Coming up with the first sentence of a website is hard these days! Of course there is the cliché, “Welcome to my place on the web,” but seriously, how dated is that now? How about I just give you the pertinent facts –
I’m Dr. Jason Cain, an assistant professor in The Meek School of Journalism and New Media at The University of Mississippi. I teach classes related to media writing and media research. Occasionally, I get to do the courses related to music business as well, which is fun because my background is as a musician. When it comes to research, I like to investigate why we choose to share and consume the information that we do on social media. I also continue to have an interest in privacy, personal information, and intellectual property.
On this site, you can find links to things about courses I teach, a bit more about me, a blog for when I have the occasional musing about things mass communication related, and a tab for internship links.
