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: This is a case study one demographically changing suburban community that is shifting from predominantly white to Asian. Caught in the middle of these contemporary suburban migration patterns are middle- and lower-middle-class Whites who have not fled the demographically changing suburbs for more racially homogeneous suburban areas or gentrifying pockets of cities. In many instances, these White suburbanites now find themselves racial minorities in communities that look, but do not feel, much like the predominantly White suburbs in which they grew up. What happens in these moments of demographic desynchronized teaches us much about the future of a nation on its way to becoming a true melting pot with no White majority.
Our research focuses on the high school – the only one in this small suburban school district – which has shifted demographically from predominantly White as recently as the mid-1990s to predominantly Asian by 2008. Our focus on this school district and its high school – a place we call “Wellington” – allows us to illustrates what happens when White students are no longer “on top” academically after massive demographic change occurs and Asian families move in. Much like Jimenez and Horowitz’s (forthcoming) research on Cuppertino, CA, we learned that in Wellington, the racial encoding of academic achievement in predominantly Asian schools provides both impetus for and continuation of a construction of whiteness as having “lesser-than” status.

Abstract: “Taking Surgery Beyond the Limits of the Human Hand™” is one of the trademarks of Intuitive Surgical, manufacturers of the da Vinci® Surgical System (dVSS), the robot-assisted surgical platform that dominates the world market today. In this paper, which draws upon extensive ethnographic observation in the operating theaters of a major University teaching hospital, I explore how attending surgeons and their residents make sense of this ambivalent prosthetic enhancement, one that simultaneously augments their skilled capacities while constructing their “bare” bodies as deficient vis a vis the agencies of the machine. Surgical education programs embrace the cyborg figure of the “da Vinci Surgeon” for it all-but-guarantees post-residency employment for their trainees. At the same time, already evaluated according to a community standard of “machinic virtuosity,” surgeons struggle with the introduction of actually machine-mediated surgical practices in the operating room. They exacerbate perceived threats to surgeons’ professional autonomy in an era of managed care and corporate medicine, and open the practice of surgical craft to unprecedented grammatization and surveillance. This paper considers some of the imagined futures discussed by the medical community – from dystopias of professional obsolescence to utopic reclamations of humanistic medicine in which surgeons finally have the time to “really offer the care that only humans can.”

Abstract: Migration patterns in the United States both internally and from abroad must take into account the motivations that drive them, specifically the reasons why migrants believe they move. Many studies have focus on the human capital perspective to address the reasons for internal migration in the United States and migration from abroad (Bilsborrow and Akin 1982; Conway and Houtenville 2003; Curran and Rivero-Fuentes 2003; Elliott 1997; Fussell 2004; Greenwood 1985; Gurak and Kritz 2000; Jacobsen and Levin 2000; Kritz and Gurak 2001; Liberson and Waters 1987; Newbold and Spindler 2001; Reisinger 2003; Rogers and Henning 1999; Rogers and Raymer 1999; Rogers and Raymer 1999; Walters 2002). However, research based on a national representative sample capturing the reasons why people chose to migrate are limited. Presently, the Current Population Survey asks respondents who migrated within the previous year why they did so. Although, the reason why a person migrates may be different from the true cost and benefits of migrating, there is still value in assessing the migrants account of why they migrate.
