Investigation of Work Ready Requirements and Appropriate Curriculum Pairing for Esports in Higher Education

Esports has become one of the most rapidly growing, multi-national, billion-dollar industry driven by the growing provenance of (online) games and online broadcasting technologies. Job prospects in the industry are emergent, diverse and may not be directly related to Esports. This makes it difficult to understand where esports fits in a higher education context; this project investigated current esports job prospects and their corresponding work ready requirements to determine appropriate Esports curriculum place.

Current attitutdes about psychological treatment seeking in adults

Phone interviews with adults ages 40-80 living in southern New Jersey found that women had more positive attitudes toward mental health treatment than men. There was no correlation between age and attitudes, and no difference in attitudes between black and white respondents. These findings suggest that individual attitudes toward treatment might not be a primary barrier to utilization of treatment and structural solutions may more successfully increase utilization of mental health treatment.

The Routledge Handbook on the History of Paris since 1789

This Handbook on the History of Paris since 1789 serves as an innovative piece of scholarship on the city that highlights new avenues of research on post-Revolutionary Paris and its society.

The goal of the handbook will be to provide a cultural history of Paris as a metropolis from the Revolution, through the turbulent nineteenth century, the “triumphant" Third Republic, World Wars, decolonization, and contemporary social and cultural movements up to the present day.
