My name is Steen Christiansen and I’m associate professor of literature, media and culture at Aalborg University, Department of Culture and Global Studies.

My research focuses on the entanglement of embodiment and mediation, both as embodied mediation and mediated embodiment. With embodied mediation I mean how media materialities oscillate between meaning effects and presence effects, while with mediated embodiment I mean how affect and sensation is registered in human bodies.

My areas of study are uncanny media, the post-cinematic and science fiction because these are the fields where most of the nonhuman embodied experiences are premediated, often in speculative forms.
