Assistant Professor Andrew Pritchard had a review of Sport and Religion in the Twenty-First Century published in the book review newsletter of the Central States Communication Association. He also submitted two pieces of original research for journal review: “Staying on the Right Path: Family Communication Patterns and Religious Exploration Among Emerging Adults” to the Journal of Family Communication, and “Not the Publisher, Still the Proprietor: Bypassing a Website’s Immunity Under Section 230 in Sex Trafficking Cases” to Communication Law and Policy. The latter paper, co-authored with undergraduate Elaina Conrad, received third place overall and top faculty debut honors in August from the AEJMC Law and Policy Division.
In service activities, Pritchard has been elected co-editor of the newsletter and social media feeds for AEJMC’s Religion and Media Interest Group. He is participating this semester in a provost’s writing group and a teaching mentorship sponsored by CELT. He produced dozens of on-scene photos and several videos for the American Red Cross during the recent flooding in Cedar Rapids (viewable on Facebook). He also has been contacted by the ACCESS Assault Care Center to produce video training materials on legal issues related to sexual assault and domestic violence.
