My name is Christina Blankenship, and I'm a Ph.D student from Greensboro, North Carolina. I received my Undergraduate degrees in English and History (2010 - 2014), my M.A. in Communication Studies (2014 - 2016), and will be focusing on Mass and Intercultural Communication in the C&J program.
Currently, my research utilizes television, video games, and other forms of new media as her primary mediums and objects of study. Using Marxist Criticism and Critical-Cultural studies, I examine the space(s) between the 'real' and 'mediated' worlds. I'd love to explore early 2000s and/or Post-9/11 media during my Ph.D.
