Why has TV storytelling become so complex?: A journalistic take

I was recently invited by The Conversation to write something for their site exploring some of the arguments of my new book for a general audience. I like reading The Conversation to see academics writing in a journalistic voice (something that some are better at than others) and support their embrace of CreativeCommons licensing and open republishing. ... read more »

“As Fixed as a Bottle Entangled in a Mess of Sea Vegetable”

… I’m trying to steer clear of rabbit holes these days in order to get a book done, but this [ev-ent-anglement] seems different somehow. Like the time spent reading, learning, listening will be rewarded differently. But it also feels all the more dangerous for that.

Tamsyn Gilbert at New Criticals kindly invited me to write a piece about the changes in networked new media and feminist scholarship about it for the section of the publication called Lady Justice.

Visual Research Methods 2014

I had to do a little Internet research but it turns out that Fall 2014 was my sixth iteration of Visual Research Methods, taught once a year at CGU since 2010. The course changes as do I, as does the Internet, academia, and the visual.

Starting reflections on running and curating a small art gallery….

I started this blog 8 years ago in 2007, and in that time it has gone through many different identities – the main one being musings for when I was doing my PhD.  Since finishing the PhD in 2010 the blog has waned somewhat, and I have struggled to keep it sustained. ... read more »
