Guy Hoskins recently received his doctorate from York University’s Communication & Culture program. His research focus is on the global political economy of digital media, and particularly its intersection with questions of communication policy and digital rights. His recently-defended dissertation – nominated for a York University Dean’s Dissertation Award – examines these concepts through a case study of a pioneering Brazilian framework of civil rights for Internet users. He is also presently working as Project Manager for the Global Media and Internet Concentration Project led by Prof. Winseck at Carleton University, and will be joining the team as a post-doctoral research associate in 2022. He has recently taught courses for McMaster University, Ryerson University and the University of Toronto examining the political economy of digital media, as well as the role of communication technologies in social change.
