Dr. Stein researches and writes about communication law and policy, political communication, and alternative and public media. Her RTF courses include: Communication, Law and Power; Media and Communication Law; The Social Documentary; Alternative Media; and Communication Technology and Society.

Her recently released book, titled Speech Rights in America: the First Amendment, Democracy, and the Media, explores the failure of current understandings of speech rights to protect democratic communication in the U.S. media. She is currently working on an edited collection, titled "Making Our Media: Global Initiatives Toward a Democratic Public Sphere," about grassroots attempts to transform the policy and practice of information and communication media around the world.
