Amber Johnson

Saint Louis University
Asst Professor
St Louis, MO
Amber Johnson is an Assistant Professor of Intercultural Communication at Saint Louis University. A scholar/artist/activist, much of Dr. Johnson’s work hinges on defining the language, exigency, and aesthetics of a social movement. Her research and activism focus on performances of identity, social movement, and social justice in digital spaces. Her artistry as a mixed media artist involves working primarily with metals, recycled/reclaimed goods, photography, poetry, and paint to interrogate systems of oppression.

Dr. Johnson’s academic research merges qualitative and rhetorical research design in the areas of identity, sexuality, performance and digital media. She is an award winning scholar, including the Golden Anniversary Monograph Award for her research on black masculinity and the performative possibilities of social media. She has published articles in several journals including, Critical Studies in Media and Communication, Text & Performance Quarterly, Liminalities: A Journal of Performance Studies, and Communication Quarterly. Her forthcoming book, Messy Intersections: Navigating Cultural Terrain blends poetic narrative, autocritography, and photography.

Her current research focus is a visual and written research project that investigates social justice activism from the Black Power Movement to the Black Lives Matter Movement through archived stories, photographs, reports, and re-created art works titled Moving Forward, Looking Back: A Journey to Justice from Civil Rights to Black Lives Matter. In this project, Dr. Johnson combines all of her artistic and scholarly talents into a visual exhibit that illuminates parallels between the movements, identifies the need to redefine social justice, and generates dialogue about transforming our communities.
