Michael T. Motley (Ph.D., Pennsylvania State University; M.A. B.A., University of Texas) conducts re­search concerned with the interpersonal tactics and message strategies that individuals use in the context of problematic social interactions (for example, sexual harassment, unrequited romance, sexual aggres­siveness/date rape, and disclosures concerning sexually transmitted diseases). Motley is best known for his work on laboratory-induced slips of the tongue (e.g., Freudian slips) as indicators of cognitive proc­essing in speech. He won the 1987 and 1990 Aubery Fisher Awards for the best article in Western Jour­nal of Communication. In 1987 he was recognized by a special Eastern Communication Association panel as being among the `Top 1%` of the discipline`s scholars in research productivity during the 1980`s. He has been an associate editor for several journals and has held several offices within National Com­munication Association and Western States Communication Association. Motley has taught both gradu­ate and undergraduate level courses concerned with interpersonal message strategies and tactics.
