Jeanna Sybert is interested in the ways visual artifacts and trends in the media are leveraged rhetorically in the contemporary political moment. Primarily, she is concerned with the changing ways politicized images enter and circulate throughout the digital public sphere, and how these images can be appropriated, repurposed, or perverted in ways that inform or shape public discourse.
Sybert researches topics within the areas of journalism studies, rhetoric, visual communication, and memory studies.
Before joining the Annenberg community, Sybert received her B.A. in Communication & Rhetoric and Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh.
Jeanna Sybert is a doctoral student at the Annenberg School for Communication.
