Dr Jan Krasni

Dr Jan Krasni is a researcher and a lecturer focusing on multimodal discourse analysis, media studies (especially media ethics), and infrastructure studies. He received his PhD in German and Media Studies from the University of Konstanz, Germany, in 2015. While his thesis analyses the construction of guilt in the digital discourses of German media, his later work deals with the representation of minorities and minority languages in the media, with the problem of ethics in digital media infrastructure for processing personal information, and with the problem of fake news. Before joining the Decoding Antisemitism project he worked as an assistant professor at the University of Niš (Serbia), as a researcher at the Cultural Trends Lab with Lev Manovich at the University of Tyumen (Russia), and as an assistant professor at the Webster University. His work on digital infrastructure and processing of private data in the scope of art-science-activist projects of Share Lab brought him and his team widespread media coverage around the world.
