Professor and Associate Dean of Graduate Programs and Research Andrew Calabrese’s research emphasizes the relevance of critical social and political theory in explaining issues of media and citizenship, media policy at national and transnational levels and uses of media for social movement activism. His publications focus on the role of media in 20th and 21st-century concepts of civil society and the public sphere; the politics and activism related to media reform, communication rights and social justice; social mobilizations that rely on digital communication; and uses of digital media in nonviolent civil disobedience. His recent research is about the relationship between media and food politics and activism, and related issues of public knowledge, welfare, safety and risk.
From 2008 through 2014, he held several leadership positions in managing the transition from CU’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication to the development of the College of Media, Communication and Information, including four years as associate dean.
