Excited to share that two of my top doctoral students had their work accepted to the International Communication Association Annual Conference happening this May in Toronto, Canada – very cool topics and interesting work that we have been chipping away at for the past six months or so:
- Safoui, Asma, Matthew S. Eastin, and Laura F. Bright (2023), “Failure to Notice or Noticing the Failure”: Defining the Social Contract Literacy, a Novel Approach to Understanding Users’ Literacy of Digital Contracts,” International Communication Association Annual Conference, Toronto, Canada, May 25 – 28.
- Li, Stan, Matthew S. Eastin, and Laura F. Bright (2023), “Rome Wasn’t Watched in a Day”: Influence of Sequential TV Binge-Watching and Playback Speed on the Effectiveness of Advertising and Product Placements,” International Communication Association Annual Conference, Toronto, Canada, May 25 – 28.
Also, finally punched my bingo card for most authors on a paper ever for a piece that is the first to come out of the grant work I have been doing with the Center for Health Communication at UT Austin – more to come on this as we continue the campaign:
- Mackert, Michael, Erin Donovan, Daniela De Luca, Haley Nolan, Audrey Shaffer, Weijia Shi, Karly Quaack, Jiahua Yang, Tracy Arrington, Jakki Bailey, Kaitlin Berns, Laura F. Bright, Catherine Cunningham, Lisa Dobias, Qinyan Gao, Lori Holleran, Mazmu Islam, Susan Kirtz, Ashley McDonald, Stephanie Menhart, Amaya Ngo, Sean Upshaw, Carmen Valdez, Jessica Wagner, Joy Woods (2023), “Developing a Health Campaign for Substance Use Prevention and Mental Health Awareness: Lessons Learned from a Large Mixed-Methods Project in the State of Texas,” International Communication Association Annual Conference, Toronto, Canada, May 25 – 28.
It is going to be another fun semester on the 40 acres – Hook ’em Horns :).
