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>. 2019-06-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p183505_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
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.

3. Spector, Alan. "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>. 2019-06-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p34054_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
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.

How Self-Distancing and Perspective-Taking Influence First- and Third-Person Perceptions" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association 65th Annual Conference, Caribe Hilton, San Juan, Puerto Rico, May 21, 2015 Online <APPLICATION/SOFTGRID-PDF>. 2019-06-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p984800_index.html>

Abstract: Third- and first-person perceptions (TPPs/FPPs) are considered as biased judgments. We test whether self-distancing, i.e. adapting to a distanced position towards the self, and perspective-taking, i.e. thinking from another person’s point-of-view, decrease this bias. We apply this notion to the formation of TPPs and FPPs. In Study 1 (n = 790), we measure self-distancing and perspective-taking tendencies and find no support for a relationship with TPPs or FPPs. However, in Study 2 (n = 693) we manipulate both changes in perspective. We find no effects for a desirable media message, and, thus, on FPPs. For an undesirable stimulus, both self-distancing and perspective-taking boost perceived media influence on self. However, contrary to perspective-taking self-distancing also increases perceived influence on others. Thus, only perspective-taking absolutely reduces the bias in TPP compared to a control group. We discuss the mixed findings and their implications for the cognitive and motivational explanation of TPPs.
