About

My name is Patrick Johnson and I am currently a doctoral student in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Iowa.

When I’m not being a teacher/scholar

In my free time I probably can be found reading random works of narrative nonfiction, watching way too many horror films (or rewatching countless Disney and Marvel movies), being inundated with the news, making fun of and commentary about politics, consuming far too much pop culture on social media, getting way too involved in college football and basketball, and bouncing around and singing to whatever song ends up playing on my Spotify (which usually is a healthy dose of today’s top hits, classic rock, heavy metal, and show tunes).
