About me

Hi! I’m Elinor Carmi, originally from Tel Aviv, but now live, teach, play, write, think, imagine, dance, and try to find something proper to eat in London.

I’m a digital rights advocate, feminist, researcher and journalist who has passion for critical perspectives on technology, digital rights, and data politics. I have been working, writing and teaching on deviant media, internet standards, (cyber)feminism, sound studies and internet governance.

Currently I am a Postdoc Research Associate in digital culture and society, at the Communication and Media Department, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Liverpool University, UK. I work with Professor Simeon Yates on several projects:

  • Me and my big data: developing citizens’ data literacies” Nuffield Foundation project.
  • “Ways of Being Digital” The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) project.
  • “Beyond the multiplex” The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) project.

Before academia, I worked in the electronic dance music industry, was a radio broadcaster and music television editor. I also wrote a book about the Israeli Psytrance culture, called TranceMission in 2013.
