Daniel Messner

Visiting Predoctoral Fellow (Jan 2015-Apr 2015)

University of Vienna, Austria

I am a historian of science writing a dissertation about the invention of biometry in the second half of the 19th century. My research was funded by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (2010–2013) and the IFK – Internationales Forschungszentrum Kulturwissenschaften.
Besides working on my PhD, I am producing two podcasts. One is called »Stimmen der Kulturwissenschaften«. An interview program about projects in the field of cultural studies. The other podcast is called »Coding History« and is about the history and presence of the digital world.
