Pablo J. Boczkowski is Professor and Director of the Program in Leadership for Creative Enterprises at Northwestern University. He obtained his Ph.D. in the Department of Science and Technology Studies at Cornell University in 2001, under the direction of Trevor Pinch. Prior to joining Northwestern in 2005 he was Cecil and Ida Green Career Development Assistant Professor of Organization Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Sloan School of Management. His research program looks at the transition from print to digital media, with a focus on the organizational and occupational dynamics of contemporary journalism and increasingly examined by adopting a comparative lens. He is the author of Digitizing the News: Innovation in Online Newspapers (MIT Press, 2004); News at Work: Imitation in an Age of Information Abundance (University of Chicago Press, 2010); The News Gap: When the Information Preferences of the Media and the Public Diverge (MIT Press, November 2013; co-authored with Eugenia Mitchelstein); Media Technologies: Essays on Communication, Materiality and Society (MIT Press, 2014; co-edited with Tarleton Gillespie and Kirsten Foot); and over twenty journal articles and fifty conference presentations. His current major project, undertaken jointly with his doctoral students Eugenia Mitchelstein and Ignacio Siles, is an ethnographic study of the demise of print newspapers in Chicago, Paris, and Buenos Aires, as a window into larger dynamics of institutional decay.
