I’m Greta Goetz, PhD, an Assistant Professor in the English Department at the Faculty of Philology, University of Belgrade.
For over the past two decades, I have taught higher education. My research is concerned with how networked learning and epistemic fluency can restore intercultural rifts such as the science and technology-humanities divide. Focuses include the meanings and limitations of technoscientific literacy, mnemotechnic retention, and the problem of receptivity in intercultural dialogue.
I have a multicultural background, was educated in Hong Kong, Switzerland, France, the United States, and Serbia, and worked my way through a BA, Cum Laude, from Columbia University. I began my career working for various publications in Hong Kong and New York, including TIME magazine.
A compilation of blog posts I wrote about running can be found at Orange Mud. A sample of my work in Serbian-English translation is the following manuscript available online: Marčetić, A. (2018). After Comparative Literature, Institute for Literature and Art: Belgrade.
This wiki-like digital garden is where I work out thought that usually gets finished in my more conventionally-published work, at least for now. It takes after the wiki model I use in my classes, where cultural knowledge is considered as patterns for care-ful reception and co-individuation. It is currently dedicated to my best friend, who I had the great fortune to know but who sadly passed late this summer. I hope to bring his memory forward in the work that I do.
- Writing a book on re-presencing the postdigital trace and two companion textbooks that draw on pattern design learning. I teach two large classes single-handedly (over 300 students) in addition to postgraduate courses. I have just completed two book chapters and one book review. These will be added to the recent works section.
