PUBLICATIONS: For a list of Kevin Glynn's publications, see http://kevinglynn007.wordpress.com/publications/

Kevin Glynn joined Massey in January 2013.  He is author of Tabloid Culture: Trash Taste, Popular Power, and the Transformation of American Television (Duke University Press), and coauthor of Communications/Media/Geographies (Routledge), and Shifting Nicaraguan Mediascapes (Springer, forthcoming).  He received his Ph.D. from the Media & Cultural Studies Program in the Department of Communication Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he studied media theories, histories, audiences and industries under John Fiske, Lynn Spigel, Julie D'Acci and Michele Hilmes.  Prior to joining MU, he was Associate Professor at the University of Canterbury, where he co-founded and coordinated Aotearoa New Zealand's only degree program in Cultural Studies.  His areas of research concentration are media & cultural studies, television studies, media convergence, digital cultures, new media, popular communication & culture, and media geographies & globalization.  In addition to his books, his work has appeared in many anthologies and leading international journals, such as Television & New Media; Cultural Studies; Camera Obscura: Feminism, Culture and Media Studies; Gender, Place and CultureInternational Journal of Cultural Studies; Communication Studies; Continuum: Journal of Media and Cultural Studies; Comparative American Studies: An International Journal; Antipode: A Radical Journal of Geography; Geopolitics; and others.  His recent publications have examined Indigenous peoples' media and globalization, digital media and convergence culture, popular and political cultures of the Americas, decolonial struggle in the new media environment, and intersections between media & cultural studies and geography.  His current research project, "Geographies of Media Convergence: Spaces of Democracy, Connectivity and the Reconfiguration of Cultural Citizenship," is supported by a grant from the Marsden Fund of the Royal Society of New Zealand (2013-2016) and involves collaborators at the University of Edinburgh, the University of California-Santa Barbara, and the University of Texas-Austin.  It explores Indigenous media practices; media convergence; and intersections between popular culture, politics, cultural citizenship and the media.
