An Assessment Of Affirmative Action In Business, Jordan A. Kennedy 2015 University of Connecticut - Storrs

An Assessment Of Affirmative Action In Business, Jordan A. Kennedy

Honors Scholar Theses

Affirmative action has become an inevitable aspect of the employment hiring process. It has been put into place to assist in eradicating the institutionalized discrimination that inherently exists in such practices. On the surface, affirmative action may appear to be something that is beneficial to both the hiring institution and the individual; it seems to be a win-win situation because the business is creating a more diverse workplace and the individual is getting a job that they desired. However, the way that affirmative action is practiced may prevent its overall effectiveness. For example, there are several fundamental flaws with this ...


From Rights To Representation: Challenging Citizenship From The Margins Post 2011, Gal Levy 2015 University of Kansas Main Campus

From Rights To Representation: Challenging Citizenship From The Margins Post 2011, Gal Levy

Mathal

This study asks whether we are the same citizens as we were before the civil awakening that spilled over from tyrannical Arab states to core cities of the global economy and beyond. To address this question it offers an historical account of the role of New Social Movements, civil society, and deliberative and radical democracy as the three epistemic frameworks that have shaped the figure of the rights-bearing citizen, and which have conceived the neoliberal citizen as a choice driven individual. Taking the neoliberal shift in Israel of the 1980s as its point of departure, it then places the 2011 ...

Inmigración Latina Y El Racismo En Los Estados Unidos, Robert M. Pezán 2015 College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University

Inmigración Latina Y El Racismo En Los Estados Unidos, Robert M. Pezán

Celebrating Scholarship & Creativity Day

A través de toda la historia de los Estados Unidos, hasta antes de que fuera considerado los Estados Unidos, siempre ha habido inmigrantes que han venido a esta nación en búsqueda de una vida mejor. La mayoría de la gente que actualmente vive en los Estados Unidos vive aquí gracias a sus antepasados que inmigraron a este país durante algún periodo de su vida. Aunque no todos los estadounidenses son considerados inmigrantes, sus pasadas generaciones fueron en algún momento inmigrantes y pudieron tener éxito asimilándose a la cultura que existía en el pasado. Aunque no siempre ha sido un resultado ...


The Social Costs Of Industrial Growth In The Sub-Arctic Regions Of "Canada", Caylee T. Cody 2015 The University of Western Ontario

The Social Costs Of Industrial Growth In The Sub-Arctic Regions Of "Canada", Caylee T. Cody

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Colonialism in the land that is now called “Canada” is rooted in the ongoing dispossession of Indigenous people’s way of existing and interacting with the world. The present study identifies that the social costs of industrial growth are part of an ongoing process of colonialism which continues to annex Indigenous lands to feed the capitalist economy and reify the power of the state. Through a comparative analysis of literature written about the Attawapiskat First Nation and the Innu Nation, the study reveals that the financial rewards of industrial growth are few, while the cultural, human, and environmental costs are ...

Introduction - The Legacy Of African-American Leadership In Social Welfare, Iris Carlton-LaNey 2015 University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Introduction - The Legacy Of African-American Leadership In Social Welfare, Iris Carlton-Laney

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

The legacy of African-American leadership in social welfare history is only recently finding space in social work literature. The small number of professional journals in social work that publish historical articles, along with institutionalized resistance to the acknowledgement of African-Americans contributions to the development of the profession, have contributed to this dearth of scholarship. The results have been that many professionals are disinclined to perceive of African-Americans as resourceful, skilled and powerful. Instead, the theme of pathology permeates social work literature, teaching, and ultimately social work practice. The social work profession emphasizes the importance of diversity, yet fails to acknowledge ...

Political Islamism In Tunisia: A History Of Repression And A Complex Forum For Potential Change, Sarah R. Louden 2015 University of Illinois at Chicago

Political Islamism In Tunisia: A History Of Repression And A Complex Forum For Potential Change, Sarah R. Louden

Mathal

This paper argues that the growth and legalization of Political Islamism in Tunisia will naturally hinder the contemporary influence of violent extremism, leading to partnership and inclusion within a Democratic government. The basis for this claim rests on the idea that the condemnation and repression of Political Islamism in Tunisia historically backfired and led to the further underground radicalization of Tunisians, along with scores of human rights abuses by authorities. Specifically, this essay will focus on the moderate Islamist party Ennahda, the Salafist party Ansar al-Sharia, and their complex relationship to each other as well as to domestic and regional ...


“Servants, Obey Your Masters”: Southern Representations Of The Religious Lives Of Slaves, Lindsey K.D. Wedow 2015 Loyola University Chicago

“Servants, Obey Your Masters”: Southern Representations Of The Religious Lives Of Slaves, Lindsey K.D. Wedow

The Gettysburg College Journal of the Civil War Era

This paper focuses on how representations of the religious lives of slaves, specifically their abilities to comprehend the Bible and flourish spiritually, became an issue that not only propelled the North and South toward the Civil War, but also perpetuated the conflict. Using original documents from the collections housed at Chicago’s Newberry Library, predominantly sermons written by proslavery ministers as well as documents published by missionary organizations, this paper explores the fierce defense of the institution of slavery mounted by proslavery Christians. Specifically, this paper’s interest is in how the representation of slaves by proslavery evangelical Christians as ...

