Personal profile


Dr Earvin Charles Cabalquinto is a Lecturer in the School of Media, Film and Journalism. His research interest lies in the intersection of migration studies and mobile communication research. He often deploys a critical mobilities lens in examining how the use of mobile devices and networked communications platforms impacts identity, social and familial relationships, and a sense of belonging across a diverse range of contexts. Significantly, he engages with the entanglements of mobile practices and social structures in shaping mediated interactions on the move. 

Earvin currently leads the ‘Digital mobilities in Asia’ section under Culture Media Economy’s Asian Cultural Economies at Monash University. He is also a research affiliate of the Population, Migration and Social Inclusion Focus Program at Monash.
