1. Trosky, Abram. "Of the People, by the People, and for other Peoples? Moral violence and the state in the political philosophy of Howard Zinn" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Northeastern Political Science Association, Omni Parker House, Boston, MA, Nov 15, 2012 <Not Available>. 2018-11-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p603312_index.html>

Abstract: Melding libertarian, communitarian, and cosmopolitan sentiments, Howard Zinn’s political philosophy tempers profound skepticism of governmental power with the sustaining hope that popular movements and the action of individual conscience will increase human freedom globally. The rare historian who disavowed objectivity in historical research and writing, he embraced the “bias” of humanism in both the selection and depiction of his subjects.
Zinn’s philosophy of historical change amalgamating Marxist, democratic socialist, and anarchist thought leaves questions regarding these principles’ appropriate application. As an activist, Zinn was adamant that we, the people, should do something. But because his prescriptivism comes primarily in the form of critique and resistance, it is difficult to give a Zinnian answer the basic political philosophic question, “What is to be done?”—How to positively build peace with the state in constant opposition?
This ambivalence is especially evident in the realm of international relations. Zinn was ardently anti-war but disavowed the pacifism and passivity of the political left, without saying much publically about the territory between. As observed in the Occupy and Arab social movements, Zinn remains an icon of both reformists who espouse nonviolent direct action, and revolutionaries who advocate meeting unjust force with force. My contention in this paper is that Zinn’s patchwork allegiances suggest a more nuanced understanding of the morality of violence and the mechanisms of historical change than regularly appreciated.

2. Kamo, Tomoki. "The People’s Liberation Army in the Local People’s Congresses: What do the Delegates of the Local People’s Congresses Represent?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AAS-in-Asia, Kyoto, Doshisha University, Kyoto, Japan, <Not Available>. 2018-11-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1099781_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The main purpose of this research is to expose political functions of the delegates to the local people’s congresses in China. It focuses on the local people’s congress delegates selected from the circles of the People’s Liberations Army (PLA).
Earlier research on the delegates of the Chinese local people’s congresses focuses on this function of information gathering and reveals the delegates’ functions as agents, remonstrators, or representatives.
Using the data from the Jiangsu Province Yangzhou City People’s Congress from 1998 to 2015, this research examines how the information gathering function of the local people’s congresses has changed over the last decade or so. In particular, analyzing the contents of the bills submitted to the people’s congress by the delegates selected from the PLA circles, this research depicts how the PLA has gradually started expressing its demands through the people’s congresses over the last decade.
At the end of the 1990s, the PLA never submitted bills to the local peoples congresses. In regards to this reason, an individual familiar with the local people’s congresses responded that “even if the PLA had any demands it did not submit bills since it was able to solve these issues within its own system.” However, in the recent years, the PLA has been submitting its requests to the people’s congresses in the form of bills. This research explores the political meaning of the change in the relationship between the local people’s congresses and the PLA.

Abstract: Through content analysis of their coverage on a large-scale media event, this paper examines the difference of agendas set by traditional media (represented by newspapers) and new media (represented by micro-blogs) in China. The results show that the agendas discussed by the Chinese people on micro-blogs are not significantly influenced by newspapers. In terms of the topics of the news, newspapers are more concerned with the Chinese economy and people's livelihood while micro-blogs are more concerned with political and legal reforms in China. As for media tone, newspapers are more likely to cover the event positively while micro-blogs tend to be negative. These findings that the Chinese government may be incapable of exercising their traditionally strong media agenda influence over newer digital media suggest that Chinese citizens, or netizens, may enjoy more freedom of speech in micro-blogging.
