About

Bio

Magdalena Olszanowski is currently pursuing a SSHRC-funded research-creation PhD in Communication Studies at Concordia University, under the supervision of Kim Sawchuk at the Mobile Media Lab, and is a research affiliate at the Topological Media Lab. She obtained her BA honours from the University of Toronto and an MA in Communication and Culture from York University. Her MA thesis was a database documentary, microfemininewarfare: exploring women’s space in electronic music. She has studied digital methods at the University of Amsterdam. Magdalena’s feminist research and artistic practice is focused on the potential(s) of memory, trauma, sexual relationality, mobility, process philosophy and feminist vital materialism to re-frame how we develop, conceptualize, theorize, and interact with new image technologies. Her dissertation is a study of feminist self-imaging practices online in the mid to late 90s.
