1. Gaddy, Beverly. "Friendship, Neighbor-Love, and Enemy-Love: Kierkegaard's Works of Love as (Impossible) Politics" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association, Hyatt Regency Chicago and the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers, Chicago, IL, Aug 30, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-03-23 <>

Abstract: This paper posits an (impossible) politics of love through an examination of Soren Kierkegaard's Works of Love, which (it is argued) is perhaps one of Kierkegaard's most political works. Jacques Derrida's The Politics of Friendship and Carl Schmitt's The Concept of the Political, among other works, helps to demonstrate the political nature of Kierkegaard's model of Christian love.

2. Abdurraqib, Samaa. "Love for You, Love for Allah: Expressions of Love and Sexuality in Muslim Women's Memoirs" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Oakland Marriott City Center, Oakland, CA, Nov 08, 2012 <Not Available>. 2019-03-23 <>

Abstract: This paper looks at the articulation of love, romance, and relationships in popular memoirs and personal narratives by Muslim women. I argue that these personal narratives contest Western hegemonic views of Muslim women’s “secret lives” in two ways. First, they work against the notion of Muslim women who have no agency in their love lives and who are, at best, devoid of any sexuality. Second, by opening up space for different articulations of love (i.e., polygyny, abstinence, arranged marriages), these memoirs ask readers to consider love and relationships outside of the framework of popular Western notions of romantic attachments.

"Why Don’t You Love Me As Much As I Love You?: Unrequited Love and Construction of Korean Diaspora in the United States" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, New Orleans Sheraton, New Orleans, LA, May 27, 2004 Online <.PDF>. 2019-03-23 <>

Abstract: When does a transnational community become a diaspora and why? This paper attempts to answer these questions by exploring the social constructed aspect of diaspora with a case study of Korean diaspora in the United States. The phenomenon of Korean diaspora encompasses a set of cultural, social and post-colonial relations between Korea and the United States for the past 100 years, as well as the internal racial relations and power structure within the United States. The unequal relationship between Korea and the United States has not only formed the motivational factors that promote Korean immigration to the United States, but also influenced the ways in which Korean immigrants experience America and position themselves in the United States. The racial hierarchy in the United States fosters a critical preconditional context in which Korean Americans maintain or seek out their ethnic identity and culture. The key argument in this paper is that Korean Americans’ retention or revival of diasporic identity is not so much a consequence of Koreans Americans’ inherent desire to maintain their ethnic heritage but rather an inevitable phenomenon in white-privileged society that marginalizes non-whites from mainstream social scenes.

4. Krasnoselskaya, Yulia. "The Economics of Love and the Economy of Love in Tolstoy's 'Anna Karenina'" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASEEES Convention, Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-03-23 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This presentation will discuss why Tolstoy in Anna Karenina uses language borrowed from economics when writing about love. Tolstoy believes that there is a clear correlation between one’s private and public
behavior, as well as between one’s views on love and on economics. In Anna Karenina he describes
"English" and "French" economic models -- and "English" and "French" models of love -- as popular but unnatural,
because in both "English" and "French" lifestyles the economic component of life conflicts with the
romantic one. As this paper will demonstrate, the most “natural” behavior and the specific “Russian” type
of economics according to Tolstoy should avoid this contradiction of private and public
and should be based on the ideal of “moderation” or “economy”.

5. Weissinger, Sandra. "For the love of Jesus, for the love of money: Black churches and their struggle to navigate Wal-Mart Stores, dignity at work, and social justice related activism" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting, Sheraton Boston and the Boston Marriott Copley Place, Boston, MA, Jul 31, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2019-03-23 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Wal-Mart has been accused of: violating labor laws; providing pay and benefits that do not allow workers to escape poverty; and discriminating against workers in terms of hiring, promotion, and occupational duties. Conversely, the company has been praised for: being the largest private employer in the United States; giving donations to community groups neighboring their stores; and having affordable prices. This project takes place in two Christian church communities where leadership has published very different opinions about Wal-Mart stores.
I seek to examine how members of fundamental nondenominational Christian communities use their religious ideologies to navigate social problems such as inequality at work, environmental and institutional racism, violence, underemployment and unemployment. Using ethnographic methods, I will analyze how congregation members talk about Wal-Mart, work, and social problems. I hope to illuminate the various ways religious socialization, race, class, gender, age, geographic location, and other categories of difference work together to shape one’s perceptions and actions towards social problems and community needs. Often, studies of black churches fail to: acknowledge church members’ relationships to the communities in which their churches are housed; compare and contrast congregation’s views and activities across rural and urban geographic locations; and provide rich ethnographic descriptions of more than one congregation. Addressing these gaps as well as communities’ understanding of Wal-Mart stores is the aim of this study.
