About Gregory T. Donovan, Ph.D.

GTDI’m an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication and Media Studies as well as an affiliate faculty member of the New Media and Digital Design Program, Urban Studies Program, and Urban Law Center at Fordham University. My research explores the mutual shaping of people, place, and proprietary media, and how to reorient such shaping toward more just and meaningful publics. I’m also a researcher at the Public Science Project, a founder of the OpenCUNY Academic Medium, and co-editor of Issue 5 of The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy: Media and Methods for Opening Education. I received my Ph.D. in Environmental Psychology with a doctoral certification in Interactive Technology and Pedagogy from the CUNY Graduate Center.
