Beyond journals: A media workshop at NYU

with 4 comments

Beyond journals“—a media workshop held at NYU on January 26, 2010—gives a glimpse of academics on the brink. Six professors—Amodio, Heilman, Jost, Marcus, Pelli, Phelps—and a savvy publicist—Cerand—present diverse views of old and new media. I convened and reported the event.

  3. The report of our media workshop has been viewed 1,066 times. I announced it on Twitter:
        238 @denispelli
    That tweet was received by my 238 followers, and retweeted by several colleagues (thank you!), here sorted by their follower counts:
    32,292 @jayrosen_nyu

       129 @archasa
        48 @KateMadd
    Thus a total of 66,238 people received a tweet about our media workshop with a link to the report. [Is that a big number? The daily circulation of the New York Times is one million. Miller’s 1956 Psych Review article “The magic number 7±2”, one of the most highly cited articles in psychology, has been cited ten thousand times.]

    Our workshop and the report were also mentioned in several blogs (thank you!), including the NYU Facebook page,
