Research Interests:
Professor Casteline’s research interests include the intersection of media, religion, and culture; media aimed at children; the application of rhetorical analysis and discourse analysis to mediated communication; and media ecology.

Her dissertation, "Media and Religion in the Ghanaian Pentecostal Diaspora," examines religious media production by Ghanaian Pentecostal pastors as they seek to carve out a space for themselves in the American religious landscape. The project represents a critical reconsideration of how religious media production function as more than just means of evangelical propagation, but also as key tools in the process of identity formation and social positioning in diaspora. Professor Casteline has also published in the area of children’s media.
