  • Dr Jai Mackenzie

    My primary expertise lies in online parenthood, with my research focusing on how parents build identities, communities, social support and expertise in digital contexts. I am currently working on a British Academy funded project that explores the role of digital media in the lives of LGBT, single, and/or adoptive parents in the UK.During the coronavirus pandemic, digital media has become absolutely essential to the maintenance of our work and social lives, and even our basic survival. As we shift more and more of our daily practices to the digital sphere, we are seeing unprecedented levels of information, advice and social support being offered online. This will be new to a lot of us, at least at these levels, but it is old news to many of the people involved in my research, who are often parenting in extra-ordinary circumstances. The phenomenon of parenting with connection that I have observed in the lives of marginalised families is now becoming relevant to many more people and situations, as we begin to access extra-ordinary levels of social support, expertise and community building through digital networks and technologies.
