Research Subject and Interests

My current research focus draws upon literature from the field of digital studies looking at digital organology, as well as the fluid and ongoing debates in the digital humanities in order to develop an understanding of how annotation influences modes of seeing, understanding, analysis and interpretation of digital and datafied resources, with a particular focus on dance. My research looks into the role of the amateur in shaping knowledge economies, how dance can lead the way in the development of new epistemologies, and investigating the potential of dance in an era of digital networks.
