Professor Mark Andrejevic FAHA researches the social, cultural, and political aspects of digital media technologies, with a particular focus on surveillance, monitoring, and social control. His work engages with the societal consequences of automated forms of social sorting, the spread of online disinformation, and emerging technologies for the collection and processing of personal information. He is particularly concerned with the patterns of ownership and control that shape the development and functioning of the digital media economy, and the implications of these communication and information technologies for democratic values and commitments. He has also studied the portrayal of surveillance in popular culture, and the relationship between the political economy of television and that of online media. He speaks and reads French as a second language.
Mark will Chair the Rights and Revolutions panel.
