Cynthia Stohl has been a member of the Department of Communication since January 2002. Prior to joining the UCSB faculty she was the Margaret Church Distinguished Professor and Head of the Department of Communication at Purdue University.

She is concerned with the relationships among internal and external communication processes as they are manifest in global collaborations. Her early research focused upon communication networks and issues of quality in global manufacturing groups and has extended to exploring the changing communication partnerships amongst workers, management, communities, and civic and multinational organizations. Her most recent work addresses a diversity of network and collective action organizations in the global context focusing specifically on the role of new communication technologies in contemporary organizing. She is a Co-Principal Investigator on a National Science Foundation Grant titled “ Technological Change and Collective Association: Changing Relationships Among Technology, Organizations, Society, and the Citizenry” and an co- investigator on a Marsden Foundation grant studying new media and the Global Social Justice Movement in New Zealand.
