Christelle Proulx is a PhD candidate in Art History at the Université de Montréal. Funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, her thesis project focuses on the photographic perspective that underlies the utopian aspirations animating the main platforms and web technologies. Her research interests linger on the various phenomena of online visual cultures, software and media studies, photography and sociology. She has published several articles on the subject and co-directed the book L’agir en condition hyperconnectée: art et images à l’oeuvre (PUM, 2019, forthcoming). She is a member of the Art et site research team (artetsite.org) since 2012, a research project that studies public art, photography and digital cultures, led by her supervisor Suzanne Paquet.
