Dr. Christopher J. Schneider

Author, Professor, Speaker

My research investigates the connections between media, culture, and technology, and how these contribute to changes in social interaction and social control. My intellectual and theoretical approach is interdisciplinary and includes perspectives consistent with criminology, sociology, cultural studies, law, and media and communication studies. Broadly speaking, my research has sought to understand changes in social reality and the human condition attributed to media. (My keynote address delivered at the 2017 Couch-Stone / Midwestern Sociological Society meetings can be read as a summation of the analytical approach used across my work).
