Elinor Carmi is a Teaching Fellow at the New Political Communication Unit, Royal Holloway, University of London. She completed her PhD in 2017 at the Media and Communications Department at Goldsmiths, University of London. Her research offers a new theoretical framework to examine ways of knowing and power relations in media and communications by using sound concepts. She looks at spam and other deviant media such as noise, and shows how important it is to examine neglected and ‘technical’ media phenomena. Carmi’s research is transdisciplinary, traveling between several fields such as: media theory, media history, law, software studies and sound studies. Elinor is also an activist and journalist who writes in English and Hebrew on technology and gender, digital rights, sound and internet governance. In 2013, she published a book based on her M.A. thesis titled TranceMission: The Psytrance Culture in Israel 1989-1999. She tweets @Elinor_Carmi.•
