“My interest in this field of intellectual endeavour is situated at the intersection of geography and media and cultural studies. In particular, I am interested in the ways in which digital social networks and other convergent media, including Google Earth, Facebook and Twitter, are shaping everyday experiences of space and place in dynamic and complex ways and the potential of these technologies for forging social transformation and new modes of cultural citizenship, particularly among marginalized populations in the global South and elsewhere.”
