‘In my research, the relationship between digital and analogue media takes 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.Spaces and boundaries have always been core dimensions in my research area. These ultimately gave rise to the idea for our DFG Research Training Group 1681/2 "Privacy and Digitalisation".'
