Abstract: Recent work in immigrant political incorporation in the social sciences has examined level of civic participation and partisanship among new immigrants. However, little attention has been focused upon another step in the political incorporation of immigrants historically, differentiation from Blacks as expressed in negative racial attitudes towards Blacks. Do new immigrants express negative racial attitudes towards Blacks similar to those expressed by earlier White ethnic immigrant groups, and if so, what accounts for these attitudes? Using the 1992-1994 Multi City Survey of Urban Inequality, this paper examines the content of immigrant racial attitudes towards Blacks and test the utility of existing theoretical explanations of negative racial attitudes that include: context, contact, and perceptions of group conflict. These models have been used primarily to account for the attitudes of Whites toward Blacks, and although potentially important to accounting for the attitudes of new immigrants, I argue that these models do not incorporate germane variables important to understanding immigrant racial attitudes. Thus, the paper also tests the utility of assimilation theory that incorporates salient independent variables such as: ethnicity, English proficiency, level of civic participation, length of residence, and skin color which all could account for the racial attitudes of new immigrant groups.

Abstract: A growing population of women who identify as plus-sized are using the multimedia blogging site Tumblr as a venue for creating community and sharing resources and experiences. Through posting personal photos, participants use Tumblr to address the lack of size representation in the fashion industry. This project examines how bloggers negotiate racial, gendered and sexual identities, as well as how their participation both supports and defies a neoliberal economy that is often exploits women on an international scale. By examining five “fatshion” blogs, this project offers a nuanced examination of one branch of the online “Fatosphere” of fat acceptance activists.

Abstract: Under the ASEAN regional cooperation framework, "higher education" plays a key role in improving its member countries' global competitiveness and promoting ASEAN awareness and identity. Recent data showed that the trend of student mobility in ASEAN region is from one-way importing from Western countries to multilayered movements within the region. Taiwanese higher education is now facing a highly competitive market under the pressure of regional cooperation framework among ASEAN plus Three countries. The urgent call for Taiwanese higher education is to find itsstrengths and take an active position to attract more students from the region. Thus, this research aims to unearth the strengths and opportunities of Taiwanese higher education through studying this issue at the regional, the state, institutional, and individual levels. Firstly, the research willreview and analyze the regional official documents and agreements among ASEAN plus Three member countries to draw a picture of the reality and directions of students' mobility in the region. Secondly, the research will analyze and compare the documents regarding student recruitment strategies adopted by the five main importing countries in the region including Mainland China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Malaysia. Thirdly, the research will examine the recent policies and strategies adopted by Taiwanese government and higher education institutions concerning recruitment of foreign students in the region. Finally, this research will conduct one-on-one interviews and questionnaire survey to understand ASEAN students' motivations of choosing to study abroad and their educational experiences in Taiwan. From students' point of view, this research expects to locate Taiwanese higher education's strengths and positions in the regional market and to provide practical suggestions for advancing Taiwan's capacity for international student recruitment.
