Dr. Michael Lupro

Intermedia art, tourism, geography, and popular culture studies are my primary fields. San Francisco State, Portland State, and Bowling Green State universities have, respectively, provided my training. Popular music, film, urbanization, mediation of genocide, and faux-journalism have been the topics of my research and writing and my current research looks to Rocketman, Major Tom, and Sun Ra to intervene in the development of space tourism. I am a founding member of AmeriCorps and Culture Club: The Cultural Studies Scholars’ Association.
