Kelsey Cameron is a scholar of media industries with an emphasis on emerging and non-traditional media forms. She holds a PhD in Film and Media from the University of Pittsburgh, and her research interests include media distribution, critical technology studies, and regulation and policy. Her book project, Ultimate Witness: Police Body Cameras and the Production of Truth, argues that police video is a media industry: a profit-generating machine that only incidentally and intermittently serves the goal of anti-racist accountability. Prior to coming to the University of South Carolina, she was an assistant professor at Regis University in Denver, CO, where she taught a range of classes in media theory and practice.
