Assistant Professor Jeffrey Kirkwood will be a fellow at the International Research Institute for Cultural Technologies and Media Philosophy (IKKM) at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany for the Winter Semester 2016/17. His research project, titled “Modal Materialism,” will examine the history of media technologies in the visualization of counterfactual, contingent, and possible states. Professor Kirkwood, who was an Associate Junior Fellow at the IKKM in 2011-2012,  joins other former fellows such as Boris Groys, Georges Didi-Huberman, Tom Gunning, Hans-Jörg Rheinberger, and Harun Farocki.
