Susan [institutional affiliation? Lightspeed University perhaps?],
I am returning to complete my Doctorate in Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths College after a period of research
in the industry as well as a period of care for a dying parent. My research is
undertaken part time within the constraints
of work and family life, very much in the tradition of British Cultural Studies. I
a history of the emergence of Intenret in culture and a cultural anthropology of this emergence.
I ran the first web site devoted to broader cultural issues. It doubled (doubles) as a
way in to research the field as well host institutions, with remarkable outcomes.
I am presently involved in a self-funding
post internet research exercise to sharpen
up my social science methodological skills. This involves
an empirical examination of the question:
'tragedy of the commons or a tragedy of capital' and is carried out among common resources that fluctuate over time. I have found that no tragedy of the commons occurs.
I like horseback riding (most weekends), impromtou skiing and winter fun,
winter activities in general, log rolling,
walks through the snowy woods, bracing winds, contemplating the many, many different patterns of snowflake, I like Russian women
I enjoy teaching, reading, writing, and revolution. A labour of love.
I have a fantastic daughter aged 10.
I live in Toronto, where I am implementing long term plans for commercial and public service online publishing with former colleagues and with new collaborators, and
of course I spend time over in the UK.
I am single and I am looking, but I am very picky. Any pics, 'susan'? hmmm... [I think this list needs a resource containing
research interests and institutional locations of members and contributors, as well as a
photo of each member. I mean, identity and
bodies kind of matter don't you think?].
