I’ve been rather delinquent in updating here, but I do have a bunch of work that I’m excited to share. (If you don’t have access to something, just let me know – I’m always happy to help out!)
“The limits of official statistics” is out in Public Anthropologies, which is American Anthropologist‘s peer-reviewed blog. I got to play with genre – and it’s one of my favorite pieces of my own writing.
A team of folks from Knology (where I work) and PBS NewsHour co-authored “Better news about math” for Numeracy. We lay out a research agenda for understanding the relationship between news and quantitative reasoning – and we’re biting off that research a little at a time, so keep an eye out for more.
Some work-in-progress from that project is available on the Knology website as an irregular series about Numbers in the News.
I’ve gotten to work with wonderful colleagues on methods papers that bring together various linguistic and discourse methods with survey research.
Josh Raclaw, Abby Bajuniemi, and I have an article in Discourse, Context, & Media arguing that online surveys are themselves interactions. We look at turn construction in open-ended items and some other fun stuff like that.
John Voiklis, Darcey Glasser, John Fraser, and I have an article in Journal of Pragmatics where we look at self-reference practices in survey responses about the relevance of a number of news pieces.
The encyclopedia chapter on hedge words that Alex D’Arcy and I co-wrote in … *checks calendar* 2017 … is finally available.
