Research: 

I study the habitat requirements and long-term population trends of pond-breeding amphibians. I am currently working on projects designed to improve our understanding how both adults and juveniles choose among different suitable upland habitats. I also study long-term demographic patterns of several species with the goal of improving our ability to distinguish between natural and human-caused population fluctuations.

Biography: 

Ching-chu Hu’s music has been performed in the United States, England, Germany, Russia, Austria, China, Taiwan, and Australia, and reviews have described his music as “incredible” and “deeply moving.” Recent honors have included composer-in-residence at the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, and guest composer at the American Music Week Festival in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Ching-chu Hu is Associate Professor of Composition and Theory and is the Richard Luicer Distinguished Professor. More information can be found at: www.chingchuhu.com

Research: 

My goal as a composer is to create music that is lyrical and driven by narrative. My music tends to be tonal centric, yet filtered through a contemporary lens. I write both instrumental and vocal music in many different genres for solo, chamber, and large ensembles. Currently, most of my work tends to be commissioned for specific performers or ensembles. I write for young musicians and professional artists for a variety of occasions, including solo recitals, centennial/bicentennial celebrations, festivals, and international tours. Each composition clearly expresses my “voice,” reveals my “fingerprint.” Being raised in an artistic Chinese family in the middle of the United States has influenced my music, just as my formal training has refined my compositional skills.

Research: 

My current research interests include (1) gender differences in social behavior, (2) the social influence processes used to change others' attitudes and behavior, and (3) the personalities of attorneys.

Gender Differences

First, I am interested in gender differences in a variety of social behaviors, as well as differences in the social evaluation of women's and men's behavior.  My research in this area has examined the content of attitudes toward men and women, gender differences in interaction patterns, and the appropriateness of women's and men's emotional reaction to life events.  My current research projects focus on the social consequences of women's and men's emotional expressions during job interviews and political campaign speeches.

Social Influence Processes

My second line of research addresses the social influence processes that individuals and groups use to change others' opinions and behavior.  I am particularly interested in the conditions under which a minority opinion holder can influence the opinion of a majority, and the social influence processes by which a minority and majority opinion holders exert their influences.  My recent work on these issues has been in the context of psychology and law.

  • Eagly, A. H., Kulesa, P., Brannon, L. A., Shaw, K., & Hutson-Comeaux, S. (2000). Why counterattitudinal messages are as memorable as proattitudinal messages: The importance of active defense against attack. Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, 26, 1392-1408.

  • Kelly, J. R., Jackson, J. W., & Hutson-Comeaux, S. L. (1997). The effects of time pressure and task differences on influence modes and accuracy in decision-making groups. Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, 23, 10-22.

Personalities of Attorneys

The third line of research examines the personality characteristics of attorneys.  In particular, I am interested in individual differences between trial and non-trial attorneys as well as gender differences.  To examine some of this research click here. We have developed a webpage that summarizes the research we have conducted on this topic and contains a Psychology and Law Research Guide to articles about various topics in the field of psychology and law .

  • Hutson-Comeaux, S. L., Bluestein, B. M., & Wagner, B. C. (2004, May). Gender differences in the personality characteristics of law students and attorneys. Poster presented at the annual meeting of the Midwestern Psychological Society, Chicago, IL.
  • Hutson-Comeaux, S. L., & Pukay-Martin, N. D. (2003, May). Personality characteristics of trial and non-trial attorneys. Poster presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Society, Atlanta, GA.
  • Hutson-Comeaux, S. L., Westerhaus, E. K., & Snyder, R. (2002, June). Personality characteristics of women in male- and female-dominated occupations. Poster presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Society, New Orleans, LA.
  • Dr. Hutson-Comeaux, a 1991 graduate of Denison, returned to join the psychology faculty in 1997.  She teaches courses in introductory psychology, personality theory, social psychology, research methods and statistics, and a seminar on the psychology of law.

He received the A.B. in Latin from Frankln and Marshall College, and the M.A. and Ph.D. in Classics from The Ohio State University. Professor Jacobsen teaches Latin and Greek, and a wide variety of courses on the history and culture of ancient Greece and Rome. As a scholar interested Roman poetry, specifically in the work and the reception of the poet Ovid, Professor Jacobsen's most recent work includes an essay in the book Ted Hughes and the Classics, published last year by Oxford University Press, and an article on Ovid's influence on the contemporary Irish poet, Ciaran Carson, published in the journal Classical Outlook.

Research: 

Specifically, my interest is in the discursive production of "public health anxieties" and the ways systems of race, nation, and gender frame "risky bodies" and "at-risk bodies." In analyzing the 2002-03 multi-country outbreak of SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome), I trace a genealogy of SARS scientific progress at primarily cellular and genetic levels which serves as a backdrop for political, regulatory, and popular science discourses. In addition, I am currently interested in "nail salons" as discursively produced sites of "public health anxiety," fear, and contagion.

Broadly, my area of scholarship aims to make connections across terrains of “natures” and “cultures.” Much of the public perceives the biological sciences as wholly residing in the natural world. In other words, the scientific study of the living natural world operates with an objectivity that produces value-free knowledge that is untouched by “culture,” that is without historical, political and economic contexts; scientific knowledge is an unblemished reflection of the natural world. On the hand, there is an analogous and equally troublesome misconception of “women’s studies” as wholly residing in culture, that is operating within a social constructionism that problematically annihilates subjects, objects, and “facts.” While neither of these caricatures does justice to these (inter)disciplines’ intents, they allow us to trace needed connections between feminist critiques and biological inquiries. Feminist science studies aims to examine and embrace dimensions of reality between the social and the material.
