Research Topic

My research is concerned with practices of network mapping as a form of knowledge production in conspiracy theorist milieus.

Background

Broadly speaking, I am interested the media practices, cultural production, and politics of digital subcultures. I have followed these overlapping concerns in my MA dissertation – written at CIM – on the topic of sadness, synthetic intimacies, and music (playing from another room); in my work on the study of far-right online political subcultures with the Amsterdam-based research collective OILab; and – naturally – onward into my current postgraduate research.
