Professor Kieran Tranter is looking for PhD/MPhil candidates wishing to explore the cultural transformation, and legal responses, to social media and the proliferation of mobile digital devices in Global South communities. Candidates are encouraged to focus in detail on a specific nation or cultural group and proposals examining Africa, South America or the Pacific would be particularly welcome. Candidates with an interest in post-colonial legal studies, cultural legal studies and/or lived experience with the cultures and laws of the specific nation or cultural group are particularly encouraged. This topic is led by the QUT School of Law within the Datafication and Automation of Human Life research group.
