Department of Communication Arts Assistant Professor in Communication Science Louise Mares was featured in the Summer 2009 issue of On Wisconsin, UW-Madison’s magazine for alumni and friends.
Mares discusses her research into “prosocial” television that is actually beneficial to children in an article titled “Tele[re]vision” by UW-Madison alumnus Jenny Price (’96).
“Children’s interpretations of what a show is about are very different from what an adult thinks. Some kids take away the completely wrong message.”
On Wisconsin is the largest circulation alumni magazine in the U.S. and is a joint publication of the Wisconsin Alumni Association and University Communications.
