Professor Emeritus


Caron, André H.

Research expertise

I specialize in mass media and new and emerging technologies, and my research interests focuses on exploring how technologies and people co-evolve in vast hybrid networks. My research and publications deal with “mobile culture” in everyday life, the cascade effect and the interrelations between technologies and new communication rituals and interactions. My other research interests include formative and summative research for youth and media, broadcasting policies, and the political and cultural appropriation of media.
