It’s that time of year again! AEJMC is just around the corner. This year, I’ll be traveling to Montreal for the conference.
I am presenting two research papers on behalf of my colleagues. They are both scholar-to-scholar sessions and happen to be scheduled at the exact same time, 3:30-5pm Friday afternoon. So I will be running back and forth between posters. 🙂 Stop by and say hello. (note, my name is misspelled as Kusin in the online proceedings for the first paper)
The papers are two great studies related to new media (e.g., video games, social media, mobile, traditional online) and political participation:
- Dalisay, F., Kushin, M.J., Yamamoto, M. (August, 2014). The politically demoblizing and disaffecting potential of conflict avoidance: Online political participation, cynicism, apathy, and skepticism.
- Dalisay, F., Kushin, M., Kim, J., Somera, L., & Forbes, A. (August, 2014). Immersion in video games, creative self-efficacy, and political participation.
I won’t have mobile service outside of the U.S.. But I plan on taking advantage of the free wi-fi in the conference area. So posts and updates may be limited to my time in the conference area.
There are a lot of great panels I am hoping to attend. And, as always, there are more great things on the agenda than there is time to do them all. I hope to see everyone there! Safe travels!
