Doctoral candidate Carol Terracina Hartman is presenting a paper examining the use of social media among nonprofit environmental groups at a June conference in Amsterdam.
Sponsored by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Science, the Social Media and the Transformation of Public Space annual conference takes place at the University of Amsterdam.
The paper accepted for presentation is “Communication and Sustainability: Exploring nonprofit environmental groups use of social media.”
It was produced by Terracina-Hartman and co-author Robert Nulph, of Missouri Western State University.
It will be presented in the activism category of the conference that explores how social media transforms the concept of public space. Organizers seek to examine how social media transforms such domains as news production, public broadcasting, activism, and law and order.
