As a media sociologist, Kenzie conducts sustained qualitative fieldwork into the role of technology in everyday life and the associated emerging media practices, focusing in particular on the use of mobile and online platforms. Other recent work has also combined journalism studies and language-base area studies for policy related outcomes. This involved multi-national comparative research into contemporary journalism, social media, and foreign policy. His current research agenda, supported by the Connaught New Research Award, engages with the changing patterns of news consumption and information sharing in everyday life. Other areas of interest include Photography and Visual Communication, Surveillance Studies, Terror and Protest. Kenzie’s research-oriented photography has been exhibited internationally at such venues as the Dublin Science Gallery in 2013 and the Venice Biennale in 2012, among others venues in the UK, Italy, and Japan.
