I am an Assistant Professor at Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH where I teach courses in digital media, online communication, and digital rhetoric. My research sits at the intersection of internet studies, fan studies, rhetoric, and political communication. My current project examines fan-based citizenship, civic actions that are grounded in fan values and identities, investigating cases like Harry Potter,football, LEGO, Star Wars, and the VlogBrothers’ YouTube channel. I tweet from @hincklet.
