Gabriela Méndez Cota is a doctoral student in Media and Communications at Goldsmiths, University of London. Drawing on her humanities training, she has worked on issues related to technology, such as technological blind spots in Western philosophy and the status of technology in contemporary critiques of metaphysics. More recently she has been investigating the ethical and political aspects of particular understandings of technology. Her PhD thesis develops a critical interdisciplinary approach, rooted in philosophy and media and cultural studies, to the complex relations between agricultural biotechnology and the cultural politics of Mexican nationalism.
