    A tale of two tactics : Palestinian uses of violent and nonviolent action during the intifadas by Datz, Candace

    Palestinian uses of violent and nonviolent tactics are varied and diverse. Using Chenoweth and Stephan's quantitative and qualitative work on nonviolent versus violent movements, I show that when the Palestinians utilized nonviolent means against the Israeli occupation during the first intifada they was reasonably successful in gaining Israeli concessions. This is contrasted with the use of violent means during the second intifada, which caused harsh repression and sanctions from the Israelis. I conclude that if Palestinians desire to once again rise up against the occupation, they should do so through nonviolent means so as to have a higher probability of success.

    Coercive Control and Physical Violence: College Students Reporting of Intimate Partner Violence by Morgan, Bryn

    This exploratory study seeks to understand the prevalence and types of intimate partner violence among college students. Using an expanded understanding of Johnson’s typology (2008) of intimate partner violence, which differentiates between types of intimate partner violence based on the use of coercive control and physical violence, this study investigates intimate partner violence in a sample of college students at a small liberal arts school, suggesting that non-physical violence must also be understood as intimate partner violence, especially among college students. It attempts to contribute to the feminist understanding of intimate partner violence, noting that women experience certain types of abuse at higher rates than men and within different contexts. Using a general survey sample, however, the results found no difference between men and women reporting intimate partner violence. This apparent gender symmetry, contradicts past feminist research, suggests that new methodological approaches must be developed in order to effectively study intimate partner violence.
