Abstract: Abstract
The social construction of certain areas in medicine has enabled physicians to affect many individuals, which in the past, would not interact with the medical profession. In the area of mental health, increasing medical technology has enabled identification of Alzheimer’s disease. Unfortunately, this diagnosis has to be made post-mortem. To compensate, the medical profession applies the label of “dementia” to address “abnormal” cognitive decline. How individuals adjust to the label of dementia and the effects of social structure in the adjustment process is missing in the sociological literature. In order to understand the illness experience and its effects on society a mixed methods approach is necessary. How the dementia experience affects individuals must be determined from the individuals themselves. When people are encouraged to report their feelings about instances in their lives, valuable information can be collected and analyzed. The illness experience of dementia needs to be added to the sociological agenda. Establishing social patterns within the dementia experience can compliment the existing caregiver literature to provide a comprehensive view of dementia’s effects on society. This paper will show how application of the stress paradigm is a valuable tool to study this phenomenon.

"I Feel, Therefore I Know: White Resistance and the Phenomenology of Ignorance" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting, Pennsylvania Convention Center & Philadelphia Marriott, Philadelphia, PA, <Not Available>. 2019-09-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1343950_index.html>

Abstract: Prevailing commonsense assumes a mutually exclusive dichotomy divides reason from emotion. And yet, social actors think, not outside of emotion, but rather through it. Critical race scholars are thus increasingly attuned to the ways emotions participate in reproducing the symbolic dimensions of white supremacy; those driven by ideology, cognition, discourse, and – as I argue here – phenomenology (how social actors experience the world). Drawing on qualitative data, I argue that there is a phenomenological, specifically emotional dimension that shapes the ways white actors maintain everyday white logics and specifically, racial ignorance to carry out the work of racial reproduction. Beyond recognizing whites’ commitment to an epistemology of ignorance as central to white supremacy maintenance, I argue we must understand whites’ reasoning and practice as shaped by a phenomenology of ignorance as well. The phenomenology of ignorance captures the often visceral, emotion-laden, and morally-compromised dimensions of “thinking racially,” attending not just to commonplace implicit biases, but also whites’ hyper-empathic in-group feeling and action, and hypo-empathic responses to “racial others.” Moreover, a phenomenology of ignorance captures ways in which whites experience racialized feelings in the face of challenge, but also marshal “white feelings” to carry out the work of racial reproduction (i.e., to “do racism” in everyday life).

Systematic Cognitive Processing and Vote Quality" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Southern Political Science Association, Hotel InterContinental, New Orleans, LA, Jan 03, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-09-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p143222_index.html>

Abstract: This paper uses a CAII survey experiment with nationally representative data to examine the degree to which thinking systematically about various choice criteria improves vote quality, defined as the correspondence between voter value priorities and candidate preference, or whether the induced "analysis paralysis" from such an exercise overwhelms the choice process. Conducted during the 2004 campaign season, these data provide support for both propositions -- particularly among sophisticated voters.

Abstract: This project presents a piece of qualitative research in a form of an autoethnography that investigated the process of teacher identity development. It arrives at successful professional teacher identity construction through the complex paths ranging from pre-service teacher’s imagined identity and in-service negotiated identity to the final discovery of the actual practiced identity of a non-native teacher of English. The process of professional identity development is narrated and intertwines with multiple identities, which unveiled as a result of a self-reflective examination of the multidimensional journey of myself, the researcher and the participant. The data in this study come from my personal journals, professional website, longitudinally collected notes and my book being written. Findings contribute to theoretical concepts of teacher identity in general as well as deriving implications for teaching English. The theoretical framework stems from the idea of a ‘story as theory’ and is deeply ingrained in findings.

Abstract: Content analyses have examined the frequency and context of romantic conflicts on television. Drawing on this work, this paper explores the relations between television viewing and emerging adults’ use of control in romantic relationships. Findings showed small, marginally significant associations between relational control and (a) viewing television featuring interpersonal conflict and (b) reality television viewing. Soap opera viewing was significantly related to relational control. These relations were moderated by participants’ perceived realism of television content.
