    社交媒体的出现正迅速改变人类的交往与交际。全世界数以千万计的人有很大一部分时间都生活中社交媒体中,如交友网站,微博,校友网等。这一趋势正好说明互联网从本质上来看是由人际交往所驱动。与此同时,一些研究人员认为社交媒体正重新链接我们的社交DNA,使得人们习惯于一个更加开放的社会。在美国,社交媒体的各个方面都引起了研究者的极大兴趣,包括自我透露,网上友情,网上寻偶和市场运销策略。另外一些研究集中在人们为什么会热衷于使用社交媒体,他们如何在社交媒体中展现自己,社交媒体使用如何影响人们的社交关系等。2011520日星期五,中国社会科学院新闻与传播研究所世界传媒研究中心特邀美国宾夕法尼亚州立大学传播学院研究生教学和科研副主任Marie Hardin副教授,Bu Zhong(钟布)博士,及著名新闻记者Jerry Kammer先生(获2006年美国普利策奖,罗伯特肯尼迪奖,及哈佛大学1993-1994尼曼学人)共同做客第27午餐学术沙龙”,通过工作坊的形式,从以下几个方面探讨社会媒体对人们的影响:人类认知,思考模式,新闻媒体与记者,欢迎有兴趣的听众光临(英语讲座,地图附后)。
Social Media for Social Change: A Transformative Micro-Power
    The advent of social media is rapidly changing human interaction. Millions of people worldwide are living much of their lives on social media, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. The trend exemplifies that the Internet, by its very nature, is powered by human interaction. Meanwhile, some researchers believe that social media are rewiring our social DNA, making us more accustomed to openness. In the United States, various aspects of social media have been studied, including self-disclosure, online friendship, online dating and marketing strategies. Other studies investigated why people use social media, how they present themselves on social media and how social media use affects social relationships. The panelists for this workshop will specifically address the impact of social media on the following topics: human cognition, elaborative thinking, news media and journalists.

He is the author of a book about a bitter land dispute between the Navajos and the neighboring Hopi Indians, which the U.S. Congress sought to resolve with a controversial program to relocate Navajos from the disputed land. Kammer’s book, The Second Long Walk, became the basis for a film that in 1986 won the Academy Award as the best feature documentary. In that same year he became Northern Mexico correspondent for The Arizona Republic. In 1988 he joined the paper's investigative team, where he worked four years on exposing and covering a national political and financial scandal involving a powerful Arizona financier. The financier had used his close ties with members of Congress to intimidate the government officials who regulated his federally-insured financial institution, Lincoln Savings.
    In 2000, Kammer became the Republic's correspondent in Washington. D.C. Two years later, he joined the Washington bureau of Copley News Service, specializing in immigration and U.S.-Mexico relations. In 2005 and 2006 he reported on a scandal whose central figure was Congressman Rep. Randy Cunningham of California. In 2006, Kammer received a Pulitzer Prize for his work on the Cunningham story. He received the Robert F. Kennedy Award for his reporting in Mexico. His work on the Arizona financer was honored with awards for investigative reporting and financial reporting. In 1993-1994, he was a Nieman journalism Fellow at Harvard University.
