Abstract: This paper maps a Women and Gender Studies multidisciplinary collaboration in installing a One Billion Rising, Stop Violence Against Women, “Dance,” Flash-mob,” and “Open-mic” performance. Using the conference subtheme ”body politics,” this paper highlights multiple points of encounters to its One Billion Rising project which bridged diverse disciplines and activist platforms to Ensler’s (2013) transnational One Billion Rising dance initiative. Cvetkovitch's (2007) "public feelings" project helps interrogate ways activism, academia, and performance construct private bodies as representations of national resistance to public trauma staged in gendered-based violence movements.

Abstract: Lately there has been much interest from scholars in the process whereby social movements lead to the creation of new markets. However, two aspects of this process remain understudied. First, while movements that have leveraged moral capital to achieve their aims have been looked at, those which need to strip such capital to commodify social and cultural practices have received less attention. Second, scholars have tended to focus almost exclusively on the central movement often at the expense of exploring the interaction across parallel movements and how they feed on each other. In this article, we address these aspects of social movements. Specifically, we look at the dramatic transformation of yoga from a spiritual and even religious practice – almost entirely based on meditation and repudiation of conspicuous consumption and vanity – to a $60 billion lifestyle market thriving on body image. We identify and elaborate on three distinct mechanisms that underpin this transformation of yoga. First, we explain how selective desacralization stripped yoga of its religious baggage while maintaining certain rituals and symbols for a veneer of authenticity. Second, we describe how syncretization rendered an austere and moral movement compatible with the excesses of consumer culture. Finally, yoga was de-essentialized cleansing it of its philosophical essence and making it part of the larger fitness field.

"Measuring Trade Profiles with Two Billion Observations of Product Trade" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the APSA Annual Meeting & Exhibition, TBA, San Francisco, CA, <Not Available>. 2019-11-13 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1246453_index.html>

Abstract: The product composition of bilateral trade encapsulates complex relationships about comparative advantage, global production networks, and domestic politics. Yet, despite the availability of product-level trade data, most researchers rely on either the total volume of trade or arbitrary sets of aggregated products in part because it is difficult to effectively summarize this massive amount of product-level data. In this paper, we address this big-data problem by developing a new dynamic clustering method. The proposed method classifies a set of dyads into several clusters based on their similarities in trade profile - the product composition of imports and exports - capturing the evolution of the resulting clusters over time. We apply this method to two billion observations of product-level annual trade flows based on over 600 products for more than 59,000 directed dyads from 1962 to 2014. We show that typical dyadic trade relationships evolve from zero trade to comparative advantage and then to intra-industry trade. Finally, we illustrate the critical roles of our trade profile measure in the analysis of trade competition and bilateral investment treaties and the investigation of trade and security linkages.
