I’m Katie, Assistant Professor of Media, Journalism & Film and Affiliate Faculty in American Studies at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

My research focuses on the history and politics of emerging, educational and cross-cultural media. My current work examines how American youth have historically engaged with information technology to learn about and participate in globalization.

Many of my projects look to the past to illuminate developments in digital and participatory media culture. My work has appeared in New Media & Society, Media, Culture, & Society, and Journalism Studies, and has been supported by fellowships from the Fulbright Program, the Social Science Research Council and the American Association of University Women.
