I recently published a book on freelance journalists’ working conditions and collective organizing efforts (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2016) and am currently researching digital journalism, its production practices and labour conditions, and genderI also collaborate with Greig de Peuter, Enda Brophy, Kate Oakley, and Marisol Sandoval on Cultural Workers Organize, a SSHRC-funded research project that examines how cultural workers globally are responding to precarious work in the creative economy through collective organization, policy proposals, and alternative work practices. My research has been featured in Jacobin and U of T Magazine.
