I have a background in comparative literature and a PhD in digital culture and communication. My recent research interests focus on reading practices and reading culture in digital contexts, relating to the digitization of the book as well as the increased online interactions between readers, authors, and publishers. My empirical approach is qualitative, seeking to understand our changing relationship with the artefacts, contents, and social/emotional processes of reading. I hope my research can contribute to the aims of the Action to understand the implications of digitization for readers, educators, publishers and other stakeholders, especially in relation to experiential and emotional aspects of reading.
I would especially like to be involved in projects having to do with investigations of the cultural conventions of reading and how these influence and are in turn influenced by digitization, and also projects concerning multimodal aspects of reading (reading as technology relation).
