1. Jenkins, Toby. "Calling Culture: Changing Paradigms of the Presence, Importance, and Definitions of African American Culture and Cultural Efficacy" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, Atlanta Hilton, Charlotte, NC, Oct 03, 2007 <Not Available>. 2020-01-27 <>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: This session shares the results of a qualitative study that examined how African American college age students describe their culture and why culture might be important to them. Grounded in the narrative tradition of storytelling, this study synthesizes themes from interviews and personal stories in the form of cultural self portraits. These self portraits are personal narratives of culture focused on cultural ideologies, histories, and experiences that influence the contemporary perception of culture among young African American adults. These contemporary ideas are then compared against a historical examination of African American culture beginning with enslavement in America to shed light on how culture has or has not been inherited, passed on, and kept alive in a contemporary world. Can our young people articulate their culture? Do they value it? Has race completely replaced culture? This sense of ongoing and growing cultural efficacy can be understood by considering iculture to be a flame ignited years ago in indigenous lands by our ancestors. Our acts of cultural engagement serve as elements to keep the flame going and growing [wood, charcoal, bark in the form of ritual, story, tradition]. And the fire—the culture itself—is the source that warms the chilliest of climates and energizes generations of people of color to live, survive, and thrive. The viability for cultural education programs to contribute to the needed growth in cultural efficacy among African American students offers cultural practitioners an important opportunity to gain more information and establish more intentional cultural practice.

2. Fried, Mindy. "Cultural Competence and Cultural Humility: Navigating Racialized Emotions, Class and Culture as an Outside Evaluator" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting, Pennsylvania Convention Center & Philadelphia Marriott, Philadelphia, PA, Aug 09, 2018 Online <PDF>. 2020-01-27 <>
Publication Type: 45-Minute Workshop
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: How do you feel working in an applied setting where people are “different” from you? How can you negotiate racialized emotions, class and culture in conducting applied research? How do you build trust among the people you are researching and authentically connect with them? The goal of this workshop will be to have an open dialogue about how one’s race/ethnicity, gender, class and age affects our work as applied sociologists.

We’ll begin with a short case study of an evaluation I’m currently conducting of a Wage Theft Campaign, organized by a coalition of immigrant worker centers and labor union officials. I will present how I have navigated my role as an evaluator and ally with key players, including what it means to be a white professional in this setting, and how I’ve worked to build trust in the process of designing research instruments, collecting data and presenting findings. I will then facilitate a dialogue with participants about their own work, focusing on navigating racialized emotions, class and culture as an applied sociologist. I’ll draw from literature on cultural competency and cultural humility, and pose a number of key questions, including the following:

• What are some considerations when you conduct research with people who are different from you?
• How do you ensure that the research questions accurately reflect the needs of key stakeholders?
• What are ways to engage participants as contributors in the process of conducting your research project?
• If you think others make assumptions based on what you look like or how you speak, how do/can you respond/behave?
• How do you establish that you’re someone who can be trusted?

My hope is that through this discussion, participants will strengthen their awareness of these complicated issues and will develop increased confidence to navigate racialized emotions, class and culture in their work.

3. Carrington, Ben. "The Two Cultures of Culture: Stuart Hall’s missing legacy from American cultural sociology" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting, Washington State Convention Center, Seattle, WA, Aug 17, 2016 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2020-01-27 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: On February 10th 2014, Stuart Hall passed away. Hall was one of the world’s leading cultural theorists. But Hall’s groundbreaking sociological approach remains directly at odds with what passes for sociological inquiry as practiced by many American sociologists. Taking its title from C.P. Snow’s famous lecture on the “The Two Cultures and the Scientific Revolution”, this paper, (i) traces the “two cultures” of sociological work on culture, the British Cultural Studies and American sociology of culture traditions, exploring how the object of inquiry has come to be framed in such diametrically opposed ways by each, (ii) I specifically compare and contrast the approaches and distinctive contributions of Hall and Patterson, using Patterson’s recent edited collection “Cultural Matrix: Understanding Black Youth” and Hall’s earlier texts “Resistance Through Rituals: Youth Subcultures in Post-War Britain” and “Policing the Crisis: Mugging, the State, and Law and Order” to help highlight and exemplify the different ways of understanding culture, identity, meaning and the role of the state, found within each author’s framework and (iii) I challenge recent arguments concerning the value of a “transdisciplinary” approach to the study of culture that some have argued is a “new” way forward for the study of culture. Instead, I suggest that a less myopic (and ultimately more meaningful and informed) American sociology of culture is possible if the five decades worth of intellectual contributions from sociologists such as Hall, and others, are acknowledged and taken more seriously by American sociology of culture scholars.
