Michael Dieter (Assistant Professor)
I joined CIM in October 2014 from the University of Amsterdam and the Centre for Digital Cultures, Leuphana in Germany. I hold a PhD in Culture and Communication from the University of Melbourne on media arts practice and theory. My current research focuses on publishing practices after digitisation, cultural techniques in interface and user-experience design, and genealogies of media at the intersection of aesthetic and political thought. I am available to supervise doctoral students on topics aligned to one or more of my research interests.
Media theory; software studies; digital aesthetics; publishing practices; interface studies; new media literacies.
