Biography

Research Interests

Michele White studies media and visual culture, with a research emphasis on the theories that can be developed for analyzing new communication technologies and the representations and political implications that occur with the Internet. Her research uses feminist, queer, and anti-racist approaches to address popular and academic claims that individuals are equally empowered by digital media. Some of her current research concerns are the gendering of interfaces, Internet beauty cultures, the feminist blogosphere, and how the interconnected experiences of touching and feeling are conveyed through new media. She is currently working on Touch/Screen/Theory and Rendering Men: The Internet and Masculinity.
