Lee, Padgett present Q study in London


School of Communications faculty members Byung Lee and George Padgett traveled to the University of Durham in the United Kingdom to present "An Attitudinal Study of the Why and How of Newsroom Diversity" at the annual International Society for the Scientific Study of Subjectivity Q-Method conference Sept. 19-22.

"The study looks at attitudes about diversity in the newsroom and in news content - why it's important and how to go about achieving it," said Padgett. "We began with the intention of surveying both academic and professional populations, but met with considerable technical difficulty getting the bugs out of the online sort ... in the end we decided to use a student population and consider it a phase-one study. We'll survey outside later and publish the results."
