1. Hernandez, Christine. "Connections for Transformation: Connecting Feminist Research Methods with Critical Race Theory" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, SHERATON HOTEL (DOWNTOWN) ATLANTA, Atlanta, GA, <Not Available>. 2019-10-14 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p550046_index.html>
Publication Type: Poster
Abstract: This poster employs feminist methods and critical race theory to interrogate the role that history/heritage months have on the climate on university campuses. For example, the research raises questions about the role of history/heritage months on the collective identity of the campus, the collective identity of marginalized groups, and the overall campus climate. The conclusions suggest that whereas history/heritage months may contribute to a positive collective identity for marginalized groups, there are environmental effects that limit the overall impact on the wider campus climate.

Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: The headline from a 2009 UK newspaper read, “Girls trapped in storm drain use Facebook to call for help…instead of calling emergency services.” Luckily, a schoolmate saw the status update and summoned aid. Stories like this share a common thread: people in trouble turn to what they believe is the quickest way to get help -- their preferred social media tool.
This same social media technology has spawned numerous community volunteer efforts that have been instrumental in adding vital and accurate information used by first responders. Additionally, growing networks of communities want to assist in times of emergency, and they are using social media tools to organize and deliver aid.

Abstract: Our research is part of our fourth East York project, examining the role of digital media in how older adults mobilize social support. We focus here on 42 interviews with older adults 65+, residing in the Toronto locality of East York. We find that digital media help in the mobilization process of social support and strengthen existing social ties both with close and distant contacts. This is especially important for those who—or their companions—have limited mobility. Once older adults start to use digital media, the technology becomes routinely incorporated into their lives. They use digital media as well as telephoning to maintain existing relationships, but not to develop new ones. Companionship is the predominant type of support exchanged. Contradicting fears that digital media is inadequate for meaningful contact, the participants consider digital media to provide ‘real’, not ‘token’, support. Those older adults who use digital media to communicate add their exchange of support to that which they provide in-person and by telephone. Our research suggests that efforts need to be placed in strengthening existing networks, rather than in establishing interventions that are outside of older adults pre-existing ties. Learning how to master technology is in itself a form of social support mobilization that provides opportunities to strengthen older adults’ networks.

Abstract: For the past 40 years, entrepreneurs and researchers have assumed that entrepreneur networks are important and beneficial for startup ventures. Research has shown that startup ventures benefit from entrepreneur networks in various ways ranging from establishing credibility in the market, accessing competitive information and opportunities, to accessing skilled people and establishing competitive collaborations. This study takes this notion further by testing whether these benefits actually translate into tangible financial outcomes for a startup. For this purpose, the study integrates two extensive databases that have not been studied together in previous research: Crunchbase.com, which provides extensive information on the financial success of startup companies, and LinkedIn, which provides extensive social network information of founders. The analysis revealed that several variables in LinkedIn profiles were positively correlated with the amount of funds raised by startup companies establishing a link between social networks and entrepreneurial success.
