I'm Bryan Behrenshausen, a doctoral candidate in the Department of Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where I work on cultural studies of informatic technologies. I try to think conjuncturally about how the concept of information gets articulated differently across multiple discourses and domains. Here's my blog.


I've earned a master's degree in Communication from the University of Maine at Orono and a bachelor's degree in Speech Communication from Millersville University of Pennsylvania. Here's my CV.


My research on video gaming has appeared in journals like Games and Culture and New Media & Society. I'm also Managing Editor for the journal Cultural Studies. Here's my ORCiD.

I care deeply about software freedom, and on the Web I write and podcast about open source projects.
