Session 4: CRITICAL DIALOGUE: Reflections from the Field of Community-Based Research
Room: Atlantic D

Sponsors: Community Research and Development
Institutional Ethnography

Organizers &

Presiders: Amie Thurber, Vanderbilt University
Alison Fisher, York University

Description:  There is an increasing call for researchers to meaningfully partner with those directly affected by social problems in shaping inquiry, designing research, collecting data, analyzing and interpreting results, and informing dissemination. Researchers committed to community based and participatory action research models often work in partnership to support and contribute to local community organizing efforts, base building and social change. Through these models, research and community teams must navigate the powerful, inspiring and often treacherous terrain of fieldwork together. This critical dialogue session invites participants to share best practices and consider the challenges in confronting relationships of power and inequality within community based and participatory action research projects. Topics could include - but are not limited to – researcher experiences with hierarchal power relations between researchers and community members, or within research teams; the interpretative process involved in knowledge production; the role of emotions in research; reflexivity and reflective practices.​

Room: Atlantic C

Sponsor: Program Committee

Organizers, Presiders &

Discussants: Nancy J. Michaels, Roosevelt University
Julie F. Hilvers, Roosevelt University

Description:  Black lives matter: youth led activism in Chicago and the ways in which young people are messaging about social justice issues: race, police violence, and justice in Chicago.

This session will include presentations by young activists in the movements to achieve racial justice in Chicago. This session will illustrate the diverse methods used to demand justice. These include research, social media, organizing and mobilization skills, political and policy savvy, spoken word and other artistic expressions, and deep understanding of the social structures that produce social inequalities. These efforts have spurred an intergenerational movement that has crossed national boundaries as in the case of "We Charge Genocide (WCG)." WCG delegates traveled to Geneva in November, 2014 to the United Nations to report on police brutality that has led to human right abuses in Chicago neighborhoods. The other organization participating in this session is Young Chicago Authors with spoken word to illustrate the power of performance art in social activism.

Organizers &

Presiders: R.A. Dello Buono, Manhattan College
Mia Arp Fallov, Aalborg University

Description:  The Nordic Welfare State is one of the most highly developed in the world. This notwithstanding, it faces a wide range of challenges in the context of a prolonged global shift towards neoliberalism. The purpose of the panel is to discuss and encourage transnational collaboration between researchers from Denmark and other SSSP members regarding contemporary social welfare developments in the neoliberal era. We seek to discuss comparative, interdisciplinary approaches to social problems being exacerbated by consolidated neoliberalism as well as transnational exploration of the potential social policy alternatives needed to confront them. Concretely, one or more research anthologies and possibilities of bi-national institutional cooperation with US universities will be discussed alongside of concrete research proposals. All interested SSSP members are cordially invited to attend.

Room: Pacific 3

Sponsors: Institutional Ethnography

Organizer &

Presider: Matthew Strang, York University

Description:  This session poses the question: how do we/can we research embodied aspects of ruling relations of racialization, sexualization, gender, ability, class, age, etc. in people’s everyday lives? The work that people do in their everyday lives is always embodied and thus, as researchers, how can we incorporate people’s bodies, how they are read and the relationship between bodies into our projects? A distinctive contribution of institutional ethnography is in making empirical links between everyday life and its social organization, which is not only text-mediated but ”body-mediated” (Strang, SSSP 2014). In addition to including papers that make these links, this session will include papers that reflect on how IE’s theoretical and methodological frameworks, as well as other frameworks, are used to understand/map embodied ruling relations. Papers can describe and reflect critically on specific empirical research projects, or focus on the challenges of explicating embodied ruling relations.

Description:  Project NIA: Building Peaceful Communities is the winner of the 2015 Thomas C. Hood Social Action Award. Mariame Kaba, Founding Director, from Project NIA will discuss the organization’s history, mission, and the unique and crucial work it does.

Project NIA offers a new way of thinking about crime and violence. They use the principles of participatory community justice – often called restorative or transformative justice – which has been shown to meet the needs of victims, reduce recidivism, and improve satisfaction with the legal system.

Community-based justice models redefine the goals of the criminal legal system to include the prevention of crime as well as community member involvement in addressing crime. They believe that communities are strengthened when local citizens participate in responding to crime, delinquency and violence because they are more likely to tailor responses to the preferences and needs of victims, perpetrators, and their neighbors.

