1. Bennett, Caroline. "Past Present, Present Past: Restoring Time beyond the Khmer Rouge Regime" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Asian Studies - Annual Conference, Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, Toronto, Canada, <Not Available>. 2020-02-25 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The Khmer Rouge tribunal focuses on a punitive and retributive system of justice, one based in an international framework, where individuals must be held responsible for the terrible crimes of the Khmer Rouge and where justice is served through imprisonment and the finding of guilt. But for most Khmer people in Cambodia, these courts hold little relevance and make no impact on their everyday lives, where local forms of dealing with that period of history take dominance. Based on anthropological fieldwork in Cambodia, this paper will explore how people in rural Cambodia draw on Buddhist frames of reference to understand and narrate the regime, and by doing so are creating their own understandings and lived experiences of that period of historical violence. It will discuss how people narrate the period as situated within Buddhist temporality, one that situates times of chaos and stability as part of dukkha – the eternal suffering of life, and explore how through the resilience of Buddhism and its ritual resilience – the maintenance of forms of ritual (even if imaginative) during the regime - people make links between the period before the Khmer Rouge and after it, and thus are able to narrate the chaos and destruction as an aspect of Khmer Buddhist cosmology, that enables recovery in everyday life beyond the courts.

Abstract: This paper calls for a robustly and reflexively historical strand in applied linguistics. Building upon an emerging body of critical applied linguistic research, this paper voices the need to integrate concern for real-world ideologies, practices and policies with a deeper understanding of the historical ontology of language and decolonial epistemology.

Abstract: This study of female engineering students attending a prominent technical college in an urban center in the southeastern United States aims to determine how these students make choices about their self-presentation and how such choices affect their interactions with professors and peers. Within this study, a grounded theory style of analysis is used to address the following specific questions: How do students make decisions about how to present themselves? How are such decisions related to their actions and behaviors? and How do such decisions intersect with their gender identity? The findings from 10 semi-structured in-depth interviews reveal the varied ways female engineering students perceive and use self-presentation as a means of navigating their way in a male-dominated environment. These choices affect and are affected by students’ sense of identity, self-efficacy, and self-esteem, all of which are determined within social institutions via interactions with others that are fundamentally shaped by gender. Furthermore, all of these aspects of self-concept are shown to have implications regarding the motivation of female students to remain in or leave male-dominated engineering programs.

4. Turner, Paaige. "Represent, Re-present, Present" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ICA's 66th Annual Conference, Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk, Fukuoka, Japan, <Not Available>. 2020-02-25 <>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: Qualitative, interpretive inquiry stands counter to the disembodied, objective, scientific research tradition that guides quantitative, foundationalist research. Yet, organizational communication scholars who seek to “publish” qualitative work find themselves operating within textual domains rooted in quantitative, foundationalist assumptions. These assumptions direct and constrain our ability to represent, re-present, and make present the overwhelming richness of qualitative data. They silence our attempts to give voice to the multiple people, voices and identities that are part of that work. In this paper, I will situate these challenges within the larger paradigmatic debates and explore strategies for representing, re-presenting, and (being) present. These strategies include tactics for negotiating alternative modalities of representation with the editor, identifying and valuing alternative outlets, negotiating relations between self-other, and using textual/image alternatives.
