Dr. LaShonda Eaddy wins Emerald Literati Award
Dr. LaShonda Eaddy

SMU CCPA Professor Dr. LaShonda Eaddy recently received a 2019 Emerald Literati Award for her article, “Crisis history tellers matter: The effects of crisis history and crisis information source on publics’ cognitive and affective responses to organizational crisis” published in Corporate Communications: An International Journal.

The paper, which presents research that explores how an organization’s crisis history affects it in a crisis event, also examines the impact of information source on publics’ perceptions during a crisis event. The study expounds on the tenets of the situational crisis communication theory (SCCT), particularly the underutilized crisis history component.

Congratulations, Dr. Eaddy on your Emerald Literati Award.
