My work about race, gender, sexuality and new media has appeared in the journals New Media & Society, Women’s Studies Quarterly, Theory in Action, American Journal of Public Health, and Health Promotion and Practice. In 2011, a paper I wrote about race, incarceration and masculinity won the Sarah Mazelis Paper of the Year Award given by the Society of Public Health Education. My most recent book, Cyber Racism (Rowman & Littlefield, 2009) is widely used in college classrooms. My next book, Google Bombs, Cloaked Sites and Astroturf: Propaganda in the Digital Era is forthcoming from Routledge.
In addition to my work as an academic, I’ve also worked in the Internet industry as a Senior Producer at Talk City where I supervised a staff that produced live online events for Fortune 500 clients. Since 2007, I’ve maintained a scholarly blog (http://www.RacismReview.com) with Joe R. Feagin (past president of the American Sociological Association). In 2010, Forbes Magazine named me one of “20 Inspiring Women to Follow on Twitter.” You can find me there at: @JessieNYC.
