Dr. Timeka Tounsel will join our faculty in Autumn 2022. Dr. Tounsel’s research and teaching examines Black (digital) popular culture, audience studies, and feminist media studies. Specifically, her research considers the stories that mass media tell about Black women, how Black women imagine themselves, and the consequences of these narratives. Dr. Tounsel’s book, Branding Black Womanhood: Media Citizenship from Black Power to Black Girl Magic, will be released in June.
