LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Michael Santucci, assistant professor of business, shares his study of computer-mediated interaction for the next colloquium Thursday, Mar. 14 at EOU.

Santucci investigates the compatibility of two theories: Media Naturalness and the Social Identity Model of Deindividuation Effects. He describes how their reconciliation under a combined model can be used to explain and predict changes in perceptions, attitudes and behaviors arising in computer-mediated interaction. 

The presentation begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210. It is free and open to the public. A reception with question and answer session with Santucci will follow.
