Research

I'm a second year PhD student in the Department of Media & Communications at the LSE under the supervision of Professor Myria Georgiou and Dr Shani Orgad. I'm interested in voice, recognition and cultural citizenship in refugee participatory artwork projects at various sites across the UK. Using a mixture of qualitative methodologies I aim to investigate the operation of voice and recognition at an individual level, as acts of voice, and at the community level, as counterpublics. Key theorists include Axel Honneth and Jacques Rancière. 

Keywords: voice, recognition, cultural citizenship, participatory art, acts of citizenship, counterpublics, alternative media
