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.

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.

Abstract: This paper adopts a social constructionist perspective to frame an exploration of the socioemotional and relational aspects of stress experienced by women in Marine Corps families. Data from discussion forums designed for Marine Corps wives provided discourse that was analyzed using the constant comparative method and open-coding techniques to reveal salient sources of stress. The discussion lays a foundation for research that may identify strategies for alleviating the challenges that confront military families.

"“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>. 2018-09-21 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p364802_index.html>
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.

5. Butzbach, Olivier. and Konzelmann, Sue. "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>. 2018-09-21 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p728988_index.html>

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.
