“The real purpose of these case studies is to remind everyone that cultural context really defines how anything is lived on the internet.” – Dr. Megan Lindsay Brown
This episode is brought to you in collaboration with Sprinkles and Confetti.
Today’s featured interview is with Dr. Megan Lindsay Brown. Along with Dr. Crystal Abidin, she is the co-editor of the brand new anthology Microcelebrity Around the Globe: Approaches to Cultures of Internet Fame, a collection of case studies about the culturally contextual experiences of microcelebrity.
Megan is Postdoctoral Scholar in the Office of Gender Based Violence at Arizona State University, USA. Her postdoctoral work examines the intersections of intimate partner violence and online abuse, such as online harassment. Her co-editor Dr. Crystal Abidin couldn’t join us for the chat but she is a Lecturer with the School of Communication and Creative Arts (SCCA) at Deakin University, Postdoctoral Fellow with the Media Management and Transformation centre (MMTC) at Jönköping University, and Adjunct Researcher with the Centre for Culture and Technology (CCAT) at Curtin University.
