2007 - Rural Sociological Society Words: 117 words || 
1. Dillman, Don. "Conducting Quality Surveys in the 21st Century: A summary of Current Problems and Likely Solutions" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Rural Sociological Society, Marriott Santa Clara, Santa Clara, California, Aug 02, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-09-22 <>
Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: For nearly a century rural sociologists have depended upon sample surveys to understand the opinions and behaviors of rural people. A myriad of changes in how quality samples can be obtained, the effectiveness of various survey modes (telephone, mail and web) in reaching people, and changes in relative costs, are dramatically reshaping the survey landscape. In this paper I will overview the nature of these changes, and their implications for conducting quality sample surveys in the 21st century. Results from a series of experiments involving mail, web and telephone surveys conducted by the author between 2002 and 2007 will be summarized as a basis for predicting future directions in designing and conducting high quality sample surveys.

2. Hager, Sandy. "Military Spending, Capital Accumulation and 'Euro-Imperialism': A Summary of Preliminary Empirical Research" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ISA's 49th ANNUAL CONVENTION, BRIDGING MULTIPLE DIVIDES, Hilton San Francisco, SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, Mar 26, 2008 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-09-22 <>

Abstract: This paper presents a summary of preliminary empirical findings from a research project on the political economy of military spending in the European Union. An analysis of the differential and transnational facets of the capital accumulation process challenges the notion of an EU military-industrial complex, revealing a relative subordination the arms firms to other dominant capital groups in the UK and France, and a decreasing reliance for sales and profits on ‘domestic’ military spending.

3. Peacock, Anthony. "A Summary of Deconstructing the Republic: Voting Rights, the Supreme Court, and the Founders’ Republicanism Reconsidered" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the APSA 2008 Annual Meeting, Hynes Convention Center, Boston, Massachusetts, Aug 28, 2008 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-09-22 <>

Based on Hayek’s idea of “constructivist rationalism,” which Hayek used to critique the planned economy: that the political branches did not have the knowledge necessary to regulate social and economic life.

What Hayek said about the political branches of government is equally true of the judicial branch. What distinguished Supreme Court jurisprudence through the last half of the twentieth century as much as anything was its assumption that it could rationally reconstruct American republicanism from the top down in accordance with a preconceived vision of “fairness”–began with reapportionment cases of 1960s.


I define the politics of multiculturalism as a vision of America that considers race and ethnicity not merely as sources of identity and of mutual interest but as legally determinative categories that afford legitimate foundations for claims to representation and political rule.

4. Hannes, Karin. "The (im)possibility of reporting guidelines for qualitative research: a summary of findings from an argument Delphi study." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Tenth Annual Congress of Qualitative Inquiry, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois, May 21, 2014 <Not Available>. 2019-09-22 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: Reporting guidelines (RGs) for quantitative research designs have successfully been disseminated. RGs for qualitative research have not known a substantial uptake. The variety of different paradigms that steer qualitative research and the broad range of designs, techniques and approaches one could opt for may complicate the consolidation process of such RGs. We explored the possibility of a consolidated standard of RGs for qualitative research exploring the arguments that would plead for or against the development and use of RGs for qualitative research and what needs to be considered in the future development of these RGs. A multidisciplinary research team approached 30 experts in qualitative research. Eighteen agreed to participate in a two-round argument Delphi study, discussing the applicability, potential effectiveness, value and form of RGs for qualitative research. We present a line of argument that can be developed from the type of statements that were supported by the experts.

2013 - Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies 45th Annual Convention Words: 90 words || 
5. Bruttmann, Tal. "Summary Executions of Jews in France: French Ultra Collaborators as Perpetrators" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies 45th Annual Convention, Boston Marriott Copley Place, Boston, MA, <Not Available>. 2019-09-22 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This paper deals with executions of Jews by local pro-Nazi vigilantes in southern France in 1944, shortly before this country's liberation by the Allies. It argues that such cases were more numerous than people usually realize and that, as a rule, they were under-investigated. The paper makes the case that the phenomenon of popular deadly anti-Semitic violence existed not only in the east but also in the west of Europe and calls into question some of the assumptions about the role of local initiative in the unfolding of Shoah.
