Carleton Pathway Podcast – Studying Geek Culture with Dr. Benjamin Woo

As an associate professor in the School of Journalism and Communication, Benjamin Woo researches popular media industries and audiences with a focus on contemporary “geek” or “nerd” subculture. Currently, he is the director of the Comic Cons Research project, a co-investigator on the What Were Comics? Project, and heads Carleton’s new Research on Comics, Con Events, and Transmedia Laboratory.

In episode five of the Carleton Pathway Podcast, Benjamin shares his story on his research and explains the value of asking questions. We discuss studying comic books and comic con subcultures, asking curious questions and taking chances to follow your passion.
