Abstract: In this paper, I am going to explore how gender stereotype shaped barriers and opportunities for Geun-hye Park’s successful presidential campaign in 2012. The late authoritarian leader’s daughter being the first woman president in South Korea drew domestic and international attention as well as raised concerns over the future of democracy in the relatively recently industrialized and democratized country.
Following a framework presented in Cracking the Highest Glass Ceiling edited by Rainbow Murray (2010), I am going to examine the gendered media coverage of Park in Presidential Election in terms of gender stereotypes, media framing, double binds, and external factors. I am going to conduct content analyses of the way five major newspapers in South Korea across the ideological spectrum framed the first woman presidential candidate for four months during her bid for the office, from the day she won the candidacy of Saenuri Party to Election Day. Through this study, I will assess how useful the existing theories and frameworks on women running for top national executive offices in explaining the role of gender in the recent presidential election in South Korea.

Abstract: Childbearing is a decision for most people in low fertility contexts. The vast majority of Europeans intend to have two children, but many fall short of their childbearing intentions. Why do many people stop at one, rather than have another? We find that in a context where new parents have little experience with babies, the transition to parenthood is a critical phase for whether they go on to have a second birth. A drop in parental subjective well-being surrounding first birth is strongly and negatively associated with progression to second birth in Germany. Parents’ experience with a previous birth is an important and understudied factor in determining completed family size. Policymakers interested in increasing the proportion of couples having a second birth should pay attention to factors that influence the well-being of new parents.

Abstract: Research shows that the transition to post-secondary education is often fraught with academic, social, and cultural challenges for much of the student population (Clark, 2005; Terenzini et al., 1994; Upcraft, Gardner, & Barefoot, 2005). Students in transition experience changes in instruction, learning, and teacher expectations; new demands on time and effort for studying; fluctuations in self-efficacy; and variations in definitions of success (Clark, 2005). This study utilizes evocative autoethnography (Ellis & Bochner, 2006) to retrospectively explore the author’s experiences of learning, success, and failure during her first year of university. This autoethnography is then examined alongside a qualitative research study on current gifted students’ first year experiences. Examining lived experiences using autoethnographic methods “with the intent of understanding self and its connection to others” (Chang, 2008) within a sociocultural context helps shed light on the first year experience and the challenges inherent in that transition for gifted or high-ability students.

Abstract: This paper focuses on two sets of images produced during the same series of events in June 1901. At the time Japanese photographers and architects took advantage of the Qing court’s exile to trespass upon the Forbidden City. The uninvited visitors combed through the complex and photographed nearly every corner, eventually producing a two-volume portfolio published under the auspices of the Imperial Museum of Tokyo. As the first comprehensive collection of Forbidden City photographs ever available, the volumes received immediate acclaim both in Japan and abroad.

What is less known to the public is that there is another set of images produced by the same group of researchers: the hand-drawn illustrations rendered solely for personal remembrance of the first visit to China. The difference between public photographs and personal portrayals was enormous, for through the individual depictions, the Qing regal complex no longer conveyed enduring imperial grandeur, but was instead a group of crumbling edifices.

Intrigued by the stark contrast between these two sets of images, I propose in this paper to utilize visual evidence as the means to bring out late Meiji polemical views about China. During the crucial moment when China’s fate was still undecided and its capital was occupied by foreigners, visual disparity between public and personal renditions of the Forbidden City vividly captured the Japanese ambivalence: would China remain the locale of their historical precedents or was it merely a dying land full of relics from the past?

Abstract: Retrospective case studies explored language maintenance and shift in one German immigrant family. The analysis of this multi-perspective narrative suggests a subtractive language learning environment may not always result in subtractive bilingualism. In addition to discussing the L1 as a dynamic feature, we look at implications for policy and instruction.
