I am Simon Lindgren, a Professor of Sociology at Umeå University in Sweden. I am also the head of DIGSUM. My research is about social interaction, participation, power, and self-organisation in networked online media. I have written books such as New Noise (2013) and Hybrid Media Culture (2013). I use ethnographic methods, network analysis, and text analysis to study the relationship between digital media and society (politics; movements; power; resistance; creativity; knowledge). I have published a number of research papers in these areas.
