"Interruptions and Online Information Processing: The Role of Interruption Type, Interruption Content, and Interruption Frequency" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Sheraton New York, New York City, NY, Online <PDF>. 2019-09-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p15170_index.html>

Abstract: Recent new media research has identified the construct of interruptions as an important variable in online information processing environments. We report results from two experiments that examine how online interruptions influence users’ cognitive and affective perceptions toward both the interruptions and the Website that features them. Study 1 examines a social characteristic of interruptions and manipulates interruption type in terms of pop-ups and pop-unders. Study 2 employs a factorial design and explores the interaction between a social characteristic (interruption type) and a cognitive characteristic (interruption content), while increasing the frequency of interruptions during an information-processing experience. Findings from the two studies point to the psychological relevance of interruptions and provide a holistic perspective on the role of interruptions in influencing user cognitions and attitudes in Web-based environments.

Abstract: Challenging the common wisdom that the prerevolutionary Kuomintang state (1927-1949) failed to promote economic growth, consolidate domestic political forces, and prevent the Communists from coming to power,
this paper claims that such argument does not give a proper credit to the Kuomintang’s modernizing accomplishments achieved in the extremely difficult conditions. Bringing attention to the international contexts of Chinese modernization, it argues that it was the devastating experience of total war against Japan, rather than alleged ineffectiveness of the KMT government, which undermined the Nationalist state and created structural conditions for the Communist takeover.

Abstract: Amit Pinchevski’s By Way of Interruption: Levinas and the Ethics of Communication should be credited for being one of the first and most comprehensive works to bring Levinas’ work to bear on communication ethics. Pinchevski’s book operates from an interpersonal perspective and stresses the incompleteness of communication through the metaphor of “interruption.” This presentation, however, goes beyond Pinchevski’s interpersonal approach and additionally argues that a Levinasian communicative ethics must also be informed by an environmental perspective through the metaphor of echoes.

Abstract: Ethnography is in many ways the study of how people make sense—complex, nested, and layered processes of sensation and signification (e.g. Gotlieb & Graham, 2012; Ortner, 2007; Stewart, 2007). Following understandings in sensory and affect studies, multisensual ethnography provides researchers the ability to critically and creatively broaden what “data” might mean and how it can be represented. This expansion provides an increased opportunity for participant agency and voice while maintaining the tenets of contemporary ethnographic practices, particularly as they pertain to questions of ethics, transparency, and power. It is an opportunity to utilize myriad ethnographic practices, processes and representations (i.e. ethnodrama, ethnographic film, sonic ethnography) in ways that can further make the familiar strange while enunciating both what is ordinarily sensible to local actors and what those sensibilities might say about the ecologies that inform local interactions. Here, co-authors performatively articulate such possibilities in regards to education and schooling.

5. Martin, Randall. "Interrupted Waters: Climate Change, Privatization, and Freshwater Ecologies in Shakespeare" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Humboldt University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany, <Not Available>. 2019-09-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p752638_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Twenty-first century climate change is making supplies of freshwater an increasingly scarce and contested resource. These developments challenge traditional ideas about water as a common heritage, a public trust, and a human right. The origins of these ecological controversies can be traced back partly to early modern England, when demographic and climate changes during Europe’s “Little Ice Age” shaped new cultural and economic distinctions between wasteful and productive waters. This paper will briefly examine attitudes towards river-water in Shakespeare before focusing on two contested water transfers with strong ecological resonances today: Hotspur’s proposed diversion of the River Trent in Henry IV Part One; and topical allusions in Coriolanus to Hugh Myddleton’s construction of England’s first private waterway from Hertfordshire to London in 1609-13.
