Welcome! This is the Website of Digital Media & Society Professor, Lindsay Ems
I am an Assistant Professor in the College of Communication at Butler University, where I teach courses in the Department of Communication and Media Studies.
I'm currently writing a book on the adoption (and rejection) of digital communication technologies among the Amish. I conducted fieldwork for this project starting in 2011. The book is under contract with MIT Press.
In 2015, I completed my PhD in the Media School at Indiana University.
I have also published research on Ethnographic techniques for studing technology non-users, Twitter use by protesters and social and mobile media use for public health communication among high-risk groups. Among other outlets, my research has been published in First Monday, New Media & Society and Media Culture & Society.
