International Public Relations Research Conference

Posted on Updated on

A few weeks ago, I attended the International Public Relations Research Conference (IPRRC) in Miami. The conference was small, but it attracted big names in the field. Check out this excellent summary of research presentations written by Tom Watson at Bournemouth University. Next year, the conference will be held March 5-8 (2014) in Miami.

Posted on Updated on

On Sunday, the Centre Daily Times published an article that I wrote about volunteerism and the model that Penn State’s THON event offers. The online version doesn’t include the wonderful pictures from the event that the CDT used in the print version, but the text is all here. I appreciate the opportunity to share a bit of my research.
