Peter Neijens, professor of persuasive communication at The Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR), University of Amsterdam, shared his research on consumer responses to Twitter and online consumer reviews to kick off the new ADPR Global Research Lecture Series. His presentation was given on Monday, Sept. 23 in the Drewry Room of Grady College.
“Learning about all the wonderful work being done, and opportunities that exist, beyond our borders is important for our students and faculty,” said Tom Reichert, department head, of the lecture series.
Neijens spent close to a week at the Grady College visiting classes as well as presenting his research and discussing exciting future research partnerships between Grady and the University of Amsterdam. Next year, a Grady faculty member will visit the University of Amsterdam to give talks and initiate further research collaboration.
