Sean Eddington is a doctoral candidate in the Brian Lamb School of Communication studying Organizational Communication. Sean’s primary research interests exist at the intersections of organizational communication, new media, gender, and organizing. Specifically, Sean’s dissertation research, Networks of Outrage and Identity: Organizing and Identification within /r/TheRedPill, examines online spaces as sites for organizational processes, identity formation and negotiation, gender, and social support in an online men’s rights community. The project potentially offers a pathway into understanding how and why online harassment and gendered threats are becoming increasingly prevalent in online spaces. His dissertation employs multi-level, computational analyses to examine both micro and macro levels of organizing within the Reddit community. Sean has also examined career issues within the engineering discipline regarding (1) new faculty experiences throughout their on-boarding and (2) educational cultures that impact the professional formation of engineers, which was funded by the National Science Foundation. Both projects have been published in the Proceedings of the American Society of Engineering Education. During his time at Purdue, Sean has presented numerous competitive papers and teaching activities at local, national, and international conferences. Sean has also taught a variety of undergraduate courses including Presentational Speaking, Academic and Career Planning, Small Groups Communication, Organizational Communication, Communication and Social Networks, and Principles of Interviewing. He has also served as a series editor, contributed to trade publications, and facilitated workshops related to higher education administrators’ work experiences. Sean is also actively engaged within mentoring activities within the Purdue community and has served as an advisor to multiple student leadership organizations on campus including Beta Theta Pi, which he has received both campus and international awards for his service and mentoring to the local chapter.

Emilly is a doctoral candidate in Organizational Communication. Her research interests lie at the intersections of organizational and interpersonal communication. Specifically, she examines the communicative (re)production of structural barriers to gender equity in the workforce. Emilly’s research has examined the gender wage gap, career choices, experiences of sexism in the workforce, and gendered socialization processes. Her research projects have been funded by the Cassandra Book Scholarship, a PROMISE Award from the College of Liberal Arts at Purdue, and the Purdue Research Foundation summer fellowship. Emilly’s dissertation addresses the enduring problem of sexism in the technology industry, specifically within sharing economy organizations. Her project examines how employees at various organizational levels (e.g., executives, managers, employees), as well as board members and contractors, construct knowledge about gender diversity and inclusion policies. Her project aims to enhance understandings of obstacles to policy enactment and unearth ways in which organizations could create more equitable work environments. Emilly has presented or will soon present competitively selected papers and posters at the annual meetings of the National Communication Association, the Aspen Conference on Engaged Communication Research, the Central States Communication Association, and the Organizational Communication Mini-Conference. During her time at Purdue University, Emilly has taught Fundamentals of Speech Communication, Interpersonal Communication, Organizational Communication, and a specialty course in Careers, Communication Issues, & Strategies.

Outside of academe, Emilly volunteers as an advocate for children through Tippecanoe County’s Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program.
