Greg Kelley has been teaching at the University of Guelph-Humber for over 10 years. Kelley specializes in folklore, humor studies, narrative, and other forms of mediated popular culture. He has published widely on media-related topics of folklore and popular culture. He is the recipient of the GHSA Staff/Faculty Award in Media Studies in 2010, the Faculty Appreciation Award in 2012, and the Faculty Mentoring Award in 2015. Formerly the President of the Hoosier Folklore Society, editor of *Folklore Forum* and *Midwestern Folklore*, he now sits on the editorial board of *The Journal of Folklore Research*. Kelley’s current research interrogates the fluid interplay between production and audience reception, between forces of cultural domination and cultural resistance. He explores the ways in which folklore operates as a mechanism of intervention—or resistance—in that interplay.
