Color-Blind Contradictions And Black/White Binaries: White Academics Upholding Whiteness, Demerris R. Brooks-Immel Ed.D., Susan B. Murray Ph.D. 2017 Santa Clara County Office of Education

Color-Blind Contradictions And Black/White Binaries: White Academics Upholding Whiteness, Demerris R. Brooks-Immel Ed.D., Susan B. Murray Ph.D.

Humboldt Journal of Social Relations

This qualitative study maps ‘locally situated’ (Twine and Gallagher 2008), contours of whiteness as cultural practice and institutional discourse by examining how white college faculty, staff, and administrators respond to multiracial educational environments and multicultural ideals. Drawing on depth interviews with thirty white administrators, faculty, and staff, this study finds that these white educators adhered to an intermittent form of color-blind racism (Bonilla-Silva, 2009) that enabled them to hold fast to the fiction that race has no meaning in their lives, yet remains the single-most defining dimension of the lives of people of color. This analysis identifies five contextually-embedded manifestations ...


The Importance Of Faculty Appreciation And Recognition: A Case Study Of One Institution, Allison Sahl 2017 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

The Importance Of Faculty Appreciation And Recognition: A Case Study Of One Institution, Allison Sahl

Humboldt Journal of Social Relations

This study examines racial differences in faculty satisfaction with appreciation and recognition at a large university in the western United States. Using organizational socialization theory, I argue that appreciation and recognition are important to overall faculty satisfaction and, ultimately, the satisfaction with the institution as a place to work. Racial differences exist in these measures, suggesting Asian faculty are least satisfied. These results suggest that challenges to diversifying higher education institutions may rely, in part, on the acknowledgment faculty members receive for their work and from whom these acknowledgments are made. Additionally, these measures influence overall satisfaction with the institution ...


Introducing The Invisible Man: Black Male Professionals In Higher Education, Claudine Turner, Liz Grauerholz 2017 University of Central Florida

Introducing The Invisible Man: Black Male Professionals In Higher Education, Claudine Turner, Liz Grauerholz

Humboldt Journal of Social Relations

The absence of Black male professionals in higher education pose a serious challenge to diversity and social justice in colleges and universities. Not only does this paucity reinforce the dominant racial system within these institutions and contribute to the marginalization and discrimination experienced by these men, the lack of Black men in professional positions has serious implications for the retention and graduation of students of color. Yet, despite their important role, very little research exists about their experiences as professionals within institutions of higher education. This study fills this gap by examining Black men working as faculty, administrative or professional ...


Moving The Needle On Equity And Inclusion, Kris De Welde Ph.D. 2017 Florida Gulf Coast University

Moving The Needle On Equity And Inclusion, Kris De Welde Ph.D.

Humboldt Journal of Social Relations

This article, adapted from an invited lecture given by the author, addresses intersectional inequalities in U.S. higher education, particularly as they impact faculty. With a focus on structure, culture, and climate, current data is presented, highlighting the variety of ways in which academia remains stratified. These patterns contribute to continued inequality, inequity, marginalization and discrimination. A secondary focus is on change, on “moving the needle,” exploring specific strategies for how institutions can transform and individuals can labor as change agents for equity and inclusivity.


Slices: Critical Theory As Praxis And Research-Based Service Learning, Anna C. Smedley-López, Heidi R. Johnson, Arléne Amarante 2017 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Slices: Critical Theory As Praxis And Research-Based Service Learning, Anna C. Smedley-López, Heidi R. Johnson, Arléne Amarante

Humboldt Journal of Social Relations

Abstract: In an era of increasing racial and ethnic diversity, both in the larger U.S. society and in institutions of higher education, using teaching strategies that explicitly address racial justice can be a meaningful way to engage a diverse student. Service Learning Initiative for Community Engagement in Sociology (SLICES) is a research-based program in the Department of Sociology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas that uses critical theories as praxis to foster academic and professional development, and civic engagement while paying particular attention racial justice. This paper describes the use of Feminist Standpoint Theory and Information Has Value ...


