Friday at NCA 2005

I didn't hit as many sessions today, but the ones I did see were well worth it. First I spent some time with the Symbolic Interactionalists.

"Revisiting the Concept of Touch: Modes in Tactile Communication across Cultures." Kyle Ryan, Western Michigan University

My notes are pretty scattered, more so than yesterday. But either way they are as follows:

Funerals as Parasocial Performance

Over the One-China Policy: The Negotiation of Direct Flights between China and Taiwan

Revisiting the Concept of Touch: Modes in Tactile Communication across Cultures


It's probably no big surprise that semiotics fascinates me. I think Wilma is right, it is at the core of much of what I do. I just wish I understood it better, I have not yet had that defining moment when I can see the matrix. Panels like this make me aware of two things 1) I need so much more philosophy under my belt, and 2) it will take years of thought to gain a grasp on the topic.

SEMIOTICS AND COMMUNICATION DIVISION: TOP PAPERS
Sponsor: Semiotics and Communication Division
Chair: Corey Anton, Grand Valley State University

"Embodiment in the Semiotic Phenomenological Matrix of Discourse." Isaac E. Catt, Millersville University

Embodiment in the Semiotic Phenomenological Matrix of Discourse

This evening there was a panel devoted to youth and media, of course I had to attend that one. Especially since Susannah Stern was presenting. I think Susannah and I do very similar work from a developmental perspective. I should note that one of the great things about this panel was that each was based in a developmental perspective...yah baby.

MASS MEDIA AND IDENTITY DEVELOPMENT IN YOUTH: MENTAL, EMOTIONAL, AND PHYSICAL HEALTH CONSEQUENCES
Sponsor: Mass Communication Division
Chair: Kristen S. Harrison, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

"Longitudinal Support for the Scope of Self Model of Media Effects." Kristen S. Harrison, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
"Associations between Media Use and Young Adults' Perceptions of First Intercourse." L. Monique Ward, University of Michigan; Laura Averitt, University of Michigan
"Forging Identities in a New Land: Immigrant Teen Girls and Media Practice." Jean R. Steele, University of St. Thomas

Longitudinal Support for the Scope of Self Model of Media Effects

Associations between Media Use and Young Adults' Perceptions of First Intercourse

Forging Identities in a New Land: Immigrant Teen Girls and Media Practice

Identity Exploration during Emerging Adulthood: The Role Blogs Can Play


p.s. For the papers for which I don't have specific notes it is usually because it was to dense for me to keep up in any sensible fashion. Those, are very specifically, the presentations I hope become published articles.
