Dr Selena Nemorin is a research fellow at the Department of Media and Communications for the VIRT-EU research project: Values and Ethics in Innovation for Responsible Technology in Europe. VIRT-EU is an interdisciplinary and cross-university European Commission Horizon 2020 project which runs from 2017-2020.
Selena’s research focuses on critical theories of technology; surveillance studies; data/IoT ethics, and youth and new media/technologies. Her past work includes research projects that have examined the uses of new technologies in digital schools, educational equity and inclusion, experiences of internationally educated female teachers and their integration into K-12 schools, as well as human rights policies and procedures in post-secondary institutions. Her dissertation (2015) explored the ethical implications that arise from the ways consumers are constructed discursively in neuro-cultural market research settings.
She has recently co-authored an ethnography of schooling in a digital society: Everyday Schooling in the Digital Age: High School, High Tech? The book offers an analysis of findings from her recent work on a three year research project that addressed the long-standing question of why digital technologies have largely failed to have a consistent impact on the core processes of schools and schooling.
