Anthony Longo is a PhD-fellow in philosophy at the University of Antwerp funded by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO). His current research project examines the digital transformation of the public sphere, and more specifically how the current structure of social media calls for a renewed understanding of political agency. He is also co-founder of non-profit organisation “De Virtuele Mens vzw” (“The Virtual Human”), a philosophical platform that stimulates critical reflection of digitization and develops practical tools to deal with digital media in a critical, safe and meaningful way.
