Whitney Phillips

A scholar situated between the humanities and social sciences, Whitney Phillips draws from science and technology studies, critical theory, and media history to explore the context and consequence of mediated communication, with a focus on the ideologies, assumptions, and stories that shape what we observe on our screens. She is the author of several books on digital culture and politics. Most recently, she and Ryan M. Milner published You Are Here: A Field Guide for Navigating Polarized Speech, Conspiracy Theories, and Our Polluted Media Landscape (MIT Press, 2021), which they subsequently, and very loosely, adapted for middle grades readers. That book, forthcoming with Candlewick Press in early 2023, is titled Thinking Ecologically about Social Media. In the Fall of 2023, Phillips will be joining the faculty in the University of Oregon’s School of Journalism and Communication.
