Antoine Haywood's primary research focuses on understanding transformative and resonant effects that occur when people voluntarily participate in communal learning and media-making practices. His ethnographic and practitioner inquiry approach to understanding social and cultural effects generated by community media-making processes is informed by his fifteen years of professional practice in the public, educational, and governmental (PEG) access media field. Antoine also studies prevailing forms of collaborative and solutions-oriented journalism, political-economic conditions of local media ecosystems, and precarious relationships that marginalized people have with digital communication technology. He holds a B.A. in English from Morehouse College and an M.A. in Media Studies from The New School. Antoine is a proud native of West Palm Beach, Florida.
Antoine Haywood is a doctoral student at the Annenberg School for Communication. His research interests include community media, digital inequality, and local media ecosystems.
