Past H2 Professorships Sara K. Impacts on Public Attitudes Toward Science This project examines humor in science communication in two ways: Science communication research has paid remarkably little attention to the use of humor in messages about science on at least three dimensions.
First, there is little empirical examination of the extent to which messages about science use humor and comedy.
Second, as humor is subjective, the types of science-related comedy that viewers find funny is an empirical question. And, perhaps most importantly, there is a lack of scholarship on the effect of humor in science communication on public attitudes and perceptions.
In this project, our goal is to quantify and examine the qualities of humor in science communication in online media and to use this empirical characterization of science humor in a series of experiments to identify its effects on public attitudes toward science.
Undergraduate Projects Content analysis of science humor 2 student researchers Humorous science content is quite prevalent in online media. In this project, humor is conceptualized as both a dependent and independent variable. As a dependent variable, it is worthwhile to explicitly quantify the extent to which humor is used in online science communication.
To this end, this project will analyze humor in content on two social media platforms, Twitter and Reddit. The nature of content analysis requires teamwork.
Undergraduate researchers will collaborate on coding humorous content on these media using supervised learning software combined with manual content analysis. Twitter is a microblogging platform that uses hashtags to categorize posts.
Science information is widespread on this social website. Designing and pilot testing experimental stimuli 1 student researcher To determine the effects of humor on public attitudes toward science, survey experiments require stimuli that resemble real-world uses of humor in science communication.
In combination with content analyses of science humor on Reddit and Twitter, an undergraduate researcher will design, pilot test, and analyze data using an experimental stimulus. This pilot test will inform a large-scale national survey experiment on humor in science communication.
Student applicants who are selected may use this research for their own thesis project. The H2 Professorships will select up to three students to work with each professor. The Utes nickname represents an articulation between our University and the Northern Ute nation.
Students will work with Professor Endres to craft an individual experience working within the scope of this topic. Jerry Root Associate Professor, Languages And Literature, University of Utah My research project explores the way medieval manuscript images help us understand the texts they illustrate.
There is quite an explosion of digitalized medieval manuscripts right now. This would be a chance for undergraduate students to jump in early to a field that has exciting growth ahead. Students who liked IT should be well positioned for this project.
Students will work with Professor Root to craft an individual experience working within the scope of this topic. Drawing one case study from each branch of my scholarly research, I would offer a fall class on the cultural power of the fairy tale and a spring class on chocolate as an optic through which to view colonial and medical history.
Jones seeks to combine the student learning that takes place in the classroom with real-life practice in the outside world. To that purpose—and very much in line with current trends in academic research as well as in pedagogy—she proposes to turn traditionally solitary pursuits such as writing into collaborative exercises.
Stuart Culver Associate Dean for Academic Affairs College of Humanities, College Of Humanities, University of Utah Associate Professor, English, University of Utah two linked courses that will enable students to investigate the intellectual development and social significance of higher education in three distinct historical moments.
My goal is to use this historical approach to help students contextualize the two key elements of their Honors College experience: Culver currently serves on the Dee Committee, to which his colleagues nominated him in recognition of his consistently outstanding record as an undergraduate teacher Faculty Avery E.
Holton and Sean T. Lawson Professors Holton and Lawson were awarded the H2 Professorship for their timely and innovative course surveying the use of drones in society.
Students examine readings, hear from guest speakers, take field trips and conduct in-field assignments.
Students will continue their work with hands-on drone navigation, team exercises and group projects designed to hone problem-solving, creative-thinking and teamwork skills.He was librarian at Lambeth, and in was an unsuccessful candidate for the Chichele professorship of modern history at Oxford.
In , in spite of some opposition, he founded a university at Konigsberg, where he appointed his friend Osiander to a professorship in The H2 Professorship grew out of a dynamic partnership with the College of Humanities, allowing both areas to appoint joint faculty and explore new course opportunities.
