Pablo J. Boczkowski

Pablo J. Boczkowski (Ph.D., Cornell University, 2001) is AT&T Research Professor; Director of the M.S. in Leadership for Creative Enterprises program; and Co-Director of the Center for the Study of Media and Society in Argentina. His research program looks at the transition from print to digital media, with a focus on the organizational and occupational dynamics of journalism and examined through a comparative lens. He is the author of three books, one edited volume, and over twenty-five journal articles and fifty conference presentations. His current projects include an edited volume Remaking the News (joint with Chris Anderson), which is under contract and under review at The MIT Press; a book monograph on the demise of print journalism as a window into understanding how social institutions decay; and a large-scale account of the dynamics of media and cultural consumption in contemporary Argentina. He is an avid soccer fan and, like his compatriot Francisco, never loses faith on his beloved San Lorenzo de Almagro.
