Maudsley Learning podcast episode #10: Social media and YOU

12/08/2020

Dr. Niall Docherty has recently completed his PhD at the Centre for Critical Theory, University of Nottingham, and will be pursuing his postdoctoral research within the Social Media Collective, Microsoft Research New England. His thesis examines the material and discursive construction of Facebook’s ideal users, linking normative designations of “healthy” usership to neoliberal histories of governance through habit. Niall has a BA in Politics and an MA in Cultural Studies from Goldsmiths, University of London, specialising in political theory, Modern philosophy and governmentality studies.
