About Juli Hinds
Dr. Juli Hinds has been teaching at Medaille since 2016. She holds a Ph.D. in communications from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Currently a full-time faculty member, her courses range from public speaking, communication theory, gender and communications, media seminar, introduction to film, media and culture, to radio production. Dr. Hinds also serves as the advisory to the WMCB radio station.
Dr. Hinds remains committed to an engaged pedagogical teaching approach, where the focus centers on the creation of a more meaningful and holistic classroom experience. Dr. Hinds encourages students to bring their own unique experiences and knowledge to classroom discussions. Not only does this inspire a more inclusive classroom, but an environment where students can appreciate their own worth and expertise. For instance, studying the ideological contradictions present in shows such as Orange is the New Black, functions as a starting point for engagement and reflection on how issues of power, privilege, and identity become constructed through the business of new mass media, and as such, play a role in our identity as subjects within society.
Before her Ph.D. Hinds enjoyed a rich career on-air in radio and television. Currently, Dr. Hinds is an on-air talent for 96.1 the Breeze, a division of Townsquare Media. This position provides Dr. Hinds the unique advantage of inviting students to visit and tour the station. Additionally, the relationship Dr. Hinds shares with Townsquare Media affords Medaille communication students the opportunity to access multiple internships.
