Dr. Ana-Maria Herman’s research examines innovative digital media, their networks and how they participate in transforming subjects, objects and spaces. More recently, she has explored how digital media networks, and particularly ‘apps’, can be employed as vehicles to improve society – focusing on the wage gap issue experienced by women artists. Her most recent research project was featured in a Globe and Mail article by art critic Kate Taylor, “How an app is highlighting the work of female artists”.
