1. Shephard, Tim. ""Stupid Midas": Visualizing Musical Judgment and Moral Judgment in Italy ca.1500" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The 62nd Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America, Park Plaza Hotel and Hynes Convention Center, Boston, MA, <Not Available>. 2019-05-26 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: On a decorated plate of ca.1520 created for Isabella d’Este, the marchesa’s device of musical rests – symbolising her prudence – is set against the ancient story in which King Midas’ ‘incorrect’ judgement of the outcome of a musical contest between Apollo and Pan wins him an ass’s ears. In contemporary courtly texts, ‘prudence’ is identified as the faculty of secure moral judgement, a meta-virtue ensuring proper behaviour in all situations; meanwhile, the same authors identify instruction in music as effective in cultivating good moral judgement. Isabella’s plate thus contrasts her own musical expertise, evidence of her secure moral judgement, with Midas’ musical ineptitude, evidence of his faulty judgement in general. Beginning from Isabella’s plate, this paper will examine early-16th-century representations of the Judgement of Midas as images emblematising the alignment of musical and moral judgement, using these images to reflect on the important role of ‘judgement’ in courtly musical culture.

2. Chung, Sungeun., Lee, Wonji. and Kwak, Jungwon. "A Social Judgmental Model of the Third-Person Perception Hypothesis: Focusing on the Effect of Pre-Existing Attitudes, the Level of Knowledge, and Message Strength on Judgments on Media Impact" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Hilton Metropole Hotel, London, England, Jun 17, 2013 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-05-26 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: This study proposed a model of the third-person perception (TPP) based on an assumption that TPP is a social judgment. Hypotheses were proposed regarding the effect of pre-existing attitudes, the level of knowledge about issues, and message strength on perceived impact on self and others, and TPP. An online-experiment was conducted to test those hypotheses (N = 394). A (strong vs. weak) persuasive messages regarding nuclear power plants was presented to either those who opposed nuclear power plants or those who supported nuclear power plants. Perceived impact of messages on self and various groups of others were measured. Results showed that the third person perception was affected by congruence between message position and pre-existing attitudes of self, congruence between message position and pre-existing attitudes of other, the level of knowledge possessed by self, and the level of knowledge possessed by other. The findings supported the proposed model. Theoretical implications of findings were discussed.

3. Albrechtsen, Justin., Meissner, Christian., Horgan, Allyson., Susa, Kyle. and Kassin, Saul. "Are Immediate Judgments Better at Detecting Deception than Deliberative Judgments?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychology - Law Society, Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront, Jacksonville, FL, Mar 05, 2008 <Not Available>. 2019-05-26 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Recent research in our laboratory has suggested that intuitive approaches to deception detection may improve the accuracy of distinguishing between true and false accounts. The current study extends this research by employing a more practical manipulation of processing type in which participants are instructed to enact in deliberative vs. intuitive processing as they attempt to detect deception. The theoretical and practical aspects of the results of this line of research will be discussed.

4. Judge, Elizabeth. "Placing and Displacing Judgments: The Judicial Creation of the Legal Canon and the Lineage of Judgments" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Law and Society Association, Hilton Bonaventure, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, May 27, 2008 <Not Available>. 2019-05-26 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: In his famous essay on “Traditional and the Individual Talent,” T.S. Eliot, as both author and literary critic, examines literary history as a paradoxical relationship between originality and tradition. This paper seeks to do the same for legal history by closely analyzing how judges, as both authors and legal critics, creatively construct order out of a dynamic tradition of precedent. Arguing that Eliot’s insights for literary history as to the “perception, not only of the pastness of the past, but of its presence” equally apply to legal history, the paper analyses specific discursive strategies in judgment writing by which this simultaneous sense of timelessness and originality is created. This presentation would focus on three key decisions of the Supreme Court of Canada and the published reflections of Bertha Wilson, Rosalie Abella, and Benjamin Cardozo on law as literature and Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. on the common law to describe the particular writing and judging practices that re-create order from the legal canon and create a sense of precedential timelessness out of dynamic shifts in the lineages of judgments, and how these practices have been implemented in Canada’s high court. Through a close reading of these judgments, the presentation will consider how judgments are placed or displaced within a lineage of cases and within or outside the canon and how judges construct authority for specific judgments.

5. Hwang, Hyunseo., Lee, Gun Hyuk. and Park, Sung Gwan. "News discrepancy Perception and News Credibility judgment: The Role of the Self as a Comparison Anchor in Judgmental process of News Credibility" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Association For Public Opinion Association, Fontainebleau Resort, Miami Beach, FL, <Not Available>. 2019-05-26 <>
Publication Type: Paper/Poster Proposal
Abstract: Research on news credibility and its antecedents consistently shows perception or judgment of news credibility is both subjective and relativistic. Even though this subjectivity and relativity element of news credibility judgment are key theoretical components in research on media bias perception, they have not been conceptually developed and empirically tested in the research. For example, some scholar measures media bias perception by asking respondents to evaluate whether a given article was neutral, or biased in favor of one side or the other, while others measure news bias perception as asking respondents to evaluate news slant compared to their own views. In addition, different but similar concepts such bias, slant, trust, and credibility have been used without any clear conceptual distinction. To address these measurement and conceptualization problems in the research on media bias perception, this study distinguished media bias perception into two different components – news discrepancy perception and news credibility judgment and then tested the role of the self as a comparison anchor in audience judgmental process of news credibility. Specifically, we constructed two different news discrepancy perceptions – news discrepancy from neutral point and news discrepancy from one’s own view and examined the relationships of each discrepancy perception to both its antecedents (e.g., issue involvement, political ideology, and strength of political ideology) and news credibility judgment.
A Web-based survey with the issue of revision of the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) spurred by U.S military vehicle accident in South Korea are used to test several hypothesized relationships among the main variables. Findings reveal that neither antecedent variables of the model nor news credibility were related to perceived news discrepancy from neutral point. In contrast, perceived news discrepancy from one’s own views had strong relationship to issue involvement, political ideology, strength of political ideology, as well as news credibility.
