I am the Professor of Cultural Information Science at the University of Amsterdam, and for over 30 years have worked on the history, practice, theory, and performance of information and technology in cultural institutions and society. My research has been deeply embedded in the fields of museology, history and sociology of science, post-colonial studies and information studies in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe. My research has focused on diverse topics ranging from the first digital collection projects in museums and universities in the 1970s, to the history of knowledge and its ontologies, to the history of digitality, to the more recent emergence of the digitality and ubiquitous computing.
