Education: PhD American Culture Studies, Bowling Green State University
Andrew Famiglietti is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Emerging Media and Communication. He studies how both intellectual property and creative labor are shaping and being shaped by digital systems for storing and communicating information.
Both his research and teaching focus on the ways digital systems of production, and the cultures that have emerged alongside these systems, are changing the way we create and structure knowledge.
He is especially interested in the culture, history, and political economy of Wikipedia, the phenomenon of Free and Open Source Software, and related experiments with commons-based information production.
After earning his PhD in American Culture Studies from Bowling Green State University, he was one of the Georgia Institute of Technology's Brittain Postdoctoral Fellows before joining the faculty of EMAC in the fall of 2011. He currently teaches classes on new media writing, critical approaches to new media, and the history and culture of hackers and hacking.
