  • Afrocentrism, Hip-Hop, and the “Black Queen”: Utilizing Hip-Hop
           Feminist Methods to Challenge Controlling Images of Black Women

    • Authors: Faith G. Williams
      Abstract: Afrocentrism is a political framework that has aided Black intellectuals and scholars in re-conceptualizing a world with Blackness at its center. However, Afrocentrism has left the most marginalized people in the Black community—Black women, Black queer individuals and Black trans women—invisible and exploited. Hip-Hop Feminism, a Black feminist movement that emerged in the 1980s, developed a powerful framework to refute the oppressive language and sexually-exploitive images of women in mainstream hip-hop. Inaccurate and stereotypical images of Black women continue to plague Black social media, recreating toxic and controlling images of Black womanhood. This paper examines the multifaceted framework of Hip-Hop Feminism and discusses its relevance in dismantling the negative and reductive images of Black women that dominate social media.

  • A Qualitative Study of the Evolution and Erasure of Black Feminism in
           Historic and Contemporary Sociopolitical Movements, And Black Men’s
           Resistance To Black Feminism

    • Authors: Sina H. Webster
      Abstract: Although Black Feminism can be traced to the period of American slavery, what may be considered the most prevalent emergence of “Black Feminism” came about in the mid-1970s, when it proved apparent that the second wave of the Women’s Movement, overwhelmingly white, was discriminatory towards “Black, other Third World, and working women” (Smith, Smith, & Frazier, 2014), who often faced multiple forms of oppression (Simien, 2004). Contemporary Black feminists have followed the activism of earlier Black feminists, leading to a disruption of racial, gender, and sexual norms both in general society, and in the Black community itself. From a Black and intersectional feminist perspective, this research will analyze (1) the history of Black women engaging in feminist movements, (2) the evolution and erasure of Black Feminism, and (3) Beyonce’s visual album, Lemonade, as a product of historic and living Black feminism.

  • Controversies in Batterer Intervention Programs: Doing Good, Well

    • Authors: Yeliani R. Valdez
      Abstract: One in four women has been a victim of domestic violence perpetrated by an intimate partner. Instead of holding the abusers accountable, many victims will be questioned and ostracized for not leaving an unhealthy relationship, which shifts the blame from the abuser to the victim. A variety of Batterer Intervention Programs are available to abusers, including anger management, therapy, and counseling. One such program is the Duluth Model, which focuses on the transformation of batterers through a social change framework. This research will examine the Duluth Model as it is being implemented in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

  • Determining the Interaction Of Atg11cc2-3 with Its Protein Partners Using
           In Vitro Binding Assays

    • Authors: Jesse E. Smith
      Abstract: Autophagy is a mechanism of cellular upkeep by trafficking intracellular material to be degraded. Autophagy is known to be carried out by autophagy related proteins (Atg), yet the exact mechanism of how autophagy occurs has yet to be discovered. Due to its clinical relevance to conditions such as neurodegenerative and muscular diseases, a great deal of current research is being dedicated to further our understanding of how autophagy occurs. Atg11, a protein critical to a yeast’s ability to perform selective autophagy, may also hold many answers to selective autophagy within humans. Atg11 is a coiled-coil protein that interacts with Atg1, 9, 11, 20, 29, along with Ypt1 in selective autophagy. However, it is unknown how these interactions occur. Does Atg11 have multiple binding sites where it may bind to proteins simultaneously' Or does Atg11 have one competitive binding site where it can only bind with a single protein, and then release it before it may bind again' In this research we attempt to purify the binding portion of Atg11 so that it can be used to observe Atg11’s binding interactions with these proteins through a protein binding test mediated by a resin pulldown.

  • Investigating the Species Relationships in Megistostegium (Malvaceae)

    • Authors: Tahsina A. Shimu
      Abstract: The island of Madagascar is known for its rich fauna and flora, and is an ideal area to study species and speciation (Vences et al., 2009), especially species in the Hibiscus tribe (Koopman & Baum, 2008). The island contains unparalleled levels of endemism and species diversity, making it one of the greatest biodiversity hotspots in the world (Goodman & Benstead, 2005). The three morphologically distinct plant species in the genus Megistostegium will be used to study speciation. Previous research has shown that all three species are, genetically, very similar (Koopman & Baum, 2011; Callewaert, 2014). This research aims to use additional molecular data to determine how the three morphologically distinct species in the genus Megistostegium are related. Genomic DNA will be extracted from 110 individual plants, representing one to five populations per species. Individual plants will be sequenced using RADseq next-generation sequencing methods. Genetic variation will be summarized across all individuals, populations, species, and across geographic space. Phylogenies will be constructed to understand how the three species are related.

