Associate Professor Luke Goode

BA (Hons) , PhD

Biography

I research, teach and write about new media technologies. I study the opportunities and the risks they open up for us as a society and as individuals. My work challenges some of the popular media narratives about what digital technology may be doing to us, especially the rising tide of anxiety around 'digital natives'. I am also interested in the ways communication technology features in popular visions of the future (both fictional and non-fictional) and how these visions shape the public imagination about the kind of society we want or expect to live in.
