Associate Professor (on leave spring 2013)
Specifically, I am interested in online information access (as it relates to democracy), internet commercialization, and the digital archiving movement.
My background is in journalism, media production, and media literacy pedagogy, and my research concerns two areas: the role of the U.S. media in democracy and research visualization.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Iowa, my M.A. from the University of Michigan, and my B.A. from Oberlin College. While earning my doctorate at the University of Iowa I was the recipient of a four-year Iowa Presidential Fellowship and a Spencer Fellowship. In the spring 2013 term, I will be in Hungary for a Fulbright Research Fellowship. Web Site: http://www.uni.edu/fabos
