Job title
PhD Candidate

Technologies and stories about how technologies can help cities circulate rapidly and globally. App-based services, entrepreneurial start-ups, and innovative tech-companies are allegedly the answer to urban challenges. But do digital workers —typically seen as crucial in transforming cities according to Silicon Valley’s recipe— really think, talk, and act accordingly? PhD candidate Mariana Fried is honored with an NWO PhDs in the Humanities to research and answer this question in the coming five years.

This ERMeCC research project is supervised by promotor Susanne Janssen and co-promotors Isabel Awad and Jiska Engelbert.
