Hey, folks! My name is Zack Furness and I am Communications Program Coordinator and Assistant Professor of Communications at Penn State University, Greater Allegheny. 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 Planet, Bitch Magazine, and Souciant. I was also a longtime editor and contributor to Bad Subjects, one of the pioneering publications on the Internet, and I’ve played in punk bands since 1997 (I currently sing for BARONS). Lastly, I’m a resident of Pittsburgh, PA, which is my hometown and also the place where I earned my graduate degrees.
