During my sabbatical year, I plan to do many many things, including lots of reading. In terms of writing, the plan is to work on a project tentatively titled “Affected: failure, distraction and network media” exploring the affective dynamics of network media through moments of failure, analyses of social media addiction and distraction and the pedagogical challenges that the ubiquity of social media poses in a media studies classroom. Some of this will happen together with the wonderful Michael Petit. More to follow.
