Biography

I am Associate Professor/Senior Lecturer and teach modules related to social media, subcultures and cultural theory.

My research area is the political economy of digital media and in particular the commercial Web, with an emphasis on digital labour. I have published extensively about various commercial platforms including eBay, Facebook and Google. With colleagues Ken Hillis and Michael Petit, I have explored  the commercial search industry, published in the book Google and the Culture of Search (Routledge, 2013). I am also author of Feminism, Labour and Digital Media: The Digital Housewife (Routledge, 2016) applying Marxist feminist theories of domestic work to understand the practice of consumer labour and with Susanna Paasonen and Ben Light entitled #NSFW: Sex, Humor and Risk in Social Media (MIT Press, 2019). My book Digital Labor (Polity Press) is due out in June 2022.

I was recently co-PI of a IRC/AHRC-UKRI UK-Ireland Collaboration in the Digital Humanities Networking project: Intersections: Feminism, Technology and Digital Humanities and am co-I on the Full Stack Feminism project which emerged from this network.

I am available to supervise research in all dimensions of online culture, gender and media, and questions of labour and cultural work.

My media expertise is in user experiences of social media, the politics of the commercial Web, online sexuality, and gender issues relating to work in digital media industries.

Research Interests

My research focus is the critical analysis of the political economy of commercial digital media using various theoretical frameworks, but with an emphasis on feminist and Marxist approaches. My expertise is in the area of digital labour and cultural work, ranging from studies of social media users to platform workers and beyond. I also explore the cultural dimensions of user activity on social media as well as articulations of gender and sexuality in online practices.

Current doctoral supervision:

Chloe Eaton: Concept of Family in Irish Family Vlogging
Tugce Bidav: Creative Digital Labour Practices of Irish and Turkish YouTubers
Michael Kurzmeier: Hacktivism and Public Memory (passed - Jan 2022)
