Abstract: In this paper we report findings from a survey of state legislators in which we ask them about the time they spend being a legislator. As expected, we find substantial differences in self-reported time on the job in different states. But we also find that legislators spend more time on the job than one might anticipate, given the "part-time" nature of many state legislatures. We discuss these findings in the context of the concept of legislative professionalism. Furthermore, we model time on the job as a function of a series of institutional-level and individual-level variables. We also explore the variety of activities involved in the legislative job.

Abstract: India's rapid technological growth has given the nation the opportunity to combine its population explosion with impressive gains in economic investment and output. Furthermore, India is now a significant player in global politics, entering the nuclear arm race and continuing to counterbalance relations with neighbor nation Pakistan. How does India fare in coverage by the London Times and New York Times versus the coverage in the national Times of India? Is India taking over the region's political reins? Can India become the next superpower? This study will attempt to answer those questions through a content analysis of the press through Framing Analysis Theory. Media scholars have also explored the question of which factors come into play in influencing frames. News is a socially constructed product, not a reflection of an objective reality. News is not created out of a vacuum, but is influenced by a host of factors. The factors I will be analyzing in the content of news stories about India are of intrinsic or event-related value such as prominence, conflict, human interest, timelessness, proximity and deviance.

Abstract: Transcendental philosophy flourishes under the prosperous reign of Frederick the Great in small, then Prussian Königsberg. Two centuries later, systems theory unfolds in Eastern Westphalia’s proverbially provincial Bielefeld under the last effects of post-WWII ‘economic miracle’. And yet, just like Kant, Luhmann’s autopoietic account of modern society takes up the Ant’s point of view, not that of the Cicada. Rejecting the aspiration-led ways of world-making celebrated in Luhmann’s contemporary Frankfurt (as in Kant’s contemporary Berlin), it replaces a rhetoric of promise for a discipline of taking-into-account. Poet Gottfried Benn’s motto “Erkenne die Lage!/Acknowledge the situation!” aptly summarizes this preference.

The task of thinking modern society – and not just economy/ecology – in terms of household and sustainability requires Luhmann to claim (against kantians, hegelians, marxists and the entire consensus of political philosophy) that the world of morals and politics as we know them is a world we have lost beyond recovery; that the function of ethics has shrunk to the duty of ‘warning against morals’; that modern society finds its ultimate reality not in shared values but in the simultaneous co-occurrence of numberless communications; that society results not from consensus maintenance but from communicative events giving rise to further communicative events.

Since Luhmann’s death (1998), the world of world society has changed dramatically. In the West, the turbulent contraction of margins of possibilities has cast the spell crisis on a growing number of issues, and spread a veil of ignorance over the fine line separating use and abuse. Jean de la Fontaine’s fable’s talented singer, the Cicada, has fallen into its winter silence. What has the Ant ‘social autopoiesis’ to suggest in these new conditions? I shall outline some of the challenges that program the upcoming redistribution of responsibilities between ‘politics’ and ‘society’: a rationality of codes, programs that cannot but imperil the values and doctrines of individual entitlement; a depoliticised concept of society; a citizen-individual deprived of her tenure as the ultimate constituent of social reality.

Abstract: Recent research shows that holding student loan debt negatively affects graduation outcomes, especially for students with more than $10,000 in loans. However, we have yet to understand whether student debt creates inequalities in the college experience. We use data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Freshmen (NLSF) to analyze how accruing loans affects college student performance and engagement, broadly defined. Our findings suggest that indebted students have lower cumulative GPAs than non-indebted students (net of time spent at a work-study job) and that they are more likely to view their college experiences in a negative light. Although we cannot isolate a causal mechanism for this disadvantage, we explore the role of cognitive factors such as concern about repaying the loans after graduation. Future research could address these mechanisms in more detail, highlighting the unique aspects of college debt that affect students independently of their social class backgrounds.
