Antioch College was represented by a student and member of the faculty at the 111th Annual Meeting of the Southern Society for Philosophy and Psychology. The Conference was held in Cincinnati from March 7–9, 2019.

First-year student Delaney Schlesinger-Devlin ’22 and Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology Teófilo Espada each made submissions which were selected for presentation.

Delaney Schlesinger-Devlin ’22 submitted a research poster titled, “Perceptions of No Child Left Behind in Newspapers in Texas between 2001 and 2006.” In her poster she uses qualitatively and quantitatively content analysis to examine the impact of newspaper reporting on public perceptions of the No Child Left Behind Act.
