You can read Caroline’s self-introduction, and her past posts about her and others’ research on deliberative democracy here, here, and here, as well as her observations about what it’s like to be a professor at a small liberal arts college (SLAC).
To read Ellen’s self-introduction about her research on diversity, go here and here. See her past posts about conducting ethnographic research on organizations, including gaining access and the use of pseudonyms.
