  • Educators as Leaders: Perspectives on Teaching and the Ethics Associated
           with Culinary Sustainability

    • Authors: Deborah N. Smith
      Abstract: In this qualitative pilot study, the author conducts research on chef educators and their background and interest in, preparation for, and comfort level with teaching college students about culinary sustainability. Five chef educators teaching in a culinary/hospitality program were interviewed about their personal and professional experiences with culinary sustainability. Two broad themes emerged from the data. First, initial exposure of participants to culinary sustainability was impactful and led to subsequent internalized, habitual practices. Two sub-themes under this first finding were related to the influence of early family and early career experiences. Second, continued learning about sustainable culinary practices is primarily self-driven. Participants additionally indicated a need for consistent professional development, particularly as sustainable culinary practices are embedded in a rapidly changing larger context of ethics and discussions about sustainability in general. The author provides professional and leadership development suggestions, as well as ideas for future research that could expand on this pilot study.

  • The Attitudes and Stigmas Surrounding Modern Day Interracial Relationships

    • Authors: Charisse Allen
      Abstract: Interracial relationships are defined as relationships where each person is of a different race than the other. Historically, we’ve seen interracial relationships between slave owners and their slaves and in recent years among many different types of people across different races other than the “traditional” black and white. The current study that will be discussed is concerning people’s views on interracial relationships amid an election and 49 years after the court case Loving v. Virginia which overturned anti-miscegenation laws.

  • Cosmetic Beauty: The Intrinsic and Extrinsic Motivators

    • Authors: Laura Kathleen Morrow
      Abstract: I used a mixed-methods research study for this experiment. I wanted to see if women perceived makeup as a type of value system that reflects on their self-confidence. Previous research has had mixed results and I wanted to do a study with a bigger sample size. I used both qualitative and quantitative methods for data collection. I used a closed-ended survey that asked twenty-three questions and used two personality scales at the end of the survey. In addition, I interviewed radio talk-show host Davi Crimmins from The Bert Show. I asked her seven open-ended questions about her personal experience of going thirty days without wearing makeup. The survey was gender specific to women where 116 participants were recruited and only ninety-four completed the survey in its entirety. Through Crimmins’ personal experience and results from the survey, I found a correlation between self-confidence and makeup. The personality scales have shown the participants to have high self-confidence. Results show that women value makeup in social and professional settings, but do not care about makeup when it comes to running errands.

  • Framework for Ethical Decision Making: How Various Types of Unethical
           Clothing Production Have Different Impacts on People

    • Authors: Ebru Pinar
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate how various types of unethical clothing manufacturing impacts peoples’ shopping attitude in different ways. The study also focused on if there was an effect on how people decided what they find more important and if there was a change in their decision making after being informed. Using an online survey, Kennesaw State University college students, faculty, staff, and community members (n=78) were conducted randomly. As a result, Fair trade (p=0.032), Sweatshop or Child labor (p=0.007), and Sustainable Material (p=0.020) had statistically significant differences after being informed. However, participants did have an increase in their ranking of their ethical priorities of clothing shopping habits (p>0.05). There were also significant differences on how different people relate and put importance of different ethical clothing concerns into their lives such as: Fair trade and gender (p=0.031), Healthy Work Environment and Employment (p=0.045), Sustainable Materials and Ethnicity (p=0.021), Sustainable Materials and Employment (p=0.047), Non-Toxic Dyes and Chemicals and Ethnicity (p=0.019), Locally Sourced Materials and Age (p=0.005), Locally Sourced Materials and Being Students or not (p=0.005), Animal Products and Gender (p=0.034), Animal Testing and Gender (p=0.001), and Animal Testing and Ethnicity (p=0.034). The results show that participants’ ethical priorities of clothing shopping behaviors were relatively favorable linked with being informed. Further research with larger sample groups and more detailed training program is needed.

  • Examining burnout in Division I collegiate athletes: Identifying the major
           factors and level of importance in an athlete’s life

