About Elinor Carmi
Elinor Carmi is a digital rights advocate, feminist, researcher and journalist who has been working, writing and teaching on deviant media, internet standards, (cyber)feminism, sound studies and internet governance. Her second monograph will be out in early 2020, titled Media Distortions: Understanding the Power Behind Spam, Noise, and Other Deviant Media, published on the Digital Formation Series at Peter Lang Publishing.
Currently, Carmi is a postdoctoral research associate in digital culture and society at Liverpool University, where she is working on several Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and Applied Health Research Centre (AHRC) projects. She is also part of the Nuffield Foundation funded project, Me and My Big Data: Developing UK Citizens Data Literacies.
At the moment Carmi is working on two special issues for Theory, Culture & Society with Brittany Paris about redesigning time, and for the Internet Policy Review with Simeon Yates about what digital literacy means today. Before academia, Carmi worked in the electronic dance music industry for various labels and was a radio broadcaster and music television editor for almost a decade.
In 2013, she published a book about the Israeli Psytrance culture, titled TranceMission: The Psytrance Culture in Israel 1989-1999 (Resling Publishing). She also tweets @Elinor_Carmi.
