Dr Anthony Kelly is a Paris-based digital anthropologist and political communication specialist. He holds a PhD in Media and Communications from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

More broadly, Dr Kelly’s work seeks to highlight the perspectives of users and communities, with an emphasis on examining how people experience and communicate about the lived realities of social and technological change. He is a former lecturer in anthropology, having developed and delivered modules on digital anthropology, political media, and globalisation at Maynooth University, Ireland. More recently, Dr Kelly served as Digital Anthropologist at L’Atelier BNP Paribas, where he designed and directed research on the social and cultural implications of emerging technologies.
