Amy Nyberg, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Communication
College of Communication and the Arts

I joined faculty of the Department of Communication in 1993, coming from the Ph.D. program in Mass Communication at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My background as a professional journalist enables me to share real-world experience with students in my writing, reporting and editing courses. In addition, I teach a variety of theory and research courses, including Media Criticism and Women and the Media.

My research area is comic books. My book Seal of Approval: The History of the Comics Code, was published in 1998 by University Press of Mississippi. My scholarship also includes a number of articles and book chapters on comic books, ranging from a study of comic books commemorating September 11th, published in Media Representations of September 11, to an exploration of the ethical dimensions of the postwar comic book controversy, published in Comics as Philosophy.
