Roger Stahl (PhD, Penn State University) is an associate professor of Communication Studies at the University of Georgia who studies rhetoric, media, and culture. His work has in large part focused on understanding propaganda and public relations as they relate to state violence, conflict, and security. His most recent book, Through the Crosshairs: War, Visual Culture, and the Weaponized Gaze (Rutgers UP, 2018), traces the history of the gun-camera and examines the ways that the public has been increasingly invited to picture war through the weapon’s eye. His previous book Militainment, Inc. (Routledge, 2010) maps the military-entertainment complex. Dr. Stahl has been published in numerous academic journals such as The Quarterly Journal of Speech, Rhetoric and Public Affairs, and Critical Studies in Media Communication. In a more public capacity, he has produced documentary films for the Media Education Foundation, including Through the Crosshairs (2018), Returning Fire (2011), and Militainment, Inc. (2007) He has been featured in such venues as NPR’s All Things Considered, The Guardian, and Al Jazeera.
