The teaching profession is one of the largest women-dominated employment niches in many national contexts, yet the gender, work and family negotiations within this profession have been understudied. The case study of South Korean teachers, one of the most highly qualified teaching workforces in the world, illuminates how particular professions create specific challenges as well as supports for work and family that can counter national patterns of women’s low labor force participation. This study moves beyond the dominant theoretical debates regarding “work-family conflict” and “work-life balance” to develop the framework of “work-family alignment.” This framework incorporates cultural, ideological and functional dimensions and builds on scholarly and public debates relevant to South Korea and other Asian countries. Finally, it offers recommendations for how to support women’s efforts to negotiate work and family, and what lessons can be drawn for other professional and national settings.

★ 英文摘要： Multiplicative interaction models are widely used in social science to examine whether the relationship between an outcome and an independent variable changes with a moderating variable. Current empirical practice tends to overlook two important problems. First, these models assume a linear interaction effect that changes at a constant rate with the moderator. Second, estimates of the conditional effects of the independent variable can be misleading if there is a lack of common support of the moderator. Replicating 46 interaction effects from 22 recent publications in five top political science journals, we find that these core assumptions often fail in practice, suggesting that a large portion of findings across all political science subfields based on interaction models are modeling artifacts or are at best highly model dependent. We propose a checklist of simple diagnostics to assess the validity of these assumptions and offer flexible estimation strategies that allow for nonlinear interaction effects and safeguard against excessive extrapolation. These statistical routines are available in both R and STATA

In this paper, we investigate the dynamic link between recessions and stock market liquidity by examining the predictive content of illiquidity for US recessions. After controlling for other commonly featured recession predictors such as term spreads and credit spreads, we find that the illiquidity measure proposed by Amihud (2002) has strong power in predicting recessions. Moreover, the predictability of the illiquidity measure of small firms is found to be stronger than that of large firms, which supports the hypothesis of "flight to liquidity.''
