Academic Background and Fields of Interest
Dr. Nicholas John is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Communication and Journalism, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Originally from England, where I studied Philosophy and Social and Political Sciences at Cambridge University. My doctoral research was carried out in the Department of Sociology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. My Ph.D. dissertation was the first academic study of the Internet in Israel. My research interests include technology and society, the Internet, new media, Web 2.0 and sharing.
I am the author of the book, The Age of Sharing, published by polity. This book offers an innovative approach to sharing in Web 2.0, specifically by linking it to sharing in other social spheres, namely, consumption and intimate interpersonal relations. I teach BA and MA courses about the complex interrelations between technology and society.
