Biography

Hello! My name is Emily Scroggins (she/her) and I was born in Opelika, AL.  I received my B.A. in Communication Studies and English from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2020 with a minor in Film and Media Studies. I'm currently a second-year M.A. student in the Film and Media Studies areas of emphasis! I am broadly interested in the intersection between rhetoric and media as well as investigating the power of media representations specifically looking at representations of the American South. My thesis focuses on how new television shows are changing viewer perceptions of and transform how folks understand the South. When I'm not in class, I like to avidly consume films or television shows, attempt (read: fail at) painting, and hanging out with my sweet cat Milo!
