My name is Ludovica Price, although I am better known as Ludi Price.
I completed my PhD in Information Science at City University London’s CityLIS, which focused on the information behaviour of fan communities on the internet – my thesis, “Serious leisure in the digital world: exploring the information behaviours of fan communities”, is available online. Since completing my PhD, I have been based at CityLIS’ Centre for Information Science, and am an Honorary Visiting Fellow at CityLIS. My research interests are presently focusing on participatory culture, convergence culture, fan culture, remediation, produsage, prosumers, pro-ams, social metadata, fan tagging and folksonomies, social curation, and commons-based peer production.
Peripheral (but not strictly unrelated) interests also include comics, creative writing and art.
Part time, I also work as Far Eastern cataloguer at SOAS Library.
Easily obsessed and easily amused.
Happy to discuss your participatory culture!
