Who is Pinkeee?

Hi! I’m Elinor Carmi, originally from Israel but now live, teach, play, write, think, imagine, dance, and try to find something proper to eat in London. I’m a scholar, journalist, ex-radio broadcaster, activist, feminist, and a huge electronic dance music addict. I also love pink. My research interests have always been about cultures and practices which are considered to be deviant/illegitimate/unwanted and the power and politics behind them. I focus on anomalies, because I believe that looking at what is considered to be irregular can tell us a great deal about what is considered to be the norm.

You can check out my talks, writings, teaching, events/workshops I organized, and the story behind my book TranceMission (published in 2013). Below you can also find info about my past work experience.

2012-Present – PhD candidate at the Media & Communications department, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK.

Dissertation title: Processing spam: Conducting processed listening to (re)produce people and territories. Supervisors: Professor Sean Cubitt and Prof. Marianne I. Franklin.

My research is interdisciplinary. It draws on media theory, media history, new media, media law and sound studies. It looks at unwanted media categories, exploring questions around how they are used to construct people and territories. In particular I look at spam and its historical configuration as noise. I show how spam is a media category that has always existed but with different names in different time periods.
