My name is David Levente Palatinus. I am Lecturer in Media and Cultural Studies at the Department of English and American Studies of the University of Ruzomberok. In 2014 I was Research Fellow in the Humanities at the Institute of Advanced Studies, University of Bologna, where I return every year. In 2017 I set up the Anthropocene Media Lab at our department.


My research moves between and across visual studies, digital media, and cultural theory. I have worked and written on violence in serial culture, medicine and autopsy, autoimmunity and war, and digital subjectivity in the Anthropocene. I am co-editor of the ECREA section of Critical Studies in Television, and sit on the editorial board of Americana E-Journal of American Studies (Hungary), and Rewind: British and American Studies Series of Aras Edizioni (Fano, Italy). I am co-editor of the volume Crime and Detection in the Age of Electronic Reproduction (forthcoming, Americana Ebooks), and am currently completing a book called 'Spectres of Medicine: The Ethos of Contemporary Medical Dramas' (forthcoming, Aras Edizioni).
