Brian Creech is an assistant professor of journalism in the School of Media and Communication at Temple University. He received his Ph.D. in mass communication from the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication and specializes in digital journalism, mobile technologies, public discourse and social movements. His research attempts to bring insights from poststructuralist theory into the study of journalism, communication, and technology. Brian’s current projects use the work of Bruno Latour, Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, and Felix Guattari to explore the production of public knowledge, looking at the ways in which technologies, political ontologies, and journalistic practice render sensible the issues, events, and phenomena that enter into realms of public discourse and debate.
