AAAL2015 in Toronto was fantastic! Kudos to Paul Matsuda, Program Chair, for a job well done. The quality of the presentations, roundtables, and plenaries was outstanding. It was so good to catch up with dear friends and colleagues–and to make new ones. I now have lots of energy for pushing ahead with my books, articles, and various other projects.
My presentation with Steven Talmy critiquing “Small Stories and Positioning Analysis” was well received and attracted some buzz.
The panel with Kasper & Ross also attracted attention and received some citations, so we must be doing something right!
Keith Richards (the qualitative research superstar, not the musician) even gave me a shout-out in his talk. Woo-hoo! I’m a big fan of his work, so it’s an honor to have him even say my name.
