Associate Professor, Concordia University
Martin French is an Assistant Professor with the Department of Sociology & Anthropology at Concordia University in Montréal, Canada. Martin’s research examines the social dimensions of technology with an empirical focus on communications & information technology (CIT). It emphasizes the broader social and political contexts of CIT, focusing especially on risk, surveillance, privacy, and social justice. Current projects examine the intersection between big data and risk, privacy and personal health information, epidemiology and the law, and 'informatic practice' in different organizational settings.
