Tim Schütz

Medicine, Science and Technology Studies (MSTS) student and Fulbright fellow at the University of California, Irvine.


I am a trained social scientist with a BA in Media, Communication and Cultural Studies from the University of Bremen, Germany (2012–2017). Currently, I am a master‘s student in Science and Technology Studies (STS) at the Goethe University Frankfurt and the University of California, Irvine (2018-19).

My research interests focus on (alternative) digital technologies and infrastructures, hacker politics and culture, media and migration, critical humanitarianism, institutional ethnography as well as technology in the old age. In 2017, I received the DARIAH-DE DH Award for my Bachelor’s thesis, an ethnographic study on free wireless network activism in the context of German refugee shelters.

I am a fellow of the German National Academic Foundation (SDV) and the German-American Fulbright Foundation.
