      Abstract: Contexts, Volume 21, Issue 3, Page 8-15, Summer 2022.
      Massive investments in artificial intelligence (AI) have sparked a renewed debate over its impact on how we live, learn, and work. The last few years have also seen a burst of critical sociology about AI, pushing the conversation toward a deeper understanding of structural and intersectional inequalities. Here, we offer five big ideas that highlight what is distinctive about the emerging sociology of AI.

  • Why Populist Leaders Succeed

      Authors: Francesco Duina
      Pages: 16 - 21
      Abstract: Contexts, Volume 21, Issue 3, Page 16-21, Summer 2022.
      We have recently witnessed the rise of populist leaders across the world. What makes those leaders so successful' We still do not quite know. This article offers an answer. The public and private spheres are typically kept distinct and apart in contemporary societies. Populist leaders, however, behave in the public sphere as if they were in the private sphere: they say and do things that are normally only said and done in private. This unorthodox approach resonates strongly with those who feel like the public sphere has left them behind.

      Abstract: Contexts, Volume 21, Issue 3, Page 22-27, Summer 2022.
      In this essay I contrast twentieth century heroes of freedom of speech in the Old and New Lefts with contemporary “cancel culture” and social media censorship. In so doing, my aim is to invite you to think with me about this metamorphosis and what it means for social movement research.

  • White Unity and Prisoner-Officer Alliances

      Abstract: Contexts, Volume 21, Issue 3, Page 28-33, Summer 2022.
      The law enforcement badge is a prized possession for white supremacists. Broader patterns of alliances between law enforcement and civilian white supremacists are endemic to social order in the United States, both in free society and within prisons. Using archival methods on trusty systems in California prisons, I show the development of prisoner-officer alliances that reify the privileges of white power.

  • Neighborhoods’ Peril For The Formerly Incarcerated

      Authors: David S. Kirk
      Pages: 34 - 39
      Abstract: Contexts, Volume 21, Issue 3, Page 34-39, Summer 2022.
      More than 600,000 individuals are released from prison in the United States each year, and 40 percent will be back in prison within three years. Indeed, many social critics have claimed that “nothing works” to rehabilitate prisoners. However, this essay argues that residential change is an overlooked solution to persistent recidivism. It does so by chronicling the life of Kenneth Beaulieu, a formerly incarcerated individual who left Louisiana in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and started a new life in Texas. Kenneth’s story reveals how a fresh start in a new location can help foster a pathway out of crime.

  • Everyday Environmentalism in Europe

      Abstract: Contexts, Volume 21, Issue 3, Page 40-45, Summer 2022.
      While environmental threats affect all nations globally, different countries develop their unique ways of approaching the problem. In addition to the legal framework protecting its natural resources, Europe developed a model of addressing environmental concerns by everyday actions, incorporating sustainable practices into individual lifestyle choices and business practices. This photo essay documents examples of how such solutions are infused into everyday lives of citizens to a great cumulative impact on the region. This gives an inspiration to other nations to work on reducing their environmental footprint and balancing their economic goals with the mindful stewardship of nature.

  • How Anti-Asian Racism is Experienced

      Abstract: Contexts, Volume 21, Issue 3, Page 48-51, Summer 2022.
      Growing attention has been given to the massive spike in anti-Asian hate crimes since the COVID-19 outbreak. But it is also essential to recognize that not all Asians experience the rise of anti-Asian racism to the same degree. Many individual and contextual factors may shape individuals’ subjective experience of anti-Asian racism. Underlying Asians’ differential experiences are the unequal psychological consequences they bear. This essay explores nativity, and co-ethnic concentration, as well as how they interact to affect Asians’ experience of anti-Asian racism.

      Abstract: Contexts, Volume 21, Issue 3, Page 51-53, Summer 2022.
      In many documents left behind by recent white domestic terrorists we see the re-emergence of a national identity that fuses people and land. From Christchurch to El Paso, old articulations "the people" which came to a head most famously in the Nazi sense of the volk and the politics of blood and soil are today resurfacing. This article traces the broad contours of this politics that fuses ethnos and ecos in order to morally justify political exclusion, genocide, and today terrorism via mass shooting.

      After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the sex ratio at birth in Azerbaijan, a former Soviet Republic, became very skewed. Historical data suggest that the collapse of the Soviet safety net, coupled with the increased availability of ultrasounds and longstanding son preference, may have facilitated the practice of sex/gender selection in post-Soviet Azerbaijan.

  • On Measuring Immigrant Income

      Authors: Kimberly Higuera
      Pages: 60 - 63
      Abstract: Contexts, Volume 21, Issue 3, Page 60-63, Summer 2022.
      This brief draws on the case of Mexican immigrants, the most populous and constant remitting immigrant group in the United States, to show how remittances are a blind spot for US agencies, like the Census Bureau and IRS. Failing to account for remittance expenses likely leads to the overestimation of income and under-estimation of poverty rates in Mexican immigrant communities. Income and poverty figures of other consistent remitting immigrant groups, like other Latin American and Caribbean immigrants, may also be misestimated. There are two accessible ways to capture the impact of remittances: 1. the Census Bureau should alter the Supplemental Poverty Measure to account for international medical and childrearing expenses and 2. the IRS should allow foreign-born people to claim foreign-bound transactions of any sum that support caretaking, healthcare and education as deductions and account for them when adjusting taxable income. These changes would create a better economic portrait of immigrant communities and facilitate access to safety net programs.

  • Why Indian Americans are Successful

      Authors: Tom Chiang
      Pages: 64 - 64
      Abstract: Contexts, Volume 21, Issue 3, Page 64-64, Summer 2022.
      In 2020 IBM tapped Arvind Krishna to be their next CEO. While his success should be celebrated, I argue that Indian American success, as a whole, can be attributed to: (a) the immigration policy of the United States since 1965 and (b) the migratory patterns of Indian nationals when they immigrate. Specifically, the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 and the Immigration Act of 1990, as well as the distinct migratory patterns among Indian nationals, especially within the last 5 years, resulted in unprecedented economic success among Indian Americans not seen in most other major Asian American communities
