New faces within the NSC faculty

In fall 2012, we welcome two new members of NSC faculty.

Bridget Rubenking

Dr. Bridget Rubenking is joining NSC in August 2012, after completing her Ph.D. at Indiana University.  She holds an M.A. from Cleveland State University and B.A. from Kent State University. Her research interests focus on emotional and cognitive processing of mediated content, mainly in entertainment and health contexts. Specifically, she explores how the content and structure of mediated messages interact with trait individual differences and attitudes to influence a variety of information processing and discrete behavior outcomes via various indirect measures. Her teaching interests are in media and society and communication theory.

Dr. Rubenking will be joining members of the radio-television faculty and will teach Mass Communication Theory, and Electronic Media, Technology & Society.
