Abstract: Educational aspirations and expectations are one of the strongest predictors of educational attainment (Goodenow, 1993). Many factors, including parental and teacher expectations, mediate youth’s educational expectations (Bouchey & Harter, 2005). However, several factors affect teachers’ expectations of students’ futures. Teachers often hold lower expectations of racial/ethnic minority students (Alvidres & Weinstein, 1999; Noguera, 2003). While parental educational aspirations may help insulate students’ expectations, minority students tend to report greater feelings of distrust towards their teachers and these feelings affect their achievement (Noguera, 2003). While much research has focused on mechanisms that increase expectations for minority students, few studies explore the effect of these mechanisms across different configurations of race, gender, and college generational status. In this study, I explore the effect of teacher expectations on the stability of minority students’ expectations between secondary and post-secondary education. I first examine how students’ perceptions of their teachers expectations for the future align with their own educational expectations. Second, I analyze how this alignment between perceived and actual expectations influences the stability of minority youth’s expectations. Using the Educational Longitudinal Study of 2002, I disaggregate the effect of this alignment along the lines of race, gender, and college-generational status—highlighting the within-group differences of Black and Hispanic students. Preliminary analyses suggest that this alignment has a strong, positive effect on the stability of first-generation minority students expectations compared with White students. In particular, the effect of the alignment between perceived and actual expectations is strongest for Black males compared with White males.

Abstract: I show how conflict outcomes affect leadership tenure by developing an explanation for popular ex-ante expectations about conflict. Leaders are rewarded or punished not based solely on outcomes, but on how outcomes compare with ex-ante expectations.

Abstract: In this paper, I review a portion of the literature regarding standpoint theory and “doing gender” theories. I suggest that a content analysis of pregnancy advice books would provide insight into the operation of both theories. Pregnancy is a uniquely feminine experience that is both an individual, bodily experience and a socially constructed situation. Pregnancy advice books, which are influential at both the individual and social levels, could reveal a great deal of information about the expectations and definitions that are applied to pregnancy in contemporary society.

Abstract: Experimental design was a 2 (literal vs. ironic) x 2 (compliment vs. criticism). The results indicate that the ironic messages were as effective as the literal messages. The ironic messages were also considered more negative, more unexpected, and more likely to be attributed to the sender than literal ones. Shared experiences between sender and receiver are argued as to why ironic message can be both negative and effective without being rejected.

Abstract: This paper explores the system of preference in relation to the production of second parts after assessments in posts on social networking sites (henceforth SNSs). The different expectations regarding what might be preferred seconds in interaction on SNSs, as compared to face-to-face interaction, suggest the need to consider the factors that have an influence on the system of preference operating in this new genre. Relevant studies in the sequential organization of agreeing and disagreeing turns (Sacks 1973, Pomerantz 1975, 1984, Goodwin and Goodwin 1987, Mori 1999) show that their turn shapes differ due to their status as preferred and dispreferred activities respectively. In an attempt to discover the devices used on SNSs interaction in order to mark preference, I will analyze a corpus of two hundred messages from one particular site, i.e., Facebook (FB), containing interaction among friends, as distinct from other academic or professional types of interaction on this SNS. The methodology for processing the data borrows techniques from Corpus Linguistics (CL), and draws upon analytic resources from Conversation Analysis (CA) and Discourse Analysis (DA), as discussed in previous research (Santamaría García 2011). I will draw upon appraisal theory (Martin and White 2000, 2005) and politeness (Brown and Levinson 1987), in order to explore the connection between preference and the expression of attitude (affect, judgement and appreciation) together with face management and interpersonal rapport.
Key words: conversation analysis, preference, agreement, social networking sites, internet-mediated interaction
