Political Science Students Present Research at VSSA

Three University of Mary Washington political science students presented research papers at the Virginia Social Science Association Annual Meeting at Richmond on Saturday, April 19.

The students and their papers are:

Mariah Young, “Social Construction of Target Populations: Testing the Media’s Framing during Disasters;”

Amber Reeves, “I Think This Is From the Onion: A Study in Media Credibility Using the AP Logo;” and

Colin McElhinny, “Beyond the Water’s Edge: Public Opinion and U.S. Foreign Policy.”

The students began working on these research projects in the political science research methods classes offered by Professors Chad Murphy and Stephen Farnsworth.
