My current work, which is slowly crystallizing into a dissertation, revolves around the unfolding effects of information technologies and their systematization in contemporary society and the political responses they motivate. The dissertation integrates the different topics of research that I find both interesting and vital for understanding ongoing transformations in the societies we inhabit. Additionally, I draw on inspiration from these topics for developing a theoretical language for describing such transformations.
These topics include
- Platform studies
- Political economy
- International relations and geopolitics,
- Media studies
- Political philosophy
- Capitalism in the 20th and 21st century
I'm affiliated with the research project Don't Take it Personal: Privacy and Information in the Digital Age (https://donttakeitpersonal.net/). Working within this project has spurred my interest in privacy and liberalism and informed my theoretical critique of both.
I recently spend some time collaborating with the good people at the Institute for Development and International Relations (IRMO) in Zagreb, Croatia.
