Laura Lux

Administrator for the Centre for Digital Culture


Laura is a PhD student in the German department at King’s. She joined the AHRI as an administrator for the Centre of Digital Cultures because of her interest in critical and political discourses around new technologies and media. In her own research, she analyses the early films, media practices and texts of the German essay filmmaker Harun Farocki in the context of the West German 1968 student movement and its activism against technological and scientific progress. Besides her GTA teaching at King’s, Laura has been involved as research assistant in the DAAD funded project Circulating Cinema and assisted in the organisation of the two-day workshop “Uncertainty, Turbulence and Moving Image Archives” at UCL and King’s. Before starting her PhD, she worked as a freelancer in the film industry.

Laura holds a BA(Hons) (First Class) in German with English Literature (King’s College London/Humboldt Universität Berlin) and a MA(Hons) in Film studies (King’s College London).
