ACADEMIC

 

My academic interests in grad school (Claremont Graduate University '10) ranged from online identities and digital archives to tracing how new media technologies completely flip how we consume content. For my Master's thesis, I refuted early work in Media Studies that lauded the internet as an equalizing, democratizing space and instead revealed the proclivity of online communities to reinscribe conservative, offline social scripts on race, gender, religion, and the body – online shaming, in other words. 

Feel free to read an excerpt from my thesis below, along with some other pieces I wrote at CGU.
