    Title: After the Storm: Analyzing Chris Christie's Use of Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey's 2013 Gubernatorial Elections
    Author: Aguzino, Celeste
    Description: This study evaluates what role Hurricane Sandy played in Chris Christie’s campaign strategy and more specifically, how the disaster has altered his moral foundations and leadership style long-term. By analyzing television advertisements and speeches during the 2009 and 2013 campaign seasons, this study will consider his moral foundations and leadership style to assess how the governor’s strategy has evolved. While Christie’s motivations cannot be fully considered, this study finds that the governor has become increasingly focused on the harm v. care dichotomy moral foundation, while shifting to a Visionary Motivator leadership style in order to more widely appeal to voters nation-wide. The merging of these two methods should be further explored to understand leadership styles during crisis.

  6. Hashtagging Sandy: How are the psychological effects of natural disasters expressed in social media? [Download]

    Title: Hashtagging Sandy: How are the psychological effects of natural disasters expressed in social media?
    Author: Lam, Amanda
    Description: In the wake of crisis, humans innately succumb to particular set of emotions, allowing psychologists to develop a pattern for their responses to trauma. While subjective, a general cycle of emotions can be broken down into three stages: anticipation, experience, and recovery. This study examines this traditional psychological theory and its application to current events through the October 2012 disaster, Hurricane Sandy, and how it was expressed through social media. Presenting the timeline of trending topics and hashtags as exhibits, the investigation asks: to what extent did social media act as an outlet to express the psychological effects of natural disasters? Using the psychological stages to trauma recovery, as described by Herman (2002), and Quarantelli and Dynes (1977), as methods, this study finds that a similar pattern of human response and cycle of emotions was captured on Twitter during Hurricane Sandy. During this computerized era, this investigation examines relevant information regarding the hybridization of traditional psychology and new technology.

  8. Studying the New Town Movement for the Benefit of New Urbanism [Download]

    Title: Studying the New Town Movement for the Benefit of New Urbanism
    Author: Perry, Thomas
    Description: America is statistically diversifying on the large scale. Yet, simultaneously there is documented racial and socioeconomic homogenization on the micro level. Recently, this has led to tensions and conflicts between differing socioeconomic and racial groups, as exhibited in Baltimore, Maryland, Oakland, California, and Ferguson, Missouri. Some community planners have suggested New Urbanism as a possible solution to homogenization. A half century ago the New Town movement also attempted to address the issue. This paper will evaluate two prime examples of the New Town movement: Reston, Virginia and Columbia, Maryland. It will consider how each community approached homogenization differently and the affects of said approaches on the population. Then the evaluation will be applied to New Urbanism, to see what can be learned from the New Town Movement.
