About Jacqueline Joslyn
Jackie Joslyn is a 5th year 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. 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. Jackie has several working papers, some of which are under review. She and Corey M. Abramson recently co-authored "The Promises of Computational Ethnography" (forthcoming in Ethnography).
