Research/Areas of Interest

Charles Soukup’s research and teaching emphasize the role of technology and media in the formation of culture and community. His research has examined virtual communities on the World Wide Web, the discourses of film and television, and digital popular culture texts. He is currently exploring the experience of mobile technologies (e.g., MP3 players, cell phones, notebook computers, and digital television) in the individual’s everyday life. He teaches courses concerning new media technologies, qualitative methods, intercultural communication, and persuasion. Further, Charles has developed research methods for postmodern experiences that blend aspects of ethnography, semiotics, rhetorical criticism, and phenomenology.
