Dr. Davisson in the news

This summer, Assistant Professor of Communication Amber Davisson has been in the news!

On July 2, National Public Radio interviewed Dr. Davisson for an article about the presidential election and fan fiction. Dr. Davisson is an expert in digital communication, politics, and popular culture. As Dr. Davisson explained to NPR, “We’re talking about voters who have a really emotional attachment to candidates,” much like people are fans of Star Trek or Britney Spears.

About a month prior to that on June 14, Keene State College’s Office of Marketing and Communications interviewed Dr. Davisson for an article about her new co-edited book on digital ethics and how she teaches students about digital technology. For example, Dr. Davisson said, “We wanted to develop a book for the classroom. We really focused on controversies and case studies, to spark class discussion.”
