Lyndsey Beutin is Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. Her research focuses on the racial politics of communication and social justice. Her current book project explores how campaigns against human trafficking reproduce anti-blackness in the name of ending “modern day slavery.” She earned her PhD in Communication from UPenn and was a pre-doctoral fellow at the Carter G. Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies at University of Virginia.

At McMaster, Lyndsey’s teaching focuses on centering histories of dispossession, resistance, and racial justice within core communication concepts such as technology, globalization, liberalism, capitalism, and sovereignty.
