Brittany L. Peterson (Ph.D., University of Texas at Austin) is an associate professor in the School of Communication Studies and the Director of E-Learning for the Scripps College of Communication at Ohio University.
Dr. Peterson aims to understand (and upend assumptions surrounding) the communicative construction of membership in organizations. Her scholarship investigates varied membership experiences including: involuntary, “high stakes” and traditional volunteers, as well as stigmatized membership with an eye toward agency, ownership, tension, identity, narrative, empowerment, and community. Dr. Peterson’s work has been published in peer-reviewed journals including Management Communication Quarterly, Communication Monographs, Health Communication, Western Journal of Communication, Communication Quarterly, Non-Profit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Communication Education, and Journal of Applied Social Science as well as in edited books.
