UofM's Dr. Jason Braasch Receives Early Career Impact Award

January 29, 2018 - Dr. Jason Braasch, an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Memphis, has been selected to receive a 2018 Early Career Impact Award from the Federation of Associations in Behavioral & Brain Sciences (FABBS).

The award is given to FABBS members during their first 10 years post-PhD, and recognizes scientists who have made major contributions to the sciences of mind, brain and behavior. The award will be presented at the 2018 Society for Text & Discourse Annual Meeting in Brighton, England, in July.

Braasch was recognized for his important contributions to our understanding of how individuals reconcile conflicts between their knowledge and new information. His research explores how to make it less likely that such information will be rejected.

Braasch joined the UofM in 2013 from the University of Oslo, Norway. He is on the editorial board of Contemporary Educational Psychology and Discourse Processes. He is also a member of the American Educational Research Association and the Society for Text and Discourse. Braasch recently served as co-editor of the Handbook of Multiple Source Use, which will be published by Routledge in March.
