Abstract: This explorative study of foreign deployments examines international and domestic factors that drive European governments either to deploy troops abroad or to abstain from a deployment. Since governments are restrained both by public opinion and conditions at the international systems level, those factors may exert a considerable influence on the governmental decision regarding troop deployments.
Being a part of foreign policy analysis, foreign deployments as a unit of analysis have only hesitantly moved to the focus of academic research, particularly deployments of European countries. The study compares 14 deployments between 2000 and 2006 and analyzes the respective engagements or non-engagements of the German, French, British, Spanish, Austrian and Polish armed forces. All cases will be analyzed with respect to international systems variables such as alliance membership and alliance alignment, state actor level variables such as professionalization of the armed forces and historical ties towards the leading nation, and individual level data such as public opinion.
The paper aims to explore the systemic, actor specific and individual conditions of European troop deployments abroad in order to develop a middle range theory that may predict whether a country will participate in future deployments or not.

Abstract: After the end of Reconstruction, some blacks were disillusioned with race relations in North Carolina. With the enactment of the Homestead Act, western migration was encouraged. Dissatisfied with economic and political restrictions, African Americans were ready to migrate from the South and head westward. Leading black men such as Frederick Douglass and Charles N. Hunter, a black educator, perpetuated the myth of North Carolina being a “progressive” state. Proponents of the migration included Bishop Henry M. Turner and Samuel Perry, black migration leader, who believed blacks would have better economic and political success in Indiana or Kansas. By leaving North Carolina, many African Americans showed that they rejected the myth of good race relations in the state.

My primary research will largely come from the Manuscript collection of Charles N. Hunter, housed at Duke University. I also will be using the Report and Testimony of the Select Committee of the United States Senate to Investigate the Causes of the Removal of the Negroes from the Southern States to the Northern States. One of my secondary sources is A Nation Under Our Feet: Black Political Struggles in the Rural South from Slavery to the Great Migration by Steven Hahn.

Abstract: China’s Internet is becoming an increasingly important portion of the global Internet and the Internet becomes an important outlet for economic growth. In view of its strategic importance, the Chinese state is staking out a nationalist position, participating in international standardization organizations and even seeking to influence global Internet governance. Although trying to maintain the “Chinese” cyberspace, the state nonetheless has to accommodate cross-border corporate applications—as an “open” Internet is key to garnering commercial benefits. To evaluate China’s potential impact on the Internet and vice versa, this paper examines the country’s contradictory practices. Through a critical political economy analysis, it asks two sets of questions: 1) what is China’s evolving strategy towards US unilateralism in Internet governance? 2) Despite the popular analogy drawn by western media between the Chinese cyberspace and a “giant cage”, how does the Chinese Internet converge with the dominant global structure? And what forces are driving this convergence?

Abstract: The 2016 presidential election will no doubt stand as one of the most important and polarizing in our nation’s history. An election blurring the lines between the acceptable and unacceptable, it was also one in which voters saw no easy choice in their support of candidates from both major parties. An election cycle marked by endless drama regarding e-mails, cyber-hacking, and inflammatory comments on race, religion, and ethnicity, a central issue and one that has come into sharper focus now that the election is over is the “woman card”. Despite speculations that women would vote along gender lines, female voters in the 2016 election proved otherwise. Many presumed Donald Trump’s scathing attacks on women in the form of comments about their looks, sexual histories, and revelation that he could “do anything” to them, even “grab them by the pussy” would derail his chances at the presidency. They were wrong.
For many, Trump’s insults and locker-room talk did not to matter enough to outweigh Clinton’s recurring e-mail problems and political baggage. While Clinton’s unpopularity with white working class male voters was no surprise,many were shocked to find that a majority of white women did not vote for her either. However, Clinton had strong support from many women, especially women of color and more specifically, African American women who were among her most loyal supporters.
With key leadership roles during the campaign and at the Democratic National Convention (DNC), African American women would later vote for Hillary Clinton in larger numbers than any other group in the 2016 election. As delegates, super delegates, party officials, and voters, black women organized the convention around Clinton’s slogan of “stronger together” assembling a diversity of speakers to reflect upon the nation’s most pressing issues.
By examining black female turnout for Hillary Clinton, this paper will address why black women chose to be “with her” when so many others did not? How did their support for Clinton shape the tone of her message during the DNC? It will also analyze black women’s responses at the DNC to the election’s lack of civil discourse (i.e. the remarks of First Lady Michelle Obama). Thus, by evaluating the pivotal role of black women in support of Hillary during the convention and at the polls, the essay will address the affect this vision stands to have on future campaigns.

Abstract: In 1971, the first delegation of US scholars crossed the border from Hong Kong into the People’s Republic of China. They had been invited allegedly because they represented a “radical” organization—the Committee of Concerned Asian Scholars (CCAS)—vehemently critical of US policies in Asia and of the dominant academic views on China. A second delegation followed in 1972, both groups met with Zhou Enlai and members of the “Gang of Four,” but dreams of a sustained relationship based on political sympathy were quashed by the Nixon rapprochement. Instead, the China trips created a rift within CCAS, as they shifted its priorities towards an almost exclusive focus on the PRC. But also, and perhaps more significantly, by going to China, CCAS delegates found themselves in the position of other “fellow travelers,” caught in the tension between the desire to understand politically Chinese socialism and the need to explain Chinese realities scholarly, between friendship and investigation. This tension reflects a larger issue that sympathetic visitors of the PRC from all over the world faced: knowledge of revolutionary China could not be restricted to an assessment of concrete, factual truths, but should instead be based on a shared political horizon. By analyzing the CCAS trips and comparing them with travels by European visitors, this paper questions the always unresolved connections between seeing and understanding, personal experience and scholarly authority, politics and knowledge production.
