Professor of Communications

David Morley is a Professor of Communications at Goldsmith’s College, University College London. His research spans both micro-practices of media consumption and macro questions such as the role of media technologies in constituting the ‘electronic landscapes’ within which we live. His research has addressed questions of media consumption, especially in relation to broadcast television and, more recently, the uses of a variety of ‘new’ communications technologies such as the mobile phone. His interests are focused on the role of these technologies in articulating the public and private spheres, and he has done extensive ethnographic work in this field addressing both the functional and symbolic dimensions of communications technologies. He has also works on questions of cultural theory and globalisation - and has focussed on how to develop a non-Eurocentric media studies, within a cultural studies framework.
