Rosemary Clark-Parsons

Doctoral Candidate

Rosemary Clark-Parsons is a Ph.D. candidate at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. Her research examines the dynamic relationship between contemporary feminist social movements and media in the United States, focusing specifically on popular media’s appropriation of feminist rhetoric, digitally mediated feminist activism, and the do-it-yourself media tactics of grassroots feminist collectives in Philadelphia, her home city. Clark-Parsons' work pairs traditional and new media studies with feminist and social movement theories and draws on ethnographic, textual, and discourse analyses. At Penn, Clark-Parsons is a student organizer for the Media Activism Research Collective, an interdisciplinary network of students, faculty, and activists working at the intersection of social movements and media. She holds an M.A. in communication from the Annenberg School and a B.A. in Media and Communication Studies and English from Ursinus College.
