Eva Giraud is a lecturer at Keele University in the UK. Her work explores the relationship between politics and digital media; especially the opportunities that are created, and problems that are posed, for activists by new technologies. She looks in particular at the dynamic between on- and offline activism, with a focus on the work of environmental, anti-capitalist and animal rights activists. More broadly she is interested in cultural theories that question and challenge existing relationships between humans, animals and the environment. At Keele University she currently convenes the first year module Understanding Culture and second year module Researching Media, Communication and Culture, and also teaches on Making the News and the MA in Global Media and Culture.
