Larisa Kingston Mann is Assistant Professor of Emergent Media in the Media Studies & Production department at Klein College, Temple University in Philadelphia. Her research examines how oppressed people redraw the borders of spaces, communities and social relationships to make space for autonomous culture, with attention to the ways legal institutions and media technologies open up or shut down spaces for anti-colonial resistance. She has examined this in relation to surveillance technology, pirate radio, street parties, sound systems and wireless mesh networks. Her most recent article “Booming at the Margins: Ethnic radio, intimacy and nonlinear innovation in media is forthcoming from the International Journal of Communication.
