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. Anderson, Megan Jean. Academic service-learning’s impact on students’ social capital.

Degree: MA, Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology, 2014, Eastern Michigan University

This study examines whether there is a relationship between social capital and participation in academic service-learning courses within higher education. Through designing, implementing, and analyzing a survey which was given to students enrolled in courses with an academic service-learning component at Eastern Michigan University (n=127), the role between these two variables was tested. Social capital was measured through the total number of relationships formed at participants’ academic service learning site, whether these relationships were strong or weak ties; the frequency of interaction with said ties; and individuals who could be used as a reference. Results suggest the number of individuals with whom participants worked and whether participants were partaking in academic service-learning for the first time positively impacted social capital. Furthermore, the type of service, as well as frequency of interaction between participants and individuals at their site, had an impact on the strength of participants’ ties. Similarly, frequency of interaction with one’s supervisor positively impacted the total number of individuals participants felt comfortable asking for a reference. It was also found that whether participants partook in academic service learning as part of an education course or a non-education course played a role in participants’ social capital.
