Jernej Amon Prodnik is Assistant Professor at the Department of Journalism, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), and researcher at the Social Communication Research Centre, which is based at the same institution. Between 2014 and 2015 he was a post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Communication Studies and Journalism at the Faculty of Social Sciences (PolCoRe research group), Charles University in Prague (Czech Republic). Since 2015 he is a part of an international research centre Desire - Centre for the study of Democracy, Signification and Resistance (www.researchcentredesire.eu). Jernej defended his PhD in media and communication studies at the University of Ljubljana in 2013 under the title "Political Economy of Communication and Structural Transformations of Capitalism". His principal research interests encompass critique of political economy and historical transformations of capitalist societies with emphasis on media and communication. His research also focuses on the wider social context of technological changes and democratic potentials brought by the new information and communication technologies, including historical aspects of the development of media and journalism. In the past he related these interests to different facets of political communication and possible new models of democracy by connecting them to e-democracy and e-participation, public sphere, and potentials for new social movements through/because of the new ICTs. His future research will focus on the social history of journalism. His research is mainly based in different strands of critical theory. Jernej is a member of the editorial board of international journal for critical studies of media, information and power in capitalist societies TripleC: Communication, Capitalism & Critique (ISSN: 1726-670X) and of Slovenian critical journal Casopis za Kritiko Znanosti (Journal for the Critique of Science, ISSN: 0351-4285). In 2014 he published his first monograph entitled Protislovja komuniciranja: h kritiki poblagovljenja v politični ekonomiji komuniciranja (Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana Press). In the same year he co-edited a themed issue of the journal tripleC entitled Philosophers of the world unite! Theorising digital labour and virtual work - definitions, dimensions, and forms together with Marisol Sandoval, Christian Fuchs, Sebastian Sevignani and Thomas Allmer. His authored or coauthored articles and book chapters appeared in journals such as Info, Javnost—the Public, Teorija in praksa, TripleC: Communication, Capitalism & Critique and in edited volumes published at Brill, Palgrave, Routledge, LabCom, Rodopi, Notabene (Ankara) and others. In the past he worked at the Centre of Electronic Democracy (Institute of Ecology, Ljubljana), where he cooperated in applicative-research project on e-participation (co-financed by the Trust for Civil Society in CEE). He also worked as a journalist for Slovenian national newspaper Vecer.
