Sydney in December.

Moshimoshi folks,

I am giving a few talks at various events in Sydney this December. If you’re in town, please come by to say hi!

I’m presenting preliminary findings from two new projects for the first time – one on young people and grief on the internet, and the other on discursive networks on Tumblr. I’m also presenting more of my work on Influencers, this time focusing on the economy of fake goods. If you’re working in similar areas, I’d love to chat. Continue reading Sydney in December.

Moshimoshi folks,

I can’t believe it’s already the end of September. This month has been hectic but fulfilling.

I finally attended my PhD Convocation ceremony, 13 months after I had submitted my thesis and seven months after I had passed.

Feel free to beep if you’d like to read any pre-prints or WIP versions of these. As usual, I’ll be haphazardly snapping the conferences on-the-go at @wishcrys. Continue reading Procrastiprogress updates from the cave IV.

Procrastiprogress updates from the cave III.

Moshimoshi folks!

How has your May been? This month has been pretty tough on me, but we all learn to get by and do life as it comes our way. I bring you more serious scholarshipping and exciting updates from my bubble.

Also, after much nudging by my favourite @jilltxt, I have taken to Snapchat to share research ramblings on the go. See you on @wishcrys. Obviously, I’m still trying to work out my sticker-to-excitement ratio. Continue reading Procrastiprogress updates from the cave III.
