1. Kelly, Hilton. "On Gender and Jim Crow’s Teachers: Hidden Transcripts within the Hidden Transcript" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 40th Annual National Council for Black Studies Conference, Omni Charlotte Hotel, Charlotte, North Carolina, <Not Available>. 2019-08-19 <>
Publication Type: Panelist Abstract
Abstract: My book, Race, Remembering, and Jim Crow’s Teachers, provided a socio-historical analysis of teachers and teaching in all-black public schools in North Carolina during the last of the Jim Crow years—roughly 1940-1970 (Kelly, 2010). The book grew out of being inspired by the emergence of collective memories of legally-segregated schools for blacks before and during the 50th anniversary of the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision, as well as my students’ vicarious memories of “inherently inferior” all-black schools. I set out to uncover hidden transcripts in the collective remembering among Jim Crow’s teachers—former educators in all-black Southern schools before school desegregation. Race, not gender, loomed large in the hidden transcripts made public by the courageous women and men who participated in my study. It is not that gender did not matter; rather, participants believed that race trumped gender in their storied lives. This paper will explore two related topics: 1. What I learned about the life, work, and activism of black educators across three counties in eastern North Carolina in the form of familiar accounts about how they often supplemented, facilitated, and subsidized the curricula so that students did not suffer because of poor and outdated resources in legally-segregated schools, and 2. Why I may not have learned much about the ways that gender (and sexuality) complicated narratives about how black women and men teachers resisted Jim Crow schooling. I revisit a narrative that I wrote many years after publication to re-think why gender may have played less of a role in participant’s fight for educational equality at the local level. My answer suggests that the problem is less about the researcher not asking the right questions but more about the politics of social memory. Some memories remain hidden and cannot be revealed until those with power have been removed or are no longer a threat. Ultimately, gender dynamics remained hidden in my race story about black teachers fighting Jim Crow daily in their classrooms and schools because many of these his/tories are power-laden and cannot be told until those who once had power are no longer powerful.

"Identifying Obscure Manipulations: An Analysis of Online Chat Room Transcripts Between Internet Predators and Adolescents" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology (ASC), Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, CA, Nov 01, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-08-19 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Internet predators are finding new ways every day to prey on the vulnerabilities of youth in chat rooms and lure them into sexual activities. This study will examine chat room transcripts between adult predators and adult volunteers of the group “Perverted Justice” posing as youth. The method of content analysis will be used to interpret the underlying meanings behind the words and actions of the predators and how they affect potential victims. The purpose of this study is to not only encourage further research in a field with too few studies, but to make others aware of the predators searching for children on the Internet and their methods of seduction

Abstract: Investigators do not have access to the "real thing'', only a speaker or writer's narrative representation of past events; complex issues follow for qualitative inquiry. The paper draws on data collected in research interviews with childless women in South India to map methodological problems that connect interviewing, transcription, translation, and interpretation.

Publication Type: Extended Abstract
Abstract: The multiplicity of venues that the Internet offers for social interaction has led to a sustained body of research in computer-mediated communication (CMC), with a prominent body of scholarship examining the efficacy of distinct non-verbal cues that can help CMC approximate the feel of face-to-face (FtF) communication. One such cue that enjoys ubiquitous use in several online communication environments is the emoticon. Despite their prominent presence, however, little experimental research has examined the psychological effects of emoticons in popular online scenarios. We examine the interplay of emoticons with the gender of the person using them and also explore whether the type of topic under consideration makes a difference. We report results from a fully crossed, 2 (emoticons present, emoticons absent) X 2 (male, female) X 2 (serious topic, non-serious topic) between-subjects factorial experiment (N = 120) and show that the experimental manipulations have an influence on impression-formation, affect, and cognition. The findings have theoretical implications for CMC research and offer a promising direction for future inquiry.

Abstract: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are mesoderm derived adult cells primarily resident in the bone marrow. MSCs undergo lineage specific differentiation to principally form adipocytes, chonrocytes, and osteoblasts. In the bone marrow MSCs can differentiate into stroma, which supports and protects the Hematopoetic Stem Cells (HSCs). MSCs also have the capability to transdifferentiate into neuronal cells, such as those of peptidergic and dopaminergic types. MSCs and/or the neurons that they generate can serve as cell therapy. However, the placement of MSCs and/or their neuronal cell product can establish a crosstalk with factors present within the sites of tissue injury. Among these factors are cytokines with pro and anti-inflammatory effects, e.g., IL-1α and TGF-β1, respectively. The RE-1 silencer of transcription (REST) is a transcriptional regulator that represses neuron-specific genes in non-neuronal tissues by remodeling chromatin structure. The effects of these cytokines on REST were studied at different concentrations. These effects were also studied on MSC derived neuronal cells. These studies are important because REST regulates the release of neurotransmitters among its many functions. By studying the effects of opposing cytokines on this important gene regulator, we will better understand the microenvironments impact on MSCs and neuronal cells at the site of tissue injury.
