Overview

Ed Timke, Ph.D., is an instructor of courses on advertising, media, and intercultural communication in the Department of Cultural Anthropology and for the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative. He is also Associate Editor of Advertising & Society Quarterly, a journal focused on the role of advertising in society, culture, history, and the economy. Before Duke, Ed was a lecturer in the Media Studies Program at the University of California, Berkeley.

Ed examines the cultural, social, and political implications of advertising and media in society. His research focuses on the persuasive techniques and technologies that the advertising, marketing, and media industries use to represent and shape various identities and communities. He takes a transnational and critical-cultural approach using industry-based ethnographic research, in-depth interviews with practitioners, trade press materials, discourse analysis, and historical/archival research.

Ed completed his Ph.D. in the Department of Communication & Media at the University of Michigan. He holds a Master's degree in International and Intercultural Communication from the University of Denver as well as a Bachelor's degree in International Relations and French from Michigan State University.  

Ed has been noted for high-quality teaching and mentoring through several awards and nominations: Phi Beta Kappa Northern California Association Excellence in Teaching Award (nominee and finalist), University of Michigan Certificate of Recognition for Outstanding Research Mentor of the Year, Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor of the Year for the University of Michigan’s Department of Communication Studies, and Certificate of Achievement from the University of Michigan’s Council for Disability Concerns.

Most recently, Ed was recognized for being among the top 5% of instructors of undergraduate courses in the College of Arts & Sciences.
