Things are official, so I wanted to announce that my husband, Sean Duncan, and I will be starting as assistant professors at Indiana University this fall. I will be in the Department of Communication and Culture, and Sean will join the Learning Sciences program. I’m particularly excited about joining an interdisciplinary program, with fantastic colleagues, that brings together film and media studies with rhetoric and performance and ethnography studies. My mixed methods dissertation seems quite at home in that context. I’m also eager to be part of a campus wide community of people doing exciting research around media technology and its roles in our lives.
We’ll be moving to Bloomington this summer. My family couldn’t be happier that we’re staying in the midwest, and the thrill of finding academic positions together can’t be overstated. We feel very lucky that things worked out for us as well as they did.
