Brooke Duffy is an Assistant Professor in the School of Media and Communication at Temple University, where she also serves on the faculty of the Media & Communication Ph.D. Program. Her research interests include media work and digital labor; gender/feminist studies of media; and advertising and promotional culture.

She is the author of Remake, Remodel: Women’s Magazines in the Digital Age (University of Illinois Press, 2013). This book explores the rapidly changing cultures, economies, and technologies of cultural production through an in-depth analysis of the women’s magazine industry. By revealing how executives, editors, and creatives are rethinking their processes and products in a new media era, Remake, Remodel contributes to critical debates about digital labor, participatory culture, hypercommercialism, and gendered work cultures.

She is currently working on a book about gender, cultural production, and technology, tentatively titled Labors of Love: Women, Creative Work, and Aspiration in an Age of Social Media. Drawing upon interviews with fashion and style bloggers, makeup vloggers, and participants in user-generated promotions, this project explores socially mediated forms of what she terms “aspirational labor.”

Dr. Duffy is co-editor of Key Readings in Media Today: Mass Communication in Contexts with Joseph Turow (Routledge, 2008). Her work has been published or is forthcoming in such journals as Critical Studies in Media Communication; Communication, Culture & Critique; and The Communication Review.

Dr. Duffy teaches courses on media and society, media theory, advertising, and research methods. She completed her Ph.D. at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania in 2011. She holds a B.A. from The Pennsylvania State University and a M.A. from the University of Pennsylvania.
