The Sorcerer’s Apparatus is Timothy Erik Ström’s website. He is an independent writer who lives on unceded Wurundjeri land in Melbourne, Australia. He uses political and philosophical approaches to research the overlapping realms of technology, ecology, colonialism and capitalism.
Tim is an editor at the radical publishing cooperative Arena and is the author of Globalization and Surveillance. He is between various shades of precarious employment thorough the University of Melbourne, where he lectures the masters course ‘Digital Politics’; at RMIT University, where he teaches ‘Global Political Economy’; and at Western Sydney University where he works as a casual researcher involved with many projects. He is also a member of the National Tertiary Education Union.
With his partner, UB, and daughter Mirolima, Tim is part of an effort to retrofit a slice of suburbia into a vibrant community with lots of shared projects, food production via lush permaculture gardens and decommodified living arrangements.
If there is any time left, he writes science fiction.
