I am Marcus Burkhardt, lecturer at the chair for Digital Media and Methods at the University of Siegen. From 2015 to 2017 I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Digital Media Lab at the Munich Center for Technology in Society at Technical University of Munich. And in 2016 I was visiting professor for Algorithms, Media and Society at University of Paderborn. Prior to this I was head of the Hybrid Publishing Lab – a research project investigating the future of academic publishing in the humanities – at the Centre for Digital Cultures at Leuphana University Lüneburg.
My academic background is in media studies, philosophy and computer science. I conducted my Ph.D. at the International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture at Justus Liebig-University Giessen on the media history and theory of digital databases. My research focuses on the history and theory of digital media, especially the logi(sti)cs of database technologies, big data, and algorithmic environments as well as on media of knowledge production and dissemination, media philosophy and media theory.
