April, 2022 Communication Theory

New scholarship led by PhD candidate Adam J. Mason looks at how we study and understand relational maintenance in new channels. The process of staying friends is old; but how we do that has changed alongside the rise of social media and other digital tools. Mason and Carr (2022) looks at how we can use and tweak established theories of offline relational maintance to effectively theorize and study the process even in new channels. Rather than inventing new theories, sometimes small tweaks to extant ideas can take us a long way!

 

April, 2022 Journal of Popular Culture Studies

Comics are increasingly known by their crossovers and team-ups. But what makes for effective team players in a universe of Celestials and Omega-mutants? This social network analysis of team structures in the Marvel Comic Universe reveals some interesting insights into the thousands of collaborations that have occurred in its panels, and identifies (and explains) some of the unlikely superheros (and supervillians) who have teamed up the most. Make mine Marvel!

 

November, 2021 Journal of Media Psychology

We finally have a theory of identity shift! This amazing, multi-institutional collaboration with Yeweon Kim, Jacob Valov, Dr. Judith Rosenbaum, Dr. Benjamin Johnson, Dr. Jeff Hancock, and Dr. Amy Gonzales explicates a theory of a construct I've liked working with since Amy and Jeff put it forward:identity shift. Our newly-articulated theory draws on empirical findings to create a theory of how mediated selective self-presentation results in self-transformation.
