Research Focus: Testing psychophysiological and self-reported responses to emotional content and narrative strategies in ‘Child Hunger’ prosocial communication
Potential Student Project(s): Our research aims to help nonprofit and government organizations use emotional content and narrative strategies to develop effective prosocial Public Service Announcements (PSAs). A student will support stimuli selection and preliminary data collection in preparation for submitting a national-level grant proposal and also learn psychophysiological data collection procedures.
Attributes/skills/background sought in undergraduate: I'm looking for students with the following skills and backgrounds:
- Interests in Journalism and Mass Media research in general
- Organizational skills with a great sense of responsibility
- Writing skills
Mentoring Plan: I am planning to provide the following mentoring sessions:
- Orientation to introduce the research topic and psychophysiology lab process
- Weekly tasks and feedback sessions
- Providing general and focused academic and career advice
The student researcher will work 5 h/week on the project including a 1-on-1 interaction with me for at least 1 hour/week.
