January 17, 2017: Just got the good news that I´ll be presenting a paper and speaking on a panel at the International Communication Association Conference in San Diego this May. The paper, ¨Tug-of-War or Collaboration? How Ordinary News Subjects Navigate Interviews with Journalists,¨ is about how people who are being interviewed by journalists jockey with them about what information should be included in the subsequent news story, and how it should be presented there. The second paper I´ll present, ¨Folk theories and the Black Box¨ is for a panel on new approaches to journalism audiences. I´ll be talking about three key differences in how news subjects and journalists think about news processes.

January 14, 2017: Today I submitted my manuscript to Columbia University Press, on track for publication later this year. More soon on the exact timeline.

September 2016: I made the news! In Spanish! One of the newspapers that covers the Segovia area, El Norte de Castilla y Leon did a story on a short film contest we organized as a welcome activity for our news bachelors in communication students. All the quotes are correct! Just like I typed them…

June 2016: I was the featured faculty member in the IE Meet the faculty series. You can read it here. The recorder didn´t work, but the writer mostly pieced together what I said, kinda sorta. According to my research on how people usually react when they see themselves written about by journalists, that´s probably what I would think even if the recorder did work!
