Due to the current need for modernization, many public administrations are faced with a series of reform processes, under various forms and concerning several aspects of the administration. One can reasonably suppose that these upheavals have effects on civil servants, on their relationship with the organisation and on the way they see it. Within such a large issue, our main concern is to question the existence of links between a major planned change within an administration (such as a NPM reform) and its organizational identities. Three positions can be tested: • the impact: public reforms involve the transformation of identities; • the independence: identities persist, whatever the reforms may be; • and finally, co-structuring: reforms partly modify identities, but the latter also shape the reforms process. The position we are adopting in this paper tends to fit into this third approach, resulting from empirical data collected within a Belgian Ministry: the introduction of an NPM reform leads to a hybridization of identity logics within a public administration, but in other respects, the reform process can eventually be influenced by the identity logics. Using a qualitative analysis of our empirical material, we first distinguished 6 identity profiles, characterised by their reference to an identity logic (public service, public managerialism or pragmatism) and their perception of the context (congruence or dissonance). This identity profile concept can be defined as the enactment of the context according to each logic. In other words, the confrontation of the identity logic with the perception of the context can lead to either a situation of congruence (in which the perception of the context appears to be in continuity with the identity logic) or a situation of dissonance (in which there is a break between the perception of the context and the identity logic). The position towards the context, leading to either congruence or dissonance, depends on both individual and group factors. In order to give these profiles a longitudinal dimension and to propose an analysis of identity dynamics in a temporal perspective, we then conducted a second set of interviews 12 to 18 months later, with the same sample of people we had met before. In this way, we can explain how identity profiles evolve over time. A concomitant analysis of the administration context and the identity changes allows us to reveal the links between identities and the continuous change context into which they fit. Through our case study, our hypothesis of organizational identities and reform process co-structuring appears to be valid, as shown by the hybridization of identity logics within the administration we studied. Our results allow us to assume a modification of identity points of reference following a reform, as well as a reinterpretation of this reform through the identity filter. Our longitudinal approach reveals the identity dynamics, by identifying notably the shift processes from one position to another, and leads us to propose a model of contextualized identity dynamics. From our data, we are also able to show which factors produce (or are likely to produce) identity shifts. These evolution factors are the situational events which, when they occur, entail an evolution in the perception of the context perception of either congruence or dissonance), and can lead to a transition from one identity profile to another. We also consider the frame of mind of each identity profile towards change (1) as it is actually experienced and (2) in a projective way, as it would be experienced in future (i.e. the dimensions people wish to be changed, and those they fear being changed). Such information results in several lessons for managerial consideration: it can be used as a basis to extract precious indicators for change management – on the content of change as well as how it is conducted. These observations can also be used to identify the change potential of an organisation, in the design of change management strategies, and particularly in terms of communication policies. [less ▲]

Identity results from interlock of two systems which are a set of abstracted representations about oneself and a phenomenological self. Literature highlights identity disturbance in schizophrenia that affects each of both systems. In the same vein, the present study investigates the stability and the quality of traits self-knowledge, a component of abstracted representations of self, in schizophrenia patients. Sixty-eight patients with schizophrenia and 68 healthy control subjects completed a short version of a personality scale (LABEL). This scale is composed of two versions (A and B), each comprising 50 adjectives that correspond to synonymous adjectives in the alternate list. Participants indicated how these adjectives described themselves and completed both versions of the scale on two separate occasions, one month apart. The findings showed that schizophrenic patients presented an unstable identity and change in identity quality compared with healthy subjects. However, this identity disturbance was weaker than expected. These results are discussed in a part of autobiographical memory disturbances in schizophrenia, illness duration and the decompensation stage. [less ▲]

Relatively few studies have examined memory bias for social stimuli in depression or dysphoria. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of depressive symptoms on memory for facial information. A total of 234 participants completed the Beck Depression Inventory II and a task examining memory for facial identity and expression of happy and sad faces. For both facial identity and expression, the recollective experience was measured with the Remember/Know/Guess procedure (Gardiner Richardson-Klavehn, 2000). The results show no major association between depressive symptoms and memory for identities. However, dysphoric individuals consciously recalled (Remember responses) more sad facial expressions than non-dysphoric individuals. These findings suggest that sad facial expressions led to more elaborate encoding, and thereby better recollection, in dysphoric individuals. [less ▲]

Dynamic models present a fundamental tool in systems biology, but rely on kinetic parameters, such as association and dissociation constants. Their direct estimation from studies on isolated reactions is usually expensive, time-consuming or even infeasible for large models. As a consequence, they must be estimated from indirect measurements, usually in the form of time-series data. We describe an observer-based parameter estimation approach taking the specific structure of biochemical reaction networks into account. Considering reaction kinetics described by polynomial or rational functions, we propose a three step approach. In a first step, the estimation of not directly measured states is decoupled from the estimation of the parameters using a suitable model extension. In a second step, a specially suited nonlinear observer estimates the extended state. Based on the obtained state estimates, the parameter estimates are calculated in a straightforward way in the final step. The applicability of the approach is exemplified considering a simplified model of the circadian rhythm. [less ▲]

This article seeks to rethink the world of think tanks as a sub-space constituting the field of power; growing links of this sub-space with media industry, economy and politics being expressed and consolidated through the seamless movement of certain social agents. These representatives of the financial bourgeoisie have in fact a purely instrumental relation with liberalism, their pragmatism being well accommodated with a social discourse of public regulation. In this perspective, the denunciation of think tanks as a preferred vehicle for liberal ideology ignores the role of think tanks in the construction, reproduction and dissemination of a hegemonic discourse – that of capitalism – which uses both market idolatry and State fetishism.

This article focuses on the first novel by Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Purple Hibiscus (2003). It examines how religious prejudice is encoded in the account of the book’s autodiegetic narrator, a fifteen-year-old girl whose father is a violent, extremist Igbo Catholic. Based on a close reading of the text, the essay argues that an analysis of the novel’s use of speech and thought presentation may contribute to the assessment of the main character’s evolving ideological stance. It is suggested that the resulting appraisal of the narrator’s development provides key insights into the interpretation of the book. [less ▲]
