M. A. Adina Lauenburger

April 2008 to September 2010
Adina Lauenburger holds a Master’s Degree (MA) in German Literature, Theater and Film Studies, and Psychology (Berlin 2003). From January 2005 until December 2007 she was a DFG-Fellow at the Graduate Research Program Media of History – History of Media (Bauhaus University Weimar, University of Erfurt, Friedrich Schiller University of Jena). In Fall 2007 she was a Visiting Fellow at Northwestern University in Evanston/Chicago. Since April 2008 she is researcher and lecturer at the International Research Institute for Cultural Technologies and Media Philosophy (IKKM). Her dissertation project deals with a history of fuzziness as part of the historiography of film. Here, the video image appears as its capable agent, insofar as video images (in feature film) may reflect not only all aspects of fuzziness but also the associated interrelations between medium, aesthetics, and history.
