Research: Broadly interested in the various intersections between Visual Culture and everyday life, Gary’s specific research interests fall into two distinct categories: Firstly, the politics of visibility and the construction of political visibilities specifically in relation to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict/Israeli occupation in a post 2005 context.

The second area of interest is examines how sociology and visual studies combined can be used to conceptualize how futures are being presented, mediated, performed, designed, narrated or imagined through a range of visual practices.
