Abstract: Using their essay by the same title in Critical Transnational Feminist Praxis as a jumping off point, members of Ananya Dance Theatre explore their critical and creative engagement in this women of color dance company and community, as well as possibilities for conducting this work in other sites. Specifically, and through dialog and multimedia (powerpoint, slides, video, etc.) participants will discuss building alliances across communities of color, brown postmodernism, the politics of authenticity, oppositional artistic production and the nonprofit industrial complex, organizing through art-making, and the intersection of feminisms and dance.

Abstract: Population mixing can have dramatic health effects, as seen with the Spanish introduction of smallpox to New World inhabitants. Health effects can also be subtle, especially given the long latency of some diseases (e.g., cancers). In this paper we investigate how socioeconomic factors and population mixing relate to the relative health of populations at the county level. Assessment of the stable population is necessary to correctly determine the “at-risk” population for either the incidence or prevalence of morbidity/mortality within a population. Further, understanding population migration flows can reveal the role that place versus the population (or community) play in morbidity and mortality outcomes. We categorize the dataset by non-metro versus metro and, separately, healthy (low mortality) versus unhealthy (high mortality) counties. Using all-causes-of-mortality as the health outcome and socioeconomic factors as controls, we test the importance of county-level population stability, in-migration and out-migration. Both in- and out-migration rates are negatively associated with mortality rates except in unhealthy places, while population stability (non-movers) is positively associated with mortality rates no matter how counties are grouped. This finding supports previous research from other countries, indicating that healthy people move from unhealthy places while unhealthy people remain in unhealthy places, as well as supporting parallel research in the migration patterns of the poor, where migration is found to maintain and reinforce spatial concentrations of poverty. We conclude that population stability reinforces ill-health status of county populations while in- and out-migration is correlated with improving county-level health status.

Abstract: American children move more than children from other post-industrial societies. While much is known about the short-term impact of residential mobility on educational performance, less is known about its long-term effect. Social capital theory suggests that high residential mobility has negative consequences for adolescents because it disrupts vital community ties. In this study, I use the National Education Longitudinal Study to explore the impact of residential mobility on high school and college graduation. I also consider the mediating role of family demographic characteristics and social capital. The results suggest that residential mobility during high school reduces an adolescent’s chance of graduating from high school and college. In addition, I find that family social capital has a unique and distinct effect and does little to alleviate the negative impact of residential mobility. Thus more needs to be done to better understand and offset the negative impact of residential mobility on the educational attainment of American youth.
