Biography

Simon Perkins is an academic and design researcher in the Faculty of Media & Communication. He is a Pākehā, originally from Te Wai Pounamu (South Island) in Aotearoa New Zealand.

My current research centres on the rhetorical use of the ‘woke’ neologism to diminish social change efforts. This has culminated in the creation of the http://trigg.gr/ archive, which forms the basis of research into 'narratives of injury' and 'affective economies of hate' (as enabled and amplified through social media).

Simon has taught across both undergraduate and post-graduate levels; including PhD supervision. His teaching is primarily focused on contemporary cultural theory and creative practice, and in doing so has significance lecturing experience and dissertation and major project supervision in areas including: digital culture and theory; communication, information and graphic design; web software development and project-management; social media identity construction and performance; as well as short-form screenwriting and experimental film-making...
