The doctoral dissertation include discursive and critical approaches to social media and identity, digital labour, consumer resistance, and online community dynamics from a cultural perspective. The research articles examine death, memorialization, and mourning rituals online; myth and religion/spirituality from a sociological perspective; fan collectives and fan memorialization practices; as well as gender and identity in the blogosphere. A lingering, yet persistent, interest lies with the discursive construction of the worker/employee ideal in the current labour market context, particularly how this is used within the wider economic discourse to convey and blur various ideologies.

My research approach is a discourse-analytic one; I have a background in theoretical linguistics and English linguistics
