Nanna Bonde Thylstrup

Associate Professor in the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies at the University of Copenhagen

Associate Professor on the Promotion Programme in Modern Culture. Her research and teaching focuses on data, machine learning and digital infrastructures. She is particularly interested in how digitization and algorithmic processes are changing how we encounter, govern and practice knowledge infrastructures, and the political and ethical dimensions of these changes. She coordinates the European project DALOSS about the politics of disappearance, destruction and dispossession in digital societies. Her most recent book Uncertain Archives: Critical Keywords for the Age of Big Data (co-edited with Daniela Agostinho, Annie Ring, Catherine D’Ignazio and Kristin Veel, MIT Press, 2021) explores the uncertainties of big data infrastructures. Her monograph The Politics of Mass Digitization (MIT Press, 2019) examines different political assemblages of the digitization of cultural memory infrastructures. (W)ARCHIVES: Archival Imaginaries, War, and Contemporary Art (co-edited with Daniela Agostinho, Solveig Gade, and Kristin Veel, MIT Press, 2021) investigates digital archiving as an integral technology of warfare and how artists respond to these changes.
