Nadia Kaneva is Associate Professor in the Department of Media, Film, and Journalism Studies at the University of Denver.  She holds a PhD in Media Studies from the University of Colorado at Boulder, an MA in Advertising from Syracuse University, and a BA in Journalism and Mass Communication from the American University in Bulgaria.

Nadia’s research draws on critical theories of communication and culture to explore the construction of national and gendered identities in post-socialist Europe. She is particularly interested in critical perspectives on promotional culture and is currently working on a book about the media’s role in advancing consumerism in Eastern Europe.  Nadia is the editor of “Branding Post-Communist Nations: Marketizing National Identities in the New Europe” (Routledge, 2011), and author of multiple scholarly articles and chapters.  This year she is also guest-editing a special issue on post-socialist femininities for the journal Feminist Media Studies, forthcoming in 2015.
