Robert Stock

I am a researcher at the University of Konstanz where I coordinate the DFG-research unit Mediale Teilhabe. Partizipation zwischen Anspruch und Inanspruchnahme. I have a PhD in Cultural Studies from the University of Gießen (2017) and hold a Master Degree in European Ethnography from the Humboldt-University of Berlin (2009). In my dissertation project at the International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture (Gießen) I analyzed postcolonial memory politics in documentary films from Mozambique and Portugal (published with transcript in 2018). In my postdoc project, I analyze the relationships between dis-/ability, music and digital media.

My main research interests are the cultural and media practices of hearing and seeing, digital media and dis-/ability, collaborative film making, ambivalences of audiovisual testimony, and postcolonial memory politics.
