My research work is in media sociology. I examine both the cultural use of media as well as the ways in which society uses media to construct and maintain itself. My research areas are in citizen journalism, web memetics, social media, and social capital.
I blog occasionally on my research and teaching. I also discuss issues in the news that are of interest to my field. Please feel free to stop in, read and comment. You also can follow me on Twitter, where I curate the latest news in my field.
