Presenting at ICA regional conference in Poland

I had the pleasure to present my work at the regional conference of the International Communication Association (ICA) in Poland. I gave a talk on online media and body image. Specifically, I shared my thoughts on how increasing young women’s media literacy can be used to protect their body image. I reviewed some popular media literacy websites and their joint features and identified gaps in their approaches in relation to social media.
