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.
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).
