The Center of Information and Communication Studies hosted its 39th CCI Research Symposium on February 1 2017. The CCI community heard presentations from nine CCI faculty members, seven graduate students, one research staff member, and visiting scholars from the University of Sao Paulo (Brazil), UT Institute of Agriculture, and the University of Kentucky. Their presentations covered a variety of diverse topics from scientists’ data reuse behaviors to Jimmy Carter to ‘mainstream’ media.
