Abstract: Abstract: This paper discusses the challenges that feminist researchers face when they use the positivist case study approach. The mainstream approach to case comparison requires feminist researchers to clearly define variables and work with a moderately sized “n.” I first describe why this perspective frustrates feminist researchers, for example, incorporating multiple cases could mean less expression of the complexity of gender. Despite challenges, in the second half of the paper, I argue that positivist principles and the comparative method can be beneficial to feminist researchers, specifically because they encourage sub-national and cross-national analyses – both of which are essential in a world that is both local and global in terms of politics and identities.

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate several key aspects of students’ academic and social life at Emmanuel College. Initial expectations and overall satisfaction within the college was analyzed. The researchers were interested in what factors led to how content students’ were with their social life and why. To get a broad range of data, several techniques were used including in-depth interviews, independent observations, focus groups and surveys. Upon finding what factors enhanced students’ social life the researchers wanted to find where students socialize and how vital a role location played in developing a strong social life. Because the environment in which one lives is such an important part of one’s life the researchers really wanted to explore how social satisfaction differed among those who lived on and off campus. The study concludes with suggestions to further enhance students’ social life at Emmanuel College in the future.

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to analyze the receptiveness of the Brazilian foreign policy to the domestic pressures in the case of the Brazilian positions at the G-20 in the WTO. We will investigate the weight that has the position of the governmental and non-governmental actors in the process of formulation and implementation of the Brazilian foreign policy. The position of the country, in the G-20, as well as the proposals presented, is related with the internal process of construction of the negotiating position and also with the limits that the logic of the negotiations establishes. Incorporating part of the literature on Foreign Policy Analyses, the objective of this research is to identify the domestic determinants of the Brazilian positions in the G-20. The final objective of the paper is to understand if the Brazilian foreign policy, when dealing with subjects that express diversity of domestic interests, as in the case of the country performance in the G-20, is receptive to the domestic demands, and, if this process results in a representative external action, considering the diversity of interests in the Brazilian society and also an action less concentrated in the bureaucratic agencies directly involved in the negotiation process.

Abstract: The purpose of this poster session is to use data from ongoing case studies of six Nevada middle schools involved in the state’s GEAR UP program to explore the connections and disconnections among interpretations of academic success. Our intent is to develop a more articulated and connected concept of academic success that supports “an equal shot” for underrepresented and first-generation college attendees.
