Jeremy David Johnson studies digital rhetoric in its various forms, including algorithmic culture, social platforms, networked social movements, and video games. He is particularly interested in how networked social structures shape the forms and consumption of social and political rhetoric. His dissertation project, defended in January 2018, examines how algorithms shape political engagement and social change through Google search, YouTube videos, and Facebook news and moderation. Other projects analyze bots in the 2016 election, networked memorials for Nelson Mandela, and algorithmic memory in at the September 11 Memorial and Museum. Jeremy is a former Center for Democratic Deliberation dissertation fellow, and a current Center for Humanities and Information doctoral fellow.
