I am an advocate for the smart use of new media - social networking, blogging, wikis - in arts and education. I've been an editor on online academic journal thirdspace, and I've blogged about Carmen for the English National Opera, about the film festivalling for Little White Lies, and about feminist culture for Shebytches. Currently, I'm involved with four sites harnessing the power of information technology to promote intellectual and cultural community:
I am the site moderator and blogger for this wide-ranging, wiki-style resource and network for readers, writers, publishers and translators of world literature. Think of it as Facebook for... well, books!
It's a queer literary and arts journal, but it's also a community. The blog, edited by Eric Karl Anderson, provides a continuous overview of the best in queer culture -- and an opportunity to get involved as a reviewer.
I am the education consultant for the Sally Potter Archive, a digital interactive research resource. With draft screenplays, call sheets, costume designs, screen tests and contracts on napkins, this is the ideal site for film makers, students, and fans to see how films really get made.
I blog for the Re:frame Collection, the 2.0 reboot of the National Video Archive. Access, discuss and learn about rare independent and experimental films as part of an online community.
