Allison Page, Visiting Assistant Professor of New Media Studies, holds a BA in Music, French, and a minor in Women's Studies from the University of Iowa, and an MA and PhD in Communication Studies (Critical Media Studies) with a minor in American Studies from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

Her scholarly interests include race, digital media, feminist media studies, American studies, media and citizenship, critical theory, and histories of capitalism. Her research focuses on how U.S. media provide templates for racialized citizenship and subjectivity. In particular, she is interested in how emotion, produced by media's pedagogical use of the history of slavery, becomes a powerful site through which to shape and manage race.

Her publications include "'How Many Slaves Work for You?': Race, New Media, and Neoliberal Consumer Activism," published in the Journal of Consumer Culture; "Advance Your Freedom: Race, Enterprise, and Neoliberal Governmentality on From G's to Gents," published in Television and New Media; "The Haunting of Evidence," co-authored with Stephen Dillon and published in Cultural Studies/Critical Methodologies; and "'This Baby Sloth Will Inspire You to Keep Going': Capital, Labor, and the Affective Power of Cute Animal Videos," forthcoming in the edited collection The Affects and Aesthetics of Cuteness. She is currently working on a book manuscript preliminarily titled Pedagogies of Slavery: Race, Media, and Citizenship, and a co-authored project with Laurie Ouellette on reality TV programming on prisons.
