1. Hill, Tony. "Non-Results and a Few Results from Exit Polling in Canada, January 2006" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association, Palmer House Hotel, Chicago, IL, Apr 12, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-06-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p198901_index.html>

Abstract: The author attempted exit polling during advance poll voting and the general election in January 2006 to understand how and if party and candidate mobilization occurs. The polling was generally scuttled by Elections Canada and by other problems involved in trying to conduct exit polling remotely. The paper shares the problems that occurred and a few results reached by a very small N and offers suggestions to scholars who desire to exit poll in Canada in the future.

Abstract: The unsuccessful January Uprising of 1863-5 in Poland, in which Polish insurgent forces attempted to wrest control of Polish territory from Russian government, was extraordinarily effective in one regard: it acted as a cornerstone for the construction of cultural understandings of nation and national identity. In the absence of political sovereignty, the “imaginary community” of the Polish nation was sustained through its reflections in contemporary art and literature.
This presentation will examine the visual articulations of the Uprising and its characteristics, consequences and aftermath in the works of two of the most prominent Polish artists of the 19th century: Artur Grottger and Jacek Malczewski. Born a generation apart, Grottger and Malczewski made use of very different modes of representation in their responses to historical events under partition. I will argue that these differences transcend generational divisions of style and reflect a greater shift in contemporary social attitudes towards the question of Polish autonomy. Grottger created five cycles of drawings inspired by the the Insurrection. In so doing, he narrativized the political landscape of partitioned Poland, normalizing notions of sacrifice, exceptionalism and martyrology. Decades after the appearance of Grottger’s series, Krakow modernist Jacek Malczewski created Symbolist paintings that contained oblique references to the Uprising, throwing the values espoused by Grottger’s work into question. Malczewski’s work, with its combination of ambiguity, pessimism and doubt, mirrored the modernist angst of the fin-de-siècle and its approach to national identity. These differences in approach and style mirrored changing concepts of nationalism among Poles and suggested the ways in which cultural responses to historical events both reflect and shape communal understandings of nation.

Abstract: Prevailing understandings of labour protest and strikes take as their focus stable democratic settings where autonomous trade union structures are an established component of the organizational resources available to workers. We extend the analysis of labour mobilization to a radically different context: Egypt in the year of the 25th January Revolution, when workers mobilized en masse in the absence of union leadership. For this, we use a catalogue of 4,912 protest events reported in Arabic-language newspapers. State-level signals of opportunity and aggregate shifts in economic conditions are poor predictors of labour activism in this context. Instead, local and national mobilization advancing both labour and non-labour demands is shown to inspire subsequent labour protest. These findings speak to the value of understanding labour protest and strikes not as delimited domains of action but as parts of a wider universe of contentious politics.

Abstract: This study presents the results of two comparative surveys of Egyptian print journalists carried out in late 2008 and summer 2013, respectively. The surveys aimed to assess aspects of Egyptian print journalism practice and professionalism at two different points in time – during the late Hosni Mubarak era, and during Mohammed Morsi’s one-year term in office. Specifically, the surveys addressed journalism education and training quality, work routines, press freedom, and journalistic ideology. Results offer insights into the inner workings of Egyptian journalism before and after the 2011 Revolution that ousted Mubarak, and, importantly, a baseline on which to gauge Egypt’s future progress on key measures of journalistic professionalism.
