The Effects of Metaphorical Framing on Political Persuasion: A Systematic Literature Review
Effects of metaphorical framing of political issues on opinion have been studied widely by
two approaches: a critical-discourse approach (CDA) and a response-elicitation approach
REA). I conducted a systematic literature review (N=109) that examines
whether these approaches report converging or diverging effects. CDA and
REA were compared on the metaphorical frames that were studied and their reported effects. Results will be presented at the PhD Day.

It explores the current resilience capability and coping mechanisms in different complex temporary organizations. By involving industry partners from other high-compliance industries, it will also reveal cross-sectorial patterns, aiming to provide a deeply practitioner-informed picture of how different sectors currently cope resiliently with inevitable unexpected events in temporary organizations under increasing compliance pressure.|
|Tjeerd Piersma||Sociology||Yes||-||-||Poster||A Life Course Perspective on Blood Donor Behaviour: The Influence of Life Events Across the Donor Career (poster presentation)||Due to the decreasing number of blood donors, recruitment and retention is an important topic of study. Researchers have been studying donor behaviour while trying to characterize the ‘typical blood donor’. However, findings on determinants of donor behaviour are inconclusive, with results changing over time and varying within and between countries. Our study aims to provide a more thorough understanding of the dynamic nature of donor behaviour by adapting a ‘life course perspective’. This approach shifts the focus from the static current state of donor behaviour to dynamic donor careers: ‘How does donor behaviour and motivations change during the life course, and how do life events impact these behavioural and motivational change?’|
|Yes||Presentation skills||Oral||A Brief Measure of Social Media Self-control Failure||People often fail in controlling their social media use when its use conflicts with other goals and obligations. To facilitate research on understanding social media self-control failures, we constructed a brief social media self-control failure (SMSCF)-scale to assess how often social media users give in to social media temptations. Social media users (N = 406) completed a survey (including a 4-week follow-up) to test the scale’s psychometric properties. The selfreport SMSCF-scale showed good internal consistency and test-retest reliability. Demonstrating its construct validity, the SMSCF-scale was moderately related to existing problematic media use and general self-control scales. Demonstrating its predictive validity, the SMSCF-scale was positively related to social media use and feelings of guilt about one’s social media use, and negatively related to psychological wellbeing. The SMSCF-scale provides a useful indicator of social media self-control failure. This could facilitate future research on the psychological processes underlying social media self-control failures.|

Structural disadvantage and wellbeing: The buffering effect of religious behaviour among young-old Turkish and Moroccan immigrants in the Netherlands
High levels of structural disadvantage are known to have a negative impact on the wellbeing of older immigrants. The question is how older immigrants may be protected against the negative effect of structural disadvantage. The stress coping literature suggests that intrinsic and extrinsic religiosity may help immigrants to maintain high levels of wellbeing. This study investigates protection by religion against structural disadvantage among Turkish and Moroccan immigrants living in the Netherlands. Data in the context of the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam. We conclude that neither intrinsic religiosity nor extrinsic religiosity are buffers against structural disadvantage.

|Yes||-||-||Poster||A meta-analysis of metaphorical framing effects|
Figurative framing, as a new approach to framing, proposes that figurative language types such as metaphors can serve as reasoning devices for voters in political debates. The main reason is that metaphors add conceptual content to public discourse by comparing two different concepts. However, previous research shows both large, small and no effects of metaphorical frames on voters’ political attitudes. This study aims to reconcile this conflicting evidence by statistically combining the results from previous research. In this way, we will examine whether or not, on average, metaphorical frames change voters’ political attitudes and which variables may influence this relationship.

Alongside with the numbers of refugees, it has been revealed that how they lost home and what kinds of experiences they had during the journey, however, which type of house they live in and how they experience the daily life since their arrival in hosting countries are barely unveiled. This study aims to see the home experiences and home-making strategies of Syrian refugees in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and Seoul (South Korea) to present in-depth information about the empirical situation and lessons from each other on account that the different socio-cultural settings of each country differ the situation around the Syrian status holders.|
|Lucille Mattijssen||Sociology||Yes||Oral||A typology of non-standard employment careers||Non-standard employment (NSE) has been increasing in the Netherlands during the last few decades. Research on the effects of non-standard employment on the future career of workers is inconclusive: some find that NSE functions as a stepping-stone into good, permanent employment whereas others find that NSE funcitons as a trap. Unlike previous research, this paper takes on a new approach - multichannel sequence analysis - to look into NSE and to create a typology of NSE careers that offers more variation in career types than the original division between traps and stepping-stones.|
