Biographical details

Zeena Feldman’s research investigates intersections between communication, technology and everyday life. Her work is motivated by questions around how digital technologies interface with traditionally analogue concepts – for instance, work, subjectivity, romance, conflict, self-care, cooking and eating. Her work has also traced the birth and evolution of the contemporary ‘sharing economy’. Previously, she proposed the key concepts passion-based social networking sites and templatisation – two theoretical frameworks aimed at locating the power and limits of social media participation.

 

Zeena’s work has appeared in Information, Communication & Society; TripleC; Cultural Policy, Criticism & Management Research; OpenDemocracy, and on BBC Radio 3 and 4. Her edited collection, Art & The Politics of Visibility (IB Tauris) was published in 2017 and she is currently working on a monograph, Belonging in a Social Networking Age. She also leads the Quitting Social Media project.
