Bogna M. Konior works across writing, scholarship, as well as cultural and creative industries. She currently researches how media, culture and technology interact with sweeping geo-social challenges, such as climate change, species extinction or automation, which alter current axioms of humanity, technology and political agency.
She is a Lecturer in New Media and Digital Culture at the University of Amsterdam and soon to be a Postdoctoral Fellow in Interactive Media at NYU Shanghai. She was previously a Research Fellow at the International Research Institute for Cultural Techniques and Media Philosophy at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and a visiting researcher in Media and Culture at the ICON Center for the Humanities at the University of Utrecht. She is the editor of Oraxiom: A Journal of Non-Philosophy. Her work is informed by contemporary continental philosophy and critical theory and oscillates around the subject of posthumanism. It currently concerns apocalyptic digital cultures, the legacy of cyberfeminism, especially in postcolonial and post-Soviet contexts, as well as the onto-epistemological underpinnings of climate simulations and new media artworks that engage current environmental and geopolitical crises. She collaborated with film festivals internationally, including the Five Flavour Film Festival in Warsaw and the ReVersed: Poetry-film Festival in Amsterdam, and to this day (occasionally) writes about films. She holds a BA in Film Studies (Theory and Practice, QMUL, London), RMa in Media Studies (UvA, Amsterdam), PhD in Cultural Analysis/Critical Theory (HKBU, Hong Kong), and was previously teaching classes in media and culture at the Lingnan University and the Hong Kong Baptist University.
