My research deals with the ways in which everyday media practices are structured by various social forces, most notably social class. Drawing on the sociology of Pierre Bourdieu, my dissertation "Digital Distinctions" (2014) explores how class shapes the ways in which young men perceive, orient themselves and navigate in relation to digital media as part of everyday life. Subsequently, my research focus has somewhat shifted to the conditions and meanings of digital media practice in economically deprived families with children, as well as to issues concerning media and information literacy.
My teaching is primarily tied to various courses in media and communication studies, but I also do some teaching in other courses and programmes.
