    In: Research on Aging, November 2012, Vol.34(6), pp.714-737
    Description: This study sought to understand the ways that adult daughters and their parents make sense of the older adult’s aging and one another’s changing roles within the context of the decision to move a parent to a care-related facility. In particular, the decision to move a parent to a care-related facility provides a context for the study of uncertainty, ambivalence, and other concerns connected with role transitions and decision-making difficulties. How older parents and adult daughters communicate about and cope with these challenges was compared. Babrow’s problematic integration theory provides a framework for this research. A qualitative study employing in-depth interviews with 44 residents at continuum-of-care facilities and 12 adult daughters of residents was conducted. Findings indicate that both parents and daughters experience significant problematic integration. However, their attempts to cope are in marked contrast to one another. These differences, along with theoretical and practical implications, are discussed further.

    Description: Schizophrenia is a heritable mental disorder with a complex genetic aetiology potentially implicating glutamatergic dysfunction. Following a search for functionally relevant genes with evidence of linkage to schizophrenia, we selected HOMER2 for as a candidate gene for investigation using a multi-stage association design. Twenty-six tagging SNPs were genotyped in 401 cases and 812 controls and associated SNPs were analysed in an independent sample of 408 cases and 804 controls, all from Ireland. Secondary replication analysis was undertaken using the International Schizophrenia Consortium (ISC) European sample of 1287 cases and 1128 controls. Significant associations were found at five SNPs in the first Irish sample ( 〈 0.05), but were not replicated in the second Irish sample. SNP rs2306428 was significantly associated when the two samples were combined ( = 0.008, OR = 0.73) and also by proxy in the ISC sample (rs17158184, = 1.0, = 0.019, OR = 0.75). The protective allele at rs2306428 removes a predicted splice-enhancer binding site where Homer2 is naturally truncated. We did not detect an allelic effect of rs2306428 on neuropsychological function nor on HOMER2 splicing. This study supports a role for HOMER2 gene in schizophrenia susceptibility. Further work is required to confirm and elucidate the role of HOMER2 and interacting genes in schizophrenia aetiology.

    Description: Research has been conducted on the BsgA protease substrate important for the developmental gene expression in Myxococcus xanthus. The regulatory components of the BsgA protease-dependent regulatory pathway have been identified via isolation of mutations which bypass developmental requirement for the protease.

    Description: How long-term inmates perform any number of identities across the span of a prison career is a question that must be negotiated by each individual as he struggles with the perils of life behind bars. With a phenomenological and grounded theory approach, this study sought to demonstrate how inmates in a men's maximum security prison enact their evolving identities across the span of their incarceration and what challenges they experience in doing so. Problematic integration further clarifies these challenges. Namely, negotiating multiple divergent identities results in significant uncertainties, ambivalence, and divergence as inmates struggle with how best to communicate.

    Description: How can the average person influence environmental policy making? To answer this question, we draw on 21 in-depth, semi-structured interviews with environmental activists, lobbyists, and legislative staff members at the state level. In addition, we supplement our data with field notes at lobby days and legislative hearings as well as 22 interviews with state capital interns. We find that public feedback (e-mails, letters, phone calls, and lobby days) focuses attention on environmental bills and turns them into public issues. We discuss the rare conditions under which e-mail advocacy is modestly effective and also detail the continued importance of personalized communication in interactive lobbying by phone and in person. Environmental activists strategically deploy moderate identities (i.e., concerned parent) in order to transform public issues into personal stories that legitimize their concerns, depoliticize problems, and establish connections with legislators. Personal stories, in turn, benefit from a logical fallacy or the assumption that vocal constituents likely represent concerns shared by additional community members. This interpretation has the potential to convert individualized problems back into public issues with policy solutions.

    Description: This paper has two main objectives. One is to consider the central place of human rights in today's global order and the other is to articulate a theoretical framework that will make sociological sense out of current human rights discourse and practice. Human rights emerged from, but need to be distinguished from, societal rights, and they are to be viewed as social claims upon social power arrangements. In advancing our perspective, special attention is given to the place of organizations in human rights theorizing; at the same time, we delineate some of the highly contested aspects of the endeavor to institutionalize a set of human rights principles.
