1. Schmierbach, Mike., Boyle, Michael., Xu, Qian. and McLeod, Douglas. "“I hate Jack Thompson”: Exploring third-person differences between gamers and non-gamers" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, Marriott Downtown, Chicago, IL, Aug 06, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2020-01-24 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Numerous studies have demonstrated a third-person perception, but many aspects of the origins and consequences of this remain unaddressed. In this study, we use the topic of video game effects to assess how differences in an individual’s use of a medium and between positive and negative effects shape the third-person effect. Although games are subject to clear third-person perceptions and subsequent support for censorship, these patterns are greatly diminished for heavy players and positive effects.

Abstract: Paper 2:
And a Woman Shall Lead Them: The Educational Leadership of Ethel Thompson Overby, 1933-1958
This paper examined the long road to securing and maintaining African American educational leadership in Richmond, Virginia. In the 19th century, African Americans had been successful in placing African Americans principals in schools as principals including Albert V. Norrell. However, Norrell and the other black principals did not remain in their positions for long. In the 20th century, African Americans continued their struggle to secure African Americans leadership in their segregated system of education in Richmond. In 1933, with the support of the National Association of Colored People (NAACP), the African American community successfully placed 3 African American principals in the segregated schools. Whereas some may see this as a setback to full participation as citizens in a democracy, African American leaders, however, particularly Dr. Tinsley viewed the placement of African American principals in some of the all-black schools as a victory. One of the individuals was a woman: Ethel Thompson Overby. This paper chronicles the political processes that led to her assignment as the first African American female principal in Richmond, Virginia and examines how she led as a principal of Elba School.

4. Hurst, Timothy. "Democracy and Collaborative Natural Resource Management: The Big Thompson Watershed Forum" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Western Political Science Association, Hyatt Regency Albuquerque, Albuquerque, New Mexico, Mar 17, 2006 <Not Available>. 2020-01-24 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: Innovative participitory institutions are emerging in the domain of natural resource management. In Colorado, there are more than forty local watershed initiatives involving citizen-based watershed groups. Often these groups are collections of existing groups that are interested in working on common problems through a collaborative, sometimes consensus-based approach. Water management entities may be able to use the strategies of adaptive management, cooperation, and collaboration in various trans-basin and transboundary arrangements, but limited agency and state resources may make effective and efficient planning and implementation problematic. This paper extends, modifies and suggests a particular framework for measuring democratic effectiveness of collaborative natural resource management regimes.

5. Ray, Louis. "The Meaning of Citizenship: Charles H. Thompson’s Editorial Thought, 1932 to 1941" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, Atlanta Hilton, Charlotte, NC, Oct 02, 2007 <Not Available>. 2020-01-24 <>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: Charles H. Thompson’s significance stems largely from his work as the Journal of Negro Education editor from 1932 to 1963. As the Journal editor, Thompson used scientific research studies as instruments for the pervasive educational inequities resulting from racial segregation. The studies that Thompson published in the Journal were often the first comprehensive studies of various aspects of African-American education. As such, these studies often provided the baseline data for measuring the claims that separate, equal educational opportunities existed in the states where segregation was compulsory or voluntary. Kluger (1976) argued that the previously mentioned research contributed to the effectiveness of the NAACP litigation campaign. In fact, Kluger has argued when Du Bois resigned as editor of the Crisis in 1934, the major forum for African-American civil rights advocacy shifted to Thompson’s Journal. In From Slavery to Freedom, John Hope Franklin (1947) also the sociological, educational and historical significance of Thompson's work as JNE editor. Consequently, the study of the Thompson's editorial thought penned between 1932 and 1945 provide a lens into a leading African-American scholar's ideas regarding agency, freedom and citizenship during the depression and post-World War I period.
