Professor Chun’s current work focuses on the nature of networks and human interactions: What are networks and how do they matter? How do they differ from one another? How are they experienced and negotiated—what feelings of paranoia, empowerment, and inclusion/exclusion do they engender? She directs an international project called Habits of Living, an inquiry into the networked conditions of our times, and how they produce ways, conditions and habits of life and living. She has also been active in net politics and feminism.
