Pezanoski-Browne offers a case study of her path from a student of the Critical Studies MA to her current role as the Executive Director of the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC.org) to illustrate how academic research can directly shape how we envision our spaces, communities, and work, and why art & theory students are uniquely equipped to create change.
Alley grew up in a family dedicated to the arts, education, and social justice, which led her to focus on Film/Video and Sociological Studies at Northwestern University where she earned a B.S. in Communications. For the next decade, she worked as a producer and coordinator for various documentaries, and also worked on arts/media projects and events, with a focus on fundraising and community-building. She received her master’s in Critical Theory & Creative Research from Pacific Northwest College of Art and had a stopover in Hong Kong as a Fulbright Scholar. Alley is currently the Executive Director of the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC.org). Her work has been shown on PBS Independent Lens and published in the Leonardo Music Journal and Bitch.
