Abstract: The Guide for Stalking Assessment and Management (SAM; Kropp et al., 2008) is the only existing stalking risk assessment tool, and has not yet been the focus of systematic validation research. We examined the validity of the SAM in a preliminary sample of twenty-five offenders convicted of stalking. Results show good convergent validity with the B-SAFER, a measure of intimate partner violence. SAM and PCL:SV were correlated, confirming previous findings that antisocial stalkers are more likely to recidivate. We discuss findings on the SAM’s predictive and incremental validity, as well as implications for use of the SAM in forensic settings.

Abstract: Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, and Michael Sam: Challenges to Football As Symbol, Practice, and Institutional Power

The focus of this paper is the game of football as a popular American cultural form, one in which institutionalized violence and the perpetuation of practices associated with war are integral to the game. In addition, those practices are commonly associated with values and beliefs associated with the denigration of women and homophobia. This paper will first examine football as the single most popular American sport, how the game of football mirrors American culture, and then analyze why the aforementioned events involving Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, and Michael Sam, challenge football as symbol, practice, and institutional power. The methodology used is broadly speaking cultural analysis, particularly Geertz’s thick description but it also involves newer cultural analysis using ideas developed by more contemporary cultural sociologists, such as, Ann Swidler, Pierre Bourdieu, Jeffrey Alexander, Philip Smith. Roger Friedland, and John Mohr.

3. Carroll, Carolyn. "The Resistance, Actions, and Outcome: The Desegregation of Sam Houston State Teachers College" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASALH Centennial Annual Meeting and Conference, Sheraton Atlanta Hotel, Atlanta, GA, <Not Available>. 2019-10-19 <>
Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: Based on archival research throughout East Texas, this paper will present a fresh take on the desegregation of Sam Houston State Teachers College. Past scholarship by historian Amilcar Shabazz, placed SHTC’s story within the larger narrative of school desegregation in Texas’s colleges and universities. Shabazz’s story covered only the ten-year period between Brown v Board of Education in 1954 and the admission of the first African American student to SHSTC in 1964. This paper will show that African Americans attempted to gain admittance to SHSTC years before Brown v Board, and it will also document the difficult years of actual integrations at SHSTC from 1964-1972. Using archival sources and oral interviews, the story of SHSTC’s desegregation will be broadened to include the stories of African American students’ quests at attend SHSTC, the desegregation of the college’s faculty and staff, and the process of desegregating the college’s athletic program. In addition, this paper will also show the steps taken by the Board of Regents of the Texas State Teacher’s Colleges, the colleges’ administration, and local and state officials to delay the integration of SHSTC.

4. Burford, Mark. "“Like me, he’s awful pretty”: Sam Cooke and Cassius Clay in Miami" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Studies Association Annual Meeting, TBA, Denver, Colorado, <Not Available>. 2019-10-19 <>
Publication Type: Internal Paper
Abstract: Sam Cooke and Cassius Clay shared a nationally televised coming out as intimates in Miami on February 25, 1964 during the chaotic aftermath of Clay’s shocking upset of Sonny Liston that earned him boxing’s heavyweight title. For many, Clay’s histrionic braggadocio, acceptance of the Nation of Islam, and taking of the name Muhammad Ali was an unsettling affront. Yet Cooke praised Clay as “one of the greatest entertainers and showmen” and “a great example for our youth.” In turn, Clay idolized the singer for his talent, independence, and effortless grace: “As you can see, like me, he’s awful pretty.”

One year earlier, Cooke recorded his gritty album Live at the Harlem Square Club in the heart of black Miami, even as his eye remained on upscale venues like the Copacabana. Cooke was also refining his political consciousness, calibrating gains of the civil rights movement against philosophies promulgated by mutual friend Malcolm X. Commentators celebrate Live at the Harlem Square Club and Clay-Liston as triumphs of a politics of style. But Cooke’s professional aspirations and Ali’s emerging iconicity indicate a reciprocal dialogue between entertainers and friends brokering the currency of black masculine public selves at the dawn of the soul era.
