First-generation immigrants’ and sojourners’ susceptibility to disinformation
Paper to be presented at the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication Annual Conference. Aug. 6-9, 2020.
Abstract: News consumption enhances the contact experience for first-generation immigrants and sojourners in their acculturation to the host culture. Using acculturation theory, this study explores interdisciplinary concepts.

As foreign-born residents make up close to 14% of the U.S. population, this study will provide meaningful insights.
