I am a linguistic and sociocultural anthropologist-in-training interested in questions of technology and new media. Specifically, my research seeks to understand how models of sociopolitical engagement are enregistered and transcend cultural and national boundaries through digital media by looking at K-pop. My work treats K-pop not as a known or given quantity or cultural object, but as a productive, metastable precipitate of transductive techno-social processes.
