Northeastern and New Media Culture

It’s been a relatively quiet summer but there’s plenty to blog about as the new semester begins.

An exciting bit of news is that I’m joining the faculty of Communications Studies at Northeastern. I’m also happy to remain involved with the Berkman Center as a faculty associate. (Now, I’ll be riding my bike across the Charles.)

In the upcoming semester I’ll be teaching two sections of a course called New Media Culture. I’m really looking forward to the class; we’ll be using Jenkin’s Convergence Culture and Gershon’s Breakup 2.0 and also touching on Lulz, Anonymous, celebrity, and collaborative cultures online.

I will be posting more news about Wikimania 2011, Wikipedia and gender, and the book’s Web edition in the upcoming month.
