meget, som ikke allerede har været sagt i andre Putnam-videoer (og audioer) her på Veritas Universalis.

Fra en konference afholdt den 16. oktober 2007. “Social Capital and Community Cohesion in Manchester” på Manchester Metropolitan University, Department of Sociology:

Robert Putnam on How Religion Unites and Divides Americans

Audio Headset Black 50“American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us” is a exhaustive survey of the role of religion in American public life, and authors Robert Putnam and David Campbell, paint a mostly positive portrait of American religion.

Religious Americans are better neighbors than their secular counterparts, are more likely to volunteer and give money to charities; are more civically engaged and more likely to let someone cut in line; the list goes on.

“American Grace” also finds us increasingly polarized on religious matters but increasingly tolerant of religious differences. The reason? Political scientist, Robert Putnam, believes it’s ultimately our friendships and our social networks that help us overcome our religious differences.

Robert Putnam on America’s social fabric and meeting Gaddafi

As one of the best known the social scientists of the last half century, Professor Robert Putnam has performed research into American society and how it has evolved over recent decades. In this interview he discusses his latest book American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us, as well as explaining how levels of connection and trust among people (known as social capital) have far reaching implications for how a nation like America handles terrorist attacks, financial crises and presidential elections. Professor Putnam also recounts his experience of meeting Colonel Gaddafi in the Libyan desert and what it told him about the now infamous dictator

Audio: Robert Putnam om social kapital

Intervieweren hedder James Panichi – fra ABC Radio i Australien den 22. April 2011. Komplet udskrift her:

Healthy, wealthy and happy: why social capitalists rule

Audio IconYou may have heard of human capital — that’s the total of what you know and how you can put it to work. Then there’s physical capital: that’s the material stuff you own. But what about ‘social capital’? What’s the value, and the measure, of our networks of social interaction? It’s not just about formal membership of organisations, or running for public office. It’s about the worth of all our social interactions: a chat with a neighbour over the back fence, work for a school committee, letter-writing to the local paper or the signing of a petition. It all adds up to social capital. And it’s more important than you might think. Communities with high levels of social capital are happier, healthier, safer and wealthier than those with little of it. Research suggests that social capital is, indeed, the key to a good life. So, what happens when social capital collapses? What should we do? And is it something which law-makers should be thinking about? American academic and author Robert Putnam, who has chronicled the collapse in social capital in the United States, says we need to reconsider our TV watching habits, ditch our virtual friends and find ways to reconnected with society. Real people, real interaction. You schmooze or you lose.

Robert D. Putnam har mødt Moammar Gadhafi

With Libya’s Megalomaniac ‘Philosopher-King’

By Robert D. Putnam – February 26, 2011

The Wall Street Journal

In a tent in the desert, Gadhafi explained why he could never tolerate any challenge to his supreme will.

On Jan. 19, 2007, my wife, Rosemary, and I spent several hours with Col. Moammar Gadhafi in his tent in the Libyan desert, sipping tea and discussing sociology and political theory. It was a strange encounter at the time, and after the horrific events of the past week in Libya, it seems stranger still.

Video: Robert Putnam om religion og tolerance i USA og Israel

Hvis man har set en af alle de Putnam-videoer, der er dukket op det sidste halve år, kan man roligt springe denne over. Det er mere eller mindre samme forelæsning hver gang. Putnam skøjter stadig udenom islam. 

I Q&A dukker der dog lidt nyt op, der handler om etiopere i Israel. Det ikke  meget, diskussionen berører emnet, men etiopierne har det åbenbart ikke for godt i deres nye fædreland:

Video: Interview – Joseph Daniels & Robert Putnam

For folk, der allerede har set en af de mange nye videoer med Robert Putnam, er der ikke så meget nyt i dette interview. Ikke for at kritisere, for programmet er udmærket. Så mangler man lidt opdatering mht. Putnam, er chancen her. Problemet med islam hører man stadig ikke rigtig noget om:

Dr. Robert Putnam on The Difference Network at Marquette University

In the first of a two-part interview, Drs. Robert Putnam and Joseph Daniels discuss social capital and its implications in religion and politics. Putnam’s book, American Grace, examines the role social capital plays in how religion divides and unites Americans. Daniels’ research on social capital is cited in the book.

Dr. Robert Putnam on The Difference Network at Marquette University

In the second of a two-part series, Dr. Robert Putnam explains the “Aunt Susan” phenomenon, and he and Dr. Joseph Daniels discuss how Americans have been shifting their religious affiliations to align with their political beliefs.

Programmet, der er optaget for nyligt, er uploadet på  YouTube den 23. november 2010.

Skøjter stadig udenom islam:

Religious people are ‘better neighbors’

By David Campbell and Robert Putnam

Logo USA TodayIs religion toxic or a tonic for our nation’s civic life? The question often inspires passion, and vitriol, on both sides. Professional atheists like Christopher Hitchens argue that “religion poisons everything,” while advocates for religion, like Glenn Beck, see faith in God as the antidote to all that ails America.

To understand religion’s role in America today, we have spent the last five years exhaustively examining the many ways that religion affects American society — from our families to our politics to our communities. We have done so with what we believe to be the most comprehensive survey of religion in America ever done, supplemented by every other source of relevant data we could find. The result is our new book, American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us. Our objective is not to take sides on religion, but only to report what the data say.

Mere HER i USA Today. The Telegraph har en artikel om artiklen her. Desuden en audio – Putnam siger ikke noget nyt – fra 15. november 2010:

Author Robert Putnam discusses his new book, “American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us.” The book includes a dozen or so profiles of congregations across the country, attempting to illuminate the role of spirituality in the everyday lives of Americans.

Video: Robert D. Putnam om religion i USA

Robert Putnam lurepasser mht. islam. Emnet berøres næsten ikke. Her handler det mest om diverse kristne retninger i USA, der sjældent giver problemer med sameksistens. Robert Putnam spiller faktisk naivist, selvom hans forskning viser, at han ved bedre. Videoen handler også om religiøse forskelle og ligheder mellem demokrater og republikanere. Fra 21. oktober 2010:

How Religion is Reshaping America

Moderated by Bill Parent, UCLA School of Public Affairs

Over the past 50 years, religion in America has radically transformed. The 1960s saw a drop in religious observance and spurred a conservative reaction that, over the next 20 years, created the Religious Right. In the 1990s, younger generations, put off by the deepening link between faith and conservative politics, began to abandon organized religion altogether. Because it has long inspired volunteerism, philanthropy, and community engagement, the decline of religion threatens to impoverish civic health. But despite these trends, religious tolerance seems to be on the rise: up to one-half of all American marriages are interfaith; even deeply religious Americans believe people of other faiths can go to heaven; and one-third of Americans have switched religions. Where does religion stand today, and what does it mean for our civic health? Groundbreaking political scientist Robert Putnam, author of Bowling Alone and the forthcoming American Grace, visits Zócalo to ask whether Americans can get past the new religious divide, and what the future holds for religious life in America.

How Religion is Transforming America

The recent uproar over building a mosque and community center near Ground Zero illustrated an interesting paradox about religion in America.

“America is very religiously devout and religiously diverse,” said Robert Putnam, the groundbreaking political scientist and author of American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us. “In most places in the world, that combination produces mayhem — Belfast, Bosnia, Beirut, Baghdad, Bombay.”

But the U.S. is, he said, “surprisingly tolerant across racial lines.”

How Religion Has Changed Since ‘The Ten Commandments’

In American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us, political scientist Robert Putnam drew from the two broadest surveys on religion in the U.S. to explore how the landscape of faith has transformed over the last 50 years. In the excerpt below, Putnam outlines how drastically our relationship to religion has changed since the days of “The Ten Commandments” and the John Kennedy candidacy.

In the 1950s, the Fraternal Order of Eagles teamed up with movie director Cecil B. DeMille for a unique promotion of the epic movie The Ten Commandments. In a form of reverse product placement, the Eagles and DeMille donated monuments of the biblical Ten Commandments to communities all around the country.

Video & audio: Robert Putnam om social kapital

Den her video har jeg ledt huller i jorden efter:

Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community

Robert Putnam

Videoen er fra den 8. marts 2001 og varer 1 time og 35 minutter. Putnams forelæsning begynder efter 5½ minut og man starter videoen HER. Der er et par steder, hvor lyden kortvarigt kikser, men det retter sig straks efter.

Robert Putnam er professor ved Harvard University, men forelæser her på Yale Law School over sin berømte bog, der for alvor gav begreberne social kapital og social sammenhængskraft udbredelse. Det er ikke meget, Putnam kommer ind på immigrationens mørkeste sider, men hans bog er som bekendt meget væsentlig alligevel. Jeg deler dog ikke hans optimisme – der er for meget naivist over Putnam. USA er et meget provinsielt sted.

Hvis videoen ikke vil starte, er det nok fordi, ens RealPlayer ikke er opdateret. Den nye freeware version kom for få uger siden, – den er faktisk blevet helt pæn og billedkvaliteten er – i modsætning til mit screenshot tool – steget ganske betragteligt. :mrgreen: Download RealPlayer her. Er man til VLC kan den nye version hentes her.

Desuden er der et radio-interview fra den 20. august 2007. Her spørges der ind til immigrationsperspektivet, diversitet, multikultur ect. Radioværten fra KQED Radio hedder Michael Krasny. Interviewet varer godt 50 minutter:

Robert Putnam

The program speaks with Harvard professor of public policy, Robert Putnam.

Putnam is the author of a recent diversity study as well as many books, including “Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community” and “Better Together: Restoring the American Community.”
