  • Radical Legacies: Antonio Gramsci and Contemporary American Politics
    • Authors: Seybold; P.
      Pages: 286 - 305
      Abstract: This article seeks to introduce some of the basic concepts that Antonio Gramsci developed and apply them to recent American politics. It especially looks at political consciousness in the United States and it contradictions and argues that Gramsci’s concept of hegemony is useful in understanding the political landscape in the United States. A crucial element in the right-wing organizing in America stems from the Powell memorandum and the orchestrated attempt to discredit the social movements of the 1960s.

  • Tracing the Liberal Arts Traditions in Support of Service-learning and
           Public-engaged Scholarship in the Humanities
    • Authors: Sandy; M.
      Pages: 306 - 326
      Abstract: Disciplines in the humanities have been slow to adopt service-learning and public-engaged scholarship overall, and scholars opposed to it often refer to the private goals of higher education, including private contemplation shielded from market and political forces, and furthering knowledge for its own sake in their respective academic disciplines. However, some scholars have embraced the public-engaged scholarship worldview, although they maintain it in conflict with the goals of humanities disciplines. Alternatively, other humanities scholars center the civic, ethical, and public purposes of their work. The author outlines the historical origins of the two main academic paradigms in higher education, the "orators" and the "philosophers" that led to these distinctions. The more "public," humanities-based orientation, the orators, evolved first, and it offers its own justification for the humanities in support of public-engaged scholarship. The author proposes additional exploration of this tradition, particularly its understanding of knowledge for ethical and civic action through the "new humanities," which can serve as a theoretical foundation for the humanities in the ways that humanistic sociology became that site of practice for engaged sociologists. Concepts, such as participation, beauty, and practical wisdom, can help develop an authentically humanities-based approach to engagement.

  • Decades after Resettlement: Later Life Experiences of Aging Cambodian
    • Authors: Das, M; Dubus, N, Silka, L.
      Pages: 327 - 345
      Abstract: This study proposes that the experiences of refugees vary across the life course, creating new challenges as refugees grow into old age decades after resettlement. Past posttraumatic stress symptoms may emerge as different symptoms years later, with social role changes within the family and stressors triggered by the social environment surrounding the refugees. After their initial entry into the country decades ago as survivors of political violence, they were provided some material and financial assistance from the federal and state government in the region they relocated. Years later, however, aging population of refugees face new issues that were not present when they first arrived in this country. Scars of earlier traumatic experiences embedded in their psyche resurface requiring therapeutic attention. Social service providers and health care clinicians need to be aware of these changes, as they strive to provide relevant care and services to such groups. Only then can they effectively help refugees and contribute toward their resettlement.
