Recently returned from presenting her research on journalism funding at the 2019 Congress of the Humanities at the University of British Columbia in early June, Patricia Audette-Longo joins the School of Journalism and Communication on July 1, 2019 as an Instructor II in a one-year term position teaching both undergraduate and graduate journalism students.

Audette-Longo is already a familiar face to Carleton students. She taught a range of courses as a contact instructor in the past two years, including JOUR 2202, the second-year digital toolkit course, and JOUR 1003, a course that explores journalism for non-journalism first-year students.

She has also recently worked as a part-time editor and reporter at National Observer and spent time in 2018 managing the online publication’s digital engagement, digital advertising and social media.

From a background in political, energy and environment reporting at the Edmonton Journal between 2005 and 2012, Trish completed a Ph.D in Communication Studies at Concordia in 2018. Starting in 2014, supported by a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship, she explored how Indigenous communities in northern Alberta and British Columbia amplify messages about the environmental effects of oil extraction and transportation by examining media coverage, social media and media sites such as protests, healing ceremonies and pipeline hearing testimonies. 

She is currently in the process of developing her thesis “Oil Sands Entanglements: Indigenous Media and Movements on the Front Lines of Canadian Industrial Development” into a book. 

In addition to her PhD in Communication Studies from Concordia University, Trish has an MSc in Media, Communication and Development from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and a Bachelor of Journalism from Carleton University.
