This week on the Daily Beat: We chat with Dr. David L. Altheide an American-born sociologist and Emeritus Regents’ Professor in the School of Justice and Social Inquiry at Arizona State University.

Today on the Daily Beat, Wednesday July 27, 2016: Altheide’s research broadly focuses on qualitative methodology and the media’s impact on society. More specifically, Altheide reflects on his more than 43-year career, defining his expertise as falling within five research areas: Mass Communication, Qualitative Research Methods, Deviant Behavior, Propaganda and Official Information, and Social Control.

More recently, Altheide’s work has focused on three areas of research. The first explores the relationship between the media and fear. Altheide’s second research focus examines the media as a form of social control. And, lastly, Altheide devotes his research to the development of qualitative methodology, specifically Ethnographic Content Analysis (ECA).
