„Style in philosophy strains towards three poles: concepts, or new ways of thinking; percepts, or new ways of seeing and hearing; and affects, or new ways of feeling. They are the philosophical trinity, philosophy as opera: you need all three to get things moving.“ Gilles Deleuze, Negotiations 1972 – 1990 (1997)
My name is Ania Mauruschat, I am a German literary and media scholar and lecturer focusing on radio and radio art research. Trained as a journalist and as an editor and educated in the humanities and social sciences 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, sciences and literature. 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 2003 to 2004 I cooperated for the Bavarian broadcasting station with the chair „Experimental Radio“ at Bauhaus University Weimar (Germany) and from 2009 to 2011 I was a member of the Munich research group of the international and interdisciplinary research collaboration „Gegenwelten / Counterworlds“ at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (Munich). 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 are the transnational medium radio and electronic art, especially radio art as one of the oldest and most innovative and flexible electronic art forms.
I live in Switzerland and online.
