Abstract: Several years ago the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) announced a “Plan for Transformation” which included the relocation of all public housing residents over a ten-year period. The MacArthur Foundation is funding research to help the CHA improve the relocation process; NORC is collecting data from public housing residents to inform relocation improvements.

During the planning phase of the project various groups interested in the improvement process talked about both the benefits and drawbacks of using public housing residents to collect these data. Those in-favor of using public housing residents to collect the data argued that public housing residents are more comfortable talking to other public housing residents and more likely to honestly disclose their experiences. Those not-in-favor of using public housing residents as interviewers argued that public housing residents are angry with the CHA and may influence respondents’ answers.

NORC recruited and hired half of the interviewing staff for this project from within the CHA developments. NORC randomly assigned half of the addresses in each building to CHA resident interviewers and the other half to non-CHA resident interviewers. The paper will describe the interviewer recruiting and hiring process, the interviewer training, and the operational strategies employed during data collection. The paper will also examine and compare the data collected by CHA resident interviewers and non-CHA resident interviewers.

Abstract: Previous research shows that low-income, minority, female-headed households have greater difficulty returning to their homes after a disaster like Hurricane Katrina, but it may be that these groups are more likely to be displaced from their pre-disaster homes because they live in rental housing. This research focuses on how housing tenure influences displacement from a pre-Katrina home among a sample of low-income parents in New Orleans. We find that pre-Katrina renters were twice as likely, and renters of publicly subsidized housing were three times as likely, to be living in a new home than were homeowners about a year after the hurricane. After controlling for housing tenure and housing-related variables, participant’s socio-demographic characteristics become insignificant suggesting that housing tenure accounts for much of the vulnerability of these socio-demographic groups. Our study untangles some of the links in the causal chain connecting pre-disaster housing tenure to return to a pre-disaster home. It also contributes to a growing body of sociological literature about the non-financial advantages associated with homeownership and disadvantages associated with renting.

"Building a House in Liberia: Colonial Legacies in Cooper's House at Sugar Beach" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Studies Association Annual Meeting, Puerto Rico Convention Center and the Caribe Hilton., San Juan, Puerto Rico, <Not Available>. 2017-10-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p569930_index.html>
Publication Type: Internal Paper
Abstract: This paper will explore Helene Cooper's memoir, House at Sugar Beach. Cooper's memoir tells the story of her privileged girlhood in Liberia and her escape to the United States following the 1980 coup. While Cooper's is a complicated story filled with nostalgia and longing for a childhood home, this essay will explore the legacies of colonialism that complicate nostalgia and nationalism within an African American and African context. America's first and only attempt at formal colonialism, Liberia's vexed "founding" as a nation built by African American expatriates, this paper will think through whether or not black diaspora theory might be able to reconcile blacks as colonizers and colonial subjects. Moreover, using sexual violence that Cooper's memoir recounts, this paper also explore how diaspora theory might more critically encompass questions of gender and sexual violence.

4. Tucker, Jennifer. "Case Notes to the Crazy House: Social Work Documentation of Older Adults: Transitions to Eloise Poor House and Asylum in Detroit, 1929-1949" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Ninth Annual Congress of Qualitative Inquiry, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois, <Not Available>. 2017-10-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p649342_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Social work historians have increasingly used case notes as primary source data in qualitative research despite challenges related to distortion, documentation errors, and missing data.  Examining archival case records from Depression-Era Detroit through ethnographic and narrative content analysis, this paper discusses the transitions of twenty-one older adults from home-based assistance through the Luella Hannan Memorial Home to residential care at the “Crazy House”—a massive 902-acre complex that constituted the Eloise Poor House, Asylum, and Hospital of Wayne County.  The primary theme to emerge from this research involves the significance of the hospital in the conflict, confusion, and lack of consensus during an older adult’s transition process.  Current implications for social work research, policy, and practice include continuing efforts to change the historically disenfranchised role of both older adults and social workers in medical care teams.

Abstract: When the House Republicans held their majority in 2012, John Boehner became the first speaker in the party’s history to lead a majority for two Congresses without a companion Senate majority, and the ratio of Republican House seats to Senate seats today is at near-record highs. How and why did the GOP become such a House-dominant party on the national level, and what are the implications of this transformation—for national policy in the Obama era, for Congressional Republicans and for the party as a whole? This paper—part of a forthcoming Yale University Press book—asks and answers these questions.
