Abstract: Joseph Beam’s In the Life: A Black Gay Anthology and Brother to Brother: New Writings by Black Gay Men, edited by Essex Hemphill and conceived by Joseph Beam, are seminal texts in Black Queer Studies. The writers in the above anthologies continue the efforts for inclusion of earlier black gay or bisexual men writers such as Alain Locke, Claude McKay, Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, Richard Bruce Nugent, Wallace Thurman, James Baldwin, and others. These earlier writers muted their stories of love of other men and instead fore-grounded the most pressing issues of racial oppression needing addressed. Writers in the Beam and Hemphill anthologies are no less committed to racial solidarity and addressing the various institutional oppressions that deny black people opportunities for equal opportunity and cultural authenticity, but these writers also are committed to telling their stories of being gay men in an America that despises and dismisses them and often a black community and a white gay community that despises and dismisses them as well. While the honesty of the stories, poems, and essays in the collections frame the narratives of these brave men who dare to love each other, their voices are equally committed to the struggles impacting and hurting all African Americans. It is this insistence on telling their own stories and demonstrating how their stories are a part of larger black communities and their struggles with racism, discrimination, and denial of equal opportunity that these works demonstrate their importance to an Afrocentric Black Queer Studies paradigm.

Abstract: After the decision to retire the US shuttle fleet in 2011, the US was left dependent upon Russia for human spaceflight. The current tensions with Russia over Crimea and Ukraine, and the Russian decision to halt manned flight cooperation, have placed the US in a strategic disadvantage in space power. This paper examines both the short-term and medium-term implications of the lack of a manned program in US space policy. The paper also examines the domestic and foreign policy challenges that will affect the US return of human spaceflight as well as situation of the rise of developing space powers (India, China, Brazil) that will complicate efforts to reinvigorate the US space program.

Abstract: This paper identifies the inconsistency between the discourse of transatlantic security community and the practice of transatlantic space politics, and argues that the trend of global governance did not cause power shift from states to supranational or non-state actors in transatlantic space politics. Space is a highly security-sensitive policy domain, in which we expect Europe and the U.S. to cooperate mutual-trustfully in order to achieve common security objectives of the transatlantic security community. However, the essence of transatlantic space politics, clearly displayed by the documents and practice of Europe and the U.S., is pragmatic and flexible balance of strategic self-interests according to their respective cost-effective calculation. The constitution-like character of the transatlantic security community does not make their competition over material power unnecessary. Political autonomy and seizing pivotal positions are primary concerns of Europe and the U.S. in transatlantic space politics due to the absence of an overarching central authority. The governance for transatlantic space politics remains state-dominated and geopolitically demarcated.

Abstract: The study of street gangs holds special significance for the new urban sociology: Much of the daily activity of street gangs is oriented around claims to and defense of social space, and these actions in turn redefine the formal space of urban neighborhoods. Sociologists have recognized the relationship between gangs and urban space for many years, yet the ways in which street gangs impose new meanings upon social space has not been a systematic area of study.

In this paper, I want to explore three areas where street gangs have become an active force transforming urban space. These include (a) claims to urban space—gang territory—through graffiti and other actions which redefine social space and reorient behavior and social interation within and across urban neighborhoods; (b) the impact of gang activity on real estate markets and the more general process of neighborhood succession; and (c) the emergence of street gangs in cyberspace. This paper contributes to a small but important body of literature about the interplay of space and social interaction. As Lefebvre contends, the space in which individuals constitute their everyday lives is socially constructed, resulting from the interplay of the formal space (the built environment) and the intentional activities of social groups, including street gangs, that often contest the accepted or official uses and meanings attached to formal space.
