Amy Johnson is a PhD student in MIT's HASTS program, where she studies language and technology. Her research examines online parody in English, Arabic, and Japanese as a nexus for creative play; activism and social critique; complex, individualized meaning-making; freedom of speech issues; and media-based communities.

As a fellow at the Berkman Center, she will be investigating what happens when online parody is taken (too) seriously. Particularly, censorship, media ideologies, and the misidentification of satire.
