My latest news

The anthology that I co-edited with Pablo Boczkowski and Kirsten Foot, is now available from MIT Press. It is called Media Technologies: Essays on Communication, Materiality, and Society. This was a heroic effort, I assure you. And the collection is really good! Email me if you want a copy of the introduction.

I have been invited to be a featured speaker at two conferences this coming June. First, at the University of Amsterdam for the conference on Social Media and the Transformation of Public Space, then at the University of Konstanz in Germany, for theInternational Conference on Algorithmic Cultures. Europe. So good.

I am currently on leave from Cornell, so that I can enjoy a six-month Visiting Researcher stay with MIcrosoft Research, New England, and specifically with the impressive team of scholars that are the Social Media Collective. I will be here through the end of June, before returning to Ithaca. I am working on completing my book on social media platforms and their policies for Yale University Press, and further developing my research on the sociology of algortithms. And steaking the collective brain power of these people, for my very own!!!
