  • Basque Women in Exile: Remembering Their Voices and Impact in Literature
           Through the Cultural Magazine Euzko-Gogoa

    • Authors: Ziortza Gandarias Beldarrain
      Abstract: Following the War of 1936, many Basque individuals, families, politicians, artists, and intellectuals left the Basque Country and went into exile. According to José Angel Ascunce, the tragedy suffered by those exiled is revealed by two principles: the geographical breakdown and the breaking of one’s identity. For Basque women specifically, exile brought renewed self-definitions of purpose and identity, as well as expectations imposed upon them by men. This essay will discuss how Basque female writers addressed the tragedy undergone and the roles they took on, from exile, through their participation in the Basque cultural magazine, Euzko-Gogoa (Basque-Will).

  • Gauging Interest: BAS/IPS Student Collaboration Group

    • Authors: Tracy J. Meunier
      Abstract: An initiative to launch a student-led collaboration group within the BAS/IPS program aimed to provide valuable feedback to the program’s directors was recently put into place. To launch this new initiative in the intended Fall 2023 semester, the program's directors require vital information from prospective students. This paper is an overview of the approach taken to understand why or why not students would be interested in participating in a student-led group that would benefit the program they are enrolled in. A survey was sent intended to provide responses with valuable feedback to the decision-makers regarding the new student collaboration group. The results of the survey are included.

  • Financial Advisory Firm: Mark's Financial Solutions

    • Authors: Mark Y. Foruria
      Abstract: This business plan project provides research on financial advisor firms, financial education and literacy and money management in American society. There are numerous tools and resources available to become financially independent and literate. The problem is that all this information does not reach the communities that need them the most (low-income), especially the youth because it is not taught in school. To address the financial illiteracy issue among the American population I created a business plan, offering the financial services the people need most. At the same time, I created this capstone project doing some research on people's financial health and knowledge in America. With this project my goal is to provide information, guidance, knowledge and financial advice to people suffering from financial illiteracy and struggling with money management in their daily lives. For that, I will create a financial advisory company that provides the necessary services to assist individuals with their financial situation and improve their daily lives.

  • Municipal Arts and Cultural Plans: Implementation and Impact

    • Authors: Carolyn G. Loh et al.
      Abstract: Arts and cultural planning is a growing subfield of planning, but we know little about how arts and cultural master plans are used in daily practice. Based on a survey of planners in 64 U.S. cities, we found that arts and cultural planners draw on arts and cultural plans more and view these plans as more influential than do general planners. Respondents highlighted plans’ importance in increasing community pride, government support for creative and cultural organizations, and in supporting economic development and place-based interventions. Participants thought they had made good progress towards implementation but still had work to do.

  • Social Media as an (Un)Supportive Resource for Military Partners Coping
           with Military Lifestyle Challenges

    • Authors: Kelly R. Rossetto et al.
      Abstract: he current study explored how romantic partners of active-duty service members perceived social media as (un)supportive when dealing with military lifestyle challenges. This study also explored coping and support paradoxes as they play out when military partners are using social media to help them cope. Twenty-four partners (female, n = 22; male, n = 2) participated in interviews. Participants reported mostly using Facebook (e.g., spouse groups) for dealing with military lifestyle challenges. Supportive functions included seeking and providing support and relational maintenance and development. Unsupportive functions included reinforced boundaries and support breakdowns. Findings are discussed with a focus on communal coping and coping and support paradoxes.

  • “It’s Always About Challenging and Supporting”: Communicative
           Processes of Resilience in Higher Education

    • Authors: Kelly R. Rossetto et al.
      Abstract: Based on the vast challenges college students experience, and the current mental health crisis on college campuses, the current study investigated how student-support providers assist and encourage students to enact resilience. We analyzed data from interviews with 25 campus student-support leaders in regard to how they support resilience in college students. Consistent with the communication theory of resilience (Buzzanell, P. M. (2010). Resilience: Talking, resisting, and imagining new normalcies into being. Journal of Communication, 60(1), 1–14. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1460-2466.2009.01469.x), participants discussed interactions and programming that aligned with all five communicative processes (crafting normalcy, affirming identity anchors, maintaining and using social networks, finding alternative logics, legitimizing negative feelings while foregrounding productive action). Further analysis led to four themes, which helped us develop a framework for supporting student resilience that included mattering and belonging, mentorship, reframing and reorientation, and reflection and finding strengths. Using this framework, we discuss theoretical and practical ideas for supporting students through the challenges associated with the college environment.

  • Associations of Adolescents’ Vocational Anticipatory Socialization:
           Exploring the Roles of Favorite Television Characters, Gender, and
           Parent-Child Communication

    • Authors: Larissa Terán et al.
      Abstract: Three primary purposes guided the present study: to examine the role of adolescents’ favorite television character characteristics on adolescents’ wishful identification toward the characters’ job, to examine the role of television and family on adolescents’ vocational anticipatory socialization, and to explore whether the associations varied by gender. Data were collected from 330 adolescents. Intrinsic work values, easy-going work perceptions (as reported by the adolescents), and gender of adolescent girls’ favorite television characters were positively associated with wishful identification. The television characters’ easy-going work perceptions were positively associated with adolescent boys’ and girls’ own easy-going work aspirations. Finally, communication with parents about work moderated the association between parents’ and adolescent boys’ and girls’ easy-going work aspirations.

  • On a Hypothesis for ℵ0-Bounded Groups

    • Authors: Marion Scheepers
      Abstract: We show that it is consistent, relative to the consistency of a strongly inaccessible cardinal, that an instance of the generalized Borel Conjecture introduced in [6] holds while the classical Borel Conjecture fails.

  • Does Accuracy Matter': Methodological Considerations When Using Automated
           Speech-to-Text for Social Science Research

    • Authors: Steven J. Pentland et al.
      Abstract: The analysis of spoken language has been integral to a breadth of research in social science and beyond. However, for analyses to occur with efficiency, language must be in the form of computer-readable text. Historically, the speech-to-text process has occurred manually using human transcriptionists. Automated speech recognition (ASR) is advertised as an efficient and inexpensive alternative, but research shows this method of speech-to-text is prone to error. This paper investigates the viability of using error prone ASR transcriptions as part of the methodological process of language analysis. Results show that at the individual feature level, analysis of ASR transcriptions differ dramatically from human transcriptions. However, when the same features are used for classification, a common machine learning task, performance results between ASR and human transcriptions are similar. We present these findings and conclude with a discussion on the methodological considerations for researchers who opt to use automated speech recognition for social science research.
