Abstract: Major, historical events, especially the kinds that radically transform everything about an individual or a society, are never linear trajectories. They can be confusing, chaotic, and many time, we do not even know when we are in one. The problem with way we normatively and theoretically approach events is under the assumption that they begin and end like the narratives we use to make sense of them. Narratives force events into storylines, preventing us from seeing and analyzing them as they are—living and moving. Whether extraordinary transformations like wars, declarations of independence, and political transitions, or everyday encounters, like birth, love, and death, events do not begin and end, but take different shapes and morph into new ones, as actors intervene, contexts shift, and other events cross their paths. Whether taking the form of a breaking-news headline, handshake, official report, monument, memorial, or tweet, it is the hand-offs of different forms which keep events alive (Wagner-Pacifici 2017). Breaking with traditional approaches to the study of historical events, this paper advances a new sociology of events, equipped with new analytical tools to investigate them, following the developments of Robin Wagner-Pacifici (2017). This comprehensive approach allows us to track ongoing events and better understand what happens to events and their meanings as they live and move across time and space. As they constantly undergo processes of bounding and unbounding, it is impossible to entirely determine the limits of an event. But because events are impacted by contact with other events, how do we locate the boundaries of one as it collides with another? How do we know which event we are in?

"Sporting Events and Crime: A Geospatial Analysis of Sporting Event Attendance and Neighborhood Crime" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, St. Louis Adam's Mark, St. Louis, Missouri, Nov 12, 2008 <Not Available>. 2018-12-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p270063_index.html>

Abstract: While much research has explored the relationship between participation in sports and individual criminality, little research has explored the relationship between sporting events and neighborhood crime. While sports may benefit participants by reducing their criminal behavior, sporting events may actually be a detriment to surrounding neighborhoods in terms of increased crime as event attendees may overwhelm existing neighborhood social controls. Using longitudinal data comprised of census data, municipal crime data, and a data set containing five years of sporting event attendance, this study examines the relationship between sporting events and neighborhood crime in a large city in the United States using geospatial analysis techniques. The results have implications for both social disorganization and routine activities theories of crime.

Abstract: The current study examined the influence of event frequency, modality, and interview prompt specificity on accuracy and language used when describing an event. One hundred twenty-five children (Mage = 7.22 years, SD = 0.63 years) either read a story about a magician or watched a live magic show, which occurred one, four, or six times. Children in the single-event condition provided more correct responses about the magic story/show than children in the repeat-event conditions. However, report accuracy and specificity varied as a function of interview prompt for repeat-event children but not single-event children. Implications for interviewing child witnesses are discussed.

Abstract: Open source data on terrorism are rich in contributing to our understanding of terrorism. Largely unknown, however, is the extent and nature of reporting biases in the data. This study inquires into one source of reporting bias: the episodic crowding out of news about terrorism events by other more serious events. We test this effect on the reporting of terrorist events in open source data by focusing on major catastrophic disasters, which receive extensive media coverage. The data on terrorism events is taken from the Global Terrorism Database (GTD), the most comprehensive data collected on terrorism, based mainly on publicly available information through the mass media. We look at the impact of the 20 most fatal disasters in the two decades from 1994 to 2013. The data on disasters is gathered through The International Disaster Database (EM-DAT). We compare the number of global terrorist attacks that are reported in the seven days prior to these major disasters with those reported during seven days following the disasters. We test the crowding-out hypothesis by comparing the mean differences of non-fatal terrorist attacks and the percent of non-fatal terrorist attacks reported in the GTD across the periods immediately before and after the disasters.
