A thing in academia is to go to conferences in hopefully far-flung locales and sit on a panel with 5 – 6 other people, each giving a 15-minute presentation of their recent research, followed by questions and answers from at least several colleagues in the audience.
COVID-19 has meant the conferences continue, but over Zoom. So the other day I was up at 2 a.m. presenting work I have been doing with Dr. Shuhua Zhou at Mizzou and Dr Lei. Gou at Nebraska/Omaha. The 2 a.m. wake-up adding insult to injury of not being in Oslo or Prague or wherever the conference would have been in the before times.
This week’s presentation at the European Communication Conference was a summary of that first paper, and of a second that is awaiting publication, hopefully this month. But, for interest, the slides are below.
