    Meanings of Terrorism.Geoffrey R. Skoll - 2007 - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique 20 (2):107-127.
    Terrorism is a notoriously plastic word, depending on user, audience, and political context. This paper focuses on shifts in its meanings since the early 1970s. As federal statutes made terrorism a criminal offense, common usage changed from a broad meaning to one that specified terrorism as a political crime. The argument is that the state shapes meaning and public discourse through law.

    An Essay on the Social Costs and Benefits of Technology Evolution.Geoffrey Skoll & Maximiliano E. Korstanje - 2013 - Human and Social Studies 2 (2):13-39.

    Ethnography and Psychoanalysis.Geoffrey R. Skoll - 2012 - Human and Social Studies 1 (1):29-50.
    This methodological essay describes and advocates using certain psychoanalytic techniques for ethnography.

It presents an argument that using those techniques enhances the goal of ethnography as a human science and of social research. Fear of crime serves as a point of departure for the methodological argument. Finally, it links psychoanalytic ethnography to a fractal model of society and the self with reference to (...)
