Welcome to the research and teaching site for Kim A. Brillante Knight.  Kim is currently an Assistant Professor of Emerging Media and Communication at the University of Texas at Dallas. Her research interests center on the ways digital culture affects negotiations of power and formation of identity, particularly for marginalized groups. She teaches classes on digital media theory, race/class/gender/sexuality in networked environments, viral media and maker movements, and wearable media. In the Spring 2015 semester, she is teaching Digital Textuality at the graduate level. In addition, she is supervising several capstones and continuing work on multiple PhD committees. Her research projects include a book on Fashioning Circuits, the WomenLikeYouand.me (coming soon!), and continued work on a book manuscript entitled Media Epidemics: Viral Structures in Literature and New Media. She also continues work on her blog on gender and media, The Spiral Dance. For more information, see her Curriculum Vita.
