Nanna Verhoeff appointed as professor Screen Cultures & Society
Screen Cultures and Society
The chair of Screen Cultures and Society focuses on the wide diversity of screen technologies and practices, and their role within culture and society. This field is approached from a combination of historical, theoretical and media comparative perspectives on processes of change and transition. The focus will be on the impact of mediatization, digitization and datafication on (urban) public spaces, specifically on how screens shape situated experiences, encounters, interactions and relations within these spaces. With this specialization, the chair connects to international developments within screen studies, digital media studies and cultural analysis
Nanna Verhoeff publishes on various screen media such as (early) cinema, mobile screen media, art installations, urban screens and media architecture. She is program coordinator of the Research MA Media, Art & Performance Studies, initiator of the research group [urban interfaces] and participant in the research platform Transmission in Motion. For the Faculty of Humanities, Verhoeff has co-initiated the Creative Humanities Academy – a LifeLong Learning infrastructure for post-academic education for arts and culture professionals.
