Biography

Dr. Peterson-Salahuddin's research focuses on the culturally specific ways marginalized communities, most often Black women, femmes, and queer folks engage with mass and digital communications technologies to seek information, produce knowledge, and build community, as well as ways the infrastructure of these technologies help these communities to overcome or continue to replicate systemic barriers to equity.

Her research has been published in the peer-reviewed journals Critical Studies in Media Communication, New Media and Society, and Social Media + Society. Chelsea received her MA and Ph.D. in Media, Technology, and Society from Northwestern University, and her BA in Political Science and Media Studies from Vassar College.
