1. Case, Holly. "Burning Questions: The 1830s and the Shared Origins of the Eastern Question, the Jewish Question, and the Polish Question" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies 45th Annual Convention, Boston Marriott Copley Place, Boston, MA, <Not Available>. 2019-11-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p647967_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The 19th century is the century of questions. It saw the emergence of the Eastern Question, the Jewish Question and the Polish Question. Why did these questions emerge roughly at the same time in the 1830s and what does their emergence reveal about Europe's history of the time?

Abstract: While a lot of ink has been spilled on independence referenda in recent decades, individual characteristics of referenda have seldom been the focus of research in comparative politics. In my paper I look at the role of ballot-box questions, specifically on the notion of independence in the 2014 Scottish case, and in the 1995 Quebec referendum, but more broadly on the debate in each case. While recent literature argues that the question has no effect/importance in independence referenda (Rocher & Lecours, 2018), in my paper through discourse analysis on a wide number of speeches given by leaders of each camp in the two referenda I look for evidence on the discursive role of the question in the two debates – if it distracts from touching on policies, identity etc and if at all shapes the meaning of independence presented in the two referendum questions that voters ultimately voted on.

I conclude that while the academic literature may agree/propose that the question does not matter (by comparison with other factors), politically however it is a very important and useful tool instrumentalized by whichever campaign can benefit from using it to score media attention, derail the debate from the messages of their opponents, or persuade/dissuade voters. As such it should not be discredited as less important, since a lot of time was spent decrying the long, unclear question in the 1995 referendum in Quebec, as well as negotiating and approving a short, clear question in the more recent attempt in Scotland.

3. Paine, Richard. "The Question is the Question: Analyzing the Value of Requiring Research Questions in Competitive Forensics" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 94th Annual Convention, TBA, San Diego, CA, <Not Available>. 2019-11-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p255145_index.html>
Publication Type: Invited Paper
Abstract: It has become common practice for forensics competitors, during the introductory sections of their speeches, to pose a research question which functions in many ways like a thesis for the speech and purports to provide a direction for the analysis and conclusions which follow. But are these research questions meaningful, or are they simply a convention which misrepresents the actual nature of the competitive speech? This paper will examine this question by considering such issues as: (1) the history of using research questions in competitive communication analysis, (2) a comparison and contrast of the nature and roles of research questions in competitive vs. other scholarly writing, (3) the degree to which research questions clarify vs. distort the analytical flow of speeches, (4) the impact of rhetorical questions on the other elements of competitive speeches (choice of methodology, application of method, drawing of conclusions), (5) the tendency of research questions to enhance vs. damage the quality of analysis conducted by forensics competitors, and (6) an assessment of the impact/significance of this issue on students preparing for advanced study in the communication discipline.

4. Howard, Martha. and Anthony, Holly. "Questioning Selves, Questioning Minds: Women's Persistence in Doctoral Programs" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Ninth Annual Congress of Qualitative Inquiry, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois, May 15, 2013 <Not Available>. 2019-11-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p635393_index.html>

Abstract: While retention and attrition among undergraduate students has long been an issue in higher education, the issue of attrition among graduate students has received relatively little attention. Women's attrition in doctoral programs has been well documented, but few studies have examined why some leave, but we do not know why others stay--despite their internal conflicts and desires to leave.

Participants from this study are women from two different institutions in two different states who have completed doctoral programs within the last five years, but who at some point during their program considered quitting. The purpose of this project is to understand their PhD experiences and why/how they persisted. Research questions include: What kinds of experiences lead women doctoral students to question themselves and their abilities? What motivates women to persist in doctoral programs despite doubts? How and why do they persist?
