A recent blog entry about gender and GPS ties in with some research on people’s psychological responses to media I had been involved with a few years ago. This line of research led to a bunch of different theoretical and empirical journal articles, conference presentations and so on. I decided it was time to blow the virtual dust of some of them and make them available to the world (an ongoing process of updating this website).
So you will find below citations and links to many of these articles (at least those that I could find PDF versions of).
