Author Biography

Jess Alberts is a professor of human communication and has been a faculty member in the Hugh Downs School of Human Communication since 1989. She served as Director of the School from 1995 until June 2004. She has happily returned to the faculty and currently serves as the Director of the Conflict Transformation Project.

Alberts’ principal research interests focus on conflict in personal and professional relationships. Her current work examines married couples’ conflict and daily interaction, workplace bullying, community mediation, and work/life balance. Previously she has conducted research on adolescent drug resistance, teasing and ethnic humor, and flirting. She is in the process of developing a study to explore social hierarchy and the economy of gratitude theories as explanations for the division of household labor.

Alberts teaches courses on human communication, conflict and negotiation, relational communication, and work/life balance. She was selected by the undergraduate association for the Last Lecture Series Award, by the graduate student association for a Mentor Appreciation Award, and by Commission on the Status of Women for the Outstanding Achievement and Contributions Award.

Judith Martin is a professor of human communication and has been a faculty member in the Hugh Downs School of Human Communication since 1990. She teaches courses in intercultural communication in domestic and international contexts. Prior to joining the ASU faculty, she held a joint appointment in the Office of International Education and the Department of Speech Communication at the University of Minnesota.

Her early research efforts focused on the role of communication in sojourner adaptation to overseas locales and reentry to their home culture. Her more recent research examines racial and ethnic identity and communication practices, particularly the communicative meaning of white racial identity. She is also investigating the role culture plays in newer communication technologies, such as the Internet.

She was awarded the first Patricia Gurin Scholar-Activist Award by the ASU Intergroup Relations Center in 2004 and The Achievement in Gender Equity Award by the ASU Faculty Women’s Association in 2001.  In 2001-2004 she was selected as the Jeanne Herberger Professor of Human Communication. Using this award she, along with colleagues, organized a lecture series on “Culture, Communication and Conflict.”  As part of her community service, she works with undergraduate transfer students, assisting them in making a successful transition to ASU from a local community college.
