our systems are inhuman

We must strive to develop systems that prioritize the flourishing of the human mind, body, and spirit.

My name is William Moner and I am an Assistant Professor of Communication Design at Elon University teaching in the Interactive Media MA program — affectionately known as iMedia. I also teach courses in the Communication Design and Media Analytics undergraduate programs.

My most recent work is Redesigning Liberal Education (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2020), a co-edited volume with Phillip Motley and Rebecca Pope-Ruark.

I hold a PhD in Media Studies with a minor in Information Studies from the University of Texas at Austin, where I wrote a dissertation on the political economy of crowdsourced documentary platforms. Additionally, I hold a Master’s Degree in Multimedia Technology (2001) and a Bachelor’s Degree in Health Management Systems (1997) from Duquesne University.
