The American Journalism Historian Association announced Karlin Andersen Tuttle as the incoming editor of the Intelligencer, the organization’s electronic newsletter. Andersen Tuttle, an AJHA member since 2019, recently earned a dual-title PhD in mass communications and women’s, gender, and sexuality studies from Penn State.

“I am excited to take on editing The Intelligencer and continue its work highlighting members’ achievements, research, and pedagogy,” Andersen Tuttle said. “The annual AJHA convention created such a supportive space for me as a graduate student to present my research and learn more about the field. I plan to use my position to continue to grow that community and encourage future scholars.”

Before pursuing a PhD, Andersen Tuttle wrote for a daily newspaper in Washington state, The Spokesman-Review, and worked in marketing for a regional library system. After moving to Pennsylvania, she worked in public relations and marketing at Penn State where she wrote and edited a twenty-eight page quarterly magazine covering faculty and graduate student research. She currently serves as the editorial liaison for the journal Mass Communication & Society.

Her dissertation, “Your Trusted Friend: Untold Histories of Five Christian Women’s Magazines, 1974-2023,” included reviewing over six-hundred magazine issues, archival material, and oral history interviews with the magazines’ editors and staff members.

Andersen Tuttle also holds an MA from Penn State in Media Studies and a BA in English with minors in journalism and editing, publishing, and design from Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington.
