1. Chock, Tamara., Schackman, Daniel., Ostrowski, Michelle. and Sethi, Ritesh. "It Don’t Matter to Me: The Impact of Self-Relevance and Social Distance on Third Person, First Person, and Second Person Effect Judgments" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 94th Annual Convention, TBA, San Diego, CA, Nov 20, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2019-06-16 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This study found that social distance and self-relevance affected self-other perceptions concerning the effects of anti-methamphetamine messages. Participants who made 3PE judgments gave the lowest ratings of message self-relevance, methamphetamine-use intent, similarity of people in the PSAs to self and peers, and message credibility. Those who made 2PE judgments reported the highest levels of self-relevance, methamphetamine-use intent, and message credibility. Message “quality” increased perceived effects on self, but didn’t’ determine the type of self-other judgment.

2. Adams, Megan. "From The Personal Is Political to The Personal Is Personal: Postfeminism, Agency, and the Rhetoric of Choice" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Oakland Marriott City Center, Oakland, CA, <Not Available>. 2019-06-16 <>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: The theoretical limitations and concrete possibilities of choice have been central to the contemporary battleground of feminist agency. In this paper, I examine the tension between feminist theories and politics and the individual compromises made in women's lived experiences. By revisiting the current debates about the political implications of choice and women's agency when feminist politics collide with personal desires and priorities, I seek to complicate the individualist approach of the "postfeminist" moment, particularly with regards to sites of traditional femininity.

3. Hourigan, Kristen. "Homicide Survivors’ Definitions of Forgiveness: Intra-personal, Inter-personal, and Extra-personal Orientations" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology – 71st Annual Meeting, Washington Hilton, Washington, DC, Nov 17, 2015 <Not Available>. 2019-06-16 <>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: This paper explores the definition of forgiveness from the perspective of individuals who have lost loved ones to homicide. The paper draws on 33 in-depth, semi-structured interviews that asked participants to define and discuss forgiveness and non-forgiveness both in general and as it relates to their experiences after the murder of their loved ones. Analysis shows three distinct definitions of, or orientations toward, forgiveness, each learned through interaction with family and/or religion: intra-personal, inter-personal and extra-personal. Analyses suggest that future investigations must include multiple definitions of forgiveness, and victim services must be cognizant of these various pathways towards forgiveness.

4. Munger, Sean. "Journaling Weather: Personal and Private Conceptions of the Environment in Personal Diaries of the Cold Decade (1810-20)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASEH Annual Conference, Drake Hotel, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-06-16 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The “Cold Decade” of 1810-20, a period of temporary global cooling caused by a series of volcanic eruptions, triggered a wide range of intellectual and cultural responses as people sought to make sense of the weather and climate anomalies they observed. A uniquely personal response to changing environmental circumstances can be found in general daily diaries of ordinary people from this period and their casual discussion of weather and climate matters (as distinct from journals kept by scientific observers with the express purpose of recording such matters). Through a selection of diaries—kept principally by Americans, especially in New England, but also across the Atlantic in Europe—historians can glimpse constructions of the world and the global environment that are conceptually expansive but also firmly rooted in personal, family and spiritual experiences. They reveal the ways in which people placed themselves in an environmental context and the degree to which climate, weather and the environment was a crucial and inextricable part of their daily lives. The Cold Decade is a uniquely clear lens through which to view these constructions, given both the perceived unusualness of its climate phenomena and its temporal positioning in a transitional phase in the development of scientific and environmental thought.

5. Nizzi, Marie-Christine., Laureys, Steven. and Moroni, Christine. "A third person attempt at getting to the first person experience: assessing coping in non-communicative patients with a locked-in syndrome" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 4S Annual Meeting, Sheraton Boston Hotel, Boston MA, <Not Available>. 2019-06-16 <>
Publication Type: Paper Abstract
Abstract: Objectives: In the United States, where 795,000 people have a stroke every year, stroke is the leading cause of paralysis, affecting nearly 1.8 million persons. Yet we have no rehabilitation protocol aiming to optimize coping and resilience in these patients, in part because we don’t know how to assess their first-person experience from the outside. Patients in a locked-in syndrome (LIS) experience a full-body paralysis with no cognitive impairments. They present a high-stake and unique opportunity for a post-phenomenological approach to inform medical care. Methods: In this study, we used the Brief COPE (Carver, 1997) and the Self Continuity Questionnaire (Nizzi et al., 2012) to investigate how different coping strategies relate to multiple subjective outcomes such as preserved sense of self, suicide ideation and quality of life. We surveyed 44 chronic LIS patients in 2010 and 2016. At follow up, 9 patients had died and 18 responded. Results: In line with previous literature, we parsed coping strategies into active vs avoidant coping. Active coping was correlated with quality of life, sense of self and body representation, but negatively correlated with depression (r=-0.3). Avoidant coping was negatively correlated with body representation (r=-0.5), sense of self (r=-0.5) and quality of life (r=-0.3). Importantly, avoidant coping was correlated with suicide ideation in the past 6 months (r=0.5) and with depression (r=0.6). Conclusions: In our sample, active coping strategies were optimal to support post-stroke quality of life as measured by multiple indices. Practice implications: Connecting the subjective experience of patients to quantifiable constructs, informed with ideas from postphenomenology, opens leads to train patients in subjectively and measurably more effective coping strategies to support their sense of self after a stroke.
