IMGP4921Bryce Peake
PhD Candidate – School of Journalism & Communication
University of Oregon

I am the Julie and Rocky Dixon Doctoral Fellow in Graduate Innovation at Intel Labs, and a PhD Candidate in Communication & Society/Media Studies at the University of Oregon. Broadly, my research and teaching focus on masculinity, the history of science and technology, and postcolonial sonic culture/s. I have published research on masculinity, technology, sound, and desire in Gibraltar; muzak and post-nationalist identity in Gozo; expertise and misogyny on English Wikipedia; and the queer, somatic dimensions of “the political” in the Toronto Zombie Walks. As a technologist, I’ve built the web infrastructure for the Fembot Collective; managed and modified the open-review system for Ada: A Journal of Gender, New Media, and Technology; built a feminist twitter chat bot to curb misogyny, racism, and homophobia on Twitter (sadly defunct because of new T&C); and am collaborating with feminists and activists in University of Washington’s Community Data Science workshop. My work has been supported by research and training grants from the Social Science Research Council,  the National Science Foundation, the University of Oregon, and Brandeis University. In my spare summer time, I am a gigging jazz bassist, composer, and arranger.
