Bree Turner

Bree's PhD is called The Act In Activism; how women perform feminist activism on social media, and why.

Combining ethnography and performance as research Bree’s PhD seeks to make an artefact in the form of a performance that reflects women’s experiences of feminist activism on social media. By using observation of social media sites in conjunction with qualitative interviews, the research will explore the many nuances of women’s motivations for using social media for feminist activism, as well as their personal experience of it. As the project develops into the performance as research phase, the process will be collaborative and provide an equal platform for researcher and participants (co-creators) to explore digital activism and ways women can work together to make positive change.
