I joined the Department of Communication in Fall 2008, after completing my Ph.D. at the University of Southern California. I was excited about moving up north because I grew up in Montana. I received my B.A. from Carroll College (Helena, MT) and my M.A. from Wake Forest University.
My research focuses on the intersection between culture and communication technologies. I am interested in how cultural or political debates are influenced by and influence various communication media, the impact of new technologies on education and the family, and discourses of technological obsolescence in the rural United States.
I'm currently on family leave. In the spring, I will be teaching COMM 442: Digital Media & Society and COMM 708: Advanced Qualitative Methods in Communication Research.
