Joseph Giomboni, ABD, is in the second year of a tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor of Communications in the Turock School of Arts and Sciences at Keystone College. I currently teach a variety of entry-level and advanced communication courses, including introduction to public relations, speech, interpersonal communication, screenwriting, mass communication and society, and research methods. I am also a doctoral candidate in Klein College of Media and Communication at Temple University.
The title of my dissertation is "Constructing the Ideal Public Relations Employee: Ambiguity and Identity in the Digital Economy." My research interests include digital and creative labor, internships, political economies of cultural production, crisis communication, and public relations theory. I will present my research that received a Top Paper Award in the Public Relations Division of the National Communication Association in 2019. I co-published a review essay on crisis communication in the Journal of Communication. As the Assistant Director of Public Relations at King’s College, Pennsylvania, for 14 years, I was responsible for managing social media platforms, writing news releases, media relations, writing profiles for the alumni magazine, and editing video projects.