    • Authors: Angel A. Almodóvar Mr.
      Abstract: Burnout is a concept that has been studied within the past 35+ years becoming widely known and recognized around 1980 in various disciplines ranging from the professional workforce, to athletic coaches, to youth sports. The first burnout study conducted within a sport setting focused on coaching burnout, and since then, new developments have occurred concentrating on athletes. Burnout is a term defined as a withdrawal from a particular sport noted by a reduced sense of accomplishment, devaluation or resentment of the sport, with proponents of physical and psychological exhaustion. Thus, the focus of this study is to examine athletic burnout in Division I collegiate athletics. The purpose is to identify the major factors that lead to burnout and the level of importance, or in other words, the factors that have the biggest impact in an athlete’s life. The literature identifies which factors lead and contribute to burnout in athletes including psychological and motivational factors, but fails to accurately point out what specific factors contribute the most to dropout, and more importantly, burnout in sport. Therefore, the study presented here intended to solve this issue by presenting what factors that contribute the most to burnout as identified by the data collected from the athletes. The research question presented is what are the major factors that lead to burnout and which of these factors have the biggest impact and level of importance as identified by the athletes' The participants in this study are all Division I student-athletes (males and females, graduates and undergraduates) at Kennesaw State University (KSU) present at the time that this study took place. The methodology will incorporate a Qualtrics online self-administered computer survey. The survey consists of twenty open-ended and closed-type of questions. The hypothesis is that the KSU student-athletes will identify that 50% of their burnout is attributed to the following four factors: Scholarship implications, coaches’ pressure, parents’ pressure, and the prospect of a lucrative professional career; with scholarship implications contributing to over 70% of the burnout. The hopes of the findings in regard to this study to be able to ascertain which factor(s) or sources induce the largest level of stress and burnout overall for Division I college athletes, and how to mitigate the impact of these factors in the future. Future studies should expand this study to all divisions in collegiate athletics and across multiple universities.

  • Ethical Reform in Bangladesh’s Ready Made Garment Industry: Building on
           the Alliance and the Accord

    • Authors: Serena Newhall
      Abstract: The Bangladeshi garment production industry was examined in terms of current building structure and fire safety mechanisms in place, and the opportunity to build upon those standards in order to strategically address growing market demands for ethically produced garments within the ready-made garment (RMG) industry. In determining whether Bangladesh’s RMG industry could pay above the country’s low minimum wage, and still remain competitive, a linear regression model was used to better understand and quantify the price sensitivity of the country’s RMG export products.

  • Historical Analysis: Textile and Apparel Trade

    • Authors: Zachary Harris
      Abstract: This paper is an analysis of published articles that discuss the history of the Multi-Fiber Arrangement (MFA) to the Post-Agreement on Textile and Clothing (ATC) as well as evaluates the different dynamics and relationships formed by these agreements. The articles primarily focus on different aspects of the agreements and specific countries affected. Throughout all of the articles, industrialized countries and developed countries are interchangeable. A few articles, for example Growing Protectionism (1985), use the term Multi-Fibre Agreement (MFA), which ­­is the same as Multi-Fiber Arrangement. The term European Union (EU) and European Community (EC) are also interchangeable. This paper examines and compares articles to discuss the history of the textile and apparel trade from MFA to present.

  • The Government’s Influence on Sweatshops in Developing Countries

    • Authors: Alicia Whittle Rooks Mrs.
      Abstract: This paper will concentrate on the local influence governments have had on sweatshop factories in developing countries. Based on the literature reviewed and analyzed, it was important to discuss several topics surrounding government influence. Topics covered in this paper include: the ethics behind sweatshops, workers’ wages and their choices, government responsibility, and then ending with introducing the Framing Theory. This particular theory was useful in part because of the method implemented in this research paper. The Framing Theory is closely associated with media content because it attempts to compare what the media says on a particular topic verse what the audience or other outlets relay. However, it can be used for other types of topics and thus has been used to analyze the perception of government influence on sweatshops. To acquire the necessary data, in-depth interviews were employed and emailed to the participants. Email was the best option due to participants’ access to internet in their country. The findings revealed that governments have a large influence on the sweatshops and its workers. If sweatshops were removed, it would lead to unemployment for many or force governments to engage in legit industries that would generate more income. Moreover, findings highlighted that it is very important to educate the workers on their own rights. Further research needs to investigate how sweatshops affect GDP and learn why the income is not included in the country’s GDP.

  • Do the Clothes Make the (Fat) Woman: The Good and Bad of the Plus-Sized
           Clothing Industry

    • Authors: Crystal N. Money
      Abstract: This paper focuses on the relationship between the “women of size” population and the sector of the fashion industry that aims to serve them. This research intends to determine if the fashion industry truly understands the plus-size audience, or if they are simply forgetting an entire audience. It is important to identify how women of size see themselves personally, as a community, and reflected in mass media as that is where most fashion inspiration is derived. The study encompasses three research methods: interviews with self-identified plus-size women; an ethnographic approach to examining the clothes shopping options of a woman of size in Atlanta, Georgia; and an analysis of the current literature and blogs on this topic. Identifying as a plus-size woman herself, the researcher has an obvious bias and commitment to this area of study. This study is the foundation for future works to be undertaken by the author concerning the plus-size body, public confidence, and breaking the normative taboos of society with the body.
