I received some inquiries about what have I been up to lately. First of all I am teaching an introduction to Science and Technology Studies at UT Austin and just got some amazing mid-term video assignments handed in by my students. I will post examples soon - need to clear the copyrights first;)
Besides that I have engaged in one of the most antisocial activities known to man: writing a book. It is almost finished and will be called 'The will to write oneself'. Building on the Governmediality concept that Boris Traue and I are developing I offer a media-theory driven analysis of digital identity and self-writing policies in German Digital Government programs. a couple more weeks and the manuscript will go off to publishers. keep fingers crossed and in the meantime please go an listen to Robert Harrisons new 'Entitled Opinions (about Life and Literature) ' podcasts!
