Katrien Pype is an anthropologist interested in the social and cultural contours of communication. Until now, she has studied how messages were transferred to masses (proselytization via TV serials/propaganda via TV news). Lately, she has started to analyse how people make sense of communication technologies in their daily lives and how it impacts urban lifeworlds.

Dr Pype welcomes students who want to work on all facets of popular culture, technology and society interactions, gender and old age.
