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 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: Quality assurance is at the forefront of higher education policy in Russia. The advancement of internal quality assessment in its accreditation system intensified in the 2000s (Кашлачева [Kashlacheva], 2006). Educational institutions started being evaluated on the development of the internal quality assurance systems. A self-study as a mandatory part of accreditation is meant to contribute to the development of the internal quality assurance system at the educational institution. The fact that Russian quality assurance system has a strong legacy of external control (Smolentseva, 2003) and the position of a self-study being internally oriented but externally mandated allows me to embed the research problem in the accountability versus improvement discourse.

External accountability and internal improvement are often discussed as two contrary agendas in a quality assurance establishment (Danø & Stensaker, 2007). The improvement rationales of a self-study are usually favored, but it is acknowledged that in real life accountability takes over in many countries. (Kells, 1995; Van Kemenade & Hardjono, 2010). The question driving this research is whether the self- study as a part of higher education accreditation in Russia is a critical self-evaluation tool internally oriented at the improvement of the education process, or a formal self-reporting practice to account for the education process to the external agency. I will present the results of the qualitative research that utilized document content analysis to explore the macro-level policies of the quality assurance in Russian higher education and the case study method to examine the self-study processes at two higher education institutions in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Abstract: The idea that African Americans are forced into double realities within a single body that is split into two souls has influenced me to question whether or not it is possible that those of African descent can overcome what Du Bois understood as the outcomes and ramifications of a world that yields one no true self-consciousness. Du Bois once defined the meaning of being African American in a space that continues to be overtly and covertly anti-African/Black in its treatment of those of color. Through his psychological and philosophical analysis of the Negro’s “gift” of second sight, Du Bois sets the foundation for what African Americans have come to understand as the psychological consequences of being African American. However, where Du Bois saw a gift in double-consciousness or second sight, I see it as a threat to the existence of the African American self and to our understanding of self.

The overall purpose of this paper, therefore, is to examine through an existential lens how the “gift” of double-consciousness or second sight traps African Americans in a cycle of forced invisibility. Moreover, the paper will explore how this cycle causes the self to fall into despair, and the ways in which specific environments duplicate and perpetuate this despair, prohibiting African Americans ways in which to stop or exit the cycle. In the process of re-examining Du Bois’ theory of double-consciousness, I construct my own epistemology to explore the processes in which the African American self must engage to overcome another’s negatively or adversely constructed belief and/or concept of that self, in which I call the self as nonexistent, I have found Soren Kierkegaard’s philosophy of the self in despair to be very compelling, but also questionable in contrast to the African American lived experience. Therefore, this paper will also analyze and compare Kierkegaard’s philosophy of the self existing in despair to Du Bois’ philosophy of double-consciousness as a way of understanding how the African American self exist in despair, along with my theory of how the African American self exist as a nonexistent while it tries to overcome what senses to be despair that surrounds the self.
