Professor Moores is a well-known researcher and theorist whose work is situated in the ethnographic tradition of media studies, and focused on studying practices of media use in everyday contexts. His most recent book Media, Place and Mobility (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012) explores issues of place-making and mobilities, arguing for a ‘non-media-centric’ media studies that critically engages with phenomenology as well as nonrepresentational thinking across the disciplines of philosophy, geography, anthropology and sociology.
