About Jacqueline Joslyn
Jackie Joslyn is a doctoral candidate with an interest in institutional change, social networks, organizations, and development. For her dissertation, she is exploring the mechanisms by which people create an appearance of continuity. Her study incorporates the classical work of Mead and Cooley to advance a new concept called disjointed fluidity, or the embeddedness of relationships in cognitive and temporal flows. She is presenting her preliminary work at the 2018 Junior Theorists Symposium. For her master's research, she conducted a pilot study on small business entrepreneurs in Tucson. The study explored the institutions and networks affecting entrepreneurs' access to start-up capital. Some of her findings are published as a research note in the Journal of Rural Social Sciences. Jackie has several working papers, some of which are under review. She and Corey M. Abramson recently co-authored "The Promises of Computational Ethnography" in Ethnography.
