Dr Daniel Black

  • I completed my undergraduate education at Melbourne University before receiving a PhD from RMIT University, and have taught at RMIT and Monash University. My primary research interest is the role technology plays in human experience and our understanding of ourselves, from mechanistic models of life and thought to the ways in which our contemporary ways of perceiving and acting in the world are shaped by our ever more intimate relationships with technological devices.

    I am one of the editors of Complicated currents: Media flows, soft power and East Asia, the author of Embodiment and mechanisation: Reciprocal understandings of body and machine from the Renaissance to the present, and have written book chapters and articles in journals including Body & Society, Theory, Culture & Society, The Fibreculture JournalĀ and The Journal of Popular Culture.
