Dr. Houck, worked extensively on how the media shaped the narrative of the kidnap and lynching of Emmett Till, resulting in Emmett Till and the Mississippi Press (2008, with Matthew A. Grindy). That scholarship continues with his work on the Emmett Till Memory Project, a digital app for smart phones designed to tell the story in the 21st century.
