Abstract: We aim to show the trends in arts participation by race and ethnicity and seek to determine the degree to which a membership in a particular racial/ethnic group predicts participation in specific arts domains. Although it has been often questioned whether non-white Americans would be able to participate in arts as much as whites do, previous research provides conflicting perspectives on whether the gap is widening or narrowing.
Using data from the Survey of Public Participation in the Arts (SPPA) from 1982 to 2008, we observe significant racial differences in arts participation. As we control a number of socio-demographic variables, however, we find that race and ethnicity have different effects contingent on specific arts domain. In two-thirds of arts domains measured by the 2008 SPPA, blacks, Asians, and Hispanics are more likely than whites to participate in at least one specific arts type. We also show that both race/ethnicity and education have an independent impact on arts participation. Furthermore, the interaction between education and racial groups often reverses the effect of race and ethnicity on arts participation. We propose that education does not dwarf the effect of race/ethnicity, but may have different meaning and impact for various racial/ethnic groups.

How Social Scientists (Dis)Engage in Participation in a Flemish Stakeholder Forum on Nanotechnologies" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 4S Annual Meeting - Abstract and Session Submissions, Hyatt Regency Crystal City, Crystal City, VA, <Not Available>. 2018-04-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p371121_index.html>
Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: In November 2008 social scientists working in the area of participatory Technology Assessment (pTA) in Flanders, Belgium, initiated a Stakeholder Forum on nanotechnologies. This paper examines how they framed the meaning of public participation upon opening the Forum vis-à-vis the ways in which stakeholders translated it. It does so in view of the latter’s concluding recommendations on nanotechnology innovation, which from a social science perspective convey a ‘limited’ understanding of participation as a means of garnering public support for nanotechnology with little scope for public input. Based on this – purposefully focused – observation, the paper questions social scientists’ deliberate commitment to ‘detached observation’ throughout the event. By remaining silent during the deliberations they ‘gave in’ to the interests and objectives of outspoken actors. On the other hand, stakeholders noticeably accommodated strands of pTA discourse in their recommendations, indicating that the organizers may well have succeeded in setting the terms of the debate. The paper’s findings are used to call into question the pTA theorization of participation as a process of mutual learning and co-inquiry that redistributes power along various parties’ values and interests. Instead, it sees participation as an arrangement of power in which actors (implicitly) assign each other roles and responsibilities in attempts to govern one another’s contributions and behaviors. Seeking to open up these discursive struggles to joint critical reflection and exploration, it imagines a more overtly engaged role for social scientists in participation, as one that ‘draws out’ their participation commitments and agenda in direct confrontation with those of other participants.

Abstract: In the current era of expanded forms of participation, we have witnessed a proliferation of ways in which individuals are political engaged. This paper proposes an innovative conceptual and analytical framework for examining these expanded forms of participation through the lens of individual-level participation repertoires. It is clear that new forms of participation like internet activism are on the rise, and that activities once considered ‘unconventional’, such as petitioning and demonstrating, are becoming more common over time. Yet, political participation research has not honed in to clarify whether the individuals who are engaging in these expanded forms of participation are also the same individuals engaged in traditional forms of electoral participation. This paper suggests that the conceptual framework of individual-level participation repertoires yields insights regarding patterns of participation in an era of an expanded participation. Latent class analysis is introduced as a uniquely well-suited technique for empirically assessing repertoires of participation. I analyze data from the Pew survey on Internet and American Life from August 2008 which queries respondents on a wide array of political activities leading up to the 2008 U.S. Presidential election. The findings indicate that the conceptual framework of participation repertoires coupled with the use of latent class analysis point to even greater inequalities of patterns of political behavior than has been reported in prior research.

Abstract: The regional conflict and the inequality are important problems in post industrial democratic societies. Even in United States, the gap between "Red America" and "Blue America" has become large topics in national elections and informal social relations are important in society. The purpose of this study is to clarify the association between human relationships with influential people (relational resource) and participation behaviors by statistical analysis of survey data in Korea and Japan. There are some differences about participation behaviors and relational resources between Korea and Japan, and there are also differences between urban and rural areas in each countries. Korean people participate in many activities more than Japanese. Japanese have many informal relations with influential people than Korean. In rural area relatively many people have relational resources. This phenomenon is the result of large social changes in Korea and Japan.
About the results of logistic regressions, relational resources related with the participations in both countries. Hypothesis of relational resource is supported. There are some other variables related with participations. Authoritarian attitude, political efficacy, and preference of redistribution policy have effects to participations. The mechanisms of participations are different between residential areas in Korea and Japan.
