CHING HUNG(洪靖)

Ph.D. Candidate at the Department of Philosophy, University of Twente, Netherlands.

BACKGROUND

What is the position and status of technology when it goes into the realm of politics between nature and society? With the concern of environmental sustainability, I have completed a master's thesis on green architecture and appropriate technology and earned a master's degree in STS (science and technology studies). Besides this major background, I also have a bachelor's degree in nuclear science and one year (2012-2013) doctoral training in sociology.

RESEARCH

After justifying the politically positive roles that technologies could play for "doing" green politics in the thesis, I turned to philosophy of technology because of my further curiousness about the relationship between political materials and material politics: how could/would they fit and deserve each other? Thus, in September 2013, I moved from Taiwan to the Netherlands and joined the Department of Philosophy at the University of Twente as a Ph.D. student. Based on the concept of technological mediation, I am now focusing on how mediating power that technologies export can be justified and allowed in a revised model of democratic politics, which concerns not only humans but also nonhumans. Figuring out a new understanding of democracy to include various technical artifacts for a nature-society association is the primary goal of my doctoral research.
