Researcher output profile for Dr Perri Campbell
Dr Perri Campbell has recently joined Deakin after working in the School of Political and Social Inquiry in the Faculty of Arts at Monash University. Perri's research is situated at the crossroads of gender studies, critical social theory, digital media studies and youth studies.
Perri's research concerns the use of digital communication technologies in post-conflict zones. Her research explores the ways in which digital technologies provide a window into life worlds, connect digital Others, and provide a platform for storytelling and different historical accounts to emerge (http://www.deakin.edu.au/deakin-speaking/blog/2391). Perri's current research explores the role social media has played in the lives of young people involved in the political uprisings of the Arab Spring.
Perri has published on gender, war and youth in Australia's leading youth studies journal and in cutting edge feminist journals. She has also written on the late work of Michel Foucault and his concepts of the self:

The project - Capacity Building and Social Enterprise: Individual and Organisational Transformation in Transitional Labour Market Programs - explores the experiences of young people involved in transitional labour market programs in Melbourne's Charcoal Lane Restaurant . Their stories unfold against the background of social pressures and an increasingly competitive labour market.
