Jayne Henson, PhD, 2010-2011 Mizzou Advantage – Preparing Future Faculty Postdoctoral Fellow in the Media of the Future area, wants to develop a broader understanding of how the use of new media impacts society and politics.
“Mediated communication influences how we form and evaluate relationships with others,” said Jayne, “New and evolving media continue to alter the social fabric of our society, and the experience and expectations of our lived worlds.”
As part of the responsibilities of being a Mizzou Advantage Postdoctoral Fellow, Jayne taught, developed courses and performed research in her area of interest. In Fall 2010, Henson taught Communication 4638: New Technologies and Communication.
Jayne has won several awards for her studies, including the Frank and Lila Gilman Memorial Fellowship from the MU Department of Communication, and the Gustav Friedrich Award for the top paper in communication education from the Central States Communication Association in 2008.
Following her tenure as a Mizzou Advantage Postdoctoral Fellow, she accepted a position as Lecturer at the University of Dayton (Ohio).
