My name is Julia DeCook (PhD) and I am currently an Assistant Professor of Advocacy and Social Change in the School of Communication at Loyola University Chicago.

I am also a senior fellow with the Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right and a fellow with the Institute for Research on Male Supremacism.

My research areas, broadly, are in digital culture, online social movements, masculinity and race, mis/disinformation, collective action and identity, and knowledge production.

In my work, I employ digital research methods and traditional qualitative methods; as well as discourse analysis. To frame my research, I use theories and approaches from anthropology, media studies, cultural studies, STS, communication, and sociology (specifically, social movement studies).