Innovating The Teach-In To Transform The Faculty: Findings From A #Blacklivesmatter Teach-In, Xavier L. Guadalupe-Diaz, Lina Rincón, Virginia Rutter 2017 Framingham State University

Innovating The Teach-In To Transform The Faculty: Findings From A #Blacklivesmatter Teach-In, Xavier L. Guadalupe-Diaz, Lina Rincón, Virginia Rutter

Humboldt Journal of Social Relations

College students across the U.S. have been mobilizing their campuses in exposing institutional racism, biases, and curriculum structures that have historically marginalized students of color. As a response to ongoing racial justice movements such as #BlackLivesMatter, we developed a new teach-in model with the aim of creating a transformative experience for faculty and students. Our teach-in challenged faculty to incorporate topics related to #BlackLivesMatter to the discipline-specific content of their course during the same one-week period; this was followed by a campus-wide town hall event. Framed by critical race theory with the goal of creating transformative learning for faculty ...


How Far Have We Really Come? Black Women Faculty And Graduate Students' Experiences In Higher Education, Lori Walkington 2017 CSU San Marcos

How Far Have We Really Come? Black Women Faculty And Graduate Students' Experiences In Higher Education, Lori Walkington

Humboldt Journal of Social Relations

This paper presents a critical overview of the sociological research on Black women's experiences as graduate students and faculty in higher education, with a focus on research since 1995. In interaction with the social inequalities of race and class, how are Black women faculty and graduate student’s experiences with sexism, racism, and classism reproduced within the institution of higher education? What kinds of policies have been implemented to address these problems? What changes, if any, have there been in the experiences of black women faculty and graduate students over time? How do Black women scholars fare in relation ...


A Tale Of Two Settings: Rethinking Methods And Approaches For Diversity Research, Michelle Samura 2017 Chapman University

A Tale Of Two Settings: Rethinking Methods And Approaches For Diversity Research, Michelle Samura

Humboldt Journal of Social Relations

In order to better understand the range of experiences of diverse college students, scholars engaging in diversity research must be mindful of our methodological assumptions. Existing research on environment and space suggests that the concept of a “setting” is not neutral or static. In this article, I emphasize the need to consider campus spaces as dynamic and fluid. I also suggest that depictions and reports of studies’ settings should capture diverse perspectives because different populations can view a single setting very differently. A singular version of a research setting may be inadequate. I offer an example of how one setting ...


Masculinity: Understanding Authority Across Institutional Settings As Social Control, Andre Martin 2017 University of Washington Tacoma

Masculinity: Understanding Authority Across Institutional Settings As Social Control, Andre Martin

Global Honors Theses

Masculinity is observed here as it relates to authority, and as it functions within discourse surrounding the American penal and health care institutions. Understandings of race and gender are dictated by beliefs that masculinity can be “achieved,” or functions as a value within society. This piece works to stress that masculinity is instead a worldview, which assists in the distinguishing and perpetuation of dichotomy tied to plays of superiority and inferiority. It is for this reason, when recognizing masculinity within a capitalist global context, abolition becomes a necessary approach, when attempting to confront masculinized authority and institutions.

Toward An Inclusive Islamic Identity? A Study Of First- And Second-Generation Muslims In Canada, Aisha Birani 2017 The University of Western Ontario

Toward An Inclusive Islamic Identity? A Study Of First- And Second-Generation Muslims In Canada, Aisha Birani

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Toward an Inclusive Islamic Identity? A Study of First- and Second-Generation Muslims in Canada examines the intergenerational differences between first- and second-generation Muslims living in Canada, and the way in which they define their personal identities as both Muslim and Canadian. It aims to investigate the integration experiences of Muslims in Canada in order to understand how closely they derive a sense of belonging from Islam and/or their religious communities, and how their identification with Islam limits or stimulates their sense of belonging in Canada. The main research question I pose, therefore, is: how does being Muslim affect the ...


