Teaching

I love teaching and my theoretical research feeds directly into the classroom. I have over seven years of teaching experience, where I was focusing on a wide range of topics such as internet politics, algorithms, the politics of time, metrics, platforms and big data, software and sound studies, internet governance, digital advertising, surveillance, digital labour, privacy, culture studies, electronic dance music cultures,  and much more.

I have several principles which are really important for me in teaching that guide my practice:

  1. Always connect between theory and current events.
  2. Always integrate feminist approaches. Course material must include minimum 50% women authors.
  3. Use science fiction and imaginary scenarios to encourage creativity and critical thought.
  4. Humor is an important tool for criticism (and life!).
  5. Always respect students, their needs and their situations.
  6. Collaborate with practitioners (from fields such as art, journalism and activism) to develop creative and engaging workshops.
