MemberCarlo Ierna

My name is Carlo Ierna and I’m currently working as a lecturer in history of philosophy at the Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I’ve previously been part-time, fixed-term lecturer at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (feb-mar and sep-oct 2017 and feb-mar 2018), Utrecht University (Nov 2018-Jan 2019), Leiden University (Sep 2018-Feb 2019), and the University of Groningen (2016-2018). During 2017 I was part of the research team working on the project “From Logical Objectivism to Reism: Bolzano and the School of Brentano”, together with Robin Rollinger and Hynek Janousek, and member of the Institute of Philosophy at the Czech Academy of the Sciences. From January to May 2014 I was a Visiting Fellow in Philosophy at Harvard and in the summer of 2015 at the Brentano Archives in Graz. From 2012 to 2016 I was a postdoctoral researcher at Utrecht University with an NWO VENI research project on the renewal of the ideal of “Philosophy as Science” in the School of Brentano. In September 2016 I obtained my university teaching qualification. From 2009 to 2012 I worked on a postdoctoral project at the KULeuven on the philosophy of mathematics and logic in the School of Brentano.

MemberMichael Stevenson

I’m an associate professor of New Media & Digital Methods at the Media Studies dept., University of Amsterdam (NL). My research interests include a range of topics in web history, software studies and digital culture. I’m currently working on a book project called Making Media New, about the rise and significance of ‘web-native’ culture in the mid- to late-1990s. I am also a founding member of the Digital Methods Initiative (University of Amsterdam), and regularly lead digital methods workshops and projects at our summer and winter schools. I also maintain the webcultures mailing list, an announcements and discussion list for web history and allied fields. I received my PhD from the University of Amsterdam in 2013, and was an assistant professor at the University of Groningen (NL) from 2013-2017. In 2015 I was awarded a Veni personal research grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) for my project ‘The web that was.’ The project concerns the material and symbolic significance of the Perl programming language for the early web, and provides the basis for several case studies presented in my book.
