Welcome to my site, EvanKropp.com. I am a Media Scholar and Professor. I received my Ph.D. in Mass Communication from the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. My Dissertation, chaired by Horace Newcomb, focused on the influence of Social Television activities on television production practices and content. Using a case study approach, I investigated the popular show Bones through interviews, observations and textual analysis research. While studying at UGA, I taught several undergraduate courses in Grady’s Telecommunications Department and worked for three years as a Research Assistant at the George Foster Peabody Awards, the most prestigious and oldest electronic media awards in the world.
I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communications. I also teach and develop courses for the Communications graduate program at Southern New Hampshire University’s College of Online and Continuing Education.
I use this site as a portfolio and online CV/Resume. I also use the blog section to post work and comment on items of personal and professional interest. My students can use this site to view samples of past student work, find information about their class in progress and access links to additional class resources. I hope you will find something of interest within these pages and check back often as I continue to add new information. I appreciate your interaction and feedback.
