ABOUT

Hey, folks. My name is Zack Furness and I am Associate Professor of Communications and Communications Program Coordinator at Penn State University’s Greater Allegheny campus. I’m the author of One Less Car: Bicycling and the Politics of Automobility (Temple University Press, 2010), editor of Punkademics (Minor Compositions & Autonomedia, 2012), co-editor of The NFL: Critical and Cultural Perspectives (Temple University Press, 2014), and I have written for a number of edited collections, journals and non-academic publications including Punk PlanetBitch Magazine, and Souciant. I was also a longtime editor and contributor to Bad Subjectsone of the pioneering publications on the Internet, and I’ve played in punk bands off and on since 1997 (most recently I sang for BARONS). Lastly, I’m a resident of Pittsburgh, PA, which is my hometown and also the place where I earned my graduate degrees.
