Abstract: The construction of social theory is accomplished by people who are embedded in concrete, but complex webs of social, political, and economic relationships. Its roots appear especially problematic when we consider the gender, economic, geographic, and political backgrounds of the “fathers” of modern social theory. Ontologically and epistemologically, early sociologists tended to “reproduce the imperial gaze” by which empires operated, reproducing and reifying stereotypes and systems of power relations within and between social groups. Pierre Bourdieu’s approach to relational sociology has been heralded as a way to obliterate the antimonies and dichotomies that ontologically and epistemologically reproduce power relations through what he would call symbolic violence. In this paper, I seek to explore the classical theoretical roots of Pierre Bourdieu’s thinking, how those theoretical foundations came to inform his ontology of the social and his epistemological approach to social science, and finally I will assess Bourdieu’s potential to give us a “way out” of the colonial-epistemological bind.

Abstract: Peer delinquency is nearly always operationalized with an individual’s perceptions of his/her peers’ behavior rather than the peers’ actual offending. Because of this form of measurement, one’s perception of their peers’ delinquency may be different than their peer’s actual delinquency. Using data from a large sample of young adult friendship pairs in emerging adulthood, we employ self-reported and perceptual measures of delinquency to determine how individuals use their own delinquency to cognitively develop a perception of a peer’s delinquency and how other personal characteristics (e.g., self-control) may affect these perceptions. Using comparison tests, we identify which dyadic gender structure provides the most accurate perceptual peer delinquency measure. Results suggest that perceptions contain many elements and vary greatly across friendship gender structure, raising questions regarding the validity of the most common operationalization of the peer delinquency construct.

Abstract: Self-managing teams have become an important strategy for organizing work in many of America’s workplaces. From the perspective of employers, self-managing teams equals increased productivity. For some work organization scholars, teams allow for increased worker autonomy and present low-status workers – generally women and minorities – the opportunity to connect to and interact with more influential employees from whom they might have otherwise being cutoff. This research applies network theory to employees of an investments firm to test the proteams argument. Results show that women who worked only in workgroups, the workplace structure that did not utilize cross-functional teams, were significantly more likely to perform different functions from men and to have more same-sex ties than men. However, there was no significant difference in ties or functions between women and men in the cross-functional, self-managing teams. Team participation did determine the overall informal structure. Both male and female team participants belonged to more centralized informal networks than men and women who only worked in workgroups. However, both men and women in teams had more same-gender ties.

Abstract: Springer and Hauser (2006) conducted confirmatory factor analyses on nationally representative data from three large surveys (MIDUS, NSFH II, and WLS) and discovered high correlations among four of the six Ryff’s Scales of Psychological Well-Being (SPWB) dimensions (personal growth, purpose in life, self-acceptance, and environmental mastery). Their findings questioned the discriminant validity of the SPWB and raised a serious concern about interpreting scores from these subscales. Using Bayesian Structural Equation Modeling (BSEM) approach, our paper aims to resolve the existing debate about the factorial structure of SPWB by analyzing the data derived from MIDUS wave one survey, which was also analyzed in Springer and Hauser’s study. The result showed that (a) the discriminate validity of Ryff’s SPWB was reasonable and a six-factor model was confirmed; (b) unfortunately, the factor loadings of few items were relatively small, which suggested the convergent validity of SPWB was not satisfied.
