Bogna Konior is a writer and an academic. She is a Lecturer in New Media and Digital Culture at the University of Amsterdam and 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 in new media theory, politics, and aesthetics oscillates around the subject of the future, in/trans/post-humanism, digital culture, emerging technologies, interspecies & climate media. 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 shifts. Her background is in the creative industries. She collaborated with film festivals internationally, including the Five Flavour Film Festival in Warsaw and the ReVersed: Poetry-film Festival in Amsterdam. She was one of the founding editors of the Hong Kong Review of Books, and previously taught classes in media and culture at the Lingnan University and the Hong Kong Baptist University.
