I do historical analyses at the margins of sociology, history, and political science. A big component of the research direction I'd like to push forward more would involve some way to creatively conduct an analysis of the ways that media report on particular historical events. I'm thinking of looking at newspaper coverage of events across time and am wondering if there are any new and interesting studies/ways people have seen other folks do similar things?
I have ten participants available for my study. I would like to do a case study, but I'm considering a phenomenology. Would you recommend one over the other?
I'm starting my first independent research project as a third-year graduate student. My problem is, I have a topic I want to investigate, a context for the study, and a lot of passion for the subject, but I'm not sure how to narrow down my focus and just choose a research question already! (more info: the topic I'm interested in is cosplay! I've also been working a lot with e-textiles lately, so possibly the study can be something involving a cosplay workshop in which I show participants how to incorporate tech into their costumes, and thus hopefully increase their interest in tech. So I've got an idea for a cool thing I can do with older kids/ young adults, but no true research focus yet)

How do you pick conferences and journals to target when your work spans disciplines and content areas
I'm am also a ABT (Computing Science) with experience with research in that field but now looking how to do research in education. Any suggestions for changing horses in midstream?
I will be going into my second year of graduate school, and have attempted to get my study approved early by my advisor and my internship supervisor. My supervisor would prefer it was a minimal study, but my advisor would prefer we do a triangulated study. Any suggestions?
Any suggestions on how to remain productive with research as a faculty member at a teaching university? (Great question!) I too love this question since this is my environment!
I am a Canadian working in México but have contacts/colleagues in Canada/U.S.A. and other locations. Any experience with cross border funding activities?
I have been accepted into a Masters (in Social Work) program, and, while I am excited to begin, I am also concerned about the debt that I will amass by doing so. The process of searching for loans is a bit of a daunting one since there are so many types available, so what would be the most efficient way to search for the "safest" (combination of) loans?
Any suggestions for what Professional Pathways can mean for #AltAc or those outside of FT #HigherEd?
