Scott Kushner on the History of Crowd Control

Scott Kushner, Technology and Culture

Joining us this week is Scott Kushner, Associate Professor of Communication Studies at the University of Rhode Island's Harrington School of Communication and Media.  His scholarship and teaching explore the ways overlooked media give shape to our everyday encounters with culture.  His work has appeared in venues including Space & Culture, Convergence, and New Media & Society. We sat down with him to learn more about how a crowd becomes an audience - the topic of his most recent paper, Controlling Crowds: On the Technological Management of Entertainment Audiences, published in the journal Technology and Culture.
