Christoph Brunner’s research focuses on the intersection of media, affect and aesthetic politics. He analyzes contemporary social movements and their use of aesthetic techniques and strategies.
The John G. Diefenbaker Award enables Christoph to conduct research in Canada and spend brief periods gaining further experience at American institutions. Christoph will be hosted at McGill University’s English Department in Montréal, Quebec.
At McGill, Christoph will collaborate with Dr. Alanna Thain and the Moving Image Research Lab. Also, he will be working on a manuscript for the monograph, “Activist Sense: Towards a Political Aesthetics of Experience.”
