Congratulations to Teresa Myers for "Twenty years of public opinion about global warming" just accepted for publication in Public Opinion Quarterly. This paper was a collaborative effort between Teresa and American University professor Matthew Nisbet. Pieces such as this that track public opinion over decades tend to be well received and highly cited. This paper illustrates what our students are capable of right out of the starting gate (Teresa was a first year M.A. student when this paper was first drafted) and what can be accomplished when you immerse yourself in the kind of research culture that is OSU and COPS.

She has already joined the COPS blog, but I wanted to give a formal welcome to Laurel Gleason as a new PhD student in the School of Communication starting in Autumn 2007. Laurel is the first of what I expect to be several students who choose OSU for graduate study. Laurel's interests lie in how individuals construct political meaning out of the information and cues the media disseminates, and how such constructed meaning relates to political engagment. Please welcome Laurel, and look here for future announcements as we receive commitments from students who will be joining us next year.

In addition to the paper by Lindsay Hoffman and Tiffany Thomson on the top student paper session in the Mass Communication division at the ICA conference in San Francisco in May, I have just learned that Myiah Hively will be presenting a co-authored paper in the top faculty paper session in the Mass Communication division. Having COPS students involved in both the top student and top faculty paper sessions in Mass Communication should be no surprise, given that School of Communication at OSU has recently been ranked in the top three programs in the country in Mass Communication. Congratulations Myiah!
