Events in March.

Hello from snowy Jönköping where the views are dreamy even if I am secretly freezing my butt off in the -13*C cold. These days when I walk home from campus, I hum Christmas tunes to myself because it feels cozy.

March is going to be a marathon of speaking events, between my ongoing fieldwork in various parts of Sweden. If you happen to be in town, it would be great to catch you: Continue reading Events in March.

Talks in October 2017.

Moshimoshi folks!

How are you doing? It’s that time of the year where All The Good Things are happening. I’m going to be talk-marathoning (6 talks at 4 events) for the next two weeks before I head back to my glorious sunny Perth end-October. If you’re interested, here’s where I’ll be and what I’ll be up to. If you are in the area, it would be cool to casually bump into each other and hide away over hot chocolate and icecream.

See you when I see you!

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. (Yes the grading did take that long!) I still have mixed feelings about graduation because four years of research was literally casually commemorated in a five-second walk on stage to shake the hand of an important-looking academic in front of a bunch of strangers. To me, the real fun was the honour of getting to graduate with my good friends – it was a bumper crop of five anthropology PhDs this time – and spending precious time with all the people I miss and love. So yes, all the officialdom of postgrad life is done and dusted, I have been Lord Voldemort once more, and my DECRA clock has begun!

Moshimoshi folks! It’s conference season!

Here’s a roundup of all the talks (six talks in five cities, to be exact) that are happening this June and July from the wishcrys factory of brain.

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.
