Dr Kelly Lewis is a Research Associate at Queensland University of Technology’s Digital Media Research Centre. She works at the intersection of visual politics, activism, digital culture, and political communication, with a focus on investigating visual social media and digital culture through the lens of social justice, complex activist contexts, and globalised politics. Kelly employs critical digital methods and qualitative approaches to study communication, politics, protest, and everyday culture on digital platforms. Kelly’s PhD research (2020) introduced a new way of studying how visual social media is used to protest unjust deaths, especially those caused by police brutality and forms of state violence, with a focus on Middle Eastern and African American contexts.
