My Phd Project examines how performative radio hosts are redefining our notion of the cultural critic. I will look at how a number of radio hosts on the Danish national radio station Radio24syv use media-made personas to establish an aesthetic kind of cultural journalism and a performance-based cultural criticism.

An expanded description of my project can be read here.

The PhD Project is part of the research project “From Ivory Tower to Twitter: Rethinking the Cultural Critic in Contemporary Media Culture” funded by the Danish Research Council for Independent Research: Culture and Communication (FKK).  

Update August 2017: I am currently a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley
