Abstract: This research aims to build deeper understandings of the interior experiential world of idiosyncratic mathematics. We seek to identify and relate intended and actual mathematical experiences, as they occur in complex relationships of participants involved in mathematics teaching and learning. The goals of this case study are to characterize individual experiences in ways that acknowledge a person’s active and reflective thinking efforts within problematic contexts linked to emotive dimensions of their lived and living mathematical experiences, in order to inform improved mathematics teaching practices. To probe these complex domains, we are using both phenomenological and constructivist theories and methods.

Abstract: Through in-depth life history interviews and standpoint methods, this qualitative study addresses gaps in the research literature in several fields regarding the experiences of Black women living with severe and persistent mental illness. While previous studies in social work, psychology, and public health have considered some facets of access to services and culturally-appropriate mental health treatment for common psychosocial disorders, the approaches taken often rely on practitioner’s reports and agency-based data rather than first-person reports and the women’s interpretations of their experiences living with mental illness. Current literature lacks depth of understanding of what Black women living with mental illness think about social, political, and economic consequences of issues stemming from race, gender, and mental illness. This research explores the prevalence and severity of the problem and the need for alternative approaches to institutional and policy responses that address the specific needs of Black women, their families, and their communities.

Abstract: For the past decade women in Africa have been making a name for themselves in politics, journalism, literature and entrepreneurship. This includes names such as Joyce Banda, the president of Malawi, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi, an esteemed Nigerian writer and Gichuru, an esteemed Kenyan Journalist and broadcaster. The ones that have been an inspiration to young African girls would be largely the African women who have made a global name for themselves in various disciplines for example, in literature Chimamada Ngozi Adichie (Nigerian) and Tsitsi Dangarembga (Zimbabwean) have earned themselves awards and global critical acclaim while stirring inspiration in hearts of young girls in Africa who grow up in cultures where women are taught to be overly-domesticated while also managing to change the views and perceptions of the world about Africa’s competence in the world of literature. Exploring these African women’s achievements would further reveal to us how their work in particular has made a difference in the young African girls’ lives.

Abstract: While medical brigades provide a transnational experience, student participants nevertheless fail to fully comprehend global struggles as they are limited by their brief, biomedical interactions with communities. Ethnography has the potentiality to not only dispel top-down approaches of biomedicine which regard health as merely the absence of disease or infirmity but more importantly, enrich understandings of global issues that deter the health of marginalized and neglected people living in poverty. By navigating historical, political, economic and social contexts, ethnography develops a framework not to life but rather to living. As further inquiry reveals a constant process of negotiating survival, this framework through ethnography simultaneously grounds lived experiences, enables a cultural consciousness of students, activists, physicians and future global health actors to discern the current, transnational existing dynamics of hegemony and power as manifestations of disparity in the local context, but more importantly rehumanize and repoliticize on the ground realities.

Abstract: Familial clustering of type 2 diabetes has traditionally been considered as sufficient evidence for a genetic cause of the disease. Yet interpersonal contact and interaction between family members can create social environmental and behavioral similarities, thereby giving rise to the same pattern of familial clustering, without a common genetic predisposition. Potential pathways through which interpersonal ties are linked to not only diabetes incidence, but also familial clustering of diabetes include: (1) social control of health-related practices through kinship ties in the family system (e.g., interpersonal encouragement of preventive screening); (2) social influence/contagion of lifestyle (e.g., similar diet preference in mother-child pairs and in siblings); (3) proxy for social determinants of disease that are not captured by individual social standing and family characteristics. Since interpersonal ties in families are social in nature and yet endogenous to genetics, properly identifying the influence of these ties is critical to understanding the balance between genetic and environmental sources of diabetes. In samples of sibling pairs (n = 4, 459) and couples (n = 5, 226) from the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study, this paper examines whether concordance/discordance in diabetes diagnosis between biological and non-biological kin pairs can be attributed to interpersonal contact and closeness in these pairs. The analysis tests whether commonality in diabetes between sibling pairs and that between couples are moderated by the degree of the pair’s connectedness. Results show that diabetes concordance/discordance varies by interpersonal contact, not biological relatedness. The same degree of concordance in diabetes diagnosis is observed in both sibling pairs and couples with consistent reciprocal contact. Pairs without such contact are discordant, regardless whether they are biologically related or not. Future research should continue to examine the sociogenic origins of disease and determine the relative magnitude of genetic and social environmental influences on diseases with varied genetic etiologies.
