Dr Patricia Prieto-Blanco

Lecturer in Digital Media Practice

Research Overview

My areas of expertise are visual methods of research and photographic practices. I have worked ethnographically with transnational families and explored how they incorporate photography in everyday routines, addressing media practices in the contexts of migration, kinship and intimacy. My latest research inquires into the performativity of images in the context of activism, online and offline. I am an advocate of interdisciplinary, participatory and practice-based research.
