Curriculum Vitae




Ted Striphas is a leading scholar in the fields of communication and cultural studies, whose research focuses on the relationship of technology and culture.  His award-winning book, The Late Age of Print: Everyday Book Culture From Consumerism to Control (Columbia University Press, 2009), examines the book industry's role in shaping US and global consumer cultures in the 20th and 21st centuries.  His next book, Algorithmic Culture, explores the role of computational processes in the sorting, classifying, and hierarchizing of people, places, objects, and ideas.

Striphas teaches graduate courses on the history and politics of mass culture; media theory (including theories of everyday life and the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari); cultural studies; and digital culture.  At the undergraduate level he teaches courses on media history, theory, and criticism.
