*New podcast: *Nanna Thylstrup talks about the digitalisation of the
archive and its implications. She deeply analyses two consequences that
both emerge in individual and collective spheres: first, the data shadow
that big data contexts generates to each user; second, the politics behind
the processes of mass digitalization.


Nanna Thylstrup works on the politics of mass digitisation, with a special
focus on cultural memory, territorialisations and infrastructures as well
as human rights perspectives on information assemblages. In 2014 she
obtained her PhD with the thesis Politics of Mass Digitalisation, in which
she explores the digitalisation of cultural-heritage archives from Google
Books to Europeana. She is now part of the interdisciplinary project
'Uncertain Archives', which investigates notions of uncertainty and risk in
big data environments, paying special attention to the themes of power,
subjectivity and knowledge.
