Abstract: This paper presents a test of elements of Power Transition Theory (PTT) through an examination of types of demographic transitions against civil war. It divides population transitions into nine types and, from PTT logic, derives testable hypotheses. It also tests elements of PTT's rival, Balance of Power Theory (BPT). Although the logic of PTT seems appropriate to testing at the substate level, the results are mixed. Most states plagued by ethnic civil wars have stable populations (i.e. no transitions), yet three types of transitions stand out. Even here, however, PTT predicts violence in only one of these three types of transitions. BPT fares a bit better.

Abstract: Population migration can have dramatic health effects (e.g., the Spanish introduction of smallpox to New World inhabitants). Health effects can also be subtle, especially given the long latency of diseases such as cancers. Separately, places in the U.S. may be ranked as persistently healthy and unhealthy places, based on a variety of health measures. As such, we investigate how socioeconomic factors and population migration relate to the relative health of these counties. Assessment of the stable population is necessary to correctly determine the “at-risk” population for either the incidence or prevalence of morbidity/mortality within a population. Further, understanding population migration flows can reveal the role that place versus the population or community play in morbidity and mortality outcomes. Using mortality as a health outcome and socioeconomic factors as controls, we test the importance of county-level population stability and in-migration. Population in-migration is negatively associated with mortality rates except in already unhealthy places, while population stability (non-movers) is positively associated with mortality rates no matter how counties are grouped. This finding supports previous research from other countries, indicating that healthy people move from unhealthy places while unhealthy people remain in unhealthy places. This is also supportive of parallel research in the migration patterns of the poor, in which migration is found to maintain and reinforce spatial concentrations of poverty. We conclude that migration and stability reinforce the health status of county populations and plan to examine in more detail the migration patterns among healthy and unhealthy places in future research.

Abstract: Globalization is not just an economic phenomenon, as flows of capital goods and services cannot take place without parallel flows of ideas, cultural values and people. In thinking globally, one needs to take into account the economic, educational, and social transformations taking place in our diverse society due to globalization. This report will first briefly define the terminology of nation-state versus globalization; next, this report will discuss the changing population dynamics in Texas; then, a brief explanation of economic flows will be introduced universally as well as particularly; and; finally, this report will present some of the implications for Texas education using a nation-state ideological mechanism versus a globalization system of ideology.
Hobsbawm, (1975); and Massey & Pren (2012) posit that migration is clearly a systematic element in the processes of globalization, but this is merely a new form of a systematic element that has existed in various guises ever since the beginnings of the global market place, around the sixteenth century. Thus, understanding the key role of population mobility and its effects are important for assessing future perspectives in globalization.
To what extent will migrant settlement, education, employment, and community formation change under conditions of globalization in Texas? What will be the effects on social relations, culture identity and politics and education in Texas? How will Texas seek to incorporate minorities and manage diversity within an ever-changing population while also incorporating a globalization perspective in education, economics and politics?

Abstract: In this paper I argue that at present the retreat of liberal states from supporting their own democratic credentials leaves forms of left populism the only agency (and political ideology) to uphold the principle of political equality both as expansion of political efficacy of citizens and as the defense of the principle of equal citizenship as the justification for social provision in the midst of a society of increasingly heterogeneous divisions. But the question this leaves us with is what kind of (left) populism is defensible and what kind is not? In answering this question, I want provide an account that steers between the abstract logic of populism of Ernesto Laclau and the primordial notion of pre-institutional equality of Jacques Rancière.

Most populist movements at present—including ones on the right—are directed against political elites and mainstream political parties that have lost touch with the citizens, I would thus argue that a left version of populism is only defensible if it presses this vocabulary in a number of directions that expand the meaning of citizenship rather than contract it. First it must seek to offer an “effectual” as well as rights-based notion of political equality to the heterogeneous groups that now constitute civil society under an inclusive concept of citizenship—one located between pure national and pure cosmopolitan citizenship. Second, I argue that left populism will typically have to employ a traditional (Rousseauist) vocabulary of the political divide between rulers who have usurped a claim to sovereign authority and citizens who claim to exercise political influence over common decisions--increasing the tension between popular sovereignty and representation without claiming to abolish it; more significantly, it must articulate a sense of indignation at a social contract or relation of trust that has been broken. Here I disagree with Ernesto Laclau’s more abstract claim that the logic of populism consists of a “popular subject” defined by the conflict between “two social camps” with a constantly changing “frontier” between them, defined by a set of equivalent but different local demands. Against this, I argue that despite its various forms, there is a consistent political vocabulary of (left) populism. Third, left populism will have to redirect the vocabulary of citizens versus political elites to win over those who would be tempted by a right wing populism of exclusion, nationalism, and defense of individual property by demanding the older notion that political equality must expand into social equality and economic provision against the rule of market price—a populism of the left to counter a populism of the right. And toward this end, this argument must personify the opponent rather than merely focus on structure. Finally, although attacking present-day representative institutions, a left populism cannot sustain its entry into the political vacuum of post-democracy if, as some have recently argued, it only upholds a “fugitive” or primordial equality outside of institutional politics (for example, Rancière). As a matter of political realism it has to be attached to both protesting citizens and to political parties precisely because it criticizes the unrepresentative nature of political parties as they already exist and often seeks to break the power of political cartels.

While liberal critics of populism claim that this form of politics is dangerous because of the openness of its concepts and the ease with which they can be deployed toward resentment politics, I argue that these same critics face the difficulty that to defend liberalism against a right-wing populism requires tying the liberal state to aspects of democracy and political equality from which it in fact has steadily retreated in favor of market imperatives. In short, these critics are forced to defend an ideal political theory version of the liberal state whose egalitarianism is at odds with liberal political practice.

Abstract: The population ecology theory of interest organizations has moved the subfield of interest groups beyond studies of why individuals join interest groups to a larger understanding of how interest groups interact within government systems in the production of representation. To an extent, interest group studies from an ecological perspective have pursued esoteric outcomes somewhat far removed from democratic practice. In this paper, we seek to examine how the population ecology of organized interests in a state impacts the level of grassroots mobilization into politics. More specifically, we examine how the population density of Christian Right lobbying groups affects the degree of grassroots lobbying that Christian Right supporters conduct in each state. We connect 2006 lobbyist registration data collected from all 50 states and individual-level survey data concerning state-level political activity by Christian Right supporters to test a model of grassroots mobilization to help identify the degree of context dependence of grassroots activism.
