  • Summer Travel & Research Awards — Institute for Social Sciences
    from the Berkeley Police Department which was at the forefront of efforts to professionalize police departments in this period August Vollmer chief of the Berkeley Police argued that policemen should function as social workers not just crime fighters a view that challenged the prevailing working class masculinities of policemen and also provided opportunities for women to enter police departments I also spent time locating various buildings constructed by women s clubs These clubs played an important role in shaping the urban built environment of the East Bay Jessica Ordaz This past summer Jessica Ordaz a PhD Candidate in the History Department got the opportunity to travel to Mexico City with financial assistance from the UC Davis Institute for Social Sciences She conducted primary source dissertation research at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs an archive that holds government correspondence between the United States and Mexico Jessica s dissertation Making Invisible Carceral Spaces Visible Migration State Violence and Activism at the El Centro Immigration Detention Center 1947 2014 historicizes the development of Americas modern immigration system and the prioritization of immigrant detention by centering the experiences and protests of detained noncitizens She analyzes the history of immigrant detention centers by examining transformations inside the El Centro INS facility a camp built in the Imperial Valley of California in 1947 to hold immigrants crossing the U S Mexico border The research that Jessica collected in Mexico City will help her frame the dissertation in a transnational lens She found significant sources such as complaint files written by detainees and the families of detainees and addressed to Mexican consulates These sources will allow Jessica to explore how noncitizens have historically sought to work with immigrant rights activists to influence immigrant detention policy History Summer Travel Research Awards were also presented to Jessica Blake who traveled to New Orleans Justin Clement New York Andrew Higgins Los Angeles Lily Hodges Haiti Nick Perrone Boston Stacy Roberts Kentucky and Pablo Silva Mexico City Linguistics Miranda Morris and Ying Liu a ttended the 2015 Linguistics Summer Institute on Linguistics Theory in a World of Big Data at the University of Chicago on July 6 31 Philosophy Shawn Miller The Institute for Social Sciences summer travel funds enabled me to attend the week long conference of the International Society for the History Philosophy and Social Studies of Biology ISHPSSB in Montreal where I presented dissertation research on a panel on causality conservation and citizen science My research focuses on the intersection of computer hardware and simulation sciences and my talk at ISHPSSB looked in particular at the distributed computing project Folding Home The interdisciplinary and experimental character of ISHPSSB provided an ideal forum to present my work in a somewhat non standard way by running a Folding Home simulation during my talk in lieu of a stack of slides Besides that I met two historians in my session who investigate the role of aquariums in species conservation an area of research of which I was previously wholly unaware Those are the sorts of fruitful discoveries that are only likely to happen by traveling to far flung destinations Philosophy Summer Travel Research Awards were also presented to Chris Healow who attended the SEP International Workshop in Paris France Michael Hunter British Philosophy Association Conference in London England and J Rick Morris Northwest Student Philosophy Conference in Bellingham Washington ISHPSSB in Montreal Canada EPSA Germany Political Science Political Science Summer Travel Research Awards were presented in the form of Summer Collaboratives comprising support for collaborative research with a department faculty member Summer Collaboratives were awarded to Michael Nash Fan Lu Nathan Rexford and Marisella Rodriguez The largest award went to Roi Zur With his faculty collaborator James Adams Roi is currently conducting a study of how German citizens infer parties policy positions and also how these perceptions in turn influence citizens own policy views and party support in response to the composition of state level coalition governments which are a feature of the German federal system Psychology Liv Hoversten To function in a single target language bilinguals need to attend to the target language while ignoring or inhibiting potentially active nontarget language representations Previous research has shown that language membership information is available early enough during lexico semantic processing that it can serve to restrict the depth of processing in a nontarget language It is unclear however how language membership information accumulates upon stimulus presentation The present experiment which benefited from ISS support aimed to investigate the role of sublexical form information in language membership identification Bilinguals viewed Spanish and English words and pseudowords with an orthographic bias toward one language or the other during electroencephalogram recording The probability of encountering words in each language was manipulated in an oddball paradigm in which participants only responded to real words in the rare language category In half of the experiment words had an orthographic bias consistent with language membership Bias blocks and in the other half of the experiment words were not orthographically biased Non Bias blocks Words in the rare language category elicited a typical oddball P3 in both Bias and Non Bias blocks Pseudowords resembling the rare language category also elicited a P3 in the Bias blocks only Finally lateralized readiness potentials for words in the rare language category began significantly earlier in Bias than Non Bias blocks These results suggest that the bilingual brain is sensitive to orthographic bias information even in the absence of lexical information and that orthographic bias aids in language membership identification during bilingual word recognition Rebecca Larke I was given 500 to support a series of experiments looking at the epigenetic effects of developmental antidepressant exposure in prairie voles The funding helped to cover the costs of assays which measure methylation levels of the oxytocin receptor gene in blood and of oxytocin receptor gene expression in several brain areas The results from these experiments should help to explain the link between early antidepressant exposure and changes in behavior and neural oxytocin receptors found in
