Abstract: Contributions of information that is exchanged and coaction in silence to innovation by decision-making teams are considered. Idea generation is recognized as critical in decisions that are ill structured. We give explicit form to conditions that are likely to maximize innovation and examine contentions of the account in experimental data.

Abstract: The emergence of terrorism as a dominant specter in the contemporary world has turned the eyes of many back to Thomas Hobbes. Indeed, the ability of terrorists to strike either by “secret machination or by confederacy with others” (Leviathan, 13.1) is the ultimate manifestation of Hobbesian equality. We are in this sense truly in his state of nature. Further, American efforts to thwart the terrorists can be described as an attempt to establish a Leviathan who can “overawe them all” (Leviathan, 13.5), thus bringing us out of a state of nature. Hobbes indeed has a great deal to say to both the terrorists and the American predicament.

Abstract: Despite having a clearly articulated program some candidates still lose; and despite expressing poorly organized ideas some candidates win the public’s approval. We use an original experiment to compare the impact of politicians’ nonverbal behavior and verbal arguments on their persuasiveness and electability. The experiment exposes participants to one of 4 webcasts showing a candidate delivering an environmental speech, using a 2 (Speech quality: poor vs. good) x 2 (Nonverbal delivery: confident vs. non-confident) between-subjects design. The speeches are delivered by the same male professional actor playing the candidate part, and the webcasts are shown in a controlled laboratory setting. We expect nonverbal candidate behavior to prime both attention to and acceptance of the speech. Candidate nonverbal confidence should increase both attention to the speech and agreement with the candidate, and the impact of confidence should be highest in the poor speech condition. We measure both the respondents’ physiological responses (blood level, cheek and brow movements) during the experiment, and their self-reported reactions to the speech and to the politician as measured in a post-test questionnaire.

Abstract: Feminist Film Theory and Comic Feminist Film Theory backdrop this study, which struggles through Asian, Asian American and American women’s perspectives regarding a globalized popular culture minority portrayal(s). Textual analysis and audience study reveal that stereotypes nor beauty nor behavior standards are transborder, dual pan-ethnicization occurs, women’s limited space within the male-constructed public sphere is reified, and Straubhaar’s (1991) cultural proximity notion is challenged; gender experienced through comedy trumps several societal demarcations.

Abstract: This presentation explores the impact of youth-centered participatory research designs in promoting social justice. I draw from my research encounters with a group of African and Afro-Caribbean refugee girls and young women, ages 12-22. Their very identities are embedded in complex and intersecting inequalities: as Muslims in a post-9/11 U.S., as refugees in the face of increasing debates over immigration and who belongs in the nation-state. Though the participants do not self-identity as black, they are cast as black in a country where blackness is foundational for race and racism. Throughout our research encounters, girls and young women explore strategies of engagement and resistance.
