  • Researching Obama: Race, Health Care, Democracy, Culture

    Monday, Aug. 18, 10:30 AM 12:10 PM (Hilton, Continental Parlor 1) Since his successful run for the presidency in 2008 and subsequent reelection in 2012, Barack Obama's meteoric rise to the nation's highest office has been marked by successes, failures, and near-constant discussion and analysis. Importantly, his campaigns, administration, and presidency have also given rise to a range of sociological research examining the consequences, implications, and significance of his status as the first black president, the initiatives he has sought to champion, and the policy decisions he has advocated in his role. Tackling topics as diverse as health care reform, democratic processes, racial politics, and the role of gender, panelists will present their important empirical and theoretical studies of this historic administration.

  • Religion and Hard Times

    Monday, Aug. 18, 4:30 6:10 PM (Hilton, Continental Parlor 1) In economic recession, does religion motivate support for greater public and private assistance to the poor and higher taxes on the wealthy or does it bolster the belief that unbridled capitalism will lift people out of poverty? Some Evangelical organizations, such as Sojourners, support greater government aid to the poor, while the Tea Party, often with the support of religious traditionalists, seeks reductions in social spending. Polls during the recession indicate that the religiously orthodox are more likely than modernists to still believe in the American Dream, while other research finds that the orthodox are more supportive than modernists of state aid to the poor. Panelists will explore these paradoxes and their implications for the post-recession period, in addition to discussing the perspective of poor women on religion.
