Scholarship and Service:

Professor Gregg's research and scholarship focuses on media production, audiences, and media history. In 2017, he and his colleagues won the National Communication Association’s Charles H.

His work has been published in Communication Monographs, the Journal of Popular Culture, Death Studies, and the Journal of Homosexuality, and he was a contributor to the book Mass Media Effects: Advances Through Meta-analysis. He has a co-written chapter in the book Michael Moore and the Rhetoric of Documentary. Recently, Dr. Gregg has written an entry in the SAGE Encyclopedia of Communication Research Methods on “Parasocial Communication.”

His scholarship on teaching and learning includes publications in Teaching Media Quarterly and the Journal of Media Education.

He has participated in conferences for the National Communication Association, the Kern Conference in Visual Communication, the International Communication Association, and the American Culture Association.