  • Effects of Submergence Depths on Swimming Capacity of Sea Lamprey

    • Authors: Nayeli K. Sanchez
      Abstract: Invasive sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) is a fish parasite that has damaged the Great Lakes ecosystem. In-stream barriers that prevent upstream passage during migration can help reduce populations of sea lamprey. Exploring their swimming kinematics will help us understand how lamprey navigate across barriers at various water depths. I recorded attempts of sea lampreys to cross wetted ramps varying in water depth from 1 to 7 cm and used video analysis to examine their swimming mode. I found that at the shallowest depth, amplitude and frequency of body undulations were increased, but swim speed was not. I conclude that swimming capacity was reduced in the shallowest treatment. My findings suggest that a lamprey barrier with shallow water could block sea lamprey but allow native fin-fish species to pass upstream.

  • The Effectiveness of U.S. Development Assistance in Fostering Sustainable
           Development in Sub-Saharan Africa

    • Authors: Deborah L. Munganga
      Abstract: The Sub-Saharan region of Africa is one of the most resource-rich continents in the world, but it lacks economic growth. One of the factors contributing to its low economic development is its historical legacy of colonization, authoritarian regimes, and interstate and intrastate conflicts (Ocheni & Nwankwo, 2012; Bayeh, 2015). As a consequence, this sub-region, along with South Asia, has one of the world’s lowest levels of per-capita income. The existing research on Sub-Saharan Africa indicates that little to no development occurs, due to how donor agencies implement aid programs. This paper examines whether U.S. development assistance has fostered sustainable growth in Sub-Saharan Africa, with a specific focus on the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In addition, this research will explore the potential and limitations of U.S. foreign policy to enable sustained development within Sub- Saharan Africa.

  • Neighborhood Risk Factors for Obesity in the Detroit, Michigan Latino
           Community

    • Authors: Ivan E. LeBron
      Abstract: Latinos, or individuals from the Caribbean, South America, and Central America (Santiago, 1996), are affected by a wide variety of health issues, and in particular, obesity. In the United States alone, more than 40% of Latino adults are obese, and almost 23% of Latino children between the ages of 2 to 19 suffer from obesity (Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, 2014). Latinos are ranked second behind African Americans in obesity rates in the United States (Ogden et al., 2014). This literature review will examine the historical and socio-economic factors that contribute to the high obesity rates for Latinos in Detroit, Michigan, and discuss how living in low income areas can affect access to healthy food options.

  • The Status of Green Criminology in Victimology Research

    • Authors: Demarco S. Johnson
      Abstract: Every day, plants, animals, and ecosystems are subject to the dire consequences of anthropogenic environmental degradation. The damage caused by manufactured ecological destruction varies, and can be the result of ecological withdrawals (dangerous extraction of natural resources, such as fracking or deforestation), or ecological additions (dangerous introduction of environmental hazards into the environment, such as pollution). These practices result in millions of victims, and a small (but growing) group of criminologists has taken up the study of the victimization experiences associated with environmental crimes. Many of these criminologists identify as green criminologists, and in their works, argue that environmental crime victims, and research associated with environmental crime victim experience, remains on the periphery of mainstream criminology. This is a serious concern, as in order to (1) recognize the full scope and impact of environmental crime, (2) avoid victim blaming, and (3) generate a comprehensive victimology literature, criminologists must recognize environmental crime victims. This research explores the claims of green criminologists by exploring the representation of environmental crime victims in criminology’s victimology research. Sources are examined for key themes, as well as information on the victim experience of those who have endured environmental crimes. Results, implications, and suggestions for future study will be presented and discussed, in order to draw conclusions about the standing of environmental crime victims in criminology’s victimology research.

  • The Use of Mass Spectrometry to Differentiate Blue Dyes From Indigo and
           Woad

    • Authors: Precious I. Humphrey
      Abstract: Indigo has a long and prestigious history, from the ancient past to our blue jeans today. Indigotin is a dark blue colorant molecule that is produced from many plants, including indigo (Indigofera), woad (Isatis), and knotweed (Polygonum) when the leaves are crushed, fermented, and then reacted with oxygen. All of the indigo-producing plants undergo the same chemistry, so they are difficult to differentiate from each other in archaeological textiles. There are many analytical approaches to the characterization of blue dyes in conservation science, though few are able to reliably distinguish between blues obtained from the various plant sources. Archaeologists and conservators are interested in sourcing the colors that ancient people used, as this provides insight into their selection of materials and the chemical technology necessary to produce dyes. We present here the initial stages of work to use direct analysis in real time (DART) mass spectrometry (as well as other ionization methods) to differentiate blue dyes made from indigo, woad, and knotweed on a variety of fiber substrates. Based on the results for the lab-prepared materials, we will apply the best method to archaeological fibers previously shown to contain indigotin.

