Author Biography - Anne Cranny-Francis

In 2011 I'm finishing my Australian Research Council (ARC) funded project on Touch and New Technologies by completing several pieces of work: a monograph, provisionally titled Touching Technologies; a special issue of the journal Social Semiotics on Touch; a photo-essay based on my exhibition, The Sense of Touch; an essay on Touch and the Archive; and an extended essay on Ron Mueck's sculpture. The Social Semiotics issue features work from researchers in a range of fields including education, museology, sound art, experimental psychology, marketing, and cultural studies - and will be an exciting synergistic read! I'm also working on a new ARC-funded project about Australian writer and socialist, Jack Lindsay - and have made some extraordinary archival discoveries! I hope to write about these very soon too!
