Robert Rabe, Ph.D.

Welcome to my home page.  I am an associate professor of journalism and mass communications at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia.  I teach reporting and writing,  mass communication history, media and cultural studies, and a number of other special topics courses and seminars.  My primary research interest is the history of mass communication and most of my scholarly work involves topics related to journalism and politics in the 20th century.  I have done other research in the history of advertising and the development of new media technologies.

The page contains information related to my teaching and research projects at Marshall, as well as links to resources for students and scholars interested in journalism, mass media, and history.
