About

Background

Dr Sandoval's research critically deals with questions of power, commodification, exploitation, ideology and resistance in the global culture industries. In particular her work has focussed on the political economy of online surveillance, social media, alternative media, cultural labour and corporate social (ir)responsibility. Currently she is working on a study that explores the politics of worker co-operatives in the cultural sector. More information on this project can be found here: http://cultural.coop

Dr Sandoval is co-editor of the collected volumes Internet and Surveillance (2012) and Critique, Social Media and the Information Society (2013). She is editor of tripleC: Communication, Capitalism & Critique. Open Access Journal for a Global Sustainable Information Society.

Her book From Corporate to Social Media? (Routledge, 2014) looks beyond common understandings of the term social media by providing a critical analysis of corporate social (ir)responsibility in the global media and communication industries.
