Olga Goriunova

is a cultural theorist working with technological cultures, media philosophy and aesthetics. Her research is interdisciplinary and draws upon theories of computing, art, philosophy, literature and film. Her main interests lie in the processes of subjectivation in relation to technology and aesthetics, but also in thinking beyond the human, in terms of posthuman ecologies. She is a founding co-editor of open access peer-reviewed journal Computational Culture, a Journal of Software Studies. Among her books are: Art Platforms and Cultural Production on the Internet (Routledge, 2012) and Bleak Joys: Aesthetics of Ecology and Impossibility (University of Minnesota Press, 2019). She edited Readme. Software Arts and Cultures (Aarhus University Press, 2004) and Fun and Software: Exploring Pleasure, Pain and Paradox in Computing (Bloomsbury, 2014).