Session 90: Latina/o Coalitional Politics in the 21st Century: New and Old Challenges Facing Communities Across the Americas
Room: Bering

Sponsor: Program Committee

Organizers: Maura I. Toro-Morn, Illinois State University
Marta M. Maldonado, Oregon State University

Presider: Marta M. Maldonado, Oregon State University

Description:  The proposed panel aims to connect to the intellectual goals of the conference by bringing together scholars/activists who have studied and examined current and past social movements. We know that the 21st century has been one of mass mobilizations around the world. The consolidation of neo-liberal regimes across the Americas has created deep cleavages in poor and working class communities across the hemisphere. In the United States, this is evident in the continuing racial, class, and gender inequalities found in communities of color. Health and labor conditions are also evidence of worsening conditions for many. For immigrants, restrictive immigration laws, massive deportations, and police brutality are evidence of state violence and deteriorating conditions in many communities. Yet, it is also evident that the 21st century has been marked by a new wave of activism and resistance to neoliberal regimes. Chicago itself has been the stage of significant mobilizations under the auspices of the ”Primavera del Emigrante,” the pioneering case of Elvira Arellano, and the range of youth movements springing up in cities across the United States, and also in Mexico and Central America. These new movements seek, among other things, an end to punitive immigration laws, deportations, and family separations. Our panel seeks to contribute to contemporary discussions of resistance, coalition building, and social movement activism by sharing new work seeking to theorize how race, class, and gender identities mobilize families, youth, and communities.

Description:  While institutionalized relations of oppression underlie professional, institutional, and/or community contexts, people continue to navigate and resist inequity stemming from oppressive social relations (i.e., racism, sexism, etc.). The focus of this session is on the social organization of opposition/resistance to inequitable social relations within a variety of neoliberal settings. Presenters will discuss research that considers the everyday work of social actors who take up or create opportunities to work against inequitable bureaucratic and institutional arrangements in organizations; they will offer an analysis of the contradictions of resisting institutionalized inequities and power differentials, and the possibilities of social transformation.

Organizer &

Presider: Courtney A. Waid-Lindberg, Northern State University

Description:  Studies of the urban community draw heavily upon the work of the early Chicago School theorists. Since the early 20th century, both qualitative and quantitative methods have been utilized to examine various social problems in urban communities such as crime/delinquency, alcoholism, teen pregnancy, illiteracy, and housing decline. While policy related to these urban social problems has been developed, the evaluation and the reworking of policy and programs is ongoing. The presentations in this session analyze both historical and contemporary attempts to understand social problems in urban communities through the lens of the Chicago School.

Organizer &

Presider: Opolot J. Okia, Wright State University

Discussant: Arvind Elangovan, Wright State University

Description:  In his celebrated work, Silencing The Past, the Haitian historian, Michel-Rolph Trouillot, discusses the ways in which the production of history by professional historians often involves the ”silencing” of certain voices in the historical narrative and the promotion of others. Utilizing this theoretical framework, the papers in this panel attempt to lift the veil on specific historical narratives through exploration of hidden voices that reflect the intersections of race, class, and gender.

Session 149: The Body and Embodiment in Relations of Ruling and the Social Organization of Life and Health
Room: Baltic

Sponsors: Institutional Ethnography
Sport, Leisure, and the Body

Organizer &

Presider: Matthew Strang, York University

Description:  This session poses the question: how do we/can we research embodied aspects of ruling relations of racialization, sexualization, gender, ability, class, age, etc. in people’s everyday lives? The work that people do in their everyday lives is always embodied and thus, as researchers, how can we incorporate people’s bodies, how they are read and the relationship between bodies into our projects? A distinctive contribution of institutional ethnography is in making empirical links between everyday life and its social organization, which is not only text-mediated but ”body-mediated” (Strang, SSSP 2014). In addition to including papers that make these links, this session will include papers that reflect on how IE’s theoretical and methodological frameworks, as well as other frameworks, are used to understand/map embodied ruling relations. Papers can describe and reflect critically on specific empirical research projects, or focus on the challenges of explicating embodied ruling relations. This session focuses on the above within health contexts and/or ruling relations involving health.

Organizer &

Presider: Sarah A. St. John, University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Description:  Gambling has historically been characterized as sinful vice, and gamblers have often been stigmatized as a threat to the moral, social, and economic order. Concurrent with the expansion of gambling legalization, the frameworks used to study gambling and gamblers have expanded as well. Medical models are now used to explore gambling addiction, and in policy settings gambling is often considered as a legitimate revenue stream in lieu of taxation. This session provides a venue for the sociological examination of multiple dimensions of gambling, including: social forces shaping gambling behavior and motivation; impacts of problem gambling; at-risk populations; new gambling technologies, social media, free-to-play games and internet gambling; media portrayals and public opinion of gambling; and the social and economic impacts of the introduction of gambling in new jurisdictions.
