Welcome to the personal website of Brooke Erin Duffy, Ph.D.
I'm an assistant professor in the Department of Communication at Cornell University, where my research and teaching explore the interrelationships between media, culture, and technology. My specific areas of interest include digital and social media; gender, feminism, and identity; media and cultural production; and the impact of new technologies on work and labor.
News and events
My new book, (Not) Getting Paid to Do What You Love: Gender, Social Media, and Aspirational Work, was recently published. It chronicles the experiences of fashion bloggers, beauty vloggers, and aspiring digital influencers as they work to "make it" in the online economy.
