Welcome to Elisabetta Ferrari
Elisabetta Ferrari will join the School in September as a Lecturer in Sociology (Digital Media). Her research looks at the social and political implications of digital media, with a specific focus on how activists make sense of the politics of digital technologies. She is currently writing a book on the technological imaginaries of radical social movements in Italy, Hungary, and the United States. She is also working on a project on the emergence of digitally enabled mutual aid activism in the Covid-19 pandemic. Before joining the University she was a postdoctoral fellow at the Digital Studies Institute at the University of Michigan and at the Center on Digital Culture and Society at the University of Pennsylvania. She holds a PhD in Communication from the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication.
