    Coker Professor, Student Publish Important Essay on Pop Culture


    Hartsville, S.C. (July 13, 2021) – Jordan White, a junior communication major at Coker University, and Dr. Peter Gloviczki, Associate Professor of Communication at Coker, have co-authored an essay, What We Listen For, which has been accepted for publication in Cultural Studies/Critical Methodologies (Sage).

    The essay is two autoethnographic sketches that investigate what we listen for across popular culture. Ms. White and Dr. Gloviczki will stimulate dialogue about autoethnographic collaboration as a way of knowing culture.

    Dr. Gloviczki reports that, “Jordan has been working on this paper throughout the year, and she deserves all the credit for this publication,” noting his contribution to the work is minor, focused on theory in the conclusion. 

    What We Listen For is Jordan's second publication. Earlier this year, White and Gloviczki received word that their co-authored work, Parallel Paths through the Storm, was accepted in Qualitative Inquiry (Sage). White was also the lead author of that piece. She guides the process from conceptualization to completion. As an emerging scholar in media and cultural studies, White looks for ways to blend theory and practice to make meaningful insights about media, technology and society.
