1. Liu, Peng. ""Solo or ensemble?" Bilingual education in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 55th Annual Conference of the Comparative and International Education Society, Fairmont Le Reine Elizabeth, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Apr 30, 2011 <Not Available>. 2019-06-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p485304_index.html>

Abstract: The bilingual education in Xinjiang, a Chinese minority region, is discussed through the lens of policy web theory, in which power, voice, and the interaction of policies at different levels are examined. In the Joshee and Johnson (2005) policy web theory, the ring of policy represents policy made at different levels. The thread represents the interconnection between different levels. The joint point of thread and ring is the policy text, which suggests that sharing focus among different levels is possible instead of the levels being complementary. The policy text at the joint point of thread and ring shows the historical struggle ever since ( Joshee and Joshon, 2005). The open place between rings and thread is the place for people involved in the policy-making process.
Through analysis of relevant literature, this paper concludes that: 1) Bilingual education in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region is surrounded and influenced by different policies at multiple levels of a bureaucratic system; 2) The relationship among these policies is dynamic against the macro-national context; 3) the basis of the bilingual education policy web in Xinjiang is changing along with the historical stages in modern Chinese history; 4) The central government plays a significant role in the formation of and changes in bilingual education policy in the centralized political system of the Chinese context; 5) The voice of the people, especially minority people, is not that significant in the policy process, which partially explains why the effect of bilingual education policy is not as significant as expected.

Abstract: How women and men allocate time to leisure activities done alone or done with others is an overlooked indicator of gender equality. Gender differences in the amount of leisure time are tightly intertwined with family status, education, and race-ethnicity. The increased number of adults living alone and class- and race- linked patterns of relationship formation suggest that shared and solo leisure time inequalities may be one mechanism through which family structure affects individual well-being. Leisure studies scholars theorize racial minority experiences of social marginalization and economic disadvantage affect leisure preferences and constrain leisure options. This analysis contributes to closing this gap in knowledge by using data from the 2003-2012 American Time Use Study to investigate how solo and shared leisure time varies by gender, race-ethnicity, family status, and education. I begin by documenting gender and racial-ethnic differences in the total amount of shared and solo leisure time across relationship and educational categories. I then investigate gender, racial-ethnic, educational, and relationship differences in shared and solo cognitive, social, active, civic, and sedentary civic leisure. These types of leisure have distinct implications for well-being and also affect the accumulation of health, cultural, and social capital and the benefits related to participating in the social infrastructure of the world.

Abstract: Many seem to have forgotten New Orleans—Mayor Nagin’s lack of a tenable evacuation plan, the Army Corps of Engineers’ failed levees, the entirely inadequate response by the Red Cross and FEMA, and, to this day, the near non-existence of a meaningful local, regional or national plan for restoration. Hurricane Katrina didn’t even rate a mention in President Bush’s State of the Union Address on January 23, 2007, little more than a year after the storm and flooding that devastated the city and the Gulf Coast. “Marie and Michael after Katrina” is a short play about two residents who stayed during the storm, and who, like so many others in New Orleans, continue to show the strain of the months of apathy that have followed. The solo play was written during a graduate course in Adaptation of Literature for the Stage, and it focuses on a cousin in Jefferson Parish who survives the floods—along with dozens of other people from surrounding parishes—at a local bar, and on the kitchen manager who keeps the bar open, and is, a year later, in the looney bin. Set during the flooding and also several months afterwards, this performance piece is an attempt to show not only the devastation during and immediately following Katrina, but also, months later, the ongoing effects of the utter lack of response to the worst natural disaster of our time.
