Dr Ian Goodwin

Senior Lecturer

School of English and Media Studies

After gaining a PhD in Cultural Studies at the University of Birmingham (UK) in 2003, I moved to Auckland (NZ) where I taught in the Communication Studies programme at Auckland University of Technology. In 2007 I moved to Massey University to take up a lectureship in the School of English and Media Studies. I work on the Massey Wellington campus, where I have supervised several post-graduate students from BA (Hons) to PhD level and where I teach several undergraduate courses in the Bachelor of Communications.

Research Expertise

Research Interests

With a background in cultural studies my research is wide ranging and often inter-disciplinary, yet centres on understanding the societal changes associated with the rise of digital media technologies. I am interested in exploring intersections between contemporary media forms, identity politics, popular culture, activism, citizenship, media policy, consumption, health and well-being, and space/place.
