1. Funke, Friedrich. and Dunwoody, Philip. "Three times Three is One: Validating three multi-dimensional authoritarianism scales" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ISPP 33rd Annual Scientific Meeting, Mark Hopkins Hotel, San Francisco, California, USA, <Not Available>. 2019-08-22 <>
Publication Type: Paper (prepared oral presentation)
Abstract: From the very beginning of authoritarianism research there has been the accepted conception of authoritarianism as a multifaceted or multidimensional construct. The Berkeley Group (1950) named nine features of the Authoritarian Personality, Altemeyer (1981) focused on three. Traditional and widespread measures of authoritarianism are constructed uni-dimensionally. This mismatch between theory and methodology has been criticized by Funke (2002, 2005). Since then several multi-dimensional authoritarianism scales have been developed and tested. This paper compares new measures by Duckitt and Dunwoody and Funkes RWA³D (2005) on a theoretical and empirical level. Based on data collected in several countries the convergent, discriminant and differential criterion validity of the three scales is compared. The empirical experience with the three measures provide accumulative evidence that the psychometric distinction between sub-constructs is advantageous in order to better understand the association of RWA with related constructs (SDO, Big Five) as well as with several relevant criteria.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: My paper offers a representation of Cuban slavery using a hybrid genre that I call “Non-Fiction Short Stories” which combines the literary devices and aesthetic objectives of creative writing and rigorous research strategies and methodologies that historians commonly use.

The paper uses the life stories of three ordinary Cuban slaves or former slaves who lived through extraordinary experiences and whose documented lives shed important light onto larger discussions about slavery. First, Paula de Eguiluz, a former slave married to one of Cuba’s richest men. Her elegance and extensive wardrobe was the envy of the white elite. Accused of sorcery, she ended up in Cartagena, where the Inquisition sentenced her to wear penitential garb made out of sack cloth. Second, an unnamed African-born plantation worker, who was humiliated by the infirmary’s attendant: “You dog!” To which he replied “I am not a dog; I am a Christian like you.” The humiliated slave walked to the slave grave yard, sat there, and died. And, Jean Baptist Dasalu, one of the earliest converts to Christianity in Abekouta, Lagos. He was captured by invading Dahomeans, who sold him to slave traders, who shipped him to Cuba. Officials from London’s Christian Missionary Society learned what had happened and requested the British consul to find him. Months later, the consul wrote back: “we found the needle in the bundle of straw.” Freed and reunited with his family in Lagos, years later, Dasalu reverted to his original religion and took on a second wife.

3. Moats, Sara. "The Three Levels of Transnational Lobbying: A Three-Level Game Analysis" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-08-22 <>

Abstract: Interest groups wish to expand their organization to achieve maximum results. Therefore, it is theorized that an interest group will attempt to persuade the policies of their home government, as well as the policies of other states internationally. In theory, an interest group will both directly and indirectly lobby their home government as well as directly and indirectly lobby the governments of other states internationally. As a result, interest groups will at time become transnational organizations, becoming involved in a three-level game. The domestic level of the game involves the direct and indirect lobbying of the group’s home government. The international level is two-part. The first level involves the groups contact with similar groups in an attempt to indirectly sway the policy outcomes of that state. At the same time, the second level involves the interest group’s attempts to directly lobby the policy makers of the international state. In order to test this theory, an environmental case study will be developed in which the environmental policies of the United States and Canada will be reviewed. Through review, it will be determined which groups supported the legislation, and how the policies developed.

"The Evaluation of Three Feeding Regimens and Three Anthelmintics in a Meat Goat Production System: a Florida A&M University Research/Extension Project" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 5th National Small Farm Conference, Hilton Springfield Hotel and Prairie Capitol Convention Center, Springfield, Illinois, Sep 15, 2009 <Not Available>. 2019-08-22 <>

Abstract: Food safety starts at the farm gate. Proper management and feeding are important to the productivity and survivability of the farm as well as to the health and safety of the food supply. Nutrition and internal parasites are two factors that affect the growth of the meat goat industry in Florida. The project evaluated three common feeding strategies (a cracked corn feed, a 12% crude protein commercial feed, a 16% crude protein commercial feed) and three anthelmintics for their effects on weight gain and economic efficiency, and any resistance among the herd, respectively. The results indicated that the 12% crude protein commercial feed-feeding regimen was the most economical / sustainable, and had the lowest weight gain. In addition, the results indicated that Florida A&M University, Research Extension Center herd might be resistant to the Levamisole type anthelmintic. One of the objectives, also, was to apply the most efficient resources to maintain food safety. The aim is to attain healthier animals through proper nutrition, weight gain and carcass quality, thereby maximizing safe food supply.

Publication Type: Symposium Paper
Abstract: While sparse, some research (Alston, 2005; Bloom & Erlandson, 2003; Dillard, 1995, Loder, 2005; Murtadha & Watts; 2005; Reed & Evans, 2008; Tillman, 2004) has been conducted in the area of African American female school leadership. With the resurgence of the notion of the “great man” theory, it is important to equally give credence to African American female school leaders in order to reflect their contributions in research and practice. This reflection is critical, given that most African American females are and will be placed in some of the most challenging, low-performing schools that are chronically under-funded with problematic environments. Applying the Three Frames of African American School Leadership, the author’s emergent conceptual framework based on previous literature in African American leadership, this paper uses qualitative methods to analyze the practice of three African American female principals in predominantly African American, urban high schools.
