This multi-purpose blog currently focuses on analysis of the state of fundamental freedoms in the digital age. Earlier posts reflect my professional and academic research into press freedom and community journalism during my Knight Foundation Fellowship, which combined a Master’s of Arts from the University of Alabama and an internship with The Anniston Star. My research focused on mobile media devices for news consumption, freedom of speech in American journalism history, and adoption of media technologies by religious organizations, among other research topics.
