CARROLL, CH. DICKENS AND P. TRAVER 2023-04-26T01:50:44+00:00 Tetiana Didkovska <p>The article deals with the semantic aspect of food functioning as punishment/reward and lovelessness/comfort in the English literature of the XIX and early XX centuries in the works by L. Carrol, Ch. Dickens and P. Travers. The research investigates the food motif as a means to reflect eating traditions of a particular historic period and a social marker for the protagonists. The author explores how the writers use eating habits to express acceptance, resistance, emotional affection, taboo behaviour, power and celebration traditions. It is suggested that food imagery is positively related to cultural identity which includes various issues from social position to gender issues. It is shown that the presentation of food in literature can mirror the writers’ own preferences allowing them to tap on their personal experience in the works, thus giving “food” for bibliographers. Recent literary culinary studies have stimulated the development of gastronomic tours on the pages of the renowned writers, the so-called food trails, and theme fests such as the Great Dickens Christmas Fair and Victorian Holiday Party or Whitby’s White Rabbit Trail as part of niche gastronomic tourism in Great Britain. So, the present interdisciplinary research may be of great interest not only for philologists but also for students specializing in tourism and country studies and the general public.</p> 2023-04-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Tetiana Didkovska ANALYSIS OF ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROCESSES AND INTERVENTIONS IN THE DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY INDUSTRY: AN OVERVIEW OF THE PRACTICES TO POLICIES FRAMEWORK 2023-05-05T02:52:38+00:00 Maria Victoria R. Castillo Siddhartha Paul Tiwari <p>Many industry leaders are beginning to realize that digital technology is rapidly shifting its position in sync with organization development processes and interventions from serving as a marginal efficiency driver to becoming an enabler of fundamental innovations and disruptions as it moves from being a marginal efficiency driver to an enabler of fundamental disruptions. With the advent of digitalization, sweeping and large-scale transformations are occurring across multiple aspects of business, providing the opportunity to create and capture unique value as well as posing significant risks to the organization's development processes and interventions. In order to be prepared for the strategic implications of these changes for their organizations, industry ecosystems and society as a whole, business leaders across all sectors are grappling with the process and intervention development of their organizations. Currently, the economic and social implications of organization development processes and interventions are contested, raising serious concerns about digital transformation's wider impact. The purpose of this research is to provide an analysis of organizational development processes and interventions in the digital technology industry and to develop a framework for the application of policies to practices.</p> 2023-05-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Maria Victoria R.

The primary pedagogical benefits of employing case studies in corporate English classes are discussed in this study. The case method is an active learning technique that consists in the use of specific learning situations in the organization of the learning process, aimed at formulating a problem and finding options for solving it, followed by analysis in the classroom. Situational analysis is an active learning technique that calls for both instructor and student interaction in the classroom, in contrast to traditional education that relies on lectures and has little to no student involvement. The primary objective of the essay is to outline the benefits of the case study approach as a cutting-edge way for enhancing learners' linguistic and nonlinguistic skills.</p> 2023-05-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Aytan Fizuli Kazimova THE IMPORTANCE OF STUDENT’S SOCIOCULTURAL COMPETENCE DURING THEIR FOREIGN LANGUAGE STUDIES 2023-05-31T04:10:32+00:00 Matanat Mirfayaz Mammadova <p>The article analyzes the social component of the updated speech portrait of a university specialist. The sociocultural dominant of intercultural speech interaction is determined by the position of the individual in the social system, the situation of communication, his profession, region of origin, and age. In this regard, the subjects of communication are faced with various features of communication: this is communicative behavior, the cultural space of communication, the linguistic personality of a foreign language with an individually formed picture of the world. English language instruction at the Language Pedagogical Institute is governed by educational standards that call for a move to higher level of foreign language skill as measured by the mainstream European scale of non-native language proficiency. When learning a foreign language, particular focus should be placed on the practical aspects of mastering the language while taking into account contemporary linguistic trends, motivating factors, and the psychology-pedagogical aspects of oral speaking. Learning a foreign language becomes a creative process that opens up the culture and mindset of the nation where it is being learned. If a sociocultural aspect of learning foreign language content is fully realized, this will encourage students' interest in the subject and lead to more fully realized language mastery. The sociocultural field of research concerned with instructing the interpretation of foreign language speech is taken into consideration at the junction of competency-based and intercultural approaches. Emphasis is placed on the value of learning how to identify and evaluate the significance of social elements' influences on a speaker's speech behavior.</p> 2023-05-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Matanat Mirfayaz Mammadova CHALLENGES IN IMPLEMENTING GOVERNANCE POLICIES FOR THE PROTECTION OF INDONESIAN MIGRANT WORKERS 2023-05-31T04:11:07+00:00 Wajid Fauzi Roy Valiant Solomon Eko Prasojo <p>The Indonesian Migrant Workers Protection Governance Policy, outlined in Law No. 18/2017, has faced challenges in effectively protecting migrant workers. Despite being in effect for over three years, issues such as black markets and brokering practices persist, and institutional problems hinder policy implementation. This study examines the factors that influence policy implementation by analyzing relevant government and non-government institutions. Utilizing Mazmanian and Sabatier's theory (1983) and Grindle's theory (1980), the research identifies problem characteristics, policy characteristics, and policy environment as key factors. Bovaird and Loefler's (2016) Governance concept is also used to formulate directions for implementation improvement. The study finds that while some elements, such as the exemption of placement fees, establishment of Integrated Services, and provision of social security, have been implemented, other critical elements like the role of regions in preparing funds and training have not been implemented. Additionally, the research identifies diverse prospective Indonesian Migran Worker (PMI) behavior, hierarchical integration between institutions, and socio-economic conditions during the Covid-19 pandemic as the main factors affecting policy implementation. To improve policy implementation, the study suggests four interventions, including high-level leadership coordination, completion of implementing rules, policy socialization and supervision, and enforcement of legal rules.</p> 2023-05-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Wajid Fauzi, Roy Valiant Solomon, Eko Prasojo THE IMPACT OF THE TRAMWAY ON PEDESTRIAN ACCESSIBILITY IN THE NEW CITY OF ALI MENDJELI IN CONSTANTINE 2023-06-02T01:25:04+00:00 Mehdi Kaghouche Imane Benkechkache <p>The new city of Ali Mendjeli in Constantine has capitalized on the extension of the tramway line by adopting a sustainable mode of transportation that has significantly reduced car usage and alleviated congestion in the city. The introduction of the tramway has also led to the creation of outdoor amenities such as widened sidewalks, green spaces, and resting areas, which have promoted pedestrian activity. The objective of our research was to examine the impact of the tramway's arrival on pedestrian accessibility in this city. To achieve this, we employed a mixed methodology that combined quantitative and qualitative tools. We distributed a questionnaire to a sample of residents in the new city of Ali Mendjeli and conducted on-site observations as well. The findings of our study clearly demonstrated that the arrival of the tramway in the new city of Ali Mendjeli and the accompanying outdoor enhancements along its route have had a positive impact on pedestrian accessibility in the city.</p> 2023-06-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Mehdi Kaghouche, Imane Benkechkache
