Joseph Isaac is a doctoral student in Rutgers' Communication department on the Media Studies track. After his graduation from Penn in 2014, he received a Fulbright Postgraduate Scholarship to Australia, researching the implications of street art and graffiti as cultural heritage in Melbourne. His current research explores how representations of knowledge are shaped by visual culture, with specific focus on disinformation and misinformation. Before beginning his Ph.D., Isaac worked as a Research Assistant with the Penn Cultural Heritage Center and managed the Fact Check team at TED Conferences.
