Hello HASTAC! Sorry for the extremely late introduction, it's been an incredibly busy month and I've just had time to start looking around.
I'm Ian Alan Paul, a PhD student in UC Santa Cruz's Film and Digital Media Program (a practice-based PhD) that is working conceptually through the discourses of postnational human rights, feminist citiques of human rights, and how various networks organize in relation to human rights. I also have a deep interest in database aesthetics and actor-network theory, and will most likely be producing a database video project for my dissertation on the aforementioned topics. I have about a year of coursework left, and am currently teaching at UC San Diego for the Fall quarter.
Looking forward to getting to know you all (digitally) and sharing ideas!
