1. Townsend, Bryan Patrick. Interpersonal dynamics in the workplace: developing a communication based scale of office politics.

Degree: PhD, Speech Communication, 2008, University of Georgia

Many researchers originating from in the fields of Organizational Behavior and Industrial / Organizational Psychology have empirically examined the phenomenon commonly referred to as organizational politics, workplace incivility, deviant workplace behaviors, or "office politics". One shortcoming of the existing literature is a failure to acknowledge or recognize the inherent communicative nature of the political behaviors which researchers attempt to measure. This trend has manifested a research gap by neglecting to recognize and examine office politics as a set of communicative behaviors. This dissertation seeks to address this gap by constructing a scale of office politics based upon the communicative act. Three hundred and seventy seven participants completed various scales constructed to measure observed political behaviors. Results of the investigation found relationships between organizational level, in-group and out-group status, perceived motives, and political behavior. Results were interpreted as a call for organizational leaders to increase their information sharing efforts with those at lower levels in the organization and to de-emphasize group differences.

2. Radanielina-Hita, Marie Louise. A cross-cultural approach to serial arguing in dating relationships: the case of Malagasy romantic partners.

Degree: MA, Speech Communication, 2008, University of Georgia

This thesis represents the first cross-cultural replication of research in serial arguing. Some 224 participants recruited from Madagascar, and among members of the Malagasy Diasporas in France, Québec and the US completed a survey concentrating on several aspects of their cultural orientations, the perceived frequency of conflictual episodes, and their communication behaviors during serial arguments. Results suggest that serial arguing is generalizable to another, divergent culture. Interestingly enough, the dysfunctional pattern of communication ‘demand/withdraw’ which proved to be more damaging to relationships than the number of disagreements in previous research was similarly associated with relational outcomes in the Malagasy sample. The findings also highlight the importance of within-cultural variations in terms of conflict behaviors. An emphasis on the vertical aspect of individualism was a significant predictor of (more) dominating, aggressive styles while an emphasis on the horizontal aspect of individualism and collectivism of a compromising style.
