The latest thing (January 2017):
Social Media and Everyday Politics
It’s my book, and it’s out now! Full information is available here, and please feel free to contact me about anything related to it — and if you like it, please review it and encourage people to take a look! You can find the book in actual bookstores: This page has a list of bookstores known to have copies in store (or in their online catalogues), which includes stores in Australia, Singapore, the UK, and the USA! There are the online options of Amazon and Book Depository, as well as direct from Polity and Wiley.
I also have fridge magnets available featuring the book cover — get in touch with me if you’d like one, or hit me up at a conference/talk in 2017!
