Mark Crispin Miller is a professor of Media, Culture and Communication at New York University, where he has taught courses on media (including cinema) and propaganda since 1997. (He has not been allowed to teach his propaganda course since 2020, when he came under fire for having urged the students in that course to read through all the scientific literature on masking.) He is the author of many books—including Boxed In: The Culture of TV, The Bush Dyslexicon: Observations on a National Disorder, and Fooled Again: The Real Case for Electoral Reform—and scores of essays and articles. He also was the editor of the Forbidden Bookshelf, a series of important works that had slipped out of print, and now are available again as e-books. Since the COVID crisis started, he has given dozens of interviews, on podcasts all around the world. A recipient of grants from the Guggenheim Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation and Ingram Merrill Foundation, Miller maintains a daily list-serve, and a Substack column, both called News from Underground.