Mass Shootings And The Media: How Race And Ethnicity Influence Media Coverage, Emily Wheeler 2017 San Jose State University

Mass Shootings And The Media: How Race And Ethnicity Influence Media Coverage, Emily Wheeler

Themis: Research Journal of Justice Studies and Forensic Science

Topics related to crime and the criminal justice system comprise a majority of topics discussed in the media. This study explores how media coverage of mass shootings varies based on the racial or ethnic identity of the shooter. Topics examined include popular beliefs and misconceptions about the race of mass murderers, the role mass media plays in influencing public perceptions about race and crime related topics, and the alarming rate at which the public recognizes and accepts the media as a reliable source of information when official data sources provide a much different picture. Further analysis of the Columbine High ...


The Minorities Within The Minority, Gloria P. Aiten 2017 Reynolds High School

The Minorities Within The Minority, Gloria P. Aiten

Student Research Symposium

The poster is based off of the research paper I am currently doing, it is about how in the Western Society the Asian-Pacific Islanders are categorized as one, but in reality they're two different ethnicity and how the PI are being misidentified. In other words, imagine putting a dog and a cat into one category. Yes they're both house pets, but they're two different species. That is exactly what's happening between the API community.


Papers Please: Immigration, Enforcement, And Remittances, Jose A. Rojas-Fallas 2017 Portland State University

Papers Please: Immigration, Enforcement, And Remittances, Jose A. Rojas-Fallas

Student Research Symposium

Immigrants are an understated agent in local economies. Whilst legal immigrants may be accounted for in the macro realm, illegal immigrants are very much an externality. Immigrant agents participate heavily in local economies, almost exclusively, due to their status and the implicit risks associated with it. Immigrants’ decision to migrate towards better economies come with the goal of achieving prosperity that more than likely would not have been possible in their location of origin. A majority of immigrants are heads of households that migrate alone seeking greater wages to support their household. They do this through remittances. These are capital ...


Culture Beyond Borders: A Postcolonial Analysis Of Multicultural Education, Alex Diaz-Hui 2017 Portland State University

Culture Beyond Borders: A Postcolonial Analysis Of Multicultural Education, Alex Diaz-Hui

Student Research Symposium

Using Third-World feminist and postcolonial theory, this research complicates the narrative of culture in education. While multicultural education is well intentioned, it creates caricatures of communities of color. Multicultural education also functions through an anthropological perspective of culture, one that relays on portraying communities of color through national cultures. According to Third-World feminist scholarship, particularly through the writings of Uma Narayan, national cultures do not exist but are actually constructed through distinguishing the colonizer and the colonized. Culturally responsive pedagogy provides a theoretical framework that attempts to remedy the issues of multicultural education. However, it fails to separate itself from ...


Employment Status And Residential Location: The Structural Disadvantages That Challenge The Health Of Low-Income Latinos In Walla Walla, Wa, Neha Naidoo 2017 Whitman College

Employment Status And Residential Location: The Structural Disadvantages That Challenge The Health Of Low-Income Latinos In Walla Walla, Wa, Neha Naidoo

Honors Theses

There are public health insurance programs that intend to reduce health care disparities among various racial and ethnic groups, but these efforts often neglect to address the structural foundation that fuels these disparities. In focusing on an aspect of this issue that is relevant to Walla Walla, where there is a large Latino presence, I investigate the structural factors that challenge the health of low-income Latinos working and residing in Walla Walla. This thesis explores how employment status and residential location may challenge low-income Latinos’ ability to sustain their health and pursue health care services at local treatment centers.


An Analysis Of Ohio School Districts, Ernest M. Oleksy 2017 Cleveland State University

An Analysis Of Ohio School Districts, Ernest M. Oleksy

The Downtown Review

Money has recently been posited to be a panacea for education: the more a district spends on its students, the better their results will be. However, actuarial analysis of school districts shows that this ideology is muddled in inconsistency. To determine the effect of money on education, the Ohio Report Cards of four school districts were observed. Upon inspection, explanations for the evident correlations are made to discover that money does not have an additive effect on academic success.
