Over the course of the next few months the CRDM blog will periodically feature a Q + A with one of our outstanding faculty members. We take classes with them and work with them on scholarly projects, but now we’d like to learn more about what else they’re doing. We’ve talked with David Rieder, Chris Anson, Matt May, David Berube, Susan Katz, Maria Pramaggiore, Susan Miller-Cochran, Robert Schrag, Carolyn R. Miller, Brad Mehlenbacher, R. Michael Young, Jason Swarts, Adriana de Souza e Silva, Elizabeth Craig, Andrew Binder, and Victoria Gallagher, and we recently caught up with Jessica Jameson, Associate Professor of Communication, Associate Head for Undergraduate Studies, and CRDM faculty member:
What are you reading?
Bloomsburg Weekly and Fortune are fairly regular reading to keep me up to date on what the “experts” are saying about theeconomy, leadership and organizational communication. When I read for pleasure, lately I turn to Janet Evanaovich, because I need to laugh. Otherwise I am reading email or checking facebook to see what crazy family members around the country are up to.
What classes are you teaching?
Organizational Communication; looking forward to teaching graduate seminars in Org Com and Conflict Management in the next academic year, as well as my first DE class (Conflict Management), hopefully this summer.
What are you writing about?
A current chapter on conflict in healthcare coming out in the Sage Handbook of Conflict & Communication. Other projects I am excited about include a paper on power and organizational conflict management, a study of how people move from competitive to cooperative behavior in mediation, and ongoing ethnographic work on nonprofit board communication.
What are you listening to?
Very excited about Van Halen’s new release with DLR…hard to pick favorites since I listen to everything including classic rock, country, top-40, and broadway! (I also listen to NPR in the mornings so I know what is going on in the world!)
