New Media & Society Working Group

The New Media & Society Working Group is a group of graduate students, led by Professors Lee Humphreys, Brooke Duffy, and Katherine Sender in the Dept of Communication who come together to read each others’ research, explore new research, and work through ideas together. Primarily drawing on critical, discursive, and qualitative methods, we explore the role of new media technologies in the world today.

Our current members include Chelsea Butkowski, Ngai Keung Chan, Sara Eddleman, Megan Sawey, and Colten Meisner.
