Fulbright, Filmmaking, Australia
Shared Identities in Digital Media Culture
“My Fulbright research will build upon a project I began in graduate school where I contacted Jessica Walkers all over the world via post, email and telephone calls. I was interested in the ways in which Jessica Walkers experience the world similarly and how these coincidences are dependent on our given name. I also questioned if trust could be established among complete strangers whose only connection was a shared name.”
