LIU honored me with this Newton Award for excellence in teaching in 2012.

My work as an educator lies squarely at the intersection of media, journalism, communication, cultural studies, political science, and sociology.

I have developed and taught interdisciplinary courses spanning the humanities, liberal arts, and social sciences. This includes seminars on innovative topics such as social media and social change; the environmental impacts of digital media; fake news and political satire; the rise and fall of network television; digital retreats and analog revivals; and critical news literacy.

Here’s a select list of my courses:
