Professional experience
The relationships among media, society, culture, politics, social movements and public discourse have long fascinated Vincent Doyle. Originally from Canada, he began his university studies in political science, but soon gravitated towards communication and cultural studies because of his interdisciplinary interests. “I study communication,” he says, “because it helps me to understand how we are all products of history, language, and the institutions that shape our lives, even if we are not always aware of it.” With knowledge and understanding, Prof. Doyle believes, comes the capacity to make better decisions, along with the opportunity to develop a sense of belonging and accountability to an intellectual community that nourishes our human desire to improve our lives and the world around us.

Prof. Doyle is a Fellow of the Sexuality Research Fellowship Program of the U.S. Social Science Research Council and the recipient of two top paper awards from the International Communication Association. Making Out in the Mainstream, his book about the media activism of the US-based Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) was published by McGill-Queen’s University Press in 2016.
