Abstract: This qualitative study illustrates how international female students (IFs)—who are originally from the Third World/South but currently located in the First World/North—feel and understand feminist solidarities and local collaborations as a social minority (Mohanty, 2003). Data is collected from IFs using interviews and storytelling. The participants discuss and share their experiences and understandings about the battles within them for social justice, between the Third World/South self and First World/North self. The results include a description of the participants’ discussion of this issue and reveal a more visible and critical viewing power and inequity.

Abstract: Facebook users are encouraged to share personal information and to strengthen social ties with others via services embedded in the platforms, and such practices have raised important concerns about user privacy. However, not all social media users are equally vulnerable to privacy risks or are equally concerned about the exposure of personal information. This study proposes a study that investigates how self-related motivations for using social media lead to privacy management behaviors and whether this relationship is mediated by self-extension to one’s own Facebook profile. Derived from perspectives of communication privacy management and extended self, the study hypothesizes that the extended self in Facebook will significantly influence both privacy disclosure and control behaviors on Facebook. Also, the study predicts that self-related motives of using Facebook will have positive associations with self-extension to Facebook. Study method, expected results, and contributions of the study are also discussed.

Abstract: This research examines several interrelated areas of self-rated health and health outcomes. First, what factors affect self-ratings of health? Next, does the intergenerational transmission of factors affecting self-rated health status occur between parents and child; if so, does gender or other factors moderate the effects. Self-rated health has been used in numerous studies and has been found to be a strong predictor of morbidity and mortality. Positive self-ratings are associated with lower levels of morbidity, longer life-spans, lower levels of disability (Mossey and Shapiro 1982). These studies, however, often use cross-sectional data that surveys mid-life or elderly population. Few studies have used longitudinal data sets that capture the majority of the life course; even fewer have used data sets that include a second generation. Using a unique and valuable data set provided by Dr. Howard Kaplan, this study is able to examine self-rated health and self-perceptions association with health by allowing researchers to examine several points in an individual’s life and continue those questions into a second generation.
This study contributes to gaps in the literature by examining the intergenerational transmission of health status, risk behaviors, and perceptions of self that may influence health. Scant attention has been given to the relationship between the intergenerational transmission of health-related behaviors, lifestyles, and health perceptions and outcomes (Wickrama et al., 1999). Ahlburg (1998) notes that the intergenerational transmission of income, education, and social capital have long been of interest to social scientist, yet little focus has been given to the transmission of health knowledge. Because lifestyle and health-risk behaviors are directly linked to morbidity and mortality, it is important to study how lifestyles and self-perceptions of health are transmitted from one generation to the next.
The proposed research seeks to help explain these questions. Using Stata to analyze the data, multivariate analysis of Dr. Kaplan’s data set will be used to assess the relationship between dependent, independent, and control variables. Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) will also be used to test latent variables that may explain some of the variance in health outcomes.
