1. Laz, Cheryl. "Organic industry or organic movement? A case study of organic agriculture in Maine" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, TBA, New York, New York City, Aug 11, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2019-12-07 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p183934_index.html>

Abstract: This paper investigates organic agriculture in Maine, with a comparative eye turned to the opposite coast. California’s organic agriculture has been the subject of intense scrutiny (Guthman 2004; Mello 2006; Pollan 2006) and many have reached the conclusion that organic agriculture is bifurcated into an organic industry and an organic movement. Recent analyses have also shown how the organic industry has come to dominate organic agriculture and to replicate many of the undesirable features of conventional agriculture. The analysis of organic agriculture in Maine reveals that, at present, Maine has avoided many of the negative consquences of the organic industry, largely because of the smaller size and scale of the organic sector in Maine and through a deliberate (and state-supported) strategy of localization. Maine’s organic agriculture remains closer to the organic ideal type and to its movement origins, and hence provides one model for an alternative and sustainable agriculture.

Abstract: Previous communication studies pertaining to organ procurement and donation have identified attitudinal and knowledge characteristics that accompany the (un)likely donor, but have yet to fully investigate the influence and interactions of dual processing and prospect frames employed by organ donation campaign messages. A randomized 3 (Appeal: narrative vs. statistical vs. combination) x 3 (Frame: gain vs. loss vs. combination) factorial design (N=962) was conducted. Results indicated that no message was more persuasive in changing the intention of the participant to sign an organ donor card. Additionally, personality characteristics such as openness (intellect), conscientiousness, and agreeableness were seen to have an effect on intent to sign an organ donor card when compared to identifying highly with personality characteristics such as extraversion or neuroticism. Implications for health campaign theory and design are considered.

"When Is a Women's Organization a Movement Organization?: A Comparison of Feminist and Non-feminist Organizations" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Atlanta Hilton Hotel, Atlanta, GA, Aug 16, 2003 Online <.PDF>. 2019-12-07 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p106764_index.html>

Abstract: This paper attempts to determine empirically ways that women’s movement organizations differ from other women’s organizations that are not part of the movement.

Are women’s movement organizations a different species from other women’s organizations? Is an organization run by women and catering to women’s needs part of the women’s movement? What are the essential qualities of WMOs that separate them from non-movement organizations?

This empirical study compares women’s movement organizations (WMOs) on multiple dimensions to other women’s organizations that are not part of the movement. The objective is to confirm or challenge the accepted wisdom about the ideal type of social movement organization. The study confirms some of the arguments put forward by social movement scholars while challenging others.

The study is based on primary survey data collected in India. Organizational profile of forty
women’s organizations provides information on several dimensions on which they are
compared – internal (founding years, size, leadership, structure, funding source, strategies
and tactics) and external characteristics (relations with the state, other civic groups, political
parties, and international links).
