BIOGRAPHY: Réka Gál is a PhD student at the Faculty of Information and a Fellow at the McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology. She has completed her master’s in Cultural Studies at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Her work unites feminist media theory and postcolonial studies with the history of science and environmental studies and explores how technological tools and scientific methods are employed to purportedly solve socio-political problems. In her master’s thesis ‘Cosmic Colonial Fantasies’, she explored the historical stages through which outer space colonial fantasies evolved, from ancient Greece until the 18th century. She plans on extending this research during her PhD, to reflect from a feminist perspective on why and how the rhetoric of outer space colonization emerges in the present.
