Timothy Erik Ström is an independent writer based in Melbourne, Australia who uses political and philosophical approaches to research the overlapping realms of technology, ecology 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, he 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 low-energy lifestyles.
If there is any time left, he writes science fiction.
