Professor Hans Krah is a Principal Investigator in the Cyber<>Discourse research area. Here is his contribution:

‘In my research, the relationship between digital and analogue media take centre stage, concerning both interactions and delineation strategies in equal measure. The context of my research is the construction and staging of fact and fiction as related to these media – and the credibility of the world views generated in this way.’

Why he participates in Cyber<>Spaces:

‘Spaces and boundaries have always been core dimensions in my research area, so that the connection to Cyber<>Spaces was always given from the start. Moreover, the scope of the project lends itself readily to the research interests of our DFG Research Training Group 1681/2 Privacy and Digitalization. The RTG has already gained insights that provide a solid foundation for Cyber<>Spaces to build upon.
