Title of Research:
"Citizens' Argument Repertoire and Media Discourse"

January 12, 2006

I have further developed my dissertation research project, and it is now titled "Citizens' Argument Repertoire and Media Discourse." My dissertation proposal has been approved. I completed the data collection and the data analysis. Currently I am in the midst of the write-up and expect to complete it this year. My future plans are to pursue an academic career in a research university in the field of political communication.

In the summer of 2005 I was selected to participate in the National Communication Association's Doctoral Honors Seminar, hosted by the Department of Communication at the University of Oklahoma. The 3-day seminar included in-depth discussions of my research with top scholars from the field of political communication. Participating doctoral students were competitively selected. My research won the "Top Paper Award" in the Mass Communication Theory and Research division of this seminar.

In October 2005, I was selected to present my dissertation research in the annual open house of the department of Communication at the University of Washington, as a representative of the department's graduate students.
