2. Earl, Jennifer.

Abstract: This paper examines the impact of protest-related arrests on future willingness to engage in protest based on data drawn from qualitative interviews with 27 randomly selected protesters who were arrested during the 2004 RNC. The paper begins by discussing the length and detention conditions for arrestees, which situates the reactions of arrestees to their confinement experiences. The paper then examines interview data, identifying and explaining trends that exist between the likelihood of future protest participation, and: (1) whether the participant intended/expected to be arrested or not; (2) severity of arrest and confinement experience; (3) case disposition (found guilty, case dismissed, adjournment in contemplation of dismissal, etc.); (4) prior arrest experiences; and (5) prior protest participation. Findings show that surprisingly, not all of these factors shaped willingness to protest in the future, but some markedly affect stated intentions. Finally, theoretical implications are discussed and findings are situated in terms of their generalizability for all RNC arrestees and other protest arrestees using quantitative data on all 2004 RNC arrestees.

Abstract: A lot of wishful thinking has been deployed in support of “participatory” methods supposed to open ways for ownership by community members in development projects. Yet the diagnosis of the situation, the proposed solutions and the way to implement them are more often than not imposed by a technostructure alien to the community whose discourse has no relation to people’s perceptions. Sense-Making Methodology may help members of a community articulate their views, provided it is fine-tuned to its particular cultural and communication patterns.

Abstract: This paper presents an abbreviated case study of the impact of religious participation on the political participation of black Americans who live outside metropolitan areas in the South by making use of a survey administered to congregants at historically black churches in Commerce, Texas. The paper begins with a brief foray into the lack of research concerning black Americans outside the metropolitan areas and the North. It discusses the role that the black church has played, both in the past and today, in the daily lives of the nation’s black residents. It then discusses religious participation and political participation, and explains the development of the customized survey administered to participants. After a focus on the seven black churches that were surveyed, and a brief description of the historically segregated community in which they are located, the paper discusses the survey results, along with their implication in the wider body of scholarship. This forms a part of a thesis for a degree that will be obtained in May 2014.

Abstract: In recent years there has been a push to increase undergraduate exposure to research. However, this new emphasis highlights a potential disparity for students who study at research versus non-research focused institutions. Given the institutional divide between research and non-research institutions (Stein 1977; Twombly & Townsend 2008; Weeber 2006), instructors at teaching schools and community colleges are not often able to expose their students to first-hand research experiences through the traditional means of research assistantships or introductions to faculty research. In this paper, using the Research Experience Program as a case study, we introduce a new pedagogical tool which allows instructors teaching sociology courses in institutions that traditionally do not have deeply developed research programs to expose their students to the research process first-hand. Our case study highlights the possibility that participant pool participation can successfully be incorporated into curriculum even in large lecture and online classes with a minimum of burden to course instructors. It also highlights the possibility of engaging in win-win inter-institutional collaborations between research and teaching institutions to create experiences that can benefit students who might have been formerly barred from these experiences by institutionalized academic barriers. Using 6 years of student feedback data on the Research Experience Program, we evaluate the success of this alternative method of exposing community college students to social science research first-hand.
