After general greetings and announcements, we discussed officer roles. Consensus was that we add both moderator and treasurer roles. The Moderator would be a big picture role with an eye on furthering the progress of the group, communicating with the advisor board on a regular basis, look for funding, and lead meetings at times. Anne Marie volunteered to be the Moderator, and Nausica volunteered to be treasurer.
We discussed future projects including the potential editing and writing for special issues of several journals.
Our primary group goal for 2019 is applying for large grants.
Then, we moved to discuss the reading of an article on the relationships between materials use, social media, and identity.
