1. Nowell, Branda., Yang, Zheng. and Hano, Mary. "Networks within Networks: How Partnership Position within Community Networks Relates to Partnership Influence" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ARNOVA Annual Conference, Marriott Hartford Downtown, Hartford, CT, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Nonprofits often participate in multiple collaborative partnerships at the same time to achieve their goals. This creates the opportunity for ideas and information among different partnerships to flow throughout the network. By collecting comprehensive membership data from 62 health-oriented partnerships in North Carolina, this paper documents connections across partnerships via shared members. The focus of this study is to investigate the relationship of network position on a partnership's influence within the broader community network. The study will deepen our understanding on how nonprofit organizations could best use their collaboration with other organizations and partnerships to achieve their goals.

"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>. 2019-10-20 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript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>. 2019-10-20 <>

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. 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>. 2019-10-20 <>
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.
