She received her Joseph-Armand Bombardier SSHRC-funded Ph.D. at Simon Fraser University’s School of Communication (Vancouver, Canada) with a research focus on the communication of queer feminist activism and aesthetics in radio and podcasting. Copeland’s work on sound, media and culture has been published in top-ranking journals, including Radio Journal: International Studies in Broadcast & Audio Media and the Canadian Journal of Communication. She has published in various edited collections, co-published open-access guides on academic podcasting and soundscape assessment, and actively works to produce publicly accessible sonic scholarship that bridges research and creative practice.

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. Some areas of research interest include media production and industries, cultural sound studies, media history, gender and sexuality, phenomenology of sound, and sensory ethnography.
