I’m Katie, Assistant Professor of Strategic Communication in the Department of Media, Journalism & Film and Affiliate Faculty in American Studies in the Department of Global and Intercultural Studies at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. I am also a Research Associate of the Radio Preservation Task Force through the Library of Congress.
My research focuses on historical and contemporary practices of mediated civic, social, and global communication in American education and everyday life. My current work examines how young people have historically engaged with multiple information technologies in school to become “world citizens.”
Many of my projects look to the past to illuminate developments in digital and participatory media culture. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in New Media & Society, Media, Culture, & Society, Journalism Studies, Communication and Critical/Cultural Studies, and Technology and Culture, and has been supported by fellowships from the Fulbright Program, the Social Science Research Council and the American Association of University Women.
