Caroline Lee Article on Dialogue Published in Top Sociology Journal

NCDD member Caroline Lee just sent us word of a recently-published article in the American Journal of Sociology – one of the discipline’s top journals! The article, based on her dissertation research, is called “Is There a Place for Private Conversation in Public Dialogue? Comparing Stakeholder Assessments of Informal Communication in Collaborative Regional Planning.” The article compares how ideals like inclusion, transparency, and social capital are interpreted very differently in two different collaborative partnerships– and explores the long-term challenges this might create for those attempting to develop formal institutions or best practices for dialogue and deliberation in local communities. It appears in volume 113, no 1 (2007) of the American Journal of Sociology, and readers can also download it from Caroline’s website: http://ww2.lafayette.edu/~anthrosoc/caroline_l.htm. Congratulations Caroline!
