Sarah Talboom wins Best Student Paper Award at International Conference on Trust Management
Sarah Talboom has recently won the "Best Student Paper Award" with the paper "Providing trustworthy advice online: An exploratory study on the potential of discursive psychology in trust research".
Her paper explores insights from discursive psychology as a potentially interesting approach for trust research in online peer environments. Within search behavior trust plays a central role; it will guide the decision to participate online, to share experiences or to pick up information from the Internet. How do members of an online forum try to present themselves – and the information sources they refer to in their arguments – as trustworthy and authoritative? Trust is being studied as something highly negotiable depending on context.
She received this award during the 8th IFIP WG 11.11 "International Conference on Trust Management", at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
