It is most certainly a time to update my blog because great things have happened. Firstly, I defended my dissertation Disconnect.Me: User Engagement and Facebook March 28 with Professor Richard Grusin as my esteemed opponent. I have received the review statements from the Faculty of Humanities and the dissertation is recommended to be awarded with the highest grade possible in the Finnish academic grading system.
The best news however are that in August I will start as an assistant professor of media theory, Department of Media Study at the State University of New York Buffalo. For me it is an ideal place to teach and to do research. I am really looking forward to joining the Faculty and meeting new people in the area.
