Dr Earvin Charles Cabalquinto is a Lecturer in Communication in the School of Communication and Creative Arts (SCCA). His research works lie in the intersections of digital media, mobilities and migration with a particular focus on critically investigating how migration experiences are shaped by an increasingly digitalisation of a contemporary and global society. He is interested in interrogating the possibilities and limits of digital media use in the conduct of personal, familial and social relations beyond borders. Further, his research advances ways of approaching and researching digital practices in a transnational context by deploying ethnographic and visual methodologies. He has published his works in high-ranking international journals such as Mobile Media & Communication, Media, Culture & Society, Information, Communication & Society, and Telematics and Informatics, as well as in edited book collections. He is actively working on several projects that seek to address the digital needs of migrant communities for civic participation in Australia.
Dr Cabalquinto sits in the editorial board of the International Journal of Cultural Studies. He also serves as an Associate Editor of Philippine- and Asia-based journals. He has been regularly invited by media outlets in and outside of Australia to give expert advice on a range of topics related to digital media and migration. These media channels include, SBS Filipino, The New Mandala, The Newsletter of International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS), Geelong Advertiser, Rappler, and so forth.
