Explaining my research…

My main research interests lie in surveillance and in digital technologies more generally – all from a practical theological perspective.

In a nutshell, I am curious about the faith which our societies place in technologies as supposed solutions to relationship challenges across a whole host of levels and in a multitude of contexts. This integrates my explorations of citizenship, ecclesial communities and gadgets.

You can find explanations of my research for different audiences on these pages (check the menu above).

By developing an inter-disciplinary research network I am keen to facilitate critical enquiry into the surveillance of religious groups and those groups use of surveillance to monitor and orchestrate the behaviour of their own members.

I am open to enquiries for PhD supervision in practical theological investigations of digital technologies and, most specifically, of mechanisms of surveillance.
