Matthew Hockenberry


Matthew Hockenberry is a media historian and technologist whose work focuses on media structure and materiality. His work examines critical developments in the epistemology of assembly to speak to the conditions of the world apparatus of production. His PhD research at New York University’s Department of Media, Culture, and Communication developed a history of logistics, tracing the impact of media forms and material practices on decentralized production and the mediation of manufacture throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. He is particularly concerned with the transitional moments of mediation found within histories of paperwork, telecommunication, and computation.
