Tyler DeAtley

Communication, Rhetoric, Digital Media


  • Research Interests: My research broadly focuses on the effects of late capitalism, but I am very interested in how the blurring of physical social space with digital space affects surveillance and counter surveillance resistance practices; mobilities; digital culture and memes; and how algorithms reify neoliberal subjectivity.
  • Hobbies:¬†playing and being in a dungeon master in Dungeons and Dragons, guitar, cooking, video games, memes are a hobby ok
  • Mentoring Philosophy: I think that each mentee deserves to made to feel fully supported, and that they are respected and cared for. I try to foster an atmosphere of comfortableness, earnestness, and honesty in our communication.
  • Mentoring Specialties:¬†academic skills, writing, time management, collaboration, teamwork, work/life/family integration, academic job market, working with advisors, first year experience, mental health, intersectionality, life skills, relationship management, preliminary/comprehensive exam, exploring Raleigh, critical and cultural theory/methods
