David R. Wheeler, Ph.D.

Journalism professor and freelance writer

Hello, fellow travelers, and thanks for visiting my site. Things you should know about me: I'm a journalism professor at the University of Tampa, as well as a freelance writer for CNNThe Atlantic, The Week, The New Republic, and The New York Times.

My Atlantic article "Do Students Still Have Free Speech in School?" is required reading at Harvard's Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society.

In my spare time, I'm a photographer.

Oh, and I'm obnoxiously proud of the time I was a guest on BBC Newsday.
