Research Team Reflection: Niah Grimes

600 articles. 5 researchers. 1 study. The story of a content analysis. Before entering the CSAA program, I thought I knew what it meant to conduct research. Coming from an undergraduate institution that provided me with a great research foundation I naively thought I had all the tools to conduct doctoral level research. It was…

Doc Student Spotlight: Lamesha Andrews

“What does this mean?” “You need more depth.” Imagine seeing this question and statement on a few of your in-class reflections and homework assignments back to back. While it may seem trivial to you, seeing these words on the work that my professor returned to me, for what seemed like the 20th time, finally brought…
