I’m Emily van der Nagel, a Lecturer in Social Media at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.

My research interests include social media identities, social media cultures, pseudonymity, anonymity, sexualities, memories, and algorithms.

In 2020, I’m teaching undergraduate media and communications subjects Youth Media: Understanding Media Research and Writing Lab.

I’m on the organising committee of Digital Intimacies 5.0: Structures, Cultures, Power, to be held at Monash University in December 2019.

My latest publication is a book chapter called There is No Anonymity in the Database for the edited collection State Machines: Reflections and Actions at the Edge of Digital Citizenship, Finance, and Art, published online for free by the Institute of Network Cultures. I’m currently co-authoring a book called Sex and Social Media, to be published in 2020 by Bloomsbury.