  • Can You Hear Us Now' Engaging Young African American Voices in Urban
           Communities and Schools

    • Authors: Alyssia C. Hence
      Abstract: This qualitative study will examine the impact of zero tolerance policies and school discipline practices on the educational experience of African American students, with a concentration on students who reside in urban communities. The objective of this study is to engage the perspectives of African American students about the impact of school discipline on their educational experiences. This study will examine factors that contribute to African American students entering the “school-to-prison pipeline,” and explore the role that suspensions and expulsions play in increasing the likelihood of students entering the juvenile justice system. The data collected in this study will identify the resources students believe should be available in their communities to support their future success. The data from this study will be used to analyze educational experiences and to discover effective intervention practices to attenuate the school-to-prison pipeline.

  • Defining Consent as a Factor in Sexual Assault Prevention

    • Authors: Kyana D. Dixie
      Abstract: One in five women and one in sixteen men are sexually assaulted while attending college (Krebs et al., 2007; White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault, 2014). The inconsistencies in the definition of “sexual consent” may determine which behaviors constitute sexual assault and rape and, in turn, affect victims’ rights as well as conviction and sentencing rates. Insufficient standard definitions of sexual consent or consensual sexual behaviors have resulted in many aggressors serving little to no time in jail (Kahan, 2010). Specifically defining consent and educating college students about its meaning could affect the prevalence of sexual assault. Previous studies focusing on sexual consent have stressed the importance of this, but research is limited. The purpose of this review is to investigate the effects of operationally defining and understanding consent and consensual sexual behaviors on the behaviors and attitudes of college students as a deterrent for sexual assault.

  • Developing an Electronically Controlled External Cavity Diode Laser System
           for use in Atomic Spectroscopy

    • Authors: Samuel C. Carano
      Abstract: The purpose of this research project is to implement and test an electronic control system for an external cavity diode laser (ECDL). ECDLs can be used in atomic and molecular spectroscopy to provide a precise frequency probe of the atomic level structure. [1] More specifically, our ECDL will allow us to excite the valence electron of rubidium atoms. Rubidium is desired because it is an alkali grouped element [2], can be contained easily in a vapor cell [3], and has an excitation wavelength close to that of standardized diode lasers. [4] In order to obtain successful results, a strong focus on the theory, design process, and testing procedures must be incorporated into this project. Current progress shows stable results in controlling internal EDCL temperature and in producing laser output feedback.

  • Study of Microclimate Temperature Distribution in an Artificial Structure

    • Authors: Larry D. Borum
      Abstract: This research investigated temperature distributions inside a parking structure across from the University Library on the campus of Eastern Michigan University. Using an infrared thermometer, we recorded temperature data at specific points on all floors of the structure. We will present the interpretation of our data in light of heat flow mechanisms to gain insight on how heat flow affects local climate. We will discuss how this analysis might be used to predict internal temperature based on external conditions. This technique is also applicable to other features, both natural and artificial, providing us with a tool to study microclimates in ecosystems and other technologic advancements.

    • Authors: Iris N. Vincent
      Abstract: Our society believes that the social practices within the pornography industry are not important enough to be addressed. Indeed, as Gail Dine notes in Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality, “what is surprising is how many people, even those who do not like porn, insist that the carefully constructed images that are formulaically scripted and produced by the multibillion-dollar porn industry belong in the realm of sexual fantasy, not reality” (100). Problems arise from the belief that the social practices intrinsic to porn—racism, creating dirty sexualities associated with women, and popular video searches depicting “forced sex”—exist within a vacuum. This article examines the social practices of pornography, creates a concrete definition of the oppression engendered by pornography, and challenges societal social mores that reflect those within pornography. I limit myself to adult, heterosexual pornography, but I will comment on the taboo of creating “barely legal” porn and the practice of catering to the masculine gaze by the creation of the “willing lesbian” fantasy. This research acts as a literary synthesis of the writing of anti-pornography scholars, experienced actors from the porn industry, and feminist philosophers.

  • Share Cropping Blackness: White Supremacy and the Hyper-Consumption of
           Black Popular Cultureu

    • Authors: Nyambura Njee
      Abstract: This qualitative study will explore the impact of the way that “Blackness” is constructed and commodified for consumption within a White supremacist culture, and examine the effects of this construct on the Black community. According to Leonard and King (2012), in their book Commodified and Criminalized: New Racism and African Americans in Contemporary Sports, “The process of commodification is not simply about selling an essentialized Black culture, but rather a particular construction of Blackness that has proven beneficial to White[s]” (p. 10). This paper will discuss some of the twenty-first century consequences of this phenomenon. The methodology will be conducted through a literature review and a content analysis of various cultural texts including films, interviews, and art that depict Blackness. My belief is that the popular consumption of commodified Black images is related to the maintenance of White supremacy, and thus the systemic oppression of Blacks in the United States.