Prevalence Of Human Papillomavirus Genotypes Among African Women With Normal Cervical Cytology And Neoplasia: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis, Rebecca Kemunto Ogembo, Philimon Gona, Alaina J. Seymour, Henry Soo-Min Park, Paul A. Bain, Louise Maranda, Javier Gordon Ogembo 2015 University of Massachusetts Medical School

Prevalence Of Human Papillomavirus Genotypes Among African Women With Normal Cervical Cytology And Neoplasia: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis, Rebecca Kemunto Ogembo, Philimon Gona, Alaina J. Seymour, Henry Soo-Min Park, Paul A. Bain, Louise Maranda, Javier Gordon Ogembo

Open Access Articles

BACKGROUND: Several meta-analyses confirmed the five most prevalent human papillomavirus (HPV) strains in women with and without cervical neoplastic diseases are HPV16, 18, 31, 52, and 58. HPV16/18 are the predominant oncogenic genotypes, causing approximately 70% of global cervical cancer cases. The vast majority of the women studied in previous analyses were from Europe, North America, Asia, and most recently Latin America and the Caribbean. Despite the high burden of cervical cancer morbidity and mortality in Africa, a robust meta-analysis of HPV genotype prevalence and distribution in African women is lacking.

METHODS AND FINDINGS: We systematically searched 14 major ...


A Critique Of ‘Liberal Peace’ And ‘Conflict Resolution’: A Critical Peace Alternative, Nicos Trimikliniotis 2015 University Nicosia & Symfiliosi

A Critique Of ‘Liberal Peace’ And ‘Conflict Resolution’: A Critical Peace Alternative, Nicos Trimikliniotis

Nicos Trimikliniotis

This paper critiques the notions of peace, peace-building, which often goes together with state-building, development and transitional justice, are connected to the liberal peace model. It proposes that alternative readings are required that to allow reconceptualising of peace and better route in a dynamic and conflict-based reading of society. The critique of liberal peace can pave the way for reading the dialectics peace/war and ethnic conflict/reconciliation in deeply divided societies suffering from ethnic-related violence. It critiques Conflict Resolution (CR) approaches and considers how a sociological reading can enrich, restructure and reconceptualise of peace-in-society in terms of critical peace ...


African-American Males In Prison: Are They Doing Time Or Is The Time Doing Them?, Anthony E. O. King 2015 Case Western Reserve University

African-American Males In Prison: Are They Doing Time Or Is The Time Doing Them?, Anthony E. O. King

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

African-American males comprise a disproportionate percentage of the individuals imprisoned in State correctional institutions across the United States. The purpose of this paper is to describe how incarceration affects African-American males. The author recommends more rigorous and systematic analysis of the prison experience, and how it affects the mental, physical, and social well-being of African-American males. Given this nation's commitment to using imprisonment as the principal means for punishing convicted felons, it is imperative that society ascertain the social, psychological, and economic effects of such confinement on millions of African-American males.

The Influence Of Stress, Gender, And Culture On Type 2 Diabetes Prevention And Management Among Black Men: A Qualitative Analysis, A. H. Seawell, Tera R. Hurt, Margaret C. Shirley

Human Development and Family Studies Publications and Papers

This study used focus-group methodology to seek understanding about the unique influence of stress, gender, and culture on type 2 diabetes mellitus (t2dm) prevention and management among Black men. Twenty men from Iowa were recruited from a larger longitudinal study on Black families; each of these men participated in one of three focus groups. Ninety-five percent of the men in the sample were Black and all were either diagnosed with t2dm (n = 10), were prediabetic (n = 1), or had experience with t2dm through family and friends (n = 9). Our results revealed the existence of significant stress and some pessimism with ...

Office of Community Partnerships Posters

The ANALA Collaborative is the newly-formed umbrella for the four UMass Boston racial and ethnic institutes. This year, with help from a team from the College of Management’s Emerging Leaders Program, we have come together to form ANALA in recognition of the area’s increasing racial and ethnic diversity and the need for majority-minority communities to work together toward common goals. While each of the four institutes will retain its separate identity and programs, we will also place greater emphasis on collaborative efforts in the service of our common mission and vision.


On The Precipice Of Intersectionality: The Influence Of Race, Gender, And Offense Severity Interactions On Probation Outcomes, Kevin Steinmetz, Howard M. Henderson 2015 Kansas State University

On The Precipice Of Intersectionality: The Influence Of Race, Gender, And Offense Severity Interactions On Probation Outcomes, Kevin Steinmetz, Howard M. Henderson

Howard M Henderson

This analysis examines the impact of established predictors on probation failure utilizing a large randomly selected sample of adult probationers. Initial findings suggest that race, gender, location, offense severity as well as risk assessment scores significantly predict probation failure. This study then examines interaction effects between race and gender as well as race and offense severity. Results indicate such interactions may matter in studying probation failure, despite reason to be cautious about their interpretation. Importantly, the results of the interaction model suggest that the interaction between being an African American and male is a significant predictor of probation failure. Additionally ...
