Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow in the Institut fuer Sozialforschung at the Frankfurt University (Germany). He has published articles on the social theories of Walter Benjamin, Herbert Marcuse and Michel Foucault and is now investigating Siegfried Kracauer's critical theory of media and politics focusing on film, propaganda, and the mediated public sphere. His current work expands the scope of his research by analyzing the interplay between media and urban spaces in East Asian cities like Shanghai, Tokyo and Seoul.
