Dr. Zuoming Wang's Research Grant!

Congratulations to Dr. Zuoming Wang for her $10,000 research grant, awarded by Villanova University's Waterhouse Family Institute for the Study of Communication and Society (WFI). Dr. Wang will use this grant to support her study, "Social Media in Social Movement: A Comparative Study of Twitter Usage During the Arab Spring Egypt Protest and Occupy Wall Street Protest."

The WFI-endowed by Mr. Lawrence Waterhouse, Jr., and housed within Villanova University's Department of Communication, was founded on the principle that scholars, activists, and practitioners of communication have an important role to play in the creation of a socially just world. One of the ways that they enact this mission is through the annual funding of research grants to support the scholarly work of Communication scholars across the world, with work examining communication, its impact on the world around us, and its ability to create social change and social justice.
