Bogna M. Konior works across a broad range of fields, from media and advertising, to art and culture curation, to academic research and teaching. Her focus is on how media, culture and technology interact with sweeping geo-social changes, especially the threat of species extinction, which alters the definition of humanity and political agency. Her research interests include media, extinction, ecology, and techno-feminism.

She is the Media and Technology editor at the Hong Kong Review of Books, the editor of Oraxiom: A Journal of Non-Philosophy, and the director of the Institute for Critical Animal Studies, Asia. She was recently a visiting researcher in Media and Culture at the ICON Center for the Humanities at the University of Utrecht. Her work in media cultures and the Anthropocene is published in Transformations: Journal of Media and Culture and forthcoming in PostMemes from Punctum Press. Her collaborative work exploring theory in the Anthropocene has been exhibited internationally, including at Tuning Speculations in Toronto and First Draft in Sydney. She hold a BA in Film Studies (Theory and Practice), a RMa in Media Studies, and a PhD in Cultural Analysis. She teaches film and media studies at Lingnan University in Hong Kong.
