Brief Bio: 

Gloria Boone is a Professor of Communication at Suffolk University in Boston, Massachusetts. I teach classes in Advertising, New Media, Information Architecture, Web Design, Women's Communication and Protest and Reform Rhetoric.

My current research is on a book focused on current and future developments in new media and social media for different demographic groups. I enjoy examining the latest developments in technology and how people respond and manipulate technology for their own needs and desires.

Some of my publications on technology include:

2009, April. New Media Strategies for Non-Profits. Cape Cod.

I have written books on Rhetorical Communication and Business Communication.

As a classically trained rhetorician and as a New Media expert, I believe the arts and the humanities inform developments in web design, technology and communication.
