Anthony Glyn Burton

Master's student, Joseph-Armand Bombardier SSHRC Scholar, Ryerson University

This summer, I'm finishing my master’s studies at Ryerson and York University’s Joint Program in Communication & Culture, where I study emergent political subcultures and digital platforms. In the fall, I’ll be joining the Digital Democracies Lab at the University of Simon Fraser on a SSHRC Joseph Bombardier Scholarship. I’m the co-founder of the Digital Citizenship Cultures Initiative with Ryerson University's Infoscape Lab, and I’m also a researcher at the Open Intelligence Lab at the University of Amsterdam.
