About Annette M. Taylor

Dr. Annette Taylor's scholarly interests focus on media law, workplace issues, and popular culture. She teaches classes on journalism, public relations, media writing, and the law. Students in her courses can look forward not only to gaining important knowledge and skills necessary to communicate news and information accurately and effectively to the public, but also to learn First Amendment freedoms and sound ethical principles in the practice of journalism and public relations. She has served the department for many years in the important role of internship coordinator, where she guides students in setting educational and professional objectives that will enhance their internship experience and help them develop their career and academic goals.
Annette's scholarship has been published in the Journal of Popular Culture and Mid-Atlantic Almanack, as well as in books such as Dressing in feathers: The construction of the Indian in American popular culture and Reader in intrapersonal communication: Processes and social cognition. She has also published in widely read popular outlets and in public relations publications such as the Dayton Daily News, Dayton Voice, Huber Heights Courier, U.S.A.F. Internal Talk. As a testament to the work she has done in the classroom, her students have had considerable success publishing in local and out-of-state papers. Her work has been recognized with UD's Faculty/Staff Service Learning Award (1999) and the Society of Professional Journalists' national Presidential Award for Distinguished Service (2000).
