    Abstract:

    An estimated 103,000 undocumented immigrants reside in Indiana, the vast majority of whom have no pathway to obtain legal authorization to drive. This restriction makes life significantly harder for undocumented residents, who must constantly weigh the universal need to drive against the risk of a traffic infraction or accident leading to a citation for driving without a license. But such a restrictive licensing regime is also detrimental to all legal residents of Indiana, who pay the price o…

    Abstract:

    In order to ensure that the University of Notre Dame supports its employees with fair wage policies in the future, the Raising the Standard Campaign proposes that the University of Notre Dame adopt the following policies: increase student wages to $15 per hour, institute a cost of living adjustment (COLA) for all Notre Dame workers, create a Notre Dame Just Wages and Fair Employment Board, enhance educational benefits, revisit retirement benefits, celebrate employee appreciation week, and imp…

    Abstract:

    The empirical study of dispositional humility as a facet of personality and of intellectual humility as an intellectual virtue has increased dramatically in just the last decade. This paper reviews the conceptualization of these constructs as well as the many assessment strategies designed to measure them. With particular focus on the practice of science and the collaborative work of labs, I conclude with the suggestion that the individualism of traditional virtue concepts elides the importan…

    Abstract:

    From Introduction: “In early-to-mid 19th century America, slave plantation labor was prevalent in the South, while wage labor centered around cities and factories was becoming more common in the North. Robert William Fogel, in his chapter “American Slavery: A flexible, highly developed form of capitalism,” refutes the common conception that the antebellum South had outdated economic and social systems, and instead argues that American slavery was a highly modernized system of capitalism …

    Abstract:

    From Introduction: “American author Robert Coover’s “The Babysitter” has fallen victim to the assumption of a fantasy piece since the 1969 publication of his short story collection Pricksongs & Descants. The short story bounces between narratives displaying intense metapsychosis and simultaneously tells the jumbled yet distinct tale of a connected array of people. The complex plotlines varyingly cross, stay completely unconnected, and at times contradict each other, walking the fine …

    Abstract:

    From climate change to toxic pollution and the interactive effects of multiple pollution streams, human health is under siege. Human-produced environmental risks to health and wellbeing are massive and contributing to patterns of global morbidity, mortality, economic inequality, displacement, and insecurity. The implications of human-produced environmental harms to global health are complex just as are their causes. The concept of environmental violence (EV) offers a potentially robust frame …

    Abstract:

    Background: Hope has been a topic of interest across many centuries and among diverse cultures, gaining particular relevance in crisis and change-seeking times. Research has shown that hope plays an important role in both the context of everyday life as well as in the context of illness. This paper presents an integrative theory of hope, which incorporates uncertainty and control as key drivers of the hope process and also includes appraisal and meaning. Discussion: The new hope theory state…

    Abstract:

    This longitudinal study examined relations between the physical quality of housing, neighborhood, and their interactive effect on the life course development of 341 U.S. rural children from ages 9–24 years. Standardized instruments assessed housing quality (structural, clutter/cleanliness, indoor climate, hazards, crowding/privacy) and neighborhood quality (street connectivity, density, land use mix; proximate building/sidewalk conditions; neighborhood stability; proximity to nature/amenities…

    Abstract:

    Although sociodemographic factors are one aspect of understanding the effects of neighborhood environments on health, equating neighborhood quality with socioeconomic status ignores the important role of physical neighborhood attributes. Prior work on neighborhood environments and health has relied primarily on level of socioeconomic disadvantage as the indicator of neighborhood quality without attention to physical neighborhood quality. A small but increasing number of studies have assessed …

    Abstract:

    Pain catastrophizing is among the strongest predictors of pain intensity. This study examined the role of the nearby natural environment in the experience of pain among community-dwelling adults with chronic pain (N=81) living in New York City and explored the notion that attention may underlie nature’s effect. Nearby nature was objectively measured using satellite data. Daily diary data across 14 days was employed to operationalize pain catastrophizing (and subscales: rumination, helplessnes…

    Abstract:

    Chronic crowding within housing adversely affects psychological well-being, yet little is known about how design attributes contribute to these effects, especially among children. This cross-sectional study first examined associations between residential interior density and children’s (M = 9 years of age) perceived bedroom and home crowding. Second, analyses investigated whether interior design attributes (residential floor plan arrangement measured by space syntax [depth and permeability]; …

    Abstract:

    Although the benefits of nature exposure to human health are well documented, less is known about the psychological benefits of exposure to nature indoors. This study observed whether the addition of greenery to a workplace setting improved psychological well-being and performance of employees. A crossover study among 63 adults examined perceived psychological well-being and objective memory task performance with and without indoor greenery present in an open workplace setting. Statistical an…
