Suzanne completed her Ph.D. at the University of Southern California, while
simultaneously serving for two years as a lecturer in the Film + Digital Media Program at
the University of California, Santa Cruz. Her research builds on intersections in fan
studies, cultural studies, and theories of new media. Her dissertation, titled
"Revenge of the Fanboy: Convergence Culture and the Politics of Incorporation,"
offers a timely survey of the politics of participation within convergence culture as it
makes an intervention into the utopianism that has characterized fan studies and, more
recently, studies of new technologies and convergence culture. In addition to her
doctoral work at USC, Suzanne has served as an editor of the open-access, peer-reviewed
online journal Transformative Works and Cultures, has been honored as a HASTAC Scholar,
and has taught courses on such subjects as Transmedia Storytelling, Fandom and Geek
Culture, and an Introduction to Video Game Studies.
