October 12, 2001 | SCOTT MARTELLE, TIMES STAFF WRITER
The move this summer from Fullerton to Millersville, Pa., gave Scott Schaffer the opportunity to wax banal. And as one of the founding editors of the Journal of Mundane Behavior, he had just the right forum for it. "There's a lot of coordination involved in moving," Schaffer wrote. "Figuring out where you're going, where you're going to live, how you're going to get your stuff there, what stuff you're going to take, how you're going to get yourself there, and all of those associated decisions."

Studies in a new academic journal shed light on the mysterious silence of passengers in office elevators, the political significance of a morning shave and cultural impact of plain talk among friends. Sound boring? Not to the editors of the Journal of Mundane Behavior, which tries to elevate the dull and fill a void in social science research with scholarly analyses of the ordinary, earthy and just plain normal.

Inspired by the radical notion that most of us don't live Jerry Springer lives, two Cal State Fullerton sociology professors, Myron Orleans and Scott Schaffer, have unleashed a new Web publication called the Journal of Mundane Behavior (http://www.mundanebehavior.org). Taking a fine-toothed comb to the quotidian, Mundane boldly takes on elevator talk, how we behave in libraries and what really happens during a morning shave. Its second issue appears next week.
