Transd[e]uce is written and managed by Rich Potter, Assistant Professor and Chair of Literature, Communications, and Media at the American Jewish University in Los Angeles, California.

My general research interests include media and democracy, participatory and community media, communications policy in Latin America, public sphere theory, and participatory democratic organization. My dissertation examined the role of participatory media in Latin American socialism, with a primary focus on Venezuela.

Transd[e]uce provides a space for me to work through ideas and participate in communities of scholarship, practice, and activism.

I was unaware of Pablo Gee’s contribution to the Urban Dictionary when I chose this blog’s title, but I do appreciate the humor.
