Kate Zambon, an assistant professor at UNH, earned her Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania (2017) after completing her bachelor's degree in Italian and German studies from Vassar College (2007) in Poughkeepsie, New York. Her research in global media studies focuses on the cultural politics of nationalism and migration in the media. Her current research project analyzes how the rejection of multiculturalism across Europe has paved the way for the rise of "integration" as a new paradigm for managing transnational and multiethnic populations. Other areas of interest include the political economy of representations of culture in global media flows including international sporting events, news and entertainment media. Zambon's research takes a historically grounded and critical approach to analyzing media, connecting representation in news and entertainment media to political and economic logics as they develop over time. Her work also involves the development and promotion of multimodal approaches to scholarship. She is a founding member and former director of CAMRA Penn, an interdisciplinary group dedicated to conducting and supporting research that goes beyond the written word, including digital, film, audio and web-based scholarship. Her research has been published in Media, Culture & Society, the International Journal of Communication and Popular Communication.
