Abstract: The voices and experiences of young indigenous parents are lacking in research, particularly in Aotearoa New Zealand. Consequently, policy has been informed by mostly non-indigenous, older, ‘professionals’ who continue to frame early childbearing and ethnicity in terms of risk factors and negative outcomes for mother and child. To counter the problematisation and stigmatisation of early indigenous childbearing and privilege indigenous perspectives, this research focused on young Māori parents’ experiences of support during pregnancy, birth and early parenting. Kaupapa Kōrero, a qualitative narrative-based approach was used to gather, present and analyse their perspectives. This approach was situated in an indigenizing research tradition and informed by Māori knowledge and oral traditions. Kaupapa Kōrero applies a whakapapa (kinship) framework to the analysis of the interviews. This approach identifies individual stories and demonstrates how they are located within layers of interrelated narratives that influence the experience of parenting for young Māori. These layers illuminate how young parents construct their own changing identity (Tōna ake ao), link themselves to others (Tōna whānau), link their narrative to Māori culture, identity and parenting (Te Ao Māori), and locate themselves in the wider social, economic, historical and political context (Te Ao whānui). Using this approach revealed the intersection of culture and early parenting that may otherwise be overlooked. These insights are invaluable for informing policy, research, service provision and practice that enhance the health and wellbeing of young Māori parents and their children.

Abstract: This study examined stereotype traits of Chinese young adults generated by 60 young (M age = 24.78), 60 middle-aged (M age = 46.38), and 60 older Chinese adults (M age = 66.50). Trait lists were compared across age groups and to Western traits reported in earlier research (Matheson, Collins & Kuehne, 2000; Chasteen, Schwarz, & Park, 2002). Results indicated that Chinese participants had multiple stereotypes and mixed perceptions of the young. While considerable overlap was observed between stereotype traits generated by these Chinese participants and those from earlier studies with Western participants (e.g., energetic, ambitious, lazy, and reckless), unique Chinese traits (e.g., open-minded, filial, hedonistic, and individualistic) associated with young adults were also identified. Whereas the middle-aged and older participants listed an equal number of positive and negative traits, the young participants generated significantly more negative traits than positive ones about their own age group. Discussion focuses on the impact of modernization and cultural change on perceptions of young adults in the Chinese society.

3. Cutts, David., Fieldhouse, Edward. and Russell, Andrew. "Young people and voting: the effect of household and local context on the turnout of young people at a recent British general election" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-01-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p361212_index.html>

Abstract: A number of recent studies have shown that age is a prominent predictor of turnout at the individual level, with the youngest sections of the electorate being the most likely to opt out of voting. However, few if any British studies have provided a reliable estimate of turnout among young people. Moreover, models of young people and voting often neglect the importance of the household, local and political context. This paper addresses these limitations in the literature. First it uses evidence from a random sample of marked registers at the 2001 general election to provide a reliable estimate of participation among those young people who are eligible to vote for the first time in an election. Second, it employs a multilevel logistic model design to examine the effects of household and local context (including party mobilisation) on influencing the extent to which young people, eligible to vote for the first time, turnout in elections. The model also includes a proxy for election-specific factors at the higher level to reflect the theory that young people who are eligible to vote for the first time may be particularly sensitive to such factors as they have yet to acquire the habit or indeed the non-habit of voting.

Abstract: June Jordan in her essay “A New Politics of Sexuality,” describes sexuality as a political space where “human conflict” is perhaps staged more than anywhere else in the world (407). Jordan extends her discussion of sexual politics by stating “ The Politics of Sexuality therefore subsumes all of the different ways in which some of us seek to dictate to others of us what we should do, what we should desire, what we should dream about, and how we should behave ourselves, generally”(408). Although Jordan’s essay challenges the oppression of bisexuality I believe her argument extends to the alienation and silencing of the aging single black women as a sexual and sensual being. In my paper I plan to use the novels Sexual Healing by Jill Nelson and Maker of Saints by Thulani Davis to analyze the relationship between aging and sensuality among single black women 40 and older. Some of the questions I will explore include: How does society dictate to single black women in this age range (and in general) how they should engage with the world of touch and sensuality? How do single black women reconcile their aging bodies and sexual needs in a youth driven culture? How does memory of youth and a youthful being (and body) serve as a vehicle for sexual agency or disrupt agency for these women? Additionally how can single black women past forty be sexual and sensual outside of the erotic? I will argue that there is a void in the inclusion of aging and single black women's sexuality in not only contemporary black feminist literature but in black feminist scholarship and criticism which is in opposition to the intersectional analysis encouraged by scholars currently in the field.

Abstract: Relatively neglected in the literature on young adulthood is a thorough consideration of changes in geography and changes in the neighborhood environment occurring during this period. In the current analysis I focus attention on a specific element of the transition to adulthood: the move out of the parental home. Based on a sample of young adults living in Chicago in the late 1990s, I find that white and nonwhite young adults in Chicago approach the “frontier of adulthood” from severely unequal environments. Whereas the typical white young adult lives in an economically diverse neighborhood as she prepares to forge her own path, the typical African-American lives in a segregated neighborhood consisting mostly of neighbors at the bottom of the income distribution and few at the top. Racial inequalities in residential environments that are present among young adults in Chicago appear to persist, for the most part, through the period of young adulthood. There is little evidence that young adults are able to forge new paths and disperse across the country; instead, through the early years of young adulthood most either remain in the parental home or stay within the city in neighborhoods that closely resemble those in which they were raised. An exception occurs among young adults who leave home and leave Chicago. Whereas nonwhites who leave home and leave the city enter more affluent, less segregated neighborhoods, whites who do so enter neighborhoods that are more economically diverse and less advantaged than their neighborhoods of origin.
