Congratulations is to be offered as well to Jayeon "Janey" Lee who has accepted a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the Department of Journalism & Communication at Lehigh University. Jayeon's dissertation is focusing on social media and the effects of journalists presenting varied personal and professional attributes in this environment.
Congratulations go out to Steve Kleinman and Andrea Quenette, both of whom have secured positions as assistant professors for next year. Steve will be joining the faculty of Indiana University of Pennsylvania in the Department of Communications Media. Andrea will be joining the faculty of the University of Kansas in the Department of Communication Studies. Steve and Andrea are both working feverishly on completing their dissertations -- Steve on factors affecting willingness to communicate about politics interpersonally, Andrea on the communication and political correlates of political cynicism -- before they move on from OSU and the COPS group. Please join me in congratulating them on their accomplishments thus far!
