Media culture, media governmentality, algorithmic governmentality, neoliberalism, biopolitics and affective biopower
Anne's research field is critical inquiry and her specific focus is on media culture, brand identity and the impact of market-driven governance on concepts of 'self' and political citizenship. Her most recent research includes analysis of the way prevailing algorithmic coding systems structure and manipulate individualised online experiences.
Anne is happy to supervise topics related to her own area of research which focuses on critical analysis of the politics of media culture and examines, for example, the role of social media and the impact of digital culture more generally on understandings of self and identity.
