Abstract: Human behavior is only partly based on reflective thinking whereas many, especially cognitive less demanding activities may be initiated in a habitual way (e.g., Strack/Deutsch 2004). Since so called conventional political activities require more (not only cognitive) efforts (e.g., long-term obligation) than unconventional or electoral political participation which is mostly less binding and more event-related, it comes to mind that the latter are activated via an "affective" pathway while conventional action probably requires a reflective behavioral system. As political interest orders people's impulses (e.g., Herbart 1806) it should be a powerful predictor of unconventional and electoral political activity. For conventional participation, however, reflection and thus (subjective) political competence (i.e., internal political efficacy) might be necessary, possibly supplemented by political interest. This assumption is followed using an online panel sample of Turkish migrants in Germany, comparing it with a non-migrant sample. Therefore, multiple regression analyses are used and complemented by multivariate analyses employing more complex path models. For the migrant sample, results point to the overwhelming importance of political interest in the prediction of legal political activity. In regard to conventional political activity, both variables of cognitive politicization have only indirect effects that are mediated via readiness to participate in conventional political action. For non-migrants, however, readiness to participate has no predictive relevance. Adding to that, here subjective political competence seems to be of more predictive value than political interest. These (differing) patterns are confronted with each other, focusing on the importance of political action and societal integration of migrants.

Abstract: Human behavior is only partly based on reflective thinking whereas many activities might be initiated habitually. Since “conventional” political activities require more efforts than unconventional or electoral political participation, the latter might be activated via an “affective” pathway represented by political interest (Hypothesis I). In contrast, conventional action probably requires a reflective behavioral system. Subjective political competence (i.e., internal political efficacy) is thus hypothesized to be a necessary precondition to initiate conventional participation (Hypothesis II), possibly supplemented by political interest. Both assumptions are followed using an online panel sample of Turkish migrants in Germany, comparing it with non-migrants. Therefore, multiple regression analyses are used and complemented with complex path models and qualitative interviews. Regarding the Turkish migrants, first results support Hypothesis I and indicate the importance of political interest in predicting legal political activity (voting, conventional, and unconventional action). With regard to conventional action, preliminary analyses show partial evidence for Hypothesis II: both variables of cognitive politicization have indirect effects being mediated via readiness to participate in conventional political action. In contrast, for non-migrants subjective political competence seems to be of more predictive value than political interest. Yet there is limited evidence with regard to both hypotheses in the comparison sample. These differing patterns are going to be examined in more detail using a large sample from the German Longitudinal Election Study to discussing the importance of political action and societal integration of migrants.

3. Schoolman, Morton. "Possible Politics: Politics of the Image vs. Politics of Narrative Structure" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the APSA Annual Meeting & Exhibition, TBA, San Francisco, CA, <Not Available>. 2018-06-21 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1243715_index.html>

Abstract: Political theorists should break with a long-standing practice of those writing about the politics of film, namely understanding the politics of film through interpretations confined to their narrative structures. This approach privileges narrative to the neglect of legitimate political possibilities belonging to the images of which a film's narrative consists or interprets the politics of images in terms of the overriding political meaning of film narrative. Images often challenge politics attributed to a film's narrative structure, whereas narratology buries the politics of the image beneath the politics of the film narrative. But it is also to be recognized that the image owes its existence to the narrative structure of film. What is thus required is that our recovery of the politics of the image in film account for two things. On the one hand, for the political work the image performs independently of a film's narrative and, on the other, for the work the narrative and the image perform together. It is not simply a matter, in other words, of showing the politics of the image to be at odds with the politics of a film's narrative. Only by showing the image to be potentially at odds while also continuous with the film narrative to which it generically belongs can we appreciate how the image represents a possible politics emerging within though also against film’s narrative structure.

Abstract: Certain trends in feminist theory have made it increasingly difficult to respond to questions about the interests of gender in politically adequate ways. Despite assertions to the contrary, the dominance of post-structuralist paradigms in contemporary feminist theory has constrained feminists' ability to develop robust theories of politics, stalemated feminist efforts to intervene responsibly in the face of current political challenges, and stymied critical feminist engagement in contemporary debates, both inside the academy and in the wider world in which the academy exists. In this essay, we defend the necessity to continue to engage in generalization and theory-building, and reject the claim that every analytical category is necessarily essentialist. We call for a reconceptualization of politics, which links systemic analysis of institutions to critical attention to narrative practices. In other words, we invite further theoretical and empirical work elaborating, in detail, the particular structures and dynamics creating and sustaining any network of power/discourse within which processes of linguistic resignification and political representation always occur. We argue that reconnecting linguistic accounts of discursive power to systemic accounts of institutional power can produce rich political analyses of the concrete conditions and capacities both to sustain and change a given gender system and should include analysis of the spatial (institutional structures and places) and temporal (historical), as well as discursive (ideological, linguistic) conditions and capacities through which individuals and groups enact deeds (actions) that both reproduce and subvert a social order.

Abstract: Some political philosophers argue that Shakespeare?s historical plays can be a "recognized source for the serious study of moral and political problems" and a setting for "philosophic reflection.
