Bio/Research

My research is generally concerned with the intersection of media, technology and identity within the context of religious, social and cultural movements. Earlier research fell within the growing field of religion and media scholarship. My own work in this field explored diasporic Haitian Vodou, new media and technology, and Vodou in popular culture.

While I continue to be active in the field of religion and media, I am currently working on two new projects: one explores ubiquitous computing; the other looks at afrofuturism — focusing on social networking arising out of images of black technologized subjectivity. The first stage of the latter project focuses on transnational networks forged through diasporic hip hop communities and is funded by a SSHRC Insight Development Grant.
