I continue to be research active, following retirement from my previous position at the University as Professor of Media and Communications.
Currently, I am pursuing my interests in non-representational theories and the study of quotidian cultures, and my next book has the working title: What are Non-Representational Theories For?
Non-representational theories and the study of quotidian cultures, focusing on ‘the everyday skills that get us by’.
My background is in research on the everyday uses of new media technologies, where my work became associated with an approach known as ‘non-media-centric media studies’.
Translations of my work into other languages include two monographs published in Italian:
- Media, Luoghi e Mobilità (Franco Angeli, 2017)
- Il Consumo dei Media: Un Approccio Etnografico (Il Mulino, 1998)
