Positionality and Police
Our group's goal is  to reconcile the current social political climate, with the systemic and  institutionalized injustices that have been perpetrated by the criminal  justice system. To do this, we collaborated with Bucknell's Public Safety,  and did an experiment with a positionally survey on some of the officers in  the department. We wanted to use the information we collected to both expose  the lack of awareness of positionally in law enforcement, and also make the  officers we surveyed aware of the importance of self-reflection. We will  present our findings, as well as personal comments on associations between  the current political climate and said findings to a group.

Turkey: The Hijab and its place in Secularism
A prevailing view amongst many Western feminists is the belief that the hijab is a symbol of oppression and must be done away with as a step towards furthering female autonomy.  Such feminists might, thus, view Turkey as a utopia with its liberal-minded, predominantly Muslim population. With a strong emphasis on embracing Western secularism and the realization of Islam as an assault against democracy, Turkey’s efforts to dissociate religion from the state have been relentless. Highlighting the controversial Kavakçi case, this project hones in  on the intersection of government authority, individual liberties, and feminism.

Support for the Anti-Apartheid Movement on U.S. College Campuses
My research project  will be analyzing the actions that the U.S. took to go against the National  Party's Apartheid, more specifically college students across the nation who  were in support of the Anti-Apartheid movement. Many college students and  professors organized rallies, demonstrations, and other forms of protest to  go against the policies that the U.S. government placed that supported the  National Party.

Drafting Emergency Protocols for People with Disabilities at Bucknell University
    Students with  disabilities overcome many challenges every day that those without  disabilities do not see. One such challenge is the effort to reach  classrooms, lectures, meals, and practices. Though Bucknell has made a  commitment to physical accessibility, one area that the University needs  improvement in is emergency accommodations for members of the Bucknell  community that live with disabilities. The University lacks a procedural  protocol for emergency situations for people with disabilities; this project  aims to implement such a plan in Bucknell’s upcoming emergency procedures  publication. The authors perform research on other universities’ emergency  protocols for people with disabilities, work in combination with the Office  of Accessibility Resources and the Office of Public Safety and the General  Counsel to understand considerations for drafting a new plan, and then submit  a draft emergency protocol for people with disabilities to the Office of  Accessibility Resources and the General Counsel. The draft’s exact usage is  yet to be determined, though it is expected that the plan will be folded into  the Office of Public Safety’s preexisting University-wide policy that is  expected to be implemented following its approval from the General Counsel.

African American evasion of the draft in the form of civil disobedience.
In this project, I  will be examining the reasons behind some African Americans evading the draft  into the Vietnam war. I will then be able to conclude whether their form of  civil disobedience should be valued and praised in today's society.

Podcast Episode 1: Hijab and Oppression
In today's society  and for generations, race and discrimination to minorities has been a crisis  and extremely controversial. Oppression and discrimination towards women of  Islam has dramatically grown after the 9/11 attacks. The hijab worn by Muslim  women is a symbol that is linked to both gender and to religion. This project  is aimed at exploring the arguments and reasoning behind the ideas that make  the discrimination and oppression to these women and the Muslim community,  which influence how society views these individuals especially after the  terror attacks of 9/11.

Supporting American Identities: One Hijab at a Time
The concept of the American identity is commonly used as a tool to justify racial discrimination. Specifically, people denounce Muslim women who wear the hijab as anti-western threats to our modern society. In order to combat this idea, one must examine what it means to be a modern Muslim women in America and how the expression of religious traditions actually represents a reformed American culture by supporting religious tolerance and differences. Through the individual examination of personal reasons behind wearing the hijab, this project supports the idea that the American identity is actually made up of multiple identities.

Civil Disobedience of Black Lives Matter
BLM is often considered to be a radical group rather than a civil rights group trying to obtain basic rights, such as the right to life, for black people. Their demonstrations are often called violent, riotous, and unnecessary. However, I disagree. I'll be exploring the extent to which the actions of BLM activists should be considered civil disobedience.
