Communication scholar friends! Do your departments bring in prospective PhD students for campus visits before offers are extended or after (i.e., pure recruitment)? Or neither? If you could share your program and the answer, it would be helpful!

Reflections from me a bunch of others on talking to family/friends about this week. Thanks @conservancy for putting this together!

My research group @comdatasci has started work on a new NSF grant that's looking at ecological dynamics in online communities. @groceryheist and @jdfoote led the work and @aaronshaw and I are PIs.

Last Friday was the @uwdub@twitter.com retreat—@UW@twitter.com's annual day-long get-together for people working at the intersection of people and computing. I was the faculty co-organizer w/ @jonfroehlich@twitter.com. Zara (@uwmhcid@twitter.com) put together this awesome video documenting the event! 🤩

There are a *bunch* of other incredible computational communication scholars running as well! I hope you'll vote for me but I actually feel pretty conflicted myself! If one of the other candidates gets the plurality, I think that would pretty awesome too! (5/5)

I've posted a candidate statement that you can read on the election site. The things I'm most psyched to do include increasing the presence/profile of computational methods in the field/@icahdq@twitter.com & working to increase diversity, , and within @ica_cm@twitter.com. (4/5)

This is basically a "service role." Leadership plans the conference, goes to meetings, and so on. I'm running because although I teach at @UWComm@twitter.com, my background/training is outside com. @ica_cm@twitter.com provided a home for me and an path into the field. I am running to give back. (3/5)

Show thread

You need to be a member of @icahdq@twitter.com and the @ica_cm@twitter.com sub-group to vote. If you do computational work in/around communication, you should *definitely* be a part of @ica_cm@twitter.com! Details on how to vote are on this page: icahdq.org/page/Election2019 (2/5)

I am running for Vice Chair in @ica_cm@twitter.com (the International Communication Association's Computational Methods group)! The winner will later upgrade to Chair. The election ends in a few days (Oct 15). If you are a computational communication scholar, I hope you'll vote for me! (1/5)

@codewiz Whoops! The working links is: seagl.org/news/2019/09/30/keyn

It mostly just says that I'm giving a keynote there and provides a biography about who I am.
