1. Reynolds, Dana. "The Empathy Promise: To Exist Within Ourselves and Within Others" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 41st Annual National Council for Black Studies Conference, Hilton Houston Post Oak, Houston, TX, <Not Available>. 2018-07-15 <>
Publication Type: Panelist Abstract
Abstract: In this essay, I examine four African American novels: Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God, Toni Morrison's Beloved, and Alice Walker's Third Life of Grange Copeland and In Search of Our Mother's Gardens. I analyze how the main characters in the novels use empathy as a tool to develop their identities and counter the numbness in their lives. The courage and vulnerability they demonstrate throughout the novels help them to transform their lives and the lives of those they encounter. The relationships within the novels are developed by gaining a greater self-awareness through critical reflection, understanding, and sharing their past and present experiences. Empathy shared between the characters and themselves, as well as their friends and family, allowed them to learn how to fully exist.

"The Alternatives Within: Explaining Within-Country Variation in Paths of Economic Economic and Financial Development and Governance" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the SASE Annual Conference, Northwestern University and the University of Chicago, Chicago, IL USA, <Not Available>. 2018-07-15 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: The objective of this paper is to offer a coherent framework for understanding the ‘alternatives within’ – the existence and persistence of alternative paths of economic and financial development and governance within institutional contexts that are heavily biased towards one specific path, policy or otherwise. Although evolutionary political economics places heavy emphasis on the mechanisms through which systems and/or policies are self-reinforcing over time – for example, as a consequence of path dependence – the same overarching theoretical framework allows for the existence of ‘secondary paths’ that develop in parallel or underneath the ‘primary’ ones. Building on these insights, we develop a theoretical framework for thinking about the ‘alternatives’ that exist within countries across various fields, including economic policy-making, institutional development and the organization and governance of financial institutions and systems.

"The Conservative-within-the-Liberal and the Liberal-within-the Conservative: Real-Life Worldview Threats and Intergroup Attitudes" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Annual Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Political Psychology, Ergife Palace Hotel, Rome, Italy, Jul 04, 2014 <Not Available>. 2018-07-15 <>

Abstract: Considerable research indicates that the effects of political worldview threats on intergroup attitudes vary as a function of political orientation. Drawing from social-psychological and political theories and research, we argue that individuals' worldviews embed elements of both liberalism and conservatism, and that real-life events can threatened both liberal and conservative views simultaneously. Based on these assumptions, this naturalistic, longitudinal, three-wave study examined the effects of real-life political events on support for political violence and human rights, using a nationally representative sample of Israeli Jews (N = 437). Participants read short passages describing recent political events challenging either conservative or liberal beliefs, classified as either "conservative-threats" or "liberal-threat", correspondingly. Participants then rated the extent to which they perceived each of these events as threatening, and were assigned a score on both threat scales. Participants also completed questionnaires assessing their political orientation, support for political violence, and support for human rights. Data were analyzed using cross-lagged, Structural Equation Modeling analyses. Consistent with our hypotheses, conservative-threats predicted higher support for violence and lower support for human rights, whereas liberal-threats predicted lower support for violence and higher support for human rights, among both liberals and conservatives. Nevertheless, the relationship between threat and attitudes was also qualified by political orientation. These findings suggest the aspect of one's worldview being threatened determines one's attitudes towards violence and human rights, over and above political orientation per-se.

4. Williams, H. "“Afrocentric Decolonizing Queer Theory: Out Within the Old, In Within the New of Afrocentric Thought”" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 33rd Annual National Council for Black Studies, Renaissance Atlanta Hotel Downtown, Atlanta, GA, <Not Available>. 2018-07-15 <>
Publication Type: Panelist Abstract
Abstract: This article examines and problematizes the contribution of the paradigm known as Afrocentric Thought to our understanding of Black sexuality. Using an Afrocentric analysis as well as resources from Black Feminist Thought and Postcolonial Queer Theory, it identifies gaps and weaknesses in previous Afrocentric analysis, particularly as it relates to sexual practices to which certain Afrocentric and Pan-African scholars have been antagonistic such as same-sex sexual practice. In discussing those gaps and weaknesses, it also proposes an approach, Afrocentric Decolonizing Queer Theory (ADQT), for scholars who are interested in using Afrocentric Thought as a liberatory framework for engaging in sexuality studies. ADQT suggests ways of deploying an Afrocentric analysis of queer sexual practices without summarily and incorrectly dismissing these practices as Eurocentric, pathological, or problematic. It particularly addresses scholars who are simultaneously Pan-African and queer in their theoretical and ideological orientations. ADQT provides renewed intellectual life to a paradigm that has, since the 1990s, declined in impact, relevance, innovation, and engagement across Black/Africana Studies as a field. Consequently, ADQT offers new tools for examining, understanding, and utilizing the current challenges and dynamics in Black sexuality in the interests of decolonization, liberation, and empowerment.
