Frances Corry is a doctoral student at USC Annenberg interested in new media histories and new media historiography. Specifically, her research focuses on online archiving, preservation, and memorialization, and the reasons why some online pasts are saved and others are not.
She graduated cum laude from Barnard College with a BA in English, where her honors thesis “Changing Times” explored how the New York Times encountered the popular debut of the Web in the mid-1990s. Additional writing and research has explored how piracy affects the citation record of academic journals; video games in museum/art contexts; and feminist use of digital video remix. Prior to joining USC, she directed press and digital media efforts at architecture and design firm Ike Kligerman Barkley, the Hudson River Park Trust, and NYU's Rudin Center for Public Transportation.
