1. Jong, Jung-Whan de. Gender and sexuality in Dutch, British, and US politicial debates on multiculturalism, Islam, and Muslims between 1999 and 2006.

Degree: PhD, Sociology, 2009, University of Southern California

This dissertation explores how Dutch, British, and US political parties used gender and sexuality in discussions about Muslims, Islam, and cultural diversity in party brochures, pamphlets, and platforms between 1999 and 2006. Differences in parties’ use of gender and sexuality can be explained by looking at the way in which they constructed national identity and their attitude towards cultural diversity. In the Netherlands, sexuality (particularly LGBT rights) and gender (women’s equality) were used to emphasize the importance of inburgering (integration) of Muslims. Both were considered part of Dutch norms and values  – the ‘intolerance of intolerance’  – and, through this inclusion, the Dutch national identity. British and US parties excluded gender and, especially, sexuality from their construction of national identity. They also seldom engaged in discussions about Islam and Muslims. In the few instances that they did, only a handful of parties linked these discussions to sexuality or gender. Furthermore, I examine how gender and sexuality contributed to the racialization of Muslims and Islam in the Netherlands. Political parties portrayed Muslims as a homogenous racial group whose religious beliefs and cultural practices were incompatible with those prevalent in mainstream society. It is through discussions about the social presence of Muslims and Islam that gender and sexuality played important roles in their racialization. This dissertation adds to the body of work in political sociology, which lacks a focus on gender and sexuality. Both, however, play important roles in politics, the establishment of political institutions, multiculturalism, and the construction of nationalism. It also contributes to the sociology of race. Research on race misses concrete discussions of the way in which it intersects with religion, nationalism, gender, and sexuality.

2. Hoskins, Bruce Calvin. "What is black, white and yellow all over?" an analysis of the racial experiences of people of Asian/white and Asian/black heritage.

Degree: PhD, Sociology, 2007, University of Southern California

It has been argued that the increase of people of multiracial heritage in our society represents the fulfillment of the assimilation process. People of Asian/white and Asian/black heritage have been singled out in multiple works as posing a direct challenge to how race is understood in the United States and that this group's assertion of their multiracial identity will ultimately lead to a raceless society (Williams-Leon and Nakashima 2001; Root 1996; Hollinger 1995; Root 1992). Therefore, this research uses in-depth interviews of thirty-two (32) people of Asian/white and Asian/black heritage and six (6) sets of interracial Asian and white and Asian and black parents to critically analyze to what degree their lived experiences are consistent with a society that has assimilated people of different racial categories.; In order to determine levels of assimilation for these groups, this research will use a racial formations framework to examine how racial categories are constructed through "racial logic" and how race is given meaning within the lives of multiracial people and through parents of multiracial children. This will be done by showing situations where society will ascribe a race onto a person of multiracial heritage, how the person of multiracial heritage will use their "biology" to support or refute these claims, and how that same multiracial person might develop a racial identity that may or may not be consistent with how they look or their actual racial heritage.; Demonstrating how race is socially constructed will reveal how being mixed with white is fundamentally different than being mixed with black. This will be shown by demonstrating that Asian/white people have more identity options than Asian/black people, how families socially enforce to their children which races are considered acceptable marriage partners, and how society uses a universal anti-black context to discriminate against people of Asian/black heritage.
