Dr Brunton is a digital cultural theorist in the Department of Literary, Cultural, and Communication Studies. His research congregates under five themes: temporality, spatiality, identity, race, and culture; and engages at the nexus of identity and technology. Working through these themes, his current work is in redefining the creole as a technological construct, and theorising it as both method and cultural identity for use as a critical lens.
His work has appeared in the International Journal of Cultural Studies, Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment, Social Media + Society, Souls, Data and Society and in edited collections.
He is a member of the Caribbean Studies Association, the American Studies Association and the International Association of Media and Communication Researchers.
