Maurice Stenzel

Maurice Stenzel works as a research coordinator in the project Data & Smart City Governance at the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG).

In this project, data governance concepts and measures are developed in order to reconcile conflicts of interest arising in the course of data-driven innovation between administration, politics, business enterprises and citizens in the best possible way and to enable services of general interest oriented towards the common good. His focus is on interdisciplinary research into social transformation processes through growing data processing and digital networking.

Maurice Stenzel first studied computer science at the Free University of Berlin and then musicology/cultural studies (B.A.) and musicology (M.A.) at the Humboldt University of Berlin. In 2023, he received his doctorate from the Institute of Culture and Aesthetics of Digital Media (ICAM) in the Faculty of Cultural Studies at Leuphana University Lüneburg. In his dissertation, he explored the interdependencies of online technologies and identities in aesthetic practice using the example of collaborative music making on the internet. For his qualitative online-ethnographic study he combined approaches from musicology, cultural and media studies.

Between 2018 and 2021, Maurice Stenzel investigated educational processes in post-digital music practice as part of his work as a research assistant at the University of Erfurt in the research project “LINKED – Musical Education in Post-Digital Communities” connecting Europe-wide ethnographic fieldwork with online ethnography. He is also an associate member of the research area ((audio)) aesthetic strategies at the ICAM of the Leuphana University of Lüneburg and active as a lecturer in university teaching or workshops.
