Robert W Gehl Assistant Professor of New Media Department of Communication University of Utah

About

I am an assistant professor of new media in the Department of Communication at The University of Utah. I am also an affiliated faculty member in the University Writing Program at Utah.

The courses I teach include critical studies of communication technology, composition in new media, basic Web design, and political economy of communication.

My research draws on science and technology studies, software studies, political economy, and critical/cultural studies and focuses on the intersections between technologies, practices, and subjectivities. I received a PhD in Cultural Studies from George Mason University in 2010.

I've published research that critiques the architecture, code, culture, and design of social media sites such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and blogs in Social Text, Lateral, The International Journal of Cultural Studies, New Media and Society, Television and New Media, Computational Culture, and First Monday.

My book, Reverse Engineering Social Media (2014, Temple University Press), explores the architecture and political economy of social media.

I've contributed writing to The Week, The New Inquiry, The Salt Lake Tribune, Culture Digitally, and RedThread. You can also see more of my writing on my fancy "weblog."
