Dr. Hayley R. Crooks is currently a post-doctoral researcher on the eQuality project, a seven-year SSHRC partnership, that examines young people’s experiences and needs regarding privacy and equality in networked spaces (www.equalityproject.ca). In her dissertation “Reel Girls: Approaching Gendered Cyberviolence with Young People through the Lens of Participatory Video” (2018) she analyzes collaborative documentaries co-produced with 112 young women in Quebec, Canada. She draws on her professional background in non-fiction television and film production to work with young people on incorporating their voices in the ongoing ‘cyberbullying’ debates. She actively draws on this knowledge to influence school curricula, write policy white papers (Status of Women Canada) and act in an advisory capacity with NGOs (Canadian Public Health Association). Dr. Crooks has been published in digital magazines such as Cleo: A Journal of Film and Feminism (2013), peer-reviewed journals including Disability Studies Quarterly (Fall, 2018), Jeunesse: Young People, CulturesTexts (2017), and the Canadian Journal of Communication (2015), and scholarly anthologies such as Ethical Practice in Participatory Visual Research with Girls and Young Women: A Focus on Rurality, Indigeneity and Transnationalism (forthcoming) and Inside Jokes: Feminism and Humour(forthcoming).
