Ioanna’s research interests lie in the fields of digital culture, media studies, network cultures, museums and visual culture. She critically engages with the ways that contemporary culture corresponds to the changes and dynamics of digital technology while she is further concerned with the politics of communication as performed in the network by institutions and individuals alike. In addition, she studies the status and theory of the technological apparatus and the relation of analogue and digital media. Furthermore, she is interested in how Greek culture and heritage are represented and manifested online in relation to national narratives and socio-political structures.
