1. Hyun, Maria. "The Founding of Environmental Movement Organizations in Korea: Resource Mobilization Perspective and Institutional Perspective" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, TBA, New York, New York City, Aug 11, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2019-02-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p183505_index.html>

Abstract: In this paper, I examine what factors affect the foundings of environmental movement organizations (EMO’s) in Korea. As civil society grows up and social movements become more institutionalized, social movement organizations play more crucial roles in Korea. Environmental movements in Korea have also been institutionalized over the past 40 years. Since the first EMO, the Korean Association for Conservation of Nature was founded in 1963, the number of EMOs has increased exponentially. Between 20 and 30 EMOs has been founded every year since the 1990s. The foci of the environmental movements have become more specific as the field has developed. However, the strategies and tactics of the movements have been fairly general and unchanging over time. I employ resource mobilization theory and institutional theory to test the founding dynamics of the EMO considering various factors including political opportunities, resource availability, the expansion of environmental discourse, and participation in environmental activities in world society.

Abstract: In this study, a Web 2.0 tool called VoiceThread was applied into a cross-cultural collaboration project between the college students from the United States and Taiwan. By analyzing Taiwanese students’ reflection essays and the questionnaire regarding the overall learning experience, the study intends to identify important elements of designing and developing cross-cultural online learning environment, and also suggests how to better use VoiceThread in cross-cultural projects for teaching and learning purpose.

3. Buffone, Anneke. "Perspective Taking and the Biopsychosocial Model of Challenge & Threat: Effects of Imagine-Self and Imagine-Other Perspective Taking on Helping" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ARNOVA’s 44th Annual Conference, Palmer House Hotel, Chicago, Illinois, <Not Available>. 2019-02-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1034420_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Prior research revealed conflicting evidence showing that helping can have positive or negative health consequences for helpers (Poulin et al., 2010; Russo et al., 1995). This research investigated whether helpers may experience detrimental versus beneficial health effects depending on differences in mindset. Sampling 212 participants we found that imagine-self perspective taking (thinking how you would feel in a target’s situation) invokes cardiovascular threat (see Seery, 2013), a debilitating state of stress, while imagine-other (thinking about how the target feels) perspective taking (Batson, Early, & Salvarani, 1997) leads to cardiovascular challenge, a state of positive arousal when helping someone in need.

Abstract: Global Perspectives is a 100 level interdisciplinary general education course required of students at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. The course content includes international relations, international economics and human geography. The majority of students come to the class suspicious of the material and expressing a general disdain for the subject matter. This paper explores three techniques utilized by the author to better engage students in material they find quite “foreign”. The three techniques analyzed are personalized lectures, collaborative lectures and perspective simulations. Personalized lectures involve the integration of student responses to an anonymous survey into lecture material presented throughout the semester. Collaborative lectures require students to research and present information relevant to the topic at various points in a day’s lecture. The instructor is responsible for assigning the material and then integrating student research into the lecture at the appropriate times. Finally, perspective simulations ask students to place themselves into virtual realities where they are required to make decisions, often life and death decisions, and then analyze their decision-making process and reflect on the choices they have made. The analysis in this paper will illustrate how each of these three techniques increases student engagement and fosters the development of a global perspective.

"Evolution of Fascism: Class Perspectives versus Psychological Perspectives" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Marriott Hotel, Loews Philadelphia Hotel, Philadelphia, PA, Aug 12, 2005 Online <PDF>. 2019-02-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p34054_index.html>

Abstract: The term "fascism" is sometimes used so broadly as to be reduced to any sort of oppression that annoys anyone. Sometimes it is used with such specificity as to limit it to just a few supposedly unique cases in history. Both extremes limit its usefulness as a concept that can help understand why and how various modern societies develop certain "fascistic" characteristics. In contrast to perspectives that emphasize either individual psychological or mass cultural aspects, an analysis that emphasizes the underlying class processes provides a more useful definition while still being able to take into account those important cultural, ideological, and psychological aspects.
