    Ympäristö ja kulttuuri -kirja tuo uusia ja omaperäisiä avauksia maailmanlaajuisiin ympäristökysymyksiin sekä kuvaa monipuolisesti erilaisia ympäristöön liitettyjä kulttuurisia merkityksiä ja arvoja eri puolilla maailmaa. Omakohtaiseen ja pitkäkestoiseen kenttätyöhön perustuva antropologinen tutkimus tarjoaa ainutlaatuisen näkökulman ympäristökysymyksiin ottamalla vakavasti ihmisten erilaiset tavat jäsentää luontoa ja ympäristöään. Antropologinen tutkimus tuottaa näin tietoa, joka jää usein laajan mittakaavaan tutkimuksissa huomioon ottamatta. Vahvasta paikallisnäkökulmastaan huolimatta antropologinen lähestymistapa on aina myös vertaileva ja siten yleinen. Suurin osa kirjan kirjoittajista on antropologeja, mutta joukossa on myös muita yhteiskuntatieteellisen ympäristötutkimuksen sekä metsätieteiden edustajia. Kirjoittajissa on sekä väitelleitä että nuoria, uraansa aloittelevia tutkijoita Helsingin, Oulun, Jyväskylän ja Turun yliopistoista.

    The aim of the study was to search for relationships between entrepreneurship, management and success in farm businesses. Entrepreneurship (’yrittävyys’ in Finnish) is considered as a qualitative characteristic of a person. It is defined as the combination of certain values and attitudes, which are concept of human being; attitudes towards property, labour and uncertainty as well as innovativeness. Management is considered as a labour process on three levels: the institutional level, the economical level and the operative level. Entrepreneurship was measured with a one-dimensional construction called ideology of entrepreneurship. The effectiveness of management on different levels was measured with sum variables. The empirical data of the study was collected from bookkeeping farms in the region of Southern Finland. The main conclusions of the study are as follows. Well-educated farmers and farmers of large farms were more entrepreneurial and more effective as managers than those with lower education and smaller farms. The more entrepreneurial the orientation of the farmer, the higher the effectiveness of management on all the three levels. Innovative farmers and farmers who are willing to take risks were more effective as managers than the less innovative and the risk minimizers. The score on the measure of ideology of entrepreneurship and the coefficient of profitability were positively correlated. The correlation was higher on small farms than on large farms. Three out of five components of ideology of entrepreneurship correlated with the coefficient of profitability on a significant level. The components were attitudes toward property, labour and uncertainty. The scores on the measures of effectiveness on all the managerial levels had a stronger relationship with the technical success (average yield) than with the economical success (coefficient of profitability). Regression analysis demonstrated that besides arable area entrepreneurship is a significant predictor of economical success. Other variables in the model were forest area, insitutional effectiveness and the production line. The model explained 39 percent of the variance in the coefficient of profitability.

    Abstract (Translation studies and the possibility of future-creating proactivity): Translation researchers often and quite eagerly emphasise the practice-orientedness and usefulness of their field of knowledge as well as the proactive impact which their findings have or will have on modern translation practice. This article adopts, however, a critical view of that kind of a goal for proactive action within translation studies, and advocates a different conception and facet of proactivity. Hence, the question of future-orientedness of translation research is approached and explored from two vantage points: first, from the three Peircean modalities, namely possibility (may-be), (f)actuality (actually-is), and tendenciality (must-be or shouldbe)and second, from a futures semiotic view, according to which a future can be invented, made, or discovered.

    Abstract (How the evaluating commentaries of a translation teacher reflect teacher knowledge): Teachers' knowledge has been found in research to be personal and experiential. In this article I discuss teacher knowledge from the perspective of a specific translation teacher. The aim of my study was to discover what kind of knowledge a translation teacher demonstrates when she evaluates her students’ translations. Focusing on attitude expressions in my qualitative analysis, I concentrate on an interview conducted with one teacher, who talks about her students’ translations. On this basis, one may conclude that the teacher’s knowledge is based on her experiences as both a teacher and a native speaker of Swedish.
