Personal profile

Research interests

My research explores the sociology of creative scenes and subcultures, and has examined visual art, music, podcasting, radio, fashion, film and fandom from this perspective. I am particularly interested in the aesthetics and politics of independent, diy, participatory and public media cultures. My research has been published in outlets such as New Media and Society, Television and New Media, Senses of Cinema, Overland and The Routledge Handbook of Global Cultural Policy (2018).
