About Roxane Coche

Roxane Coche –Dr. C to her students– is a sports journalist turned university professor. Born and raised in France, she worked as a freelance sports reporter and producer in Paris for three years, collaborating with several TV networks. Her main employer was Eurosport, the European leader in sports media. She worked on major events either from Paris offices (2008 Soccer European Championship, 33rd America's Cup, and 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver) or on site (several Roller-In-Line Hockey World Championships, 2008 US Open and 2010 Australian Open). Coche is still involved with the professional industry. She recently covered the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Academically, Coche completed a professional-track master's degree in Bilingual Journalism and a research-track master's degree in English with an emphasis on American civilization, both at the University Paris III Sorbonne Nouvelle. She then moved to the United States to obtain a Ph.D. in Mass Communication from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

She then spent a semester as a visiting professor at the Tecnológico de Monterrey in Guadalajara, Mexico, before becoming a lecturer at the University of North Georgia. Coche has now found a long-term academic home at the University of Memphis from Fall 2015 on.

Passionate about sports and gender equality, her research interests revolve around gender issues in sports media content, especially in online media, including social media. She has focused more specifically on Twitter, but would like to open up her research to more networks.
