Stephanie Edgerly | Medill, NU

Edgerly is a professor with a specialization in audience insight. She is also the associate dean of research at Medill. Her research explores how features of new media alter the way audiences consume news and impact engagement. Stephanie is particularly interested in the mixing of news and entertainment content, how individuals and groups create and share news over social media, and how audiences selectively consume media. Recent projects have explored why people don't consume news and the varied ways that people make sense of the larger media environment.
