Global Urban Wilds

Locative and Mobile Media, Digital Narratives, Sustainability, Environmental Change

From 2016 — 2017, I was the Postdoctoral Research Fellow for the SSHRC-funded Insight Grant, “Greening Narrative: Locative Media in Global Environments” ($387,500 CAD), housed in the Department of English at Concordia University, Montréal, Canada. Under the supervision of Principal Investigator Professor Jill Didur, this research creation project develops a locative media application called “Global Urban Wilds,” which investigates how narratives in locative media can defamiliarize user assumptions about the environment, preservation, and sustainability in urban spaces.

In addition to developing this app, I created and manage the project website and I helped to organize an international speaker series on locative media projects.
