Molly Hankwitz, Ph.D.
My current research engages human/social relations--mobile and digital communications environments-- at the intersection ofform, culture, history, and experimental and independent media. Ongoing public space in changing urban technoculture, i.e. the Internet of Things, the "surveillance state", and hybrid "media ecological" wireless/data provides a platform of concerns through which development of cities can be reimagined and intervened upon. Re-formation of the web, the user-interface, mobile tools and social communications applications; ongoing social uses/responses to pervasive communications technologies, race, class and gender--"place-based" communications and the future imagination of cities in an era of neo-liberal dominance, are of particular interest.
