Vision Statement

My research explores the implications that changes in the media landscape, including those generated by corporate social media and social networks such as Twitter and Facebook, have for the ways media theorists create, perform and circulate research and knowledge. It pays special attention to the medium theorists themselves employ most frequently: the linearly written, print-on-paper codex text. It asks, "to what extent can the ongoing changes in the media landscape that are shaping our memories and consciousness be understood by subjectivities that continue to live, work and think on the basis of knowledge instruments originating in a very different epistemic environment?"
