"Racial Conservatism and Support for the Court: Did Whites Notice the Rehnquist Turn to the Right on Race?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association, Boston Marriott Copley Place, Sheraton Boston & Hynes Convention Center, Boston, Massachusetts, Aug 28, 2002 <Not Available>. 2019-11-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p65948_index.html>

Abstract: From 1980 to 2000, the Supreme Court made a number of key rulings that touched on matters of race, including employment law, affirmative action, racial redistricting, and discrimination within the criminal justice system. In most of these cases, the Court took a more conservative tack towards racial matters, reflecting the increasingly conservative bent of the Court. The change in the Court, from the most liberal national institution on race from 1954-1976 (with the possible exception of 1963-68 when LBJ was in the White House), to the most conservative from 1992-2000 (with the possible exception of Congress during the 1994 Republican Revolution) , was quite dramatic. This paper examines whether support among whites for the Court was affected by the shift. In the deepest sense, does the American public follow broad changes in the Court's fundamental outlook on one of the most enduring issues in American politics?

"The Misguided Quest for Darwinian Conservatism" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association, Marriott, Loews Philadelphia, and the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA, Aug 31, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-11-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p153447_index.html>
Publication Type: Proceeding
Abstract: In recent years a number of conservative intellectuals have urged the conservative movement to draw on Darwinian biology for support. No one has been more articulate in championing “Darwinian conservatism” than political theorist Larry Arnhart, who suggests in his book Darwinian Conservatism that conservatism is doomed unless it embraces Darwinian theory. This paper argues that the quest to found conservatism on Darwinian biology is misguided and fundamentally flawed. Contrary to Arnhart, James Q. Wilson, and others, Darwin’s theory manifestly does not reinforce the teachings of conservatism. It promotes ethical relativism rather than traditional morality. It fosters utopianism rather than limited government. It is corrosive, rather than supportive, of both free will and religious belief. Finally, and most importantly, Darwinian evolution is in tension with the scientific evidence, and conservatism cannot hope to strengthen itself by relying on Darwinism’s increasingly shaky empirical foundations.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: The social conservatism of rapidly growing evangelical and fundamentalist groups in the United States has been well documented, including their support for a gendered division of roles and responsibilities within marriage. Here we explore the impact of religious conservatism on the life course transitions and labor market outcomes of black and white men Using the National Survey of Families and Households 1988 wave, this paper empirically examines how men raised in conservative religious denominations deal with the dual imperatives of breadwinning and involved fatherhood. We attend to patterns of family formation to see if men from conservative households marry and begin families at younger ages, and then explore any additional impacts of religious upbringing on fathers’ current gender ideology, work hours, or earnings.

5. Das, Shyamal., Eargle, Lisa. and Esmail, Ashraf. "Why Do Some Heterosexual Men Have More Female Sex Partners Than Others?: Sexual Conservatism, Rape Myth Acceptance, Preference for Temporary Relationships, and Socioeconomic Status" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Aug 10, 2006 Online <PDF>. 2019-11-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p96794_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: The present paper addresses certain factors that determine why some heterosexual men have more female sexual partners than others. Men’s exploration of multiple female sex partners can be measured by their frequency of buying sex services from prostitutes and keeping sexual relationships with multiple women within a short span of time. The paper argues that men’s differential resource attainment, their conservatism or progressivism about sexual behavior in general, and their belief system in regard to stereotypes or myths pertaining certain “expected” behaviors for women may result in some men’s preference for temporary relationships to conventional ones, which ultimately makes differences among men in exploring multiple female sexual partners. In so doing, the paper shows pathways among aforementioned social-psychological factors.
