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 or species extinction, which alter current axioms of humanity, technology and political agency. She is especially interested in contemporary realist and cyber/tech/feminist philosophy and social theory.
She is the Media and Technology editor at the Hong Kong Review of Books, the editor of Oraxiom: A Journal of Non-Philosophy, and a Research Fellow at the International Research Institute for Cultural Techniques and Media Philosophy at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. In 2016, she was a visiting researcher in Media and Culture at the ICON Center for the Humanities at the University of Utrecht. She publishes widely across academic and popular venues, on the subjects of media, climate change, contemporary philosophy, as well as post-globalist collapse cultures. Her recent work is published in Transformations: Journal of Media and Culture and in Identities: Journal for Politics, Gender and Culture. Her collaborative work exploring theory in the Anthropocene has been exhibited internationally, including at Tuning Speculations in Toronto and First Draft in Sydney. She collaborated with film festivals internationally as a curator and a producer, including the Five Flavour Film Festival in Warsaw and the ReVersed: Poetry-film Festival in Amsterdam. She holds a BA in Film Studies (Theory and Practice), a RMa in Media Studies, a PhD in Cultural Analysis, and was previously teaching classes in media and culture at the Lingnan University and the Hong Kong Baptist University.
