Professor Kenix explores the representation of politically marginal groups in the news of mass and alternative media.
Qualifications & Memberships
My research gives specific attention to the agenda setting function of both mass and alternative media in the process of social change. I am very interested in how the media portray different groups and how that representation informs how societies shift.
Important note for prospective graduate students: I am currently accepting graduate students only if their proposals closely align with my ongoing research projects in the areas listed above.
