The collaborative research of MSUM professors Deneen Gilmour and Aaron Quanbeck, Mass Communications, is published in the fall edition of The Review of Communication.

Gilmour, assistant professor of print and online journalism, and Quanbeck, assistant professor of broadcast journalism, worked together researching convergence journalism practices and textbook content to write a cultural-critical analysis titled “Hegemony: Quiet Control Over Convergence Textbook Content.”

The article examines the growing trend of convergence journalism in American media; the corporate colonization of American society and how it subtly shapes textbook content and teaching materials.
