« Le style en philosophie est tendu vers ces trois pôles, le concept ou de nouvelles manières de penser, le percept ou de nouvelles manières de voir et d’entendre, l’affect ou de nouvelles manières d’éprouver. C’est la trinité philosophique, la philosophie comme opéra : il faut les trois pour faire le mouvement. » 

Gilles Deleuze

Welcome to my website!

My name is Ania Mauruschat, I am a German media culture scholar and lecturer. Trained as a journalist and as an editor and educated in the humanities and social sciences in Munich, I worked from 2002 to 2012 full-time for the press and public radio stations. Mainly I was reporting about the ramifications of digitization on media, art, literature and sciences. This lead to a special research and work collaboration with the radio drama & media art department of the Bavarian broadcasting station Bayern2 (BR), amongst others resulting in the 15 part interview series „suchmaschine wissen macht“ (2007/08).

From 2012 to 2015 I worked as a scientific assistant, lecturer and project manager at the University of Basel (Switzerland). Since October 2017 I am elected speaker of the consortium Auditive Culture & Sound Studies of the German Society of Media Studies. Since January 2018 I am member of the doctoral programme „Epistemologies of Aesthetic Practices“ at the Collegium Helveticum in Zurich, Switzerland. At the moment I am finishing my PhD at the English Department of the Universiy of Basel, it’s working title being „Radiophonics, Noise & Understanding. Towards an Epistomology of Radio Art“.

My main fields of interest and research as a media culture scholar are sound and radio studies, media philosophy, aesthetics, epistemologies of artistic practices, environmental humanities and energy studies, catastrophes in art and culture, gender and media.

I live in Switzerland and online.
