1. Casper, Steven. and Murray, Fiona. "From Communitarian to Commercial Exchange: Experiments in the organizational transformation of scientific exchange in population genetics" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Marriott Hotel, Loews Philadelphia Hotel, Philadelphia, PA, Aug 12, 2005 Online <PDF>. 2019-04-24 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p23026_index.html>

Abstract: This article examines the shift in the institution context for scientific exchange from a communal to a commercial setting and the empirical variation in the nature and success of organizational practices used by firms to structure this exchange in the shadow of the market. Firms play an increasingly central role in a wide range of relationships among scientists, between scientists and physicians and their patients. While such exchange practices raise a series of critical questions regarding the commodification of the human body, ethics and privacy, and the ownership of our common genetic heritage, the mechanisms through which the shadow of the market has shaped these transactions have not been studied. We also have a very limited perspective on the variation in the means through which organizations attempt to maintain the willingness of individuals to exchange while at the same time radically redefining the benefits of the exchange. The population genetics setting – the subject of this empirical analysis - has been subject to a recent shift in institutional norms from communal, with the interests of “science” as paramount, to commercial. It therefore provides us with an unusual opportunity to examine how in the light of the market imperative, firms use both commercial and communal norms to shape exchange and how individuals and communities choose to share, exchange and cede control of their assets in the shadow of the market.

2. Kenney, Richard. "(Re)Considering Communitarianism: Choosing and Applying a Radical Alternative to News Coverage" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Sheraton New York, New York City, NY, Online <PDF>. 2019-04-24 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p13143_index.html>

Abstract: More than a decade after the book Good News: Social Ethics and the Press proposed a radical departure from conventional journalism, communitarianism remains an understated and misunderstood voice in the contemporary debate about press ethics theories. Communitarianism has been posited at the foundation of the public/civic journalism movement, which has both boosters and detractors. This paper goes beyond a debate about public/civic journalism to return to the original conception of communitarianism as a normative press ethic. By analyzing value-laden choices of language and representation in a case study of one ongoing newspaper story over a period of nine months, I explore whether and how communitarianism might apply to specific news coverage. The resulting critique suggests how a truly communitarian press might provide an alternative coverage that focuses more on ethical considerations and less on the amoral craft conventions of traditional journalism.

Abstract: ABSTRACT: Drawing on a survey of over 4,000 respondents, this article argues that, contrary to claims by the 1994 Zapatista insurgency, indigenous and non-indigenous respondents in southern Mexico have been united more by socioeconomic and land tenure institution variables than by ethnic identity. Based on statistical models it concludes that in rural southern Mexico, ethnicity alone was less important in shaping peoples’ attitudes than whether the dominant land tenure institutions are the “communitarian” state-penetrated ejidos of Chiapas, or the more “individualist” so-called communal lands of Oaxaca. It concludes by affirming that – contrary to many analysts of Chiapas’ 1994 indigenous rebellion – external influences (here state-established land tenure institutions) can trump ideology in framing social movements. Rural Chiapas’ prevalent communitarian attitudes would seem to have resulted partly from exogenous land tenure institutions (here the more communitarian collective farm or “ejido”), rather than from endogenous indigenous identities alone, as claimed by Zapatista advocates and many scholars.

Abstract: Liberalism and Communitarianism have supplied the two primary visions of American political thought. This essay argues that liberalism and communitarianism meet significant challenge from privatism, a political philosophy involving political detachment and the private valuation of experience. This essay will make the case for privatism through an investigation of some primary aspects of liberal and communitarian thought and the challenge privatism supplies through the opening lens of Henry David Thoreau, privatism's most regarded defender.
