Andrew Murphie works on process philosophy and a politics of differential social organisation, currently within a “third revolution” in media and communications (AI and automation, VR, data and signaletics, the world as medium). He has specialisations in digital and networked media, interaction, design, theories of affect, mind and world, Deleuze, Guattari and Whitehead, critical approaches to audit culture and managerial and educational uses of pseudoscience, and, more recently, AI and the future, including the future of education. He also works on climate change (and climate change communication) as part of a “catastrophic multiplicity” (at the junction of climate with media and social/economic changes). He was until 2020 an Associate Professor in Media and Communications at UNSW Sydney and has had an extensive working relationship with the good folks at The Senselab in Montréal. He has also been lucky enough to collaborate with Danish researchers in research that is ongoing. He has worked extensively in publishing, especially Open Access publishing, and has a strong interest in changing means of scholarly and para-academic communication.

MemberRomana Radlwimmer

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Augsburg, specialized in Latin American, Latina/o, Brazilian and Iberian Literatures, Cultural Studies and Film. The literatures I investigate in the United Stated (and beyond) are mostly written in Spanish and Portuguese. I am also most interested in indigenous notions and texts. Since 2007, I have been especially working on US Latina/o Literatures, Luso-American Literature (Adriana Lisboa) and Chicana Theory (Norma Alarcón, Chela Sandoval, Norma Cantú, Sandra Cisneros, Lourdes Portillo, etc.) which I have been both investigating and applying in my research as frame of reference on an international scale. I have been presenting in the El Mundo Zurdo Conference in San Antonio since 2009 (a conference organized to honor the life and work of Gloria Anzaldúa), and have been a member of the organizing committee since 2015. Here is my reading on Anzaldúa’s 2015 (posthumous) book “Light in the Dark”, published in August 2016 in Women’s Review of Books: In Europe, I am member of the ISLA (Institute for the Study of the Americas and the Iberian Peninsula) at the University of Augsburg, Germany, member of the AKA (Cultural Analysis Study Group) at the University of Vienna, and member of the ACE Traductores (Literary Translators of Spain). In the latter one, I have been recently translating Harold Pinter and John Barth from English to Spanish for the Spanish Edition of GRANTA (Galaxia Gutenberg, Barcelona) in the Casa del Traductor/Tarazona collective.  Please read my text about this recent experience:
