UCLA's loss shall prove to be
the University's gain.
Dr. Neil Malamuth, the new
chair of the communication depart-
ment this fall said he decided to
transfer from Los Angeles to Ann
Arbor because "the University
seems committed to further devel-
oping a top department of commu-
nication. Currently at UCLA
(communication) is a smaller de-
partment. The same professional
opportunity doesn't exist," he said.
"This University is coming to
recognize that this is a critical field
and is more willing to do what it
takes to make the department a
leader in research and teaching," he
Lecturer and Kings/Chavez Parks
visiting professor Laura Moseley
said she thought Malamuth would
evaluate the department's faculty
"The new chair has indicated that
curriculum procedures and faculty
recruitment will all be reviewed
and evaluated ... It has to have a pos-
itive effect," Moseley said.
"Things that work well will be
continued. There's room for expan-
sion, bringing in additional excel-
lent faculty, and condensing what's
here," Malamuth said.
The new chair is also a professor
of communication and psychology.
He is currently teaching a graduate
level course giving students a gen-
eral introduction to communication
and department members. The
course is designed to "give
(students) an idea of some of the
major issues in the field," he said.
Malamuth said he did not plan to
pursue an academic career, but when
he was a sophomore at UCLA he as-
sisted a student working on a doc-
toral dissertation examining the
connection between sex and
"I started getting involved in re-
search but left it because I was mo-
tivated to save the world. I felt I
had to justify my work in more ap-
plied terms," he said. He took a
break from his research and studied
conflict resolution in graduate
However, "at the time there was
a lot of controversy about pornog-
raphy, sex and the media, and rape.
There was very much in the public
attention, but there had not been any
"I decided to do a few studies to
... try to see if images affect people
or not and obtained some pretty
dramatic results," Malamuth said.
"Some of the results were at
variance with the common beliefs
among psychologists, media re-
searchers, and the general public,"
The criticism compelled
Malamuth to pursue his research
which he continues today. "It's a
neverending process. You never have
the final answer," he said.
Malamuth said it was a big tran-
sition to move his years of research
from the Pacific coast to the
Midwest. "And I'm a pack-rat to
some degree. I still have 200-some
boxes still packed," he said.
Malamuth said that faculty and
staff has been "generally very sup-
portive and quite excited about the
fact that the University has been
willing to commit its resources (to
the communication department)."
Assistant Professor Richard
Campbell said he is "very opti-
mistic" about the departmental
changes and the new chair. "As a ju-
nior faculty member, its nice to have
another senior faculty member to
get advice and support from," he
