Assistant Professor Jan Lauren Boyles has completed two entries for the forthcoming Encyclopedia of Big Data. Also in research, Boyles and undergraduate student Susan Cruz-Rodriguez presented a poster at ISU’s McNair Scholars Symposium this month. The research, which will continue into next year, focuses on the portrayal of race within data-driven news narratives.
In teaching, Boyles is updating her JL MC 474 (Communication, Technology & Social Change) course for offering online in summer school. In service, Boyles is reviewing a manuscript for Newspaper Research Journal and is coordinating the review process for AEJMC’s Newspaper and Online News Division.
