Hello. My name is Stacey Copeland.

An award-winning media producer and Joseph-Armand Bombardier (CGS) Ph.D. candidate at Simon Fraser Universitys School of Communication in Vancouver, Canada. Copeland received her Master of Arts from the Ryerson York joint Communication and Culture graduate program where she studied with a focus on radio production, sound studies, media culture and gender studies. She completed her Bachelor of Arts in Radio and Television Arts from Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson) with a minor in English and a specialization in audio production for radio, music and film. It was during her Master’s work that Copeland co-founded FemRadio, a Toronto, Canada-based feminist community radio collective. Copeland is currently based out of Toronto, Canada as a visiting researcher at Toronto Metropolitan University. Some areas of scholarly interest include feminist media, oral/aural histories, sound archives, media history, phenomenology of voice, sensory ethnography, and cultural heritage.
