Dr. Brooke Duffy is an Assistant Professor in Temple University’s Department of Advertising and a faculty member in the School of Media and Communication’s Mass Media & Communication doctoral program. Her research interests include media industry convergence, advertising and cultural production, gender/feminist studies of media, and online consumer culture. In addition to co-editing Key Readings in Media Today: Mass Communication in Contexts (Routledge, 2008), she has published several journal articles and book chapters and presented more than a dozen peer-reviewed conference papers. Dr. Duffy is currently working on two book projects. The first peels back the curtain on the women’s magazine industry to show how producers are redefining their industries, their roles, their audiences, and their products in an era of media convergence. She is also co-authoring a book on Media Industries with Joseph Turow as part of Routledge’s “Key Ideas in Media and Cultural Studies” series. Dr. Duffy completed her Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication in 2011.
