The Irish Theatre as Imaginative Space: A Vehicle and Venue for the Reconstruction of the Irish Identity (Published)

Current cultural and political changes have prompted the theatre to play a significant role in staging the transformations of the Irish identity. Over time, it has provided an impetus for expressions of the collective new self-image of the Irish. Re-inventing the self requires a manifestation of space and the production of space whether geographical, metaphorical or a physical stage representation. ‘Space’ has been utilised in Irish drama in terms of geographical location, cartography, social media, technology, immigration, and the theatre stage. Globalisation has also played a crucial role in terms of creating overlapping spaces and multiple belongings. This study will examine through Henri Lefebvre’s theory of space, how this type of spatial awareness manifests itself in Brian Friel’s Translations (1980); Martin McDonagh’s The Beauty Queen of Leenane (1996); Marina Carr’s By the Bog of Cats (1998); Michel Tremblay’s Solemn Mass for a Full Moon in Summer (2009) and Emma Donoghue’s adapted stage play Room (2017).

Study on yield and its components performance and correlation in Field pea (Pisum sativum L.) Genotypes at five Growing Environments of Southern Ethiopia (Review Completed - Accepted)

An experiments consisting of 24 field pea genotypes using a randomized complete block design with three replications were evaluated for performance and correlation of yield and its components in five locations of Southern region, Ethiopia during 2006/07. Data were recorded on some agronomical traits such as plant height, biological yield, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per plant, number of seeds per pod, Harvest index, 100 seed weight and seed yield. Significant difference among the field pea genotypes for grain yield was observed in all locations. The highest mean grain yield (2659 kg ha-1) over the locations was achieved by the genotype Gume followed by Milky (2625 kg ha-1), FpEx-Dz (2511 kg ha-1) and Weyyetu (2460 kg ha-1). Among the locations maximum mean grain yield was produced at Angacha (3801.98 kg ha-1) followed by Hossana (2087.93 kg ha-1), Freeze (1734.96 t ha-1) and Waka (1428.8 kg ha-1). The environmental indices and mean seed yield of the present study corroborated that Angacha was found to be a favourable environment for the majority of field pea genotypes. Combined analysis of variance (ANOVA) Genotype xenvironment interaction (GEI) was highly significant for all traits of the study though; Markos, IG-51890 and IG-51700 were seem to be stable for more than one trait and may be recommended for further testing in diverse environments of south Ethiopia. Significantly positive correlation of biological yield, number of seeds per plant, number of pods per plant, harvest index and plant height with seed yield indicates that these traits should be used as selection criteria to maximize grain yield.

Impact of Employee Development Programs on Organizational Commitment in the Public Universities (Review Completed - Accepted)

Kenyan public universities needed an empirical study to guide them on how they should handle employee development programs of their non-teaching staff. Thus, this study sought to fill this empirical gap by finding out the effect of employee development programs on non-academic staff’s performance in Kenyan Public Universities.

This study adopted descriptive research design that involved a filed survey and questionnaires to collect data. It target 2174 respondents of non-teaching staff. Simple random and purposive sampling was used to select 327 employees as respondents from all the public universities. The study used SPSS to analyzed data

The study revealed that employee development and support influence performance in public universities but not to a large extend as indicated in R squared of 0.8 percent and 0.54 percent. The study recommends that Public Universities should use other motivational strategies and a well designed appraisal procedure to evaluate staff alongside staff development
