His subsequent research has explored the social construction of new media technologies, including historical phenomena (such as wireless telegraphy) as well as emerging forms of mobile media. In 2006, he co-edited an anthology of academic studies of cell phones, The Cell Phone Reader, and in 2012, he edited an updated anthology titled The Mobile Media Reader.
Dr. Arceneaux spent the Spring 2014 semester in India on a Fulbright-Nehru Research Grant. While there, he was affiliated with the Centre for Media, Culture, and Governance at Jamia Millia Islamia, located in New Delhi. His project in India examined the government’s policy of spectrum allocation for mobile phones. As in many developing countries, the number of phones in India has grown at a phenomenal rate, and the country is now the second largest market for the technology.
Dr. Arceneaux’s research has been published in the Journal of Broadcasting and Electronic Media, American Journalism, New Media & Society, Technology & Culture, and Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly. Prior to joining academia, Dr. Arceneaux produced websites for the ABC, CBS, and Fox television networks.
