1. Ranusch, Allison Amadea. Fitting in: A study of lesbian mothers in rural southeastern Michigan.

Degree: MA, Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology, 2015, Eastern Michigan University

Lesbian parents residing in rural and small communities have received little scholarly attention. The primary focus of the existing research has highlighted the isolation experienced by lesbian parents within such locations, but little examination has been made of other issues or their coping mechanisms. This study was designed to address these deficits in knowledge and understanding through a series of eleven in-depth, qualitative interviews. Several stigma management strategies were discovered. For example, it was reported that engaging in farming and trade helped lesbian mothers "fit in" enough to gain some level of acceptance from their immediate neighbors. Stigma was also managed by being "model citizens" and by attempts to educate the community on LGBT issues. While participants saw some small progress using these strategies, at the same time, they also disclosed experiences with harassment, being made to feel uncomfortable, and being the victims of crimes. Advisors/Committee Members: Denise Reiling, Ph.D, Chair, Tricia McTague, Ph.D..

2. Jendry, Allison. Reflections on the way we were raised: Socialization within a same-sex family.

Degree: MA, Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology, 2015, Eastern Michigan University

Previous research on same-sex couples with children acknowledges that their parenting issues are similar to and yet different from their heterosexual counterparts. The literature does not examine, in an in-depth fashion, the challenges that same-sex parents face and how such challenges affect the lives of their families and relationships. This research examines the extent that same-sex parents reflect "traditional" family norms and behaviors, and how they socialize their children within the debate surrounding same-sex relationships. The author conducted and analyzed in-depth qualitative interviews from seven same-sex couples with children under the age of eighteen in the Southeastern Michigan area. It was found that there were a number of challenges same-sex parents encountered in the process of raising their children. This research suggests the need of a broader awareness of the challenges encountered by same-sex parents, and the manner that they meet these challenges in a world different from their parents. Advisors/Committee Members: Denise Reiling, Ph.D., Chair, Robert Orrange, Ph.D..

3. Ross, Paula Thompson. African Americans' perspectives on racial solidarity.

Degree: MA, Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology, 2007, Eastern Michigan University

This study explored the fundamental formulations that shape perspectives on racial solidarity among one group of African Americans. The perspectives gained in this study aid in understanding the existence, origin, and views toward the concept. In-depth, qualitative interviews were conducted with individuals from two generational cohorts: ages 18 to 30 (post-Civil Rights era) and ages 50 and older (Civil Rights era). This study describes a process by which racial solidarity appears to have diminished among some African Americans. This transition seems to have occurred as a result of the deterioration of the traditional African American community, the acceptance of externally imposed beliefs about the racial group, and in-group sabotaging behaviors that create numerous problems within the younger generation. Reports from participants within the post-Civil Rights generational cohort provide some insight into the magnitude of these problems. Strategies African Americans can use to improve racial solidarity are offered. Advisors/Committee Members: Denise Reiling, Ph.D., Chair, Clovis E. Semmes, Ph.D., Kristine J. Ajrouch, Ph.D..
