research

My areas of research interest and graduate supervision are the political economy of communication; communication and social change; labour and collective organizing in the media and communication industries; autonomist marxism; digital and communicative dimensions of debt; and call centres. My book, Language Put to Work: The Making of the Global Call Centre Workforce, has won the 2018 Canadian Association of Work and Labour Studies' book of the year award and the 2018 Canadian Communication Association’s Gertrude J. Robinson book of the year award. I collaborate with Greig de Peuter, Nicole Cohen, Kate Oakley and Marisol Sandoval on a SSHRC-supported research project, Cultural Workers Organize. I have translated numerous works by Italian scholars, including Gigi Roggero’s The Production of Living Knowledge: Crisis of the University and Transformation of Labor in Europe and North America. I serve on the Steering Committee for the Morgan Centre for Labour Studies at SFU, and am an editorial board member of the journals Studies in Political EconomyWork Organisation, Labour and Globalisation, and tripleC: Communication, Capitalism & Critique.
