       “…it is a tragedy when academia cuts itself off from active participation in the public sphere.   It is a tragedy when academic scholarship is evaluated solely on publication in refereed articles where things will be read by six other specialists if you are lucky.  The mean number of times an academic article is cited in literature is slightly less than once – between 0.8 and 0.9.”

       …For a variety of internal discussions, there are huge resources deployed.  There is a great deal of knowledge generated.  Powerful analytic techniques. It’s not that this is not a significant kind of knowledge production, but it is very poorly engaged with broader public discussions.”

          from the introductory remarks of President Craig Calhoun
          at the Media Policy & Research Pre-Conference,
          January 11, 2007, Memphis Tennessee
