Rogers to deliver Annual Research Lecture April 24

Everett M. RogersRegents’ Professor of Communication and Journalism Everett M. Rogers will deliver the University’s 47th Annual Research Lecture “Applications of the Diffusion Model: Spread and Consequences of the Internet” Wednesday, April 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the UNM Continuing Education Auditorium, 1634 University Blvd. NE.

Research Lecturer is the highest honor UNM bestows upon faculty.

Rogers says, “diffusion is the process through which an innovation, defined as an idea perceived as new, spreads via certain communication channels over time among the members of a social system.”

Up to 5,000 studies have been conducted on the diffusion of innovation over the past six decades, he says, which helped in the development of a model that he will discuss in connection with the recent spread of the Internet.
