Cooper-Chen produces research on death penalty, Cold War; wins OCA award
Since June 2013, Anne Cooper-Chen, retired Scripps Professor Emerita, has presented research from two different studies.
One concerned itself with coverage of executions in mainstream media, and the other was named "Top Poster" at the Ohio Communication Association (OCA) Conference in October 2014.
The former was presented at the IAMCR (International Association for Media and Communication Research) 2013 conference in Dublin. The presentation was titled, "’A Nation Desensitized’: Exclusion/Inclusion of Executions in Mainstream U.S. Media."
The latter presentation, titled "The United Nations: Images from Two Worlds, 1945-1965", was co-authored with M.S. candidate Kesha Liao and Ph.D candidate Kay-Anne Darlington.
Cooper-Chen is a prolific media scholar, with five dozens of papers attributed to her name. This latest effort is proof of her words:
"We profs may retire from the classroom, but not from our passion for research."
