Abstract: Given the growing skepticism and public leadership that counters the known scientific image in the US, there is a need to ask what is data and what is knowledge in this (increasingly) populist era, and how might alternate modes of data collection counteract the governance shifts disrupting conventional modes of data collection. Applying alternative ’smart city’ technologies, citizen sensing has become a crucial mechanism through which activists, citizens, and researchers monitor and understand environmental conditions. Citizen sensing can do more than carry on a legacy of data collection from authoritative sources, it can precipitate change in the way environmental problems are identified, framed, and characterized. No longer the exclusive purview of highly-trained professionals, the opportunity to program environmental sensors - to produce the data collection system - is increasingly accessible to a broader spectrum of actors, including people who have historically been excluded from mainstream environmental policymaking because of their lack of academic training or political connections. Although a setback for established environmental research, this political era may open up spaces for marginalized actors to take the lead in creating new ways of knowing urban environments typically dismissed as places of poverty, crime, and unemployment. This paper synthesizes literature on smart cities, environmental justice, and critical data studies for a case study of a youth-led citizen sensing effort in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, demonstrating the potential of this alternate approach to refashion the power dynamics associated with entrenched processes of environmental governance in the United States.

Abstract: Recent immigration from the Caribbean, Africa and Europe has been overshadowed by immigration from Asia and Latin America, but these newcomers are of particular theoretical importance because they represent the immigrant analogs of the two most disparate and diametrically opposed American racial groups—Black and White Americans. This study employs data from the Current Population Survey (1996-2002) to compare patterns of educational and occupational achievement and mobility among Black and White immigrants. It is found that while the adult children of immigrants, irrespective of race, are doing significantly better than the immigrants themselves, racial disparities do exist. Upward mobility is, on some measures, more pronounced in the White immigrant population. While Black and White immigrants are practically identical in terms of educational attainment, the adult children of White immigrants have completed, on average, more years of education and are significantly more likely to have graduated high school than their Black counterparts. Patterns of occupational mobility seem to favor Black immigrants—particularly second generation Black women.

Abstract: This study explored opportunities and challenges of new media for volunteer workers in civic organizations. Interviews revealed that computer and mobile communication technologies have become integral tools for volunteers in the sample. Opportunities of these media include the cultivation of mobility and information capital and the softening of space and time during civic engagement. Challenges include the blurring of boundaries between civic, work, and personal life, as well as a generational digital divide.

Abstract: China has a long tradition of private higher education, going back to two thousand years ago. In the first half of the twentieth century many private universities were established, some fostered by patriotic scholars or industrialists, such as Nankai under Zhang Boling, Fudan under Li Denghui, Xiamen University supported by Chen Jiagen, others by Christian missionary organizations, such as St. Johns in Shanghai and Yen Ching in Beijing. With the successful revolution of 1949, however, private universities were either closed or merged with newly reorganized public higher institutions, and a system of macro-planning, close to that of the Soviet Union, shaped an approach to higher education that was fully public and highly elite. Only after the reforms of 1978, was there an opening for private institutions to be established, while the move to mass higher education in the later 1990s made possible rapid expansion in this newly developing sector. In this presentation, three rather different types of private university are profiled: Yellow River in Henan province, one of the earliest and most successful cases, run along the lines of a family enterprise; Xi’an International University in the Northwest, run by a highly entrepreneurial president, and Blue Sky University in the southern province of Jiangxi, established with a special concern for providing access to the handicapped and socially marginalized. This presentation will highlight some of the core characteristics of private higher education in China, the contribution it is making, and the challenges faced by this sector.

Abstract: Social media tools have opened up vast new means for communication, socialization, expression, and collaboration. They also have provided new avenues for researchers seeking to explore, observe, and measure human opinions, activities and interactions. While scholars, professional societies, and institutional review boards have long-established research ethics frameworks to ensure the rights and welfare of the research subjects are protected, the rapid rise of powerful social media platforms – where individuals increasingly share personal information on platforms with porous and shifting boundaries – provide new challenges to long-held ethical assumptions and guidelines. This talk will present various cases of social media-based research that expose new conceptual gaps in how we think about privacy, anonymity, consent, and harm in the 2.0 era.
