My work currently focuses on the shifts in socialization occurring in American culture due to the advent and proliferation of digital devices. These shifts are leading to a decrease in quality communication between people, which is the result of the digital environment requiring an economizing of communication. This economization is dangerous to our shared humanity as it removes much of the nuance and breadth from the ideas we are attempting to convey. As digital devices continue to become our primary mode of communication, this economization becomes the new normal and our recessive non-digital communication begins to complement the dominant mode of expression by taking on its economizing means.
