About me


Hi my name is Sophie Bishop.

I am the cusp of filing my PhD as I write this (this feels like tempting fate). I write about three primary themes:

– Visibility strategies, in other words self optimisation labours and folk-testing strategies.

– Understandings and perceptions of  algorithms.

— The political economy of the new media ‘industry’, particulary on YouTube, including talent agents, private/ publicly funded vlogging events and the YouTube Space.
