But updating this site has been on my to-do list for quite some time. You see, it was in quite a state.
I suppose the biggest change relates to what this site is actually all about. It started life as a research blog for my MA project and dissertation and morphed into something else again when I finished and contemplated how digital sociology could speak to the tech industry.
In the middle of last year I was offered a PhD studentship that I couldn’t turn down (I’m really grateful for it), so I’m back at Goldsmiths in the first year of a PhD, looking into our everyday habits with visual social media. I’m having a blast, I really enjoy doing and sharing research. You can read more about the project in the research project section.
So in terms of this website, it means that it’s swinging firmly back into a research blog. You can expect to read about:
- Methods I’m thinking of using
- Reflections on theories I’ve been thinking about
- News about fieldwork
- News about workshops, conferences, events I’ve been to.
I’m excited to be able to return to research and return to writing, thinking and speaking about ideas around digital sociology. Thanks for joining me!
