Amanda Weed is a terrific servant of the wider discipline of mass communication. As vice head of the AEJMC Graduate Student Interest Group, she initiated, planned, and promoted the first-ever joint social with the History Division. This event was designed to build intellectual and professional bridges between AEJMC graduate students and one of the oldest divisions in our academic association. It did just that—and it built a sense of solidarity and common purpose between our members. What’s more, it was a fun event, with great food and door prizes in a terrific off-site location in Montreal where our members could enjoy one another’s company. Amanda is organized, self-starting, and strategic. I would love to have someone with her energy, vision, and efficiency as my colleague.”

Amanda Weed is a wonderful person to work with academically.  She is productive, efficient and exceptionally knowledgable.  When working with her, she not only contributes outstanding ideas, but also motivates others to the same higher-level critical thinking.  Co-authoring a paper with her was an experience I would gladly repeat.”
