Author | Media Scientist | Lecturer

Marcus Gilroy-Ware is a British writer and academic who works on media, culture, politics and big tech. He is a Senior Lecturer in digital media at UWE Bristol, and is author of Filling the Void: Emotion, Capitalism and Social Media (2017) and After the Fact? The Truth about Fake News (2020).

Through his work, Gilroy-Ware explores the underlying political, psychological and social factors that drive the many uses of popular digital media, having once been a technology developer who became frustrated with the sterile, simplistic narratives often used to frame technology and its impacts.

Gilroy-Ware also advises cultural organisations on their communication and technology strategy, and has worked for Goldsmiths, University of London, the Studio Museum in Harlem, and The Sociological Review.
