Greetings from a noob

November 11th, 2010 |

Hi all! I’m a first-year PhD student in communication at the University of Illinois at Chicago. This will be my first THAT camp, and I can’t wait. I have an M.A. in Communication Studies from Northern Illinois University, and I previously worked as a newspaper reporter in the southwest suburbs. My research interests include the intersection of new media and journalism, virtual worlds, and participation via social media. My master’s thesis was a content analysis of “newspapers” in Second Life. I hang out in the Twitterverse, or Twittersphere if you prefer, and you can find me there as TeachGuz. See you all soon!
