Publication Type: Individual Paper
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: Emerging research suggests that term limits are beginning to alter traditional patterns of political ambition among elected officials. For example, Powell (2000) found increased competition for U.S. House seats in states where state legislators are term limited. Similarly, Powell (2002) finds evidence for a "churning" effect in
which elected officials rotate through various offices in the face of term limits. This actually has the effect of hindering the goal of term limits advocates in encouraging citizen-led government.
In this paper, we undertake a significant extension of our prior research on the career paths of state legislators by examining the pre- and post-legislative careers of all legislators departing from the Maine and Ohio legislatures. Our focus on all departing legislators, rather than just those being term limited, allows us to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of term limits on the career paths of various types of legislators. We employ control variables for a wide-range of theoretically significant influences on political ambition.
Most of the early research on term limits has consisted of single-state studies. Our focus on both Maine and Ohio has the advantage of allowing us to control for very different political settings in terms of legislative professionalization, political culture, and differences in the structure of political opportunities.

Abstract: Move-In operations for colleges and universities offer a unique opportunity to immediately engage the student, faculty, and staff communities in sustainable practices. Uniting a diverse set of on-campus groups with the mission of lessening the impact of residence hall move in is a great way to connect campus community members not normally actively engaged in campus sustainability activities.

By recruiting volunteers from student organizations and engaged learning groups, we are able to capture more recycling and share the sustainability mission of the university more effectively to a greater number of people including parents, brand-new freshman, and current students, faculty, and staff. With concentrated efforts to green your move-in, you can have record recycling numbers, better brand reputation, and more opportunities for campus engagement in your sustainability efforts.

Making a “green” Move-In a priority will put your department at the forefront of campus operations and student life, which pays major dividends throughout the rest of the year.

Abstract: Few empirical studies, however, have examined the consequence of gentrification; even fewer have examined the impact of gentrification on the displacement of crime and people over time and space. Given this dearth of research, our study examines whether gentrification contributes to displacement effects on the neighborhoods surrounding gentrifying areas. Specifically, we investigate whether gentrification in one neighborhood leads to higher crime and population shifts in nearby areas. Since gentrification is associated with an improvement in the housing stock, we measure gentrification as changing home values in a given neighborhood. As home values increase and new residents move into a gentrifying neighborhood, existing tenants may no longer be able to afford costs of living and as a result may relocate to other areas of residence. In this way, we hypothesize that gentrification will lead to the displacement of impoverished residents from the focal neighborhood to the surrounding areas. The influx of higher income households is also associated with a reduction in crime in gentrifying neighborhoods due to the increased economic resources to prevent victimization. If this is the case, criminogenic persons may choose to victimize the non-gentrifying areas where the likelihoods of detection and apprehension are lower. Therefore, we assess whether gentrification also leads to changes in the crime rates in nearby neighborhoods.
