Abstract: As Black feminists, we talk about “breaking the silence,” “speaking out,” “talking back,” “telling your story.” As bell hooks tells us, this is a “gesture of defiance that heals” and creates the “liberated voice” (1989). In the first part of this paper, I provide a sociohistorical contextualization of incest in the Black American community. Then I explore the cultural definition of incest by looking at how we “define” incest in the Black American community through discourse analysis of several different types of sources. Once I “define” incest, I provide a discussion and end with conclusions and recommendations. Through looking at how Black Americans talk about incest, I am engaging in a project that looks at alternative explanations for the causes and distributions of mental health problems within a sociohistorical, body-centered frame.

Abstract: After the fall of Suharto led three decades of authoritarian government, President Habibie accomplished several achievements by opening up the press, ensure freedom of information and facilitated the first relative free-and-fair democratic legislative in 1999, but he still lost the election and his reelection campaign was dashed by Habibie inability in addressing corruption in the New Order era. There was a high hope that Gus Dur presidency after being appointed by the People Consultative Assembly (MPR) in 1999 would bring a significant governance reform and more progressive anti-corruption measures as for the first time two top leaders (Gus Dur and Megawati) was coming from an opposition leaders in the New Order era. Therefore, this paper attempts to evaluate the overall Gus Dur presidency in the context of governance reform and anti-corruption measures that will be structured into four sections. First section will outline the anti-corruption drive by President Abdurrahman Wahid, followed by his handling of Suharto’s family’s corruption cases in the second section. The significant backlash faced by Gus Dur in pushing for military reform will be discussed in the third section as well as his unsuccessful addressing of judicial reform in the fourth section. This paper will draw upon a range of primary sources including from Indonesian government such as relevant laws, presidential decrees, ministerial decrees, government regulations, presidential speeches and international donor reports or documents.

Abstract: Utilizing oral histories, in this paper I discuss the experiences of queer migrant Mexicana womxn who migrated to the United States and who returned to Mexico, either by choice or deportation. I argue that queer migrant returnee Mexican womxn engage in processes of home building as a form of resistance to experiencing displacement and systemic violence. These processes of home building are a form of decolonization to the imposed idea that queer migrant womxn are invisible and/or are not “worthy” of belonging to a community, in this case, the U.S.

Abstract: In the days and months after the November 2016 election, undocumented Latinos (among other vulnerable communities) questioned how their lives might change under a Trump administration. Would they have to worry about being deported to countries they’ve never known, or lose their eligibility for things like driver’s licenses and work permits? Stories of hate crimes and racial profiling, as well as actual deportations, created further fear and uncertainty. Using data from the Collaborative Multiracial Post-Election Survey (CMPS), collected from December 2016 to February 2017, and the 2012 Latino Immigrant National Election Study (LINES), collected October to December 2012 (with pre- and post-election waves), we examine the political attitudes and reported behavior of Latinos across immigration status (US born, noncitizen legal residents, and undocumented) in the Trump era and compare them to similar samples from four years earlier. We find significant evidence that Trump’s rhetoric and actions have increased anxiety but also increased non-electoral political participation among Latinos across status subgroups. Overall, we find heightened feelings of political cynicism, but also increased reports of engagement. Trump’s policies may be driving Latino undocumented immigrants back in the shadows to avoid deportation and detention, but they are also back on the (political) streets demanding that their voices be heard.

Abstract: “Living Simple” and “Back to the Land” movements of the latter twentieth century, championed by women like Helen Nearing, encouraged women to eschew beauty products and embrace a natural look. The beauty industry quickly co-opted this feminism with “natural-” and “organic-beauty” products, redirecting it back towards superficial “outer beauty.” Campaigns then and now claim that beauty products are chemical free, animal friendly, and deliver “beauty, truth, and harmony.”[1] Yet ultimately all this so-called “natural beauty” can be had for the market rate - quickly veering away from the intent of the “Back-to-the-Landers” who desired women’s independence, self-reliance, and pride.
