Melody Devries

Melody Devries is a PhD candidate in the Communication and Culture Department at Ryerson University. Building from a master’s degree in anthropology from the University of Toronto, Devries's doctoral work uses ethnographic methods alongside sociological theories of material relations, performativity, and real-making to examine how far-right politics become compelling to folks through online practices, and in turn how these politics are dependent upon mainstream social systems. She is a recipient of a Joseph-Armand Bombardier (CGS) doctoral scholarship and lead editor of the recent volume Rise of the Far-Right: Technologies of Recruitment and Mobilization (with Judith Bessant and Rob Watts; Rowman & Littlefield, 2021).
